'Great Bayshore Zombie, T_T. It almost looks "alive".  ???

'My biggest haul ever! The Universal Monster era had just ended at Post Studios
and 1977 ushered in an amazing line of original characters ~



Somehow I was able to save up enough money to buy these twelve at around the same time, perhaps on the same day ~

       

Except for the Vermillion Skull they're all first editions, likely from the premiere production runs ~

       

'No need to have anything custom refinished back in 1977. They all looked perfect straight from the factory ~

WOW What a super fabulous haul !  I can imagine how hard your must have worked to get the money to buy these beauties and how super excited and thrilled you were when you brought them home !   Love all of these pictures especially of the Hydroloid, TWolves and Bloody Werewolf, but really love them all.  Thanks for sharing Maskahuna !

Pete is amazing. I posted an interview with him on my web-site TheHauntedCinema.com

Here is my latest from The Devil's Workshop ... The Bayshore Zombie



Love that piece! Pete is really an artist in his prime. His new Big Daddy Roth pieces are incredible

Great masks 'huna! Love that Lee Dracula. One day I hope to score one. Did DP have to get a license from Hammer Studios or the Lee Estate for that mask?

It was exciting to see this return to the DP line although I would've preferred its original eyes.
The red skull masks were always more striking than the white ones, I thought. That must've been
a paint master I photographed back in 2000 before it shipped off to China for production reference ~

I kinda like the filled-in eyes. They add to the creep factor.

Great copies, fellers!

'Spectacular, Josh! It's hard to tell this master reissue from Pat Newman's original version.
I love the upswept eyebrows. 'Great pics, especially the one where it's looking with such
contempt at the production copy.

Yeah, the eyes/eyebrows are my favorite part. They add so much expression and character. The pics really don't do the paint justice. There are subtle blue highlights that really bring the piece to life.

He does seem to have a derisive attitude towards his production counterpart, who looks somewhat confused.
