I poster this at the UMA also:  Without trying to be a stick in the mud... it is a misconception to call the Topstone masks I produced 'recasts'. With the exception of a few of the very early Shock Monster masks, they were all made from the original master copies. A recast would be something that was molded from a production mask. I call them re-issues.  I have seen this posted more then once here & there so just wanted to clear that up...thanks...D

Another Great video Ray.

My apologies Darrell. You are 100% correct. Recasts are typically frowned upon in our hobby and it was a disservice to call your work that. Let me rephrase "I had a chance to purchase the VXX reissue and I regret not picking it up now."  ;)

Excellent installment Ray! You hit the nail on the head. This was my hands down favorite Topstone mask as a kid. I had a chance to purchase the VXX recast and I regret not picking it up now. Great job!

The eyebrows really do sell it. The production copy eyebrows cover up so much of the furled forehead cancelling out a lot of the sculpts expression. Excellent score Josh! Congrats!

'Spectacular, Josh! It's hard to tell this master reissue from Pat Newman's original version.
I love the upswept eyebrows. 'Great pics, especially the one where it's looking with such
contempt at the production copy.

Yeah, the eyes/eyebrows are my favorite part. They add so much expression and character. The pics really don't do the paint justice. There are subtle blue highlights that really bring the piece to life.

He does seem to have a derisive attitude towards his production counterpart, who looks somewhat confused.
