Great post !! I kept my collection of (mostly ) VXX FX Topstone recreations. I missed the "golden age" , buying most of mine during the last 5 years or so. I was lucky enough recently to get a  VXX Topstone Beatnik on Ebay . Darryl's stuff is great . I keep hoping that the masters come out of hiding , and spark a new interest in the Topstone masks .I believe that Ray is working on a book on the masks , so maybe that also might  revive interest .

Great videos, Ray! I now want to track down a modern Caveman; that sculpt looks great with a properly thick latex.

I subscribed to your YouTube channel so can't wait to see what else you come up. Thanks for sharing!

Love these videos! I know very little about Topstone so these are also great history lessons.

Great stuff Ray. These were the masks I could afford when I was a kid. Don Post masks were out of my reach as they were for most kids back in the day. I remember going to Thrifty drug stores with my parents and they would have a bin of Topstones out in October that was so much fun to rifle through. And the best part was taking one home. Mom didn't mind spending the $1.99 these things sold for. I always appreciated the tactile feel of a latex mask versus a vacuform and they could take a beating much better too. Hope you're still planning on doing a Topstone book. Keep up the great work!

Since Eric's about to pull the plug on this site, everyone is going to have to subscribe to my YouTube channel to see the rest of the videos. I'd like to post them at the UMA, but that site will not allow YouTube videos to play in the post. They just show up as URLs. I'm not going to bother posting them that way.
