Loved Color Forms as a kid. Never saw this one. I had a Bugs Bunny version with his underground lair.

I recently picked up a pair of AHI Monster variant figures:


As you can see, these are the cupped hands Frankenstein and the jointed wrist Dracula. Dracula is complete and in nice shape, but it looks like Frankenstein mugged someone and stole their running shoes ;) Does anyone know for sure which Frankenstein boots are correct for this variation?

George,
There is a thread somewhere around here regarding the "cupped hands" AHI variations.  Believe it or not, those are the shoes that many of them have been found with.  Here's my theory: The feet on that body style are longer than the other styles, and they do not fit into the little slippers that they used at the end of the production run.  So, they used what fit.  Yep, they are soccer cleats and I think that is honestly how they were sold.

That Glow in the Dark cartoon kit looks so familiar. Good going on finding one after all these years hhwolfman.
I did pretty good this past week with a giant lot of Tomland figures thanks to a fellow MC forum member. At one time a large majority of my stuff came from eBay but lately I've been doing a lot of networking with collectors which has been working out terrific. Nice pick ups guys and gals.

That army of TOMLAND figures is most impressive. HHWOLFMAN, never saw that Colorforms lab! Great find.


I  was gifted a few things that have been in a friend's mom's attic since they were kids.




Love all of it, but I will tell you that we spent hours playing with the BATTLING TOPS as kids.

Then it  amused Buster and his cousin, Stevie, Grace and myself for hours this weekend.

Roback - that Tomland score is awesome! Such a colorful, unique line of figures... I think I have a new collection obsession, thank you so much!

Roebuck - Battling Tops! We played that game incessantly and I had to be red each and every battle... the only board/non-video game that ever made me dizzy, and I'd still keep on playing.

Awesome 'gets', guys.

My uncle and I played Battling Tops every day when I was a kid - I love that game!  I will never forget that cool hum those tops make when you launch 'em.  Ah, the memories.

I hate to advocate drugs, alcohol, violence, or insanity to anyone, but they've always worked for me.

Battling Tops was great!  My dad and I played that a LOT!  Still have mine -- though missing a top and no box....

WEREWOLVES ON WHEELS!!  One of my favorites!  Even been thinking about starting a WOW AC (the Werewolves On Wheels Appreciation Club).
