If truth is stranger than fiction, there is no stranger story than...

It's a tale of the times; an account of what happens when a hobby company dares to dabble in subject matter too caustic to contain...then peddles it to kids!

If you think you know all about the debacle called "Monster Scenes," think again. Yes, this is the electrifying collection of model kits that brought shame upon the long-proud Aurora Plastics Company and disgrace upon it's wholesome parent corporation, Nabisco...but the complete story has never been revealed -- until now. 

Written by Dennis L. Prince, current purveyor of Monster Scenes, and Andrew P. Yanchus, original Aurora Project Manager who brought forth the concept in 1971. It's the authoritative volume that presents the facts, debunks the myths, and sets the record straight, once and for all.

In this 256-page publication, you'll come face to face with the people who conjured up this innovative series and the meddling team members who confused its intent and unleashed a line of kits that burst forth on a startling campaign of torture, sadism, and sex -- for ages 8 and up!


This trade-sized paperbound book is printed in full color on high-quality glossy paper. It includes over 700 images and illustrations: concept drawings, kit prototypes, blueprints, artwork, and so much more. It also includes a fully illustrated reference section that details each kit in the original Monster Scenes series: box art, variations, part layouts, instruction sheets, and remarkable built-up examples from Tory Mucaro, professional builder/painter and son of Monster Scenes packaging designer, Sal Mucaro. From start to finish, it's a true feast for the eyes. 

If you're ready to learn the real truth about this remarkable series then you're ready for Aurora Monster Scenes - The Most Controversial Toys of a Generation.
