  1. Yes, that is the same little guy. I own one but paid up at $99 which was the going rate just a few months ago. They are out there but considered rare. The mold is from the 60's so getting harder to find. I hope to be able to offer it to all collectors for a lot less. There is always a place and price to own an original but I feel everyone that wants to own it should be able to. still waiting on on a local company to see if their blow mold machine can fit my metal mold. Thanks for showing him to me.
  2. UPDATE! I have not really had any luck and did not want to waste anyones time with no news. I had spent many months of calls and emails to American companies that make various kinds of blow molded products. Many said they may be able to make the plastic blow mold but none can do the finishing/ painting. It seems to be a lost art. But strangely through a random conversation I was pointed to a company only a half hour away that makes blow mold products. Right now, not our kind of blow molds. They do have a company that handles the painting part and do a wonderful job. They have my metal mold fo
  3. I would like to speak with anyone that owns a metal mold from any blow mold company that has closed. Just trying to see how many are out there. Also if they ever tried to have it made.
  4. That is a great point on the clear blow mold. just to update i started a facebook page called - Let's save vintage bloe molds Please join! thanks for the constant knowledge you and others are willing to impart. i have my blow mold sample at a paint mask makers for pricing. also a blow mold maker for a price to create un painted and or painted finished product. we really need to bring back production to the USA,
  5. Just wanted to update this post. I have my blow mold sample at a metal mask makers to get a price for 4 color masks. please also join my new facebook group called Let's save vintage blow molds. Please join when you have a moment. Thank you for the new input. I have seen a few Christmas molds being re-imagined by painting them as great new Halloween themes. You make a great point in allowing the buyer to use there own ideas on how to finish/ paint the blow mold. If I were going to have them painted (maybe in the future) I wanted to start with a boy (ice blue) and girl (red and pink). Also

Also I thought of a Halloween version dressed in black and orange with the snowball he sits on as a jack o lantern (paint the circle snowball orange with a JOL face). I saw this clear plastic TPI BEAR blow mold online being sold and thoug
  7. This is the same guy I bought from. Did you buy yours as a collector of molds or with the intention of having them reproduced? I see on Blow-Molded it was made with a pole. was the pole available. Is it also the lantern that the Poloron Animated Santa has in his hand?
  8. Thanks for the replies - Cado has returned my emails but what i did not know is the mold did not have the paint masks. I could not get any more than an estimate of $5,000 for 4 color masks. I thought that sounded high but researched on this site and found the masks were made of steel. I am waiting for a reply from Christmaslightscreations.com but only contacted them a few days ago. Please spread the word about the project and i'll update any news here and on a facebook page that i am creating now. There are about 7 more molds left that seem like they were formerly Empire or Bayshore.
  9. Hello Everyone, I am a long time blow mold and vintage Christmas collector, but new to your group. I recently bought a metal mold to make a new reproduction the Old Empire - Elf sitting on Snowball blow mold. I sadly found it had been bought by a scrap yard I assume for the metal. As we know this was normal when many Blow Mold companies went bankrupt. I have contacted Cado and Christmaslightscreations.com that has some Grand Venture molds about taking the next step to actually create a new version with new paint, as not to be confused with the originals. Does anyone know of other companie
