Some of those girls have been linked here before, but not with their kitties showing.  Cool

English version of Aurora Models web site in Japan:
http://aurora-model.jp/e-index.html

Aurora Model ebay store:
http://stores.ebay.com/aurora-model?_trksid=p4340.l2563

Note:  I've ordered from their ebay store, because the shipping made it work out cheaper than going thru the web site.  Package did come from Aurora in Japan (not a knock-off from somewhere else).  Wink

Cheers,
Dallas

... is the above mentioned company the same company (or sucessor) of that company called Aurora which offered these monster model kits a long time ago ... ?

Gerald -- No.  "Aurora" was a Greek goddess and that name has been used for cities, businesses, etc., etc. for many years.  I think that the Aurora outfit that made those monster toys you linked may have been the same one that marked some of the old Mini-Trix model railroad items.  -- Dallas

... don't want to nitpick, but actually she was roman goddes (of dawn) ...  Grin ... in greek mythology she was named Eos ...

... I think that the Aurora outfit that made those monster toys you linked may have been the same one that marked some of the old Mini-Trix model railroad items ...
...I had completly forgotten this area of modelling and suddenly - reading Aurora - it came to my mind again ... just thought there could be a connection: first offering airplanes, then monster kits, kits of people of different nationality ... and today a large variety of "common" figures ...
The Aurora Plastics Copr. offering the monster model kits was of american origin (Google told me just): http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aurora_Plastics_Corporation

Cheers
