Hey Bidites, I thought I'd share my Rawhead Rex collectibles here. I'll start with the first kit I ever bought The Pagan King Rawhead Rex sculpted by Shawn Nagle and released by Ren Factory. I've been collecting for years and their is something special about old RAWHEAD that I just love.
For those of you not familiar with the 1986 film here is a synops and trailer:
Rawhead Rex is a 1986 British horror film directed by George Pavlou and written by Clive Barker. The film is about a monstrous pagan god's bloody rampage through the Irish countryde, and based on the short story by Clive Barker that originally appeared in vol. 3 of his Books of Blood series. Pavlou and Barker had previously worked together on Transmutations (also known as Underworld).
The next one is from a line of kits called Monster Babies. Rawhead Rex Jr. from C & Cs Toys & Models.
Let me know what you think guy's.

I didn't paint them a friend of mine did. He does great work
I tried to paint mine up first but I got no talent for it.
Here's a couple of pics of the one I painted up.
My friend Pete had to strip it down and start from scratch he added the base for it.

Here's some Rawhead comic goodness. Nightbreed VS Rawhead Rex was released in 1992 and
ran through issues 13 thru 16 of Nightbreed from Epic comics.
The story uses the books plot as the starting point even through the degn of the movie
is used for the artwork. Rawhead is brought back to life through a black magic ritual.
The ritual uses a Nightbreed baby to give Rawhead Rex life.

Been awhile guys but here is some new Rawhead Rex art I have picked up.
This piece has a little history behind it so here is the story as told by the seller.
Let me explain. In 1988, then unknown writer Steve Niles had a short-lived comic company
called Arcane Comix. During the company's brief existence, contactwas made with then new
horror writing sensation, Clive Barker, and together Niles and Barkerproduced several projects,
including a magnificent portfolio of lithographs of Barker's beautifully painted cover art for
THE BOOKS OF BLOOD series, and a collection of Barker's pen and ink drawings in Arcane's
anthology, FLY IN MY EYE. During this time, I was the Art Director for Arcane Comix, and
degned both the portfolio and the anthology.
Other projects in the works before the company's collapse were other publications that
included a comics adaptation of Barker's SECRET LIVE OF CARTOONS, an adaptation of
Richard Matheson's I AM LEGEND (later published by Eclipse), a collection of Matt Howarth's
early Post Brothers comics, and a comics adaptation by Stephen Bissette of Barker's gruesome
RAWHEAD REX. This promotional poster for REX was the only item produced by Bissette and
published by Arcane before the company's unfortunate demise.
Produced in July 1988, the poster was produced for distribution at that year's San Diego Comic-Con,
along with posters for some of the other planned projects. The poster itself was printed ung two
colored lk screening -- black and red ink on a light gray card stock. It measures 11 inches by 17
inches and had a print run of a couple of hundred copies, most of which were distributed at the
convention. The copy being offered for sale is from my archives and is in NEAR MINT condition.
So here are some pics.

Hey guys been awhile nce I posted anything new in this Rawhead Rex section but, I got
something to share with you today. This past Friday I traveled to Dallas for Texas Frightmare
Weekend 2011. I could only go one day because of work. My main objective was to meet
Clive Barker who would be gning there the whole weekend. I took various things to get gned
posters, books, and my Rawhead Rex bust. I stood in line for five hours to see him. It was worth
it when he saw the bust.
One of Clive's helpers saw me outde with the bust and asked if he could take a pic of it. I told
him sure he snapped the pic and returned to the room Clive was in. He later came back out to
me and said Clive was blown away by it and couldn't wait to see it up close. I was excited to get
the chance to show it to him. When he saw it he said he loved it and asked me if I made it my self.
I was in awe of the man but, I explained to Clive that I had commisoned someone to make it for me.
Clive wanted me to let the artist know how impressed he was with his work. I told him the guys name
Jonathan Fuller and his webte Monster Asylum.com. Clive had his asstant write down the info.
Clive then asked me why I loved Rawhead so much. I explained to him why and told him I found out
about his work through the film. He told me he always had this vion of Rawhead a puddle of organs
and flesh turned inde out and then when he's unearthed he starts to mutate into his normal form.
Kinda like Frank in the first Hellraiser film. Clive said we should do that when we get to the remake. I
said your doing a remake and Clive smiled and said no. He did say the rights would be reverting back
to him soon though.
He said the only thing that needed work was the hair. I told him I agreed and was thinking of getting
him rehaired. Clive asked me if I had a artist in mind and I told him yeah her name is Laura Lady. He said
for me to give him my contact info that he would love to work with her on the project. He looked at the
Rawhead bust and said he always wanted to incorporate some kind of markings or tattoos on Rawhead to
show his age and that he is the last of his kind. Clive gned the bust and asked me if I would mind I said no
whatever you want to do is fine with me. Clive actually drew a tattoo on my Rawhead bust. It was awesome
man. He then shook my hand and reminded me to leave my contact info. I was so stoked. Here are some pics.
Wednesday 5/04/2011 at 04:38 PM | 75519
Also got my Rawhead Rex movie poster gned by Clive at the show.
Thursday 5/05/2011 at 09:00 PM | 75562
oohhh man, that's SO awesome!!! i'm a big fan of Rawhead Rex too, and couldn't get that bust from Fuller back then, so just to see yours, with that tatoo that Clive did on it, it's just amazing! Great score man!
You have a unique and priceless piece of collection in your hand man. Congrats
Monday 5/16/2011 at 04:44 PM | 76431
