Another look at the Barnabas Collins model

Universal Steve has posted a few images of a completed Barnabas Collins model kit at the Universal Monster Army message boards. Steve confirms some of the criticisms of Lyn Powell, who spoke about his work on the kit in a previous post here at TCHS.

Like Powell, Steve thought the flexible arms were "useless" and expanded on the base provided for the figure. He also purchased a replacement head for the model from CultTVMan, a part that looks more like actor Jonathan Frid than the item provided with the original plastic kit. He goes into more detail (and provides additional photos of the completed kit) at the UMA message boards.

This alternate head doesn't look so much more like Jonathan Frid than it does famed Dark Shadows fan and write Jeff Thompson who I think used to play Barnabas in teh Collinsport players sketches.
