Tom,

Where did you find those faces?  I want them so badly.  They look just like the awesome Rubies masks from the early 1990s. 
If anybody can tell me where these are being sold, I'd greatly appreciate it.

Thanks, Tom.  I don't have a Halloween Express.  Maybe they will show up somwhere else next year.

I saw this at one of those Halloween USA stores near me (Chicagoland/suburbs). It's one of those pictures that changes appearance when you look at it from different angles. Cool medusa!






Couldn't get the proper angle with the camera to make all the snakes in the first pic disappear, but in real life, it worked perfectly!

I made a shopping trip to Bowling Green, Ky on Monday and made a few lucky finds. At the Party One store I found this guy:

Yep, it's the Sonic Vampire of song and legend ;) Here's a shot of him "flying" in my room:

and a side shot:

After three tries, I was actually able to catch his green eyes in mid-flicker:

And just to bore you further, a few shots of his original box:



After picking up this guy, I stopped at a Walgreen's to see what they had in the Halloween section. The only thing of interest was a buttload of old stock Universal Monsters candles. I picked up one of each:

Sadly, they had no Brides or Draculas, though.

Tom, i'm in NJ as well. What town was this Halloween Express in? I'd love to have those lights for my new collection room...

OK I think I finally found something cool enough to put on this thread, here's my 1991 Hamilton plastic Creature I got on ebay.  I have seen these before on Ebay but I don't think I have seen it on UMA before.  (is it too new, at 18 years old for the battle-hardened, grisled UMA crew?)  Anyway, I would have gotten one a long time ago if I had any idea how cool and GINORMOUS this thing is, as you can see in the photo it TOWERS over my 8" AHI figure (included for size reference), it is 14 inches tall, and I even think it is sort of cool that the head is 1/2 the size it oughta be.  It would be like me walking aroung with a head the size of a two year old. Any ideas what the deal with that is??  I was the only bidder at $24.99 plus shipping, and it came sealed in the original bag, and even has the original price tag on it.  The bag has on little slice in it I think to see the tag.  It also came in the original box.  Should I keep it in the bag, or would you guys mind if I opened it to play with it and display it?  I am sort of glad I don't have a collection of carded MIP figures cause I would wanna open them to play with them. 

Let me know anything I should know about this guy or just what you think of him.  Thanks

Poor sculpting.

I was the only bidder at $24.99 plus shipping, and it came sealed in the original bag, and even has the original price tag on it.  The bag has on little slice in it I think to see the tag.  It also came in the original box.  Should I keep it in the bag, or would you guys mind if I opened it to play with it and display it?

$24.99 was the MSRP as I remember it. You should definately open it, more fun that way and nothing particularly unique about the package. Fun, large toy to have. Imagine if the sculpt had been worth a damn.

I think he's quite cool....I don't have a collection yet so I know nothing of what's worth value and what isn't, but I think this creature is awesome looking & quite large  ;) I would definitely take him out of the package (seeing how it isn't in a cool box, just a plastic bag)....they are always more fun to display that way anyways!
