Pepsi Party Monsters Posters
« on: July 30, 2012, 06:12:50 PM »
I have a "Want Ad" for this Item, but I'm wondering if anyone knows if it actually exists.
I recently came across the very cheesy but kind of cool posters that were from the Pepsi Party Monsters promotion in 1992 (I think).  I've got Dracula, The Mummy, The Wolf Man, Creature from the Black Lagoon and Bride of Frankenstein.
However.  I'm missing Frankenstein's Monster.  I've looked high and low for info, and all I can seem to find is the image from the back of the pepsi case it was on, but no information on this poster.  I'd ASSUME that they'd have it, and there's a complete set out there, but I really can't find any info.
Does anyone know anything about these? 
Another member said he THINKS he has the Frankenstein poster but I haven't heard anything back in a few weeks so I'm not sure.  I'm a completist and not having this piece is bugging me.  Haha.

Are you talking about the "posters" that were cut out from the back of the cases? If so Jason Liebig has some photos on flicker.

Kind of.  There are actual full sized poster versions of the first picture you posted.  I think they are 24x36 or something.

I don't own it, but I've seen the Frankenstein's Monster poster from both the Monster Match and Monster Bash releases ('91 and '92, if I remember correctly. They were promotional posters and very difficult to come by then. When the promotion started I called my local Pepsi distributor (Athens, GA at the time) and they'd already sent the meager amount of materials out to stores. Did you get your others all from one seller on eBay? There was one person several years ago who stated with multiples of each and slowly sold down. Good luck, I'll keep my eyes open for ya.

I got 3 of them from one seller.  The rest are from elsewhere.  I've been searching high and low and the closest I got was the one person here that said he thinks he has one but has been MIA for a few weeks.

Hello,
         Give me a week to track them down and I'll send you one for shipping. I know I have multiples of each, but can't recall where I got them. I just need to locate the poster tube I stored them in. PM me for more info.

Look at the commercial I found! LOL
Pepsi and Doritos Monster Match (1991)


The early 90s was when I really started getting into the monsters.  I've been actively looking for any of the promotional stuff that I can find, mainly because as corny as some of it is, it really takes me back to that time when I first discovered these awesome monsters. I actually just scored a set of 3 Universal Monsters Candy Posters on Ebay. Very cool.

Hey, I know that distributor! I used to sell UGA merchandise in front of UGA's Baptist Student Center with a couple from my church when the Bulldogs played. Would drive by that distributor every weekend to work!

Wow, those things are like looking at a train wreck.......horrendous!  I can't believe those are from 92' they scream 80's cheese.  That being said I would probably have collected them back in the day!
