Following on from the item about Aurora kits earlier, the Polar Lights brand has recently been resurrected and they have re-issued the Aurora glow-in-the-dark witch kit.
Off-topic, but I see that they are also re-issuing the Robby the Robot kit from Forbidden Planet (as well as an all-new kit of the Space Crusier from the film, with Aurora-style box). And if that doesn't grab you, they also plan to remake the 1960s TV Batmobile Aurora kit!
Revell are re-issuing 4 of the Aurora Universal Monsters kits: Dracula, Frankenstein's Monster, The Mummy and The Wolfman. However, the Aurora box artwork is not being used this time, which diminishes their value greatly in my view. Prices are high and you can probably find the same kits on eBay, for example those released under the Luminators range in the early 90s, for much less.
Finally, Moebius Models have a fantastic all-new (Boris Karloff) Mummy kit in Aurora-style box and have re-issued the Aurora Gigantic Frankenstein, also available in a glow version.
