GIANT CYCLOPS GRAVE KIT (SCARES)
LOST IN SPACE CYCLOPS - RAREST RESIN FROM THE GRAVE MODEL -
From 1965 through 1968, Sci-fi fans were dazzled each week by
the ongoing exploits of the Robinsons.
Perpetually "Lost in Space," the hit TV series enchanted
millions for over four decades now. Surely, everyone's
favorite monster from the timeless show is the one-eyed giant
that tosses boulders at the Space Family Robinson on their
jaunt across alien terrain. Indeed, the show's fluffy-faced
Cyclops has become synonymous with the show itself, being
pictured on more official product than any other LIS creature.
Yet, for over forty years now, figures of the toothy brute
have been few and far between.
Here's the single-orbed gargantuan from a far away world,
vividly rendered as an extremely rare garage kit by Resin From
Originally a privately commissioned piece, the Lost In Space
Cyclops was sculpted by John Nemec, who does a fantastic job
on the TV terror, with a threatening pose that's completely

only saw a highly limited production (even for Resin From The
Grave), leaving many collectors unable to obtain the kit. (No
doubt, it's one of the Grave's rarest items, and almost never
The Cyclops featured here is one of the very first castings
pulled from the original molds, and was purchased directly
from RFTG the day of its premiere at an early Chiller Theatre
show back in 1992. The kit includes a 14 1/2" tall monster,
and a terrific craggy rock display base (complete with
sculpted nameplate), which measures 6" tall x 12" wide x 9
1/2" deep. Fully assembled, the model stands over 16" tall,
and is as awesome as the show that inspired it. All parts are
extremely well cast in tan resin, especially for an early
effort From The Grave.
This obscure alien is complete, unbuilt, and comes packaged in
its original box, waiting to invade your Space.
