I checked Gorgo, Kong & Frank.  I had them all as a kid, but haven't seen one in person (or monster) for probably 45 years!  They all look supercool to me - and I might have to slooooowly try to collect them in the future.

Yep, Bud, and thanks for asking!  I posted my return on the "Guess what...Valentine's Day?" thread in General Discussion.

I never had these as a boy but a neighbor did. I'm suprised that I didn't steal Kong & Gorgo. Ma must have raised me well right from the start. LOL

Anyway, I don't remember if Frank, Drac, It were there but I do remember that the kid had some dinosaurs. So, Fay Wray became Supergirl and fought all the giant monsters when I was able to play with those toys.

Tish, you spoke French!!  You know it drives me wild when you spead French!!!

Here are my Palmers. The yellow Gorgo and the blue Kong I've had since I was a kid. I like 'em all, but I guess if I had to pick 3 favorite's it would be Gorgo, Kong and IT. I think a Reptillicus would've been cool, or Sanda and Gaira from War Of The Gargantuas, I would love to see more monsters added, somebody should make more.






Toy Ranch

I had a Red Dracula and a Blue Frankenstein when I was a kid.  Those are my faves.

My "every monster in every (regular) color has been whittled down to one of each, and I recently took some new photos.

I love 'em all.  I guess my very favorite one would have to be The Creature, but Frankie and Wolfman are close.  To me, these sculpts epitomise monster toys of the 60's.  There is a crudeness to them, but it comes with such character and charm.  Just look at Frankie's face; it says it all.

You guys have got some great Palmers.  I've been trying to start a collection, so if anyone on here has a Palmer Cyclops for sale, I'd be interested.

Absolutely! And I wish Aurora had made a few more monster models including a Mole Man and a Metaluna Mutant.
