What is I.G.?

That was a typo, sorry. I meant to write, Instagram.

Even now many younger collectors don't know what MPC Monsters are, or just don't care. That's evident by the lack of new posts in this thread. If not for myself and Hepcat this thread would fade away.

MPC rates even higher than Marx when it comes to monster collectibles in my book. I have MPC right up there with SPP and Hasbro but somewhat below Aurora.

H.H., you would be surprised how many younger collectors on Instagram collect vintage Monster toys. Whether it's a Hipster thing or maybe a true interest in vintage Monster toy collecting.
Yeah, it's probably just the lack of traffic on this board, and this thread in particular, that gave me that impression.

UMA was a busy place back when I started posting 8 or 9 years ago. Not so much anymore. I used to work on labor-intensive posts that I thought would do my part to contribute to a board where several other members did elaborate posts that I enjoyed reading. I stopped doing that because most members don't post at all, and most of the ones that do post keep it quick and easy. Hepcat, Memphremagog, and a few others still do big entertaining posts sometimes, but the volume of lengthy quality posts has dropped off significantly. I still post some since coming back, but I try to keep it casual and light on the work. I guess the UMA glory days are behind us. Nothing great lasts very long it seems.

You don't see these Pop-Top 2-packs for sale much these days.

eBay listing: https://www.ebay.com/itm/203284081125?ul_noapp=true



Notice the staples through the bases.


When you get Pop-Tops with the little staple holes in the bases you know they were sold in a 2-pack. The ones without holes were sold in a harder-to-find 8-pack.

These don't appear to be falling apart inside the package like some that were sold a few years ago. $600+ seems like a fair price considering what they've been selling for the last few years. Cool piece of Monster Kid, and Multiple Toymakers, history.

That seller has some amazing items for sale if your pockets are deep enough.

The prices are well above FMV on most of the seller's items. Curiously, the Pop-Top 2-pack seems to be priced at about FMV. Maybe the seller isn't up on how much these things are selling for so as to overprice them.  ???

I did wonder as some of those prices are eye watering!

Sold yesterday. $600+ is a pretty good grab for the buyer considering packaged brittle examples sold for close to this much years ago. The market for monster items looks stronger than ever.

The second picture didn't turn out as clear as I would like. I have trouble getting proper lighting in that room. Maybe I'll set all of that stuff up in my photo room and take proper pictures one day...but not today.  :laugh:

Photo room? What kind of camera are you using? Do you use a tripod? Do you have special lighting?
