My only complaint is that it's a shame they didn't spend £3.50 on the special effects instead of £2.49. I do approve of their use of spaceships which look like they were made out of lego though.
The Italian modelmakers went for the Derek Meddings/ILM 'kitbashing' approach of sticking on bits from various model kits to make things look visually interesting. However, When Meddings'' crew or the modelmakers at ILM did it, the usually cut the parts off the injection moulding sprues first:

I completely agree, god knows why Christopher Plummer tries to take it seriously but I guess he heard everyone involved in Star Wars thought it was rubbish until it was released, and my only complaint is that it's a shame they didn't spend £3.50 on the special effects instead of £2.49.

That's a good point.  It was really interesting seeing Elstree 1976, all the actors thinking it was a load of shit that would be nobody would watch and be forgotten immediately.
Shame they never made any StarCrash action figures (or blow-up dolls).

Ha ha, never noticed that.  I'd better watch it again, woo!

EDIT:
Oh wait!

Sold out and now priced at £196.57 (plus P&P) on Ebay so unfortunately I'm going to have to resort to making one out of play-doh.

The bikini top isn't right - the cups are too far apart. This is because they have done the same thing they do with all these fantasy collectible (wank) figures of making her bust too big (she was only a 36B). Also, they have given her ridiculous modern 'stripper heel' platform boots - in the film she wore medium heeled boots, which magically change to flats in the fight scenes (just like Joanna Cassidy's did in Blade Runner before Ridley reshot her death scene for The Final Cut). It was officially authorised by Munro though apparently, so maybe that's how she wants to be remembered.

Pics pleez!
The market is bigger than I thought, I'm surprised anyone gives a shit.

How do you manage to be more knowledgeable than anyone, about ANY subject?!  Even sexy sci-fi b-movie clothing.
Munro seems happy true.  Hopefully she got given a pile of money for it too.
