I was only there for a couple days.  I'm out to sea again, and won't be back this way for a long while, per my schedule.

Here's a pic of the Frankensttein one:





I really like these balls.  I wouldn't mind putting a set in the UMA Display one of these years.  They look surprisingly classic, given the "mad balls" format.  I thought they were 80s.  Is it certain they are 90s?  Wasn't the mad balls fad a late 80s thing?

I have a set of the Illco Monster Balls. I remember buying them when they first came out. They are 80s items. Late 80s.

I got a few bits and bobs this week, a few toys from ebay lots - I've got the wolfman to go with that Mummy, I can't remember who made them, but I really like these little guys, there's more on them here: http://www.universalmonsterarmy.com/forum/index.php?topic=292.15

Also, I found these candy containers - I've had these for about 10 years, they were lost in my attic. They're pretty cool, and glow!

I love the Wear A Weirdo necklaces, there's a kong and wolfman also - very cool, shame it's not still in its packet with the header card - the artwork was very, very nice:

Do you have a hard time finding an athletic supporter that fits??

Here's some stuff that I've acquired recently (that weren't posted about in other threads).



The "Outer Limits vs Twilight Zone" thread sent me to Ebay and I managed to score two Sideshows I was missing for good prices ($10 & $15). That "Renzi" Kong is a brown bootleg. And for good or bad, I guess I'm now known as the "pink Kong guy" so a friend of mine decided I had to have the pink colorway of the Marusan Giant Gorilla re-issue and gave it to me.

After many long years, I finally scored this bad boy on eBay a couple of weeks ago:

My mother bought me one of these in a department store in Bowling Green, KY back in 1973, and he was always my favorite jiggler. I was thrilled to finally get a new one to replace my long departed friend.

Congratulations on the dragon.  He's a nice example.
