Something parents would buy for their kids if they wanted them to get a head. I will have to sit in the penalty box for five minutes for that. OK I am back. I do believe there was a bit of controversy over this kit thus it is a bit less common but then again are most of the second generation Aurora kits. I see the first generation kits all the time which would be the Universal Monster Movie models. But the other kits not so much. Those would be Bride of Frankenstein, Forgotten Prisoner, Mr Hyde and this kit. It is a bit smaller scale than the monster models perhaps this is 1:15 scale.
The feature of this kit is that it is a working model. The blade goes up and down and the prisoner's head goes off and back on. Hours of fun for the whole family. The head falls into the basket and the crowd cheers while Madame Defarge knits or whatever it is that she does.
This is an original Aurora kit but it is missing a few pieces. Luckily I can get the extra parts from the Polar lights reissue which I have sitting around in my spare parts trunk.
