No actor's license, immense popularity, aesthetically pleasing...no brainer.

That assumes there are brains at work, here.  ;D

I know!  It was a horrible choice.  Not buying these.  A Lugosi would've swayed me... and maybe a Wolf and Creech... but yeah...  That Lugosi and Chaney ain't happening.
WHY AREN'T THEY EXPLOITING THE CREATURE? No actor's license, immense popularity, aesthetically pleasing...no brainer.

Here are the other two Xmas offerings to complete the "six" 5" relief sculpts he mentions.  Don't know if he still has any of these for sale.


          Boris Karloff Frankenstein - Santa


           Creature From the Black Lagoon - Santa

Hep, thank you very much for that exhaustive photo-essay on the slot car tracks.  I really appreciated the undersides but I'd never considered these tracks would have been manufactured by a few companies.  Then I realized that made perfect sense.  If there were national or regional competitions, the tracks would need to have at least semi-standardized curves and banking, guard-rail settings, so all contestants would be familiar with those details.

And from a manufacturing standpoint, the curvature of rails and wooden tracks require a precision that would be so expensive and time-consuming unless it was done with pre-existing molds and tools.  You just couldn't keep recreating the wheel, so to speak.

I've enjoyed the Dave & Buster type racetracks (large, multi-screen, side-by-side drivers) but, compared to go-kart racing, in person, or even on jet-ski's - videogames won't get my quarters.  I wonder how I'd have reacted to the constant 'cars flying off track-rails' issue?

Jeff has added another to his 5" Xmas resin relief sculpts:


                  Frankenstein Conquers the World - Santa


If you want these, get them now.  These are being made in very limited numbers.

Well, to be fair, there were those Creature fish tank toys from China a few years back, and those turned out to be real.  I didn't buy one, because I didn't trust it, but I think people did eventually get their fish tank toys.  It's just sad that there are people out there who are willing to take advantage of people, especially in a hobby that's supposed to be fun.  Frankly, I don't think the scammers in China even know the first thing about this hobby, though, so I guess they couldn't care less.
