Building a Better Space Invader: War Of The Worlds Alien Creature Model Kit by Pegasus Hobbies
I just noticed this the other day: Pegasus Hobbies has recently released an alien creature model kit based on the invaders from the 2005 version of War of the Worlds.
While model kits of the alien invaders and the manta ray-like war machines from the 1953 version of War of the Worlds are in no short supply, this is the first model kit I've seen that's based on something from Steven Spielberg's version of the classic H.G. Wells' novel. This highly detailed kit comes with a logo display base and an alternate neck for posing options, and Monsters in Motion currently has it on sale for a pretty low price. Now all we need is for Pegasus Hobbies to release a model kit of the jellyfish-like, ethereal tripods from the same movie, and we'll have a complete set ready to terrorize Tom Cruise all over again.
