Celebrity Monster Collectors
« on: August 28, 2016, 02:02:14 AM »

I was watching a short YouTube video of ventriloguist Jeff Dunham seeing how his young twin sons would react to meeting Peanut for the first time. 

To my surprise, the video begins with an all-too-short glimpse into his love of monsters.

I sure would like to get a more extensive look at what he has.

Anyone know where we could see more - or maybe links to other celebrities' monster collections?

It must be nice to be rich.

I didn't know they made a life-sized Boris in the makeup chair.  I had seen the model, of course.

Looked like the Alfey Creature and looks like Mike Hill's Frankenstein.

I don't know if the chair comes with it? You may have to provide your own.

But is it a one of a kind or did he make more than one of those extraordinary figures?

Awesome, I always thought Mike Hill only did one off pieces.

I know Dunham has his own custom-made 66 Batmobile as well. That's why I hate him. :-)

Yeah, I have since seen that.

Where the heck do you drive something like that?  It wouldn't fit in any parking spot that I know of.  It would sure draw crowds.

He even had a small version built for "Bubba" for his "Minding the Monsters" Halloween special.

This explains a lot.  I was lucky enough to meet him after a show of his mainly in passing.  I had a Creature from the Black Lagoon and he showed interest in meeting and speaking with my wife and I and he even made a comment about how much he liked my shirt.  Friendly guy certainly deserves his successes. 
I'll have to look up this Batmobile
May you find your worth in the waking world

Glenn Danzig of the Misfits is know for having a large collection of toys and comics. Though there isn't too many photos of his collection.







He also has the goat mask prop from Hammer's the Devil Rides Out.

If you pause at the right time in this video you can see some of his monster stuff

How cool! My son used to love Jeff Dunham when he was little. I took him to one of his shows at the Nokia theater in LA and we have all of his DVD's. That is a Mike Hill Frankenstein.
