This is a hand sculpted and hand painted figure by artist
Brian Davis of Ocala Flordia. The sculpture is made of
polymer clay. The figure stands 20.0" high.
Now, this is how I would built/paint the Giant Cyclops!
In keeping with the original costume design from the
classic TV series, I always felt the Aurora/Polar Light
kits were missing something on this monster. Having
fur around the Cyclops face adds much to the realism of
menacing creature. I also felt the body was someone
boring, seeing the original costume was made of Palm tree
bark. Brian captures the Giant Cyclops at it's very best,
and one of the best sculptures/diorama's ever made.
The Giant Cyclops was introduced in the first season on
Lost in Space in epiosode #4 "There were Giants in the Earth"
which originally aired on the CBS TV Network on 10/6/65.
I never personally understood the title on this episode either?
Giants in the Earth? Wouldn't it sound better if it was called,
Giant's on Earth? How could a Giant Cyclops be INSIDE the
Earth? If the Robinson's were on an alien world, this would not
have been Earth?
