A few years ago I had this Hulk bank chock full of pennies and it was pretty heavy.

Funny how at the wane of the monster craze, when this stuff was common and cheap, I don't recall us having any of them (the Christmas blowmolds, yes). So...

For a second I thought it was either Ernest Borgnine or Brian Dennehy.

Great pic Vandor. I bet the kids really like walking up to a house like that. I know I would have 40 years ago.

Wonder why there weren't more Monster Blow Mold Yard Lights back during the 60s Monster Craze?  Or even in the 70s?  Today we have the Lugosi Dracula and a cartoonish Drac and Frank, but where are the Wolfman, Mummy, Creature, etc.  I 'd kill for a 4 ft. lighted Glenn Strange on my front lawn!!  I truly believe these would sell during the Halloween season at Target, WalMart, Kmart, etc.

The Hobo Jack O'Lantern blowmold on the left is a reproduction that Matt Jaycox was kind enough to pick up for me a few years ago. The hobo on the right is a vintage Empire piece I found last week at a local consignment shop. He just needs a replacement cord so he can help his brother light my living room this Halloween ;)

This is my Bela Lugosi as Dracula blowmold. He usually lurks in my bedroom where he's safe from sunlight, but this time of year I have him peering out my living room window at night, preparing to hypnotize trick-or-treaters into giving us their candy ;)

I love this retro look, and have been wanting to do this as well-but lack the windows not already obligated
