I hope Blitzway bring out this great 1:4 scale EMU astronaut, oh how nice... as seen New York Comic-Con by Action Figure Direct:

If they do, I hope it will be a 1/6 model to fit with other models.

Release: 2nd quarter 2018. It's written on the right lower corner of the first picture above.

I'm not sure I even want to know how much this will be, as the high-end 1:6 stuff is often very pricey. It's a moot point for me as I'm sure I don't have the money (and for sure not the room) to devote to one of these.

The good thing is that people could stage their own 'space' photos (or film) with this and if done correctly, it'd look like the real thing with the visor pulled down like that.

I agree 1:4 is a bad idea (unless they come up with a 1:6 model as well).

But interesting to note that there are shuttle-era models coming out as we approach the Apollo 11 50th anniversary.

I see this more as being current spaceflight, as the EMU is still in use at the space station.

I hope this figure by Blitzway is affordable. Also curious to see if it is just the figure or comes with the display base shown here.

As if I have the space for anything this size...

Define affordable.

When I see that 1:6, 12-inch tall action figures can go as high as $450, affordable is not the first word that comes to mind regarding the Astronaut model...

Wow, stunning piece. Expensive, perhaps but the amount of work and attention to detail that seems to have gone into this, it may just be worth it. Now, do I have room?

Per the website, now targeted for third quarter... but seems very much worth the wait.
