Here's a shot of Monarch Models owner Scott McKillop with the finished box for Sinbad. He really understands our desire for these kits and is working hard to get them in our hands.

Awesome box art. I'm gonna enjoy building this one. Moebius and Monarch have gotten my styrene figure kit juices flowing again after 40 years.

I met him at Wonderfest and saw a build up. There were some other neat things on the table as well. I am sure Scott is doing as good as he can considering what it takes to start up a company with most of the work being done overseas and a day job at the same time. I am just happy he is making us born again monster modelers happy.

I love that box art and the kit looks great. Thank you, Scott for all the effort you put in to bring us this kit. Well worth the wait.

The Aurora Spartacus and Gladiator are interesting...
I quized him about those at WF, he said they were only on display so folks could compare the sinbad box art to the aurora kits. I was hoping he would do the gladiators, but he said no. I hope sometime in the future someone reissues those, or comes up with new similar kits.

Well that just sucks... kinda deceptive IMHO... I bet those figures would have sold much better than the waste of time James Bond and Odd Jobb that PL did... I still have them in my shop!

thats just downright weird.
normally i defend s.m. whenever anyone gripes about the delays, but here i have to say that the decision to display those gladiator boxes was a very bad idea. there shouldn't be a need to explain to folks that these were "just for comparison"... you never display any product or product art for anything that you dont actually intend to produce.
i understand what he was trying to do, but as it stands he was unintentionally deceptive.
