Aurora definitely got a lot of mileage out of the monsters in their model line... they had their first series in the early 1960s, then those were reissued in new boxes (as well as with glow-in-the-dark features), and then there were the "Monster Scenes" (not sure if the Gill Man was in that set), then the "Monsters of the Movies" (I may have those two sets mixed up in order)! Most of the 1970s stuff was snap-together. I don't believe that the Gill Man was included in any of the Monogram reissues, or at least, the "Illuminators" series).
Like my other monster blogs, this blog will be featuring (for the most part, anyway), collectibles featuring the Creature From the Black Lagoon, among them toys, puzzles, games, posters, lobby cards, and stills. And on occasion, there'll be a video to watch as well!
I have been a Navy journalist, word processor, graphic designer, medical assisting student, cook, and truck driver, and am currently an eBay seller as well as an employee at a big retail store. I have been and always will be into comics, sf, tv, cartoons, monsters, oldies rock, and lots of other stuff.
