These things take time. Have a little patience!

He did say around mid-summer. We're pretty much there already. It would be nice to get an update at some point. Just sayin'

We finally secured the licensing from Universal, that was the first hurdle. Seems like it's a bunch of soccer moms over there doing licensing and even though I was handing them money up front they just didn't want to license Universal Monsters. They kept telling me that the monsters were not great money makers.

Well after a lot of going back and forth we licensed a lot more than the board game so we don't have to go back to them for a while. As per the license we have to get one piece out within six months, so the original board game will be first since it's ready to go. I'd say mid summer release.

So, what happened?

Sounds like a lot of NOTHING happened!!  I don't know about you, but I looked back from the beginning of this topic, and I would NEVER EVER open up a sealed original creature game, if I were to reproduce a thing like this (if I actually could),  I'd wait for a well used copy of the game to surface.  Something just doesn't sound right??!!

On the luckiest day of my life, if I found a sealed game at a garage sale and thought it was the only one I'd ever get, I'd have to open it! But, I assume, I would be able to trade it for a near perfect one and a chunk of change.

Hey Mike.  Well,  for trading purposes,  and to get some extra money if that's what you initially wanted to do,  I can see your point.  But, to me,  it's kind of the same thought process as to opening up an original seal on an Aurora kit.  Just a short time ago on e-bay, a person had an original 1964 Aurora Godzilla kit that was sealed, he mentioned in the description that he removed the original seal because it was torn a bit and dirty,  I wanted so bad to send him an e-mail to tell him that original sealed Godzilla kits by Aurora are indeed quite rare, and it really wasn't the smartest thing to do,  but, anyone can surely do what they want with their collectibles (as in opening up a sealed Creature game).  Actually, in my opinion, the best comeback to this thread was by Monster Bob on page 2 of this topic.

Yeah, but there's plenty of Aurora repros to build and paint. If I could get a Creature Mystery Game repro, that easy, of course I wouldn't unseal an original. Only when faced with the likelihood of never getting to see/touch/play with the insides of one.

I don't think most board games came shrink wrapped before 1975 or so.

Mike, totally understood.  And Hep beat me to it, I was actually going to mention too about earlier board games being sealed or not.  I've owned quite a few early 60's games with the actual store price sticker still attached to the lid in the corner or on the bottom box.

To my knowledge, none of the monster games came with the lids shrinkwrapped the bottoms. All of them came with the small box that holds the characters and the wooden tokens shrinkwrapped.

Ah ha! Well, that makes sense. Didn't want somebody opening the box and having all the little pieces fallin' all over.
