MB24052 - Master Box
This kit is part of a series called "Strange Company's Space Adventures" and is part of a new series of different kits (MB24052, MB24054, MB24055). However, this kit is perfect as a stand alone figure model set or you may want to combine some or all from this series to make a space themed diorama.
The adventure begins with people and robots meeting for the first time, in a bar on the ALMAR peripheral space station. They are almost immediately attacked by Government Special Forces on a secret mission aimed against Jacqueline, (one of the visitors of the bar). Having occurred under fire the visitors of the bar become a team just to survive. They manage to escape the Spaceport by stealing the combat attack ship used by the Special Forces. They disappear into the zone known as the Underdeveloped Territories and are now hunted by the most powerful enemy in the whole Universe - the Galactic Security Service.
Description of Character:
Irene Leroi is a representative of Steamplanet, which is a somewhat strange civilisation created by the descendants of the sectarian migrants, who left Earth in search of salvation just prior to an oncoming technological disaster. They mastered one of the planets in the Far Frontier. The Sectarians rejected all sources of energy known at that time, since technology was responsible for their having to leave Earth and accept only one (Steam Power). They chose the style of the Victorian Era of Great Britain as the model for building their new world. Perhaps their choice of this new ideology was influenced and based on Steampunk, which flourished at the turn of the 20th and 21st Centuries, or the fact that it was one of the most prosperous and forward moving times, in any case, they even called their planet symbolically "Steamplanet“.
Despite skepticism and in spite of all logic, the colonists succeeded in creating very advanced technologies and even managed to master space flight, relying solely on the power of steam. Moreover, the Victorian style of clothing, weapons and household items received a fanciful development. Irene is just a rich traveler whose means allow her to travel comfortably on her own private ship. Irene got involved in the battle between the Special Forces and the Strange Company partly out of boredom, and partly in defiance of her omnipotent father, Michel Leroi.
Irene managed to get the Strange Company out of the trap on the space station, and ended up in their company on a captured battle shuttle, away from both her own ship and from her crew, which consists of a personal team of body guards who are notorious thugs. Led by their commander and Captain of her ship, a strict demanding and uncompromising leader named Patrick Duval. Patrick received orders from Michel Leroi to rescue his daughter at all costs and return her to Steamplanet. As she is the sole heir to this wealth and power, he will stop at nothing to have her safely back on Steamplanet where he believes his power and influence will protect her. This has added Irene and Michel Leroi along with Irene’s crew to the list of enemies of the Galactic Security Service.
