The silent 1927 Paul Leni film, The Cat & the Canary, has an interesting protagonist. Captured here by the folks at Crimson Pool Productions is an accurate 1/4th scale bust of the “cat” in the film.

Posted by in Universal

Most resin figures in the Garage Kit area are 1/6th scale. After a while these do take up a lot of shelf space.

The good news is these take up little shelf space and due to their smaller size one would...
