I had no idea they did that latex cover -- and I own it!

Thanks for the reminder, Glenn.

That's a terrific sculpt. I never heard of these guys before but jumped onto their site. This is my favorite:

That is a nice mask. I've been eye balling their Dr. Phibes mask for a while. They make a nice licensed Phantom too.

Man, that's a terrific piece -- it really does look wooden!

I tried watching Krampus but found the humor in it pretty bad. Maybe I'll finish it for Christmas.

I've always loved the concept and design of Krampus
but find them all deeply disturbing, including this one.
'Makes me wonder if it left the tip of that broken horn
embedded in someone's gut! Thanks for the fun review,
jupiter2, just in time for the holiday season. I'll be mailing
out Krampus-themed Christmas cards starting next month.

Nice review jupiter2! I have the Krampus mask by ToTS that was sculpted by Pete Infelise and was originally sold as a Devil's Workshop piece before ToTS produced it. It looks like ToTS no longer offers this mask as it's no longer on their web site.

Here's a pic from an old post of mine.



I really dig the mask they've done for the movie version. I've seen a production copy up close and they really do look this good. Something about the creepy old man look that really sells it for me.

Both really interesting takes on the Krampus character, Gory Glenn!

I applaud them for their use of vacuform, but otherwise, that's kind of cheesy. And yes, they did get the endoskull side wrong:

Still, I always like your reviews, jupiter!

Fun mask jupiter2. Near the end Don Post put out some crazy masks construction wise. I recently picked up a 2008 G. Howie Burns (bottom left page below, thanks Pete-I) that was part of their "Foam Faces" line. Like the Terminator mask it is a half mask but it is made of thick foam with a latex covering and plastic eye inserts. The back half being made of a nylon cloth hood with a netted wig on top of that. Your vacuform with latex on top reminded me of that odd joining of different materials. I'll post some pics of it when I have time. Enjoyed the video Jupiter2. As I've said before I like the variety of masks that you cover. Not everything has to be ultra rare and expensive to be fun.

You've hit on a potentially interesting idea here, jupiter2.
We should all pull some long forgotten mask out of storage
and post about it.

Another great vid, Jupiter! I've been considering picking this one up for quite a while, as it's a fine example of Ghoulish before the creative dip. They seemed to be playing with this general theme at the time, because I remember a couple of similar masks. Alien Host was one of them. The other was called Inner Evil, or From Within...something like that.
