Thanks for the info MFS, I always wondered about the white ones because I almost never see them other than the one I have and the one that was
posted earlier in this thread.

these guys are pretty cool-how big are they? I'm guessing 2 or 3 inches tall? I need to look into getting some if some of them are pretty common and not too expensive!
Crazy am I? We'll see if I'm crazy or not!

Got my first Pencil sharper today in the mail. I didn't realize these were made of a blow mold plastic. I was thinking they were hard plastic.

Yeah.  They are pretty soft plastic.

A have seen a very that have hardened a little over the years.  It makes it more difficult to remove/replace the actual sharpener unit in the base.  Normally, it is no big deal to stretch the bottom open just enough to pry the little guy out. 

Since the heads and sharpeners come in random colors, I have switched mine around to match up as best as possible.

So how much should one expect to pay for an Etta and Frankenstein in green? And who would be offering either for sale?  ;)Just curious. :angel:

Just found my first Ghoul which brought me to this forum for the first time. Excellent posts, photos and info. Interested in picking up more sharpeners if anyone is holding. PM or email with list and asking price.  Thanks. Happy to have found the Army.

Otherwise, it's gonna get reaaaalllly confusing referring to things using Dante's "original mold" criteria - for example, every Bill Lemon-sculpted Mummy kit ever issued - from the Aurora longbox to the Frightening Lightning to the Aurora Glow squareboxes to the Monogram to the Luminator to the Polar Lights - would all be referred to as "original" as they all came from the "original" Aurora mold first used in 1963... yikes!

I agree with you. An item shouldn't/can't be classified as an "original" unless it's from the original years of issue.

Quote from: Dr.Terror on February 08, 2008, 08:07:59 PMI usually call something that came from an original mold, but not from the original production period a RE-Pop(Repopped from the original mold). and for my collecting purposes I'm happy with either an Original or a Repop.  Plastic isn't worth any more to me because it's old.  I'm perfectly happy with my Polar Lights kits.

While I agree that anything not from the original production period should be classified as a repop, I see a very strong difference between officially authorized repops such as the Polar Lights kits and unsanctioned under the table repops. The latter to me constitute unethical breaches of copyright and are worthless to me. And before anyone raises the question, no I've never downloaded music or movies from Napster or any other unsanctioned source.

Collecting! It's what I do!

Here's an old pic of mine. Funny thing is my two Mummys are different shades of green, one light and one dark. I wonder if that is common.

I've never seen a Mummy offered for sale in any color except green.

ALWAYS MONSTERING...

Back in the early 90's I knew guys who had hundreds maybe thousands of these.... I remember thinking at the time they were repops but still bought 500 and sold them in my store for $2.00 ea. for years. The lack of Frankensteins just meant they did not have the franky mold is what I assumed. I have a carded Wolfman in white so I know they are vintage as well as an orange, green and grey Frankenstein on cards.
