I only owned THE WOLF MAN, so I went with him.  The Dracula looks pretty cool, too, but for my 2nd choice, I picked Frank.

I think I might have shared this story on the forum once before, but since it specifically pertains to this subject I'll share it again briefly...

My father had the Creature one when he was a kid. His mom bought it for him and when they got home he immediately opened it up and set to work on it. He worked on it for quite a while and finally got it done. He was so excited when he finished it that he propped it up on his desk so he could look at it while he laid in bed that night. When he woke up the next morning, he found (to his horror) that the paints ran and dried like that over night and the whole thing was completely ruined! He never got another one and ever since then always wanted to re-do it. So for Christmas a few years back i decided it would be a cool Christmas gift to hunt one down for him so he could finally do one successfully. That quest is actually how I found this forum! I learned that it was an incredibly rare piece but some of you were awesome enough to share some photos of the packaging and the item itself. I used those photos and set to work in Photoshop retracing it and reconstructing a new one as close as I possibly could to the original! It actually worked out really well too! He flipped out when I gave it to him and he finally got to paint one and have it survive!

I definitely will! Shortly after he finished it we moved from South Florida up to Charlotte, NC and it's in a stack of items that we haven't unpacked yet. We are going to be finishing out our basement soon as a big entertainment area and part of it will be a display for all of our toys and collectibles and he want's to put it in there, so to keep it protected it's still in the sleeve we packed it in to move, but as soon as I get it out I will DEFINITELY post pictures up of it!

I'd have to go with Dracula or the Wolfman. Odd combo of Wolfman from A&C Meet Frankenstein, with Curse of the Werewolf clothes...again!

It's hard to pick just two 'cuz I like 'em all. The first three that were produced -Frankenstein, Dracula and Wolf Man seem to have a little more detail in the actual paint by numbers than the second set of three that came out. I've had Frankenstein, Draula and the Wolf Man since I was a kid. My older brother painted them and gave them to me back in the '60's and I still have them and they're some of my most prized possessions. I don't have the boxes for them, though.

Hard call. I voted for Creature and Wolfman, but Franky would be a close third.

The art had to be dumbed-down so a kid could paint it, would be my guess.

BTW, if you notice, the Frank/Drac/Wolfman sets have more complex, better done box art based on movie stills. The Creature and Phantom are simplified versions of Bama's Aurora box art. The Mummy is just simple.

Here they are. I always looked up to my brother, so anything he gave me I took care of and cherished. These and some other '60's monster items that he gave me are what started me collecting. I've had these since the '60's and they are in the same condition as when I got them.

I voted Dracula and Mummy.  I used to have Frankenstein,Dracula, Wolfman and Phantom (wish I still did) I never saw the Mummy before. I like the paint scheme and likeness of Lon Chaney Jr. That's why it got my vote. I just don't care much for the makeup version of the Wolfman from Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein. Westmore was not on the same level as Pierce IMHO. Even though the actors I am sure preferred Westmore's rubber appliances over 4 hours or more in a makeup chair, Pierces' makeup was more realistic looking.

A suggested paint scheme is typically part of the instruction sheet for these paint-by-number sets. Your real problem would be finding an unused set in the first place, and then at the price you'd have to pay it wouldn't make any sense whatsoever to "vandalize" the sheets of the mint set by painting them.

In all seriousness I really don't understand your problem. It's as if you're opposed to me, or anybody else, bumping up this thread once or twice a year.

 ???

But this is not only the single best thread on the Hasbro Painting by Numbers sets on this board, but it's likely the most comprehensive overview of these sets anywhere on the internet. Therefore it should be bumped up periodically! There's no way this thread should be left to fade into the mists of time.

Every contest needs an ending and a winner. If you don't have that, people are going to loose interest, fast.

Usually when we bump threads, it's because there's something new to add, even if it's just a new guy expressing his thoughts on the subject.

If someone wants to do the research, I'll put up a sticky topic with links to the most interesting threads. To qualify, a thread should have a good amount of info on the topic.

Hep, don't take anything I said as being nasty to you.I stay out of any thread that seems to be getting out of hand between members here but like Mike said you started this thread as a contest so there needs to be a winner in a reasonable amount of time and this will be my last comment on your post. So do what you wish with it.

Interesting! My thinking at the time was that the best general catch-all thread on these Hasbro sets would be a poll. I thought the poll feature would just serve as an added element of interest.

Here's a very cool Captain Company ad from Famous Monsters of Filmland magazine for the first three Hasbro Paint by Numbers sets:

Hasbro also released several wild cool Munsters Painting by Number sets in 1965. Here's the one for Granpa Munster:

The Munsters Painting by Number sets are even harder to find than the Universal Painting by Number sets these days.

Hopefully, these can help pass the time away while we are all stuck in self-isolation. I found this art online and cleaned them up as best I could. While they are still a bit hard to make out, they are FREE!!! As long as you can determine where the basic lines are, you can paint them or color them as you see fit. You can see the color scheme in the post above, as well as the color key, below. Enjoy!

Three of the sets featured in the above poll were also included in the Hasbro Horror House Paint and Pencil by Number set which was a Sears exclusive listed for $3.97 in the 1963 and 1964 Sears Xmas catalogues:

Here are some pictures of a still sealed Hasbro Painting by Numbers Munsters Grandpa set from the collection of Freddie Poe. He believes it may be the best surviving copy in existence and I think he may be correct:

Does anyone have a scan of the creature without the paint?
