DUNKLEOSTEUS & FOSSIL
42CM POLYRESIN STATUE (PRE-HISTORIC CREATURES)
Star Ace’s “Wonders of the Wild” series brings collectors the Dunkleosteus, the largest fish of the Devonian period. Living 382-358 million years ago, this fish was armored and without teeth, just a jaw of armored plates forming a blade that could cut through anything with more jaw force than any other creature of the time. Growing to almost 9 meters long and over 3.6 tonnes, the Dunkleosteus was an alpha predator, fearing nothing except other Dunkleosteus.
The sculptor has re-created this amazing ancient creature from fossils of the skull and jaws and referencing similar placoderms. This formidable fish is depicted with its jaw wide, ready to bite down on its prey. This polyresin statue has been hand painted by the artisans at Kaibutsuya and is 42 cm long. It is mounted to an environment base with a name plate identifying the scientific name and habitat.
The Deluxe set includes a sculpted replica of the Dunkleosteus fossil as it was found by paleontologists. The fossil replica is also available separately.
In celebration of the 100th Anniversary of the master of movie stop motion animation, Ray Harryhausen, Star Ace is proud to release the Rhedosaurus, a vicious ancient creature unleashed in the modern day. Traditionally sculpted by the artisans of the famed creature shop of Kaibutsuya, this detailed Rhedosaurus statue is made from soft vinyl and stands 12.5" tall.

"X Plus' Maschinenmensch Plastic Model Kit: Mediating its way from your hands to your heart! Fritz Lang’s 1927 phenomenon, “Metropolis” returns in this intricately faithful reproduction of famed creative mind Walter Schulze Mittendorf’s Machine Man “Maria”. The “Maschinenmensch”, the fictional robot from Fritz Lang’s silent film Metropolis, was originally played by German actress Brigitte Helm, both as the titular robot “gynoid” and its human form. In the movie, the robot was created by the scientist Rotwang as an approximation of his former lover, Hel. Maschinenmensch was one of the first, and perhaps most iconic fictional robots ever depicted in cinema, and went on to be one of the primary influences of robotic design in both feature film, television and technology. The ⅛ scale model features Maria in her/its most iconic pose, as it stands with an air of awe and deepest fascination for Rotwang’s greatest creation. The model design itself has been inspired by the original iconic movie poster, along with the chair that MachineMan Maria stands up from, that acts as an appropriately thematic base for the model. As an added detail, avid fans of the classic silent film will appreciate the flavor text found at the back of the throne as well as "HEL" embossed in the iconic Metropolis typeface; a reminder of the original form of Rotwang's obsession.
Height: 10 1/4 inches
