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.

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

Quick question: how did you mount those Predator helmets?
Dec 14, 2007, 5:01 PM - Re: new to RPF
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
