A Soviet film? "Planet of Storms" (1962)?

I don't recognize their suits or the hover/grav vehicle.

Dan, it is Planeta Bura (Planet of Storms) The entire movie is available with a basic search for Planet of Storms. The suits and flying space car are shown in the movie.

I have a question for you. Did you ever make a mould for your Woola sculpture from John Carter of Mars? I thought your sculpture caught the character of the beast perfectly and hoped you would put it into production.

if you cannot find it under "Planet of Storms"

you can also find it in 'recut' form as

"Voyage to the Prehistoric Planet"
starring Basil Rathbone (who was not in the original) or

"Voyage to the Planet of Prehistoric Women"
starring Mamie Van Doren (also not in the original)

recognize the robot?

Thanks guys!

Brad, I've been opening boxes we brought back to the house and I have yet to find out if Woola ever survived the flooding we got from Hurricane Harvey.

The detail on this robot is mind blowing. There is a scene which shows the individual "toes"/claws adjusting for better traction. I cried when he was lost!

Like looks like it was inspired by the Chester E. Macduffee diving suit:

I think it was originally a Russian film. Just saw it a few weeks ago.
