The colors are vibrant and it's from that popular movie but I never wanted one. The face is just too generic.
Now if it looked more like Nightowl's King Halloween, you'd have yourself a sale ~



Still, I always enjoy your vids, jupiter2. Keep 'em coming until the last gasp and rattle!

Great video jupiter 2! I only have the ToTS DP Skull at this point. I may pick up the other 2 somewhere down the line for completions sake as I love H3.

Which is also available from ToTS (same sculpt) at a more wallet friendly price.



Also from ToTS is Rotting Pumpkin that looks somewhat like the H3 mask during the "decomposing scene" sculpted by Neal Kennemore.


Doh!

Nice video, jupiter! I'm actually a big fan of the movie, but never picked up the pumpkin mask. I do have a skull -- but an earlier copy, not the glowing one from the movie release.

I was contemplating getting a TOTS pumpkin, but I saw one in person and it somehow seems off to me. Too small, or the paint isn't as nicely done as the Post. Something...

Here's another mask I've never featured before, so rare it's practically non-existent.
It's called Thebes Warrior, a Fantasy Faces offering from the late 1970s ~



Mike LeValley and Rick Stratton comprised Fantasy Faces Studio and usually
sculpted FFS characters together, one taking over after the other.



Thebes Warrior was originally conceived as wearing a battle helmet
which would've helped conceal its only debit: that buttertop split in its cranium.
I'll bet it would've looked great with applied hair too ~

Reminds me of this guy from Conan the Destroyer. Of course the mask being from the 70's would have been first.

Now that I think about it, all "Fantasy Faces" masks had sculpturally interesting ears ~





Get a load of this one ~

CreatureRevenge did a great job on your Dr Phibes mask, Gory Glenn.
Congratulations on scoring that last copy. It's a good one.

Speaking of creepy dead guys who just won't stay dead and buried,
I present one of the greatest corpse props ever ~



I bought it from Death Studios back in the 1980s and kept it ever since ~

I must say, I'm loving that zombie scene! Despite the monsters popularity, it seems like no one appreciates a good "back from the grave" zombie these days. It's a shame.

2006 Don Post Studios "Wrestler"



It's great to see you posting in the HMA again, jupiter! I was starting to wonder whether or not some of us were coming back post-January.

Great choice for the vid, as well! The Tor Johnson mask is one of my favorites. Despite the incredibly simple design, it manages to be iconic and versatile. Kinda like the Don Post Skull, I guess. I have a friend who's a DJ, and this mask even made an appearance in a video he made for one of his tracks. We still don't know what that segment is from!

Another fine review, jupiter! The Post Tor was always fun, but for me, the superior sculpt comes from Death Studios. I picked one up a couple of years ago:

Nice review jupiter2! I found this thread started by Maskahuna where HMA member CreepingDead posted some picks of the various Tor incarnations including "The Wrestler" and "The Cell Mate".

Just out of curiosity, did you ever see the deluxe sculpt DPS did in '94? It's a pretty good likeness.

Hey Glenn! Good to see you back in the mix again!

You might have solved a mystery for me Another Symbiote. I was looking at this Tor mask on eBay that claims it's made from the original DPS foam master. I wasn't sure about it because it didn't look like the DPS Tor mask I was used to seeing with the scar. After seeing the pic you posted I'm inclined to believe that it is this '94 sculpt. I really like the paint scheme on this one as it looks like Tor coming out of the grave from "Plan 9 from Outer Space".
