Thanks for that Franktastic round-up of Savage Eye Frankenstein masks, GoryGlenn.
That 2018 version looks alive .. ALIVE!

As to the Forum Creature, Rubie's Costumes and Forum have both released deluxe Creature masks
which are excellent. Recasts of the 1954 movie mold originals also come up for sale occasionally,
both of which I've had for many years ~

     

Creature masks have probably cost me more money than any other character in my collection.
The mere thought of spending another dime on one makes me shudder.

Those both look great! The Forum mask that I have and others I've seen have the gills painted like the pic below which isn't nearly as nice as your examples but for $50 it's a great mask.



I corrected my post on the SE Frank masks. The latest version came out in 2017 rather than 2018. Whoops.  :P

'Fun to see that old familiar face again. I never found out until it was years out of production
that BGT was supposed to be a resurrected vampire. Thanks for that fine review, jupiter2.

I just wanted to post a quick note to mention that today is the two year anniversary of the Collection Corner thread! (and they said we wouldn't last)
Thank you all for your contributions and to everyone, both those that post, and those that browse, for helping to keep this thread and this forum alive!

Nice vid jupiter2. You're lucky that your Chinese DP Retro masks are surviving well. I may have posted this before but they have a nasty reputation for melting. The theory is that brass or copper spigots were used for pouring the latex and that contaminates the latex. I was gifted a DP Retro Mummy 5000 BC by Dr. Shocker that has gone to his final grave due to this issue and HMA member Doh! had a DP Traditional Werewolf that did the same thing and Maskahuna has a DP Demon that was headed that way but he foam filled it in time to save it. He advised me to do the same with my Mummy but I didn't and now he's gone.  :'(  I'd advise checking any Chinese DP masks you own periodically just in case.

Doh!

Congrats on the milestone, jupiter!

Glenn is right: I had a werewolf melt on me after only about 3 years of ownership. It was an excellent mask, too! Over the years, I also had melting issues with a Michael Myers, Leatherface, and Greedo. I sure hope that TOTS is using better latex!

I don't think there's anything to worry about with ToTS. They're made in Mexico and the melting problem is specific to Chinese made masks during that DP time period to my knowledge.

Wanted to share this cool Madmen FX "Strange Monster" mask. He's been re-haired and foam filled with acrylic eyes inserted by the best, Maskahuna! Pics by Maskahuna. I take possession of this bad boy this weekend. Thank you my friend, I'm very excited! You've exceeded all my expectations! He looks terrorific!

Love the histories behind your videos, jupiter. And yeah, this was totally ripped off from the unicorn mask!
