Nice review! Too bad the mask is thin -- I do like that sculpt and paint. And it definitely looks better with hair. The old glue sort of works on yours; it adds to the decaying look of it.

Thank you to everyone for contributing and making this a great, fun thread.
Almost a year ago, when I had the sense that this forum was in trouble, I decided to do my best to help keep the lights on. In the end, unfortunately, it wasn't enough.
But I'm proud of this thread, and that we were able to create one of the most viewed and replied-to threads in the history of this forum, at a time when it should have been impossible. Thank you all for helping achieve that.
I will keep making my videos, so please subscribe to my YouTube channel if you want to find my newest videos after the HMA goes dark.
Again - a sincere thank you to everyone.

My guess is you'll probably reach 10,000 views before the plug gets pulled next month!

Thanks for the latest review, jupiter2. "Dry Bones" is a creepy cool ghoul. I prefer it to
the more cartoonish designs that flooded the mask market back then.

'Wanted to corner one of my favorite indie masks today: The Mayhem Monster by
Deathstalker Studios ~



There's no record of when I first got it but believe it was around 2005.



You can still see me wearing it at Halloween parties, one of the few wearable
masks left in my collection. On one occasion, we even baked it a cake ~

Cool mask but there's hardly any difference between Mayhem Monster and the Shock Monster outside of the missing patch of flesh.

'True enough, Gory Glenn. "Mayhem Monster" makes no bones about
being a tribute mask.

Now, on to today's obscurity ~



The ALLOYTA by Savage Eye. I paid $39.98 for this long forgotten
character back in the 1970s and am fairly certain I'm the only one
amongst you who ever did ~



I know nothing about the concept behind it but there were two empty sockets
in its toothless upper lip which it appears were meant to accommodate tusks ~



Its accompanying hands are repurposed Savage Eye Creature hands,
painted to match ~



Paint ultimately proved the ALLOYTA's undoing: all were finished
in a gold tint which contains elements that react destructively with
latex rubber. It's unlikely that any gold originals survived into the '80s
so archive my pics. You probably won't see a Savage Eye ALLOYTA mask
anywhere else.

Great post, Maskahuna! It's great seeing such rare mask.
Sorry for the lack of videos lately. I've been in a very sad mood over the HMA closing down.

Well, it's not down yet and I intend to run it right into the ground with fun new posts!

Nope, it's not gone yet and we may as well enjoy the last of it!  Even for those of us who are too busy to do much posting, it has been a pleasure to look in on.  Many thanks to Eric and to all who have participated throughout the years!

Never heard of the band, but that is a great mask. Also, another fine review, jupiter!

'Quite a diverse group of characters you're assembling, jupiter2.
This one's pretty scary-lookin' ... and front man in a band, no less!
My guess is they don't specialize in love songs and ballads.
