Posted by in Modern Classics

Francis Ford Coppola produced his version of Frankenstein in 1994 and had Robert DeNiro star as the monster. His makeup was effectively captured in this 1/4th scale version released by the long gone company, Screamin’. This figure is vinyl which poses several potential problems. Over time, the vinyl will sag due to loss of...

Posted by in Rare & Unusual

The 1932 Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde film is know for its transformation scene of Jekyll into Hyde. These two 1/4th scale sculpts were produced by the amazing folks at Kit Kong and essentially mimic the two stars of the film. The likenesses are spot on and all paints were acrylics. The potion in Jekyll’s hand is a mix of...

Way back in the 1990s a company, Horizon, unfortunately long out of business, released a series of vinyl model kits based on characters from the Francis Ford Coppola ‘Dracula’ film. Seen briefly during the beginning of the film is Vlad all decked out in his red knight outfit (harder to see blood stains on red armor)....

Posted by in Rare & Unusual

This version of the Return of the Fly was made by the masters at Monsters in Motion. For his head “hairs” I used surgical thread (a little thicker than normal thread) and placed them individually on his head. I used short length of wire, also individually drilled and inserted, around his eyes. This means I drilled many,...

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...
