Gort & Klaatu Are Orbiting Amok Time

gort-klaatu-featThe Day the Earth Stood Still stars get the retro toy treatment from Amok Time.

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.

This set should be hitting Amok Time this fall, but it’s up for preorder on their site right now.  If you want to add these two to your retro collection, Click Here.

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!”
