Amok Time is a great store, and I really dig their in-house bran Monstarz, which has included the likes of Elvira, the Killer Klowns from Outer Space, and the upcoming Herbert West, Re-Animator. But their latest reveal changes things up, as they move away from 7″ scale figures into a more retro style for a special Day the Earth Stood Still two-pack featuring alien Klaatu and his robot ally Gort.
Both figures look great based on these images, and I think Klaatu and Gort are prime candidates to make the most out of the retro aesthetic. I love the simple, iconic silhouette of Gort, and the alternate head for Klaatu is a great idea, one that allows his helmet to not look too big as if it were a removable accessory.
For the first time ever “Monstarz” debuts it’s retro styled Gort and Klaatu retro action figure set available thru Amok Time!
“From Out Of Space… A Warning And An Ultimatum!”
A robot and a man . . . hold your collection spellbound with new action figures from another planet. An alien, KLAATU, stands 4in tall with interchangeable heads and 7 points of articulation. His mighty robot, GORT a form of robot policemen, stands 5in tall with 5 points of articulation.
They bring an important message to your collection:
“Join us and live in peace, or pursue your present course and face obliteration. We shall be waiting for your answer. The decision rests with you!”
