I have one of these with the box, like the previous robot shown, owned for more than 30 years and one of my two last vintage robots (image found online): 

If you want to view Paradise, simply look around and view it.

Here are some good shots of RPM's SPP Weird-Ohs binder:







The binders are  1.5" wide and the images are printed directly onto the vinyl.

Drat! We keep losing more pics because of Photobucket's new policy.

Charlton ran Gorgo's Revenge/Return of Gorgo concurrently with the Gorgo title in the 1962-64 period:

And here's a scan of a one shot Charlton Giant featuring both Gorgo and his buddy Konga:

It is an old Battlestar Galactica figure called The Imperious Leader. It is missing the robe.

Thanks.. Did not remember that  Galactica was a Universal Studios property.

Here from our Media section are several vending machine cards posted by Toy Ranch:









The above card is missing only the Godzilla figure.

Currently at auction (not mine) I just like the cover and it's great when there is an image host:

Perhaps the most highly prized, and expensive, Aurora model kit of them all these days is the Gigantic frankenstein:



It was a sales flop when released in 1964 because quite simply its $4.95 price induced a case of sticker shock in potential buyers. Since it wasn't selling briskly, Aurora didn't make many and therefore it's very tough to find these days.

The James Bama painting on the box adds immensely to the kit's desirability with collectors:

Hi Hep.  Back in the 60's,  I remember seeing a Big Frankie in Haines Hobby shop here in Reading, it was put on top of the high showcase where the other kits were, just collecting dust, one day I went in, and it wasn't there anymore. This was a few years after the kit was released, probably around 1968 or so, I don't know if someone actually bought it, or it was stored away, or just thrown out. The high price tag was surely a factor in low sales, but also, at least to me when the kit came out, it was a "comical" take on Frankenstein that I didn't really care for, much the same as the monster hot rods.  It was Frankenstein, but in a funny abstract form that was more toy-like, to me the box was the best part. The Famous Monsters 1965 yearbook also shares the same image, along with maybe a poster and puzzle that came out years later. It is now an expensive kit to find, as you mentioned.  On a rarity scale though, I'd much rather have my MIB Godzilla's Go Cart back, or even a King Kong's Thronester. Next to impossible to find compared to Big Frankie.  Non-Aurora kits of characters are really tough too, such as the UPC kits of the Ultraman series, probably just about all of the early Marusan kits of science fiction type, and the Okamoto kits of Frankenstein and the Wolfman that can be seen in Kirks book.
