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.

Many games were packaged that way. I'm tempted to say that was the standard.

We had the licensing through Universal to reproduce the came 100% like the original, but Mattel would not give us the rights to their vintage logo.

I really wanted the logo on the box and we went back and forth for months and in the end I moved on to other things. I could revisit at some point, but not right now.

I have everything scanned and mastered like the originals and even found an old school game maker in China that had the right process to reproduce the box and board with accuracy.

Only thing that would have been different is we had a sculpted creature figure cast in four colors along with the original paper versions and an updated copyright on the box and board so there was no confusion.

What could have been....

It's a minor thing, but it would make a difference.

LFSPaul,  totallu understand the wanting of that Creature squirt gun, everybody into monsters is seeking one now a days,  a lot of competition out there.  I remember vividly actually passing on at least 2 of them 30 or so years ago out back where the dealers set up in the field at Renningers, it's around when I first started collecting seriously monster toys, and I was only seeking out items from the 60's,   I figured there would be more around since they were from the 70's,  big, big mistake on my part, all I can do now is just shake my head.  I own a lot of Creature items, I guess my 2 best pieces so far are the Hasbro paint set (very slightly started with still nice box and paints), along with the original art painting to the Golden puzzle that came out either in the 80's or 90's series of Universal monsters, I obtained this piece from e-bay over 25 years ago.

Well that anyway would explain why Mattel's lawyers weren't willing to extend him permission.
