The Lindberg monster models!
« on: May 16, 2019, 01:44:25 PM »
Following in the path blazed by Aurora, Lindberg Models issued its own line of me-too monster model kits in 1965 - the Mad Mangler, Green Ghoul, Krimson Terror and the Creeping Crusher.











But just two main pieces? I guess they weren't particularly challenging to assemble anyway....

I’ll second that I’ve never seen these guys either! They’re cool looking, especially the creature-like figure. Are they pretty rare today?

I don't know who painted the figures in that last image but they look better than the box art!

Yes, they're rare indeed these days and can fetch a pretty price. They just weren't very popular when issued so not many were produced. As a result they're very tough to find now.

Unique and very cool.

Ahhhhh, but of course! The fabled Green Ghoul!
