The 8-inch AHI's from the 1970's are probably the Holy Grail of monster toys. I yearn for something that's never been (yet), that being toys &/or slot cars based on the monster hot rod models.

Those Funko Force monster figures are awesome! They're new & unique, yet they have more retro appeal to me than any recent monster toys I've seen in several years. They're still available on Amazon, & reasonable.

The Marx Frank , Creature , Mummy and Wolfman Mexican repro's in the crazy cool colors. Took 3 years to finally get a neon Frank at a price I could afford. Also ORIGINAL MPC PopTop's. Just got outbid on the purple Witch at $41 including shipping.
I'd allday be willing to pay $25-30 a piece shipped for either of these in nice condition. hint ;) hint

AHI: Male Creature, to complete the set. The AHI Male Creature, is the most expensive.......it's a tough-e, to find at an affordable price.  Lol. REMCO: Phantom and Creature.  I don't think I really want anything else? I pretty much have found every one of my Holy Grails.......so to speak.  Although, I wouldn't mind scoring some Colorforms: aliens..

This is a really cool thread. Looking at other WANTS and HAVE TO HAVE, toys, I didn't realize how many toys existed. Wow!

A replacement for the pink ELECTRON + bendy that I don't know how I lost! (The Space Marauder mini-version of the Colorforms Alien, from Toy House.)

I've seen them, but will not pay an exorbitant price for a poor condition piece!

I did! And it use to eat at me that I couldn't collect them all! Gotta set your boundries and eventually know your limitations both in opportunities to purchase and cash reserves to purchase with. Took many years to understand that.      Buddy

Hepcat,
Do you have a picture of the Ideal Haunted House?  That sounds so intriguing. 

I'd love my Thing Maker Fright Factory

The game KaBala

I had the last two as a kid.  I loved that KaBala glowed in the dark!
