Re: An Open Letter to Universal Pictures (reply)
Admittedly, I really don’t have high hopes for this project. To put it in perspective, I was so excited when I saw the initial ILM test footage for the Frankenstein CGI movie, many years ago. Then I read a bit further in the article and...

I lived in Florida 25 years and have yet to find La Mirada; however, I did make a bumpersticker to commemorate it:

Re: Best Audio Commentaries / Worst Audio Commentaries (reply)
In my opinion, while Tom Weaver's commentary for Creature from the Black Lagoon was very good; it is almost criminal that Universal didn't get Ben Chapman, Ricou Browning and Julia Adams to do at least an alternate commentary track for...

I realize that I'm in the minority, but I LOVE the Kharis Mummy films and watch them every chance I get! I consider him the Granddaddy of The Walking Dead!

Franken-Stein: Custom Universal Monster Beer Stein (topic)
First I created the Godzil-Lamp, now I just completed the Franken-Stein (okay, it actually has a group of monsters). I shamelessly based this design on the beautiful Star Wars steins of the mid 90’s (right down to the etched logo on the...

Re: The Return of Godzilla/Godzilla 1985 - Will we ever see a US release? (reply)
I don't know what the status of that film's release is, but I can't wait to see it, because I love that suit!

Re: Norman Bridwell (reply)
I just read about Bridwell's passing. Although Clifford may be what he is most remembered for, I will always consider "How to Care for Your Monster" as his masterpiece. It was my favorite book as a kid! Sad that he hasn't done another...

Re: GODZIL-LAMP!!!  (reply)
In fact, this lamp is still sitting on my son’s dresser, and does get used every day. While some of his friends who come over do recognize the character of Godzilla, none have any idea about the model and its significance. Anyway, what...

Re: GODZIL-LAMP!!!  (reply)
The reports of my disappearance have been greatly exagerated! I will try to put together instructions and artwork for how I made the lamp. Does anyone know how to post (relatively) hi-def material to this thread?

Re: Show off your replicas and reproductions (reply)
This plaque was a long time coming. While I had it in the back of my mind for many years, I wasn’t able to find most of the components straight off the shelf. So, in the end, I pretty much built the whole thing from the ground up....

When I first read it, I thought they said "UltraViolent" copy, and was more than a little bit confused.

Re: Universal Monster Puzzles by Golden (reply)
Here it is, in case you ever wondered what the Mummy’s Crypt puzzle actually looked like. I finally built it. This has to win the Rondo Award for “The most potentially cool Mummy collectible, completely crap-ified by marketing”. It’s...

Re: Drinking glasses (reply)
It worked!!!     I was finally able to get some high quality scans of the monster placemats, which I was able to tweak and warp back into their original shape (because the glasses are tapered, you need a slight arc). After printing out...
