My biggest thing isn't near as cool as the other stuff here, but I'm still scratching my head as to where to put it.

It's a huge standee I picked up at swap meet recently.  Two sided (both sides!) cardboard with quarter inch foam between. It's like 40" tall. No way to hang or attach it, no date. (did I mention I'm NEVER selling him?!).
Nearly every acceptable inch of my small cave is taken up.... so it's safely stored behind a cabinet. :(
I was thinking about putting it above my bed ...but that could be weird.  ;D

That's the Hasbro 12" Creature figure for scale next to him:

That's from Blockbuster, very late '90s or even 2000, I can't remember. I understand the storage issue. Let us know what you cook up.

So cool, but a bummer you can't display it!

Some six big Random posters that I really don't know what to do with it in my parents' house during the summer break and they have really seriously have LIMITED blank walls! There are NEVER any other posters hanged up around at all.

luckily I was albe to put five posters up in my dorm this year...

Highlights of my favorite posters are Vertigo, and Fantastic Mr. Fox (this one is really HUGE, and it's a "coming soon" DVD retail poster version)...

still, so clueless on what to put them in my parents' house... Luckily I only go there on holiday breaks for short time, so I end up carefully put one big poster in a place that won't get crushed and it's really HARD I tell you! To find a safe place for it.
Collecting? It's what I do!

I have 3 or 4 large Pepsi Halloween promotional cardboard cutouts/standees that take up too much room to be displayed, but are too cool to give up.

I have a thing for those Pepsi displays...for some reason it is so sweet to see the monsters coupled with a popular brand name like that...just has a nice feeling.
Beautiful moving, shifting colors!

I think I forgot to say thank you for the info! I really wanted to know where it came from.  I figured it was a local store display somewhere... Blockbuster of course!

I'm thinking once I get my Universal Monsters shelf in, I can hook it to the ceiling above it. Hoping anyway.

A Creature poster so big I can't hang it. It's 88" X 48"!



I will leave it rolled up in the mailing tube until someday I may be able to safely hang it.. somewhere. This thing is beautiful, and I'm still pleased to have it, but I just can't display it. I ordered it from Drive-In Moonlite Movies. The guy sent me a certificate of authenticity (mine is #2) and three fridge magnets, one for each of the Creature flicks, as bonuses. I have all of those displayed, just not the poster.  ;D

I have door posters up of Vampirella and the Jack Davis Frankenstein, but those seem tiny compared to that Creature poster. I used clips, small nails, and strips of poster-board, to hang the door posters without damaging them. I could use the same method to hang the Creature poster if I had the room. It may sound weird, but I'm still glad I bought it.

I've got one of these pinball machine side cabinet decals and don't have wall space for something half that big, so it's in a tube in the closet. Not sellin' it, though. The smaller decal of the scratching claw is on the wall.

Elder, it's not Monster related, but...

Tucked in a very dusty corner of my bedroom, behind a file cabinet, is an old wooden cover for a full-sized organ pipe.

I helped move and rebuild the vintage instrument in our church's former building, and just haven't been able to part with it...
