Love this stuff. In fact, it's given me an idea. We should have a monster fireworks show at the next UMA Toy Tour appearance. After everyone has enjoyed staring at all the beautiful toys all weekend, we'll blow 'em all to bits in a blaze of Franken Popper glory! That's what I call 'going out with a bang'! It will be just like the finish of Bride Of Frankenstein. Raymond will look at me and hiss, and I will light the fuse while uttering .. "we belong dead"!

Ahh, something tells me and my toys will be absent that day.  ;)  Gee Terry, why stop at Poppers, lets just obtain some bazookas and blow em' all to kingdom come.  ;D

Robert my friend. You won't be absent that day, you'll be there providing us with the heavy artillery. You've shown us all that you have the right stuff.  We'll start off small with some Werewolf firecrackers, and then we'll kick it up a notch with the M-80s. Plastic will be melting all over the place. It will be nirvana complete with seven promised virgins.

Not really a find, but I did just get it back this week from The Mask Doctor. So I guess it counts.

Don Post Moon Fan, foam filled with eye inserts added.

Morning, noon, or night, Anytime . . . . the count may strike. If you're caught you have to linger, Cause Dracula may bite your finger!

DT,

That Moon Fan is beautiful.  I know about filling masks with foam for longevity, but not too much about the process or the restorers who specialize in it.  The Mask Doctor is Kelly Mann, correct?  Anyone point me to any good online resources for learning more about masks or feel like writing it up here?

Shannon,
The best place to get info on all things "mask" is the HMA forum: www.thehma.net
Most of the guys in the business hang around there, and you can soak up a lot of knowlege from them.

Very cool, lc!  I think if you look on the back you'll see a date of 1969.  Is that the character copyright, or the ring date?  I put a pic of them in the 60's section of the archive because of the date.  Were they really 70's rings?


Nice Moonfan, Doc!

I'll have to check into that...

I found an ad for them in Eerie around 1975 and the ad made them out to be new.

They were offered by themselves and not part of the Fan Club premiums...so, it may be a copyright date of 69.

Thanks for the comments.

Just scored this car shifter knob off ebay.. they guy does other shifter knobs, and other unimonster ones as well, but I wanted to see the size and quality before ordering others.

I'll report back on this once it arrives...

I love to see how they look on a shifter.  I'd like to get my brother.   Keep us posted please.

I don't have many posters yet, but I just got this lobby card for what I consider to be a steal ($36, frame not included). I remember really liking this movie as a kid.
