I've never owned one of those '82 versions but have a great portrait of someone else's.
This is the first chance I've had to use it. Thanks for the review of an excellent mask, j2.

That's a great copy, jupiter -- and I love the two-toned hair. Looks brand new!

If you're out of ideas for videos, would love to see you review that vintage Frank in the background (screen right). I don't recall the maker, but I'm 90% sure that's the one my brother bought back in the '70s. I distinctly remember the raised stitches on the face!

Thank you, guys.
Doh! - I think the one you are referring to is the one in this video?
I apologize for the terrible lighting, it's really, really bad. I may need a do-over on that!

That's the one -- thanks for the trip down memory lane, jupiter!!

I'll bet yours is from the '70s. My memory of the one that we had around 1974 was also green. I remember playing with the bolts by pressing them inside out, then watching them pop back into place. Simpler times...

Definitely my favorite Topstone Frank. I used to have a VXX copy.

Thanks to everyone for hanging in there!
Hard to believe there are almost 20,000 views on this thread at the time of this post, and a bit of a mini-milestone - we have made it to Collection Corner video #60:

By the way - I don't know if anyone else is having trouble logging in, and getting an error message. I managed to log in by typing a search term in the search box on the main page, logging in after clicking the search button and being prompted to, and the login worked from there.

Terrific review, jupiter -- that's a really well built mask. Love the separate jaw.

Had no problem logging on.

'Outstanding vid, j2 ... and the mask equally so. Those horns are insane!
While wearing it at Maskfest, don't forget to duck at doorways.

Although never a fan of that cartoon series "The Smurfs", I've held an inexplicable
but seldom indulged fondness for masks depicting blue-faced wizards with white beards.
The only one I recall ever owning was The Wizened Master, an independent creation from
1981. Its whereabouts are long forgotten now and there remains but scant photo coverage
of it in my archive ~



I've since resisted acquiring any such characters, mainly because they don't really fit in with the
general theme of my collection (which is of course monsters). However, I would make an
exception if a 1982 DP MERLIN ever materialized at a realistic price ~



Until then, I'll be singing the holiday blues. Have a Happy Thanksgiving, everyone.

Happy Thanksgiving to you as well! And to everyone on the HMA.

I have always loved that Merlin, and would love to find one someday.
