Nice review, jupiter. I've never seen the source movie, but do like that sculpt. Truth be told, however, I prefer the Distortions Unlimited version. It seems to have tighter details and a better paint job.

Some of my favorite masks are Malonian but I've never actually owned a SYNGENOR.
It's just too easy seeing them in everyone else's collections! 'Excellent vid, jupiter2. Thanks!

However, I would make an
exception if a 1982 DP MERLIN ever materialized at a realistic price ~

the blue Merlin is one of my favorites DPs from that era. Great sculpt, awesome hair and it looks really neat in blue.

Here's a mask I've never featured before ... you'll soon see why.
I had ordered it direct from Post Studios way back in 1977.
At that time, their TIMBERWOLF character was available
only in grey and white but I really wanted to see one in black.
They initially balked at my request, saying they'd need to formulate
a custom paint scheme so I asked instead if they'd just lay black
over a grey. What I got was a weird hybrid: a grey Timberwolf,
haired in the early style of a white Timberwolf but with black fibre!



They were nice to accommodate me but I should've listened to them.
The colors/styles clashed too much so I tried peeling the muzzle hair off.
It didn't really help ~



In the end, the mask got released back into the wild. I can't remember where.



It was worth the experiment but Don Post Studios always knows best.
Their TIMBERWOLF series looks great just as it is ~

Great story, 'huna! I had no idea that DP would take custom requests back then. Did they charge extra for a new paint job?

That is a interesting story and mask! The color combo really does give it a much different look than the stock versions.
I don't remember hearing of a custom request from Don Post - it sure would be a rare mask!
