For the Halloween themed figures, how about 3 kids in the Silver Shamrock masks from "Halloween  III? You could get creative with the accessories.

 Thanks for the response guys it keeps me motivated.Any input would be greatly appreciated.

Color choices for the Alien sound great. When everyone gets off from work or out of bed in their respective areas fo the globe, I hope they start chiming in. I might have to have Ro-man too,lol.  As for the Without warning Alien...here are my thoughts on the neck. When it comes time to sculpt, reverse engineer the pattern on the Star Ace 1/6 Dracula. That way, it will be possible to move the head without messing up the "turtle neck" style suede armor wrap he wears at his shoulders, and will save you having to buy connector pieces.

  It would be great if more members joined in.I had a thought this morning about the fitting for the neck.I could possibly use silicone putty.This could be placed in the hollowed out head and placed on the neck of the figure once set it would move freely.

  Was thinking of doing this but not sure if Martin will eventually make them.Will make some generic ones as well.I was going to include a miniature of the 60's Glenn Strange Frankenstein bucket as one of the accessories and some resin Don Post masks.I'd like to keep the theme around 60's- 70's time period,great time to be a monster kid :).Any other vintage halloween/monster toys do you think would fit?

I know it's from the early 80's. However, I would love to see the clown doll from the original Poltergeist. Either 1/6 or mego would be great. Maybe even a small or full size prop doll. I have put the idea out there, but it has not happened, well, not as well as I think it could.

I have seen a replica 1:1 scale prop or 2, made of the character, but they just don't seem completely accurate.

  The 60's-70's statement was for the Halloween figures I want to make,I like that time period.

  A clown figure with two separate heads would be fun,evil and happy.Never say never. ;D

UMA members..You have a very talented artist that started this thread. Gab's, The Blob, limited edition pieces he made last year were amazing. He is going to be making some awesome monster toys of characters that hardly ever get made and some may never get made. Now is your chance to have some input. I can't believe there is not a ton of interest here.

I cannot believe how little that folks are willing to participate in/contribute to the forum this days. What is up with this? I know full well there are active members visiting as well as guests....no one seems to have much to share or say. :'( :'(

 Great selection of characters Richard.

 I was kinda hoping that more members would contribute and have some fun.Oh well on the bright side I'll probably just make copies  for members who contribute to this thread ,maybe a couple more for friends.I'll have more time to do more figures  :).I'm certainly not doing this for money,more for the fun of it and I want to see these in my collection.

  Anyway,I ordered some fur for Ro-man and some material for the Without Warning alien yesterday.Will make some armatures for the sculptures and start fabricating the Ro-man helmet today.I'm also working on two more DD which require a lot of work.Busy,Busy.

  Looking into it but no promises.I do have some 1/6 scale clam shells but I think Ro-man and the WW alien will be too big.
  Also working on some fun little items I'll include with the figures. :-X

The figures are the most important thing of course. Packaging is just a bonus. Really looking forward to Ro-Man. Finally going to get a figure from the best worst movie of all time. ;D
