Title: Remco Mini-Monsters Catalog Re-creation!!
Post by: StyreneDude on December 18, 2018, 06:11:51 AM
This week I finished my set of non-glow mini-monsters!

Each one was purchased sealed on a beater card so the figures are dead mint.
I was also lucky enough to find a sealed first issue non-glow play case in pristine condition.

I spent a couple hours carefully punching out all those little cardboard pieces and assembling everything,
then set it all up for this photo shoot, re-creating the 1980 JCPenney Catalog page!

I added my own text and the Remco logos, but kept the 1980 prices!
It was a blast to relive my favorite Christmas present ever! Enjoy!

Amazing how 40 years can seem like a flash when you obtain something you had as a child. Great job!!

Great Ad you've put together and congrats on completing your mint non glow run and scoring a sealed case. The case is the one thing I'm missing but one day it maybe mine!

Thanks man!  I also picked up the glow case sealed and am just two glow monsters away from complete set #2, then I'll do a glow version of the ad!

That's fantastic and I have both non glow and glow loose sets as well as a couple of carded ones although the non glow Wolfman from the set I picked up off of here a while back turned out to be a glow one. Looks like I've still got one to get but there's no rush.

Looking forward to the next ad once you're complete.
