Hobby Master have announced the third in their "Legend" series: Captain Eugene Cernan, "The Last Man on the Moon".

Be interesting to see how this compares to the Dragon figures.

Is this another "phantom" model from Hobby Master (one that is produced but never listed on their website, eg.HM-HH1012 UH-1 Helicopter HA(L)-3 Seawolves, US Navy Task Force, 1967)?

Maybe not (replying to my own post!). Hobby Master has opened a page for "Action Figure". The first figure is Col. C. E. Bud Anderson. Gene Cernan is not (yet) listed but that's a start.

Great details but the Omega Speedmaster is worn upside down.

But a lack of details on the PLSS, that was bulkier than the ones used on the first missions (side pockets missing, etc.).

I think they did a great job with Cernan's likeness on this.

Agreed. Hobby Master is also pretty diligent with details on their aircraft models; hopefully they address the above mentioned issues before production.

You can find some detailed pictures here. Click to zoom. The PLSS looks awfully small...

I do not understand this by the neck ring, the folded area.

The boots and the helmet both look oversized to me. The proportions just seem off. However the likeness is remarkable.

KG Hobby gas it on sale for $80 with $34 shipping. Is this too good to be true? Claims to be $114 off.

I knew something didn't look right. The first page declares it is $114 off, but the next page states they simply rebill it when shipped. Sort of shady.
