Sorry if this has already been discussed. Just saw these on ebay. Here's the Mummy. Also saw a Frank & Dracula:

Yeah. I've seen them.  They created a Frankenstein, Creature and now the Mummy.  They look pretty decent.  I couldn't find any links to post from ebay but they show up every couple of weeks.

Other than that, i don't know much about them.

These are from Mojo Resin out of the Chicago area I believe. He does make some very nice original resin kits and a number of them in the smaller 120mm scale. He is often affiliated with Jimmy Flintstone and they've shared booths at a number of shows. However, in the past Mojo earned a reputation as a recaster of other peoples kits which has put him on the outs with many a hard core garage kit fan.

Thanks for the info.  I doubt I would have bought these but I definitely won't now that I know that.

Those posts are a year old. I did see a Creature mini Aurora a couple of days ago.

 It's not rumor, it's true. Please don't support recasters.

OK, I've avoided commenting on this until now, as I've worked with Larry on some kit projects -- and  I like Larry -- but the fact is, he has unfortunately done a certain amount of recasting of others' kits.  It's the subject of much heated discussion on several of the model kit boards -- and a shame, really, since his own line of original kits has plenty of cool stuff in it.  No rumor -- fact.

Since I have no reason to disbelieve Terry and he seems sure of his facts, I don't see any need for further debate on the subject.

Wow, well I guess a kangaroo court is the order of the day. It's interesting that some of the people on those other web boards  like Needful Things and XO Facto have done and are still doing recasts. I guess it just depends on who you believe. It's interesting that nobdy ever brings up the theft of intellectual property in the garage kit hobby. Which everyone who produces kits is involved in. But I guess that doesnt matter.
