Remember when, back in the days before dvd's and vhs, the only way to see monster movies in your home was with these? Super 8 and 8mm home movies.

Thanks for sharing your monster stuff. Very cool collection! I used to enjoy many hours playing Monster Old Maid with my family. I loved those oversized monster cards!

Hi Don, greetings & welcome! Great collection, & I really like the Mattel King Kong puppet! I recall it used to include a Bobby Bond figure.

Thanks for the comments!

I love those big monster cards,too.

Yes, that Kong had a little plastic Bobby Bond in his hand but he's long gone!

Here's another King Kong based on the cartoon which is also missing it's Bobby Bond.This Bobby was held in Kongs hand with a magnet.
