Ooo! Very nice! I'm really tempted. They've got that Creature Walks mask coming, too!

Right.

I put that in a thread of its own.

Two good starts for costumes.  The bodies aren't all that complicated to clothe.  Too bad they aren't shipping sooner for people who want to construct life-sized figures for Halloween display.

No Mole hands, though.

Trick or Treat Studios produced this mask?

ToT's new MoleMan is awesome! It must be the first ever licensed version since Post Studios produced theirs.

No Mole hands, though.

The character's hands were so distinctive, it can't be long before ToTS looks into creating a pair.
The DPS versions are getting far too difficult to find anymore!

My dear wife, bless her heart, got me one for Christmas!

It's well sculpted with a menacing expression, cast thick enough to easily hold its shape
while on display, and more than big enough to wear compared to DP's version >

Very nice! Did you give your wife a kiss (with the mask on)?

I'd be much more interested in buying the Mole Man, if I thought there was a chance of them doing a Metaluna Mutant!

Mole Man has a receding scale line.  ;D

Great wife! I suppose of course that she herself couldn't resist a mask of such a handsome fellow.

The Mole People mask has much meaning to me, considering that it is the First Calendar Mask I ever touched!  ---and even had stuck on my head, as a child no less.  I would be tempted to paint the face that green colour seen on the original calendar mask ad in FM.   I would also have the pebbled area of the head flocked.  What a Great mask!

Superb present from an evidently superb Wife!

Loved the set up with the card stills, really set it off there for me.

The Moleman is a Creature close to my heart too, next to Gilly one of my faves designs (there's plenty more of course, but nowt tops Gilly).

Really nice sculpt on the mask & good cohesive colour choices used (that mocha brown base is lovely).

Now if only they'd make a glow version  8)

Enjoy Sir  ;)

Just got him in the mail today:  He is Terrific!  Immaculate paint job!  Thick enough!  And most important---no way to get this one stuck on my head!  Anyone who adores the original Calendar mask had better not let this slip  them by!   Even though he is painted up in a most supreme way, I might not afford myself the luxury of resisting the temptation to paint his face that green colour in his early FM advertisement rendition----as well as find a way to have his pebble head areas frocked  that   brown fuzziness like the original   One stunning mask indeed!

Wasn't the DPS version made from an original mold used to make them in the movie?

The Halloween Society infers that it was "adapted" from one of the original sculptures for the movie.  What that process was eludes me.

It was adapted from a movie mold in the same way Hunchaback was.  Clay press from the movie mold.  Some retooling and details added.   In Hunchbacks case most notably the teeth.
