Title: Latest Gets?
Post by: Golddragon71 on February 19, 2013, 01:23:54 PM
I found a section in Vintage for latest finds but I couldn't find one here. (If there is one, and i missed it just merge this into it.)

So today i got my Sideshow Invisible Man and the DVD  so I hit TRU on the way home from the Dentist and picked up the DST version as well

(http://i836.photobucket.com/albums/zz286/Lantern2814_20850/IMG_0314_zps4377527a.jpg)

Here's Sideshow IM with his brothers in chronological order (I don't have any of the other DSTs just yet.)

Awaiting my Distinctive Dummies' Mego-style "Dracula, Prince of Darkness" figure. Before that, I got several 12" Dracula figures, and the McFarlane Toys MONSTERS Playsets Dracula.

Just Got both DST Phantom's
(http://i836.photobucket.com/albums/zz286/Lantern2814_20850/IMG_0343_zps2b1e39b2.jpg)
pretty much the same figure twice Articulation's exactly the same on both. Masked version just has a different Head and instrument
Neither One is a BAD figure but I'd have preferred a Red Death over Masked (although it's going to be tough to beat Sideshow's red Death quality wise)

I've been waiting for this guy from Japan for a while now. Worth the wait! Love the paint scheme. Unfortunately, even though he was sealed in bag there is some paint missing inside of mouth. I think he makes a great fit with my Gyaos!

I don't have pics, but I'm sure you all know what these items look like.

In the last few weeks I've acquired some great Creature stuff.

The Creature "Grave Walker"
The giant Amok Time Creature (arrived today!)
That new mask (forget the maker).
One of those resin "3D" CFTBL movie posters.

Very nice Marusan 1955 Godzilla and Angilas!! These look like 60s/70s figures but are actually newer-made in the late 90s/early00s by the new Marusan. Absolutelt gorgeous and a real steal at 40 bucks!!!

Yes, all 2001/2002. The three on the right are all from the movie Ghidorah. The other Zilla is the 55 suit from first movie. Ghidorah might be my favorite G movie, Showa era suits are the best, so these are my new favorite figures.

G-Fest XX was a total blast. Only my second G-Fest and in a geeky way I was honored to be at the 20th anniversary.

Here is my complete haul. Went a little over board but am happy with every purchase and got a great deal on everything.

Not sure if she's a monster, or just monstrous. Anyway, after seeing "Oz the Great & Powerful," I fell in love with Mila Kunis' delightfully evil Wicked Witch of the West, and just had to have her! However, she got a restraining order, so this is the best I could do!

That Count Yorga is a freakin' awesome figure. I display mine with some of my vintage monster toys. The box is narrow enough to find display room, whereas with the Sideshow figures the boxes take up too much room. I prefer in-box display, but when my Yorga was displayed loose when I was waiting for Martin to send me a replacement box, the figure looked coolashell and held a pose pretty darn good. Helluva figure. ;) :)

Having met Robert Quarry and known what a marvelous, intelligent man he was, I know he would have adored this figure. That's why I had to get one. Plus, I love the Yorga movies!

Congrats. Dennis Druktenis had that ish for sale in the back of Scary Monsters for awhile. Don't know if he still has any, but that's where I got mine. You're right, it is a toughie. That was the last one I needed to complete the run. I guess everyone tore it up to put up the posters, hence the scarcity.

You bet he's in great shape! Godzilla cuts a very handsome figure indeed.

And Monster Times sure had some great covers! Maybe monsters just come across best on ordinary newsprint.

Weighing in at around 130 pages plus per issue, Scary Monsters is the best monster mag value available. The way Dennis can give us all that content is printing his mag on cheap paper. I think he has the right idea. I prefer 2 to 3 times the content to slick, thick, paper. Of course the quality of the content is the most important thing. SM has the most interesting content as well IMO.

It appears Vlad Dracula was the only 12" figure in the line. They did Premium Format Figures of both Vlad and Blackbeard the Pirate, who was planned to be the second 12" figure.

I guess those were the only two they did. It's a shame, really, because their are so many notorious historical figures that would make great 12" figures. Sun Tzu, author of "The Art of War." Julius Caesar. Alexander the Great. Erik the Red. Of all the original character/historical figures Sideshow introduced in 2009, the only one still going is "The Dead," their original zombie line.

Amazing steal on that, Mike!  If the seller were to have listed it under Telco or Motionette, it would have been three to four times higher!  It never even crossed my feed. 

Even with the frayed cord and without the box, this one would have sold for much more.  Congrats!

I don't think the boxes are that interesting and wouldn't want to pay the extra for one. The cord is easy enough to fix, but I wonder what's wrong in the neck area. Looks like his head is coming off!

Nothing is wrong with the neck, Mike.  That's exactly how they were manufactured, except this one seems to have come up a little more than most.  The hard plastic made it impossible for the neck to be connected to the body and still allow for smooth movement.  You can play around with it yourself to make it look better, but it will probably affect the movement.  In this particular case, the first step I would take would be to see if the upper body can slide up a few centimeters to cover the bottom portion of the mechanism.  Either way, it should not be that noticeable in person and on display.   :)

Yeah.  That's one of the stock images used for the Creature Motion-ette.  They always made them look better for the catalogs.  Still, they are the best references out there -- especially for how the figures should look.  In a lot of instances, the figures will be missing an accessory or they will have a different costume, so it's always nice to reference the retail images.  It's not such an issue with the Universal line as it is with the earlier Motion-ettes.

I have never used mine and it is still in the box.

Mike, the body on yours seems to sit about 1/2" lower than mine. The top of the body piece should be flush with the lower inner mechanism. Not sure if can be adjusted (I would think somehow it could) if you wanted to.

There is a total 1/2"-3/4" gap between the head and body, which appears exactly right for movement.

I'd probably say it's more like a 1/4".  I think the picture makes it look worse than it is.  Depending on the assembly on his, it may be as simple as scooting the upper body a tad. 

My Mr. Bones has a similar problem, but with his feet.  I tightened the bolts and he looked great.

Sloppy paints, limited releases, too much Halo, and a scale that doesn't fit in with any other lines. I still purchased their TWD stuff, but I've never really been happy with them.

WooOOOOooo, this is why I still love ebay.

Although they're not Universal monsters, there's some monster-sorts in here!
I found all these goodies in the last two months.
An Imperial 80s 12in Godzilla, a China knock-off of the DorMei 13in Godzilla (with rare jointed hands and feet!), a blow mold troll from Spirt Store, one of those massive rubber Chinese dragons, a neat vintage wizard puppet, a bunch of Dragonology dragons to complete my set, and a really rare vintage rubber Hong Kong unicorn that's.... anatomically correct.

...aaanddd the best ever, a couple of my Facebook buddies team up to make me a little sculpture each year. One dreams it up and has this other talented artist lady make it.
This year, Gremlins!! And they're buuuuudies.

Also got this at BB for $9.99. Some really obscure and fun SF TV here including a few episodes of Tales Of Tomorrow.

No box or accessories, and he's glued to the base, but he was just ten bucks at Mad Monster Party in Charlotte, NC, this past weekend.

$20 at MMP. Hard to get him for less than that online, with shipping.

I'll be honest, I'm not very impressed by this figure. He was cheap enough, though, and he'll fit in with my Mego-style Christopher Lee Dracula by Distinctive Dummies.

Aw...another Satr. at my local Emporium of Oddities. Decided on these 2 fellas. Hoping one of you UMAers will know something about them.
 
 First is what the lady at the Emporium called Creature from the Black Lagoon.....I don't think so, but thought it was cool. 12 1/2 inches tall, cries, moans and laughs. Bottom 1/2 is hard plastic...top 1/2 is jiggler type material. By Manley Toys ...and says Toy Quest. Any knowledge out there?

   Second one has me scratchin'. He's a ride-on Dinosaur that looks to be battery op, but after much frustrating time I can't find a battery opening. Is this maybe a Dino for like He Man or someone to ride? Any idea how the batteries are accessed? 2006 by Mirage Studios Playmates Toys

I finally picked up the Friday The 13th: The Series complete DVD set the other day. I really like this show from the '80s. They just cashed in on the popularity of the Friday The 13th movies with that name, it really had nothing to do with them. I remember when it was rerun a few years ago on some network they called it "Friday's Curse". Pretty cool show.

Using the established Friday the 13th moniker is also what killed the show; groups that had no clue as to what the show was about just assumed Friday meant teens drinking, doing drugs and fornicating in between being randomly picked off by Jason.  Advertisers gave in to idiotic pressure and fear and started dropping their commercials, at the time of the shows cancellation it was the 2nd rated syndicated show with Star Trek Next Generation coming in first!  Much like the cast of The Munsters some 30 years earlier, the cast of Friday the 13th The Series were shocked when they got word that the series was so abruptly over.

Dinoriders came out in 1988 and this is a 2006 toy. I first thought of dinoriders as well. With all of the reissuing of 1980s toylines I thought it could be some new version of them.

After a quick google search it appears to be a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles toy Allosaurus and Michelangelo Paleo Patrol.

Here's the skinny:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Friday_the_13th:_The_Series (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Friday_the_13th:_The_Series)

It was about two cousins, Micki (Louise Robey) and Ryan (John D. Lemay), who inherited an antique store which was owned by their uncle Lewis Vendredi who made a deal with the Devil (yeah, him again) to allow several items to be cursed and distributed into the world to spread chaos and evil. Micki and Ryan are helped by mystic expert Jack Marshak (Chris Wiggins) and spend the rest of the series trying to get back all of the cursed items and lock them in their vault for safe keeping.
Great show. They pushed the envelope on horror, violence, and sexy (w/Robey) for TV for the time. I watched it when it first ran, and in syndication. Really great DVD set of all three seasons, and cheap now- like 40 bucks cheap. Do yourself a favor and check it out.

Got these monster rings in the mail today. They are heavy pewter, and look great on display. Sculpted from Aurora heads with a Sideshow Phantom and Mezco Nosferatu thrown in (I think). A couple of these could take the place of brass knucks! I love 'em.

I bought three sets. Of course mine have an extra signature because the artist was there in person at comiccon. Best monster grab so far at comiccon, I did pick up some sideshows and mini remcos but monster stuff seems scarce or overpriced. Still, the prints are a very nice find so I will call Comiccon a success for this monster fan. Oh I forgot Eddie Munster and Marilyn Munster were guests, most of the celebrities are Star Wars, Star Trek and Walking Dead actors all fun to meet this time.

They are supposed to.

The figures were made in two different white plastics. 

One is very white, like milk glass, and it does not glow very well.

(https://farm4.staticflickr.com/3842/14964529117_e24d47f700_z.jpg)

The other is not quite as white, and looks slightly translucent - it glows a little better.

Depends on the bulb.  If it is a full spectrum bulb it will work best.

But you don't really want full spectrum bulbs in display cabinets with old collectibles.  The items looks nicer, but the sp bulb fades colors like sunlight.  Best stick with the ugly white light.

They will glow with any light - just not very brightly.

Now you really must collect the milky white Creature.  It looks better in natural light.

Today eBay came through for this Monsterkid.  :)  This is another example of the excellent work that DST is capable of. The nice base is nearly as killer as the Creech figure.

I picked up the 2014 Diamond Select Son of Frankenstein today. Was driving by a Toys R Us and thought I'd see what they had. Grabbed last SoF. I think it was $15.99. Last week I bought the McFarlane Alice Cooper---that's been on my radar for a while, so I finally grabbed it.

And i know they're not popular on this forum, but I picked up set of the Funko Universal Monsters. I agree the articulations are substandard, but I think the set looks real cool up on the monster wall.

Earlier in the summer i snagged a 2006 Bandai Rodan and 2013 Bandai Mechagodzilla.

I'll try to get up some pics soon.

Yeah, most of the McFarlane stuff can still be bought pretty cheaply, I guess because so many were produced. Many of the McFarlane figures are really very good. A few years ago I narrowed my collection to mostly monster related stuff because I just accumulated too damn much... stuff. Anyway, I stopped collecting superhero and some other genres and decided to focus on my favorite genre- MONSTERS. Of the McFarlane product I kept the Movie Maniacs, Monster Playsets, and some monster related faves like Alice.

I never did collect according to $ value. I just collect what I like. Apparently many other people like the same stuff because most of my junk has become sought after, and as a result, expensive. I could never afford to replace my monster collection, so I'll never sell it. I am careful what I buy these days regarding size.
Title: Re: Latest Gets?

 The Movie Maniacs line was exceptional, really raised the bar on modern horror figures. Three months after the MM figures came out, Sideshow did the same for classic horror figures. It really was an incredible new era for grown up MonsterKids. NECA would later carry the torch with their Cult Classics & Uni Headknockers as would DST (to a lesser degree, imo).

. A few years ago I narrowed my collection to mostly monster related stuff because I just accumulated too damn much... stuff. Anyway, I stopped collecting superhero and some other genres and decided to focus on my favorite genre- MONSTERS

Almost the exact same story here and I enjoy selling off a lot of my stuff because it finances my monster hunting.

Exactly. I was beginning to feel burdened by all the superhero comics and action figures I had accumulated, because I had stopped enjoying that stuff. I've never gotten tired of the monster stuff though, as I've loved monsters and dinosaurs since I was a wee Monsterkid. The unwanted items are a good source of trade items or monstering money, as you say.

I'm a huge Alice Cooper fan and that figure is way cool. I picked that up many moons ago when they first came out. I used to buy all of the McFarlane figures but ended up just keeping the Movie Maniacs and a couple more like Alice.

Thanks for posting the pic---yeah that's the one. I love it, and I'm big Alice fan too. I've seen him a few times in concert. He's the best. In terms of other McFarlane rock n roll stuff, I have some of his Kiss figures. The "Kiss Creatures" box set is especially awesome.

Back to Alice though, do you know he has new comic book out? I have the first issue. It's very cool.

Actually, I'm only familiar with a few of these pieces. The hallmark card was given to me decades ago by my much-maligned ex-wife and I've seen the trading cards around. I'm not a paper goods collector, so I haven't really looked through much of those items. Seeing them in one place really makes them impressive, though.

The top pic:

Trading Card Treats (1 of 6), Pepsi Cards set (1 0f 6) and the Creature card from the "Classic Toys" card set. Wacky Packages cards and a Doritos sticker.

 
The bottom pic has:

A French movie card. It's an ongoing series with probably 100s of cards. Only one Creature, though.

A 1980s bookmark. There were other UMs and many other characters (Disney, etc.) made by One Stop Posters.

Italian movie cards. Stats on the back.

Two repro 1959 post cards from Wakulla Springs, FL.

The Hallmark die-cut.

While anticipating my UM ebay purchase in the mail which was supposed to have arrived on Sat. but according to tracking hasn't been updated at all today (sigh) I will post this poor substitute Halloween find instead.

I found a few of this ceramic skeleton hand in the discount bins at Michael's art and crafts store for like 2 bucks each. They are very cheap in price, the correct size, and seem reasonably anatomically correct ( I didn't bother to actually look up the bones of the hand.)
With a little paint it turned out fantastic, looking very realistic and I went and bought two more.
Now what am I going to do with it...

Very impressive, Golddragon71! Any real Universal Monsters collector can appreciate the coolly iconic appearance of Metaluna Mutant. It's been well represented in monster merchandising since the late '50s and is part of Monsterkid history. Gotta have that Mole Person as well to be complete.  8)

It would be nice. I guess it could be molded from plastic with maybe a moveable eye and tentacles and a transparent stand. It could be a cool figure with some Gogos style paint apps (some weird color combos).

Thanks for that clarification. I think I prefer the prototype, but the released figure is more realistic. I'm really hoping this line catches on with collectors in the US. I'm also hoping we'll see earlier Doctors in this scale. So far, we've got 1x David Tennant, 2x Capaldi, and 3x Matt Smith.

Mine is also low on water. I swear it is evaporating. The plug looks like it's glued in.

Toy is 7.5"ish. Box is 10" tall.

I got mine from Entertainment Earth, but they were sold out in pre-order. I'd be surprised if anyone has one, except ebay.

Entertainment Earth has a distressed Frankenstein exclusive, but the pictures look iffy.  I have also seen a "glitter" Frankenstein that will be coming out that looks better than it sounds!

I really don't understand why these are so popular.

I know the Japanese market goes for the deformed figures in bright colors.  But why are they gaining such a following in the U.S. - especially among collectors who constantly complain about figures not being "screen accurate" enough?

To me, they are garish and bizarre-looking.  I just don't get the appeal.

I like many stylized monster toys. Some of the best stuff we grew up with is stylized/deformed- Palmers, Big Frankie Kit, Nutty Mads & Weird-Ohs, Niks.

The price on this new Japanese stuff is totally offputting. I had rather put my monster money toward other items where I feel like I'm getting my money's worth.

Even if you mean "close to screen accurate" (which is the best you'll ever get), you'll have a small collection that won't get bigger very often.

I kinda like the oddball stuff, as long as it's not an unlicensed wannabee, like the "Stretch Screamer". If it's vintage enough, like the '60s bobble head, I might change my mind, though.

New deformed figures aren't worth 50 bucks a shot to me, but I was mainly referring to some of those high end Godzilla figures which cost several hundred dollars. I know some people buy them but I'm just stating my own buying practices.

I like that. My collection is big enough now where I really don't want it to grow much. I don't buy any new "stylized" figures & I'm slowly getting rid of the few ones I have. I don't like the Mezco figures (the Mummy's ok, I guess), but this Hikari stuff hits a new low.

Something told me to bop into the local Goodwill on my way home: 
I found this really cool "Bennigan's Creep Week II, 1994" glass for 99 cents.  The design is printed pretty much all the way around the glass. Google and eBay says it's kinda rare? Only 2 or 3 listed on eBay, and Google only has info on this one.  There doesn't seem to have ever been a "Creep Week I," or any other monster designs in the series. Does anyone know anything more about these? I did a search here and didn't find another one.

Yeah, that's a good score, Speed. I've checked Goodwill and other thrift stores a few times and never found anything worth picking up.

I'm sure you've considered this, but I think the area has a lot to do with it.  I'm from a small semi-rural town in FL, lots of old folks (FL, duh, I guess. haha) and not many people with disposable incomes.  So things are usually held onto longer and the stuff that ends up in the thrift stores is actually vintage and mostly well taken care of.  Contrast that with where I go to school in an uppity Atlanta suburb: I went yardsaling one weekend and vowed never again; all new cheap disposable junk and clothes.  Very disappointing.

So it might be worth venturing out to the next town or county over and scoping things out.  :)

Oh yes, "Location, Location, Location" doesn't just pertain to real estate values. I live in southeastern TN, the armpit of the country when it comes to finding nice collectibles. This area has always been several years behind the rest of the country on everything, no genre shows/conventions, not many collectors, not much of anything "monster" and very little of even "comic book". Believe me, dude, I would have to drive a lot farther than the next county to stand a chance of finding anything good. Unless I go on vacation I'll have to depend on the interwebbings, specifically eBay.

It looks like an original '60s one (though I don't know if they have duplicated the original colors on the Mexican ones). They only came in this blue/teal color and orange. $20 for an original would be a great price, if it hasn't been chewed on.

Took this pic off the net so you could see detail my phone camera wouldn't pick up. I think I am going to buy a second set as I want to paint these too. I have painted a couple hundred figures this size over the years but the eyes ain't what they used to be. Anyway here is the pic. I hope they come out with a second set as well as hunters.  Zombie Cool

That figure is a limited edition blue prison walker exclusive to the San Diego comic con. Don't know what the original price was but $20 seems to be common asking price. I've seen them sell for as little as $6. The 1st series walker set goes for between $30-50 depending on seller and availability. I got mine(on it's way) near the lower end. The prison set I pre-ordered was around $21 + shipping.

I just got these from Ebay. They were reportedly prototypes for keychains that were pitched to the Universal Parks, but were not manufactured or sold. I'm not sure how true that is, but I liked the look, detail and style so I figured the were worth $19 to me. The Monster's pose reminds me of the Zoo Pics spoon and swizzle stick. They are 2.25 inches tall and are cast in metal.

I have 2 Franks and 1 Bride, bought from 2 different sellers a few years apart - so I don't think the "prototype" story holds water.

But they are cool and the price seems reasonable.

Just got this in the mail:

(https://farm8.staticflickr.com/7578/15937597869_ecf3573273_c.jpg)

It is a 2011 collection of ALL the Mad Magazine horror movie satires, Halloween related stories, etc. for over 50 years.  It even includes the little horror-related "Marginal Thinking" cartoons from those years!  For UMA members, this collection offers only the cream of the cream.

It is a nice, large book at 8.75 in. x 10.75 in. (about the size of a Mad Magazine) and 386 pages.

The articles appear to be in chronological order as published.  My only quibble is that the pages are not numbered and there is no index.  If you want to go back and read a specific article, you just have to remember about when it was published and thumb through the book.

I couldn't begin to recommend this book highly enough!

Re: "Horrifyingly Mad" book.

Loved all the Mad movie satires when I was a kid. This looks to be a great book.

The nice thing is not needing to posses that many years worth of smelly, worn old magazines and having to look through them all to find the horror-related articles that I loved so much as a kid.

It is great to have the full-sized pages instead of the Pocket Book reissues from decades ago.  With this we are able to enjoy all the little artistic nuances we found in the original magazines.

So much fun.

Ordered the Mezco stylized Mummy and the DST Karloff "Son of Frankenstein" for 1/3 off at TRU.com  FULLY expect less than mint packaging, but at that price, these will be for display.  BTW, the SOF is the figure only on a VERY simple base so after the discount the price was only $10. Wondering if any of the other DST figure had this "frills free" type of release?

They all did, actually. Remember series one? The T'R'U version of the Creature came on a small base (no Kay figure), The Mummy had no sarcophagus, Phantom had no organ (insert joke here), Dracula had no wolf, no lab table for 1st Frankie etc. Check out the DST section at the top of the Modern Toys section. All the pics are there.

True. I bought both versions until the last series (loved that Mr. Hyde rooftop base). I didn't see any reason to hunt after Creech & Frank when all they offered was a plain base.

Santa brought me a Mezco Greaser Rebel Frankenstein.  The amount of detail on this little guy is really impressive!  From his greasy fingernails, the bicep tattoo of his Bride, the real chain wallet, working zipper and belt, and the "1931" on his back patch.  I was really surprised that his shirt and jacket come off to reveal that his torso is also translucent, and painted/sculpted with stitches and cuts. 
He helped me work on the Edsel over the weekend!
But first he got a little handsy with my grille ornament.

Speaking of Cthulus (Cthuli?), I finally got ahold of an Inhumanoids Tendril with pointy, unbroken fangs.  At 15" tall with bendy tentacles  he's a proper adversary for Godzilla.  Zombie Grin

I went to TRU tonight looking for that Crimson Ghost or new Creech on the cheap (Van Helsing is already on clearance, btw) but came up empty handed.  I did, however, find Surf's Up Joker to go with Surf's Up Batman! There were actually two on the rack, I thought I had read somewhere that he was canceled for production, or at least delayed. Totally stoked I found him because like Batman he's hilarious, with his trunks over his pinstriped slacks! Cowabunga!

The Metaluna Mutant won me over with the Interocitor.   The band "Man Or Astro-Man?" got me hooked when I saw that they regularly incorporate an Interocitor in their live shows.  If you like surf music infused with globules of cheesy sci-fi, I highly recommend them.  I can share some of their tunes if there's interest here.  I made my 60yo comic book dealer (who loves surf music and Godzilla) a CD of their stuff and he really digs it.

I checked out the Days of the Dead con in Atlanta for the first time today.  It wasn't too shabby for the price of admission, but the Spooky Empire shows I've been to in Orlando definitely dwarf it.  There wasn't a whole lot in the way of vintage goodies, but there was quite a few modern toys, just nothing in my price range or anything I couldn't live without.  I was stoked to get somethings autographed for the first time, but immediately bummed that everyone charges $20-$30 for a signature or photo op.  Kinda takes the shine off...  The couple highlights were that Rock Rebel had a booth, and the rep appreciated me rocking their Creature belt buckle, so he gave me a small discount on their big head Frank shirt I've had my eye on.  All in all I picked up 3 shirts from different vendors.

I also did meet C. Marin Croker, who is the voice of Moltar and Zorak on Space Ghost Coast to Coast, as well as the head animator on the show, as well as Aqua Teen and others.  He only wanted $10 for a signature.  He was happy to sign all over my Space Ghost CD, which is a pretty rare one and seemed impressed to see it.  He was also selling prints for $25, again, signed and customized all over. Super awesome dude all around. I wish I could've sat and hung out with him all day.  And yes, the Creatiki was at his booth!

Yeah, I don't usually have a beard, but it's cold outside Florida! Haha.  He had it for sale at his booth, $225.  (But to be honest, I'm pretty sure I can carve one myself, and we have plenty of palms...)  I'm not an autograph hound, this was my first venture, and I legitimately enjoy his work.  PJ Soles wanted $20, the Crypt Keeper guy wanted $35, I didn't see Sid Haig there, but I'm sure he was just as much. No thanks.

You'd think, but not really. Maybe if I were there to get one in person, but even then, meeting the people would mean more to me than their signature. It would be alright as a memento, I guess. I'd never be interested in buying signed photos from ebay, though.

Its vinyl and made by Marusan, the extra head is actually a mask made of soft rubber that can slip over Michael's head. Super stoked to own this guy as he's one of my favorite werewolf designs. Don't know why they didn't give him claws though...

I would have preferred one of the records from later on with Mothra pictured on them, but the prices were a bit high (and the shipping from Japan made them higher).  sEARCH ON eBAY FOR "The Peanuts" and "Mothra" to see some examples.  I got lucky on this one.  I like it because it was an oddball.  I always thought that they would have been cool convention guests.  One of them has already passed away.

Great group! Is that the Apocalypse Creature? It's hard to tell the difference between that and the "Original" Creature.

Yea! Its the Apocalypse one.  I like it better than the "Original". The purple version of the Mutant is way cool too, although some of Frank's recolors aren't that cool to me...

I finally scored one of these Product Enterprise 12" Christopher Lee Dracula figures off evilBay for a reasonable price- $85. This is a killer figure! I didn't even know about these until a few months ago and I've been stalking the eBay listings since. In person it looks great, and the packaging is really nice as well.  :)

(http://media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/736x/a7/53/49/a75349f9e09aaed2ada6bde4d793d182.jpg)

I also picked up the Executive Replicas Horror Of Party Beach figure and Blood Of Dracula figure off of their site for cheap. The boxes are really cool and the Party Beach figure of the goofy monster is not bad and certainly worth the $45. The Blood Of Dracula figure is mediocre, but for 30 bucks I'm glad I got it. I haven't paid $30 for a 1/6th scale figure in a nice box since the Sideshow days a decade-and-a-half ago.

Also got one of these Cannibal Apocalypse DVDs off eBay finally. It's been OOP for years. I remember passing on buying it new for $20 at Borders years ago. I've recently been watching all of the classic Cannibal flicks and this is the only one I didn't have. I'm not one to give a hundred bucks for ANY DVD regardless of how scarce it is, but I finally found a nice "as new" copy for $30 shipped with a nice case and insert so I pulled the trigger.

(http://www.dvd-covers.org/d/25846-3/219Cannibal_Apocalypse.jpg)

This flick stars John Saxon and is the only classic long pig buffet to take place in a city instead of a jungle. I plan to check it out tonight. Love the "Euroshock Collection" DVDs from Image and have most of them.

My figures usually stay packaged, especially when they display this well in the original packaging. One of these sold for well over $100 a few weeks ago on eBay with a really beat up box. I didn't want that one because packaging condition is a big concern of mine. I'm happy with the one I have now.

Like an idiot I passed on the DD 1/6th scale Chris Lee Dracula. But, at least I have all of the DD Hammer Megos, and plan to not miss any DD Hammer figures in future.

I really like the box design. The Hammer symbol is elegant and striking, and the leather grain pattern is attractive. The back has a nice photo of the figure and some info, and the inside front cover is well done. I think it's a nice alternative to the traditional poster art or illustration. I normally prefer poster art or really good illustration for figure packaging but something like this is cool occasionally.

Yes, I think it's a truly great figure and a very good Christopher Lee Dracula likeness right down to the red eyes. The hands even have detailed veins and the ring.  8)

Regarding the Hammer symbol on the box: that symbol is used on the newest Hammer trading card sets from Strictly Ink (2008/2010). Here's another pic of my Hammer binder I posted previously in the Monster Trading Cards thread that currently houses all of my Hammer trading cards.

(http://i1291.photobucket.com/albums/b552/horrorhunter/hammerhorror1TCbinder_zpsdff8e83c.jpg)

BTW, I kept at it and finally got all of the autograph cards for the 2010 set, and all of the autograph cards for the 2008 set except for David Prowse. I'll probably post those in the Monster Trading Cards thread at some point. I really love Hammer and I'm excited about the Hammer Mego Style Set 2 from DD. Meinster down and three to go.

While home on spring break I hit up my local comic/collectibles shop and found these Mattel Haunted Haulers from 1997 MIB of $10 each! There's the "Ghoul Bus", "Neck Wrecker", and "Drac Bike."I found them in a back room amongst a bunch of Bettie Page stuff, I don't know how I've missed them before.  Anything with monsters and hot rods always gets me and these guys are no exception.  Powered by two rubber bands (included!) one pulls back on the launcher, loads in the vehicle, and presses the tombstone to let 'em rip!  I found it interesting that on the box with the contents it lists only 1 skeleton minion, but they each came with 2. So, either it was a typo, or a marketing ploy to make every kid feel like a winner (I know I did...)  The details are really funny and neat, like bone drive shafts and cobweb control arms on the undercarriage, a skull pile in the wrecker bed, vanity plates, and taglines on the tombstones: "R.R.R.: Readin', Writin', and Racin'" and "RIP: Rust in Pieces." Too cool!

I also got the DST banks of Metaluna, the colored Creature, and BW Bride. At $25 each, I'd rather support a great small business than buy online.
This shop and his cohort across mainstreet also sell local artist prints, and I got this Creature's Prey for $20, signed by the artist, George Frei.

 The weird thing is it has the Universal Frankenstein and Wolfman,a generic mummy,a nice haunted house and what looks like Count Chocula as Dracula.

Anyone on the fence about getting them, as I was, should do so. They look really great in person. And, really, you gotta ask yourself, "just how many good Hammer and Amicus figures are there?" Not many. I plan to get the Hammer Phantom and Duc De Richleau when I can afford them. I sure wish I would have grabbed one of those 1/6th scale Christopher Lee Draculas with the extra body when DD sold them new. Hopefully Martin will do another 1/6th Chris Drac from another film at some point. I'm sure he would sell through, probably the day of release.

I have been on the fence for awhile about ordering the Grimsdyke figure. It looks really good in the pic you posted. I just ordered. ;D

I think you landed on the right side of the fence.  :) That Grimsdyke figure is awesome. My favorite story from "Tales from the Crypt". I've never purchased a custom figure before. What do they generally cost if you don't mind me asking.

Customs vary greatly in price. There are many factors that price is derived from. The character, artist, size, rarity and how many were made are all factors. Average prices for 1/6 horror figures are usually in between $110 - $300. However, ones from high end, big name artists range from $500 - $800.

Obviously, it's not a true life mask casting. This is a cast of the make-up sculpt, where they took the original life mask, and sculpted the appliances onto it. It was tweaked by the sculptor to have the eyes and mouth open.

lol I agree with you. However, I am really looking forward to receiving this figure. It should arrive any day now. I watched the film about 2 weeks ago. I enjoyed it. It had a very creepy vibe during the second half of the film. The figure is based on not only what is seen in the film, but the artist's rendition. There is no way to have a 100% likeness because you never see the entire face or a good enough shot.

I dont believe the design is silly. I certainly think the figure is perfect. We always clamor for an original design....then when we see a picture where we get one....we complain. Mostly because (whether we wish to believe it or not) is because it doesnt look like a traditional creepy.

Lovecraft beasties certainly are original in their look...but they hardly ever  get produced.t everytime they do they sell...so i dont get it.

Yeti is probably sold out form Martin were I to hazard a guess.

As for never knowing exactly what the Hammer Yeti looks like....wrong. This figure is a masterpiece.

Considering no one else on planet earth has even bothered to make anything from this film, for half a century, and the film languishes is "re-run obscurity purgatory" for the majority of the i-phone obsessed public....anything but heaps of praise for this figure is hopelessly inadequate.

It may look a little bulky but that's the way 1/9th scale figures are, whether they are wearing bulky looking clothes or bulky looking "fur suits". I think it looks great, and I think the movie is on par with Hammer's usual good quality offerings.

My point was that clothing always looks bulky on 1/9th scale figures...even fur suits.
Part of the reason for that is that most 1/9-scale figure bodies are for superheroes, and are therefore "bulked up." I've seen a few 12" figures where the clothes weren't removable, and were sewn onto the bodies. This gave them an ultra-slim appearance. It's a good look for vampire figures (unless they also sparkle.)

However, I only got around to photographing them today. They're pictured with the 1/18-scale lighted Spin & Fly TARDIS, against an Entertainment Earth Action Stage Diorama Backdrop (#4, The Northern Castle).(http://images.tapatalk-cdn.com/15/04/28/84e3e26a3f12373a2fdb7d4a9b8253ca.jpg)(http://images.tapatalk-cdn.com/15/04/28/9b87334eca2430669e3de168a032774d.jpg)(http://images.tapatalk-cdn.com/15/04/28/56c284d8a2d8652242a68815ce46f3bd.jpg)(http://images.tapatalk-cdn.com/15/04/28/a3aeff272b2de90de6ca9c76cb73ddd1.jpg)(http://images.tapatalk-cdn.com/15/04/28/b9a15b296b25747e98abb868a9727f40.jpg)(http://images.tapatalk-cdn.com/15/04/28/c123d1ce3f4bd5a8c25f4aa6cc47381c.jpg)Sorry the pix are a bit fuzzy, but my new phone has an even crappier camera than my old one. Also, yes, that's the wrong TARDIS interior for Amy. (It's from "The Snowmen," the first Christmas special after Amy & Rory's departure in "The Angels Take Manhattan." The Doctor's green coat is correct, however. It was first seen in "A Town Called Mercy.")

I dont believe the design is silly. I certainly think the figure is perfect. We always clamor for an original design....then when we see a picture where we get one....we complain. Mostly because (whether we wish to believe it or not) is because it doesnt look like a traditional creepy.

Lovecraft beasties certainly are original in their look...but they hardly ever  get produced.t everytime they do they sell...so i dont get it.

Yeti is probably sold out form Martin were I to hazard a guess.

As for never knowing exactly what the Hammer Yeti looks like....wrong. This figure is a masterpiece.

and then there's this neat-o little reference given to us by one of our resident Yeti-Heads, Ray...

Considering no one else on planet earth has even bothered to make anything from this film, for half a century, and the film languishes is "re-run obscurity purgatory" for the majority of the i-phone obsessed public....anything but heaps of praise for this figure is hopelessly inadequate.

I don't think he meant the design was silly, so to speak, just seeing an Abraham Lincoln looking figure as a Yeti does make one smile. I can compare it to this. My favorite Godzilla look is the Godzilla 1962 from King Kong vs Godzilla. That Godzilla has huge floppy feet, thunder thighs, a gut, dopey looking eyes and a sort of silly looking face. Yet, to most collectors, including myself, it will always be considered Godzilla's greatest look.

Seeing The Abominable Snowman made me appreciate this figure much more. Also, now that I have it and have been looking at it for the last 24 hours. I really like it.
As far as the Yeti being sold out, I would image that happened almost immediately. I don't know if the figures are shipped out in order of when someone places their order. However, I think I placed mine around 48 hours after it was released and I have number 60. I am curious as to if these are going to hit ebay and what prices they are going to fetch. I have a feeling that many private colloectors purchased this figure and vendors might not have been able to scoop up as many as they normally would have.

That's exactly right Horrorman. I couldn't have said it better myself. I was going to post and use the very same Godzilla analogy myself but since the replies to my comment seemed to be dying down I let it go. Thanks for setting the record straight. :)

And just for the record I love Hammer films. When I was a kid seeing Frankenstein (Curse of) and Dracula (Horror of) in living color for the first time was mind blowing. Was a fan ever since. Hopefully I'll get a chance to see "The Abominable Snowman". People are asking ridiculous prices for the old DVD though.

Just picked up this whole outfit today on eBay for $35 and free shipping!! Couldn't believe the price. It includes a TOTS Dr. Tongue mask, some really nice looking zombie hands, a bloody jump suit (in my size) and a bottle of blood. The mask alone was worth the price. I'll post my own pics when it arrives.  :)

EDIT: Upon further examination of the pictures that the seller posted and comparing it to other photos online it looks like the mask is actually a "Bump in the Night Dr. Tongue" mask which I'm fine with as Chuck Jarmin did some of the best "Day of the Dead" masks including his "Bub". In both cases his "Day" masks are more movie accurate than TOTS.

I'm glad I started to warm up to the Diamond Select figures, because I absolutely LOVE these! The Frankenstein monster doesn't really look like Karloff to me but...I don't care! Its an awesome Frankenstein figure, probably one of the coolest I've seen! Also the hype is true about the Creech, it looks phenomenal.  I'm glad DST got their sh*t together cuz these are amazing.

I also got this guy...

And he's so big!! This figure is amazing as well, the attention to detail is great and NECA made some great decisions with making the interchangeable hands a soft rubber.  The likeness to West is really nice too.  I haven't figured out how he can stand yet though, his ankle joints seem stuck and I don't want to break them.

Tried to take a pic for scale with my dog, but she wouldn't sit near it.  If anyone's interested in this figure they're having a sale over at Big Bad Toy Store, got him for only 65 bucks. A good bat bargain.

Great looking figures! I like the Diamond Select stuff. Been buying their Marvel stuff for a while now. That Creech is perfect. I like the the Frankie too even though it's not a dead on Karloff likeness. I have this "Son of" Frankie. It's a really nice Karloff likeness. I forget who made it though as I got this before I started leaving them unopened.

That's ok, I think those figures hold a special place in many people's hearts (including mine). I don't think DST would have done some of the figures they've done if it weren't for Sideshow paving the way. Who would have though that there would ever be figures of The Metaluna Mutant & The Mole People sitting in toy store shelves in this day & age? I'm glad you warmed up to the DSTs. While I still prefer the Sideshow versions, I enjoy having their take on our favorite monsters. There's room for everybody...the more the merrier.

I remember reading an interview by a Sideshow rep stating: "Our products won't solely consist of the same stable of 6-8 characters" I distinctly remember saying "If they make Werewolf of London....they are true fans. They gave us the ONLY licensed Werewolf of London figures. In smaller scale and 1/6. Good times. But now long gone. :angel:

You CAN find some monster stuff, but there isn't too much. There's a lot of Marvel and super hero stuff, but its a good place to dig for rare treasures.  There's a small corner of sports stuff and card collecting.

Got my Werewolf Shadow figure from Distinctive Dummies.

Kiddin'. I finally got around to drawing a Werewolf Shadow backing card overlay for my Waldemar Daninsky figure.  :)

Thanks.

BTW, in Werewolf Shadow the moon appears blood-red. I've always preferred a shaded moon with some texture hence the stipple work. If anyone digs low enough they can find a silly comparison to anything.  ::)

:laugh:

My sense of humor is still the same as ever. And you won't get under my skin the way you have some members in the past...I know you. You seldom post anything of any real value that we can all enjoy as a group, but you forever lurk waiting to take cheap sniping shots at someone else's expense for a quick (sometimes mean-spirited) laugh. No hard feelings, dude, but you really should look into having a personality tune-up. Maybe some counseling wouldn't hurt. Hell, don't feel bad, it's probably just a common case of a$*h*l**itis. World's full of 'em you know.

I really think it is you who has changed. The comments about your art were positive. Check your earlier posts as opposed to your recent ones, it's like a different person is writing them. As for counseling...well, pot meet kettle.

I'm just being honest with you here, your "positive comments" are usually laced with just enough venom to be unsavory but not quite enough to be called up because then the person calling you on it would seem like the aggressor. You have this weaselly pattern honed to perfection. I like joking and BSing probably more than most, but you have a knack for being ugly with people and then masking it with supposed genuine care. I'm not trying to take shots at you. I'm just trying to give you an idea of the way you look sometimes from other people's POV. Sorry if you were insulted, and yes we could all stand to improve as far as the way we treat each other. I'm as guilty as anyone regarding less than good treatment of other people. I'll try to do better. Peace.

The more I read your asinine posts, the more I see how out of line you are. Who the f*ck are you to decide I f I post anything of real value. It seems that people enjoy the posts. What...so I don't post pix of that 3rd rate Naschy idiot and laboriously anal retentive essays on dinosaur playsets and that reduces the value of my posts? Ridiculous! Your suggestion that I get counseling seems more appropriate for your prima donna behavior. You disappear for weeks on end stating that you can't take it here anymore, and I"M the psycho? As for "sucking up" to Jaycox, I have said to his face that he's arrogant & he agreed. That doesn't stop him from being a brilliant customizer. I would love to own a few of his "Mage" figures (I'm sure you would too). You're right about one thing. It is a case of "*ssholitis" & you might make an appointment with your proctologist. There, now I'm done. Peace.

Cool score! I bought one of those for my son when he was a toddler. My attempt at making him a Frankie fan. I put him in the kid size rocking chair he had in his room. Didn't last long as he wouldn't go anywhere near him so I had to put him away. Still have him too.  One of my more favorite Frankenstein toys from that time period. :)

Thanks. I got the Wolfman Pozer back when Toy Liquidators were blowing out those X Plus Harryhausen figures dirt cheap. I snagged all of 'em except for the huge versions of the Dragon and Cyclops from 7th Voyage (got the smaller ones though). I still hate that I missed those but honestly I would be hard pressed to find room to display them now. I've really cut back on purchasing large collectibles.

I have a few masks (mostly Post reissues), but nothing like the amazing mask collections that some of you fellas have.

Thank you, thm. I ordered that from Kelly Mann back in '03 through an ad in Scary Monsters. It's #15 of 30.

I've loved the Langdon Zombie since I picked up the 1972 Creepy Annual when I was 13. I never could afford an original but when Kelly did that reissue I jumped on it. I think it was around $95. I've enjoyed looking at it look back at me for the last several years.  Zombie Cool

Congrats Count! Did you just buy the 8" glow Frankie? I was looking at one on eBay for $24.95. It didn't sell and it went back up at $19.95 but it was sold by the time I noticed. Nice piece and I love the packaging.

It happens to all of us. I bought a set of the Marx re-issue figures for $40 and saw that Mike Scott had just sold a set for $20. Still a great figure even at $40. Mord said that these originally sold for $15 when they were new. :)

I'm not sure about the details. When I saw the one on eBay I PM'd Mord for his opinion. He worked in a store that sold the Sideshow stuff so he's very knowledgeable about these figures. Maybe he'll see this post and chime in or you could PM him with any questions. I'm sure he'd be glad to help.
Title: Re: Latest Gets?

 Hi, gents, I guess I'm late to the discussion. I worked at a retail store that sold those Sideshow glow 8" figures. They retailed for $15, BUT that was 15 years ago. You should be able to find the other two for about $20 ea., if you're patient. They were also going to do The Creature, The Phantom, & The Bride but they never got past the prototype stage. I've never seen one of those for sale at any price. One good thing, your 8" Frankenstein looks amazing, with or without lights.

I tried to pick up all the Sideshow stuff. Unfortunately, I limited multiples to color & black and white (no glows or translucents). My Sideshow pieces are still my absolute favorites. I got all the 8", 12" & quarter scales (plus 2 dios & other odds and ends). Keep building up your Sideshows, you really can't go wrong with the quality on those. Like Glenn said, you can always PM me if you have any questions (that goes for any UMAer). Good luck!

Here are my most recent gets in the toy category. A Gigantic Frankenstein, A Sideshow glow in the dark Frankenstein and Mummy and a Jakks Pacific B&W Bride of Frankenstein figure. Thanks to Mord for educating me on the glow figures. I'll keep my eye out for the Sideshow glow in the dark Wolfman and I'd like to get the color version of the Jakks Bride of Frankenstein as well. (forgive the amateur photography)

WOW..What a great haul...It's like Monster Christmas. Also, your photography is great. In fact, one thing I first noticed in your pics, was the quality. The pic you posted of the 3 masks on the table last month was very clean and crisp. It was not grainy at all. To capture all the detail though, don't use a flash.

That means a lot coming from you. It's just my cell phone set on auto so the dark lighting prompted the flash. In this case it helped because the shrink wrap on Big Frankie was so reflective that without the flash all you could see was my reflection on him. I have some more masks on the way so I'll post that when they show up. If I don't watch it I won't have any money left to spend at "Son of".  ;)  Looking forward to it Mord.

I keep most of my stuff in boxes, including the sideshow 8 inch series. But if I see duplicates at a reasonable price, I'll pick it up so I can open one. Found the Mummy for $15. The box was beat up, but I bought it to open anyhow.

Great figures. Don't worry about proportions. It would cost way too much to design a specific "little person" body for this one toy. They look fantastic as they are. To answer your question...the Saucermen were described as "the little green men" in the movie. The lobby cards & posters depicted them as green, also. Then behind the scenes photos (prominently displayed in an issue of "Filmfax" magazine), revealed the actual color of the masks to be reddish. I would have loved them to do one of the three in black & white.

I agree about the Leatherface. My pre order came in a week or so ago. Also, I was just in a store and they had one, I almost picked up a second one. I think it is supposed to be collector friendly packaging, However, it seems sealed up really tight, not like the Distinctive Dummies packaging. Did you open yours? Is it just that I am being too careful with the packaging or does it seem really sealed up? Normally, I don't open anything. However, I wanted to adjust Leatherface inside the packaging.

It's kinda "collector friendly". Some here have been able to just pull theirs apart (depending on how tightly it's sealed). I've never been able to do that. I think you're supposed to cut (carefully) along the perforated lines. Then you can open and seal back whenever you want. Of course, then it's no longer MIB. Mine are kept airtight & sealed, but I really want to enjoy them.

Straight as an arrow. Big Bad Toy store really came through. However, you and I share the same obsession with things. Leatherface's head is somewhat turned to the side and you and I aren't fond of that. lol.. Also, there is something that looks like a piece of something stuck to the inner package right in front of Leatherface's forehead. It is not on the figure itself, but it almost looks like a splinter of wood or something stuck to the bubble card. It is a bit distracting.

Absolutely, send me one of those great Frankie masks of yours that still has a tag and I'll take it off. ;D Maybe I'll just show you a pic of the mask photo shopped without the tag. ;D

I got my Jason set at Toys R Us.  The paint on all of them was outstanding.  The biggest problems were with Mrs. Voorhees' collar sticking up.

You can get them online from NECA  now.

Scored some pretty cool stuff this weekend while visiting Oklahoma City (I recently relocated to Albuquerque.)

At Hastings I managed to snag the Jason/Pamela set.  I was able to use a 30% off coupon which knocked it down to around $36 bucks.

At Half Price Books in South OKC a collector unloaded his vampire toy collection!  They had David (Neca; Cult Classics), McFarlane Monster's Dracula, Sideshow Silver Screen 12 inch Dracula, and a few other items.  Using a 40% off coupon I walked away with the Silver Screen Dracula for less than $50.  I'm reallllllly excited about this find!  I wish they would have had the Dracula from the 6 inch line, but maybe that's just me being greedy.   :D

My latest gets are
30 garbage pail kids cards
A creature action figure (the new looking one / mezco toys)
A picture from earth vs the spiders

And when I went to the grocery store I found 2 cheap tacky-looking zombie toys in the kids section.
One was "Bill Guts", and it's exactly what it sounds like. So I had to get him and captain maggot to my game room.   tynhrt
(ps: they are extra cute since alot of the zombies had fun names like "slashed". "zombie rotten" etc while referring to celebritys.

I managed to pick it up at Hastings, they had two of each NECA exclusive.  Now that I'm back in ABQ and there are about 6 Hastings stores in the area I'm wondering if I could find another, there's not too many collectors out here that I know of.

It is VERY thick and sturdy. I think it's one of the best monster items in years, especially if you're a Lovecraft fan. I'm not a customizer (not figures anyway), but even if I were I think I would leave this one pure. It's that good.

I saw Pacific Rim for the first time a few days ago. It was good. However, I really would have liked to see them mix in some actual man made monsters. Good old fashioned guys in monster suits slugging it out.  I think the only man made effects where the organs from the monsters that were in the labs and the private collection.

A far more limited item, of course, but it still would have been awesome. I just can't imagine going through the process of making up these cards and not checking your facts.

I remember getting a full figure Frankenstein at Universal Studios when I was a kid from one of these. So cool to watch them work and you got a cool toy afterwards. Great memory.

 Glenn, that brings back so many memories. My dad worked at a huge Sears when I was a kid. They had one of these machines in the basement floor. The characters would change every week and I would be there with my quarter. I didn't care if I liked the piece, I just wanted to see the machine at work. I felt like Dr. Frankenstein pulling "the lever", haha.

So true. Do these things even exist anymore? A shame if they don't. I think kids today would still enjoy them.

I've heard members here say that they pop up from time to time. Horror Hunter's pieces are from 2013, so they're recent enough. I would love to see one at Universal Studios. If they had one that made a cool Creature, it would be worth the price of admission.

Mold-A-Rama---wow that's really cool. I have to admit I don't remember these. I would have been all over that machine when I was a kid. We drove up to Universal back in 1980 I guess, but I was like 5 yrs old. I don't remember seeing that, or seeing it anywhere else. Too bad.

 I see you can buy the machines from online vendors. If I had a mansion with a proper monster room, I'd had that to the collection for sure.

There are several Mold-A-Rama machines in the Chicago area, and several Mold-A-Matic machines in Florida.

http://mentalfloss.com/article/55241/brief-history-mold-rama (http://mentalfloss.com/article/55241/brief-history-mold-rama)

My favorite Mold-A pieces in my collection are my eight Sinclair Dinoland figures. I also have some others that I either got on a trip to Florida or ordered off fleaBay. If you buy this stuff on the 'Bay be careful of scoundrels passing off new MARs as boomer pieces.  ;)

I remember Sinclair and their mascot Dino the Dinosaur. I used to have the inflatable Dino that my dad got me at a Sinclair gas station when I was a kid. Whole point being that Dino and his brethren wound up in our gas tanks.  :)

Also got the NECA 12" Godzilla '54 this Saturday. It's probably the best one they've done, yet. I had to save up for three months for him, but it was worth it.(http://images.tapatalk-cdn.com/15/09/06/8f05bf74fabf0a14b3a83d9e4d15b7ca.jpg)(http://images.tapatalk-cdn.com/15/09/06/8ceff4575b94aebe91937dc7ea93149d.jpg)(http://images.tapatalk-cdn.com/15/09/06/7072f54a60a4f276e3bb1b289345977a.jpg)(http://images.tapatalk-cdn.com/15/09/06/dee8a559c69d44fff8f81414cd2ad1c1.jpg)(http://images.tapatalk-cdn.com/15/09/06/47821488033c44d67e30ff8d6b651329.jpg)
I also picked up the $7.00 3.75" Kylo Ren figure, the new Dark Lord from "Star Wars: The Force Awakens." Sadly, these new figures have just five points of articulation. I'm sure they will do the new figures in super-articulated 3.75" scale, especially once they release figures of Han Solo, Luke Skywalker, Princess Leia, Chewbacca, C-3PO, and R2-D2.

Got some new monster stuff from Amazon today:

(http://i1291.photobucket.com/albums/b552/horrorhunter/BigBucketOfMonsters_zpsjrljdl2p.jpg)

The NECA Godzilla (1954) figure (LOVE IT! Way Cool, Daddyo!  8))

Also received the Big Bucket Of Monsters, a big tube full of 100 assorted monster playset figures:

Crouching Werewolf
Frankenstein
Zombie with a screwdriver in an eye munching on an arm
Demon
Gillman (these are VERY COOL  8))
Godzilla (these Gs are really nice as well)
Mothra
Tombstone with skull
Cyclops
Tombstone (cross) with zombie hand
Giant Spider (the legs are all over the place on these)
Mummy (these guys aren't shambling, they're HAULIN' ASS!)
Dracula

These figures are very nice overall. All but two of the Draculas stand well on solid bases (except those spiders). As evidenced by the pic they come in light gray and dark gray. I counted them and sure enough there are 100 total figures. Not bad for 18 bucks with free shipping on $35 order (standard Amazon deal). These are by SCS Direct, Inc., Milford, CT, but they are Made In China (natch  :laugh:).

These look so cool I'm tempted to buy another tube and crank out another custom monster playset, and if I could find some victims and/or ANGRY VILLAGERS *hint, hint* I just might.

He's good. DD should utilize his talent in the event no good poster art is readily available.

Just checked your Monsters For Sale posting and it looks like DD has already utilized him for the Silent Monsters line. Those cards are great, probably the best DD card art aside from original poster art. His name didn't register with me at first, but I'll remember it hereafter. Congrats on the fine Vinnie P. painting.

Still doable. Just use these when you rerelease the Vincent Price line. They would look awesome and an improvement over the original. I might be able to get all the Vinnie Ps I missed in the original line.

Yes--indeedy! Love his art and use of color on the Price cards. It would look odd to change the art style mid wave, or from wave to wave. Consistency is necessity. 8)

Oops, sorry, I haven't really kept up on the Vincent Price line (as beautiful as they all are). I'm sure the Aragon art is fantastic. What I meant is , this would be a great card for a future edition of the same character (if you ever decide to revisit some of the more popular ones). Almost all of the DD cards are works of art on their own. I can't see these great figures without their beautiful original backer cards as part of the whole picture. And, yes Anton, consistency is everything when displaying these lines together.

I got some new mug additions for my haunted/cursed tiki bar.  The Creature shrunken head shall be my new pimp cup, it holds about a gallon.  The Bride mug and shakers are on loan from the girlfriend's collection for the picture.  There's also Drac's tiki shack from earlier, a shrunken head that holds ½ gallon, a shrunken hula girl head, a Frank shaker, and my other fave: the Creature with an ill-gotten surfboard.

(Booze and tiny umbrellas for scale.)

 But they are CRISP B/W and HC. I have several volumes of the Dark Horse Creepy reprints and though the paper is different they are still high quality. I also own several EC reprint color annual volumes from Gemstone as wells as the EC artist series. Can't have too many EC books. Still after the EC library Saddle Justine /Western Gunfighter set which is HTF. I could have bought it outright at $189.99 but decided to try a minimal bid of $150. Ended up getting smoked and losing it at around $215. DOH!

I'm old enough to remember these when they first came out! Sadly, I didn't buy it then. I do have a set of the American printings of various "Doctor Who" novelizations, the ones that had the introduction by Harlan Ellison. I've also got various editions of the originals, including episode novelizations that came out after the original series ended. I remember "The Two Doctors" coming out in Fall 1993 with a "Thirtieth Anniversary" tag on the cover. Too bad nothing was done for the fortieth anniversary in 2003.

I got lucky on my Wolfman Pozer. I bought him a few years ago when they were blowing them out at Toy Liquidators for 15 bucks. That's around the time they were blowing out X-Plus Harryhausen figures dirt cheap and I scored a few of those as well. Toy Liquidators were part of Kay-Bee Toys and those are all gone now.

Weird how at certain times in our collecting lives we stumble on these finds that turn out to be a big deal years later when the aftermarket prices start to soar. I'm glad I bought so much of what non-collectors considered "junk" over the years. I just bought what I liked, and most of it turned out to be what other collectors like as well. When in doubt buy it. Most of my regrets are the things I didn't buy when I had the chance.

Today, I bought Tales to Astonish #96 (http://www.comics.org/issue/21373/) which was published October 1967 and in that year cost only twelve cents. I paid ten dollars for said comic and was taking it out of its bag and board in order to scan it. What happened next  taught me a valuable lesson that I will not soon forget. From this day forward, I will never foolishly think that any piece of tape sticking out from the flap of a comic book bag will never find its way onto the front of the book while its contents is being removed. Sadly, I learned this lesson the hard when I found myself faced with this scenario. My attempt to carefully remove the tape did significant damage to the blurb in the bottom right corner of the cover. What makes this unfortunate outcome more painful is the fact that just moments prior to effectively devaluing a most recent purchase I practically made the same mistake with the first appearance of Deathlok (http://www.comics.org/issue/27633/) but the consequence was much less severe. In Hindsight, even leaving the tape on the issue's surface would have been a better alternative as this Silver Age collectible now has two additional defects. I actually put more tape on to try and salvage some of the harm done to my once nice looking display piece, reducing it to a lowly reading copy by receiving the honor of what graders call an "amatuer repair". Thinking about what I could have done to prevent this mishap makes me want to cry  :'(

From this day forward, I will never foolishly think that any piece of tape sticking out from the flap of a comic book bag will never find its way onto the front of the book while its contents is being removed.

OUCH! 

What I do is fold over one end of the tape, to make it easy to remove. When I want to remove a mag, I completely remove the tape from the flap and stick it on the outside of the bag for safekeeping till I'm ready to close it.

TAPE IS THE COLLECTOR'S ENEMY!!!

Sorry for being loud but I HATE tape with a passion. As Mike stated, it's best to completely remove the tape from the flap before removing the comic/mag. I keep mine in thin mylar bags (Arklites) and instead of tape I use very small labels which come off easily. Tape leeches into mylar and becomes very hard to remove later, so it's a poor option for holding flaps.

I really despise that damn messy "security tape" on DVDs. What a crock.. most of 'em are 5-10 bucks now, and shrinkwrapped.  ::)

Today, I bought Tales to Astonish #96 ([url]http://www.comics.org/issue/21373/[/url]) which was published October 1967 and in that year cost only twelve cents. I paid ten dollars for said comic and was taking it out of its bag and board in order to scan it. What happened next  taught me a valuable lesson that I will not soon forget. From this day forward, I will never foolishly think that any piece of tape sticking out from the flap of a comic book bag will never find its way onto the front of the book while its contents is being removed. Sadly, I learned this lesson the hard when I found myself faced with this scenario. My attempt to carefully remove the tape did significant damage to the blurb in the bottom right corner of the cover. What makes this unfortunate outcome more painful is the fact that just moments prior to effectively devaluing a most recent purchase I practically made the same mistake with the first appearance of Deathlok ([url]http://www.comics.org/issue/27633/[/url]) but the consequence was much less severe. In Hindsight, even leaving the tape on the issue's surface would have been a better alternative as this Silver Age collectible now has two additional defects. I actually put more tape on to try and salvage some of the harm done to my once nice looking display piece, reducing it to a lowly reading copy by receiving the honor of what graders call an "amatuer repair". Thinking about what I could have done to prevent this mishap makes me want to cry  :'(

I feel your pain my friend. On the rare occasion, I will receive a figure in mint condition inside the original box. Sometimes while trying to find a spot for it or even if I want to re arrange items in the monster room, there will be accidents. Like I'll put the box on the floor while clearing off some space on a shelf. Then something will fall off the shelf and drop on the box making a mark or a dent. Actually, this happens to me often, so I don't mess with the stuff in the monster often. Seems like when I try to re arrange or do something in there, something gets damaged.

Use Scotch "Magic" tape.

Use Scotch "Magic" tape.

I like to keep tape as far away from my books as possible. Those little labels are much less likely to cause problems. I believe in the idea that if something can go wrong it eventually will, so I like to avoid the possibility of problems.

Arrived in today's mail (not by TARDIS). 3.75" Tenth Doctor in Blue Suit, with sonic screwdriver and figure stand. Still hoping they do a Ninth Doctor in this scale, and then start going through the classic Doctors. We need more companions, too. Rose, Donna, Martha, and Sarah Jane. Definitely need more monsters, especially a Davros!

I probably went a little overboard considering my lack of space, but I was bitten by the blowmold bug with Halloween looming. Calling it quits now except for maybe a couple of the different types of smaller haunted houses. I really like the green ones and the thick one by Empire from '69:

Just have to lie in wait for the right deal. Probably wait until well after H'ween for better prices. I'm in no hurry for the additional haunted houses.

This guy came in the mail today.  Does anyone have any info on him? I've tried searching every combination of "1998/terminator/cyborg/robot/figure" and nothing came up besides his eBay listing. He's 5 ¾" high and marked 1998 RCI Universal Studios. The sculpting and paint job is pretty impressively detailed.  The pistol is removable, and after unwrapping him and inspecting him, HIS SKIN PEELS OFF!! How cool?! AND - the skull and spinal cord detach!  It looks like maybe he had other skin pieces as well, and maybe covers on his legs, there's little pegs on the sides of his knee.  For $4.50 I couldn't resist.

That was especially true in the days before laser scanning technology. Even then, it was still difficult to get the really small, 3.75" figure likenesses. Character Options has been doing a really great job with their "Doctor Who" 3.75" female figures. Their Amy Pond and Clara Oswald are spot on! Can't wait for a Rose Tyler and Sarah Jane Smith in 1/18 scale.

I want to thank Jim for reminding me about the Universal Monster Glassware. When I saw your post I immediately  called my local Spencer's too inquire if they had a set. Thankfully they did. When I went to pick them up the salesperson ask if I knew about the Frankenstein throw they also had. I had vaguely remembered seeing this also on the board here but had totally had forgotten about it. So I puchased it also. So all in all it was a great day for monsters. :D (http://images.tapatalk-cdn.com/15/10/16/5d60e3892d018abcc8b000672111eb1f.jpg)(http://images.tapatalk-cdn.com/15/10/16/44e652bf30d271d394898cb2e6f42f09.jpg)(http://images.tapatalk-cdn.com/15/10/16/8af08ce807331e5b1ac81b39fc222007.jpg)

I agree, but the bank I was referring to is one of those ultra rare '60s items that's quite expensive when they ever turn up. A top company (probably Japanese) could produce blow mold Big Frankies and clean up. They could do bank versions too, but I'm more interested in just the accurate BM figure. Lotta BM freaks out here (of which I'm one).

OK here he is as per your request.  Plz note he is a bit taller, had to lean him back to get him to stand up, as he is wet. 'Note some definition is lost. Since he can shrink down again and then grow larger again, I need to see what he looks like after several cycles of shrinking down and growing larger. Will he just become a blob without much definition at all ?

Actually it feels like hard plastic with a little bit of flex on the outside layer.
My first item that grows in water and shrinks down to original size without water.
I expected much more of a big sponge feel.
Experiments shall continue to find out more about this strange creature.

Yes, Mike - easy to picture it splattering (or at least bouncing) on the ground in true water balloon fashion.
It's made from some strange compound - that needs some online research.

Most of them are nice playset figures. If I ever do another custom monster playset it will probably include a few of these. I would have to order another tube if I did that since I want one complete example for my collection.

We scored a bag of several dozen of the dinosaurs and a bag of several dozen of the ponies at Target for a buck each! We knew immediately that they'd be ideal for the Halloween treat bags we were planning.

 :)

Sadly the Target stores in Canada closed up after barely eighteen months of operation. Worse yet Target had taken over the Zellers stores in Canada and the Zellers store in our neighbourhood carried a huge stock of Halloween candy and was therefore the place to go for Halloween candy. Without the Zellers store  to keep the supermarkets and drug stores in the neighbourhood honest, there are no longer huge markdowns on Halloween candy the day before Halloween!  The other retailers have no problem selling basically all their stock by Halloween so they aren't compelled to mark things down! Bummer.

They would be fun to paint. They would also be good for tabletop gaming with the right rules. I would use some in another custom monster playset. All of these things would be cool for me with an extra tube. I just always like to have one complete example in nice condition and keep it that way for my collection. Sometimes I feel more like an archivist than a collector, but I just feel compelled to keep one example of each thing "as new".

Ciné Art offered a number of ways to go with their Frankenstein busts.  I have one of the 3-ring sales binders from Ciné Art.


The Wholesale Prices:

1.  The unassembled kit sold for $360.00 ea. for 2-4 pieces. (2 piece min.)  It sold for $295.00 for 5 pieces or more.
2.  Assembly and painting of the kit was offered by Ciné Art for $400.00 more.
3.  "Full Painted Bust" was available in the 250 Limited Ed. painted & signed by Gino Acevedo for $900.00.

Suggested Retail Prices:

1.  The unassembled kit - $595.00.
2.  Assembly & painting - no quote
3.  "Full Painted Head Bust" - $1700.00.


The Limited Ed. of 900 Resin 1:1 busts evidently also encompassed the optional hand-painted bust done by Gino Acevedo, which would be limited to 250.  (I'm sure none of these numbers were ever reached, otherwise they would be all over eBay.)  I just got one of the 250.  It is inscribed #153 of 900 and is signed by Acevedo with an electric pen.


I was pretty happy to find this example of the "Full Painted Head Bust" listed on eBay with a starting bid of $599.00 - with free shipping:


(https://c2.staticflickr.com/6/5758/22134650183_6ea98c90e1_c.jpg)


I was even happier when no one else bid!  This darn thing probably sold for a "discounted" $1495.00 when it was issued.

My picture doesn't do it justice.

In my opinion this still remains the best Karloff Frankenstein bust ever produced. Congrats on a fantastic score Monsters For Sale! I have the smaller version that I bought from the Johnson Smith catalog. Interesting thing about those is that the ones I've seen from Spencer's have glossy black hair and base. Mine has flat black hair and base.

If you pick up a copy of Dr. Shockers Vault of Horror DVD there's a nice piece on the Imagineering company that was responsible for the Cine-Art busts and offers some good information from the creators on the Cine-Art pieces.

So my son comes home today with this little gift for dear ole dad. Says "It has Shock Monster" and "The Ghoul" on it.  I've trained him well considering he's only 16 years old.

Kinda hard to search for these by size.  Poor quality control on these means actual measurements can vary quite a bit - but, basically they were aiming for 8", 18" and 24" plush toys.

Just the ones I really, really like. I'm not very fond of the Super Deformed version of the 1989 Batmobile, so I usually skip it whenever it gets reissued. I also don't collect the larger scaled HW, because it's just too much money, plus I don't have anywhere to display them.

I'll be selling a bunch of mine next year. I have too many duplicate figures. Some were bought with the intent of customizing them. Since arthritis in my hands prevents me from doing those customs, now, it makes no sense to hang on to them. Fortunately, many are still carded.

There were 2of each sitting on a shelf. These were the best representations. The other Wolfman had the bottom corner torn and the Frank was bent all to heck. Both Creatures were decent.

ThinkGeek had a one-day sale where it was 50% off plus free shipping, otherwise I never could have afforded this guy.

   Just wanted to chime in for a second and say, not only do I love checking out everyones newest gets, I like to hear when someone gets, lets call it, a "deal". Like finding something on Evilbay cheap, or at a yardsale, or half off sales. I don't know why, I just think its cool  because Im sure all of us have paid up for certain things that we really wanted or just couldn't find cheap, its nice to hear success stories. Guess it gives me motivation lol. I know I will spend weeks and months wanting something and just waiting, searching until the right priced one comes along. Sometimes it do, sometimes it don't.

That's why I like to share great deals I find.  It lets the other members know they should not give up.  There are still deals out there to be had.

My favorite of all time was another member who said he found a clean Clinton Frankenstein Bucket atop a pile of trash by the curb!

Still, when so many people in the world have to struggle to get enough to eat, it's hard to be cranky about not having enough space for all the stuff I can afford to buy.

Space is a problem for me also. But when the kids got married and moved out I expanded my Universal Room by cleaning out the side of the basement and knocking down the wall and making one large room 16 x 40.  My collection is a result of a lifetime of collecting but I do miss the kids. Only get to see them on weekends because of everyone's work schedule. Like the rest of you I am sure, wall space is even a bigger problem. I have run out of room to put stuff on the walls. I might have to build a west wing just to get more wall space to finish hanging the pictures I have left.

I like these crude little figures.

They remind me of the typical Japanese toys that were sold in the '50's, when I was a kid.  That was back when "Made In Japan" stamped on the bottom of a product meant "Cheap and Inferior". 

Toys with detailing like Sideshow's 8-inch figures would have would have astounded '50's kids.


I also like the fact that these were sold blind, in identical boxes.  You either had to buy a whole case, or know another person who was buying these and trade your duplicates.

I was told that these were marketed by a Japanese candy company.  But I have never seen an unopened box.  Was there actually candy inside with the figure - à la baseball cards and gum?

Oddly enough, the character name is marked on the outside of the package for this series.  The white square above the picture of the Frankenstein's monster figurine lists figure C. 狼男, which is the Wolf Man. If I remember correctly, these did have a hard milk candy in them. The series was an exclusive to a Japanese department store.

Funny you should say that, my original set of these were bought by a friend of a friend's grandmother the day they went on sale in Tokyo. She gamely trekked out to pic them up for us, but ended up getting doubles of the Wolf Man (C) and one less of the Mole Man (G). Not because she didn't read Japanese, she was a native speaker, but because the lettering was too small for her to read clearly!

Japanese candy is something else.  We have Asian markets all around where I live.  I appreciate much of their rice crackers and cookies, and even things like dried squid (think fishy-tasting jerky) - but I have never quite got the hang of enjoying what the Japanese think of as "candy".

Yea they are pretty cool. I seen them a while ago on eBay, someone was selling all of them individually.
  I picked up a couple of them at a toy show, so I figured little by little I would get them as I see them. It's a challenge to find the rest of them at a reasonable price.

Had they done color variants?  I know Hot Topic has had exclusive stuff for some of the Mystery Mini sets, but I think this one only had variants for The Crow and the Gremlin.  Nosferatu and the Fly were rarer ones, so I was happy to get them. 

The Metaluna Mutant was from the first Sci-Fi series, and he was one of the big rares, but no one seemed to know who he was, or cared, and he ended up being an easy score.

There's a b&w Hitchcock and I *think* (knowing how dangerous that is) and b&w Nosferatu. I had no idea the Mutant was uncommon, but I'm glad it wasn't expensively popular!

Hitchcock and Cthulhu had the variants in the specialty store set.  That's the one comic shops, toys r us, and so on carry. Pretty much the standard set.

There's a b&w Hitchcock and I *think* (knowing how dangerous that is) and b&w Nosferatu. I had no idea the Mutant was uncommon, but I'm glad it wasn't expensively popular!

I misremembered.  He's a 1/24, not a 1/72 like I thought.  Those were the Mars Attacks! Martian and Rocketeer.  But I guess he'd be considered an uncommon.  As far as I know, there's only one Nosferatu, but the colors they chose are muted enough that he could easily pass for either.  Nowhere close to the warm colors Sideshow dressed him in.

'Saw this today and purchased it immediately. I may buy another one just to enjoy detail painting the zombie and his brain. The game comes with a special zombie game, so it's more than just standard Yahtzee. The special zombie dice has pictures on it, such as a hand grenade, a med kit and a zomie head.

A package arrived today for something I almost forgot I had ordered. BBC Shop had a one-day BOGO sale just before Xmas, and I ordered two "Doctor Who" TARDIS key pendants. Regularly $14.95, got two for that price. They appear a bit smaller than past, unlicensed versions by Spirit of Light™ and 1-800-TREKKER. These are fully licensed and based on the version used by the Seventh and Eighth Doctors in 1996's "Doctor Who: The Movie." (Which were actually recasts of the 1-800-TREKKER version, as the BBC had lost the original prop, designed by Jon Pertwee.)

Remember the "big head" statues, "Headliner XL", that were the foreunners of "Headknockers"? They did a 1999 statue for "Rocky Horroer Picture Show" and included Rocky himself.

Creature at the Ritz, 2013 (https://flic.kr/p/egFsKW) by Ian McLean (https://www.flickr.com/photos/therinofandor/), on Flickr

A few months ago, I bought an Uncle Gilbert (from "The Munsters") to accompany my "Creature from the Black Lagoon" action figures.

I think I may have already shared this slideshow of my Mego-style Creech attending a 2013 theatrical premiere of the 3D version in Sydney, Australia, but I've now added to it - because Uncle Gilbert coincidentally attended a theatrical screening of "Munster, Go Home!" in the same cinema.

I think so. I had the blue/teal ones as a kid. They had ".10" stamped in ink on the base. My parents bought all of those Marx figures for my brother & me at Thrifty's. I would love a complete blue set (if anyone has extras, I'll pay the hefty price for them).

Not much. The only problem is that it's hard to detect repros. The blue ones pictured look like a different shade than the originals (but that could be due to lighting). Also, many are missing claws or fingers, mask, etc.. I'll check it out. I would just love to find someone who is selling their mint original set, rather than buy one here & one there.

He stands up or sits on his bike. Maybe I will give him to a biker friend.

BUT ....... what is he called ?

No, the Black Ranger is a good guy. There are all sorts of Rangers in the Power Rangers pantheon, now. This might be from the rangers based on the zodiac signs, the Taurus Ranger (hence the bull horns).

'Gotta photo of an old rare Halloween skeleton tonight. 'Just one toe missing. 'Appears to be made of thin metal. I did not touch it to verify what it is made of. Isn't it grand to live in a neighborhood where nobody takes each other's Halloween stuff? Even when the guy is almost trying to irritate folks with how long his display remains lit. His backyard is also lit up every night, but it's a tall fence to block seeing everything. This is a neighbor who STILL has his Halloween decorations up and this photo was taken JAN 26, 2016. Each year I find a house in my neighborhood that has kept the Halloween torch burning and take a photo.
Perhaps The Batman should visit this neighbor early one evening and give him some kind of prize.

a week before 10/31 until today 1/26 and I will watch to see how many more days he keeps his Halloween stuff out. He is someone I need to meet, indeed.     CHEERS everyone.

After almost three months, I finally got a replacement for my 5.5" Twelfth Doctor action figure. (The original figure I received had some warping where the right arm bicep attaches to the upper arm.) Anyway, I was finally able to take some nice photos of him. Background is one of Entertainment Earth's exclusive Action Stage dioramas, #15 "Space Sucks!"

I can't decide if I'm happy with the new 5" figures.  I'm happy they're doing them again, and the likeness on them is surprisingly excellent, but the doctor looks the worst out of all of them, and what episode is this outfit from? 
Title: Re: Latest Gets?
Post by: Count_Zirock on January 28, 2016, 04:07:29 AM
It's his basic outfit, minus the matching vest. I don't know why they didn't do the vest on the 5.5" scale, but did it for the 3.75" figure. What's really weird is that the upcoming 3.75" purple-shirted 12th Doctor has had the vest removed.

To the best of my knowledge, the only other upcoming 3.75" Twelfth Doctor figure is the space-suited one from "Kill the Moon" (Series 8).(http://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20160128/3ca32ec7e53619a579e313a7767440e4.jpg)

I'm not thrilled with the doctors.  They're just painting the one outfit into facsimiles of others he's actually worn.  The polka dot shirt is supposed to be his moth eaten sweater that he wears under his hooded jacket.  I do hope we get the space suit version in 5".  Hopefully with a helmet.  I'm also hoping for the newer cybermen, strax, Jenny, vastra, and more.  The last few seasons are full of characters that would lend themselves well to toys.

Post by: Count_Zirock on January 28, 2016, 05:11:07 PM
I'd really like to see the 3.75" line expanded to include other Doctors, especially the War Doctor and Ninth Doctor. Also would love to see a 3.75" Davros that could be removed from his life support chair.

Yeah, the "polka dot" shirt didn't even have a collar. I think it was an old T-shirt he wore over a white undershirt. It would be nice if they did the proper hoodie-under-the-coat sculpt. Either in 3.75" or 5.5". They could do a 3.75" "The Magician's Apprentice" two-pack with Davros and Twelve in the hoodie, checkered pants, and sonic sunglasses!
