A lot has been said about the infamous Aurora Monster Scenes advertisement that appeared in comic books in 1971. The notorious ads were pulled, and so was the product after much public appeal. Perhaps rightly so, given the violent nature of it all..... I mean, I can understand a Frankenstein or Vampirella model,but a "girl victim" model?.... Really:?
As if this controversy wasn't enough, Vampirella sports a pronounced camel-toe both in the ad and on the model itself (Aurora claims it was due to the shrinking plastic).
Evidently, there were a whole lot of burgeoning sadists back in the early seventies, because, before the public outcry got too loud, Aurora added to the product line with such accessories as: The Pain Parlor, The Hanging Cage, Gruesome Goodies, and The Pendulum.
Today, these model kits are extremely valuable, especially considering the original molds were destroyed in 1974 for their beryllium steel. Also valuable is the small comic illustrated by Neal Adams that came with the kits. I must admit, I hadn't seen one of these until recently. Check it out! (click to enlarge)
