Why don't you keep your Marx Weird-Ohs closer to your Nutty Mads? They're all part of the same broader series.

My Hasbro Marble Maze:





Ghost Town, Haunted Mountains, Devil's Pass, Red Witch, Shark Lake, Crocodile Swamp, Tiger Valley, Man-Eating Plants, I mean how could any young boy resist the lure of such horrors?

Two reasons. It would be a lot of work to rearrange everything, and I like the variety of having some things displayed with somewhat different types of collectibles. Still, they all fit together since they're monster items.

The things that I religiously keep in order are comics, monster mags, and trading cards, because otherwise I could never find anything.  ;)

My Anchor-Hocking UniMon Glasses and Monster Superballs:



The picture isn't too sharp because I had to hold the camera very high to get a straight-on pic since these are on an upper shelf.

Here is the display cabinet in which I store my lunch boxes, board games and other cool stuff:







And here are some pics of a couple of my monster themed board games:

Here then are shots of some of my Spook Stories cards, stickers and wrappers:













The Spook Stories were the first non-sport cards I collected aggressively as a kid.

You asked for a favorite, here it is.

King Zor was a favorite when I was young, and finding one in the 1980s at a flea market  was a highlight. I didn't have a pic of mine handy but this one off of the net will suit just fine. Mine doesn't have the cracks in the legs.

I was unaware of King Zor as a kid. I first learned of King Zor from this book in 1996:



It's been way up high on my mega cool list ever since!

Bruegman's book introduced me to a lot of cool toys I was unaware of as a kid.

Hamilton's Invaders were another line of toys about which I learned from Bruegman's book. Here's the set Raycastile just sold on Ebay:
