On March 25th Executive Replicas posted an interesting teaser. In collaboration with TBLeague comes a machine Maria from Metropolis. Taken from a German website:

Oh wow!! That's definitely something very different, and I am very intrigued!

Fascinating. I really have no idea how they'll do it. I'm skeptical they'll use a seamless body, but really interested to see what it looks like when they announce it.

A seamless robot (both in film and action figure form) is a bit of a curiosity, but they seem to reproducing the look of the thing accurately. Prepare for custom dioramas of C3-PO's wedding (to something other than R2-D2). Smile

If this actually goes up for PO, I’m in. If you’ve never seen Metropolis, it’s worth a look. What they were able to achieve with in-camera tricks, as far as special effects, during the Silent Era is pretty remarkable. C-3PO owes a lot to the design of Maria, as Lucas himself admitted.

Yes!! I love Metropolis and the whole retro-sci fi influence in Star Wars -- both PT and OT eras -- and would be extremely interested in this figure.

I'm curious if it would be seamless or jointed -- I know you mentioned in the Lost in Space thread that sometimes tbleague makes jointed bodies for this company.  While it would seem obvious that a 'robot' would be jointed, I guess I was just thinking that, hmm... wonder if the joints will be built in, or it would be approached more like armour on a seamless body... mimicking the concept of a real person being inside a costume, etc.

So yeah.... more than a little intrigued by this! : )

I loved Metropolis (well the 'butchered' Giorgio Moroder version) and still need time to sit down and see the complete restored version.
