ToyFair pics ( monster related )

As I made my way around the floor, each time I saw something monster related I immediately thought of you guys and captured the images. Here are a few to start off.

LOL! What this hobby needs are more plush monsters! At least these stuffed monsters look a bit more fierce than the CVS stuffed dolls. What's next? More die-cast monster vehicles too?

Thanks Robert for the pics. I do appreciate it even though it may not sound like it! That first pic features some pretty cool looking monsters.

No worries Terry, I was just goofing around. I'm sure Shannon is snapping up a storm with the real deal. From what she told me she's been having a blast running all around. NECA had some neat stuff going on which I'm sure shes covering. As soon as I receive some additional images from my friends cameras I'll see about uploading some more here if they relate. Wouldn't you know my batteries died not 3 hours in. Aaarrgh!!

Those are actually the best plush monsters I've seen as far as new toys are concerned.

Yeah Andy, I would have to agree with you. That Creech looks cool and the Dracula almost has that old man Bela look to it. They do look convincing enough to own. I can't believe I just said that. I was hoping the era of plush monsters had finally come to a close. I'm up to my elbows as it is with CVS stuffins. I've got all three sizes too.  :-\

Maybe they will only be available at a chain where you stuff your own plush animal, like Build-A-Bear.

That's exactly what came to mind when I saw the sign in that photo. Come on, can't you just picture yourselves all standing in a line of small children, patiently waiting to stuff your monster dollies? :D ;)

Please don't tell anyone Nicole. That would be bad for army morale. We're a rough and tough bunch here. Remember?

Oh okay, got it. Can we still stuff the dollies if we flex a lot while we stuff them?

Oh, if you guys have never done the Build-a-Bear thing, you're in for a treat! It's like being Dr. Frankenstein without the electricity!  I can see the General now screaming It's alive.....

I think you'll have a good time Mike

I love those plush monsters.

Look at Bela's little plush Hungarian face. How did they figure that out?

Thanks guys, for going and sharing.
