Dracula Poster!

I love this poster... it looks like it could've been a comic book cover of the 1940s!

This Slurpee Cup was part of the Marvel Super-Heroes Slurpee cups of 1974, and you should know by now that means this art is from Tomb of Dracula!

Lincoln International Dracula Action Figure!

dracula_lincoln_moc.JPG

I've shown the Mego Dracula, and the Remco Dracula (in two scales)... here's Lincoln International's Dracula, which probably had the lowest MSRP of all figures in this scale! Don't worry, we'll get to the AHI Dracula some day!

Mego "Mad Monsters" Dracula Figure!

monsters_draculabox.JPG

While Mego is better known for their World's Greatest Super-Heroes, Planet of the Apes, and Star Trek action figure lines (among many others), they also produced a set of collectible monster action figures -- but they did them after AHI did their own "World's Greatest Super-Monsters" line that licensed the Universal monsters! So Mego had to use more generic versions of the monsters. While the silk-screened costumes worked well with their superheroes, I don't believe it works so well for the monsters.

There were glowing and non-glowing versions of these figures.

Famous Monster Stand-Ups!

fm_standups2.jpg

Because my "All-Dracula" photo files have been randomized, there'll be occasions like this where a follow-up photo (usually a close-up, or shot of contents of a box) will appear separately from the main photo! Anyway, this is from a "Famous Monsters" cardboard stand-up toy, that's very cool!

Monster Magic Playset!

monster_magicplayset

This is an interesting item... it's basically a standard kids' magic set, but look closely at the figures on either side. They're both altered versions of Aurora Model Kit artwork! The one on the left is a modified Frankenstein Monster, and the one on the right is a modified Dracula!
