We do not having pricing information yet. Once Phil finishes sculpting the base & the molder/caster starts his work, we should have pricing information. Although he stands around 15" tall, he's still in scale with the others in the series. He just happens to be a larger monster comparatively than the others.

Updates!

Sales of the first two Saturn Ltd Outer Limits kits were very low!:confused: The Chameleon and Aros aren't my favorite figures from the original Outer Limits but the Thetan (a more iconic figure) from the Episode "The Architects of Fear" is one of my favorites.
Guys, I would really like to see this kit produced, as I'm sure some of you would. Lets encourage Saturn Ltd. If you (like me) would definitely get the Thetan kit, respond to this thread. Or better yet, send a PM to SaturnLtd and tell him "I want my Thetan!"

Yes, I am part of the team involved in producing the Saturn Ltd Outer Limits kits. I sculpt the bases for the kits...at no charge! That's one thing Saturn LTD does to keep the cost of the kits so reasonable. This "project" is by no means a money-making venture. Those involved are BIG FANS of the original Outer Limits series.

Anyone know anything about the set of 'The Outer Limits Creature collection' being produced in Japan and apparently starting with what looks like an excellent reproduction of the Thetan.

Personally while I think the Ebonite and Zanti are excellent they were, as everyone probably knows, released by sideshow a while back and some new figures would be appreciated. If the Japanese intended a few releases, which hopefully they do, they're making the right choice starting with the Thetan.

Personally I hope they follow it up with the Megasoid from one of my favourite episodes and Adam Link from the 'I Robot' episode...other favourites would be the Ichthyosaurus Mercurius from 'Tourist Attraction' and the monstrous plant taken over in 'Counterweight'

The model kit- by the way - is excellent and Id love to buy it if it becomes readily available.

If you ever contemplated releasing the Megasoid ( not everyones cup of tea I know ) would you give it 'real' fur ??

XPlus is producing a line of 1/8 scale (9-10" tall) plastic OL figures which I think is pretty cool. Glad to see the characters getting deserved attention. IIRC, the price will be around $79.99 for the Thetan.

The resin model kits we're producing are a large 1/6 scale (roughly 14-15" tall). I don't have pricing yet on our Thetan, we're still waiting on a production window with our molder/caster. Here are some pictures of the Saturn Ltd Thetan:





I will update again with more info on timeline & cost.

Thanks for looking.

:)

Any chance this is going to be available over here in the UK ?

And is there any indication as to what else X-Plus is going to be releasing. ??
We have customers in Australia, so I don't see any reason why not. Shipping would obviously be more expensive than domestic US. Really no idea which characters XPlus is releasing, only seen the Thetan so far.

So after the Thetan any more Limits 'bears' planned ? Naturally a quality model of the dread Megasoid would be great Id also go for Adam Link and the prehistoric creature seen in Tourist Attraction... namely those which werent released by Sideshow...

Beautiful sculpture of one of my favorite Outer Limits episodes.
I can still remember the scene at the end when he's dying and raises his hand to make the secret sign of affection to his wife and she bursts into tears realizing that this alien was actually her husband. I don't mind saying it brought a tear to my eye.

I don't think Ive ever seen these kits being retailed...Ive only ever seen a couple of the previous kits on ebay but never seen them advertised...can you recommend a few sellers ?? Thanks.
I'm not sure what you are asking but I got a few Outer Limits kits (2) from Lunar Models and 27 Out Limits kits from Dimensional Designs. I've built the 2 Lunar kits and 7 of the Dimensional Designs. Currently working on the Megasoid I have him built and primed but that's all. Working on other kits now.

Outer Limits figure kits

Megasoid,
Take a look at "My Photos" and you will see a few of the Outer Limits figures (from Dimensional Designs) that I have built.
Chinxy, there's even a photo of the Megasoid that I built and painted. I based my color scheme on the build-up that Danny S did. I was visiting him (in San Francisco), when the kit was first released.

rhinoctopus nicely made up kit but despite that range of kits being nice I think theres something not quite right with the megasoid... ok the costume may not be the best ever but somehow that model looks a bit spindly it lacks the power the tv megasoid still manages to exude...Nothing wrong with the way youve made him up he looks well constructed.

on a different subject have you seen the second model in that creatures range...the Ichthyosaurus mecurius from Tourist Attraction and if its as good as the pics Ive seen its going to be great...imagine em doing two of my most wanted aliens and thank goodness so far they decided not to duplicate sideshows stuff. Hope Im going to be able to get em in the UK.

Megasoid

Megasoid,
I'm on holiday in the state of Minnesota right now. When I return to Oregon I'll have to send you photos of a profile view of the Dimensional Designs Megasoid kit. Then you can truely judge if "it's" too spindally for your liking. I don't know if anyone else has produced a kit of the Megasoid, so it's the best rendition available.
As for the Ichthyosaurus kit that D Design has...it is beautiful! It even comes with a small statue of the "ancient creature". Sorry, I haven't built the one I have (yet), so no photos. Check out their web site.

I really wish we could get the Dimensional design kits in the UK. Unfortunately customs charges make buying stuff from the USA a bit prohibitive. Im just hoping forbidden planet stores here will stock the japanese Outer Limits stuff.....

My desire to buy them was a bit diminished when I discovered it wasnt possible to get the Thetan. Now ironically after numerous years waiting it seems two thetans are to be released simultaneously.... I cant understand why sideshow never released the Thetan.
