Week 4 of my Countdown to Halloween begins now! This week's theme is "BEYOND THE STARS AND BENEATH THE WAVES: A Week of Space Monsters and Sea Creatures!" When it comes to space monsters, you don't get much more spacemonstier than this: it's The Metaluna Mutant by Diamond Select, from the Universal picture "This Island Earth." Let's go!
|The Metaluna Mutant and the Interocitor|
|A Face Only a Mother Could Love... A Mother on Lots and Lots of Drugs|
The sculpt and paints on this guy are amazing. The Metaluna Mutant is probably the strangest, most outré design of any of the Universal Monsters, and this action figure captures it perfectly. He has a giant exposed brain, weird goggle eyes, clawed hands and feet, and is covered in veins! Yet this doesn't stop him from wearing a stylish pair of slacks, with an "atom" symbol on the belt. Oh, and he's got veins on his pants too! Are his pants alive? Weird.
|Lonely is the Life of a Space Mutant|
|This is the most "extreme" pose I was able to put him in.|
