84, 85, 86 Don Post Studios 'The Mask'

Postby Sheriff Brackett » Fri Jun 15, 2012 7:16 pm



I've been working on getting this set of masks for a while. I finally got the 86 in the mail today
to complete the set.

While the 84 is a direct cast of the Kirk mask, the 85 was an original sculpt (based off the Kirk
mask) by Neil Surges and the 86 was a retool of Neil's sculpt. You can tell from variations of
"The Mask" sold from the late 80s to the mid 90s that a few different retools/touch ups were
done to the mask year after year. It's amazing to me still that mass produced masks released
26 years ago are still better looking feature-wise than many of the masks popular today.

That's a great line up! And they all look like they're in pristine condition.

Those masks are proof that Don Post can make a great mass production Myers mask, they just choose not to anymore.

Cool lineup. Glad I came around to see those, and always right when I think you got rid of a mask, I see it replaced by a better copy on those shelves of death.

Oh, and no need to thank me.
