Universal Monsters Flicker Rings!

monster_flickerrings

A nice set of rings, and the seller of this set took an outstanding photo! You can easily see both views of the Creature ring, as well as the others (if you scroll to the right, that is).

Creature From the Black Lagoon French Poster!

I'm thinking either the painter for this poster didn't have good photo reference... or just didn't care how close he got to the Gill Man's likeness!

Universal Monster Danglers!

monster_universalrubber

This is probably the most recent thing you'll ever see me showing you here... these awesome Universal Monster Danglers were offered for sale a few Halloweens ago through Walgreen's. The first year the Random Acts of Geekery participated in the Halloween Countdown, I came across this photo, and one of my readers let me know where to find it... I went out the next day and bought 'em all!

I should probably take individual photos of the ones I have for my monster-specific blogs!

Here's a classic monster game from the 1960s or so... and the seller put the Creature card right on top for the photo, too!

I've got to get this one of these days... here's what the whole set looks like:

Once the Teenage Werewolf graduates high school, he might go on to get his Online Teaching Degree so he can teach young monsters valuable life lessons.

Creature Costume!

OK, so it's a bit late for Halloween, but how great is this? A kids' costume for Halloween that actually was designed to look like the character, and no stupid logo or picture of the character on the chest of the bodysuit!

Monster Model Magnets!

monsters_magnets

Some enterprising individual decided to make magnets from the box art of the classic Aurora models, and was selling them on eBay! I suspect that Universal got them shot down, though!

Creature Bendy!

This bendy was produced in 1979, and could easily win the award for ugliest Creature toy ever!
