|The Monsters Escape Their Prisons|
I have to give all due credit to The Wife for finding this goodie at The Santa Rosa Toy-Con a couple weeks back. She got a great price too. After she found it she came up to me and was all like "Here you go. I bought this for you. You like monsters" I do like Monsters! and I do like this case a lot.
It crosses a couple of my toy likes.. I dig monster toys, I dig toys made by Remco and I dig carrying cases. This is all three!
Of the figures in the "photo-shoot" only The Wolfman is original Remco. He came with the case making it more of a bargain. The rest are Super-7 Re-Action figures of the Universal Monsters. They are on the same scale and fit nicely with the case.
I think that the details on the Remco figure is better than the details on the Re-Action ones. They also have a bit more gravitas being older and such. I'm a big fan of Remco toys in general and these Mini-Monsters are amongst my fave toys that they put out.

I really like how Wolfie up there has blood all around his mouth. What a gruesome detail to add onto a kid's toy. Gruesome and Awesome!
Remco never made The Bride in their set and since she is one of my fave Universal Monsters I wanted to include her in on the fun. I think that she appreciates being thought of. Who doesn't right?
I don't really know what the glow in the dark features are. It might be that by now they've lost their glow. It's a pretty old paint job. Anyhow, it doesn't need any glow to have my love. I love it a lot and will continue to do so for years.

I have it set-up in the living room now with the Halloween stuff. I think that I'm going to keep it with the holiday stuff so I only see it once a year. That way it will retain a real special vibe for years and years to come. It would have anyway but this way it'll prolly last forever..
