    Dave Cockrum - Metaluna Mutant Box Art Illustration Original Art (Aurora, 1974). An aborted line of model kits based on famous science fiction films was apparently in the works at the popular Aurora company in the mid-'70s, and plans progressed to the point where artwork and even prototypes were commissioned. Offered here is a terrific "action" pose illustration for the Metaluna Mutant from the glossy 1955 production "This Island Earth," possibly to be used as the box art for the finished packaging. A dramatic pencil illustration shows the Mutant reaching out to grab you, as well as details of the power cylinder gadget behind the creature. A terrific piece for any fan of this classic film, or of the great Dave Cockrum! The artwork measures 11" x 13.75" and is in Very Good condition, with some creasing in the top right corner and light overall wear.
