Kharis snowball and tomb thingy
« on: October 20, 2019, 06:25:08 PM »
Last year in the October version of the Toyfest in my city one store bring some interesting stuff about Universal Monsters.

 Aside of the action figures they bring this Mummy crystal snowball which i didn't hestitate to get. The item is also a music box tough the mechanism is broken. And i also get this....i am not sure what it is, a Mummy coming out of his sarcophagus tough he is covered in translucent plastic that distort the view. I am not sure what is this item for, does someone know??

Also it was the first time i see merchandise based on Kharis and not Imhotep, i wonder of someone here knows if theres more of this stuff, or overall if they sell this in the Universal parks or something? I also wondered how old they are since they are in very good condition but i doubt Universal release them recently.

Both of these items were made by Westland Giftware in the 2000s, though I don't know the exact year.

There have been several sets (and individual) Universal Monsters snow globes, if you're interested in others.

They both look great!

Love how the snow globe base is a fez hat!

 Both are very nice (especially the snow globe).

Here's the rest of the Westland UMs, except I couldn't find the Franky statue.

Thanks!!!! The snow globes are really fantastic!! Wish i could get the rest but i feel lucky i already found the Mummy one. Soo they are not as old as expected but still, no info about the second Mummy in coffin figurine? I guess is just a decoration for the desk.

Also from Westland Giftware. Came out at the same time as the snow globes (2000s).

Consider yourself lucky. The Mummy is probably the most important one. There simply isn't much Kharis stuff around. Both of those are beautiful.

Can you replenish the water in a globe?  I never buy them because I don't want a half evaporated one a few years down the line.
