GREAT MOVIE! I took a Art History course on German Expressionism and the proffesor showed Metropolis projected huge upon the wall. There is so much cool stuff in it watching it on TV just pales in comparison. Fantastic design sense I also think several of the themes are still very relevant.

Metropolis- It's like a German Expressionist painting come to life ! And Maria is an amazing design.
Funny that the film was loved by Nazi's as the message is so socialist.

More nice work, Hotmitts! I take it the Kaiser helmet was part of the original figure design and you built the face of the figure up to go with it. I like the skull look of the face and also his ambivalent expression, which somehow says more than a more conventional bad guy look.

Metropolis is one of the few greats of cinema sci fi and oft upon these pages have I lamented the lack of a decent action figure or model kit although one of each has been attempted.

Thanks, bro !

Hope you had a great time at Glastonbury!

I've been enjoying your photostrips here.

Yes you're right, I had a Kaiser helmet lying around which didn't quite fit on any figure, so I whittled an existing head, stuck the helmet on and built the face to go with it. Later I spotted the coat on ebay, it's Napoleonic.

I saw one action figure of Maria but it was disappointing.
