I don't think they did the shrunken head as a Wear a Weirdo.  I've got Franky, Wolf Man, King Kong and a Skull.

Ah geez I just wasn't thinking, you're right that is a Wear a Weirdo Frank. I even have one of 'em still sealed and didn't think about it! They didn't do a Shrunken Head though, only Frank, Kong, Wolf Man and a Skeleton. I still need a sealed Kong.

Sorry, I was thinking of the similar shrunken head necklaces that pop up occasionally.

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!

Besides the Tuscany Dracula, I found this cute/cool display for me, er...my daughter, er...ME!


And my brother made this haunted house of painted cardboard which is an EXACT replica of my actual house:


I absolutely love this.  The Remco 4" figures are just about the right size monsters to haunt this with.

Where did you find the McNugget display?  Both that and the house are awesome!

Thank you.  I set up at the Kane County (IL) toy show as a dealer twice a year and another vendor had this.  I had never seen this before and she tried to sell it for $70 a couple years ago.  Offered it at $35 and sold it to me for $30.  Haven't shown it to my three year old yet (who LOVES chicken McNuggets) and not sure I'm going to for a while.  I can see it getting trashed!  Thanks for the sentiments.

Good stuff, Jeff, congrats!
I got some very old Topstone Halloween masks this week.  Most of these are pictured in the 1960 Topstone catalog:
The "Fortyniner"

The "Goof"

"Pig-Tails"

and my favorite..."The Witch".  I believe this is the same one that you could order from the early issues of Famous Monsters

That cardboard haunted house is really cool, as are the Topstone masks.  I especially like the Goof.

My mother-in-law dropped by last night, and remarked that "The Goof" looks a lot like a character called "Mortimer Snerd" from her younger days.

That's a great deal on that!  Yeah, you might want to keep it hidden away for a little bit.  You don't want it to meet a Bride of Frankenstein end.
