Side note:  Speaking of molded/mono-colored monster figures, what about the ones with swappable heads? (And maybe other swappable parts?)  My brother gave me a few many years ago.  Much larger than the typical Palmer/playset scale if memory serves, and I vaguely recall a witch, skeleton, and maybe an executioner - ?

MPC Pop Top Horrors.




Ooooo, yes, I even remember the packaging now!!  (Though his were in individual baggies, as I recall.)  I love this multipack.  Some interesting, atypical choices....if only more (insect, reptilian, supernatural) monsters were available it'd be a near-prefect range!
I'll be needing the full set, of course.   ;D

Oh I am right with you there buddy. I have wished for years for more of the single color monsters in cool crazy colors.

Kids used to delight in collecting error baseball cards.  Topps decided to deliberately issue a few "error" cards each year, to drive up interest in collecting - an prices.  Screw that.

I think you may be wrong about that. Baseball card dealers were surprised in the 1980s when they found that card collectors weren't interested in error cards, a situation very much unlike that which prevailed in postage stamps.

Added some more and got a better camera.  The colors on these are much more accurate:



Beyond awesome!

Badly! A very serious deficiency to be sure. Hopefully you address it.

Pic of some of my Sinclair stuff. The large dinos facing the camera are Mold-A-Rama pieces:



In 1966 my family, while on a Florida vacation, ran across the travelling Sinclair dino exhibit that was originally at the World's Fair. They had several MAR dinos prebagged and my parents bought me a bag. MAR figures don't hold up well to kid-play so those didn't survive the Toybox Wars of the '60s. I replenished my collection through eBay a few years ago.

More of my MAR stuff:



The gator on the far left was purchased from a MAR machine by kid-me on a Florida trip in the '60s. It's from the Reptile Zoo in St. Petersburg. The others I bought off eBay a few years ago. The other gator is marked "Florida Turnpike". The dino is a newer version of the Sinclair Brontosaurus. It's a little smaller and marked "Apatosaurus". Love the deep blue color on that one.  :)
