Gemr, the leading app for fans to discover, discuss and display, takes us on another fascinating journey with its docu-series Collection Complete with One Customs Figures founder Montwain Gonzales. Driven by his love for the horror genre and inspired by Rick Baker’s work in John Landis’ groundbreaking 1982 video “Thriller”, Montwain shares his artistic journey into sculpting 1:6 scale figures. Early on, he used any materials he could land — silly putty, glue, clay, wax and even toilet paper — to make his screen heros come to life. Today, he is living his passion spending hours and even days, creating the perfect scale figure of Jason or Freddy. And although he has ventured into the world of Sci-Fi and comics as well, horror remains his favorite.
A talented artist with his work highly sought after, Montwain remains humble about the power of art and what it does for him. He launched his own boutique company Ones Customs Figures which creates one-of-a-kind, 1:6 scale, high-end reinterpretations of some of the genre’s most beloved icons. “You could take my hands and I’d learn how to sculpt with my feet,” said Montwain.
The series’ fifteenth episode offers fans a different perspective of the world of collecting and is destined to appeal to anyone fascinated by art. Past episodes of Collection Complete have covered the personal collections of filmmakers Mike Mendez of Tales of Halloween fame and The Hills Run Red producer Robert Meyer Burnett. Upcoming episodes include collections of designer, artist and model Micheline Pitt and Horror’s Hallowed Grounds’ Sean Clark among others.
Over the next four weeks, those who create a free account at Gemr’s horror club will have a chance to win a one-of-a-kind Ones Customs Figures reimagined interpretation of Jason Voorhees from 1988’s Friday the 13th Part VII: The New Blood, valued at $1,000.
