Talk about happy surprises, Distinctive Dummies drops this bomb on me one week before Christmas. Being a lover of all things Naschy, I ordered one before I put on pants that morning.
Distinctive Dummies are proud to announce its first two releases for 2015.
First up we have Paul Naschy, the legendary Spanish actor and who has played a Werewolf more times than anyone. I am happy give you Waldemar Daninsky from Werewolf vs Vampire woman, AKA Werewolf Shadow. This figure is also the debut sculpt for DD by Ron Gearing. Ron is a great talent and believe me, I have seen what else he has in store and all I can say is awesome! Also on this we have a new artist designing the cards, Doc Boucher, whose individual style really sets up the figure inside. Full details at
Distinctive Dummies Website
I love stuff like this, the Justice Society pose for a fun portrait, see more at the Mego Museum
While I’ve seen a few Vampi’s in my day, I tip my hat to the creation of the supporting case here. Check them out at the Mego Museum.
Golden is right, this is a visual treat. Box by the Toyroom.
See more of it at the Mego Museum Customs Forum.
There is something so pleasing about the clean aesthetic of this figure, check it out at the Mego Museum Custom Forum.
It is always a treat to see a new custom by mjaycox, this one is no exception.

Stunning work as always by Megospidey, custom box by the Toyroom.

This little bit of wonder was created Museum member Houseofdracula and honestly, I just can’t heap enough praise on it.

Another Mego Style horror classic from DD, limited to 50 units, these will soon vanish forever.
Get him at Distinctive Dummies
Am i safe to say that this is the only Mego like Gene Autry custom ever attempted? It’s the first I’ve ever seen and in a world of countless Wolverines and Batmen, this singing cowboy is a welcome oasis.
See more at the Mego Museum Forums.
The so called “Reaction Retro” thing has been sort of a mixed bag for me but I did think the Universal Monsters were nice. Museum member enyawd72 has shown us that under those figures are some excellent sculpts as his talent with a brush shows above.
He added a special charm to all the figures, you can see them at the Mego Museum Forums.
A fairly recent creation from Distinctive Dummies, this figure is 100% awesome in it’s cheap-0 50s sci fi glory. Still available at their website.
I’ll round out the evening with two figures I’m working on right now.
The Troughton era Cyber Controller was a fluke, I was gifted the head by it’s creator at a Mego Meet and it hung around in my luggage for over a year. Then one lazy sSunday, I painted it and put him in an Action Jackson rescue squad uniform. I need to finish some little details (and eventually make a 2nd Doctor).
The Cyberman is the laziest custom I’ve made since I put robin shorts on my spock and called him “Submareener” (i still call Namor that). I spray painted a Bif Bang Pow Cyberleader silver. I covered the face with a dab of putty, it works, go do it.
Happy Birthday Doctor Who!
