    Hi TVTA, I haven’t seen those BTVS and Angel collectables before, I should have “figured” they would make a range but never saw them.
    But regards to statuettes and busts etc, the one item I would love to own was an Aliens filming maquette of the Xenomorph. I got to see the screen used puppet when it went on display in the early 90’s as part of a book tour at video rental shops. I knew one of the contributors to the book and got to have a real close up look at the model when it came to my town. The skull had over 9 layers of paint and clear coat varnish to give it a glass like appearance and you could see all the “brain matter” and “blood vessels” beneath. It was a real piece of art. (I think Aliens is close enough to Horror!)

      Hi FT, that screen prop sounds fantastic. The Alien franchise is one of my all time favourites. Can’t wait for further instalments. I keep meaning to try and get hold of some of the Funko 3.75 inch Re-Action figures vintage style. The Predator ones are good too.

        I think it would be even better on my display shelf 😀 But it would be a little out of my price range now, heaven knows how much it cost to make let alone what it is worth now it is screen used! I might look up some of the Funkos but I hear they can be expensive too.
