Weta Workshop Moose Model Kit

Weta Workshop will be releasing a resin model kit of the Moose mech from the movie Chappie. I like the militaristic, "real robot" design and it was awesome to see it finally come to life and wreak havoc in the movie's finale.

Here is a look at the Kit: https://youtu.be/o9AoaPXPQiA

The kit is rather large and an accurate scale replica of the movie version molded in resin in limited numbers so probably won't be cheap :'( . Apparently, the Moose will be the first in a series of kits from Weta. Hopefully, they will also make one of the Prawn Exosuit from District 9, another Blomkamp movie whose special effects Weta Workshop created.

There will be six kits in the first wave in various scales. I wonder what else they will produce. I'd say a kit of Chappie himself is an obvious candidate. Maybe the Spider Tank from Ghost in the Shell?

I think the Elysium robots are good candidates, too.

The Exosuit already was released as a built statue, btw. It would be pretty easy to sell it as a kit.
