One of the first vinyl figures I ever bought was Super7‘s Blood Red Rose Vampire. It was the second release of the series, and though I had the opportunity to buy the original Green Hell I passed it up. Well, that turned out to be a massive mistake–the piece is incredibly rare now, and fetches up to $300 on the after-market. It quickly became Stephen’s Holy Grail, and we spend a long, long time looking for one. When we finally got our hands on one, he was still a bit over retail but far below market value.
So how would we celebrate such a rare acquisition? Why, we’d take him to the most beautiful place I know for a photoshoot! We save only the cream of the crop to haul up to my aunt’s massive garden in upstate NY, and I don’t think that there is a figure more deserving than the OG Rose Vampire.
We did this shoot a year ago, but I still think it’s one of Stephen’s best. You can really tell how much he loves this figure, and I’m pretty sure it still remains his most favorite piece in our whole collection! So check out the gallery to see what a Rose Vampire gets up to in a garden!
