Mario Kirner's Collection Goes Up For Auction

All eras must come to an end. Mario's entire collection -- the biggest of any Friday the 13th collection in the world -- is going up for auction at Propstore on November 3-6. I might try to grab something, but with the prices we're seeing lately, I don't hold out much hope.I guess as a consolation prize, it looks like I'll forever remain the only American to have seen Mario's whole collection in person. It was an honor I'll never forget.

Here's a photo Propstore shared of a part 6 mask Mario owns, probably the most detailed photo of the mask ever taken. Note the base coat popping through the chipped paint in the chevron.

Darb Designz Uber Jason Mask

Nice comparison shot here with a movie mold blank (black). Can't get closer than that in a fan sculpt. Get one at Darb Designz.

Full Color Scan of Production Part 7 Head

 

I sold this piece recently, but got a full color scan of the whole head first. Eventually I'd like to combine this cranial scan with scans from the MMI mold of the face, teeth and neck and maybe produce a limited run super faithful part 7 bust. The only movie mold part 7 bust, the SSN New Blood, had a reproduced cranium that isn't quite exact to the original. But for now it's just something to sit on.

A Freddy vs Jason Mask Movie Mask

 

Note: this last one is one of the best pictures you'll ever see of the strap rig. Appears to be either a lady's belt or purse straps that were pulled apart and weathered.

Jacques Plante with an Original Fibrosport

This photo, from the blog Puckstruck, shows Jacques Plante, creator of the original goaltender mask later recast and modified for use in Friday the 13th Part III, with one of his creations on the face of a young player in 1970. Though the basic shape is the same, this particular youth model had a different arrangement of vent holes. The mask that later became an iconic symbol of horror was produced by Plante's company between 1969 and 1976.

New Fan Film "Vengeance 2" Using One of My Pam Heads

 

You can see in the new trailer for Vengeance 2 that they used one of my copies of the screen-used Mrs. Voorhees head, with some modifications to the neck to remove the stand and flatten the base so it sits on its own. This one looks interesting and pretty FX heavy. They even set an actor on fire here, which is pretty hardcore for a fan film. Check out the trailer here.

This might be your only chance to own a HLM. There are only a dozen or so out there and I haven't seen one come up for sale in nearly a decade.
