Polar Lights Model Kits: Another stupid idea from Polar Lights!?!

[UPDATE 4/8/2019] We assure this is a real release! We purposefully announced in on April Fool’s Day to keep you guessing. Surprisingly, Round 2 has always gotten positive reactions to April Fool’s Day news. We expected no less with this one, but unlike announcements from our diecast cube-neighbors, those of us on the model kit side will deliver (this time at least). Look for the kit in late May or early June. It is available noe to pre-order form your favorite retailers.

Are you ready for UNSPEAKABLE HORRORS FROM OUTER SPACE who PARALYZE THE LIVING AND RESURRECT THE DEAD!?! It will be LIKE NOTHING FROM THIS WORLD!

Polar Lights’ next great release may be unexpected (or maybe EXACTLY what you expected.) Hold on to your hats and get ready for a STUDIO SCALE model of the flying saucer from PLAN 9 FROM OUTER SPACE! Keeping true to our reputation, we have gone to great lengths to research every last detail of the filming miniatures used in Ed Woods’ infamous film.

It features plenty of super-cool… features… like a clear dome which were inadvertently painted over in the movie. It would have shown the true form of the mind-numbingly horrific alien invaders. (They were probably too true to the REAL aliens that crashed in the Nevada desert and covered up by the government.) It also comes with what we are calling a DELUXE DISPLAY-O-MATIC device which allows the model to defy gravity and not crash on the floor. It will also come with a decal sheet featuring the movie poster art and 1/25 scale bumper stickers.

Look for the kit SOON! (probably sooner than you think… unless you think it is coming out NOW! or… NOW! or next week! Or the week after! Or the week after that! Maybe the week after that! Maybe…)

    Hope this is real! I’d get at least 3 of them!

  2. Jerry Conner says:

    Well, the actually “effects miniature” was indeed the Lindberg UFO kit, and Round 2 does own the rights…

    I am very pleased that Round 2 models is going in this direction
    I have always had a love for these old B-movie ships would love
    for Round 2 Models to produce subjects like the MARS-1 from the 1951 movie FLIGHT TO MARS!

    I thought I wasn’t going to get April fooled today. I just did!

  5. Anonymous says:

    Sigh. I wish this were a real kit… I’d buy one…

  6. Tomh says:

    Is there any chance of more Forbidden Planet kits?

    I would love to see a kit which includes Robby’s car, a couple of laser cannons, and some more crew members – all in 1/72 scale!

    Keep up the great work!

    If this is real, I’ll eat my 1/48 Eagle Transporter, aluminum parts and all. With Sweet Baby Ray’s. Then, I’ll buy two.

    Very cool. I hope it comes with the decals to build it as the original Lindberg Flying Saucer kit too. I love it!

    Where’s the to-scale, sound-chipped Dudley Manlove figure stomping his little feet saying “You see? You see? Your stupid minds. Stupid, stupid!”? 😀

    A similarly complex kit to research and produce is from 1959’s ‘The Cosmic Man’ – a smooth, white sphere!

    1/350 next! With a Vampira figure.

  11. Brian Drumm says:

    In my opinion, a better executed April Fool than NPR’s “Greenspan: The Musical.” story.

  12. JamieH says:

    We assure you all. This is a real release. Thanks for having fun with the news!

    • Nick says:

      Nice to see the kitch kits being given the light of day but I would much prefer 10 new tool Space 1999 Eagle Transporters in 1/72 TBH.

  13. MattG says:

    Looking forward to this one!

  14. Charlie D. says:

    Great to see this released again, curious why we haven’t seen any news on this blog about the Star Trek Discovery kits?
