Planet of the Golems!
« on: March 22, 2008, 08:26:44 PM »
Or is it THE  APE-EM!

Whatever.

On another thread a few of you asked about these figures.

The first is a Golem, won on ebay, that is DAMNED PERFECT!








Don't know anything about it.

The other is a GALEN done by my pal, Taylor Schultz (he made that Dr. Shocker figure I recently posted)

I really like that Golem.  Isn't that a big resin kit?  I thought it was.

Hey Dan,

I believe Rainer E. (Nightmares in plastic) said that Golem kit was one of his.

That's right - he was one of my first releases in 2003.
Sculpted by Thomas Oppen it close to two feet.
It debuted at Fall Chiller 2002 with a diffrent headsculpt and 6 casts- later retooled.
Seems yours had been modified around the arms.
Real cool paint job you have there, congrats!

Thanks, Rainer, it is wonderful. As you can see on the foot there it came broken, but we did a quick fix. I think it's just fantastic.

That Golem is just incredible! So cool to see a Paul Wegener figure out there, haha!

Oh jeez, why is it no Rainer/Oppen GOLEM ever appeared in my Christmas stocking?  It is magnificent, guys.  Wegener from head to well-repaired toe!
