Thanks, guys.  Anytime you are ever in the good 'ole midwest/St. Louis area, drop me a line and pay a visit. 
Here's a few close-ups of the AHI and Lincoln monsters cases for you, gracebuster.  I've tried to collect an example of each variation/style of monster.  Still have a few to go:

What did you say your address was again Andy? And what days did you say that you were not home?  ;)

Wonderful collection! Must be something in the water down there in St. Louis?  :)

Andy has some really great rarities in there, stuff that even in the closeup pics are hard to make out.  There is a Tomland mini-Wolf Man figure in front of the Lincoln Wolf Man figures.  He has a variation on the AHI Frankenstein I've never seen anywhere else.  Really spectuacular to see all together.  Plus, it's all neat and orderly and you can walk around and see everything without tripping over something, unlike most (self included).

Thanks for the nice comments on my gallery room.  It has been a goal of mine for many years, and it's coming together. 
I think texture and color are more important than we may realize in our attraction to certain things; even monster toys.  I try my best to accentuate these elements in displaying them.  I think that's part of why I really enjoy looking at other collector's displays.  You can sometimes see the same things, but in a totally different context that makes you appreciate them even more.   
Bobby's display takes this natural, deep wood tone approach that really brings out the textural and color elements of his stuff. 
HHW's room is similar, and the incorporation of the comfy couch and TV make it a really inviting place.  Like a "den" quality, it just looks like a place that you could tune out the world and get lost in all that monstery goodness. 
Then, Dan's Dr. Shocker museum...it's really looks amazing because it has that "larger-than-life, I gotta get a ticket to this place" feel.  I'm compelled to make a pilgrimage - much like the Ackermansion.
Keep them pictures comin'!  I wanna see some Bob Morris display... ;D

I think that is a FUNWORLD hand puppet, 70's.  It went on the UMA Monster Toy Tour this past year.  Ray might know more about this toy than I do.

It is indeed just that. I happen to own a loose head from this same puppet. It wasn't until Raymond brought an intact puppet to the Toy Tour that I finally got to see how this toy (or puppet) actually looks. And to be honest, it's a toy that is NOT on the top of my list of favorite collectibles. A bit too clownish for my own liking, but then I haven't looked in the mirror in a while either.  :)
