Sep 04, 14 The Phantom of the Opera (1925)

Posted by in Silents

The Lon Chaney, Sr. Phantom of the Opera continues, even after a century, to amaze and enthrall us. This piece is about 1/5th scale and will dominate a shelf. Since this piece was hollow cast some areas were more fragile than others so great care was used in handling it; especially where the cape meets his pants. From Wikipedia The...

Posted by in Rare & Unusual

The Amazing Colossal Man is a favorite film of mine and I seem to watch it at least once a year. This diorama by X-O Facto and Tower of London was sculpted by Joe Laudati and captures the final moments of the monster as he grabs the high voltage wires of the electrical tower. Amongst him are a mild countryside with trees, a road,...

The building of this piece was straightforward with stains and washes to accentuate the detail. When it came to his...

May 29, 14 Inspector Clay from “Plan 9 From Outer Space” (1959)

Posted by in Rare & Unusual

This Resin From the Grave piece was made in 1994. The pieces had many offset seams and other mold imperfections that needed to be cleaned up. The leg fit to the body was uneven so a platform of plasticard was cut and inserted into the body to serve as a join for the legs. The legs were filled with plaster for stability. Tor Johnson...

Posted by in Hammer

This X-O Facto version of the Christopher Lee Mummy by Hammer Films was sculpted by Jeff Yagher. This sculpt is a classic image of a key scene when the mummy breaks through a window, was shot twice, and a spear jammed into his chest. Prior to this the mummy emerged from a muddy swamp giving rise to his muddy color. The Mummy (1959)...
