Pharaoh’s Encounter

Jul 07, 15 Pharaoh’s Encounter

Posted by in Universal

This diorama, Pharaoh’s Encounter, was released by Monsters in Motion. I have always loved mummy movies and this diorama is sort of an amagamation of the Universal Studios’ Mummy’s Hand and the Mummy’s Tomb with the archaeologist encountering the Lon Chaney, Jr. mummy. The figures are 1/8th scale which makes...

Jun 18, 15 Creature from the Black Lagoon (1954)

Posted by in Universal

This Creature From the Black Lagoon, done by the wonderful folks at KitKong Model Mansion, is a towering monster of over 17 inches in height and appears to be about 1/5th scale. The base is an inspired effort that captures the creature in his grotto lair. There were a few mold seam lines that needed blending in on the...

Posted by in Universal

This Jeff Yagher sculpted piece was released by Resin Crypt and is a superb rendition of Lon Chaney as the Wolf Man. The juxtaposition of the figure with the tree elevates this from just another Wolf Man into an eye-catching diorama. The build up was straightforward. However, the tree roots needed to be covered and extended into...

Apr 20, 15 Talos from Jason and the Argonauts (1963)

Posted by in Harryhausen

This diorama by X-O Facto was a straightforward build. Talos comes with two heads, one looking straightforward and the second looking to the left, which is the one I chose to have him look at the two instigators. These two figures are tiny, about 1.5 cm tall, but are in scale to the bronze figure of Talos. To establish the bronze...

I’ve always wanted to say, “release the Kraken” and actually have it come true. Since that is likely not going to happen the next best thing is this diorama by Joe Laudati and released by Monsters in Motion. The build was straightforward with no surprises. I had to break out those 0000 brushes to get at those tiny...

Posted by in Rare & Unusual

Vincent Price mostly played characters in his films and not necessarily made-up monsters so it is a treat to get another version of the master in one of his interesting roles, that of Fortunato in the fourth of the “Corman-Poe” cycle of films, Tales of Terror. This sculpt, by Jeff Yagher and released by X-O Facto/Tower...

Posted by in Rare & Unusual

As a young adolescent when I saw Attack of the 50 Foot Woman at the theater my hormones were indeed raging at the interesting possibilities of such an imposing female. Sculpted by Joe Laudati and released by Monsters in Motion this diorama masterfully depicts a key scene from the film when the giant star grabs her two-timing...

Posted by in Silents

The robot that started it all is Maria from the classic 1926 silent film, Metropolis. This diorama produced by Amazing Figure Modeler showcases Maria with the Metropolis skyline and futuristic machinery. The paint scheme was very simple. After base coating Maria she was covered with a couple light coats of spray chrome. After base...
