I know these have been around for awhile, but I finally picked up a Bela Lugosi as Dracula Halloween blowmold on eBay:

Cool records guys! Love the japanese cover!
Got a few finger monster jigglers this week, had one or two of these exact monsters as a kid.



Where did you land these, Chris?

I have been told that this is a licensed item from 1998.  Did they make any other Uni Monsters?

Yep, it's licensed. As far as I'm aware, it's the only licensed Universal Monster blowmold.

Hi Bogey,
I got them from ebay UK - about 2 are the early 70s versions, the rest are the late 70s /early 80s copies or recasts that were about when I was a kid.

Ah, I guess that's why there aren't any for the rest of the Universal Monsters, then.

I just got in 9 of the Crestwood House monster books from the 2nd series.
Also pictured is a medium sized Jaymar Frankenstein puzzle I picked up.

Then there's also this batch of random stuff.




Here's a closeup of the little rubber gorilla/Kong





Here is a closeup of the weird rubber alien




And a closeup of the Frankenstein necklace. I think these were discussed in another thread. It's a soft hollow head on a black plastic necklace. Did they do other monsters? Bobby, I'm sure you know! ;)

Yes, those Crestwood books are a nice score.  That rubber gorilla looks like the Salt Vampire from Star Trek or Flukeman from X-Files with that mouth and those lips, lol.

I think that Frankie is a 'Wear a Weirdo' - there was a kong and I think a shrunken head. They're great, I've always wanted a set of them!
