What is this Creature item?
« on: July 12, 2018, 07:33:06 PM »
Don't think I've ever seen this. Anybody know what it is? What it went with? It's cardboard and the date looks like '82, or '92.

I don't know what it is, but it's the same logo as on the Telco motionette and those were 1992 I think.

I have the Dracula, Frankenstein, Bride, and Wolf Man from this set.  I am missing the Creature.  These were yard decorations, pathway markers really, that came out in 1992.  They came with little stakes to put them into the ground.

Yep, 1992 Rubie's Costume Company walkway decorations. I picked up a set last year (or the year before) on deep closeout at their warehouse on a road trip with Fatfink. They also made full figure yard stakes that are pretty swell.

Here's the packaging for the walkway decorations hot linked from somewhere.

I have never seen the full figure ones.  I would love to own them.  Do you have pictures?

I don't. They are from Rubie's and were released at the same time. I wish I could remember what they called them. They're packaged in much the same fashion, header with bag, but the item is a couple of feet tall.

Here's a pic of the Creature one. I think they're about 3 ft. tall. I wish I had one, but never see them for sale anymore.

Rubies made these 1990's lawn signs in Walkway Decorations (heads), about 11-12" tall and Yard Decorations (full bodies), about 36" tall.

I think the heads are double-sided stiff cardboard and glow in the dark.

The full bodied signs are MUCH scarcer and hardly ever show up on eBay.


Here is my Frank:



The cardboard portion of my full bodied Frank is exactly 35" tall and is printed on one side only.

Yes, yes and no.

You're right.  I wonder why I was thinking they did glow?

Thanks for the pictures of the full-size guys!  I really, really like 'em.  Wish I could track them down, but I, like many of you, have never seen them.
