Thanks Hepcat! I finally had a chance to take a few more photo's, so here they are.

The first two are a plastic Creature mask.





This is my Remco mini Dracula...



And my Remco mini Phantom...



And this is the Mr Hyde plaster bust from the 1977 Gabriel Monster Machine...



And this is my favorite of this batch of photo's- The plaster Frankenstein bust from the 1977 Gabriel Monster
Machine...

Thanks Hep!

Gabriel, the same company that made Lone Ranger and Tonto dolls in the '70's made the Monster Machine- It was
a set of five molds and some plaster casting material called "Muck". You could pour the muck into the mold and put it in the caster to set to make plaster busts of five monsters; Frankenstein's monster, Bigfoot, Hornagor, Galaxogg, and
a bust with Dr Jekyll on one side and Mr Hyde on the other. There is a picture of it here...

And here's the box back where you can see the other monsters...

Awesome Mono! I remember the Gabriel monster casting machine from when i was a kid. I think my cousins had it.
Crazy am I? We'll see if I'm crazy or not!

Thanks RedKing!

I just took a few photo's of my AHI Frankenstein. Here they are, hope you like them...









I'm working on some full body shots of him and some more AHI's that I'll post soon, too.

More awesome work, Monolith! I especially like the first and third shots. The third one really looks like a life-size actor in costume and makeup, rather than a little figure.

They are art gallery material, that's for sure! What a beautiful way to incorporate toys into wall art! I can imagine whole rooms decorated with these framed photos. They are so very lovely to look at!

Thanks Holdingcoat! I try to bring them to life as much as I can.

That latest photo of The Creature has such motion! He could be swimming through the depths of the psychedelic Technicolor Lagoon.

I'm in awe at the results Monolith achieves with just very basic technology.

Thanks Hepcat! Some of them take two to two and a half hours to work on, but I have fun doing it. I'm glad you guys like them. Here's one of an AHI Dracula.



And here's an AHI Wolfman.
