from the Disneyland newsgroup.....
There's a lot of FIVE never-opened MPC Pirates of the Caribbean model
kits available on Ebay. As of 8-12-04, the price is already up to
$535!!! And there's five days to go on the auction, yet! What will the
final price be, anyway? $1000??? More???
Disney should wise up and reissue model kits like these at the time the
second Pirates of the Caribbean movie is released. Does anyone know is
MPC is still around? If not, there must be another model kit company
with the same design capabilities.
I had all the Pirates of the Caribbean and Haunted Mansion models when I
was a wee one. They were great fun to build and paint, and they were one
of my favorite toys ever. I used glow in the dark paint on all the
skeleton bones. I even created my own "ride" - a crawl thru
blanket-over-tabletops tunnel with the models lining the side.
Unfortunately, my models were in storage in a house that burned down.
