Trog (1970)

Posted by in Harryhausen

To many of us the name, Ray Harryhausen, brings many fond memories. Even later in his career with such films as Sindbad and the Eye of the Tiger Harryhausen can still capture that magic with his stop motion creations. The creature of the Troglodyte from that film is effectively captured here by the gang at Monsters in Motion. This...

Mighty Joe Young (1949)

Oct 06, 15 Mighty Joe Young (1949)

Posted by in Harryhausen

Mighty Joe Young was a straightforward build. It is a solid piece of resin so it is quite hefty. No base came with the kit so a wood base was cut with a jigsaw and coated with sculptamold and textured. After drying the surface was painted. Dried plant material was dipped into matte medium, patted dry, and placed next to the dirt...

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 Harryhausen

This diorama ‘playset’ by Michael Parks is a very rare kit with very few copies made. Since this is so rare a copy of the box art is included. This diorama kit was designed to resemble those Marx playsets of long ago though anyone who would want to actually play with the 7th Voyage playset should get his medications...

3 Ghouls from Sinbad and the Eye of the Tiger (1977)

Sep 29, 14 3 Ghouls from Sinbad and the Eye of the Tiger (1977)

Posted by in Harryhausen

To me it is difficult to get enough Ray Harryhausen. These 3 ghouls from his film, Sinbad and the Eye of the Tiger, appear early in the film and represent a frightening array of demons to battle. Each has his own weapon and are spawned from a firey pit. The build of each ghoul was relatively straightforward. Their eyes were painted...
