Welcome October with the New Dr. Deadly™ Halloween Mask

Posted in General info on October 1, 2011 by Monster Scenes®

Here it is – the month to celebrate Halloween haunts! As you recall, in January of this year we unveiled the first-ever Monster Scenes Dr. Deadly Deluxe Halloween Mask. It comes to you from Trick or Treat Studios, the fresh new name in over-the-top, high-quality fear gear. There was no better studio to choose when it came to giving ol’ Doc Deadly his introduction to the Halloween faithful  – not to mention providing a first-time full-scale rendition of every modeler’s favorite medical miscreant!

Premier sculptor Justin Mabry used our own Jim Craig’s updated look at Deadly and rendered a startlingly life-like mask. From the oozing gash on his head to the wicked scar and the defunct orb, Dr. Deadly looks so real you’ll literally do a double-take. Mabry captures every detail, both within the sinister sculpt as well as in the startling paint scheme.

 

Another first-ever achievement to note is the exclusive full color mini-comic that cDr. Deadly exclusive mini-comic for Halloween maskomes with each mask. In it, you’ll discover the origin of Dr. Deadly, never before revealed until now. Naturally, we again turned our favorite artist, Jim Craig, loose on this one. It’s a graphic tale that’s not for the squeamish yet definitely not to be missed.

Now this mask with exclusive mini-comic is available to you, just in time for Halloween. Look for it a your favorite Halloween retailers including Halloweentown (Los Angeles, CA), Foy’s Halloween Stores (Fairborn, OH), Fantasy Costumes (Chicago, IL), Halloween Express Stores (nationwide), and Halloween Adventure (nationwide).

Optical illusion? Where do these stairs lead?

Posted in General info on April 5, 2011 by Monster Scenes®

Here’s a fun diversion – are the stairs depicted in this image facing inward or coming outward? How can you be sure?

This is similar to the classic Ambiguous Depth Illusion that pictures a staircase that appears to be rightside up…or is it upside down? Does it come out at us or extend inward, away from us?

No matter – it’s just a fun game of visual perception. What do you see from this image? Leave a Comment below and let us know.

No foolin’ – Monster Scenes Saber Tooth Rabbit, Feral Cat, and Skeleton are collector’s items!

Posted in General info on April 1, 2011 by Monster Scenes®

Sure, we love these three newest Monster Scenes kits and, to our delight, so do you. In fact, these compelling kits were so well liked that you folks gobbled ’em all up in record time. That’s right – the limited 1st edition release of the three kits are sold out.

Although it pains us to turn you away when you come shopping at the Gruesome Goodies Store  to get these kits (sorry – we’re fresh out of stock), we are happy to let you know that you can still find them at online retailers and some local hobby stores. But hurry – we’ve been told by our distribution channels that there’s rising demand for these kits.

Start your April hunt, then, by linking over to a few online retailers that still have some inventory left: MegaHobby.com, VCSHobbies.com, and AmokTime.com.  

So why are we so sure these kits have already achieved “collector’s item” status? We’ll let you in on a little secret:  you won’t be able to get them in this style again!! We’re working on the release of the next edition of these kits already but they will be different. You’ll love what you see in the next release but we strongly encourage the Monster Scenes faithful to snap up the first edition kits while you can.

Thank you for your ardent support of these new kits. Get yours now and get ready for even more exciting releases from the world of Monster Scenes by Dencomm. It’s gonna be fun!
