       FRANKENSTEIN - Candle - 4.5 in. - ZombifyStudios, Ireland - 2019

Saw this candle listed on Etsy.  It was about $9.00 plus $9.00 shipping.  They showed these 3 colors but stated that since they were made on demand, I could request other colors.

Here's what I received:












I think it is moderately cool.

Another little Etsy get is this fan-produced sculpture:


FRANKENSTEIN - In Coffin - Bas Relief Sculpture - 5 3/8 in x 2 in. x 1 3/8 in. - A


FRANKENSTEIN - In Coffin - Bas Relief Sculpture - 5 3/8 in x 2 in. x 1 3/8 in. - B

I've had it for some little while, so I don't remember what it cost.  I do remember that it was surprisingly inexpensive - because it was a factor in my decision to buy.


I think I should paint the coffin brown, to make the figure stand out a little more.

This little guy was advertised as a "Cigarette Snuffer".  Probably not that odd in Universal Studios, Japan.  I think smoking is a lot more common in Asia.  If it were sold at the Hollywood studio, there would probably be protests.

It is not dated (at least in English) but the seller stated he bought it in Japan in 2015.


FRANKENSTEIN - Cigarette Snuffer - 2 in. - Universal Studios Japan - Park Exclusive - 2015




                     Do we have any members who can translate?













In spite of the seller's date, this sculpt is just like the Japan park exclusive Frankenstein Bobblehead that was sold in 2010.


I hope no one minds me taking up so much space with my posts.  I thought I would try to provide some closeup looks at some of the less common items I buy.  Auction photos tend to be small, few in number and even more out of focus than my efforts.

Saw these pewter biker rings on Etsy.  Decided I would splurge and drop $50 on the Frankenstein.

I didn't mean it that way.

It's a nice ring.  It looks kinda rough in a huge blow-up.  But even a baby's skin looks like mountains if it is enlarged enough.

Just picked up a couple of nifty monster items from eBay: a molded, metal King Kong poster and a couple of plastic Bride of Frankenstein "candy trays." When I was a kid, we had some of these plastic "candy trays" (with famous paintings like the Mona Lisa rather than monsters), but we always used them as coasters rather than candy dishes.

and a couple of plastic Bride of Frankenstein "candy trays."

Those trays came out 3-4 yrs ago from a company called "world" something or other. Somebody with a better memory than mine will tell you.

I bought an insane amount of Frankenstein and Bride stuff that year at World Market on clearance. It was almost free. Pillows, plates, platters (plastic & tin), mugs, paper napkins, coasters, bottled soda, bags and more.. I came home with it and my wife thought Id lost my mind. I tried to explain. How could I not buy such amazing stuff at such an amazing price? I figure Ill throw a huge Frankenstein party or something some day...

I did the same thing a couple of yrs ago. I have most of that stuff on display in the monster room. The tin platter is especially cool. I have the pillow too but it's covered in dog and cat hair these days  :-[
