That BSS Gorilla is one of their better masks although it needs more teeth. I got used to the DPS versions
which have whole mouthfuls of them. 'Great review and catalog cutaways, jupiter2, and congrats to vader45
on scoring one of Distortions' more disturbing designs. Do you suppose that seller meant to write "Ed Edmunds"?

Doh!

Hard to believe that's 40 years old -- great shape! I wonder why they didn't cast it in black latex, though, rather than paint it afterwards...? Of course, the TOTS Kong is also painted so maybe it's cheaper that way.

Thank you. I cought that as well. It should be Ed Edmunds! Lol.

I'm shocked I got a MOTM for only $30. I've been collecting but not posting on this forum. That will change!

And I love seeing your old mask photos!

Amazing Gorilla 'Huna! Congrats! I'll bring him a banana next time I'm over.  ;)

I just picked up this nice Lon Chaney Jr. Kharis Mummy display mask by an artist named Scott Doring. The Chaney Mummy was always my favorite Mummy as a monster kid.

Fantastic mask! I have all of the. Uni monsters in some mask form or another except Mummy and Wolfy. How much did your Chaney Mummy rob your wallet for?

Jason Hammond has a sexy Karloff mummy at an exellent price for an indie piece that I've had my eye on since I purchased the Haunted Mask!

'Scary cool scores, vader45 and GoryGlenn. It looks like they're made of rancid butter! 'Great grim attitude on the Kharis.

Bubonic has arrived! This mask is worth hell of a lot more then $30! It's thick and very well painted. It has the reminiscent of their old vintage masks but with the upside of being fresher latex!

Thank you to all!

I ordered Nosferatu from DarkSide last night and I am eye balling his deluxe Wolfie. It's really cheap considering the amount of hair on it! I'm not fond of the black streaks in the hair and the dark nose. I'ma request it closer to the Lon Chaney look.

Forgot to post this sooner. Here is one I recieved a few weeks ago, the new wearable Verne Langdon Zombie, copy  #21. And I'm holding the original, non-wearable VL Zombie recast (before he was shipped off to the new owner)





And just in case any of you guys are hardcore Zombie fans, here are some side by side pics of the original, small sized re-cast and the new wearable recast, so you can see the difference.

It's a shame that we must sometimes resort to recasting to get the masks we want
but, what the hell, I like your pics, Josh.
