The Son of Svengoolie show was big influence on my love of monsters and horror films. The show was a local Chicagoland comedic TV horror host program that ran from '79 through '86. As a kid I never missed an episode and was introduced to some true classic (and not so classic) monster flicks. Sven came back on the air in the 90's, dropping the "Son of" and simply going by his namesake, Svengoolie. The show is still going strong today and I try to catch it every Saturday night.
The action figure used in this shot was custom made by me about 10 years ago. It was one of the first custom figures I ever made. A photo of the figure was shown on an episode of Svengoolie's show back in 2000.
Huge thanks to kingdufus who allowed me to use his great shot of the Svengoolie set, seen here, as my background in this shot.
