MPC Models: And now for something completely different…

This blog entry is based on true events. Every last word of it. I can assure you. Really…

10-14-blog1

[harp strings]

10-14-blog2

10-14-blog3

[race car sounds. Yes, we know it is in the silent vacuum of space, but race car sounds are cool.]

10-14-blog4

[Eeeeart!]

10-14-blog5

Smallnier: Hey, watch where you aim that thing.

10-14-blog6

Hoodstrom: I think the batteries are worn out.

10-14-blog7

Smallnier: Just shake it a little.

10-14-blog8

[Beeeep.]

Smallnier: See. Told ya.

10-14-blog9

Smallnier: Smile, you’re on Candid Camera.

10-14-blog10

Hoodstrom: Professor Mortonman, it’s Jamie Hoodstrom. We just passed through the laser barrier and we should be able to take a few manual measurements off the Nuclear Waste covers in a couple of minutes.

10-14-blog11

Professor Morton: Alright, Hoodstrom. We are watching you closely.

10-14-blog12

Hoodstrom: Something seems off about these things. Let’s see how big this one is…

10-14-blog13

Hoodstrom: They seem a lot smaller than they did in that footage of the Eagle crashing into waste area 2 last week. They looked like they should have been 8 feet tall or more.

Smallnier: It might be your imagination.

10-14-blog14a

Hoodstrom: I dunno… They don’t look like the ones closer to the center of the field where the waste gets unloaded off the Eagles…

Smallnier: Probably just a different model.

10-14-blog15

Hoodstrom: But they were almost the same diameter as the waste cannisters. When we moved the storage caps off those last week, they were bigger…

Smallnier: That’s because they used the 22” miniature for one shot instead of the 44”.

10-14-blog16

Jamie: What?

Smallnier: Oh, nothing…

10-14-blog17

Hoodstrom: something also seems different about them compared to the ones I see outside my apartment near the Eagle landing pad.

Smallnier: Now, see. That really was an interesting camera effect. You see, the shot used the 22” Eagle miniature. (You can tell it by the fact that it doesn’t have the elbow linkage behind the landing gear) But yet they made the cones at yet another scale to force the perspective in the background…

10-14-blog18

Hoodstrom:… Anyway, these control handles look a lot different too.

Smallnier: You are right. They don’t look anything like Plastruct relief valves. Hey, what is wrong with your eye?

10-14-blog19

10-14-blog20

Professor Morton: It’s an increase in brain activity. Smallnier, get Hoodstrom out of there. I think he is in trouble.

10-14-blog21

Hoodstrom: What the heck is Plastruct? What do you mean different models? These cones must have been built in four different sizes. That is just crazy! I’m losing my mind!

10-14-blog22

Smallnier: Well, it isn’t anything to get too upset about. Hey, watch out for those boxes! In the moon’s lessened gravity they are bound to bounce far up into the air!

10-14-blog23

Smallnier: Okay, maybe not. Let me help you up.

10-14-blog24

Hoodstrom: I’m suddenly in the mood to dance!

Smallnier: Okay, why not? Not one else is around…

10-14-blog25

Hoodstrom: I feel so funky I bet I can jump over the moon buggy!

Smallnier: Showoff! Hey, watch out for the laser fence.

10-14-blog26

Hoodstrom: Wha!?!

10-14-blog27

Hoodstrom: AAAHHH!

10-14-blog28

Stay tuned to this space for some upcoming announcements about MPC’s Space:1999 kits. And this blog was only based on fact so much as the Texas Chainsaw Massacre was based on true events. Your mileage may very…

    So somthing new Space1999 is coming?

    Any Idea when the big reveal will be?
    Any more hints?

    Maybe you guys found the Banana splits buggy molds?
    A new Eagle pod?
    A stungun/commlock kit with an add on electronics pack?

    I hope the fate of Hoodstrom is better than Nordstroms!

  2. Jo says:

    That’ll get people thinking. A nuclear waste Eagle, a moonbuggy with astronaut figures??

  3. Rocketfin says:

    You guys know to much about these TV models. Your scaring us ! LOL

    Thanks for the fun after the long day I had today.

    I hope whatever you come out with is for the 22″ version. My Eagle is up next after the Seaview project I’m working on now. Maybe I’m timing this just right?

    Looking forward to all your new stuff. 🙂

    “And now for something completely different”? Maybe we’ll get some Monty Python in space kits too?

    Anyway all jokes aside : as well as all the Eagle pods I’d like to see an Ultraprobe, that big battlecruiser that appeared a few times and even some larger scale astronaut figures. It would be cool if they could have removable helmets and different faces.

  5. Laters says:

    Something new from Space 1999 sounds very interesting.

    A nuclear waste eagle would be a great addition to the 22 Eagle transporter I have here now.

    A moon buggy in the same scale as the 22 would be nice too.

  6. Mondmann says:

    What about a Swift in 1/48?

  7. Mach7 says:

    Ping, Any to report?

    Bueller…..Bueller…

  8. Chuck says:

    A 44inch Eagle?

  9. Tom says:

    Great stuff! LOL

    So good to see so much going on with sci-fi lately. It’d seemed like a doldrum while Round 2 built other assets up for awhile. Great to see all your warehouse videos. That’s a good opportunity to spotlight your new products.
