Not making any demands here, but being astonished over and over by the quality and detail of Moebius kits, I would love to see a whole new B-9 Robot kit. The old Aurora/PL kit was/is great to have, despite the narrow torso and simplified details, but an all new kit in your hands would be, I think, outstanding!
Just a thought...

I think part of the problem with that is the licensing. Since Polar Lights has re-released it they obviously hold the rights. I don't know if any other Moebius licensed products are from that studio but it might not be possible to get the license.

... Moebius already does a Lost in Space robot... along with the Jupiter 2, Chariot, Space Pod...

I recall they saying they have no plans for a new large B-9...

If Dave and Frank are considering this one, I`d like to see it as the Robot and Will Robinson. The recent Polar Lights kit had a nice aculpt of Doctor Smith. But to me, Will and the Robot are a classic pair. Almost in the tradition of a boy and his dog.

Just my two cents worth!

I don't think the license is an issue-the box for the mini robot is identical to the PL box. I believe the PL Robot is also out of production.
It just would be nice to see a more accurate likeness. Ever since '68 it always bothered me that the torso was too thin. As for the other suggestions, like the force field projector, an outfit like Crow's Nest or Jimmy Flintstone can do something like that. And do it very well!
The addition of a Will Robinson sculpt is a great idea too, but I think ol' B-9 deserves a really great updated kit on his own!

I think we've already been told not in the near future. I'm fine with that. Let Moebius explore new items. The Seaview in that size and the Chariot were the best! Now a Big Correct Jupiter 2! look at the other great kits they have produced. They seem to be on the right track. There are kits I'd like to see made, but I'm sure only 3 other people on the planet would want them, so I'll never ask.

I agree with you that MOEBIUS has their hands full by now and that we are indeed lucky that they produce the present kits,but a big and precise B-9 ROBOT might have a great success.And let's not forget ROBBY the robot.;)
