    Hello friends in planetfigure,
    I wish you ALL to have A Very Happy Summer with a lot of Modelling Hours and More Finished Models!!

    I would like to share with you my new figure that is the first release in Fantasy Elite Series in 54mm of the well known Greek company of Michael Kontraros, Michael Kontraros Collectibles (www.mkontraros.com) that I have in my hands and I must admit is very unique and covers a different theme from what I have seen in the market. Even if it is a fantasy theme I like it very much and it is a collectors’ piece that you must have and paint. I am talking about the Vampire Queen. The Vampire Queen is sitting in a Stone Throne that has a lot of engraved and sculpting details (as you can see in the pictures). The pose is very realistic and natural. As it is the first company’s figure in 54mm I am very impressed with the huge amount of the details that Mike manage to put on in this excellent kit. It is a kit that is talking to you: “please paint me… I can not wait…” From what I know Michael has a very good Exhibition in Stresa but I am sure that this kit as the upcoming new releases will take off the sales!! Have Great Sales Michael!
    So what we have:

    Title: Vampire Queen
    Scale: 1/32
    Size: 54mm
    Pieces: 6
    Sculptor: Michael Kontraros
    Box Art: Francesco Farabi
    For Orders and more Information: www.mkontraros.com

    I must say again these words: “The kit comes in a metal box. The metal box of the kit is brilliant and keeps very safe the parts of the kit. The sculpting detail is of a high standard! I tried to find the molding lines or something that I must clean. I found NOTHING AT ALL!!! You can go direct for painting!! The casting is so clean and the detail so clear! The highly quality resin will help the painter a lot as the paint will adhere on the surface very good”.
    The Box Art has been painted by the famous and very talented artist Francesco Farabi. The painting selections are endless! For sure this kit will be very popular among the fantasy fans but also among the others because everyone will want to paint this girl!

    I am attaching photos to have a personal evaluation.
    I hope that you will find this review useful.

    This is such a stunning sculpt, I love everything about it, the pose, the detail and the subject. If it was in a larger scale, I would have definately bought it by now. After your review, I am still thinking if I should or not

    Although I truly appreciate the fantasy side of our hobby, generally, I am not one to buy, less paint these figures. But this one.....WOW! Love the dynamics of the piece.. And the level of panting is outstanding (y)
