Can someone please tell me what this thing is and where I can buy one?

Please.

I'm begging you.

I've just re-discovered it while sorting through old e-mail. (Thanks, Antonio, for the link)

Any tips would be greatly appreciated ;)

    I think that’s as close as a toy can come to being evil incarnate.

    Holy CRAP! My grandparents have the face part– I used to play with it all the time when I was little! It’s probably still in the toy box in the front closet!

    i could start sculpting now and not stop for the next 20 years and i still would probably never come up with anything even near that great.

    I’m trying to decipher the language to see if it helps. The website is from the Netherlands, so I would assume it’s Dutch, but it doesn’t seem to translate in Babel Fish or any of the other translators I used.

    It’s like tracking down the Ark of the Covenant, but instead of it being the resting place of the Ten Commandments, it’s a demon lumberjack with a crazy rubber face.

  5. I was able to translate the whole site with Babelfish, but there was no real clue to what was on display in the video.

    I did track down the rubber face. Now all I need to do is figure out what the lumberjack body is from.

    Devlin Thompson, of Bizarro Wuxtry in Athens, GA can probably give you some info:

  8. The face is made with a finger puppet for sure, which were popular around those days in Chinese bargain store and flea market plastic junk.

    I remeber having seen this toy at a flea market between battery-operated robots and cars as a kid. Even then I found it pretty dumb and ugly, but now I can see the beauty of it.

    As strange as it is it was manufactured that way. Probably by the factory that made the finger puppet on the second line.

    Damn that thing is a freak!

  13. BubbaShelby says:

    Does the “finger puppet” mask have four finger holes? One at forehead, one on each cheek, and one at jaw? If so, I think I may have had one as well.

    *Sigh* I almost dread relating my experiences with the “Faces of Doom” from the Musical Wind-Up Demon Lumberjack.

    I was just into college in the mid-80′s when these bastards came out. I’m 43 now (2010), so it has been years since I was exposed to the freakishness of the faces.

    After starting college in 1984, I did a some-what typical thing some males who have been “nice and good guys” throughout the high school years…I went nutz with alcohol, ecstasy, and weed. I experimented like the world was about to end. Those creepy faces were “props” my friends and I often used to torment folks who had over indulged in the poison of choice for the evening. When you are high on mind-altering chemicals, those finger puppets are of Satan.

    I was in that party scene for only 2 summers, thank God, and pulled my head out of my a** and finished my education. I would never trade those two summer’s worth of weirdness for anything, though. Very good memories and good times….except a few times the faces got out of control. Most of the time I recall laughing my butt off as one of us would go into some impromptu theatrics with a face (mustache guy was my favorite) and would torment random people on campus or about town.

    One guy who was especially freaked out by the faces high-jacked the whole set and burned them. I was heart broken. Since then I have been looking for them but had no recollection of what they were called. I almost yelled when I saw them on your site! I had never seen the lumberjack thing…only the faces. I plan on trying to find these rubbery devils on eBay and exacting some vengeance on the person responsible for their fiery demise. If I’m lucky, a good, hard flashback will be my reward. Thanks tons for showing them off here!

    Best Regards,

    • Wow! That’s an unbelievable tale! I’m glad you found my blog.

      I can probably help you out with getting some of those rubber face if you’re actually interested. If not, thanks for sharing. Such a hilarious scenario. I can’t believe someone actually took your faces and burned them.
