    I've always wanted a nice Myers mask but was unwilling to throw the hundreds of bucks that the indie produced Myers masks go for and the cheap mass produced Don Post mask suck bad.

    That's all changed now!

    Trick or Treat Studios
    is now putting out a Myers mask based on Halloween II in order to get around the Halloween licence held by Don post and the thing looks good!

    60 bucks gets you this-

    Justin Mabry sculpted it, right? He is a very talented guy. I use to own one of his Jason "RAW" masks from his nightowlpro website.

    All I can say is FINALLY! Very glad to see this coming out, I need a Myers mask bad. Not too crazy about the hair but I'm sure that can be remedied.

    That's the best news I've heard in a long time. I faced the same dilemma and bought a substandard mask just for Halloween. Looks like those days are gone!

    Holy cow. This is gorgeous. Darken the hair a bit I think you can get away with a good looking H1.

    I think I'll be picking this up when I can.

    I think that they will come out this July.
    What are the differences between the H1 and the H2 masks?
    They are the same mask, right?

    Such an incredible release for all in the hobby who have waited for so many years! I never believed a licensed Myers mask could stand up to the quality and accuracy of the independently produced - and very pricey - replicas.
    I am very happy to see this and THANK YOU for posting!!

    :eek Finally! After all these years! :D

    :confused What are the chances these will all get bought up by some putz and put up on ebay for double or triple that price as soon as they go on sale? :angry

    The price is pretty staggeringly low - and I am still scratching my head that no one tried getting a Halloween II license until now! What an amazing story!

    It's basically a reissue of one of Justins Nightowl "LUNATIC" Myers masks. If it is indeed going to be $60 I for one will jump on it.

    I'm listening to the radio interview right now. Very cool.
    Definately going to have to pre-order this and I am absolutely floored that not only is it screen accurate, but under $100!
    This is a prime example of a true fan, with passion, putting out a product that is a labor of love.
    Some good points are made obout Don Post in the interview...

    I don't know if this can be answered here but has it ever been confirmed whether or not the mouth of the mask was open or not? It sort of bothers me to think that all the Shatner masks made had that slight droop in the mouth.

    I'm unsure if they just had once costume for the original movie (I highly doubt it) but I recall a few pics and shots in the movie (both 1 and 2) where the mouth is shown to be apart instead of one whole piece. I always accounted that for the reason as to why the mask seemed to always shift and look slightly different from scene to scene; a mouth with separated lips.

    I will be able to get these When they get stocked. Trick or treat studios are knocking it out of the park with Quality. One of the only mass produced companies where their paint matches the photo's.

    They are also doing the Syngenor mask, that was inspired by Gigers work, and sculpted by Bill Malone, out of Bills original movie mold from Scared to death.

    I will also be able to get that one!

    I contacted the company inquiring about it and got and email from Chris Zephro, the president, yesterday. This is what it said:

    "You'll be able to order it off our website any day now, I'm just waiting for Universal to approve the URL"




    So, gang. Any day now.

    :lol The Nightowl LUNATIC sculpt that this mask is based off is HALLOWEEN II hence the hair all matted down. You could however style the hair to match H1 if you like. The actual HERO mask was the same mask in both Halloween and Halloween II. Its the styling of the hair that determines which look you are going for. Blood Tears is H2.

    Does anyone know off hand if Trick Or Treat takes PayPal??
    I called Chris the other day and left a message thanking him, on behalf of our community, for stepping up to the plate for this project - it still amazes me that after all these years of Don Post offering sub-par renditions of the mask, no one else thought to check into licensing the mask from Halloween II.

    Wow! That looks great! I have been collecting Shatner/Kirk Halloween masks for along time now and this one looks great at any price! (y)thumbsup

    I have several versions from Nightowl, Mask Maker Productions and others that I've sunk a lot of coin into but now almost anyone can get an affordable one. Thats cool news indeed! :cool

    I'll be adding one to my collection for sure!:thumbsup

    There is some talk over at michael-myers.net as to weather a fully licensed, screen-accuarate mask replica will in any way affect the indy masks and collectors.
    One person even took this licensed mask as a bad thing, stating that having an independent mask will no longer allow you to "stand out" in the crowd of crappy masks.
    This is somewhat accurate I believe as we all know that being an RPF member, you are exposed to more legit looking costume and prop items than what you find in the costume store in October.
    I can uderstand that feeling you get when it looks like you won't be so special anymore now that an affordable, accurate mask is hitting store shelves.
    Though I don't know much at all about the mask collecting community, I do believe that many of the fine Myers mask replicas out there will retain their value among that community - and it IS a very GOOD thing that we are getting this item.
    It's been a long time coming and a great sigh of relief for everyone in this hobby who has wanted one for so many years...

    I really don't think this mask will ruin the custom fan made base of buyers. They all know what is what and that their stuff will still be superior. What this mask will do is satisfy those who would want a nice mask but couldn't justify paying hundreds of dollars for a custom.

    I just wish I could buy one. My wife is terrified of the mask! Last halloween we were at Walmart, a cheap Meyers mask was sitting at the end of an aisle. She made a wide berth just to go around it, covering her eyes the whole time. My wife would never allow it.:cry

    The other random masks that they sell are pretty cool too, especially the names.

    "Surf Kook" "Gluten Freak" "Albino Ghoul" "Bloated Bob"

    Click on any of them, and there's a cool story that goes along with them!

    I don't think my NightmareMan78 or Psycho or Warlock or the dozen or so others that I have will lose value. But then I'm not looking to sell them either. They will be in thier display cases untill I drop and they start shoveling the dirt in. With the price that I have paid for them I would not think of wearing them anyway. I just think its great that an afforable good looking mask will be available. Now at this price I will be able to wear it to our Halloween party at work next year. All of the others have been in thier display case from when they were purchased. I used to visit MichaelMyers.net quite a lot. It's a cool site although they don't seem to like MMP that much over there. I have several of thier Myers masks and like them a lot. :thumbsup

    As posted on M-M.net by the president of Trick Or Treat Studios:
    "okay here it comes, both masks will be available for pre-order at 5pm PST today."
    So I think that's 8pm for us on the East Coast.
    Super excited!
