Love the candles!!! Mine probably doesn't have them as I didn't see them there around Halloween time. Sucks.

Hello!!!

I go to upload several pics of my lasts adquisitions.

This is not exactly a new ad, because I have the Motorized Monster Maker since several years ago, but was the last mounth when I created 2 of the Ogres of the Basic first Kit... Are these guys...



This one I bougth near 1 year ago, but still I have not paint it. Very familiar for all the UMA members and. I think that all the guys here have it :-)



Here  Monster Kit of the years 60's, or Maybe is from 1959. I am not totally sure...


The famous Monsters Box, that also all the people here have it, I also made it for myself, follow the instructions from here :-)


This guy is also well know as "Count Creepyhead", this is the spanish version...



The She Creature:




Bump in the Night Boardgame:




Some Halloween Items:



Shooter Game of "Los Monstruos del Castillo" very hard to find game, is incomplete :-(



Drac Bat, 1985 Dracula Doll




Trick 'R Treat Action Figure:



My Ideal Mini Monsters. Wolfie was nude, but I made his clothes :-) What do you think?



These statures, are creatures from the Mythology of the North of Spain, I think that are cool!!!



And finally, this is me, with a Hanging Halloween Prop Skeleton.

It's all way too cool. Those Spanish mythological statues render me speechless. I wish my name was Count Creepyhead, Thanks for sharing your stuff with us.

Great you liked it the Creatures. The Spanish Folklore is very strong in the North of Spain, and if you go there, you can see toons of these creatures in all the stores, are very popular there, but hard to find in other places of Spain, only in Cantabria, Asturias and Galicia.

Yes, the Target game is Great!!! You Andy already knows the Spanish Airgam Monsters, This one is very hard to find, but the most hard to find is the one that you already have "Las mil caras del Monstruo".
The Target game, don't works, and some pieces are missing, anyway the design is pretty cool. Every day I try to search the rest of the Airgame games that I haven't, but is impossible :-( Other very very hard to find is the Pinball Monsters game.

I have a friend that have all, in these days, I will upload pics with the rest of the Airgam games :-)

I've been a fan of the Airgam stuff for a long time.  The artwork is beautiful, like nothing else.  I would love to see some pics of the rest of the games!

Great finds everyone!! I had that Motorized Monster Maker with the Ogres too!! I chose that over the Remco Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea Seaview set (that set is worth a fortune now!) on my 6th birthday!

This could be in the Crypticon thread but it's also a weekly find. As you may have read, in another thread, I had the pleasure of attending Crypticon with Scary Terry Beatty also of the UMA. As fine a safari companion as one could ask for! We split up to divide and conquer the dealer room and I scored a Neca Phantom and a nice ERB Tarzan LP. Then I saw this box and thought at first it was one of my Holy Grail items - A Stretch Armstrong Stretch Monster - but closer I saw it was what I call the worlds largest Frankenstein jiggler! Who could resist this face?


Then when I got him home I opened the front flap and realized this fella has never been out of the box -



The outside of the box is slightly worn but inside is like new, the cellophane is tight and has what they call "collect these amazing cards" are still sealed. He's no Stretch Armstrong Monster but I don't have many minty packaged toys and you know what they say: "All are welcome all are welcome".

I like the Stretch Screamers very much.  A great lineup of big, fun monster toys.  I think kids will remember them fondly when they grow up.

I picked up a few sentimental favorites recently. First up is a pair of Tomland figures, the Yeti and the Cyclops:

The Cyclops is missing his jacket and scarf, but I got a great price on the pair. I never owned any Tomlands as a child, but I do distinctly remember seeing the original four Tomland Famous Monsters of Legend hanging on the pegs at a drugstore in Indianapolis circa 1976. I really wanted them, but never had any until I got my first computer and started buying online. At one point I owned a large collection of Tomland figures, but sold them off several years ago. I've been finding myself watching Tomland auctions alot lately, which is a sure sign that I'll probably be actively seeking them out more in the future.
Next up is an old friend that I finally managed to repurchase, the Ben Cooper Frankenstein jiggler:

I bought one of these around thirty years ago at the old Five and Dime in Tompkinsville, KY. Tompkinsville is a tiny farming community not far from the Tennessee border, and it's the town where my grandparents lived for most of their adult lives. I believe it was on a visit to their home that I got my jiggler. The Five and Dime used to be a wonderland of jiggler dump tables and shelves filled with Aurora Glow models, and I have many happy memories of browsing the shelves there as a kid. Sadly, my childhood Frankenstein suffered a tragic injury within an hour of my buying him: my dumb cousin bit off one of his hands! I kept him for years afterward, but the missing hand always bugged me.
Grandma Ramsey died earlier this year. She was my last living grandparent, and the one I miss the most. Somehow tracking down this goofy ol' Frankenstein jiggler reminds me of those years when she'd humor me by pretending to be scared of my rubber monsters. It's kinda like having a little moment frozen in time, when I was young and had grandparents who loved me and humored my affection for monsters.

A very good chance! I'll post a picture of both sides this evening. I think in the Crypticon thread there's a picture Terry took. Thanks for asking. From what I can tell there are many TARZAN fans here.
