Here's a pic of the four packages of two each.  The colors vary in these packs, between the original three colors: orange, yellow, purple.
 


Great stuff! The unopened packs are so tough.

Always a favorite. Still remember the day I got my Pop-Tops (all on one card, btw) at
the GEM Department Store on the Berlin Turnpike (Ct.) - Think I was 7  at the time...

Nice photo of the skeleton. The skeleton's expression has a Harryhausen quality to it.

Those are actually pretty cool.  I may branch into those one of these days.  They remind me of some toy I had as a kid.

You can sharpen them a bit in your photo programs very easily too

Great displays. I had the target set and always thought the figures - especially the exocutioner and death - were genuinely scary.
am I remembering correctly that the gun in the target set was essentially a blow mold, and you squeezed the sides to pop the ball out?

No, it's a hard plastic, spring action gun. I don't know how hard it shoots those balls though.  I wonder if it's hard enough to put a hard plastic or steel ball instead and do some damage?

There is also a Chess/Checkers set from MPC.  It is not great to display. The monsters are all red and black and it came with a set of regular checkers.   I am not sure, but that may be the only place the red monsters were available.

I believe it was the only way to get the red MPC Weird Monsters. Bobby, do you have any pictures of the checker set packaging? I've never seen one. Those red MPC monsters are scarce, and I don't think anyone could repop them convincingly today.
