Greetings! I haven't been posting much for weekly finds lately. A major life change plus not getting around to figuring out my mac (i-photo is NOT Photoshop!). That said, I did have some fun at a local flea market recently. First, I'm attempting to recreate a facsimile of my original Marx Prehistoric Playset, and I came across the elusive "Pot Belly T rex", no doubt made by Marx of Mexico but still prized by dino lovers. Marked fifty cents.


A bag of blow molded dinos -

A COOL shrunken head souvenir pencil!


Renzi Cornelius bank (same size as the large Renzi Kong)


And kinda weird but my brother picked up this Trendmasters big wacky Drac for me at a garage sale bless his heart.



Abuddaabuddaabuuda that's all folks!




I believe I have a Frankenstein's monster to go with your Dracula.

I was just poking around last night looking for a Strange Change Toy!  Congratulations hhwolfman! I've been looking for one, but I can't make a commitment, for some weird reason. I always refer to it as a Strange change Machine, that's what I used to call mine. Are you going to use it or leave it in the box? If you play with it, please take pictures to inspire me to get one    :)

Had the Strange Change model kit with the Vampire Casket, and wanted the Mummy/Sarcophagus.

I usually don't yearn for my old toys from the past, but I've been thinking about that smell that the Strange Change chamber had when it heated the plastic. Mmmmmm

So - there's a flea market every Sunday I've been meaning to hit but hadn't found time til today. Whaddya know - a big ol solid rubbery Creature jiggler! I think it's Mexican, nothing to support this, just by default. Here he is next to a Marx 6" figure for scale. The pic looks like his claws are chopped but it's just flash, they're all there. I like him!

Yep, that's a Mexican bootleg cast from the Aurora model.  Nice find!

I found a Monster Make-Up mag, a wild looking Kong and a jiggler from the movie "Grizzly".

Was it really a tie-in from the movie GRIZZLY?  The poster from the film is really nice with art by Neal Adams if I recall correctly.

I love the Movie Grizzly. Did it come with a tag, If that one didn't, is there a picture of it? Cool finds guys. HHW

It is a movie tie-in from that film.  It came with a tag originally, but mine doesn't have one.  I think Raymond might have one with a tag?

I love the Renzi Cornelius bank !  I used to have one, but it fell apart.
