    I did a custom Mummy once but it wasn't a rewrapped EMCE.

    Great custom Mummy, Brian. Glow monster hands, really work for me on this character. Are those just wrapped or attached bandages?

    I was lucky enough to find Creech, the Metaluna Mutant, and Phantom of the Opera on shelves. I swapped Phantom onto a Type S body, which enabled this excellent pose:

    They are strips of material wrapped around the body with some glue to hold them in place. Then dry brushed with some paint to help him look aged. It took forever to do but it came out pretty good.

    Brian, it was probably your Mummy then because I remember the person sharing the story had made it sound like it was a painstaking process and not some quick tailoring alteration. I blame my poor memory or my then mild, vested interest owning any EMCE Monsters at the time to properly to distinguish that yours wasn't an altered EMCE. Still, yours, of course, looks outstanding.

    My absolute favorite of the entire line was Lon Chaney's Phantom.

    If they were to do any more, the would have to include the Invisible Man, Lon Chaney's Hunchback, and then maybe one of the Mole People, the fourth would be a toss up as Jekyll & Hyde and the Fly were not Universal films. If they could go outside Universal, Jekyll & Hyde, the Fly, Nosferatu, and Lon Chaney's vampire from London After Midnight would be in the mix.

    Werewolf of London could be the fourth, or the Creature Walks Among Us.

    Still, my absolute favorite 8" line.
    The Phantom is just perfection.
