Phineas Head

Greeting Foolish Mortals!
After a short break, I'm glad to be back and with a prize of a collectible! If only it were mine!

My good friend Guy has an amazing Haunted Mansion collection, but the pièce de résistance is this fantastic Phineas head from the Haunted Mansion attraction itself!



Here's how Guy scored this amazing piece...
"About 1990 or so, a man who worked in props in the film industry had acquired a real robot ghost head of Phineas from the Anaheim DL HM. He offered to sell it to me for the unbelievable price of $60.00!! I couldn't believe it! I don't think he realized how special this item was. Fortunately, I did. So it is now one of my most prized pieces in my ever growing collection."


Some people have all the luck! Well, we're lucky enough to have these photos! Thanks Guy! This is the closest to an authentic HHG prop some of us will ever get!





Happy New Year Everyone!

your collection is incredible!
where did you get the stretching room posters? I've been looking everywhere and the closest thing I can find are the tapestries from 2005. I really just want the tightrope one, but if you could point me in the right direction for any you'd be my hero!

Elysia,
thanks for the comment! This is my friend's collection and it is pretty impressive. Those large stretching room prints were available at the Disney Gallery in Disneyland and were a print on demand item. I hear the Gallery is coming back to DL, and hopefully, the print on demand will return! Right now, the only place I know is 2nd market, such as ebay. good luck! be sure to bookmark our new home at
