I'd have to say my Sideshow 8" figures at 5 for $50 (what a bargain!). I hate to be unoriginal, but I'll also concur with the 12" Sideshow figures. My favorite recent acquisition would have to be my Code 3 Creature from the Black Lagoon scupture ($35 on E-Bay). It's a heavy, resin sculpture of the original movie poster art with astounding detail! Every aspect of that classic poster is captured in this great 3-D sculpture.

Actually, yeah, that relief of the Creech movie poster IS right up there with best items under $50.

Maybe we need a best item under $20 post as well?

That's an easy one. My Sideshow  Bela "gypsy"from the Wolf man, I only paid  15 dollhairs for the figure.....what else????
Oh yeah.....Sideshow Phantom of the Opera(silverscreens edition) for 35.00, now that is really cool.

Probably my sealed Aurora Creature glow-in-the-dark kit 1972. Got it at a model car swap for 5 bucks. Like everyone else the 8" and 12" Sideshow Universals (and for me Friday the 13th) figs.

The new 12" scale 2010 Wolfman from Mezco.  This is a thing of beauty.  What they don't tell you is that it really is in SCALE...this thing is actually fourteen inches tall, and that's crouching!! 

He's as big as the premium format Sideshow Wolfman figure which cost $225 

He also comes with a really nice fabric shirt and suede/satin vest, and he's only $35!!!  The sculpting is incredible, and he's poseable...I hope Mezco gets the rights to do classic Universal horror figures.

Yep, I snagged one off Ebay.  Buy-it-now with free shipping.  I've seen them as low as $32 and as high as $68...you gotta shop around.

At least that's what my momma told me...

Anywho, I must say my Anchor Hocking Creature glass. Only lightened my wallet by 35.

Would you post a pic of it here including its packaging?  Thanks!
