That German Devil would look good fashioned in Bronze or stone and hung in a garden year-round.

VERY COOL!

What material is it made of?

(I hope someone scans it and uses the info for 3-D printing - so it is preserved in some permanent form.)

NEVER MIND - I FOUND IT ON E-BAY

I wish I had one stamped out of some no-rust metal.  I'd hang it in my little courtyard.

Thick embossed cardboard, like an egg carton.  It's over 2k and closing in 4 hours. 
If you want to view Paradise, simply look around and view it.

Most of the ABG monster pencil Sharpeners from 1964 were I think purchased out of display boxes such as this:



So the individually packaged ones such as this orange Wolf Man below are a rare find indeed these days:

Here are pics of some of the most fabled monster cereals that have been sold over the last fifty+ years:

Boo Berry - General Mills



Count Chocula - General Mills



Franken Berry - General Mills



Freakies - Ralston



Fruit Brute - General Mills



Quisp - Quaker



Yummy Mummy - General Mills



Then of course there's the never ending question of whether Lucky Charms should be classified as a monster cereal because of the menacing leprechaun with whom the cereal is closely associated:

If you ever loose those Styrofoam pieces, you could probably use, oh I don't know, a potato, or something.  ;D
