But all kidding aside, that is a fantastic find!

Apparently you've been talking to my wife. Or my Kama Sutra instructor.

Scatter, that is a great find. Heston was as cool as cool can get. Sad that he was vilified towards the end of his life.
He was one of the greatest movie stars of any generation, no doubt about that!

Nice snag, Scatter!  Still my favorite Heston is him as Moses.  As a matter a fact, if you watch all of his films that were made after The Ten Commandments, he continues to play Moses.....even in real life, for that matter.  ;D

Looks as if your book is worth at least a shiny penny:

A friend of mine has one of these silver bullets that they gave away if you joined the NRA:



Hmmmm....now that would be extra bad news for a werewolf. ;)

The body reminds me of the original Mr. potatao head body (back when kids used an actual raw potato and pieces sharp enough to pierce a raw potato). I remeber it as yellow, but this looks like it was home-painted.

Frank head--no idea.

Someone on ebay makes and sells them as a retro-nostalgia Frankenstein figure he calls, "Mr. Frankenstein".

Some more charms for the charm chest:


Yo!  Unknown Primate, as is this charm. ;D  Have seen it called a caveman, white goriilla, but I like to think of it as a Yeti.



Liked this skull due to the fact that it has rhinestone eyes.  I am sure many were "picked" out by kiddos.   The skull is smaller than the head of FDR on the dime.


Chinese dragon.   Still has some paint.  Like the other two, the material is celluloid.
