  ABOUT THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA
   
  Audiences gasped and shuddered to their heart's delight while viewing

the original horror movie, "The Phantom of the Opera." First released in
1925 as a silent film, it starred Lon Chaney, dubbed "The Man of a Thousand
Faces," because of his theatrical bag of tricks he employed to completely
alter his features. In this movie classic, he succeeded through countless
devices in transforming his face to take on the appearance of a skull. To
further enhance the drama, the gruesome face of the Phantom was cloaked
in secrecy; no still photos were allowed to be published until well after the
release of the film. In fact, it is not until the fifth reel that he was seen
unmasked.
     
   The bizarre plot revolves around an insane musician seeking revenge for

his disfigured features by menacing the Paris Opera House, played so eloquently
by Chaney that it fairly frightened the public out of its wits!
     
  The Paris Opera House of 1880 was thrown into a series of turmoils by

strange events attributed by the invasion of evil spirits...actually created by
the mysterious Phantom. His main ambition was to train a beautiful young
opera singer to achieve the honor of Prima Donna; thus he left the subterranean
quarters where he made his home to launch a reign of terror. Maintaining
his horrible secret, he continued his horrendous acts by killing in unique,
violent methods, climaxing his mad rampage by causing a massive chandelier
to crash upon an unsuspecting audience. Exercising a spell over his protege,
he hypnotized the soprano into following him into the catacombs under the
opera house where, to her utter terror, he tore off his mask!
     
  The lover of the captive singer, falling prey to the Phantom in his efforts

to rescue her, was forced to endure the torture chamber before being saved
by an agent of the secret police. The Phantom, in the meantime, made good
his escape amidst the confusion. In a spine-tingling chase, the furious mob
captured the fleeing villain who suffered as violent a death as his victim.

    Phantom of the Opera

    I owned the original Aurora kit when it first came out. I have purchased 4 of the Atlantis kits and have built and super detailed one for my display. It is a perfect reissue of the original kit and should not dissapoint anyone looking to recapture their youth and to add a beautiful kit to their display. Also keep an eye out for a limited issue of this kit molded in metallic green. I was able to get one for my collection. Great idea.

    What fantastic nostalgic trip this model is. Really well molded and great little details. I haven't enjoyed a kit in such a long time as I had this one. You knocked it out of the park on this one Atlantis! I look forward to more releases in this genre!

    I always loved the Aurora monster kits and, along with their Prehistoric Scenes line, I had them all. The “human” kits were some of the best though I favored the Creature, Kong and Godzilla. The Phantom kit was a great subject and trying to outdo myself with grisly realistic paint jobs on his prisoner was the highlight of building this one. The poor guy kind of got forgotten and lost behind the legs and cape. This is a solid re-pop of one of my favorite Aurora kits. Highly recommend picking one or two up.

    Phantom of the Opera Model Kit

    Attention Aurora Fans (and who isn't?) hunt down the original long box Atlantis reissue---Very hard to find now except perhaps at Horror Conventions. Manufactured in the original black colored plastic in every original detail. You could easily interchange original Aurora parts with those from Atlantis. Warning, some of the plastic may be very thick and difficult to remove from the sprues. However, excellent in every way!

    Went together very well for a kit from 1963. There was some flash and I cut off the locator tab for the left arm for a much better fit. Primed with flat gray to give color coats something to stick to. I liked the glow parts.

    Kudos to Atlantis for their line of classic kit reissues - really top notch work. My inner 10 year old is very happy. Thanks. Now get ahold of the license for Bride of Frankenstein!
