Moebius Models 1/6 scale "Lost in Space" Robot B9

By John Plzak
Published: July 8, 2014

Aurora issued a 1/11 scale model of B9 in the 1960s that was reissued by Polar Lights in the ’90s. Now, Moebius Models has produced a 1/6 scale plastic model kit of B9.

The kit is molded in gray and clear plastic with dark gray vinyl for the arms and legs, which can be built retracted or extended. Three photoetched-metal grates are supplied to go behind the lower torso vents. Sadly, the head dome, while clear and free from distortion, had to be molded in two halves. That leaves an obvious seam around its circumference. But, in fairness to Moebius, it is hard to see how it could have been molded otherwise.
