Wow, that looks great! How many copies did you order, Glenn...?

I wonder where the eye holes are? Not apparent from the photos -- assuming that's of the actual mask and not just a screencap.

I've never really collected on Hammer's horrors but this one might be worth bucking that trend.
It has an aspect of menace I don't recall seeing in other versions. I met its sculptor at a local
convention once; nice young fellow. If you buy a copy, Gory Glenn, bring it over here with you
that I may revel up close in its crumbly magnificence.

LOL! I posted in their FB group asking about the eyes. I suspect their sculpted in but hopefully I'll find out for sure if they reply.

I have the excellent Carol Hicks version which I posted about here:

But I will probably pick up the ToTS version as well especially at that price point. I'm a sucker for classic monsters especially when they're Frankenstein Monsters or Mummies. I will be happy to bring my copy over for you to gasp in horror at Maskahuna!  :o ;D

Thinking of pulling the trigger on this one,too bad you need to wait till August/September for the actual mask.

Confirmed by the sculptor Jasper Anderson, the eyes are sculpted in.
