A couple of paperbacks with great James Bama covers. Couldn't find the FRANKENSTEIN book, so I substituted the original painting.

The Frankenstein above is perhaps my very favourite James Bama piece.

I've always loved The Angry Red Planet movie poster:



As a result one of the very few action figures that really tempts me is the rat-bat-spider by M1GO. It comes factory direct with different paint jobs so you can't have just one.









You need a whole colony!

A vending machine like these ones here is essential in any household where one or more monster kids reside:



Running out of candies for one's favourite PEZ dispenser just wouldn't do!

Those last two are great! Don't know which I like best?

The ones I posted above were evidently released as part of the glow-in-the-dark edition and look fabulous from every angle:



















Even the packaging is cool!

Love that Rat Bat Spider. M-1 also made a Reptilicus. Here's a photo of mine...



How do I make a photo from flickr appear here?

Reptilicus is a sadly underrated multi media star who doesn't get the recognition he deserves. How many other prehistoric menaces have chosen Copenhagen as the locale on which to vent their frustrations? You have to give Reptilicus credit for not going with the crowd.

Yes,  Reptilicus was cool.  Here again, going on a "rant" about the Reading Drive-in, I saw that movie when it was released, on the giant drive-in screen.  It had everything going for it, everything a "monster" kid could want!!!

Wow! Seeing Reptilicus for the first time at a drive-in as a kid would have been awesome!

It was at the Sunset, Twilight or 401 Drive-Ins just outside of London that on separate occasions back in the late fifties I saw The Monolith Monsters and Day of the Triffids for the first time:

Hey Hep!  Monolith Monsters was a very cool movie, I liked Day of the Triffids much better though, a bit more suspenseful.  When I saw Reptilicus, with the rest of my family, I remember my mom going "eeeeewwwwwww", when the drillers at the start of the movie started hacking off pieces of "meat" from the well drill, along with the monster "up-chucking" blob type pieces throughout the movie, she also made a comment upon first seeing the creature in the field, saying that she thought it looked "sick".  I totally enjoyed that flick, it was actually a little spooky at the lab scene with the thunderstorm brewing.  We were at the drive-in a few weeks earlier and saw the coming attractions for the movie and I pleaded my parents to see this, which we did.

I was lucky enough to have acquired this piece from one of the great sellers here and on eb; Allhallowsday.

Proudly displayed in my office now and its even more magnificent up-close and real lol!

Here's a great Beistle owl cutout from the 1930's from the collection of Allhallowsday:
