My copy remains exactly as pictured above. There's been no customizing.
MadMen FX's FRANKENSTEIN is an interesting take on the grand old monster,
looks sufficiently menacing although I personally wouldn't go so far as to
call it "a likeness". Rezman's is about as good as that version can possibly look ~

Great post 'huna! When I heard the thunder outside at my place I immediately thought of Frankenstein. Twisted minds think alike or something like that.  ;D Dig the Frankenstein by MadMen FX! I'm sure you're tired of owning that piece so I'll be by to pick it up.  :o ;)

EDIT: Found an interesting post on the MadMen FX Frank on the UMA site. Is your copy the one you re-haired as the post indicates?

MASS PRODUCED HALLOWEEN MASKS / Re: Trick or Treat Studios 2019 Catalog
« Last post by Josh on February 01, 2019, 11:06:12 PM »
Great looking catalog as usual. Love the Evil Dead stuff, only the book and knife are new, but they are killing it with that series. I really like the ROTLD, but I think they all need repaint to really make them pop. That series looks pretty flat with the production paint jobs. The Creepshow pieces are awesome. I know its from last year, but Justin really crushed it with that Dead Nate. Glad to see a nice 2017 Pennywise, I'll get that for my son. Had to buy him the Rubies (I think) mask last year. Big surprise for me are those Eyes Wide Shut masks, not really something I expected to see. Have to get one in case I ever wrangle an invite to Bohemian Grove LOL. Not sure I can resist Roger the Dogman.

I guess they just gave up trying to hair the White Zombie mask like the old catalog photos and just replaced the photo with the crap hair job they have been shipping that  mask with. Surprised to see Kong in there, someone told me that license lapses, I guess not. Gorn mask is awesome, would love to build a costume around that. Iron Maiden masks all look great, probably will only buy Aces High and Book of Souls.

I was also shocked to see The Worst in there. I'd looked at the action figures several times but was never interested enough to buy them. I love that Batula and Robot Reaper. Cool to see Savini licensed masks, but I'm underwhelmed by the designs. seem a bit generic. I have no idea why anyone would buy a Death Studios mask from TOT, I can't imagine they will be the same quality as Jeff does. But anything that gets his work exposure is worth it I suppose.

I tried last year to get a Vertigo deluxe in time for Halloween, but no luck. I'll have to jump on it sooner this year. I love that mask.

Really good looking catalog. I just wish they could get them in stores. Spirits never has anything worth picking up.

I'm shocked that you guys have such great copies, the rubber being so thin and all. Both of yours look brand new.

Always appreciate the new videos, jupiter!

'Great vid, fun cutaways, jupiter2. After being featured in vintage magazine ads for years, it was
sad to see the classic Ghoul demoted to those nameless catalogue assortments later on.
In the 1960s, we had a variety store called Newberry's that wheeled out big wire bins full of
Topstone masks every Halloween. I have dim memories of owning an original Ghoul back then
but have no photos to prove it. They were the only rubber masks that kids like us could afford.



I wasn't to score another until 2004 through the generosity of fellow collector Evil Wilhelm ~



I later had it repainted by Deathstalker Studios to exhibit at conventions ~

Well, I happen to like Mike Myers...

I'm most impressed by the ornaments, but would LOVE to see some Uni Monsters again!

Wow, lots of great stuff in there. The "Walking Dead" masks are incredible. 'Glad to see my
old favorites back this year: "Funhouse" Gunther, Kong, Bubba the Scarecrow, Beast of
Blood (a GoryGlenn favorite too). What's going on with LeGendre though? (p.37) Hairwork
looked so much better in last year's catalogue. Yeah, I dig the wall decor although Frankenstein
is conspicuous by his absence. Does it say anywhere how big they are?
