And that, my friend , perfectly demonstrates why so many of us anxiously await the release of the dvd. If you're going to learn how this "magic" is created, you must learn from a master "magician"! That describes this piece perfectly in my opinion - pure "magic"! This piece is just about the most amazing sculpture I've ever seen! Awesome work (magic) Mike!

That's amazing, dude. Big fan of the old school horror films, so this is ridiculously cool.

Almost begs for a companion Jack Pierce piece? Applying make-up perhaps ?

I think that was done as a kit. I think it looks great just as it is

True enough. It's an amazing sculpt (and finish) as a stand alone piece but it is one of the few 1:1 sculpts that I can think of (by any artist) that lends itself to interaction with a secondary figure. Damn, now that you mention it Vader, I wish I had that kit! Wasn't it a Thomas Kuntz sculpt ( for Janus Company)? Ah well, this is an incredible piece of work just as it is, agreed !

That's right. I think it was Kuntz. You're right about it being alive enough to be interactive. But I like the isolation of Karloff and his apparent contemplative state. It's great as it is. It's more art that just a representation.
