Frankenstein Argentina Mask!

This Frankenstein mask from Argentina almost makes the monster look like a Mexican wrestler!

Power Records!

Here's some of the last "Power Records" releases, so far as I can tell! Power Records was a division of Peter Pan Records, and they originally made a splash on the market with comic book sized "book and record" sets that actually used real comic book stories (although often with some dialogue rewritten and badly re-lettered). They'd earlier done a Frankenstein one that used the first issue of Marvel Comics' "Monster of Frankenstein", but I'm not sure if the Frankenstein record here is the same record, sans book, or not! Same goes for the Werewolf one (they'd done a book and record that had the origin story from Marvel's "Werewolf By Night", too).

Playskool Frankenstein Monster!

This is kind of a nice toy, great for small kids who liked the Monster! I think you could even take the gears out and put them back in again.

Mego "Mad Monsters" Frankenstein Figure!

So, a number of days ago, I told you about the AHI Frankenstein Monster figure... well, here's the Mego Frankenstein! You can see how they tried to make it generic, yet still recognizeable to kids as the Monster.

Monster Heads!

These monster heads were either a cereal premium (I've seen -- and used to have -- glow-in-the-dark variants of these that were definitely cereal box prizes) or they may have been vending machine items!

Bride of Frankenstein Paper Doll!

You'll note that this Bride doesn't resemble the Universal Bride one little bit! In fact, she almost looks like the Groovie Goolies' "Frankie" in drag!

Monster Molds!

I have no idea what these molds were for... they could have been used for casting plaster or something similar!

AHI Frankenstein Monster Figure!

frankahi

AHI, aka Azrak-Hamway International, was a division of Remco, and is best known for their line of rack toys - toys that were blister-packed on cardboard with a hole punched for putting on wire racks in stores like Kmart and Woolworth's. Most toy collectors know them for their various Planet of the Apes, Super-Heroes (particularly Batman and Spider-Man) and Star Trek toys, but they are also known and beloved for their World's Greatest Super-Monsters action figures, which were designed to both capitalize on and compete with Mego's 8" action figure line. I think AHI was first when it came to monsters, and they licensed the Universal monsters, so when Mego came out with their own monsters line (The Mad Monsters), they had to use a more generic look.

Apparently several different variations on the Frankenstein Monster figure exist!

This still is part of my personal collection, and I scanned it at a high enough resolution you could click on it, save the highest res version, and print out a copy for yourself if you wish!
