About two months ago I was reading up on my Horror Hound when a little announcement caught my eye. It wasn’t so much the title, but the pictures that really reeled me in. I really haven’t seen anything noteworthy from Post Studios since the mid 90’s and that is even questionable, because I was 11 at the time. But the masks that are set to released/have been released are actually quite stunning.
The first set of masks to really catch my eye were the Killer Klowns From Outer Space set. There are four in the set and from what I see are damn near screen accurate. Though Bump In The Night’s line does look more detailed (but that also comes with a larger price tag).
The next two were that of Mohawk from Gremlins 2 and the little bald monster from Ghoulies (I’m not sure of his real name). Mohawk has great detail and looks like it would make a great display piece . Wearing it might look okay but I don’t see it pulling off a good look, unless you had the hands to match and a suit (no picture could be found at this time, just ad pics). The Ghoulies mask is another perfect display piece – the detail for a mass produced mask is very good. I would say that this is the first time in many years that the masks actually look like the characters they are meant to portray.
The last little thing to grab me was the re-release of The Witch, The Pumpkin and The Skull from Halloween III. There will be a deluxe limited edition and a mass produced edition. I’m not 100% on the release date for these nor have I seen a picture of the quality. We will have to wait until they get closer to the release date to find out any more information.
I hope they look this good!
Indeed they have been doing some great work
But I yet want to see the new myers mask being worn
That’s very exciting! I’d love to have a set of officially licensed Don Post Silver Shamrock Masks!! 😀
Hopefully they resolved the paint issues with the Killer Klown masks. I returned mine because the paint was cracking and chipping off with any movement of the mask and watching the boards, it’s clear that this is not an isolated incident. Hopefully they will get this resolved and I will pick them up next year.
I read this post earlier today, then this evening I went out to Halloween Express here in Dayton, Ohio and saw the Killer Klowns masks. They actually weren’t that bad, they seem like a pretty good mass produced mask. Didn’t much care though for the $64.99 price tag that they each had on them.
I did look around and even asked about the Halloween 3 trio, but they didn’t have them yet.
Well. I don’t know about all you other Halloween movie MASK fans out there, but myself, I’m getting a little tired of hearing b.s. talk about the Don Post 2012 re-released Halloween 3 season of the witch masks. I find it very ODD that everyone says that the release date is Aug2012??? And that they’ll be SHIPPED Aug2012?? And even SELLERS are taking PRE-ORDERS for these masks, but the one question still remains?? WHEN THE HELL ARE THESE MASKS GOING TO BE IN?? Aug has COME AND GONE!!!! Also. How are sellers so 100% that they come with SilverShamrock tags on them, if they can’t even find out from the PMG warehouse as to when theyll be receiving them?? It’s odd because people are selling merchandise that they know VERY LITTLE ABOUT on masks that are not even here yet and they CAN’T even give a simple answer as to WHEN THEY WILL BE RECEIVING THEM, to their costumers??? So why doesn’t someone?? ANYONE try putting the ACTUAL RELEASE DATE down. If your a seller. YOU SHOULD KNOW THIS!!! So. If anyone out there knows this official date?? Please post it on this site. It would GREATLY be appreciated by ALL OF US DIE HARD COLLECTORS!! I like the pictures. But I would rather them in my possession. We’ve waited LONG ENOUGH!!!
