Marx Monster Figures!

For many collectors, these are some of the most highly-prized items to get, just because just about everyone had 'em as kids, I think!

AHI Monster Action Figures!

I always thought that AHI's Frankenstein head sculpt was outstanding... way better than one should reasonabily expect from AHI products!

I Was A Teenage Frankenstein Fake Comic Book Cover!

driveinmovieclassics46.jpg

This will require a bit of explaining... a long time ago (it feels now), I used to write a weekly column for World Famous Comics called "Cover Stories," in which I'd usually present five comics covers with a related theme. But once a month, I'd have "Comics They Never Made," in which I faked up comics based on licensed properties that didn't actually exist, and I even came up with some stories for the comics or other stuff.

Anyway, somewhere along the line, I thought, "What if Charlton Comics had produced their own line of movie adaptation comics, like Dell Comics did? What movies would be adapted?" Since they had actually published comics based on Gorgo, Konga, and Reptilicus, I figured they'd go for genre stuff, and so I came up with the title "Drive-In Movie Classics," and started creating the series! This was issue 46 of the fictional series.

Monster Game!

This photo is of an item in my personal collection... it's pieces of "The Monster Game," where the object is to collect all the pieces you need to build your monster, and the first to do so gets to assemble the monster on the lab table, and turn the crank to put him upright... and the monster's eyes open!

Cragstan Creeping Crawling Hand!

Box art here is obviously based on the Aurora Frankenstein kit, just changed enough to avoid a lawsuit, but still evoking the monster!
