Good on you for taking this task on, it's a real loss to not have Anton carrying on but I know you'll make it yours in no time. One thing I was wondering is if you will be able to give us the heads up on when to expect the emails from Martin?

Looking forward to your first set of clues (even though I'm rubbish at guessing them).

great news on the up and coming release and hopefully you'll receive the same information before the drop of the next one, as I wrote to Anton, I need something to give me a sleepless night over once a month!

Some of the hints I gave may change because of a potential character line up shift. The date should be the same. If he doesn't have to switch characters going up for pre-order, the figures he has to show in the next email are very nice.

DD always stepping up where others fear to tread in the character department has always been their main selling point for me.  Wasp Woman, Monster on Campus, Kolchak, Frankenstein's Daughter, Rains Phantom, Psycho, Roderick Usher....some good stuff that no one else has really bothered much with.

I have already finished and turned in Cat and The Canary and Legend of The Werewolf. Last year in fact, just after turning in Wasp Woman. So even though I won't be slinging paint for Martin anymore...I still have a couple I've done for him that are yet to be released. I will watch this thread with interest, Sir Spooky. Glad someone else can take care of doing it. Unfortunately I have too many real life irons in the fire to be anything more than a spectator and consumer now.  It may result in some downtime in the evenings to visits the forums more often though. For that, I am glad and relieved. All work and No Play Makes Jack a Dull Boy, Mrs. Torrence,lol. Later peeps.

Can't wait to see next month's hints Sir Spooky. Live Long and Prosper, fellas. Phibes out.

They're awesome! Quatermass X-Periment looks marvelous! The green on the arm really pops! The Brain That Wouldn't die is a gory masterpiece!!! Kudos to Martin as he pretty much single handedly took these on!!!   That's a lot of work, Folks!!! He works hard to bring the best monster collectibles out there for films like these (the ones we like and everyone else is unaware of).

Not sure why you can't see them Mordy. They pop up with links in the email newsletter!

I am down for sure for a Brian That Wouldn't Die! Its rockin!!! They both are, but Brain is a gooey oozy bloody monster fest of B movie goodness! Me Likey!

I don't get the newsletter, Anton. Thanks for the link. The Brain that Wouldn't Die is fantastic! The accessory is probably the coolest DD has done. I think the Quatermass is exceptional,  but i don't like the film at all.  Great job all the way around.
Title: Re: THE 2017 DD CAFE MENU.
Post by: Anton Phibes on March 06, 2017, 11:48:09 AM
yes the accessory is especially morbid, and considering it's technically another "figure" in the film, its a good deal,lol! 2 for the price of one more or less! If anyone hasn't seen the film, its dripping with subdued ooziness,lol. I recommend a viewing. Phibes out. Check back in later this evening.

Sir Spooky, I cannot wait to hear your hints for next month! Should be fun! I didn't know what next month's reveals were going to be yet, so guessing will be a blast!

Martin and DD have delivered again, in a big way!  The Closet Monster is marvelously sculpted by Ron Gearing, and Martin did an awesome job on the paint.  And the loose head accessory is beyond cool!  Mutated Victor Carroon has been on my top 10 DD wish list from the beginning, so to actually get him in a two pack with the good Professor Quatermass, with both sculpted by Steve Thompson is just tremendous.

Yes, I am hoping that that Jan can be displayed so you can see her in the package. Looks like it it is a tight fit.

Also, I would really like to start seeing some 1/6 figures from DD

Yes, I really like the megos and I also appreciate the card art. They really are nice pieces. However, there is something about a well done 1/6 figure. The balance has tipped greatly towards megos. I am glad that this was not how it was from the beginning. Look at all the magnificent 1/6 figures we would have lost out on. You know what would have made a cool 1/6 figure? The Yeti that DD made in mego form. I really like that mego figure and would imagine the 1/6 figure would be amazing.

Just wanted to thank member Anton Phibes. My DD Nicholas Pit and Pend figure came in with what looked like a black magic marker mark on it. Richard fixed the figure and made it flawless. He is not only a great painter, but does some of the best retouches on figures and things like photos. Thanks again my friend. Before and after.

That was probably the work of US Customs inspectors. They probably scratched it taking it out of the wrapper to examine it and then just used a marker to hide their blunder. Glad I could help out. Customs makes life hard for DD. I remember when they lost half of the painted Frankenstein's Daughter heads and delayed her release. It was annoying. But Martin prevailed.

Every now and then I feel the need to come from out my lab and clear something up. If there are any quality concerns with any DD products could you please relay them directly to myself. I find it disconcerting that people are having a few hiccups and discussing with others without letting me know. If I do not know what's wrong I cannot make sure it does not happen again next time. Apparently a few of you had problems with Prem's hands. Two I know about, but if there are more please let me know so I can rectify it, instead of hearing from a third party. I think my past history shows I do whatever I can to put things right.  thanks again for all your support and I will continue to do my best.

Yes, I know that my opinion is just one opinion among an ocean of opinions. However, if I had my choice. I would like to see 1, quality 1/6 figure produced each month. Amazing figures like Barlow, Lee Dracula and Arthur Grimsdyke. These are, imo, some of the best 1/6 ever made. I feel we have gotten so far away from these beautiful creations, they are like distant memories. Don't get me wrong, I love the megos. However, the 1/6 figures just have a certain presence about them. Also, the boxes stand up on their own and don't take much space or need to be hung on a wall. Just my thoughts.

Figures would never be made in 1/6. Maybe Megos are more profitable and easier to sell?

Don't forget Clive. Its a masterpiece.  Granted, I imagine some figures are unworthy of 1/6 because the may not do as well. Wasp Woman, Monster on Campus...perhaps even Fly. But they would be magnificent to behold even if they didn't sell,lol. Selling matters though. The Waldemar 1/6 is so creepy Sideshow era good that I forget all about the mego now. Still love them both though,lol.

Don't forget Clive. Its a masterpiece.  Granted, I imagine some figures are unworthy of 1/6 because the may not do as well. Wasp Woman, Monster on Campus...perhaps even Fly. But they would be magnificent to behold even if they didn't sell,lol. Selling matters though. The Waldemar 1/6 is so creepy Sideshow era good that I forget all about the mego now. Still love them both though,lol.
Clive is special and most are too,
But 1/6 Christopher Lee (Dracula) would be
My favorite.
  It's always exciting to see each month what menu specials arrive. Hoping to see more foot long subs🌭

I think the Fly would make a great 1/6 figure.

Moebius Models thinks so too. It will be one of their few ventures into 1/6 licensed figures as well as models according to the rumor mill. Keep your fly arm crossed,lol.

Lots of goodies from the 70's could be made magnificently by DD (preferably in 1/6 scale). I would love to see a definitive Regan, Tomb of the Blind Dead Knight, Lord Summerisle (Wicker Man), Tall Man, Blood Drenched Carrie, Damien, Kinski Nosferatu, Pluto (Hills Have Eyes)...the possibilities are endless!

He mentioned a foreign zombie set was on the blueprint wall awhile back if I recall. One that included this films and some others. I doubt he's forgot. There's always things percolating over there in Horror Land. I still have no idea how he does what he does and keeps them rolling out. He must never sleep.  8) Looking forward t the e-mail to see Ole Blockhead all painted up.

Man, a 12" Kinski Nosferatu would be effing sweet. If t looked as good as the 12" Barlow, I would buy it in a second

A blood drenched Carrie in 12" or 8" would be cool too-- Nice suggestions Joseph!

If I was a fan of the Omega Man film, I would be all over the 2 pack. Magnificent likenesses, film accurate attire, great card art, accessories....it's marvelous.

Evil of Frankenstein's incorporation of Cushing into the card (as well as the monster) is a nice touch....and it's Steve Thompson on Hammer so it's going in my line up.

Yum Yum eat 'em up. :laugh:

Nothing quite for me this time around but great figures and artwork as ever! I was quite tempted by the Omega man 2 pack but as I'm not hugely aware of the film (have seen it but not something that quite stuck with me), I thought I should pass and let a true fan pick this set up. I do love the look of those figures though and as can happen quite often may slightly regret my decision but space is starting to become an issue for me so it's time to be a little more picky.

I'm there will be some very happy people here with this months treats and looking forward to seeing what's on offer for next month already  :P

I haven't seen Evil of Frankenstein in some time (maybe a decade and a half), did he have a blue denim outfit with bright red laces in the movie? I was planning on buying this, but I have major reservations. It's probably sold out already anyway.

Nope, no blue denim or red laces in the film.  An interesting choice of clothing, for sure.  But because it's a Steve Thompson sculpt, and the packaging looks great, I'm all in!

Easy to fix. $2.98 at Wally World.  ;)  If it bugs ya.  If it doesn't then you're aces. I may tinker with mine when I get it. I usually futz with my figures. Even if it is just the addition of socks, or placiing a tray inside for the figure to rest in. Always have....probably always will.

As far as "tinkering" goes, if I drop 85 bucks on an action figure I expect all the "tinkering" to already be done. But, maybe that's just me. I don't customize action figures.

Just dropping a suggestion HH. ;) If the colors used don't do it for ya.... then there's always a work around. But if ya don't do work arounds...then I get ya. :angel:

I've tweaked lots of figures I have bought over the years. The Langdon Zombie being the latest. He got a new outfit put on him. I guess I do it because I just get a mental vision of the way I want something to look..... and make it happen if it doesn't arrive the way I envisioned it. Usually just with small run custom items like these. Not very often with something Sideshow did or someone like that.

The Prem Mummy looks better in person. As for this Frankenstein, I did order it and I am a firm supporter of DD, but I do agree with Horror Hunter. I think it might be because I had pictured in my head a mego version of DD's original 1/6 Evil of Frankenstein figure, which I own. I found this stock photo on line. I think that figure is magnificent and spent 2 years trying to track it down. It is highly accurate to the film.

Also, I love customized figures and actually mostly collect customs. However, I also agree that given these are finished pieces and already considered customs somewhat, no tinkering should need to be done.

I see your point, Anton, and I respect your POV. I just like to keep my collectibles pure. I'll trim excess strings, throw away tape and bubble wrap, and other minor things like that, but I choose not to monkey with paint jobs, clothing, and packaging. I did draw that overlay once for the first Naschy Werewolf but that can be removed anytime and it didn't alter the original packaging (mainly just to cover that original card art I didn't care for). I like to make custom toys sometimes but I just don't like to alter "official" pieces. Just my collecting choices and nothing against you fellows who do good work on your own figures.  ;)

If you google images for Evil of Frankenstein you will see that his costume comes up in various colours, blue, brown, grey, off green etc. The material is a small gauge linen, not denim, but those of you who purchased will realise that upon arrival. Look closely, you will see the pattern in the outfit. The string is brown, not red. In fact every material is the same as the 12 inch version so maybe it's just the lighting or the scale that makes it look different. But as I say, let me know when it arrives if you have any issues.

Yes, incandescent lighting can greatly change colors on items it pictures. It throws a yellow hue on everything and changes all colors. Whenever I take pics in indoor light, I always have to change the color. I look forward to seeing this figure in person.

Thanks for the clarification, Martin. There is also a lot of red in his face based on your photos, which I found a bit odd. I assumed you were purposely going for an alternative look to differentiate from the 1/6 figure. Glad to hear it is just the lighting of the photos.

Closet Monster and Jan in the pan arrived today. I think this may be one of DD's best....if not, its certainly a favorite because I love the goofy movie. I won't comment on the Closet monster's head paints (since I did them that would be braggadocious and self serving), but rather all the rest.

The card art is superb. Everything Gearing does is right up my alley. Color choices are great. Sculpts are phenomenal. Jan's head paints are out of this world. Especially since she is essentially an accessory....yet also the main feature of the film, and not to mention the central character for which the film is titled.

Clothing: the clothing is almost exactly like the film, and is most impressive. I kid you not. Here are some pics:

The blood splatter pattern is well done and nicely placed, the undershirt is sleeve less and patterned linen, and the shoes are great. No socks...but guess what?? in this film the monster doesn't wear any! Yay!

When the pre-order went up, I thought I would switch the shoes out when mine arrived,  since the ones pictured in the pre-order photos were white. When mine arrived: I had brown shoes just like he had on in the flick! Nice!!! Pleased as punch to have this one in my collection. Technically this figure is my swan song, (even though Cat and Legend of the Werewolf are forthcoming) and a team up with Martin. With Martin  carrying most of the duties. Love the figure and glad to ahve it in my line up. Hope everyone who got one loves theirs as much as I do mine. Live Long and Prosper. :angel:

Yes, the pan is bagged and laying under the tray with Jan's head under the monster's body. That's another good use for those body trays. Keeps everything from falling over. unfortunately the design I bought is no longer made....and I only have a dozen or so left.

I am loving this addition to the line up. I didn't have anything collectible from of this film, so this is a nice ackowledgment of it.

I for one am very great full of this offering. I think the sculpts are just fantastic. Too bad Heston doesn't have his gun belt though.

Sadly....its gone dreadfully quiet.

Looks like that did it Anton! All gone and also from MIM but I was also surprised to see how long it took (not that 4 days is really that long). These figures look great but in a similar way I'm not a huge fan of the film but still almost went for them as they looked so good.

Yes, it was a whole different situation back then. I think I like some of those old aspects better than I do now. It used to be that once in a while, there might be a DD figure up on ebay. Now, ebay is overloaded continuously with them. Around 90% of them just linger due to ridiculous prices or the market being flooded with them. I guess we have those couple/few sellers to thank who had the cash to throw down $500 - $1000 plus on the mego Draculas. Even since then, the entire DD market skewed off into an unrecognizable and for many, unreachable collectible realm.

So I thought I was pretty much done with collecting from the DD back catalog but I've just received my Jack Torrance and The Monster From Hell figures and with the Dr. Van Helsing  and The Thing figures I picked up recently that really is more or less it for me to date. All four of these figures were released before I started collecting DD about a year ago and I've always liked them but waited until they appeared at the right price.
I've only paid way over the odds for one of my figures early on and realised that most of these figures turn up at a more reasonable price with a little patience. The only one figure I'd still love to add to my collection is the Curse of Frankenstein but after missing out on the loose one that was up for sale a while back I never see these for sale except for the one on ebay at $999 (don't think that one will go any time soon!).

I've gained quite a bit of love for these figures as I picked them up and find it hard at times not to get everything that gets released each month but I'm trying to stick with only getting ones from films I've seen and enjoy (for the most part). That Omega Man double pack was a hard one to walk away from this month but I stayed strong and used the funds to get the Jack and monster.

Just wanted to share that with you all as it's been such a fun journey and it was the release of the Fright Night set that first got me into them as well as made me discover this fantastic forum that I've learned so much from. Can't wait to see what catches my eye from DD for this year!

 Ok, boils and ghouls the two pack and headcheese, are arriving to Martin's forwarder this Friday.
For our first release we are once again revisiting the land of Transylvania, seeing the sights and such I hear the castle has been abounded for a while now, shh you here that? Howling we better find shelter, as we find shelter I remember an incident in Vermont, some mugger lost his fingers, he claimed the guy bit them off.

Well, Transylvania equates to vampires. The Vermont mugger's missing fingers clue tells me who's doing all that howling about town,lol.  Two that are definitely going in my line up. Great news and great hints! ;)

The mugger clue is Wolf to be sure. 1994. Only movie involving a werewolf where a mugger gets his diigts bit off.

The Transylvania clue is vampiric obviously. But that one could be anyone....or anything.  Perhaps the long lost Radu from the Vampire wave? Or a footlong Carradine? or the start of something new altogether? Oh the excitement when it comes to vampires. Just as long as they don't sparkle....I'm in,lol.

I also have a soft spot for Vampires and am right at the end of watching the 1979 Dracula film with Frank Langella. I haven't seen it before but really like it with a whole load of UK actors in it that I remember growing up watching them on various sitcoms and comedy shows through the late 70's/early 80's. The set design and camera work is particularly good and feels like it's on location even if it is set work (haven't looked into it yet to find out the history on it).

Anyway, any Vampire is a good Vampire in my book.....even Grace Jones!

If you like Dan Curtis productions, Dracula is great! Palance is excellent in it and it has a lot of Dark Shadows atmosphere to it, including a great Robert Cobert score.

If you can get a bootleg of it, Norliss tapes is excellent. Very Kolchaky. Not a traditional vampire per se, but a good little undead flick.

Vampires seem to have the most staying power in the genre. Dracula has been done a zillion times. Then there are the variations. Kolchak...Night Stalker and Night Strangler are both technically vampires of a sort. Then he fought a vampire in the weekly tv series also. I think there are probably more vampires than werewolves or Mummies even.

I, too, can recommend The Norliss Tapes (1973).

(http://i.ebayimg.com/images/g/XYEAAOSw32lYp-rO/s-l1600.jpg)

Even though it features the undead/demonic it struck me as having a very creepy Lovecraftian vibe. This is some of Curtis' best work, right up there with The Night Stalker as far as I'm concerned (and I'm a huge NS fan). The DVD is OOP and pricey so unless you're a DVD collector with deep pockets you'll want to dig up a boot. This one is in dire need of a Blu-ray release with all the bells and whistles.

Great close up on the eyes at the end and I did enjoy it. I can see what you meant horror hunter about it needing a proper up to date release with extras ect but I'm it was available to watch.

Just finished the film so thanks for the heads up thm.

I knew I'd enjoy this one when Tom Baker and Terry Thomas's names came up at the start, some more classic UK actors from my childhood and Tom Baker was my Dr Who growing up so I've always had a soft spot for anything he's in. Infact it jogged my memory of an old film I used to own on VHS called The Mutations that he was in with Donald Pleasence. I can't remember much about it but I think it was a bit like a 50's style movie made in the mid 70's....Just found it and although I'm not sure I can recommend it here's a link to it incase anyone hasn't seen it and has a spare hour and a half - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7ZB8UZvk7XA (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7ZB8UZvk7XA)

Both menu items will be coming to Casa D' Gifford via meals on wheels as well. Scrumptious. Wolf is about perfect. Both sculpts are really great! Steve Thompson does it again!  Card art for both is great!
Title: Re: THE 2017 DD CAFE MENU.
Post by: Palifan on May 01, 2017, 10:44:25 AM
The Wolf card art is stunning and I had to go for it and the Jack P head sculpt is also amazing but as I still haven't seen this film yet so I needed to draw the line somewhere and let it go. I'm still very happy with my two Lee Dracs so am happy enough with them for the classic look of this character. It's funny though with all the mention recently on here about the various Dracula films and this new DD lineup coming our way, looks like we guessed a couple of what's to come.

Looking forward to seeing what comes next.

It's a great idea to do these two waves although I must admit that other than the bottom two Dracula's I'm not familiar with the others (one looks like Lee?), and I also only know the Were-Wolf from Wolf. Looks like I need some more education.

The top one is Lee. It's from a Jess Franco film called Count Dracula (El Conde Dracula). So-so film, but Lee looks great in it.

I am responding to your quote and Ian's too Mord...but I don't know how to do the multi quote thing,lol.

Jess Franco was....well....he made films I don't watch.lol. I saw El Conde Dracula on Bob Wilkins. the scene where Lee scares the wolves away with his arms is what inspired me to actually read the Dracula book. I had to see what I was missing in the novel. He does look great in it, and its (to the best of my knowledge) the first time Dracula is de-aged in film as he is in the novel. Lee said he thought it was the closest to playing the actual character of Dracula as he is in the novel. Good enough for me,lol. Langella, Jourdan and even Palance have never been recognized as a bust, resin kit, or naything to the best of my knowledge. So its a nice nod to collectors who love those films. Like Me!

As for the werewolves:

Waldemar Werewolf has tons of films (Spanish vehicles). His most famous (and the only one I give a flip about) is Werewolf Vs. the Vampire Woman.

Bridgestone is from Universal's Boy Who Cried Werewolf

and the final one is from The Undying Monster.

Two really nice releases by DD, although I must admit, I was really hoping for a foot long Carradine. Palance Dracula is a truly pleasant surprise though, not only because it is one of my favorite Dracula films, but because of the obscurity of this version of the character. Steve Thompson's sculpts (and Martin's paints) are great, as usual, and the card art is outstanding. My only complaint is that I don't think another version of Daninsky werewolf is necessary since he is already represented by DD in Mego & foot long versions. Would have liked to see a Howling or American Werewolf in his place. 
Title: Re: THE 2017 DD CAFE MENU.
Post by: mjaycox on May 01, 2017, 06:43:47 PM
This Daninsky Wolfman is from the film "El Retorno Del Hombre Lobo", aka, "Night of the Werewolf", aka "The Craving"

I think it is a nice bit of synergy considering the other Naschy figures that we're done... This movie is essentially a remake of "werewolf versus the vampire women", and has one of the most unique make ups of the series. So I am personally glad that Martin and Company are doing it

I did notice that they weren't up on the site for a while yesterday and thought that Martin was giving the subscribers a bit more of a chance but can see that they're there now.

I guess it's really hard to predict what will go quickly but I'm sure these won't be around for long, they're just too nice looking!

Matt, is there a distinct enough difference in the makeups to warrant another Daninsky werewolf? I've never seen NIGHT OF THE WEREWOLF (although I have seen WEREWOLF VS. THE VAMPIRE WOMEN), but I honestly have not seen a huge distinction, at least in photos, of the Naschy werewolves other than the pointy ears.

Oh yes indeed-- Naschy's makeup changes dramatically from film to film after WVTVW. None looks like the other

That being said, the WVTVW and Night of that Werewolf are the most iconic looks, and it is good that these are the ones being done

I think my only minor quibble with my Kiwi sundae is the tunic. Its loose at the neck exposing the flesh tone body beneath. That's very minor and falls under the "who cares" category where most of us are concerned, no doubt.  But I feel clothing can make or break a figure. Film accuracy, design, etc. can add a major wow factor or detract from a fantastic sculpt. Too much effects like dirt, blood, or too little ....its all important.

DD always has their hands full trying to please all the collectors out there, thats for sure,lol. Not an enviable position, but DD keeps on chugging.

In anticipation of The Boy Who Cried Werewolf' s eventual release, I had Amy Jones sew me up my favorite outfit from the film, and I have some mego scale hiking boots.  As the werewolf wore several outfits in the flick, I have no idea what the actual release will be dressed in. So I decided to be proactive in this case rather than reactive and have a nekkid figure laying around,lol. Now, the wait for the figure...lol.

I did my usual trick of sleeping on that months releases but then couldn't stop looking at the Omega Man double pack. In the end I managed to get one off of eBay for the same cost as the release but  paid on top for shipping. Really glad I did this as it's now on it's way to me and I just know I'm going to love them in hand.

I really do keep doing this by passing on the release only to then end up picking it up lol. At least I managed to get it at a good price (actually cheaper than if I'd have bought it from MIM), and the main thing is that it should be with me soon.

I really do need to learn from my mistakes and admit to myself that I just love them all!

Don't worry folks I sent a message to Martin yesterday about the june hints, he said he will get back to me in a day or two, just remember to look up to the skies, I wouldn't be surprised if we get something that has been teased for a long time.

Yeah I know double post.

Looks like the storm has passed, these old castles have many secrets in them, ranging from rooms to even artifacts, from amulets to even ancient tomes, speaking of I have forgotten their names but I remember two professors, one was researching this old book in his cabin, the other this old amulet, I find it silly that they waste their times like this, then again we are stuck in this castle.

This months figures have arrived at Martins forewarders, so expect them next week.
June 1st is still the day.

I am really hoping for some Romero Zombies. Mezco is putting out Stephen Flyboy and Plaid Shirt Zombie in 1:12 scale. I would like to see DD do Mego size. Also, some Creepshow figures would be nice.

Still would like to see Rev Kane from Poltergeist 2 and maybe dream sequence David Kessler from American Werewolf in London. The scene from the bed when his face had those yellow eyes, fangs and the blueish purple skin.

Solid list there the and great suggestion with The Fog. I think these slightly more modern figures would do really well amongst the classic selection we already have. Just shows how many more possibilities there are out there still to create and looks like DD will be around for quite some time which is very good news.....well maybe not for my wallet though  :laugh:

I wrote Martin, directly because I felt I had to.

That Deadite is one of the finest figures he and DD have done. It is probably the best figure they've made since Dr. Phibes in white robe

There are better characters to be sure. Ones I like more. But none done this perfectly

Card art is very well done too

Well done to everyone at DD

Matt
Title: Re: THE 2017 DD CAFE MENU.
Post by: Palifan on June 01, 2017, 10:20:31 AM
I also agree that the Deadite figure is stunning and could only go for one of this months releases so had to go with this one. I must admit that I'm not quite as big a fan of the artwork as I'd hoped but it might be due to the fact that the Count Dracula artwork is jaw dropping. I found it so hard to resist picking this figure up as well due to the artwork for it, especially the back of it but can't quite stretch to the pair this month.

Inspired releases though this month and I had hoped for maybe an 80's themed series with these two kicking it off but I'm sure there will be more to come over time. Ed's going to go along nicely with the 30th anniversary Evil dead 2 vinyl LP that I also picked up this week so it's all made for a great week for me.

Well done as ever Martin, you NEVER fail to deliver once again!  :D

Speaking of Dracula: those of you who ordered the Jack Palance Dracula will be well and truly pleased.  I received him, and Nicholson Wolf yesterday and both are great!!!  The sculpts are spot on and Wolf's eyes have a strange, lupine, glowing appearance....wonderful figures!

I skipped out on this month's offerings. Not a fan of Evil Dead (except the first film) and as fun as Monsetr Squad is: I don't collect anything from that film....but I am anxiously awaiting the July 3rd announcements.....and the hints that herald them.

Looks like DD had big hits with these two newer properties though. Even with raised edition sizes: they are all sold out. Congrats DD/Martin!

Post by: Palifan on June 03, 2017, 10:03:39 AM
Can't wait for my Wolf to arrive and even though I didn't go for the other Jack figure I thought the sculpt looked amazing. It was really hard to not go for it but as I haven't ever seen the film it didn't feel quite right to go for it (knowing me I'll end up thinking about it so much that I'll get one in the end lol). It's really good to hear that they both look amazing in hand though Anton and I've come to realize that they always look even better in person then when they're photographed.

I had to go for the Evil Dead 2 offering this month as it's a favorite film of mine although I must admit that I'm not a huge fan of the artwork for some reason (sorry to say that). The Monster Squad artwork is amazing but I feel the same that it's a fun film but not something I've watched more than once and felt it wasn't an essential pick up for me. I love the fact that with DD there really is something for everyone from month to month and I it's nice to see my collection grow.

Onto next month!  :D

A buddy of mine found a DD Chris Lee Dracula in a pile of Monster toys a few weeks ago in Hutchinson Kansas. He was missing his cape and he had scuff marks on top of his head. It was the 8 inch version. Is there a place he could order a replacement cape? I told him it was a long shot but worth a shot to ask.

I would just ask Martin. I bought my Van Helsing second hand and the previous owner threw the candlesticks away. He helped me out with a pair. Or, barring that, it's the same cape Night Flier or Count Krolock has. You could always switch out if you find one of those figures loose.

Thank you. I sent him the link to the UMA so I'll try to get them together.
I just think it's awesome that there was one out in the wild just laying around.

Unfortunately....I don't find this refreshing. I will explain. As limited as these are: I never expect to see something of this caliber wind up at garage sales or flea markets....but they are. The three instances I am aware of are as follows:

1. I saw a 1/6 Curse of Frankenstein in a junk shop. It was not an original paint up....it looked like someone who was doing a re-cast to test the waters. I informed Martin about it immediately and took a picture of it to inform him. The crummy place has since went under.....but the experience has not.

2. A member here found a big bunch of DD product at a yard sale. The figures were offered on ebay because the person who collected them went to prison for (most likely) the rest of his natural life.

3. I saw a twin pack at a flea market....the reason it was there was because the collector in question had died.

So....being the specialty items they are, and extremely limited in their production runs, it usually means something dreadful has happened. Then the items fall into the hands of someone who doesn't understand how unique they are, nor the special place they held in the heart of the previous owner.

Kudos to your buddy, of course, but the fact that the hair was scuffed and the cape was gone means that someone treated as less than what it was intended to be. Art...and special.

Does any of that make any sense,lol? it does in my head. :angel:

Title: Re: THE 2017 DD CAFE MENU.
Post by: Mord on June 05, 2017, 12:45:24 PM
It makes complete sense to me. It's almost like a vulture hovering. I think about it from time to time. I spent decades and $1,400 to get a mint, boxed Marx Frankenstein. It was my favorite childhood toy and brought fond memories. I feel that it will one day be sold for next to nothing to some random opportunist. I've learned to accept it. Such is life.
Title: Re: THE 2017 DD CAFE MENU.
Post by: John Pertwee on June 05, 2017, 01:05:36 PM
My view was that even highly specialized toys sometimes get played with. The guy sold his collection, and this was in it. He had plenty of low end stuff, and a few diamonds. I ended up with a Larry Talbot Sideshow 12 inch for $20 out of the sale. That means the reseller got it for at least half that.

Even the best collectibles eventually end up in "the wild" and then they're at the mercy of the forces of chaos...which have no mercy. People die, or experience some other catastrophe which causes them to lose their prized items. Time will destroy all, including our items and ourselves. Doom & Gloom much? Sorry, that's reality.  :(

Just received my Evil Dead Ed figure today and as ever it did not disappoint! Really does look amazing and love the amazing head sculpt as well has the hands. The clothing on all these DD figures always deserves a mention as they always sit right in line with resembling the figures outfit as well as that mego retro feel.

Top marks as ever to Martin and his team and it was a double helping of Evil Dead delight for me today as strangely the Neca Evil Dead 2 clothed Ash retro figure arrived at the same time, well I couldn't have just Ed hanging out on his own could I!

We must be getting close to next months offerings as well so looking forward to some hints on July's releases.  :D

Evil Dead Ed was just as awesome as I thought he would be, except he managed to break a few fingers by delivery time.  Those resin fingers are a big risk in the hands of a USPS employee!  I'm sure Martin will hook me up with a new hand, as he does anytime there is an issue like this.  Monster Squad Dracula did not disappoint either.  The packaging on this was tremendous.  I must admit that I wouldn't mind a break from vampires for a few months (unless it's a 1/6th Carradine or Countess Zaleska!).  I'm really hoping we get a DD 1/6th figure in July.  Talk about fireworks...

Well friends, July 10th is the day mark it on your calenders.

It all burned down even his masterpiece Marie Antoinette.

The Bub is outstanding and was an instant buy for me (it helps that I love these movies so much but the figure looks so amazing!). My payment registered straight away so I'm not sure why yours didn't thm, probably just a paypal delay that I've had before.

This new Romero collection looks fantastic and there are some great collections coming our way this year with what's been released already, can't wait.

Bub is wonderful as well...and I would've snagged him up if I were into modern horror a tad more. But I am classics heavy....so no need for me to hog a figure someone who is Romero heavy would want. Everything looks great! I am sure they will evaporate in the same timely manner as usual.

Over the last year, we have seen these new DD releases from retailers just sit on ebay. I think when the DD craze hit, retailers and flippers got on the band wagon. They bought every new release hoping to double and triple their investment. However, first, trends don't last, that's why they are called trends. Second, DD collectors can now enjoy a return to more reasonable prices. However, Bub is pretty popular and this figure is remarkably well done. In this case, I do not doubt a seller can get 3 times what the figure was originally sold for.

Just to echo everyone's thoughts, I think Bub turned out fantastic and ranks as one of the best DD Megos put out this year.  Jarrod is really nicely done as well, as we've come to expect with every Steve Thompson sculpt.  I must say that I've also been extremely impressed with the card art DD has put out over these last few months and the plastic shells that now open from the top, as opposed to the side.  Great job, Martin and crew!

I think Twisty the clown and Bub might be the 2 best figures DD released in the last year. However, I guess we will have to wait and see on Bub. Even if you don't like the characters, one would have to admit that if you are going for accuracy, they are 2 of the best. However, as far as an overall outstanding job and presence encompassing the figure, accessories, and cars art. I think Closet Monster with Jan in the pan, might take that title. ;D

Can't argue with you there the about both Twisty and the way Bub looks, both are totally amazing and I know that the figures compared to the pictures that normally come with these releases from DD always look way better in hand but the Bub already looks amazing so this could be a real stand out figure. The card art for Bub as well is outstanding so this latest wave of Zombie figures should be an all out classic!

can't wait to see it!!

Characters that could comprise at least 2 more Vincent Price waves:

1. Tomb of Ligeia
2. Diary of a Madman (...complete with blue eye stripe, knife and removable hat I hope)
3. Theatre of Blood
4. Haunted Palace (the magnificent outfit he wore in the film is worth the price of admission)
5. Tales of Terror (Melting face Valdemar)
6. Dragonwyck
7. Monster Club Vampire
8. Witchfinder Genral (I hate this movie....so I would pass on this one, but I know folks love the flick, so I cannot be entirely selfish about things,lol)

9. Last man on Earth two pack with Vinney and a Vampire
10. Return of the Fly two pack with Vinney and new Fly


and lets not forget Martin mentioned a House of Long Shadows wave once. 4 Figures...four masters of horror (albeit in their golden years)

Your memory's just fine Anton, there is a film from 2011 called Cabin in the Woods and it was a bit different than you first think and from what I can remember it wasn't too bad. That film has lots of different monsters so could be something from that.

Ash or Possessed Ash would be cool although Neca have already made a Mego style figure of both of these characters (which I recently picked up cheap to go with my Evil Ed). They're both pretty well done and it's always nice to have something different so I sort of hope that it's another character from Evil Dead that hasn't been already made by someone if it is based on that film. Saying that though DD do have a very certain look so I'm sure I'd go for it anyway.

Ahhhhhhhh......Scotty perhaps. Hadn't thought about that. He does knock Cheryl into the cellar and chain her up, and hack up the possessed Shelley. It isn't until he tells Ash "I don't care what happens to her, she's your girlfriend...you take care of her..." and then gets whacked that he changes from "hero" to "zero". Very good.

One thing I was wondering though if is the art on the back of the card is also an original take on the poster or a copy from it? It does look really amazing so great job either way.

So if one was to do a Carradine Dracula, would you like one head with top hat or one head, no hat. Or two heads, one of each?

I think either would be fine. However, have you thought out doing a Gary Oldman version of Dracula? I think he would make a great mego or 1/6 figure. I think since we already have many magnificent classic Dracula DD figures. A new, more modern Dracula would be a nice change to mix it up.

TWO HEADS ARE BETTER THAN ONE, Remember your Lee 1/6? Carradine deserves the same classy treatment imho. :angel:

I think I have an idea, have two headsculpts
one normal

and one in his hypnotizing stare.
(http://snarkymoviereviews.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/11/John-Carradine4.jpg)

and his top hat be a accessory.

similer to the 1/6 Lee Dracula with his hissing expression and solem expression.

Post by: Anton Phibes on August 14, 2017, 08:57:18 AM
Hmmnnn....hadn't thought of that. I think it seems to vary from artist to artist. Here's a classic Yagher~meister ~monster. Seems about the same length as Lee. But Dimensional Designs has his cape hiked because he has his arms raised. They also used the two heads trick. One with top hat as a sculpted part of the head. It worked for them.

(http://www.thedoctorsmodelmansion.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/08/mg-houseofdracula-01.jpg)
(http://www.gremlins.com/dimensional_designs/carradine.jpg)

Here is a shot of him with his cape outstretched, and it still appears to hang below his kness. So, perhaps a smidge shorter than your Lee since his in full length? This talk of Carradine Dracula 1/6 is exciting! A 1/6 Kharis would be equally as exciting....since for whatever reason Sideshow dropped the ball on all things Kharis back in their day.

Truth be told, I could probably make my own, Sir Spooky. But I want to lend my support to DD because I like Martin's stuff... and his offering would no doubt include a nice matching box to go along with Ygor, Dr. Pretorious and Henry Frankenstein. I do appreciate the offer though.  I don't know if I have seen any of your customs. Have you shown any off elsewhere in the forums?  I think Kharis and Carradine Dracula are two sorely missing from the Sideshow line up. Then there's always Dracula's Daughter and Son. Van Helsing (1931), Maleva, Sir John Tablot, etc,etc,etc. ;) ;) ;D

Absolutely two heads!  We've all waited for years since the Sideshow 1/6th line for Carradine Dracula that he deserves the deluxe treatment.  I agree with Sir Spooks, one "normal" head without hat, and one "hypnotic stare" head with hat sculpted on.  I have no doubt the figure with be EPIC, and will have the DD & Sideshow collectors all talking!

Anyone else think it's awesome that Martin took time to chime in over here like in the old days when DD was first getting started? I do.  It's a nice little touch that makes DD groovy. A little birdy tells me that the first monday in September (the 4th I believe) is the date for more reveals/pre-orders. Sir Spooky will no doubt confirm when he starts sprinkling the monthly hints about.

Super excited for the new Van Helsing Peter Cushing. Equally as excited by all this Carradine Dracula talk. Looking forward to Sept. 4th.

I concur. DD discussing things like a John Carradine Dracula in 1/6 makes my "interest barometer" tick up several readings. Martin coming back around to chat is awesome. It's one of the things I like/liked most about DD.... and the time I spent slinging paint for him. The conversation. The enthusiasm. The insider  info being shared. Ideas for figures we would like to see. Sharing interest in the hobby that brought us all here to this place.

Real life issues have been getting to me a bit. I haven't been as enthusiastic about my collecting as I have been in the past. At the very time I could use a bit of good old fashioned "monster kid"-ness, focus and interest have waned a tad bit. Primarily because I feel that I am spread so thin these days,lol. I am hoping DD can change that. No one else seems to be bringing anything of note out save for a few smattering of items here and there. Mezco's Myers/Halloween 1:12 certainly has a wow factor.....but there isn't exactly a ton of stuff coming from any other venue. Apparently we need another Monster Craze of the 1960's.

Anxiously awaiting whatever information/conversation Martin chooses to share here. Like a traveler through a desert searching for a refreshing oasis. 8)

It is the enthusiasm that brings to life future horror figures. Also when these lifelike figures are up for preorder it's only about proximately 4 weeks that they are shipped out, not like other manufacturers a year. So our anticipation is filled quickly and another happy customer😀

Without question, a world without Distinctive Dummies would be a very dull one for horror & sci-fi figure collectors.  DD gives me that same excitement (twice a month, when releases are announced and when I get my figures delivered) that I had as a kid seeing the Aurora models and Remco monsters stocked on the shelf at my favorite toy store.  It truly is the only consistent thing we've got going for us right now, so god bless you, Martin & crew.

Great releases as ever and another in the Evil dead gang always gets my vote. These possessed characters fit in so well with my Neca Mego version Ash and Evil Ash and I'm really looking forward to seeing last months Scotty, which should be arriving at any point now.

Fantastic looking head sculpt on Cheryl so another job very well done to the whole DD team responsible. I'm just glad I recently picked up a new cabinet recently as I was rapidly running out of space with my collection of these.

Thought I would pop in and drop you this month's hints personally. Juan is doing a great job but I fancied getting involved  ;) ;)  Please enjoy my little ditty  ::) ::) ::)

Hello to all on UMA
My time on here's been lacking
But you know I've been a busy bee
I'm not the kind for slacking

So here's a little rhyme
To give you all some clues
On the next DD releases to own
If and so you choose

My hints should pose no problem
There should not be any trouble
As I proudly riddle to you
A Steve Thompson Mego double

Some may Curse the first
But I think you all will see
That though he's appeared twice before
This is version three

On the second you can Count
He has a slight different look
The nearest the actor ever got
To playing by the book

So both the characters for this month
Are the actor same
I hope you are enjoying
My little monster game

Now the hints are over
They come from me to you
Be sure and check your inbox
The date, October Two

The Frankenstein went particularly low in my opinion and it's hard to see with mine costing me so much more when I bought it but that's the way the cookie crumbles I guess, just glad to have it all the same.

Jess Franco's Count Dracula 1970  (Christopher Lee with a mustache)

Thought I would pop in and drop you this month's hints personally. Juan is doing a great job but I fancied getting involved  ;) ;)  Please enjoy my little ditty  ::) ::) ::)

Hello to all on UMA
My time on here's been lacking
But you know I've been a busy bee
I'm not the kind for slacking

So here's a little rhyme
To give you all some clues
On the next DD releases to own
If and so you choose

My hints should pose no problem
There should not be any trouble
As I proudly riddle to you
A Steve Thompson Mego double

Some may Curse the first
But I think you all will see
That though he's appeared twice before
This is version three

On the second you can Count
He has a slight different look
The nearest the actor ever got
To playing by the book

So both the characters for this month
Are the actor same
I hope you are enjoying
My little monster game

Now the hints are over
They come from me to you
Be sure and check your inbox
The date, October Two

Great poem Martin. The monster collecting world is very lucky to have someone so dedicated and passionate about it. Thank you for all you have done and continue to do.

That is a great line-up and I also wanted that Mummy but never mind. I did get the Lost Boys figure so it wasn't a complete loss for me and that also came with the card art work which was something not listed. really happy with this figure and as always seems to be the way with DD figures, they always look even better in hand.

You can always tell when a DD hits a "bases loaded home run". They always do great figures, mind you, but some shine more brightly than others. I don't like AHS. Not at all. Yet there's no denying this figure is one of their finest. I know folks who bought it and don't even care about AHS. They just fell in love with the artistry of the figure and it's stunning presentation.

Been awhile since they evaporated that quickly. A good sign in my opinion. Speculators always kill everything....or at least mess it up. They messed up sports cards and comic books in the 90's. They mess up collectibles today. Hopefully these monsters are making their way into the hands of collectors and not flippers.

Hammer certainly still has collection fever amongst collector's though.

No poem this month but you have seen characters from this film before and please dont get rowdy but there is no prize for guessing, nothing, nada, zilch. Its amazing that if dont wear the glasses it can cause a fight while all the time the woman in the supermarket is telling tales on you.

As for this character it can't be groovy to lose all your friends while stuck in a cabin in the woods

Hi Guys.
Next mailing list December 4th. Now you know I am not one to complain but have had a bad time of it lately. I was exploring an old house recently when I was set upon by a squad of kids. One of them even kicked me in the Nards. Luckily I managed to escape into the sewers but lo and behold I was set upon by another gang of kids. This time the sprayed me in the face with battery acid. Losers, the lot of them!!!

I see thm. I was surprised to hear that there are more coming from The Monster Squad, not so much that DD are making them but more that it didn't show any others in the series on the back artwork in the same way I've grown accustom to on releases in the past. I noticed this also with the latest Evil Dead range and thought at first that these were going to be just single figures from these films.

I can definitely see the appeal of this series as they are so closely linked to the original Universal Monsters but as Monster Squad is not a film that was a big part of my growing up I passed on the initial release of Dracula. I think this is going to make a great set once they're all released and I know there are going to be some very happy people out there like I was with the Fright Night series which as well as being a  big film for me growing up, it was also the wave that first got me into collecting these DD figures. The collector in me really wants to pick up this Monster Squad wave as I know it's going to look stunning all put together but I feel I have to draw the financial line somewhere with my collecting habits and go for the releases that the films hold a special place for me in my heart. It's going to be hard to resist when the Creature or Frankenstein drops but I must be strong!

Can't wait to see to see these next releases and I'm sure I won't be able to resist at least one of them.

I have a pretty good theory on this. I kind of even asked Martin about it, but he hasn't given me a "yes" or "no" as to the train of my thoughts. Hear me out.

When a line is in the planning stages, and character choices are made: there is usually a lot of excitement among the creative parties involved. If the line isn't met with as much excitement as was anticipated with the release of the first figure in a wave: then there are these little circles promoting figures that never were made.

Emce messed up, in advertising Nurse Chapel and Vina on their retro Star Trek mego line. They were never produced. Spectre Toys showcased Josette and Quentin on their Dark Shadows card art. Yet they were never put into production for purchase either. These were fairly recognizable pop culture properties also. Not B movie monsters a lot of foks have never heard of.

I suspect Martin has some lines that weren't met with as much excitement as they should have been in the past. Karloff line comes to mind. Yet the little pictures were already advertising figures. So---even at a potential loss--Martin released them. Because we were told they were forthcoming.

The easiest way is to no longer advertise future figures in the wave in little circles. What if Monster Squad's initial character had been a bust? If Martin advertised 5 figures comprising a wave, he would have to follow through as to not disappoint us. Or say "Sorry, the sales were terrible.....so I won't be releasing Character X in the wave after all.

I am still annoyed Vina and Chapel and Josette and Quentin never were made available for purchase,lol.  So if it avoids the let down, I am ok with it.

My other thought is this: some folks will buy one character out of a wave and no others. The little circles could be bothersome for folks with extreme OCD who think they have to buy them all. I know folks who bought Monster on Campus, and that was the only figure in the Science Gone Wrong wave they bothered with.

Ditching the circles kind of is the best of both worlds for all parties involved. If a "Without Warning" figure is eventually sculpted and released, I know I would rather it be a stand alone card art. Rather than have little circles from films I have no interest in collecting being on the card art. :angel:

Of course, I could be completely wrong on all counts too,lol. Happy Thanksgiving! Gobble Gobble. :angel: :blank:

Remember--Evil Dead 2 and Evil Dead 1 are two different waves also.  Who needs circles when the owner of DD pops in to keep us updated anyway,lol?

Please don't scare me any more Anton, I can be a completest at times so your Evil Dead 1&2 comment makes me nervous  :laugh:

Mentioning completest though I think there's one figure from the Romero Dead series that I could pass on as there's a limit to how gruesome I can take with my figures before they become a bit too much for me to own. It's the one thing that has held me back from the odd release but I really can't stop coming back for more of the DD releases. I discovered them late in the day but have managed to put together a fairly big collection of them a feel satisfied with all the earlier releases I managed to pick up along the way. I think I now have all the ones I want that have been released so far and do enjoy seeing them on display.

You're right again Anton about there not being such a need for other releases being printed on the back of the artwork, the good people on here always keep us up to speed thankfully.

Ian---I was serious about Evil Dead 1 and 2 being 2 separate waves, bro. I think Martin said he planned 5 figures for the first film. I dunno how many for the second film. But they are each their own series.

Post by: the_horror_man on November 23, 2017, 07:04:59 PM
I collect what I like. I think Mord also subscribes to this theory. For me, I don't collect complete lines unless I like every figure in the line. I collect on an individual figure basis. Also, a well done figure from a movie I just kind of like, would probably make me purchase the figure. Although liking the movie is probably the first criteria for buying a figure, how well crafted the figure is definitely plays a part.

There is an example that I can use to demonstrate what I am talking about. The original Halloween is probably my number 2 favorite film of all time, perhaps number one. However, I never purchased the first McFarlane Movie Maniacs Michael Myers figure because it looked nothing like him. I have a whole bunch in that line, but not the Myers. However, when they came out with the 18 inch Myers, I purchased that one.

i'm with you for the most part on collecting figures, particularly from DD. I purchased the Jack Palance Dracula from this new wave but may only also pick up the Frank Langella one due to being familiar with these two. The Evil Dead figures I feel like I will need each of these to complete the set as these films were very big for me (as they probably are for a bunch of us on here). Saying that I did think twice about the recent Ash figure due to Neca doing such a great Mego style one but once I saw the picture of the DD one I couldn't resist. I have also picked up the odd figure from a series as I've really liked the look of it and it's normally based on a film I'm into. Occasionally I've picked up a figure because I've just loved it without seeing the film like the Plague of Zombies one but did then seek out the film which I enjoyed very much. Sometimes if a figure just looks stunning it's hard to resist but I'm trying to now focus a little more on characters based on films I really love or have a special place for me.

Interesting what you say Anton about there being two different series based on the first two Evil Dead films. I dare say I'll end up with them all but will be interested to see what characters get picked. Looks like yet more exciting times to come from DD!  ;D

While weíre on the subject of waves, Iím curious to know if there are any older DD waves that remain to be completed.  I happen to be a completist for the most part, and it helps when virtually everything DD puts out is worthy of purchase.  There have been a few figures (I can probably count them on my fingers) that I chose not to purchase simply because I never saw the film or didnít have an interest in the character or sculpt.  But for the most part, Iíve loved just about everything that has been offered.  It would be nice to have a record of those figures from previous DD waves that have yet to see the light of day.

I can help you out there, Joe.

Older series to finish up:
1. Vampires 1: Radu was planned
2. Werewolves Wave 1: Legend of the Werewolf
3. Horrors of the 30's-40's: Cat and the Canary


Newer series to finish up:
4. Romero Zombies: 3 more figures
5. Monster Squad: 4 more figures
6. Evil Dead 1: 2 more figures
7. Evil Dead 2: unknown how many more are planned
8. Classic Dracula: Langella and Jourdan figures
9. Werewolves Wave 2: Waldemar Werewolf, Undying Monster werewolf figures

That's all I can think of.  DD usually has a bunch of series running concurrently and staggers the releases out between stellar sellers and slower movers. Unfortunately the older stuff moves slower.

I've never known DD to not finish a series they advertised....but with the economy still sluggish and wages stagnant (while the price of everything else keeps going up)....the day may come. Hopefully not. I think this is pretty much a list of all active series old and new though. Enjoy!

That's really not that many left to complete the waves and most of them are more recent releases. I was surprised to see another They Live double pack released last month though as I thought this was only ever going to be the first set. I'm thinking this set did well and the decision was made to make a couple more to go with them. I'm glad that happened though as it's nice to have them all and I wonder if maybe there might be something out there already that might get more figures added at a latter date, DD seem to be always full of surprises!

After spending a lot of time chatting with Martin, being involved in brainstorming sessions (which he does often with some of his customers), and seeing some previews over the years....he has so many things planned it's awesome.  DD really is the main game in town for figures of films we want merchandise from but no one wants to pick up. The primary reason being there is little or no money to be made. martin and DD is truly a labor of love primarily.

Title: Re: THE 2017 DD CAFE MENU.
Post by: Anton Phibes on November 24, 2017, 12:44:54 PM
....and you're right of course. There are only three series that have a final figure lingering. I am pretty sure all the other waves listed debuted this year.  I know Cat and Werewolf have gotten past the sculpting, painting, and card printing stage. But let's face reality: Radu's fanbase is limited. As is Cat's and Legend of the Werewolf. Plus...Radu and Cat have had something in the realm of merchandise done of them before. Model or bust or what not.

It's safer to put out Romero Zombies or Evil Dead knowing those are uber popular properties. Or Monster Squad, a film that is well beloved but has little or nothing out there for people. Or even a slightly older property like Dracula....because the actor choices for each character has literally had nothing made for them....save for El Conde that had a limited release resin model. Being active in the garage kit hobby for years, the bottom line for kit producers was always "I would lose my shirt if I did Palance, Jourdan, or Langella." Yet DD pulled them off....with astonisheing likenesses and sell out successes....so far.

After conversations with Martin, the B and C list older lingering, unfinished properties will probably be released mixed in with figures that will sell out immediately. None of us want Martin to release figures that causes him to lose his shirt, or cause DD fiscal problems. Then we wouldn't get the things he has planned. I for one am anxious for some newer, unacknowledged properties. Things like Without Warning, Creepshow, The Fog, My Bloody Valentine,  etc,etc,etc 8)

Now I'm the proud owner of Blacula who's going to look great on display with his other DD chums. This one came up at half the price the last one sold for and even though the seller had only 1 feed back rating which made me a little nervous, he arrived in perfect shape and the seller was a pleasure to deal with. Very happy all round and I'm guessing my last DD orders should be arriving soon so it's been a month for DD for me  ;D

That's awesome, M. Glad to hear the regulars can have a chance before the scalpers. I knew this one would sell out fast.....but I must admit even I am surprised at just how fast it went. :o

Wow that went quick and I'm just glad I managed to order a Pennywise just after I received the email this morning. Some times it pays to check things in the middle of the night with being in the NW, no paypal refund received so I'm hopeful that I won't be getting one as I'm never going to be able to afford the original release so it's great to be able to add this figure to my collection in some way.

Great work all round Spock, another masterpiece and well done for limiting this release to one per customer for the most part, I think it's certainly helped to get this into the right hands.  :D

They all came out really well and I love all the clothing and watch/necklace on the female alien. Last month was an expensive one for me with these and the Blacula I picked up but they're all worthy figures in my ever expanding DD collection. Looking forward to seeing Pennywise next year but it's been a fantastic year for these amazing creations so keep up the stellar work Martin and team DD  ;D

I know the man that had this for sale, and it actually did come out of a large pile of loose figures. It was loose in a collection of Sideshow 12 inch figures loose and packaged and did not come with a cape. The hair had paint missing, and was thrown in a pile for sale like it was nothing. He knew what it was immediately.

Makes me more appreciative of mine. That these things are getting thrown about and treated as disposable this early in the game means there are certainly less than 50 minty ones still out there. So, like Sideshow pieces, some get damaged and pitched. Making the remaining ones all the more rare. Cards are being thrown away by at least 2 collectors I have come in contact with here at the forums or on mego forums. Its odd that those lovely cards would be pitched.

It does make you wonder how it ever ended up in this sad state. Maybe it was from a collect5or who passed away or even a collection that was stolen and the thieves didn't really know what they had. hard to know for sure but at least someone has it now who cares and I'm sure if they asked Martin what paint was used for the hair it could be patched up pretty well. There might even be a chance of getting a cape for it as well as I think this cape has been used on other releases.

Hopefully we'll get to see it back to it's former glory at some point.

As for the seller of the few Pennywise figures I think it's the same company that commissioned the George Reeves Superman recently and must have a good relationship with Martin. Each month I notice they have a few DD figures for sale so knew that they're someone who supports these figures. Their prices have always been under what others have been asking for the same figures as well so I've never had much of a problem with them. I do understand though how frustrating it is when you miss out on something the first time around, it's certainly happened to me and it's never nice paying over the odds. Just remember to keep a close eye on those emails each month to avoid disappointment.

Yes, it was like rescuing a poor abused animal from a shelter.  The figure was actually not in too bad a shape; just some chipped paint on the hair and some marks on the face.  I've already hit Martin up to sell me a cape, and I'm sure he'll come through as he always does.  I'll try to post pics when the Count is back and ready to attack!

I have helped others out on the forum, and thm can attest to my touch up work, as can others. Just pm me if ya wanna take me up on it. 8)
Awesome, Richard!  I may have to take you up on that.  I know you share the same passion and love for DD as I do, and would do a killer job restoring the piece.  I know this firsthand.  Thanks, brotha.

I have been authorized to help out with some hints for the season as Martin has been positively buried with work and is taking a break at the moment. Some hints to keep us all happy, yesiree.

A nice footlong sub is planned that will put anything on the menu at Long John Silver's to shame. Tasty, and bloody good. One we have been anticipating.

The second menu item is a bit smaller but packs a wallop. A delicious, slightly rare tongue sandwich. Just the thing to get you up and walking during this cold dead winter season.

Both dishes will be hot and ready, and showing on the menu January 8th. Watch your in boxes. Order up! 8)

I guess that even Monster-Santa needs a break, too. Carradine Drac and a Romero zombie? Couldn't get any cooler than that. I've been hankering for a blood-rare 12" sub.

Music to my ears, Richard! We FINALLY get the footlong sub we have all been looking forward to for some time (hopefully in a deluxe edition). And I'm sure the Dr. Tongue mini-sandwich will also be delicious!

We all say we long for footlongs....gotta order off the menu to keep the chef interested in preparing these rather more expensive feasts for us.

Nah...think differently. "You have pretty skin...give it to us!" ;)  I thought both hints were give a ways honestly,lol. If you haven't seen both films though, I can understand. Both characters are deadly. Both take long naps, until they are awakened by certain distinctive....hungers. That's all I am allowed to say. Rest assured, both will sell out and last as long as gray water vapors in the air.

It looks like Shelly's still there and even though I didn't pick her up in the small hours of this morning I did just get her as it seems a shame not to do for the full set of these now that I've started. Pennywise doesn't surprise me in the slightest that he's gone though as that might well be a contender for one of DD greatest to date, I also get the feeling that Martin may have had to refund a few people trying score multiples of this one (other than the odd long term sellers of these).

I took a pass on Dr Tongue due to it being a little too gory for me but did think about it as I have the Bub figure which is excellent and figured it would be of the same high standard.

If you get a moment to take one of your great photos of it thm it would be nice to see.

Hi Ian, yes, Dr Tongue is a bit gory. However, not as gory as you might think. Mego's have that certain cute charm no matter how creepy pr terrifying the original character is. Maybe at some point I'll take some shots. However he's resting comfortably in his plastic clam shell on the shelf and I would hate to disturb him ;D

ďA double decker Ham sandwichĒ...music to my ears. Sounds like Dracula A.D. 1972 Count & Johnny Alucard, perhaps?  Iím stumped with the first clue.  I will have to revisit all the unfinished waves to see if I can figure it out.

I'll take a stab at the first clue: A Megostyle Dr. Schreck (tarot cards, 5 passengers). Since I was apparently "off" the first time, my 2nd guess on the 2nd clue would be "To The Devil...A Daughter" 2-pack (Chris Lee's "Father Michael" and Nastassja Kinski's "Catherine" characters).

That is probably the quickest of this series and I'm glad I picked one up this morning. It's going to be my first of probably many sent to the UK so it'll be interesting to see if I get hit with an extra customs tax, hopefully it won't be too bad.

Great offering though this month and here's to the next!

Any idea when last months ones are due to ship?

To the best of my knowledge this month will leave folks stunned. I don't know the exact date yet; but if you miss out the secondary market prices may cost you an Arm, by George. Everything old is new again on this triple Bill. We all know ebay is a Circus. So make sure you have lots of Pennies saved. Twin sandwiches and a single. That's all the menu I am privy to at the moment.

Well this could be a slight nightmare for me as I'm leaving for the UK around the time I'm thinking the email will drop and could miss out on the small window of opportunity to pick something up.......hopefully there's a clue to see if it's something I can pass on or will be devastated if I miss out on.

Never too early to start giving hints for next month's reveals and pre-orders is it?  That being said, it's really Bogus when we have to wait for Scraps of information to be revealed. Holding out to see which particular Monster is being cobbled together by DD's Squad of workers. Makes ya wanna charter a jet to Thailand at the local Airport and Head over to DD  and ask for any information that can be given. It's worth a Shot. Any Port in a storm as they say. :angel:

I'm finally connected back to the internet after waiting weeks for it to happen here in the UK but good to see some hints for may's drop  ;D

My Linda arrived here safely though and looks as fantastic as I'd hoped for and looking forward to seeing my Clowns once they arrive. It's so good that DD deliver around the world as it means I can still get my monthly fix.

Look forward to next months offerings!

Glad it all worked out Ian. Also, I received Evil Dead Linda last week and she is great. The face sculpt and paint are extremely accurate. Probably one of the most accurate of the series.

Hmmmmnnnn....so we only have one "legitimate" guess and no guesses for the other. I guess you would have to be a crack shot to take out the the other. The hint was a little Tore Up I suppose. If anyone goes to the Airport to charter your trip to DD...make sure you pack a Flannel. This awkward weather can make for a Surprise Encounter before boarding the plane. I sure hope there isn't a run on jet fuel. Would hate to find a delay because the "pumps were left darn near empty."  :angel: :angel: 8)

I noticed the ones on eBay as well thm so thought I should check in. In a way it's good to hear you haven't received yours yet as it means mine are also probably on their way or maybe getting caught up in customs which can happen out here in the UK.

Deep breaths, Ian. If it helps...I always seem to get mine later than others also. I think it has more to do with geography. Forwarders groups them by West Coast, East , MidWest, etc. i always got mine arounf the same time as Rob. I am in Ohio, he is in the New England area. So i think its geographically divided.

This is the first time I've been in the UK whilst ordering some goodies so I'm wondering if there will be any customs charge for me. I tend to have my figures sent to my work address so that I know they won't get left on the doorstep but in the past I've had the odd thing sat at the postoffice as they've forgotten to send me a note saying I need to pay a customs charge. This is why I thought I'd check in with the guys here as it's always hard to trust the postal service 100%.

DD have always come through for me and offer a top service but it's a shame I can't quite say the same thing for the post all the time. That all being said though I still can't wait to see last months offerings as well as seeing what's coming this month  ;D

lol... Yes, unfortuantely, as Mr Anton knows, almost no one has more issues than I do when it comes to problems with receiving packages.

Also, I don't think there will be customs charges for those figures. Toys sometimes don't carry the charges. However, it depends on the country. If I was a betting man, I would say you shouldn't incur any customs charges.

I can help you out there, Joe.

Older series to finish up:
1. Vampires 1: Radu was planned
2. Werewolves Wave 1: Legend of the Werewolf
3. Horrors of the 30's-40's: Cat and the Canary


Newer series to finish up:
4. Romero Zombies: 3 more figures
5. Monster Squad: 4 more figures
6. Evil Dead 1: 2 more figures
7. Evil Dead 2: unknown how many more are planned
8. Classic Dracula: Langella and Jourdan figures
9. Werewolves Wave 2: Waldemar Werewolf, Undying Monster werewolf figures
Found it, Ian.  I wasnít sure which thread it was on.  Outside of the Romero, Monster Sqaud and Evil Dead waves, it appears that 7 more stragglers from previous waves need to be completed (Radu, Legend of the Werewolf, The Cat and the Canary, Langella & Jourdain Draculas, Undying Monster & Waldemar Werewolf).

Don't give up on either of those, HH. As a matter of fact, that Werewolf I have just agreed to do the paintwork for as a freelance.  So definitely don't give up on him. The sculpt is nice. Hope I can do it justice.

Don't give up on either of those, HH. As a matter of fact, that Werewolf I have just agreed to do the paintwork for as a freelance.  So definitely don't give up on him. The sculpt is nice. Hope I can do it justice.
Good to hear, Anton. I know you'll do an excellent job.

I still hold out faint hope for the Blind Dead Templar. I know Martin would sell through quickly on those in DD small runs. I think many of these potential figures are at a big disadvantage because he obviously isn't a Eurohorror fan. But, anything's possible...

Never give up hope. Recently watched a few of the Blind Dead films so anything possible. Its all about time.
Hope everyone got the tracking number i attached to their paypal receipts. The ones sent to US are just arriving in the country so expect them soon.

Hey HH and Martin: here is a custom I did a few years ago.  It can be done. I don't even think I have watched one of those flicks,lol. Just went by reference pics.

hair is glued on, not sculpted. I used a custom sculpt mego style Ghost Rider head and a robe from a wrestling figure. Painted with weathering effects and railroad mud. Skeletal hands and arms from an emce zombie build a figure kit.

With Martin's resources, he could do a much better job in his sleep.

Good job, man! Still guardedly hoping for a DD version at some point. Albeit some far-flung point. It would make a killer 1/6th scale figure, but then most any figure is better at 1/6th scale.

Ossorio's Blind Dead films have a large fan-base. It's widely considered as one of the most important Spanish Horror series. The figures would disappear as quickly as anything else DD has produced.

BTW, Anton, I'm lovin' that Verne Langdon Zombie 1/6th scale figure...and the Tiki Mug and Swizzle Sticks are spectacular!

Doing my best to keep the Verne Langdon Zombie alive, and get the product his heirs offer to the appropriate interested parties. Parties like you, and me, and JP, and anyone else who will listen.

His albums are up on youtube by the way if ya wanna give any a listen and decide if they are right for your collection.

 I have Music for Zombies on CD, and The Phantom at the Organ and Vampire at the Harpsicord sealed LPs from back in the day. Great music and cool artwork! Check them out if you haven't already bro.

Yeah, man, I bought those CDs through Scary Monsters several years ago. I've listened to Music For Zombies probably 20 times in the car when I was out roaming around on the weekend. I have several original monster LPs from the '60s and '70s as well, though I still need to get some of the VL ones. I'll be sending you a link to the podcast I was telling you about with the VL bit on it in a few days. Derek will probably post my VL pics on his website as well. Hopefully the VL website enjoys some extra sales as a result of the podcast and they make more cool VL stuff for us to buy. Verne Langdon Forever!

No doubt about it, HH.  The Knights Templar would be a great addition to the DD catalog, and would be another sellout in either 1/6 or 1/9 scale!

From what the little birdie tells me, Kharis is probably a go, but he ma be the last 1/6 figure. Depends on how well he does. Carradine did well enough to have DD leaning towards Kharis. Kharis does well....maybe those sales can sway DD to tip their toe in the water yet again. Let's get Kharis first though,lol. :angel: 8)

Really glad to see these up on offer though as I know there are many fans out there that have been waiting for these and it's nice to pick off any missing figures from the individual collections.

Got it. I'm passing again though.

I've become very selective about buying DD figures. I'm not that interested in most of the figures that DD has been doing (not at DD prices anyway), and I'm practically out of display space. I still enjoy my DD collection, and I still plan to buy certain figures when they get released. I collect a wide range of Monster and comic book related things so by not buying a DD figure I can put a sizeable chunk of change towards completing some of those Bronze Age comic book runs, or buying Monster Stuff (VL Zombie stuff for example), or keeping up with the latest Blu-rays or books. To each his own.

Being in the Uk which is that bit closer to where these figures are sent from, amazingly I received my Airport Zombie over two weeks ago. That being said though my two pack and single clowns didn't arrive until well after everyone else received theirs so it seems to change each month based how the postal service are feeling that months.

I'm sure it will be in your hands very soon and can tell you that it'll be well worth the wait once you have them.

It is always a good morning when you wake up to a double dose of Steve Thompson sculpts!  Langella Dracula looks very cool, and is the first time I have ever seen his character turn up as a posable figure of any kind!  A very nice addition to DD's extensively awesome vampire figures. 

I was never a big fan of the SHOCKER movie, and to be fair, I haven't seen it in about 20 years, so maybe I might appreciate more today.  Nonetheless, I must say the Shocker figure looks nice and I dig DD taking a crack at the 80's monster wave.

My Bloody Valentine (Harry Warden/ Miner)
House (Big Ben Zombie)
The Burning (Cropsy)
All very niche cult characters...although I recognize all 3 from pictures I've seen over the years, I can honestly say the only film I've seen of the 3 is My Bloody Valentine.  Any of them worth watching?

House is good. Goofy...but good. like Evil Dead 2. The Burning has a huge cult following, but I never got into it. My Bloody valentine is a persona guilty fave.

If it's goofy and gory like Evil Dead 2, then I will definitely need to take a look at House and become more familiar with Big Ben Zombie.

Speaking of zombies, I would really LOVE to see DD do a wave of Lucio Fulci Zombies or Romero's Night of the Living Dead next!  Based on the initial zombie wave, I think Martin and crew can do wonders with any one of these films characters!

These sound interesting. The Big Ben should make quite the figure. ;D

I'm with you on that one and thanks for the list Anton, I knew it wouldn't take someone long to help out.

House was a favourite of mine from back in the day so this may well be one for me.

Not quite. Half right. The other entry is a personal favorite of mine. A character you can always rely on to soar to great heights to perform his night flying horrors. He's so changeable.  8)

The Dracula Wave has proven to be my favorite with Mr. Thompson seriously outdoing himself with the Langella and Jourdan likenesses. They aew wonderful. It's also a testament to DD to venture into virgin territory with Palance, Langella, and Jourdan. Incidentally, I might add I had a little nudging on Martin's ear going on hoping these would happen,lol. Like Wasp Woman and Boy Who Cried Werewolf. Once you've been collecting this stuff into your third decade, other monsters besides the big 7 need some love too.

Post by: Palifan on August 09, 2018, 02:08:14 AM
These comments are quite sad to read and also I agree it's maybe better that these figures fly under the radar a bit, not so much for the collectors but more so for the creators as I'd hate to see these stop production for some legal reason.

The way figures like these are made now a days for the most part is that they have very detailed sculpting and multiple points of articulation. I think that the people who wrote the comments missed the point that these are made in the style of mego figures from back in the day and there is is a real charm to them. I must admit that it took me a while to get onboard with these figures for some reason but after looking at the various releases and reading up on all I could find out on them I really got into them and now have built up a nice healthy collection of them.

People will always have their preferred area of interest but I think with the fact that each figures always sells out within a couple of days (or hours some times!), proves that there's more than a big enough fanbase for them. I personally can't wait for each month to come around and see what's next on the menu for us  :D

I just finished the paint chores on this one.
They arrived in DD land earlier this week. Martin likeys.  Hopefully everyone else will too.  So the wait for Wally 2.0 shouldn't be too far off. I am expecting Undying Monster parts this week, and have already offered my services for  2 other subjects that I will hopefully be painting. Now that my aunt has partially stabilized and I am about 70% recovered from the broken elbow, sprained wrist, pulled muscle, and road rash associated with taking a curb at 15-20 miles an hour on my bike....I can paint monsters again for awhile.

The first thing I said after the accident was "I ain't ridin' anymore.". Then my wife bought me a brand new top of the line (for me anyway) Schwinn.  I have been back on it, and it has a speedometer. I can get that booger running at 22 mph. Not for long though,lol. My average speed is about 13 mph and 10-15 mile distances. I try to stay on smooth, dry, gravel free surfaces since the incident. My aunt is doing better. For awhile I didn't think she was gonna make it. Her kidney numbers were way too low and she wasn't taking care of herself.  She seems to have made a turn around so some of the stress is off. Thanks, bro.

My Jourdan Dracula arrived and all I can say is wow. This Dracula series is one of Dds finest hours. From the subjects chosen to the likenesses to the card art.

I think I rate the wave as follows

1. Jourdan is my favorite
2. Langella almost tied.
3. Palance
4. Lee /El Conde.

This is a great set.

Agreed.  This set really ranks up there with DD's Zombie wave, which has been truly outstanding thus far.

Well it's a werewolf winner for me today and although I'm not familiar with the other release it's another great looking figure.

Amazing work and a happy forum I'm sure  ;D

Having painted all those darling little Werewolf head and hands sets, I can attest to one thing...the pics don't show all the nuances of details (as usual, these little boogers always look better in person) that are in the sculpt. Ron Gearing knocked it out of the park.  The Miner is great also, and has metal and rubber pieces. Gab did phenomenally for something that is essentially a nondescript monster. Lots of details all around. These two figures are fab. Next month....well, next month: OH. BOY. Just don't be late to the show.  The only hint I have been given the ok to supply will pop up mid month. Stay tuned.

Thanks HH! Looks like Wally is selling quite briskly too. Woot!

DD still the hottest game in town for underexposed/ neglected Monsters we all know and love.

If we can just get Black Sunday and Black Sabbath two packs.....featuring these bad boys/girls....Foreign Horror might finally get a nod beyond Mr. Naschy and Hammer,lol Hope springs eternal!

Here's an eBay listing for the DD Naschy Werewolf 1/6th scale for a pretty good price ($150 w/free sh)

https://www.ebay.com/itm/Distinctive-Dummies-Paul-Naschy-Werewolf-Custom-12-Megostyle-Figure/163231765197?hash=item26015f12cd:g:Q4AAAOSw65FbZTv5 (https://www.ebay.com/itm/Distinctive-Dummies-Paul-Naschy-Werewolf-Custom-12-Megostyle-Figure/163231765197?hash=item26015f12cd:g:Q4AAAOSw65FbZTv5)

(https://i.ebayimg.com/images/g/Q4AAAOSw65FbZTv5/s-l1600.jpg)

There's also a listing for the 1st DD Naschy Werewolf (Mego-style) but that one's $220.

Some good deals on DD Hammer listings too. Looks like the dealers and speculators are still dribbling out DD product and prices have cooled to the point you can get some of these at, or around, original cost. You never know how long this will last though since there are so few of these figures in existence. If I wanted a given figure badly I would take advantage of the current soft market.

Well, they are British you know,lol. I am in the cornfields of Ohio. USA. 'Murica. When I was  in high school Lit, I had to read 3 stories by two foreign authors. I picked HG Wells and Bram Stoker. Easiest reports ever. Everyone else was wracking their brains thinking of people from France, and Italy, etc. I picked an Englishman and and Irishman. My teacher thought it was very clever since they were indeed "foreign". My classmates hated me,lol. :angel:

Looking forward to getting the Naschy. According to the weather reports Florence's impact should only be felt in the Carolinas. I feared we might get excessive rain in the Chattanooga area but a local weatherman is calling for less than 1/2" of rain from it. I feel for those folks near the coast though. Can you imagine seeing your waterlogged collection washing down the street?! That's real Horror for you.  :(

(https://c2.staticflickr.com/2/1868/42957042380_ed4bfb6744_b.jpg)

The figure is very good (excellent paint job, Anton!). I was worried when the mailman handed me the box because it was absolutely beat to hell. It was open because there wasn't enough structural integrity left for it to stay closed anymore. Even the clamshell is dented pretty badly on the left edge and the left side of the bubble. But, the figure made it okay. I'm glad this wasn't in a cardboard display box like the 1/6th scale figures are because it would have probably been flattened. Good thing those clams are tough.

Great figures!

Did the mailman hand it to you like everything was fine? I have had them hand me damaged boxes and not even acknowledge it. There was a time when I was receiving packages that looked like someone was taking a broom handle and stabbing it through the boxes. I told the mailman, this needs to stop, I have received the last 2 or 3 boxes with almost idential puncture holes in the boxes. This seems on purpose now. It stopped happening after that.

Maybe if you message Martin, he will send you a new clamshell to replace this one with your next order.

The mailman acknowledged that the box was trashed, it was really impossible to do otherwise. I checked out the contents before I signed for it. He said if I found damage to the contents later I could still take it to the PO and start the insurance grind, but I'm not going through that mess over a clamshell.

If the damage is really obvious, it's much easier to refuse delivery.

The Post Office will return it to the sender and they will have to deal with them - after all, it's the sender that bought the insurance - not you.

You will get a replacement shipment while the shipper is still waiting for re-imbursement.

Nice. Push everything back to the shipper who in the first place subsides shipping costs and would be happy to double box everything if the buyers wanted to stump up the extra $20 for increase in weight and charges. USPS are a disgrace it's as simple as that. Horror hunter knows that the person who sent him the box, namely me, would do everything within reason to rectify the issues if asked.

The clamshell isn't a big deal. I'm just glad the figure got here okay. If you want to send a replacement clam next time I order another figure that would be great.

I haven't had any trouble with DD package damage since I ordered the Count Yorga 1/6th years ago, and M stepped up on that one and sent me a replacement display box. DD customer service is top notch.

The USPS is absolutely dreadful. I've  gotten items that were perfectly packaged, and still they find a way to damage them. I mean, they really have to go out of their way to do that level of destruction. My tip for DD collectors, is to replace your damaged clamshells with ones from figures you value less. For instance....i got a slightly dinged Hammer package and replaced it with perfect Karloff clamshell. Both are great, but Hammer is my favorite line to display.

THM, letís be honest...the EMCE version was pretty crummy, and the 1/6 Executive Replicas version was just ok (although I did like the fact they offered alternative heads).  Based on DDís previous zombie figures, I know Martin & crew could do a far better job on Cemetary Zombie, or Little Karen zombie.  I would also love to see Johnny and John Russo zombies as well!

Ya, I didn't buy either EMCE NOTL Dead zombie figures. I was given the Amok Time 1/6 one, I really like that one. Thought they did a great job. If DD does a Cemetary zombie, I would buy it.

thm


I loved Emce's NOTLD Ben and Graveyard Zombie. I hated Barbara and Karen though. The packaging downgrade and the figures inability to stay shoed and stable were a turn off for displaying MOC.

The Amok Time Graveyard Zombie was excellent. Great likeness, four heads, two sets of hands...color and black and white versions in one package! The original price was $49.99 (later raised to $69.99). If you don't like this one, there's no pleasing you.

Mord....how many did Executive Replicas/ Amok Time get produced in the series before they gave up the ghost? I know Ben, Barb, and the Graveyard Zombie made it....did they produce Karen or the others? I cannot remember.

So does M. He is slowly working towards more this type and less of old type. He has told me some killer plans he has up his sleeve. As far as under represented horror cult films go: DD is still tops game. Who else would bring Langella, Palance and Jourdan Draculas to our collections? No one has touched those in all my years collecting. Now I have them in my line up. The H3's are the bomb for folks like me, who cannot afford the real estate devotion to the ToTS masks, but still want something of the film in our collections. Excellent job DD!!!!!

Just received my Halloween bundle and I must say that I'm floored by both how fast they arrived and also the shear craftmanship!

These are an absolute work of art and DD just went to a new level. I love the new packaging for them as well as there's no need to remove them from their boxes as they display really well as they are and also don't take up much space.

One thing I thought worth mentioning is that if team DD use these boxes ever again it's probably worth putting a sheet of bubble wrap inside the box in between the window and figure. Mine arrived pretty much perfect except for a tiny nose rub (no problem at all though) on the witch child but some bubble wrap would protect this from happening I think. I'm sure it would be easy to do and hopefully everyone's will arrive with no problems (they are tied in well so there shouldn't be).

Well, I can't wait to get home and display these but they're such an amazing addition to my collection so thank you all involved once again, it's made my week  ;D

That was fast. Also, the figures were not wrapped? M always wraps the figures. This is not good at all. If the figures were not wrapped, they will be greatly damaged. Especially with the luck I have and Anton as well.

Palifan - really surprised to hear about the nose rub. Those boxes have special inserts which are a perfect fit inside the box. Wrapping the figures wasn't really an option and if I'd have put a piece of bubble in, I would have got complaints about the tape holding the lid shut. ah well, back to the drawing board

My mailman is a Nightmare from Cthulhu's deepest dankest darkest pit, yet 95% of the time DD thwarts his tendency to destroy worlds. I have faith. Shy of mailing something in a solid block of adamantium, there's no way to avoid some shipping damage. Fingers crossed.

It really isn't a big nose rub but I can see some markings on the inside of the clear plastic where the nose touched. I think even though they're tied into the backing there's still a little movement which is how this happened. I don't remember my triple pack being taped which is why I mentioned the bubble wrap but I must have missed it so can understand the problem of wrapping them, I'm sure there would be lots of people wanted to not damage the box to get at them.


I feel there's no need to go back to the drawing board though, you've created a masterpiece that really will be cherished and prized by collectors for years to come. Such amazing work!  ;D ;D

I think the Halloween 3 boxed set is the finest presentation done so far. by DD for characters from a film. I say presentation, because that's what they are. I can be swayed to add something to my collection, even if I am not the biggest fan of the film, if the "wow" factor is there. This set has that....in spades. I would love to see a re-visit to the original Halloween done up in such a way. Boxed, and not bubbled. Maybe a re-sculpted Myers head to more closely resemble the look from the first flick, but the Loomis was already a masterpiece. So many folks missed out on the original DD Halloween release the first time around, and still others would love a revised headsculpt and the new packaging. I would scoop it up, and Halloween is hot (not that it ever cooled) right now with the new film forthcoming. Hint Hint, Martin. ;) ;) ;D ;D

That's the one, bro.  Except my version was not carded, but rather came in a BBP box similar to the William Shatner Bob Wilson/Don Carter figure.  The Rod figure also came with the same accessories (plastic newspaper & Mystic Seer) as the Shatner figure.  What's particularly cool is the back of the box which shows a few other figures that were never released (Maya the Cat Girl, Carney Santa Claus & the Clown from "Five Characters in Search of an Exit" episode).  Just a shame BBP/Entertainment Earth did not continue the line; they were excellent.

As for hints: Hmmmmnnn....I am not sure I should give any out.  :angel:


Oh who am I kidding ;D ;D ;).

Both small meals incorporate Ham. A new spin on some olde recipes. Using tried and tested successful ingredients, by a master chef extraordinaire. We might call him a maestro were we doing musical hints, instead of food related ones.

The Main course is inspired by Indian Cuisine, paired with subtle British tavern wine. Packing quite a kick, sure not to disappoint. Make sure you finish it, and don't peter out. Don't wanna make anyone mad at you after all.
I am told it t tastes like Chicken.

For dessert, something truly lavish.... sporting a French base with English toppings. Rich and delightful up top, sporting a dark base beneath. Sure to tempt the taste buds.

When both are unmasked, they will be sure to delight....with fright.

Stevie Wonder could see the hints here, fellas. But I had fun pizazzing the heck out of these for you. Don't forget to tip,lol. 8) 8) ;) ;) ;D :angel:

Sorry I can't post a picture but I finally managed to bag me an original Pennywise at the right price  ;D

I never thought I would own this due to the cost but I'm so happy to have him and as ever with these DD figures it looks amazing in hand.

The Main course is inspired by Indian Cuisine, paired with subtle British tavern wine. Packing quite a kick, sure not to disappoint. Make sure you finish it, and don't peter out. Don't wanna make anyone mad at you after all.
I am told it t tastes like Chicken.

For dessert, something truly lavish.... sporting a French base with English toppings. Rich and delightful up top, sporting a dark base beneath. Sure to tempt the taste buds.

When both are unmasked, they will be sure to delight....with fright.

Stevie Wonder could see the hints here, fellas.
Legend of 7 Golden Vampires 2-Pack & Yvonne Monlaur (Brides of Dracula)???  Gosh, I'm getting really bad at this!

Thanks for that, it was one figure that I really didn't think would ever be in my collection and even though the acid and double pack Pennywise figures are awesome this first release was an important one for me to get. Like I mentioned having it in hand really does make a difference and this is my favourite of the bunch and I think it's one of the best card backs as well, I always love the image that this one came with.

Happy days and also my other recent pic ups in the vintage section here means I've had quite the week!  ;D

Just received my Halloween bundle and I must say that I'm floored by both how fast they arrived and also the shear craftmanship!

These are an absolute work of art and DD just went to a new level. I love the new packaging for them as well as there's no need to remove them from their boxes as they display really well as they are and also don't take up much space.

One thing I thought worth mentioning is that if team DD use these boxes ever again it's probably worth putting a sheet of bubble wrap inside the box in between the window and figure. Mine arrived pretty much perfect except for a tiny nose rub (no problem at all though) on the witch child but some bubble wrap would protect this from happening I think. I'm sure it would be easy to do and hopefully everyone's will arrive with no problems (they are tied in well so there shouldn't be).

Well, I can't wait to get home and display these but they're such an amazing addition to my collection so thank you all involved once again, it's made my week  ;D

I just receive mine and unfortunately the shipping box and all contents were crushed. The figures are fine but the packaging is destroyed. This is a true bummer. If Martin doesnít have any replacement boxes the figures are pretty much worthless to me. I knew the new packaging would be a problem when it comes to them arriving in one piece from Thailand. Again, a major bummer!

That's really sad to hear and I feel your pain with this. What goes on with the people who handle these parcels?! Mine was all good fortunately but I'm sure something like this will also happen to me at some point as it's the way things seem to go.

Really sorry for you and hopefully Martin has a few spares knocking around.

I was fearful of the same thing, Jim. My items are usually all sorts of messed up. My Halloween 3's arrived safely. Unfortunately I didn't have them long. Getting a root canal with crummy insurance means making sacrifices. Have you contacted Martin about possibly obtaining a replacement box? He had talked about offering replacements at his cost awhile back.

Mail carriers even managed to mangle the clamshell for my Night Of The Werewolf figure. I can imagine figure boxes arriving undamaged would be problematic.

Didn't think there was much chance of a freakin' clamshell inside a shipping box getting badly dented...but there it was.  ::)

Martin has told me if he ever quits doing this it will be because of the USPS. He loses his shirt alot on fixing their errors. Eventually he is either going to have to raise prices to incorporate the costs of protecting against additional shipping contingencies that may arise, or offer replacements at his cost. he cannot keep paying the price for the USPS's terrible service and continue to stay afloat. I would gleefully jump at paying for a replacement box or for a shipping extra special upgrade with as many packages as I ahve had damaged from EVERYONE who sends me ANYTHING. USPS is worthy of being in Freddy Krueger's realm. It's a nightmare.

More damaged shipping!!! This  is just not on as its draining me both mentally and financially. I have always stood by my products and have always replaced when and where I could at my expense. I have been racking my brains all morning to try and remember the last time someone said" Post Office has done a number again, if you can replace it I will cover shipping".  Yes my responsibility to ensure you get a product in good condition but not my fault certain areas have idiotic Neanderthal, clumsy, clodden hooved, employees who don't give a monkeys stump for customer service. There has to be a point in time that this needs to be addressed and resolved. I have done some digging and it seems 85% of all damaged items are the same 5 or 6 addresses so the question has to be why? Why were these same addresses getting damaged items when I shipped from a US forwarder. Why are they still getting damaged items now? Why are these areas a maelstrom of damage to my parcels? Are my parcels the only ones getting trashed? Have the people at these addresses pissed off the PO or delivery guys so that they get a pleasure from performing ritualistic damage to the items they deliver? I have no answer at this time, all I have is the question WHY?
But what do I do? That is a bigger question. Everytime I send a replacement case or boxes, any profit I make on that figure is gone, never to be reclaimed. Do I  ban these addresses from purchasing future figures? My figures sell out and someone always misses out, so it wouldn't affect sales too much. Do I put terms and conditions on the order page that states DD is not responsible for any damage caused by the postal service? Do I force the customer to return the damaged item at their expense for replacements, as this is what Paypal would make them do? Do I charge certain addresses an extra $20 to $30 to use and ship extra strength, double boxed packaging? Do I cut the run to 30 but charge twice the price and make the figures more rare and valuable to those that still wish to buy and keep the cost in line with what most customizers would charge?  Do I raise prices for everyone to cover the costs of damage to those whose products are damaged regularly? Or, do i think 'Sod this crap. Enough is enough and stop completely, open a small refreshment stand by the beach and sit there with my dogs reading books? Sooner rather than later this needs to be addressed and questions answered if not for the financial side of things, then for my own sanity.

I know I have had more than a few things get beat up by the post office over the years....and not just things sent by DD. The USPS is, quite simply, just plain terrible. My actual "to the door" mail person is pretty good. When she runs her route. But what happens to items before things get to her, to bring to me, is anyone's guess.

Most of my items make it to me safely. But occasionally, I have had to let DD (and others) know if there has been damage. I have said before, I have no idea how we get these things shipping included from Thailand as cost effectively as we do. It costs me $13.00 to mail a mego figure from Ohio to California.

I think the best way to do things is if a box or clam shell is damaged, the customer can pay for a new one from DD. If I need a replacement box, I think  putting up like $10 or something, is ok. I realize that some might not want to. However, people need to realize DD is not NECA or some other huge company and they do the absolute best they can on the budget they have. Actually, I have said many times, I don't know how DD does it between the figures, custom cards and shipping. When it comes down to it, DD is obviously a company fueled by passion, not profit.

As someone who slings paint on a freelance basis for DD, I can tell you with absolute certainty....it's definitely a labor of love.  The sheer aggravation of keeping materials such as bodies, clamshells, and the like, in stock is one head ache of many.  Producing characters like Wasp Woman, Jourdan and Palance Draculas, The Hitcher, Captain Kronos, and all the other obscure creations no one has ever bothered to touch for decades should prove that.

Martin, I happen to agree that you should not be the one to absorb the cost of damage done by an inept USPS, and you should have a disclaimer for such on your site.  Perhaps you can provide an alternative shipping option at checkout for those customers that continually have problems with their local Post Offices.  I know firsthand that you have always been there for your customers, and that you do this for the love and passion you have for these characters and films; not for the profit.  But as we all understand, DD does need to remain profitable in order for its survival.  I certainly would not want to see DD shut down; DD is the best thing to happen for figure collectors in a very long time.

All good points here about either a section to pay for additional shipping when placing an order or paying for replacement boxes if damaged but I think we all agree that martin shouldn't be out of pocket in any way. One thing I did think of though was for the people who seem to always be having problems with their packages is it possible for them to contact their local post office/sorting office to complain? The fault seems to be coming form there and this doesn't seem to be a one off for these people so if it was me I would take it further with them. I'm sure the person who delivers your items to your doors would be able to point you in the right direction about who best to contact but this clearly seems to be the fault of the US shippers.

I can't think of any other solutions at this time but Martin isn't at any fault here so shouldn't have to lose out.

Some folks don't collect 1/6 and only mego scale. I am sure those folks will be the ones to gobble these up. Satiating the mego buyers is good business.

We at the UMA are only a small percentage of DD's fan base. Probably about 10-20% honestly. 

Gorgon will be the belle of the ball. She couldn't make a wave up on her own though.

I am sure we will eventually even see a 7 Golden Vampire Mego. One day. 

Got to think of more than just our little group here.  That being said; I anxiously await Gorgon.

I am working on the start of a wave here at the house to debut very soon. One that is sure to make a lot of folks here very happy. If you like B monsters. Who have never had figures in mego scale....and 3/4 of which have had no figures in any scale.  Stay tuned. :angel:

I thought the reason DD started making "Mego-style" 1/9th scale figures is because they could be made for less money to lower the price point. 1/6th seems to be the preferred scale according to the comments I've read. 1/6th Reptile and Phantom were available for years on the DD website up until not long ago for not much more than the Mego-style price.

So you're saying that most of DD's business is from people who don't use the DD website?

So you're saying that most of DD's business is from people who don't use the DD website?

Last question first: No, I am not. I am, however, saying most of DD's business simply isn't from us at the UMA. We at the UMA may prefer 1/6....but the world outside of the UMA apparently wants megos. Lots and lots of them.  ;)

The very fact that the 1/6 sat on DD's website for such a lengthy period shows the preference is clearly mego. if the megos had came first, they wouldn't have lingered on the website like the 1/6's have.

I doubt he sold 75 of each of each them before simply pulling them.

They probably under performed and he possibly even lost his shirt on them. Like The Karloff megos....that are still available. 

His newer 1/6, when and if he offers them....are obviously  not the price of his older ones.  So comparing a new $85 mego with a character who was done up, when costs to manufactur the figures were much cheaper, isn't really fair. How much was the last 1/6 figure priced at he offered? Carradine Dracula? I am sure it wasn't $105 shipped. :angel:

The rise form $80 to $85 shipped for megos isn't that much of a hike, and when the next (hopefully Kharis one day) 1/6 figure is released, I am sure it's going to reflect Martin's direct shipping model and the increased cost of 1/6 parts and bodies, yet sparse demand.

I don't have a problem with the new wave....because I don't collect everything DD does. I also know there are folks who want Reptile and Lom in their collections....but wouldn't buy a 1/6 figure if you paid them. There is literally a guy on DD's Facebook page who chides Martin with every release he offers....because they aren't all in 1/6, and he won't buy megos, even if he likes the character. People have odd hang ups,lol.

I think some people will not buy megos because they are not realistic  looking enough. Proportions are sometimes off and the head sculpts are sometimes not that accurate. However, I think it is best to take each figure on its own merit instead of dismissing the whole scale. Also, for those that think this, I will refer you to the Mego DD Twisty the clown.

Considering the variety of tastes there probably are many collectors who prefer the 1/9th (Mego). Most of the ones I've heard voice a preference prefer 1/6th. I figured the main reason for DD going "Mego" was the practicality of being able to make figures for less money so as to lower the cost to the customer and increase the chances to sell through on a given figure. That's an assumption, and may not be the case.

One reason people may have not been ordering the 1/6th Reptile and Phantom is that everyone who wanted one got one, at that time at least. I think another reason some of the 1/6th DD figures didn't sell well is that they weren't limited to a certain amount and numbered. That's a big deal to some collectors that want to be among the few to own a particular thing. I have no idea why the Karloff series still lingers on the website. I bought them and I'm happy to own them.

I prefer 1/6th scale in general but I judge each figure on it's own merits. DD have made some spectacular 1/9th scale figures over the years, as well as 1/6th. I enjoy displaying my DD Mego-styles and I'm glad I bought them when I could. I like the 1/6th scale figures even better, and it looks like those may be few and far between in the future so I'm glad I grabbed them when they were available.

I like both as well, and I would be most happy to purchase more in 1/6. Especially if he did Dr. Loomis in 1/6. Kharis the Mummy is the one I am presently cheerleading for, as I happen to know there is actually a chance of that one possibly happening.

I think a reason for the lacking sales of the Karloff line was character choices. I bet if he did The Ghoul and Mr Gray, they would sell out in one day. However, this is just speculation on my part.

Let me guess RJ MacReady from The Thing?  He has been prototyped too many times.

So, listen up kiddies, and don't be Creeps. There are Two new releases coming along rather nicely for next month's newsletter. Both are new territory that have been discussed for years. Better get them quick, almost as if your life depended on it.  Best keep the lights burning well into the night, and straight til dawn... so you don't get left in the Dark and miss out. Nothing to be Afraid of though if you are smart about it.  Shied away from food references this month and went straight for the hurt, Billy.  :angel: :angel:

If you don't guess these, I can't help it....I did my best. >:D

Clamshells and cards will still be used in certain cases. I asked Martin the same thing. Namely to finish off exisitng waves or series entries that were began with them. So there will be uniformity to the waves.

I did get the email on this release so thanks as ever to our DD leader for getting it out. It's another film that I haven't seen so It was a pass for me but it's certainly an interesting release with the scale of it and different hand posses. It looks like this is only the first of hopefully many from this partnership so I'm looking forward to seeing what else gets released and I'd also be curious to see this figure stood next to the regular Mego sized ones.

Besides the fact that I am unfamiliar with this film, I did not pick up this new 5-inch figure due to it's size.  Hopefully, this new venture will be a good one for Martin and DD...selling out the first figure is always a good start!  If Martin decides to make a Universal or Hammer figure in the 5-inch format, I may have to think twice about picking one up though.

It's not only the USPS. Its Fed Ex and UPS. Good there there are great sellers out there and people like Martin who go the extra mile to fix issues, even when it is not their fault at all.

Also, this whole insurance thing is almost worthless from a collector point of view. Insurance will not replace a damaged item that is a custom, vintage or antique. Some items cannot be replaced. I just want the item I paid for to be in the same condition it was purchased as.

Great job Anton with The Fly, I think I prefer this release to the original with all the detail in it although I really needed to complete my Romero wave this time around (his Zombie mates have been missing him  :D).

Flyboy arrived today and as I thought it's a fantastic end to the dead run! Really enjoyed collecting this series and a big thank you from me to all involved in this series, they're up there with the best of DD.  ;D

I was so close to pulling the trigger on The Fly one that was released at the same time but I can't have them all and finishing the dead series just had to take priority.

So onto next months releases then, looking forward to seeing the hints as they appear.

 I am not sure how to approach hints for February, but here goes.  One figure starts a new series. One is from a series already running. I don't wish to be a Critic of the new series' entry. It should be Choice....worthy of an Award even. Well worth the Price.  The other is cool, and will also B a big sell out. Big Time.

That's all I could come up with for creepy crawly hints for these two dastardly dudes. Watch your inboxes on (I believe) February 4th. 8)
Title: Re: THE 2017 DD CAFE MENU.
Post by: Palifan on January 21, 2019, 05:20:27 PM
These hints are even trickier than the the last ones......One release must be from the new B Movie series but I've no idea on the other.

Anyone got any thoughts?

on another note, I got my Return of the Fly today, and it came together great. Paints aren't too shabby either, if I do say so myself (**strains arm patting self on back**). :angel: :angel:

There will be no clues for whatever items are being offered on the March email/newsletter. I have been instructed no hints can be given. Top Secret.  So I won't be hinting around about anything until it's April. >:D >:D >:D


I was told a certain tana leaf drinker is on the planning  table for late 2019 though.  So that's a piece of lovely news straight from the Hill of the Seven Jackals. :angel:

Placed my order for both this AM. Having a Vincent Price figure from The Last Man on Earth is an interesting choice. Times like I wish I did own a mansion, so I could put each video release of a VP film next to its DD figure in a display case.

The doctor from Tarantula looks incredible. The first time I saw this movie, I was more freaked out by the doctor than the giant spider!
Title: Re: THE 2017 DD CAFE MENU.
Post by: Palifan on February 04, 2019, 04:53:15 PM
I must admit that I haven't seen either film but I'm happy to know there's a couple more things on my to see list  :D

Great work as ever and I can see the Vincent Price wave being a massive hit. I'm already more than excited about next months release though, this sounds like something very special and as I'm off to New Zealand to work in a few weeks I'm just praying that there's an internet link where I'm staying and that the email doesn't drop in the middle of the night. It sounds like something I'm really not going to want to miss.  :D

Looks like only 2 Creeps left. Thing sold out in 3 hours. I knew these would be exceptionally "hot".

The extra special piece DD hinted at, that is LICENSED, and being offered in collaboration with Pallbearer Press next week, is one that quite a few people here have been clamoring for.

Extremely niche and eclectic, and will also sell through quickly I would imagine.

Looks like the Last Man on Earth has started the beginnings of his global trek.  So--some early hints for next month. 

I will give you the Skinny, but let's keep it Under Wraps. Otherwise, it might be the firing Squad for me. The hints for the first were just given in sentences 2 and 3. As for the second, well the hints could make things a tad Hairy. Let's just say they will both have the Undying love of monster figure collectors the world over. :angel: :angel:

I will give you the Skinny, but let's keep it Under Wraps. Otherwise, it might be the firing Squad for me. The hints for the first were just given in sentences 2 and 3. As for the second, well the hints could make things a tad Hairy. Let's just say they will both have the Undying love of monster figure collectors the world over. :angel: :angel:
Monster Squad Mummy and Oliver Hammond (Undying Monster werewolf)!  Excellent!

Last Man on Earth arrived today. It's a beauty. I gave mine an extra set of "rubberized" hands that match the portraits paint, and hold the weapons better. I also added some to scale garlic bulbs and an ornate cross. All I need now is a gas mask,lol. It's one of Thompson's better Vinney likenesses, imho. I recommend this figure! get thee to ebay!
