Are these watches made by the same people who did the full figure Uni Monster flashlight keychains at that time?

Both were made in 1995 and were on very similar cards.  But the Keychain Flashlights were made by "Basic Fun"  and the watches were made by "Nelsonic".

Another example of "Great minds think alike"?

The boys around here call it "The Black Lagoon"; a paradise. Only they say nobody has ever come back to prove it.

By some miracle I just managed to snag this Sideshow Dracula on eBay for less than $100. ... 


Congrats!

I remember that Dracula came at the end of the Sideshow figure run.  There was a strong fear among collectors that he wouldn't appear at all.

How much is a typical price for a sealed example today?

Every buy it now option I've seen has been from $150 to $100. But you can get them from around $60 to $70 in an auction if you're lucky.

I made one bid. In the last 10 seconds. And beat the top bid by $1.

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Universal-Studios-Monsters-Dracula-Figure-by-Sideshow-Toys-/253032239304?hash=item3ae9e590c8%3Ag%3AEacAAOSw8GtZXtYT&autorefresh=true&nma=true&si=%252BG%252FLGr136iW1BNk9hg6ziaEzmY4%253D&orig_cvip=true&rt=nc&_trksid=p2047675.l2557


Nice score. I think the best Bela Dracula figure is the Sideshow Silver screen 12 inch version. Prices can get pretty high. However, about 1 1/2 years ago,  I scored a new in box one for I think around $140.

This last weekend my vintage monster arcade game lust was satiated at the Replay Amusement Museum (http://www.replaymuseum.org/) in Tarpon Springs, just north of Tampa Bay in Florida.  If you're anywhere nearby, I can't recommend this place enough - all vintage arcade games, pinball and the big cabinets, with everything on Free Play.  And for example, on Saturday, they're open from 11am to 11pm, and $13 covers you FOR THE WHOLE DAY. You get a wrist band, and you're free to come and go throughout the day.  I'm thrilled that such a treasure is right down the road.

Check their website for a list of what games they have if you're at all curious. (There were at least 4 antique shops on the same block, to help sway the wives and girlfriends.  Heck, I'll check those next time, too!)

Of course, I spent some quality time with the Creature pinball, and Dracula was right next to it.  The Attack from Mars was very fun too.  But the decided winner for me was the Haunted House pinball, with it's awesome Beistle graphics, 3 tiered playfield, and 4 flipper butttons.




On the Attack from Mars, the 4 little jiggler martians vibrated violenty as they attacked. Loved it.  And it's really neat how the topper on the Addams Family is a continuation of the translite artwork.




The winner of the day, in my book:

And the reversed basement:

Amazon currently has these Ghostbusters "Mayhem" figures as $3.74 add-on items. (I paid $3.95 for mine the other day... >:( )  They come in the original sealed (damaged) packaging.  https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01B7OX80Q/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s01?ie=UTF8&psc=1  But I'll pay $4 for a cool lil light up demon any day.  If you're ordering some other stuff, why not??

Mezco 18 inch Annabelle doll. She's even cooler in person.
