Hey, Anime and Final Fantasy fans, this is a plastic model of the Space Marine ship from the Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within groundbreaking CGI movie. Model is approximately between 1/72 and HO (1/87) scale.
I don't know what has happened to the rest of these toys, but do not see others Naturally then, this item is "rare" since probably "only" 71.6 million were made that month! ....anyway,
Ship has variable engine pod positions, with provision for landing configuration, opening compartments, and poseable ladders for cockpit access (currently taped to bottom of display stand). T are four 'to scale' figures (a pilot, one is Aki, other is Dr. Sid, one is a Deep Eye, ...but I'm sure you already know all this).
Because the wings are made from soft plastic, t happens to be some angular asymmetry to them on this model; I am guessing that it was part of the manufacturing or packaging process. It will be up to you to decide to try to use a little dry heat or steam to balance them; I've left this alone.
DISCLAIMER : Since this and other items I am listing are sold as part of downsizing, I am sorry but I cannot accept returns or provide refunds, exchanges, and offer no guarantees or warranties.

This item is sold as is .

Please feel free to ask me any questions during the period of listing, and I will answer them as best I can.

Many eBayers to whom I have sent items will verify that it cost me more or just about what they paid in shipping to get their new acquisitions safely and promptly out to them. Please consider that with the rising price of gas, my shipping charges need to cover at least actual postal charges and fuel, then material - if possible, and lastly- time.

Please remember that this and other items are things that are actually my personal collectibles, so I take great care in packing in order to transfer ownership to you.
I also highly recommend the optional insurance.
