What is it and how did it get here?
Action figures, smaction figures – we’ve seen ‘em all. At least we thought we had until *cue iconic 2001: A Space Odyssey intro music* the Space Monolith Action Figure
appeared from nowhere here at Firebox HQ.
With no discernable features, zero points of articulation
and a distinct lack of action, this solid block of semi-synthetic, organic, amorphous, solid materials (aka plastic) is modelled on the mysterious Tycho Magnetic Anomalies from Stanley Kubrick’s incomprehensible sci-fi classic.
As the featureless slab of who-knows-what that unites all four sections of the film, the Space Monolith
is perfect for screen-gazers keen to ponder the meaning of life. It won’t teleport, self-replicate or emit loud radio signals but at least it will mark you out as an aficionado of profound film making. Confused? You should be, you daft monkey!
