As a kid, I recall these monsters as being only slightly less idiotic than the Repulsives, and stuck me widdle nose up at 'em.  Nowadays, I'd look on them as a challenge: could they be made into something plausibly frightening?  I think the builder of the models in the photos did pretty well.  But where to find the kits?  They haven't been reissued that I know of, except for some resin recasts I saw on eBay a while back, which went for $75 for the set - too rich for my blood!  Maybe Round 2...?
I build, therefore I am.

Huh? Now I'm really confused.

As a kid, I recall these monsters as being only slightly less idiotic than the Repulsives....

But the kits I posted just above are the Repulsives! So which kits did you find more or less idiotic than the others? These?





Or these?




 ???


I think the builder of the models in the photos did pretty well.

But you were the builder of the kits in the majority of the posts featuring build-ups in this thread including in the last two posts of build-ups above! So to which build-ups are you referring?

But where to find the kits?  They haven't been reissued that I know of, except for some resin recasts I saw on eBay a while back, which went for $75 for the set - too rich for my blood!

Not so. The Lindy Loonys and Repulsives have been reissued more than once:









A reissue of the Mad Maestro is also widely available.

Here is the Lindberg Brain Buster kit from 1965. This was a motorized model like their Mad Maestro kit from the same year. The Brain Buster was probably Lindberg’s response to Aurora’s Nutty Nose Nipper and Wacky Back-Whacker.

Hey! I didn't know any of those kits existed.
