Thread: Need Help: Boris Karloff

    Huh? Need Help: Boris Karloff

    I need a ReMego head of Boris Karloff. I tried to make one using a Frankenstein Monster but it didn't turn out. I have though about trying to use the Batman 66 Alfred as a stand in ( I have used that head more that I can count). Does anybody have any suggestions?

    I've often been tempted to nab Doc Mego's "Old Man" Mummy head and spackle in the wrinkles, reshape the nose, etc. Fair bit of work involved, I guess.

    Wanted to do Mr. Wong, Detective and Fu Manchu. Waiting on the latter until I can find a decent Myrna Loy lookalike!

    I want one too. he'd be a great guest villain on Batman 66 in my fantasy land casting. Always wanted him as Ra's. I may have to settle for Peter Cushing tho.

    I've always been disappointed that Sideshow didn't do Hjalmar Poelzig, Countess Zaleska, and Dynamo Dan.

    I'm also shocked there hasn't been an 8 inch Vincent Price yet. I feel like Mego MIGHT do one in their Legends line, but who knows at this point. I'd love a basic Karloff figure to go with A&C Mr Hyde, or any of his other famous roles.

    The closet to Vincent Price was Batman 66 Egghead. I have redone that head to do other VP figures but the head itself is a little plump around the face:

    After I brought this up during Svengoolie somebody sent me these pics of Boris action figure:

    The Mord is $150 and up while the 12 inch Karloff figure is out of print & not on ebay. But looking at old man Karloof and then Batman 66 Alfred with his glasses they look very close. Just a little repaint is needed.

    I was just recently on ebay and I remember seeing someone selling custom head sculpts in an all gray color, and I believe they had a Vincent Price sculpt.

    I remember seeing someone made a custom A&C Hyde by using the Diamond Select model, making a mold of it, and upsizing. Kinda surprised nobody's done that with the alternate Karloff head included with that set. BrentzDolz occasionally does Vincent Price characters, and he just did Rondo Hatton (although I'd prefer a removable hat and different clothes).
