from what I know, Sid Haig always did free photos. But with the greedy world we live in, somebody is profiting besides Sid for these gimmick photo ops. If you already have a free one, why would you pay for this because he is wearing a costume and make-up?

Well I already have crow Sting I'm hoping to be able to get Wolfpack Sting at RF Con (then perhaps go to NYC). So I see the appeal. That being said I'm happy with my free table op with Sid and won't be paying for this.

The costumed ops are for the diehard fans of that particular film/TV Show/wrestler/etc., since you're getting a photo with the "character" rather than just the celeb. If a person isn't into that particular film, of course the costume op isn't going to appeal to them.

Unlike the Jason ops, at least with Sid you can see his face! Plus it's his most notable role.

Ehhhh, who still wants Curry at this point?

Has anyone seen the prices for the Jason ops? 80, 90 bucks each! Insane. Sid Haig in costume $60. No thanks.

Some people may choose to upgrade their Curry pics from the ones they got at Chiller since hes looking a bit healthier these days

Only thing that would draw me to Curry would be if he signed items in person which is not happening...The Jason photos are a ripoff..it could be my nextdoor neighbor wearing a mask who cares. The Haig shot is not bad since you can tell it's him, but not doing that one either.

I'm about as big of a Friday the 13th fan as you'll ever find, but I don't see the appeal in costume'd ops. Maybe if the guys were wearing original, screen used costumes, but even then it would be a stretch for me. And those prices are ridiculous.
