As promised, here is a quick pic. I woke up today wondering if it was just a dream.

It's this kind of post that keeps me going, searching yard sales, thrift stores, church sales and the like... Congratulations on a great score!

Repros, but these Weird-Ohs Repulsives model kits should be fun to build.  I haven't seen these before, but I like their Rubber Uglies style.  They're listed as $10 each w/ free shipping.  But I offered $5 each for all four and the seller accepted. It looks as though theres still a a couple of each left, if anybody else wants 'em.  Here's a link to one, you can click on the seller's Other Items for the other three.

Hey! Those are reissues of the Lindberg Repulsives from the sixties:



Here are the threads that first mention the rerelease of the Repulsive line:

I'm a bit miffed that they've been relabeled Hawk Weird-Ohs though. They're far from being thematically similar to Weird-Ohs.

Here's the thread on Hawk Weird-Ohs:

Picked up this group of Best Plastics Flats (commonly known as Palmer Flats) from an eBay seller.



I needed dupes to put 1 each in my 6 Custom Halloween Boxes a UMA member offered for sale last year. Since Best didn't do a Mummy or Phantom I had to use a Frankie and Creech in those boxes (already some dupes including a Wolfman). They fit well inside the little boxes and help with the vintage '60s vibe.

I had been waiting on a good deal for these and this turned out good. It ended up being 3 bucks each. The seller mistakenly sent the package Media Mail and the PO opened it up and declared an extra 84 cents was owed for the correct First Class postage. The seller reimbursed me including what I originally paid for shipping. Worked out pretty good.
