Most of my stuff is too.

95% of my toy collection is in storage as well, and I have alot of toys…
http://www.bobbysmonstermodels.com/toy_asylum2.html

Since it went into climate-controlled storage 4 years back, I have managed to collect a number of new pieces and they are with me now. Occasionally, I'll stop at my storage locker and forage through some boxes and bring some stuff home. My NECA Predators are here (because I'm still collecting them), and I've really gotten back into collecting Matchbox and HotWheels, which is a whole other toy collection in itself, and they are small and compact and not a problem with my current living situation. But monster stuff? I only buy things I really want now. I currently have a small pile of monster toys in a closet that is slowly growing now…again, LOL.

The really cool thing about having your toys stored away is one day you'll be able to dive into it again, and it's going to be like Christmas because I've been into this for 18 years now, and I have tons of stuff that I've completely forgotten that I bought. It's gonna be like, "OMG, I bought this?? I don't remember this at all."

One of these days...

The best thing about this set released by Fleer in 1965 is actually the wrapper, although the cards themselves are pretty good:







The set sold well enough to spawn a sequel;

I picked up both repro sealed boxes a few years ago through eBay. I ordered the Weird-Ohs box and the guy sent me the Baseball Weird-Ohs by mistake. I messaged him about it and he told me to keep the Baseball Weird-Ohs and he then sent the one I ordered. The repros were very inexpensive, even for repros. I never did open the packs. They look good displayed as full boxes, and I have enough card binders as it is.

I've never seen these, or heard of them. What do the models actually look like?

Pretty much like the boxes.

I was going through some box's, and came across this piece, almost forgot about it.  I can't remember when I exactly aquired it, but, it might have been the very first Atlantic City Antique show I went to, many years ago. When I saw it, I knew it was something special. It came with a collection of several old items purchased by this dealer who dealt in costume type jewelry. It's damaged a little bit on the left side, but not too bad, I was thinking of painting it where the cracking is, but decided not to. It's as is. If anyone has any info, please let me know, I'll try to get a picture of this piece up this week. It's a Creature pin, looks like it's painted plaster, flat on the back, with a pin to maybe pin on yourself. Looks old, maybe from 60's. Possibly from a set of Universal Monsters, can't imagine they would only produce a Creature. It's a 3-D image of the head.

Here are some pictures of this Creature pin. I believe the dealer said it was a chalk ware piece. It's about 1.25 in. tall. There is some detail on the face, sort of remember seeing things like this of maybe different characters way back, but if anyone can help with knowing exactly when it was from. As mentioned by looking at it, with the way it's painted, looks like a 60's piece.

Interesting piece! It looks old. May be plaster of Paris? Could be a carnival prize, or a craft shop item?

Hi Mike. It could be plaster of some sort. I remember when purchasing the piece many years ago at the show that it was something I've never seen before. I sort of remember asking the dealer for more info on it, I believe all she said was that it came with an accumulation of older costume jewelry, she had it set off to the side in the case. I can't remember for sure or not but I sort of remember seeing these types of things when I was a kid in cheap 5 and dime stores. There were all sorts of monster type items back then. I'm sure many of those items are so obscure.

It's a dead ringer to have been cast from the face piece of the Aurora model kit.

Lindberg Monster Models:



Demand for those is only a fraction of that for the Aurora kits but the Lindberg kits are incredibly tough to find.
