Thanks for that. No sign of the AMT Interplanetary UFO/Leif Ericson kit though. Looks like Amerang are only bringing in selected items.

I liked and have owned several of the Aurora/Monogram 'Movie Monsters' over the last 40-odd years. The only one that really bugged me, though, was the one [and this annoyed me, even as a kid], they called 'Frankenstein'. Which version was it meant to be? Which actor? The only one it couldn't be was Bela Lugosi, yet it's modelled in his stance as the blind monster from 'Frankenstein Meets The Wolfman' [1943]. The sculpt isn't him. Nor is it Boris Karloff, Lon Chaney Jr., or Glenn Strange. I have made this several times, and the face sculpt still bothers me. And yet, The Mummy is definitely Lon Chaney Jr.'s Kharis from 'The Mummy's Tomb/Ghost/Curse'. Great fun kits [lots and lots of seam filling aside], but variable in quality. My favourites were the non-movie models 'The Witch', and the 'Forgotten Prisoner Of Castel Mare'.
