    Default Gag Studio's "The Count" vampire prop. Anyone have him?

    I stumbled upon an eBay listing for Gag Studio's "The Count" vampire prop being sold this morning at a pretty good price and bought him. Apparently this company had 11 of them for sale and this was the last one with 18 people viewing him, so the timing couldn't have been better. I have admired this prop for so many years in many of members' photos posted here and am excited to be getting him (new in box too!). I understand that he is a pretty big prop and wondering if anyone who has him can tell me more about him before he arrives. Love to know how big the box is that he comes in and an idea of what it weighs along with anything else you can think of. Favorite ways you like to pose him. Need to start planning for storage space for him and hoping he doesn't weigh a ton.

    One more question. The ebay description said he is made of polyfoam. How well does that hold up over time? Don't know when this one I bought was manufactured but I know the prop has been around for a number of years. Just hoping polyfoam is better than latex but wondering if the polyfoam is also latex coated.

    Thanks guys.

    Heard thru a PM from a fellow haunter (Much Thanks again!) about their Count and glad to hear it's held up really well over the years. Feel relieved in knowing that.

    Would welcome any photos any of you guys might have showing your Count in your haunt. I seem to remember one person's Count behind an old West facade so know he gets around and isn't living just in Transylvania !

    Hey GOS. I've had this guy for many MANY years. He was one of the first really good props I splurged on well over 10 years ago and I'm happy to say he's held up great!!!! He (along with a similarly made witch I bought the following year) is probably one of the most favorite pieces I own! Unlike my latex props, I store him in the attic. It gets well over 100 plus degrees and I haven't had any issues. I am also able to carry him by myself. I think you'll be really happy you got him.

    It's a neat prop and one of the weirdest and coolest that are commercially available. Good purchase!

    He comes in halves, waist down are the legs, 360 degree, upper body hollow and cap covers that.
    Red led eyes on a d cell battery, will run for days.
    Wooded square platform part of the bottom half. (I consider him easy to move and light while in halves)
    I use ground stakes on all 4 sides of platform to secure. Halves secure with threaded bolt, wingnut and washers,
    I keep my grounds keeper (he shakes) out for several weeks (also GAG studios), the count usually is on the end of the driveway overlooking a raised coffin with a Raising John Doe in the Coffin. You'll love him.

    I've had my Count for years. The polyfoam will hold up just fine, it doesn't break down like latex. He does have a hollow back that makes him easier to move around, but it's hidden by his red cape. Here's a potato quality picture of mine from this past season.

    I just wish I could afford the coffin that's made for him. It looks awesome, but costs twice as much as the Count himself.

    I have had The Count since 2003. I first used him lying in a casket and later used him in my living room. I removed the red cape on mine and like it better without it:
