Welcome to a heaping helping of Modern Horror! That’s right modelers, no creaky monsters of yesteryear for you! This issue, AFM will slash its way into your heart with beloved characters from the ‘80s forward; so hang on to your puzzle boxes as AFM returns from the living dead to haunt your modeling nightmares! For starters we raise a little Hell with Pinhead, give birth to Species and let the fur fly with American Werewolf in London! Then Hellboy's Angel of Death and Tooth Fairies take flight while Twisty the Clown keeps things down to Earth… like down about six feet under! Next, we kick a little Ash from The Evil Dead, and Daryl Dixon keeps on walking! AFM throws the spotlight on SPFX artist Sandy Collora, and if that weren't enough, we take a little stroll down to L.A.'s Creature Features for a visit with Taylor White! All this and more awaits you in issue #61 of Amazing Figure Modeler!

Next issue, we’re trippin’ all the way back to the groovy ‘70s! That’s right Disco Stu, time to open that shirt collar wide and throw on some bell-bottoms with your platform shoes to celebrate the decadent decade of Dyn-o-mite! First we’re going to do you a ‘solid’ and send you down into the lab for some rib splitting laughs with Dr. Frankenstein from “Young Frankenstein.” Next, it’s a madhouse baby with the “Planet of the Apes” and the “’76 Kong” will be swinging in to crush an aircraft or two! “Scooby-Doo” is off to the races with a custom “Mystery Machine” that puts the ‘burn’ in burnout! You’re going to wanna to stay outta the water ‘cause “JAWS” is the shark that loves to leave a mark! Then things will get really ‘far out’ with the “Alien,’ and it’s sure to be a panic in Detroit as David Bowie gets so glam it’s ‘wham, bam, thank you ma’am!’ Next, we’ll ‘keep on truckin’ with an AFM company profile on Atlantis Toy and Hobby Inc. and, as a special treat to mellow out all you figure freaks, sculptor Ray Santoleri will be providing a sculpting tutorial on a total ‘fox’, Lynda Carter as TV’s “Wonder Woman.” Now dig it y’all, AFM’s “That ‘70s Issue” is going to be ‘outta-sight’ and modeled just right so get set to boogie all you jive ass turkeys! All this and so much more from your figure model buds who always put the ‘Zing’ in Amazing!
