DR. SMITH BUST WITH MINI JUPITER-2 #02
LOST IN SPACE - DR. SMITH RARE RESIN PORTRAIT BUST - Shy,
sinister, sneaky, selfish---all the adjectives that describe
the Jupiter-2's reluctant stowaway, Dr. Zachary Smith.
From 1965 through 1968, Sci-fi fans were dazzled each week by
the ongoing exploits of America's first family in
space---"Lost in Space," that is---the hit TV series that has
enchanted millions for over four decades now. And everyone's
favorite character of the timeless show (with the possible
exception of the Robinson's Robot) was Dr. Smith, brilliantly
portrayed by the late actor, Jonathan Harris.
Here, in tribute to the nefarious no-gooder, is an awesome
resin portrait bust of the show's weekly "Special Guest Star."
The bust was released as a limited-edition model back some
seven years ago by Diceman Creations, and was officially
licensed by Harris himself. It's a 1/6 scale piece, featuring
a blindingly good likeness of the actor, wearing his signature
space suit. Beyond the Doctor, the kit includes a miniature
Jupiter-2 spaceship which doubles as a pedestal base, and a
sculpted nameplate stating, "Special Guest Star Jonathan
Harris." Ed White provided the superior sculpt, with Smith
himself measuring 4" tall x 2 3/4" wide, and the J-2 saucer
being 2 3/4" in diameter. There's also a clear dome for the
ship in case one would choose not to use the Jupiter as a
base, but display it separately.
This rare beauty is complete, unbuilt, and comes packaged in
its original full-color box, waiting to take off to unknown
worlds. So, if you're a fan of the devious Doctor, don't miss
this one or you'll feel "the pain... the pain."
Value: $60. (Un-Built Kit)
