'Outstanding vid, j2 ... and the mask equally so. Those horns are insane!
While wearing it at Maskfest, don't forget to duck at doorways.

Terrific review, jupiter -- that's a really well built mask. Love the separate jaw.

Had no problem logging on.

By the way - I don't know if anyone else is having trouble logging in, and getting an error message. I managed to log in by typing a search term in the search box on the main page, logging in after clicking the search button and being prompted to, and the login worked from there.

Thanks to everyone for hanging in there!
Hard to believe there are almost 20,000 views on this thread at the time of this post, and a bit of a mini-milestone - we have made it to Collection Corner video #60:

2017 Zagone Studios "Overlord" - featuring Tony Zagone

Thanks for your reply Josh.
Facebook allows access to a much larger community since once your signed up you have access to a ton of sub-groups. It also acts as an aggregator by filtering the posts and responses from all the disparate groups through your personal feed. So, I can see posts from all the mask groups I'm a member of, the VHS groups, the comic book groups, etc all just by logging on and scrolling down.

However, this is also its biggest weakness. Posts get buried pretty quickly as new posts are created that push them down. The format is also not very conducive to long threads with dozens of response. The Collection Corner thread could never exist on FB, for example. FB is also no good for archiving and categorizing threads like the forum does.

I think it boils down to what you want to get out of a social media experience. If you want to reach the largest audience immediately with a short, tightly focused post then FB is the way to go. If you want to initiate a detailed conversation with a smaller, more interest-focused groups that may take days or weeks to unfold then the forum is best for that.
I'm not on Facebook so I don't know what the attraction is to posting on that site compared to here.It just seemed to have happened very quickly that this place became a ghost town and only a few of us ghosts are still here. I do see that there are people registering here but don't know if it goes through to become a member.
Still limping along,need new members to pick up the slack.

I think what we need is the old members to come back once in a while. A lot of the HMA vets are on Instagram and FB posting regularly. If we could get just one or two posts per week from former members still active on social media this place would look alive again.

Kind of late on this one, Happy Halloween to the HMA faithful. Great display,  Huna, as always. Love seeing those Distortions Nightmares. I didn't dress up, meant to. I was gonna do a '78 General Zod because I have about the same hairline now as Terrance Stamp had then and I was gonna get my beard trimmed to match and all that, but just never got it going. Took the kids out trick or treating. It rained all week, up to about 5pm Halloween night so there were few trick or treaters out. Decoarted the yard, looked pretty good.

Ahh... thanks. I don't "need" another mask, but always have admired the Mutant.
