What kind of link to what collection folder?

 ???

And the water damage that Freddie mentioned in this thread was only to a very few gum cards from his childhood that he'd left at his father's house. Most of the cards Freddie remembered and was hoping to find survived unscathed.

 :)
Didnt know if there was a link to all of Freddy Poe's collection pics in one spot.
Wish I had 2 of each toy as a kid....1 to play with and 1 kept mint in the box!!

Looking back....I don't recall this thread. However, Mr. Poes' collection is fantastic.

Freddie picked up this intriguing 22" X 16" framed poster at Chiller Con in 2015:



He was guessing that it was originally a 1970s carnival prize or sold at a Spencer Gifts kind of store. Does anyone have a better idea?

Definitely a commercial, or "dorm" type poster. It's possible there is publisher info being covered by the frame?

I guess the "Tooter" is a little noise maker you blow into when wearing the mask?

Those Luminators look cool!  I think I have a sealed Dracula around here, and never had any idea what it might look like...  any of those would be great in a Halloween display! 
If you want to view Paradise, simply look around and view it.

Love me some Luminators!!! His Mummy and Kong look great! Normally the pink fades away. I had to repaint my Mummy with transparent, fluorescent glass paint. I am looking for orange paint like that to touch-up the Frankenstein.

The Luminator kits are stunning. I have a few still sealed in their boxes. Now, I think I want to released the GLOW.
