Another great review, jupiter. I really like that sculpt, and the paint is nicely done as well. It was also clever of them to make the seam in the back just another one of his stitches.

Thanks for keeping these up!

'Fun review, jupiter2. I enjoyed your cutaways to catalogue imagery. I hear you
about "the potato syndrome". The catalogue samples are usually master castings
and general contours are the first things to go once production begins. Even one
generation down can make a difference.
I don't recall seeing this or most any of DP's latter-day characters in any local shops.
Where do you buy copies of these masks you review?

Thank you!

Maskahuna - I bought most of these over the years on eBay. I opened my eBay account in 1999, and there was a time when I would try to buy any Don Post mask with the tag, as long as I didn't already have it.
There are certainly many DP masks from the mid-90's to mid-2000's that I have never seen copies of, and probably never will. Maybe some were never even produced, I'm not sure.

Very good video. I love how professional these videos are, they really get my "I wants" churned up.

I recently added these 2 incredible masks from The Devil's Workshop.

I ordered TheBrain Dead Brute straight from Pete - As seen on the cover of Weird Mysteries #5 from June 1953







Next up is The Ghoul from his 2010 Famous Monsters Cover project.

that Brain Dead Brute is an incredible piece. One of Pete's masterpieces for sure. He did a Santa version of that I wanted so bad but didn't have the scratch.

I love the Santa version! I wish he'd done more of the Famous Monsters covers.

It's cool where he draws his ispiration from. There is a ton of old horror comics, monster mags, etc...

Great scores Todd! Devil's Workshop produces some incredible stuff. I love the way Pete puts a psychedelic twist on a bunch of old favorites with all the crazy colors!
