    I have a few bald/used barber mannequin heads to display my masks. They work perfectly.

    Well that doesn't show much dedication. A true horror fan would use actual severed heads.

    They do work really well, but even then it's good to pad them with plastic bags to retain the overall shape. Usually they sit pretty loosely on those heads. That being said, I've still had some masks start to deteriorate. When that happens it's a good idea to foam fill them if you get to them in time and use it as a display piece. Alternatively there's guys out there who can patch up a lot of these issues when they arise but it's often $$$.

    I currently have a Jason one I had to foam fill and need to find the time to address the problem areas so I can put the hock back on it and dress it up. Adult life! :p

    Sadly they didn't go all out on the base. Must be a cost thing. I don't know how else the guy that was with Sideshow and supervised good bases on Skeletor and Evil Lyn with the snake and lava base could turn in just a simple mountain base with some lava cracks. You would think we would see some reference to Snake Mountain. But I guess not. I probably would have added some arms too since they have so much chest showing.

    I still don't get these. But if they made a woman alien, I might get them.

    They have a bunch of these small horror figures coming out this year. I saw them all on Toyark today.

    I found this really cool costume store near me.....scored this badass mask for 15 bucks. I've since blackened out around the eyes with a sharpie on the manicin head under. Looks killer.

    I was right. Two days in and the only free points from Sideshow are from some kind of game contest. And even then you have to get all the questions right I think.

    No free money for me. And I didn't see much from Sideshow's Comic Con releases.

    Another sad thing with these limited collectibles and collectibles in general is with the pandemic and people at home, many of these have gone up in price. I guess it's good that Sideshow is remaking a lot of characters again. But still if you want an older piece, you'll have to pay more. At least for now.

    it’s a sellers market, for sure. I sold off a ton of my nonsense during the pandemic and was shocked by what I made and how quickly everything sold.
