"DANGER, DANGER, WILL ROBINSON!"
Probably one of the better known quotes from Sci-FiTV that ranks up there with "Beam me up, Scotty" and "You have entered...theTwilight Zone". With the release of the movie "Lost in Space", thedemand for the original series kits has escalated. The only kit producedfor mass markets was the old Aurora kit that was re-issued several years back by Polar Lights. Polar Lights went out of business, but according to what I have been told, is back in business with the original owners. Apparently the Chariot kit is unique to Moebius, though I could have bet that it was an old Aurora or newer Polar Lights kit. However, sci-fi kits are not my area of expertise so I'll go with what I've been told about this. Regardless, it is nice to see it released on its own without having to buy the larger kit.
This is probably a good marketing idea from Moebius to provide these smaller bits of larger kits. Many may not have room for the larger robot and want something simpler to assemble and paint. Judging by the rapidity of which these were disappearing from the LHS shelves, I'd say they are on to something.
