Yes, at least we tried! Saw your pic over at Hobby Talk, nice to meet another Aurora person!

The garage is filled with the fixtures for our bathrooms which are in the middle of a remodel. Once that's done I have a small table of resin kits I need to finish but I think I want to finally start building the rest of my original Auroras. The original ones I've built so far are the Men from U.N.C.L.E., The Penguin, Wonder Woman, Zorro, Captain America and Superboy. I do have two Monogram-Revell Supermen built with the George Reeves and Chris Reeve heads and the same of Batman with the Adam West head and Robin with the Burt Ward.

Like I said, I'm feeling a little Aurorish coming on......

Thanks Denis! I'm as happy as a pig in the proverbial!
Hi Michael, I'm a certified Aurora freak as well!! There's a few of us hiding here and there....
 I have Blackbeard, Robin, Scotch Lassie, Big Horn Sheep, Fay Wray prototype kit all on the go at the moment. Possibly a couple more too! I'll finish a couple soon I hope....

Chris. :)

For what it's worth, the Godzilla prototype is owned by Phil Ceprano (sp?)  He has a couple of videos posted on YouTube that show it in great detail. Phil has an extensive collection of all things Aurora, and he owns the Mutant and Phantom prototypes as well.

Does anyone know of any other prototypes Aurora commissioned that never made it into production? Was Aurora thinking of issuing a Mole Man or a Flying Saucer Man?

 ???

I for one would have been very excited to have seen a Metaluna,, when I was a kid. Even now. So very cool.

Haven't been here for awhile, lost the job and the link to the board was on the work computer. Earlier this year, 2014, I was at Monsters in Motion with a couple of friends and the owner Terry asked us if we wanted to see something rare. It was the Metaluna Mutant like this thread has been talking about. I was the only one in my group that knew what it was and of course, curses, it wasn't for sale.

Wow Richard !...I think that is one of the Original 12...These are all very rare with only 26 made in the whole World!

What's amazing to me that in almost 15 years they couldn't sell 24 of these and still had a couple left.......

Aurora never had plans for a Mole Man or Saucer Man. They  did have plans for a 2 foot Kong that would have held that Fay Wray prototype and gone with the giant Tyrannosaurus they did for Prehistoric Scenes. I don'r believe a prototype was ever made though. I know there were also several more Prehistoric Scenes dinosaurs planned that never got beyond the sketch stage- a stegosaurus and Parasaurolphus. They also had a Riddler kit that never got past the sketch design stage too.
Crazy am I? We'll see if I'm crazy or not!

I believe at least one Riddler is out there somewhere...


I would have liked to seen these Monsters of the movies set pieces along with  Godzilla and the Tokyo Tower
