Let's start off the week with a sixth scale figure from a classic sci-fi television show - Penny Robinson from the third season of Lost in Space! This could have been killer, but they made some odd choices, and missed the mark with the final release. You can find my review here:

Thank you for the review, Michael. Now here's a figure only a super-fan could go for, and I imagine even that with misgivings. Perhaps my take would be different if I were a fan of this show, but right now the unarticulated space chimp looks to me like the best part of this set. Seems like so many figures nowadays suffer from actual conscious choices (this, Furiosa, Jack Burton, etc.) more than production quality.

I liked the show as a kid, but the head sculpt is baffling. There isn’t one thing recognizable of Angela Cartwright in it. Seems any time Executive Replicas has a bigger hand in these things, it’s not going to turn out for the better.

Yep, I think if they'd gone with a short bob for the hair and sculpted it, they could have gotten a look that would have been recognizable in this outfit. Seems like an odd move on their part.

Thank you for the review, Michael.

I was just a little kid when Lost In Space originally aired and it was not something that held my attention. Besides, Will was a dweeb... Laughing

Still, there are hardcore fans out there and I'm sure this was aimed at them.
