Checked Target again today and found out they get shipments Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays. Luckily it isn't far from my house so I guess I'll be checking a lot the next few days. The main thing I want to get is the Creature Screamer/Shelf Sitter but I may still pick up the Windmill Dome and Frank/Bride Dome as well. The Frankenstein Head Dome and Animated Mummy Bust are incredible and must-haves. I bought those two first go around along with the Frank & Mummy Screamers and the Creature costume.

Today I bought the Frankenstein and Creature hard plastic masks. Those look really cool and are well worth the $5 each price IMO. The Creature costume had the mask but I wanted to keep that packaging intact and not rip the mask out. In a few years we'll probably look back on 2017 as being significant for the Uni licensed Monsterville stuff and wish we had bought it all. I'm going to get most of it anyway, and may well end up getting all of it (at Target prices...NOT evilBay prices!).

Well stated, HH. When I saw all this great stuff all at once, I just reached for my wallet. Yes, this may be a turning point in Uni collectibles (like Sideshow was in '99). I hope you find your Creature screamer.

Oops, sorry. Got my hunters mixed up.

I think Steve is referencing the other Portland, the one with Hillsborough in a different state and the one lacking the Fred Meyer!   How does one live without Freddy's?  ;D

Actually it's South Portland, Maine.  What's a Fred Meyer?

I stopped by the South Portland store again and they didn't have much out but surprisingly they had almost everything of the Universal monsters out. Couldn't believe it. I nabbed a Mummy bust, the 3 shelf sitters, the 2 domes, Mummy gauze, the hard plastic Frankenstein mask and the Creature costume. The only thing they didn't have out yet was the Bride hard plastic mask. Maybe this weekend. They did have a Wolfman and Frankenstein costume but no sale on those and they had the Frankenstein Door Greeter. They may be an impulse buy when I am in there next. So glad I didn't have to go the route of EBay for this. The prices were right and I got the thrill of the hunt by finding Universal merchandise in a store rather than online. It's tough being a Universal Monster collector. So much easier in the 60's.

That's what I was telling him!  He thought you were in Oregon.

You got two domes? Which one did you pass on ?

Congrats! I have a feeling that's going to be the toughest of all the Monsterville items to track down.

There was only one left.

Monstervile Screamers are shipping 2 of each character per store. 6 total.

Says who ? Store over here in NY had at least a dozen of them. A buddy bought them all. Is it possible a couple shipments just sat on the shelves for awhile ?

Say who? Why does everything get challenged around here? That's why I stay away anymore, as do all the old timers. Says Target. Initial shipment,  6 per store. Will they get more? Who knows.

Good luck collecting and goodbye. Anyone who wants can see me on Facebook.
