Aurora cutout hang-ups
« on: June 29, 2008, 08:08:09 PM »
Don't know if these have been discussed before. These were given to me by a friend whose father worked in a hobbyshop and was a bit of a pack rat. The art is the same size as the cover, but is printed on both sides (the opposite side, as shown, is printed in reverse). The art is separated from the background so there is a white outline, and the figures are diecut. I don't know if the Mummy originally had text at the bottom, but the bottom edge looks as if it was diecut at the same time as the figure. Does anyone else have the other figures, or know which ones were done like this? Apparently they were sent to hobbyshops by Aurora to hang up as promotion decorations.

Thanks Chris for sharing. I have seen these before. Not sure how many different promos were made? Very cool though! And rare too.

Thanks Mike. Any idea what others were done - Creature or Wolf Man? I've only seen Frankenstein before...

They are off of an Aurora mobile, which is why there are holes in their heads.

These are the only ones I've seen. I assume there were others?

They are useless pieces of cardboard. Just send Care of HHWolfman.  ;D

A mobile? Cool. I'd love to see a photo of an old hobby shop turn up with an Aurora monster mobile hanging in the background!

ChrisW, your Mummy originally had text at the bottom. I've seen pix of the Frankenstein, Dracula, Wolf Man, Mummy, Creature, Phantom and Hunchback mobiles, all had the black box with logotype, text, Aurora logo, etc... I think I have those pix around here in a file somewhere, I'll post if I find them.

No problem, glad to share! Can't seem to find the Phantom (maybe I saw that pic in a mag/Aurora book and not online?), but here are all the others - enjoy!
