Master Box Sept – Oct 2018 Releases

Our company continues to work on a completely new direction for us. This is the development of new series of kits in 1/24 scale dedicated to the subject of space fiction and connected by a single story. The choice of this direction is due to the fact that space science fiction is very popular both in cinema and in computer games. At the same time, we did not become attached to the characters of specific serials, movies or games, and tried to make our figures rather universal to interest fans, for example, of “Star Wars”, or fans of such TV serials as “Expanse”, “Star Trek”, and fans of various computer games of this subject. This position is occupied by us absolutely consciously, as it removes the restrictions associated with the fact that the interest in the product does not go beyond the interest in a particular movie or in a particular video game and, therefore, limits strictly the number of those who can be interested in this product.

The series will consist of separate groups of kits telling about separate episodes of Strange Company’s adventures – the characters that we invented and that act within the framework of the story invented by us. In fact, each group of kits is a kind of mini-comics, just made in plastic. Each character, each figure has own name and own biography that is reflected on the box. This approach makes each figure a person, as if animating it and, accordingly, making it more attractive by giving more scope for modeller’s imagination.

The general name of the series is “At the Edge of the Universe. Strange Company’s adventures”.

The first release consists of four kits showing the first episode of their adventures – a random meeting that takes place in the bar of the peripheral space station, which serves as the place of the shelter and of refueling of space transporters officially, and as the intersection of grifters and violators of the Galactic Law of all stripes unofficially.

Continuation of the plot is the intervention of fighters of the government special forces. We introduced two fighters into the story line – kit 24054 “Tiberious “Ty” Constellation Hackington III What to do next ?!” and kit 24055 “Laurie “Lightning Bolt” Barnes”. After pursuing the fugitives, they did not notice in the heat of the fight how they turned out inside the combat boat of the government Special Forces carrying the “Strange Company” away from the pursuers. The balance of forces on this ship was clearly in favor of those for whom our brave commandos were chasing, and before Ti and TTT faced a difficult question – how to proceed: to engage in battle and perish, or to become part of a cohesive team, known later as “Strange Company”.

Our new releases of September-October 2018 are as follows:

1/24 24054 “At the Edge of the Universe – Tiberious “Ty” Constellation Hackington III.
Strange Company’s adventures. Episode I. The first meeting. Tiberious “Ty” Constellation Hackington III” – this is the fifth kit in the new series ” At the Edge of the Universe. Strange Company’s adventures” and is part of the story told with the help of our figures about how different characters, accidentally met in the bar of the peripheral space station, became a cohesive team, later known as” Strange Company “.

The kit includes a figure of a galactic special forces fighter.

Tiberious “Ty” Constellation Hackington III

Ty is young and full of ambition. He was born on one of the most highly developed planets of the Galactic Union, with excellent natural and technological education opportunities. Growing up in a rich and comfortable megalopolis, he was not particularly suited for the harsh service life he chose. His desire to prove himself assisted him to overcome the prejudice of both bosses and fellow soldiers and become an exemplary fighter in the Galactic Union Special Forces. He is highly developed and well educated. He dreams of studying at the Academy, but it has been difficult for him to get into the Academy because of caste prejudices and the lack of financial support from his relatives. He is very organized and clearly and accurately executes orders to the letter. He is not very motivated and proactive and he is not inclined to improvise, which on the one hand, makes him a very reliable member of the team, but on the other it closes his prospect of growth to the level of sergeant. Despite a very decent education, he must rely solely on himself and a state scholarship if he wants to attend the Academy to gain the coveted status of an officer. He doesn’t feel that his abilities will get him accepted, so he must decide where his future will go.

During the battle in the bar on the space station Almar, Lightning Bolt and Ty managed to pursue the renegades and get aboard the stolen shuttle/ship. They are now faced with a difficult decision. Join the “Strange Company” and take their chances, or remain loyal to the Galactic Union (and continue to be held back in their careers with the Galactic Union Special Forces)? Currently they are alone and outnumbered on a ship heading into deep space (that will be soon hunted by every resource the Galactic Union can muster). They have decided to join the “Strange Company”, a decision that will completely change their lives and destiny. They are now parted of the most wanted/hunted group in all of space.

The choice of 1/24 scale exactly for this series of the kits is caused by that it the most preferable scale for the figures of such kind that allows reaching more qualitative level of performing details that is highly appreciated by the modellers. We would emphasize that besides high artistic level, the figures are very simple in the assembly and they will give a lot of pleasure to modellers during the work with it.

Also we would emphasize that the figure will allow the modeller using it for creating both of independent mini-diorama and of more large-scale scene with the use of other figures of Master Box company of the same series, for example, of the figures from 24031, 24033, 24034, 24035 and 24055 kits.

1/24 24055 “At the Edge of the Universe – Laurie “Lightning Bolt” Barnes.
Strange Company’s adventures. Episode I. The first meeting. Laurie “Lightning Bolt” Barnes – this is the sixth kit in the new series ” At the Edge of the Universe. Strange Company’s adventures” and is part of the story told with the help of our figures about how different characters, accidentally met in the bar of the peripheral space station, became a cohesive team, later known as” Strange Company “.

The kit includes a figure of a galactic special forces fighter.

Laurie “Lightning Bolt” Barnes

Laurie is a Common soldier of the Government “Special Forces” detachment. She is beautiful, smart and extraordinary, she is also strong and tough, but flexible in nature at the same time. This has allowed her to quickly adapt to changes in every situation that she has been involved with. She came from a poor family from an outer peripheral planet. She grew up in very difficult conditions where survival was the best she could hope for. She volunteered for military service in the hopes to better her living conditions. She is an excellent, experienced and enterprising fighter. She is so good at what she does, it constantly incurs the discontent of her immediate superiors, who are intimidated by her abilities. Being a female, she constantly gets attitude from her male co-workers because she is so focused on being the best she can be. Therefore, she is forced to reconcile herself and just drudge on to prove she is something worthwhile. She has proven herself an asset over and over again, but despite her high performance she has not been advanced to the sergeant as of yet. Her abilities warrant advancement and she would make an excellent Officer, but entrance to the Officer level is closed for her due to her lack of education and social status.
