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".

Yeah, that guy on ebay is legit. He bought foam masters for three of the classic DP Tors back in 2012 when the entire legacy of DP was cast to the 4 winds. I bought a Pat Newman Tor off him and its pretty nice for the price. Clean pull, long neck, eyes and mouth untrimmed. The paint is not "Tharp quality" but your getting a good mask. Worth the money. I plan to buy his other Tors as well.

Oh, that's the guy selling the Classic Vampire! Someone showed one off on the HMA facebook page some time ago. This guy has a lot of stuff on Halloween-Mask.com, and eventually I found his Ebay store. His stuff looks absolutely incredible. That vampire remains near the top of my "must have" list.

Doh!

Interesting -- I've never seen the '94 Tor before. Favorite Tor line:

That "You Bet Your Life" clip was fun!

I remember this one issue of Fangoria from 1994, that had an article on Ed Wood(to coincide with the movie). There was a little interview with Ed Woods ex(the one played by Sarah Jessica Parker, I think), in which she jokingly recalled Tor Johnson breaking the toilet seat just by sitting on it when he would visit. She also mentioned that despite the fact that he was this big, scary pro wrestler, he was basically a giant teddy bear. A lot like Vader in that respect, I guess.

Good to see you posting videos again, jupiter! I have one of the Post 1976 Skulls. I'm the original owner but I bought it sometime in the early 80s after Halloween III came out. It's the oldest piece in my collection.



PS I really like that movie. It gets crapped on a lot but I think it's wicked fun.

'Excellent SKULL masks you've both got there, gents.
I bought DP's first glowing version back in 1977 but the
shadowed features were just airbrushed on ~



It may have looked more ghostly that way but I much
prefer the stark stippled look on yours. Thanks for the
new review, j2.  :D

Great Skull masks guys! I don't own a DP Skull but I do have the ToTS version. Justin Mabry did an amazing job of reproducing this classic mask.

Keep up the good work, jupiter!

Glenn, is the TOTS version somewhat small? I can wear my Skull--but just. Granted, I have a Bullwinkle-sized head (I literally take a 7 1/2 hat!).

My TOTS skull ripped past the very small hole when I tried it on and I think I have a normal size noggin.
