Every year I post about the Rapco Monsters along with the phrase “Why don’t I own these?” This year is no different. From a previous Halloween the 1975 Rapco Catalog
A marriage of Monsters and colorforms comes close on the importance scale to chocolate and peanut butter in my house.
Turning the reins over to my buddy Matt today, who provided not only the photos but the prose as well. Take it away Matt! These are the wonderful, magnificent, Mold-A-Rama Blow Mould Frankensteins. Mold-A-Rama first appeared in the mid-60s, and was a staple of the Museum and Zoo experience for lucky kids in the 60s, […]
One of my favourite monster toys of late is this tremendously quirky 1980s action figure made in Brazil by the famous (to Star Wars collectors) Glasslite toy company. Glasslite simply released the single 3 3/4″ Dracula, no other monsters appear on the card and he’s a pretty sweet figure but that’s not the best part. (Photo […]
Horror (1982), World Publishers It’s weird to be doing a Colouring Book Theatre on a Friday but this October and this is one of the coolest colouring books I’ve ever found. I discovered this in a shop called Planet of Stuff and bought it unopened mainly because it had Peter Cushing as […]
Torn right from the pages of Famous Monsters, the Aurora Monsters of the Movies series is easily one of the “top five” monster kit series of all time.
I adore the Mego Mad Monsters, it’s definitely in my top five all time Monster toy lines (which I’ll speak more about this month). While Mego didn’t get the Universal license, they created a really crazy series of generic Monster figures that even glow in the dark! Here’s Mego Dracula and the Mummy in their […]
It’s October and that means the Halloween content flows like fake blood around here. To all of you who had this wonderful set as a kid, please let it be known I’m still a little envious of you. These kinds of items always intrigued me in the back of magazines and comics but I never […]
As we are both lovers of Monster Cinema or some call it “Creature Features” it makes sense for J and B to count down their top ten favourite Monster movies. By favourite, we do not mean “best” or greatest, just our personal favourites. Our top tens vary wildly which makes for an interesting discussion, Jason […]
‘ My pal Matt sent me this photo and I have to say, I’m a l’il jealous of this killer monster themed rack toy. While a licensed toy (based on the Saturday morning antics of Charlie Chan) it’s also got a some copyright infringement going on in regards to it’s targets. Ahem, those gentlemen look familiar, […]
