On an impulse buy I bought Polar Lights (ex-Aurora) Vampirella. I realize the box said "snap together kit", but I figured I could work around that. BITTER DISAPOINTMENT when I got home! With a lot of filling and sanding the model can be built OK, but the figure doesn't look or is posed anything like the box art. Talk about misrepresentation!! Even though the kit comes with alternate arms and legs, you still can't achieve the illustrated pose. Sculpting new limbs is beyond me, and would be a waste of time for such a mediocre model. For almost $25 I would consider this a rip-off. I'm not prepared to toss $25 in the trash bin though - with putty, sandpaper, and hotknife in hand I'll see what can be done.

It got shelved in favor of armor and ship models which are a lot less annoying!
