    Sad news again - RIP Fred Goodspeed

    I just received word through the customizer grapevine that Fred passed away recently due to Covid. Personally I had lost touch with Fred, but I recall him being humble and kind as well as being a great customizer. RIP Fred.

    What was his museum name? I don't know if I know who that is. It's always sad to lose a fellow customizer/collector. R.I.P.

    ahh really? RIP Fred. I used to call him the other BK. I got more than a few heads from him.

    Prior to learning to mold and cast myself, Fred was kind and gracious enough mold and cast several body parts for me during my earliest attempts to develop my own action figure bodies.

    Fred Goodspeed was always a consummate gentleman… always helpful, always polite, always a kind and encouraging word to offer about my work.

    I lost regular contact with Fred after he fell out of the molding/ casting game a few years back, forcing me to take it up myself. But we nevertheless remained social media friends, and I’d run across his posts every so often on my newsfeed.

    I am so terribly saddened to hear of Fred’s passing. The MEGO community has lost a very good man, a true comrade, and a genuine friend with his loss.

    I for one am eternally grateful to have corresponded with Fred Goodspeed. His assistance always proved to be so invaluable. My life and my work were all the richer for my brief association with him.

    Rest In Peace, brother Fred. You will be dearly missed and never forgotten. Godspeed Mr. Goodspeed 😢
