Monster Toys for Girls and Boys!
It seems the older I get, the more I’m reverting back to my childhood. I think nothing of buying a cool toy or begging my wife to get it for my birthday – even though 10 years ago I would have not given these toys a second thought.
Anyways, I thought I would take a few moments and share some of my latest acquisitions with you.
Monster 500 – Monster Cars
Small matchbox style cars with oversized monster drivers. I’ve heard this line is already discontinued but I managed to scoop up the10 that were released before they disappeared from the shelves. http://www.monster500.com/
The Inhuman Squishy Zombie
This figure has squishy brains and guts that you can poke and pull. You can dissect him and put him back together for hours of fun and wholesome entertainment. This was a Target exclusive and I don’t imagine it being available for too long.
Iron Maiden – Piece of Mind Diorama – by NECA
One of my favorite album covers from Maiden – I even dressed up like this incarnation of Eddie for Halloween one year.
Walking Dead – Rick Grimes figure – by McFarlane
These went by so quick I sort of missed them. They have some great zombie figures as well including the Crawling Zombie Girl (from season 1) and the Well Zombie (sea. 2). http://www.McFarlane.com
King Kong and Burning Godzilla – by (believe it or not) Hallmark
The classic scene of Kong atop the Empire State Building. The Godzilla is from Godzilla vs. Destroyah and when you press one of his back fins his chest glows and we get the Godzilla Roar!
Bandai 3.5” Godzilla Figures
I have Godzilla 2004 (Final Wars), Godzilla 2014, and MechaGodzilla (Tokyo SOS).
StayPuft Marshmallow Man from Ghost Busters!
This guy is about 14” and an amazing likeness.
Gorgo – Glow in the dark model kit – by Monarch Models
In the tradition of the vintage Aurora Monster Model Kits, Monarch Models has released a ‘frightening lightning’ Glow-in-the-dark version of their Gorgo Model Kit. I purchased one despite having built a non-glow in the dark version in 2014.
