OMG, I'm so excited!!!
And then...

I especially like the Dracula figure. It makes me think of The Maltese Falcon. It's The Maltese Drac!

Not five hours later, as we approached Burbank from the North, Angie got a text sent by a mutual friend of ours trying to get in touch with me to report that he found a Frankenstein lamp and Dracula statue at a yard sale not one mile from my house.

Ok, I really dig the Teenage Frankenstein, but I can't afford the Amok Time figure, soooo, I made my own.  My own version of him, anyway.  I had an old Dollar General 12" army dude I had bought for 5 bucks laying around, so I went to work on him, carving his face up, adding hair, etc.  At least he's bigger & badder looking than the licensed product was, IMO.  Hope you like him!



A closer look...



Closer still...  LOOK OUT!

I've had these for quite awhile.  My brother-in-law bought them for me a long time ago.  I just recently dug them out of my Halloween tub.  Thought you maniacs would get a kick ot of them.

Very cool Bro. Having sculpted a few Mego type heads myself I appreciate the time that goes into this stuff. 8)

That's a very good Teenage Frankenstein and a cute rampaging Bigfoot.  The backgrounds are a nice touch.

Very cool Bro. Having sculpted a few Mego type heads myself I appreciate the time that goes into this stuff. 8)

I didn't model the head from scratch.  I just took a heated exacto blade (a dangerous thing in an unknown primate's hands) and carved & manipulated the existing head and added paint & hair.  I wish I could sculpt like you.  I've been trying, but most of the time, I'm all thumbs (at least thy're opposable,  ;D)!

Thanks again, everyone!

And Ray, my wife said my bigfoot was cute, too  :-[...
