As a Famous Monsters fan, I'm gutted that https://captainco.com/ is shutting down. Last call for orders is Feb. 23rd.

Two main variants of the Mad Mad Mad Scientist Laboratory were produced.



First the one I had as a kid:



And then the slightly more elaborate one with the square foil-lined cardboard tray for surplus chemicals or whatever:




Here courtesy of Mike Scott are some really good pictures of the companion Mad Mad Mad Magician set that's missing a few pieces:











Monster Bob I believe has a more complete one.

Between "good" and "pictures" should be the word "auction".  :laugh:

Do they call those "slide puzzles"?

I wonder how many monster related ones were made in the '60s - '70s? Looks like 3, here. There was the UM one and the Munsters one. Can't remember any others.

 Amazing card collection, Hep. By far my favorite is that great Outer Limits set. Those are still vivid memories from my childhood.
