Aurora Monsters of the Movies Model!
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).
