Ever since the Mego Corp. produced their superheroes line with silkscreened costumes (even for the Thing and a Flame-On'ed Human Torch, assuming you know who they were), monster action figures seem to have been cursed with good sculpts on the head, hands and feet, but crappy cloth costumes that shouldn't have been cloth! Case in point: The Creature From the Black Lagoon figure above that Remco produced! I'm not sure if this one had glow-in-the-dark pieces or not, but I can tell you that this line of figures had a button on the back that, if pressed, would cause the arms to reach out and "grab".
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.
