    great forum.

    i just started collecting, mostly replica helmets, masks and weapons.


    obviously nowhere near as awesome as the collections that you guys have, but its a start.

    Quick question, when will i be able to use The Junkyard? is it based on the amount of time that i'm a member or number of posts or something? sorry i'm new.

    Thanks!

    Where did you get the Donnie Darko mask? Looks like one done by a member here several years back.

    You just started collecting... yet you have more masks and helmets than I do... and in superb quality I might add... do you mind if I grumble for a second.

    Welcome and cool collection!

    zorg, thanks for the info! much appreciated!
    i'm reaaaally looking for a sauron helmet, terminator plasma rifle and kroenen mask, but can't post yet

    agent, as for the darko mask, i'm not sure of the exact origins...as the story goes i guess a few copies were made from the original mold for gifts to the production, someone contacted a special effects artist friend of mine that had access to one of the original pieces and wanted my friend to mold it and make a paper mache copy for a costume party......he said sure, pulled a really nice silicone/fiberglass matrix mold off of the original, gave her back the original and paper mache copy, and kept the mold.....a bout a year back i was visiting him and i pulled 3 copies, one for my collection, and the other 2 i have to use for trades for other props

    i just went to a hardware store and bought some steel hooks (probably 3" total length, probably 1/8" thick) and some epoxy putty (propoxy, plummers putty, etc)

    with some pliers i unbent the hooks slighty (so they were more L shaped than hook shaped)

    gently sanded the back side of the 2 highest points on the helmets (the little horn shaped things at the top) and put a small amount of the mixed epoxy putty on there and blended it into the helmet a little bit (this is just to thicken up that area of the helmet slightly) then i took a 1/8" drill bit (or whatever diameter your hook is) and drilled just a tiny bit into that epoxy(not actually drilling into the mask material) then i possitioned the 2 hooks in the 2 holes i just made, and held it up to the wall and pressed the threaded end of the hooks into the wall to leave scratches where the hooks will go in, then i drilled the holes in the wall, cranked in the hooks, and hung the helmets

    thanks for the kind words on the collection!
    i also have a mac11 from Blade
    a copy of the skeleton leg johnny dep used to paddle his coffin/boat in pirates 2,
    davey jones key,
    hellraiser puzzle box

    a crappy warped copy of the morita rifle from starship troopers
    ghostbusters proton pack
