Puppet Wars II: Tomb of the Puppet Master

Puppet Wars was originally meant to be the first of an epic Puppet Wars trilogy where Andre Toulon and his creations would battle the Mummy, Frankenstein and Dracula, with Guy Rolfe set to return as Toulon and Turhan Bay being considered for the part of a mysterious Egyptian. Funding fell through at the last minute, but not before second unit footage was shot of an old–fashioned steam train in Romania, footage that was eventually used in Retro Puppet Master.




  • Scripts for all three parts can be found at:
  • Christopher Lee was available to play Andre Toulon during this time.
  • Bombshell was created for this series but she was later redesigned and used in Axis Rising.
  • This series was a tribute to the Hammer and Universal monster movies.
  • The plot in this series was similar to the one in Indiana Jones with the Nazis in Egypt setting.
  • The Curse title was recycled and used for a different movie.
