Pretty cool little ad from 1976 from House of Humor Novelty...I was 5 and some of you weren't even born yet...sigh. :oops: I'll take every mask in that catalog ad.

I love looking at vintage mask literature like that. It reminds me of what to keep an eye out for. A client of ours caught wind that I collect Halloween masks as well as other Halloween related stuff especially vintage. She asked me if I'd be interested in going through her deceased brother in law's Halloween stuff. He died young, only 41 years old. That means he was 4 in 1975. I'm pretty excited about this. I'll copy this pic, print it out and take it with me. Thanks for sharing. :D

Very cool. I have wanted one of those Gorn's forever and just missed my chance at getting one by literal hours last week. :(

Cool, thanks for sharing, you and I are the same age, sadly I never saw ads like these cause all my costumes were bought at Walgreens, which I now work for, or Thrifty's drug stores, and one other place called TG&Y ...Dean

That was the place for Don Post Studios masks in 1977 thru 1983 in Stillwater, Okla. Oh, man...I remember it like it was yesterday. They put all of the great DPS stuff on the top shelf so kids could to get to it. I remember trying on my first Darth Vader mask in 1978 at that store! I thought it was just COOL as hell that it was in 2 pieces. I also remember seeing the orange Pumpkinhead mask in 1982! That sucker was so bright it was ridiculous. They had them all and I didn't buy them...long sigh!

Was that the one on eBay or Danny's collection? I got the Gorn from Danny's collection...it should be here Monday! It's a Rubies Gorn but it was made by DPS from the original molds, like the other Star Trek masks I got recently.

LOL I love it TG&Y is where I got my KISS costumes 3 or 4 years in a row LOL and the majority of my star wars stuff.I can remember walking in one day and He Man just came out I was like what the hell is this and ended up getting Skeletor. I always liked the bad guys. I lived in a small town so a kirk would have never been in my stores but JAWS 2 was filmed here. Awesome ad

What's the difference between a DPS Gorn and a Rubies Gorn? I have a Gorn but I'm not sure which one it is. I have seen some copies that had glittered eyes. Mine do not.
