Shortly after the announcement of the figure, I received an email from someone (we’ll call him “Joe”) close to R.J. Torbert, the Director of Licensing at Fun World, the company that owns the Ghostface/Scream Mask license. “Joe” advised against me proceeding with the release of the figure as Fun World does not take kindly to perceived infringement of their intellectual property especially if there is to be any monetary gain. I took this as a heads up from “Joe” saying that if I proceeded, the next step would be a cease and desist letter. So, I pondered my options. I could release the figure and take my chances that a large multinational company like Fun World would even bother with litigation over such a small case. If they did, I feel that I could raise a strong enough legal case for “fair use” of the Ghostface likeness based on the figure being a parody or even a social commentary. However, as I have never been down that path before and don’t exactly have money lying around to line up a defense attorney, I reconsidered and decided to shelve the figure. I’m sorry to disappoint any of you looking forward to the figure but such is life. Art goes on. There will definitely be more Kill People bootleg figures from Jack’s Attic. Stay tuned.

The Zombie – Bright green body with a red splatter. This isn’t just a figure with some red paint thrown at it. The red splatter is actually cast into the plastic seamlessly.
- Raspberry – A dark pink/fushcia figure.
- Oscar – A gilded figure reminiscent of the Oscar Edition of our earlier Crystal Lake Prom figure.
First off are the three (3) original colors I had conceived when I initially put this project together:
- Part 3 – Green body with a white head. This obviously pays homage to Jason’s look from Friday the 13th part 3(D). This installment of the franchise sees the Crystal Lake slasher don his characteristic hockey mask for the first time.
- 8-Bit – Purple body with a blue head. Seeing a resurgence in the last few years, Jason’s 1989 NES showing is the inspiration for this figure.
- Kinkeshi Flesh – Pinkish/flesh body and head. This figure is cast in the singularly unique color of the mini, rubber M.U.S.C.L.E. wrestling figures of the early 198os.
Stay tuned for more sneak peeks of the 13 different variations of Kill People bootleg resin peg figures that will be available in my STORE for only $8 starting on Devil’s Night.
