This issue, it’s all about the “Bots” as AFM ratchets things up by giving you a component-by-component look at your favorite metallic model monstrosities from the silver screen and beyond. First up is an extensive build on everyone’s favorite nickel-plated nincompoop, Moebius Models’ B-9 Robot from Lost in Space. Next, get ready to make the rounds with Robby the Robot and his custom made ride, The Space Patrol Car. For all you Cowboys, beware of the steely-eyed glare of Creature Features’ Gunslinger from West World! The Mars Attacks gang from Mantic Games is set to invade as a mini-scaled diorama and the classic Rock 'Em, Sock 'em Robots enter the ring for one final showdown! Deckard from Blade Runner gets all lit up again, and Kröte Series 9 Panzer Aufklarungs T.W. 47 goes off to war. We profile styrene giant Atlantis Models, and finally we’ve got not one, but two articles on the ‘70s Cult Film Classic, Silent Running. First, it’s a full-on droid diorama drama with Huey, Louie and Dewey; then as an extra treat, we’ll give you an exclusive interview with Cheryl Sparks, the talented performer who acted as Huey, Drone Number 2. Make no mistake, we are gonna crush, kill and destroy this issue with more models, reviews and stunning photography all laid out in the colorful pages of America’s one and only figure kit magazine, Amazing Figure Modeler!
