If you’re a fantasy art aficionado and have $350,000 burning a hole in your pocket, head on over to eBay seller Mister Sluggworths and buy up these original Ken Kelly oils. They were commissioned by Mego in 1979 and used as card and box art for the Micronauts series 4 and 5 (1979 – 1980) alien figures and vehicles.

Above you see, from top to bottom, Repto, Membros, the Hornetroid, and the Terraphant. Also for sale are Centaurus, Kronos, and Lobros. That’s 7 out of 8 of the original commissions being sold as a lot. Antron is the only one missing.

Micronauts: Terraphant (Mego, 1979)

Micronauts Terraphant

Terraphant Italian 1979

I’ve never seen “The Terrifying Mammoth from the Remote World of Visceros” before. It rules, obviously. The alien script is a brilliant touch. I’m not sure the “hydrocannon” is all that terrifying, but you never know, maybe water is deadly to Viscerians (Viscerosians?).

The box art is by Ken Kelly. Check out his Micronauts gallery at Innerspace Online.
