Collectible Time #24: AMT Mr. Spock Lunchbox and Atlantis Earth vs the Flying Saucers model kits

Got a couple new releases from Z&Z Hobbies... 

First up is an oldie-but-goodie: the classic AMT Mr. Spock-vs-Three-Headed-Snake kit, now in a colorful, barn-shape lunchbox!!!

As you can see, the lunchbox's design is pretty, darn colorful, and in the wake of dear Leonard Nimoy's passing, this reissue is supposedly selling fast. Glad to have gotten one.

Also, upon purchasing the Spock model, nabbed the Atlantis "Earth vs. the Flying Saucers" 5" kit. This one generally goes for $20. (I got mine a tad cheaper, if I may be so bold to brag.) Anyhow, it's an inexpensive tribute to the Ray Harryhausen '56 classic, which features two saucers, optional backdrop, lighting effects and great box artwork. Hot-diggity!!!

  1. Just wanted to mention (as a side note to the Spock kit post) that Grace Lee Whitney, Trek's Yeoman Rand, passed away May 1. (The news broke today, May 4.) I always liked Whitney and Rand, and the character's absence is most conspicuous in season two. Wish she had more screen time in the theatrical adventures, but her cameos are still worthy of note. RIP, Ms. Whitney.
