THE MUMMY'S HAND (1940)

1/6th scale, Mummy and base produced by XO-Facto and sculpted by Jeff Yagher
George Zucco produced by Shadow Castings and sculpted by Terry Reynolds
Nameplate by Fritz, The Headless Hearseman


This is a kitbash of two models. I did the George Zucco model years ago but never had a base for him, and then I acquired the Tom Tyler mummy.
The two seemed to fit together on the base well!

 



I love the dead black eyes of the Tyler mummy.
They did that in post-production for "The Mummy's Hand" (1940), the first sequel to the original "The Mummy" film with Boris Karloff from 1932.
I re-watched the film before tackling this, and I realized that this model looks a lot better than the mummy in the film.
In the film, his bandages look like a cheaply-made rubber suit. You can almost see the zippers!

 



The base comes with this really nice statue, but you can't see it in the original XO-Facto photo of the built-up kit - you wouldn't even know it was there.

 



I found this nameplate in my whatnot drawer. I'm pretty sure it came from Fritz, The Headless Hearseman, awhile ago.
