(News) New Book: The Monster Art of Basil Gogos

Kickstarter Campaign For the Ultimate Tribute to Basil Gogos

Monster Art of Basil Gogos by Linda Touby cover
There were other cover artists who contributed to the zeitgeist that was Famous Monsters of Filmland magazine in the 1960s and early 1970s, but none had the same impact as Basil Gogos.  His covers were garish in their use of color and made the magazine seemingly leap from the rack into the waiting arms of young monster fans during the golden years of the Monster Boom.
Unfortunately, Basil passed away in 2017 leaving behind a legacy of creative work that inspired generations. Now the fine folks at Fantaco have teemed up with Basil’s wife Linda Touby to release the ultimate collection of his life’s work.
The Monster Art of Basil Gogos
Planned for release in April of 2019, this book will be available  in both hardcover and softcover. The softcover will have 3 variant covers produced exclusively for Kickstarter backers. Here is the hardcover edition:

FantaCo’s Kickstarter is now live and will run for 25 days during September 2018. with both hardcover ($99.95) and softcover ($40) editions available to fans that want to get their orders in early. The Kickstarter campaign begins the first week of September, and will run for 25 days.

During that time, fans can pick up the book for a reduced rate, and hardcover versions can be signed by Touby. After the Kickstarter ends, the price of the book will increase, and the project is slated for publication in late spring of 2019. Additionally, the hardcover version will feature 16 pages of material that will not be available in the softcover editions.  Linda will be signing a limited number of the hardcovers for the Kickstarter campaign.

Collecting Playmobil: Take-Along Haunted House Playset & Monsters

Playmobil Releases Updated Haunted House & Monster Figures

Playmobil Take-Along Haunted House Box

Founded in 1974, Playmobil is the largest toy company in Germany and a favorite of kids and collectors for generations.  While monsters and spooky characters have been offered by the company over the years, there seems to be a more concentrated effort for Halloween-themed playsets from the company now with the announcement at Toy Fair 2018 in New York earlier this year of a brand new Playmobil Haunted House Playset.

Playmobil Take-Along Haunted House Playset

Playmobil Take-Along Haunted House Playset Pieces

The playset is available now wherever toys are sold. I found  it online at Amazon for $39.99

Playmobil Monster Figures

The playset includes 2 figures, an updated Vampire and “Monster” which looks more like the Frankenstein Monster than earlier iterations. Playmobil does not hold a Universal license and so bases it’s characters more loosely on public domain monsters of lore and fiction.

In addition to the two figures included in the playset, Playmobil has released 4 new spooky characters, including a Mummy, Grim Reaper,  Witch and updated ‘Wolfman.’

Duo-Packs Available Soon

Available now for pre-order at Entertainment Earth, the following dual blister packs will ship in October 2018:

9307 Vampire & Monster

9308 Mummy & Grim Reaper

9309 Wolfman & Witch

Playmobil Duo-pack Monsters Blister Packs

Previous Monster-Themed PLAYMOBIL Products

PLAYMOBIL has offered previous versions of the haunted house playlet as well as spooky character figures through the years.

The Playbox Haunted House (5638) was released in 2015 and included an earlier iteration of the Vampire and Monster figures.

Playmobil Haunted House Playbox 5638

Playmobil Playbox Haunted House Box 5638 Back

This playlet is still widely available at retail price of $19.99. At this writing, I found new sets of the Playmobil Haunted House on eBay and on Amazon.

Previous versions of the monster figures have been available as well in different series through the years:

Vampire Duo-Pack (5239) from 2013

Playmobil Vampires Duo Pack 5239

Available on Amazon for $34


Playmo-Friends Werewolf (6824) from 2016

Playmobil Werewolf Blister Pack 6824

Available on Amazon for $11.99


Fi?ures Blind Bag Series Ghoul Butler (9946) from 2017

Playmobil Fi?ures Ghoul Butler


Fi?ures Blind Bag series Zombie (9446) from 2017

Playmobil Fi?ures Zombie 9446

While unopened Fi?ures blind bags are easy to find online, you take the gamble that you will get some other random figure. The easiest way to add the monstrous figures is to buy them loose, which you can easily do for $5 or so for these newer figures on eBay:

Playmobil Fi?ures Zombie on eBay

Playmobil Fi?ures Ghoul Butler on eBay

Playmobil Ghost figure (3317) from 1983

Playmobil Ghost 3317

Available for over 20 years, this figure is the first ‘spooky’ character from Playmobil and as a result isn’t hard to find. Mint in box figures show up for $20-$30 on eBay and loose figures are easy to find for $10 on eBay.

While I’ve never collected Playmobil, I did love these toys as a kid and I really like both Haunted House playlets. I’ll be adding at least one of these to my Halloween decor this year and maybe even keep it on display year-round. We’ll see!

Do you collect Playmobil? If so, what else should we know about these fun toys? Would you add these to your monster or Halloween collection now that you know about them? Let us know your thoughts!

 

Monster Cereal Fun & Games

Target Exclusive Monster Crunch: The Breakfast Battle Game & Monster Cereal Puzzle
Monster Cereal Mascots

Summer is winding down and for us monster kids that means we’re edging closer to the most wonderful time of year, Halloween. And in the grocery aisle, that means the General Mills Monster Cereals will soon make their annual appearance.  Boo Berry, Count Chocula and Franken Berry should start creeping around cereal aisles across the U.S. at the end of this month.

New this year, the trio also will be appearing in the game section of the store (along with Fruit Brute and Fruity Yummy Mummy) in “Monster Crunch: The Breakfast Battle Game.”  

Monster Crunch game

Between last year’s cool Universal Monsters Halloween costumes and decor,  the new Mego action figure launch and now the General Mills Monster Cereal games, Target continues to be a new go-to retailer for exclusive retro monster goodies!
Monster Crunch Game

Starting August 26, Target will stock the Monster Crunch game. It also will be available on Target.com.

“We loved the idea of bringing Monster Cereals fun beyond breakfast or a midnight snack. Monster Cereals are only available for a limited time for Halloween, so the retro game gives us an opportunity to share these beloved characters with families and cereal fanatics year-round,” says Taylor Roseberry, assistant marketing communications manager for Monster Cereals.   “It’s been a few years since Fruit Brute and Fruity Yummy Mummy cereals have been available, so this year we are excited to introduce these characters through fun game play and activities.”  

Fruity Yummy Mummy cards from Monster Crunch game

So, what made the Monster Cereals game-worthy?   

The characters now span generations, and the concept of eating a bunch of delicious cereal is relatable and simple enough to adapt into a family-friendly game.  Big G Creative describes Monster Crunch as follows:

In this fast-paced game of luck and strategy, players collect as many Cereal Cards in their Bowls as they can. Each Monster has special powers to give you an advantage and help you gobble up the most cereal. Use Milk Tokens to combine Cereal Cards and take bigger bites. The Monster Cereals character that munches the most wins the game! Fruit Brute Cards from Monster Crunch game

Want more of the Monsters?  

All five of them are featured in a 500-piece Monster Cereals puzzle, also appearing first at Target, this month.

The official launch of the Monster Cereals games was earlier this month at Gen Con Gaming Convention, and as a result, both Monster Cereal Puzzle and Monster Cereal Crunch Game are already available on eBay along with a wide variety of vintage monster cereal collectibles,  if you don’t want to wait for them to roll out at your local Target store.

The Monster Crunch board game will be available for $19.99 and the puzzle retails for $12.99, both are exclusively available at Target.    

It’s great to see so much licensed activity with these classic Monster Cereal mascots. Earlier this summer, Beeline Creative released a collection of Monster Cereal Tiki Mugs and Funko released this SDCC exclusive set of Fruit Brute and Yummy Mummy Funko Pops

Everything Old is New Again: Mego Is Back with Retro Action Figures

Officially Licensed Bela Lugosi Dracula Included in Wave 1 Mego FiguresDracula Bela Lugosi Mego Packaging

Amidst all the fun new classic monster merchandise to be found at San Diego Comic-Con 2018, nothing is more exciting to me personally than the return of Mego action figures! It isn’t overstatement to say that Mego was the defining toy brand for many a 70s childhood with their lineup of super heroes, Planet of the Apes and classic monster dolls, I mean, action figures!

Mego figures are highly collectible and there are passionate communities on the internet with great expertise on these classic toys. These groups have been abuzz about the return of Mego and it’s iconoclastic founder, Marty Abrams, since Mego Meet earlier this summer.

At Comic-con, Mego revealed its Wave I  line-up which will be sold exclusively at Target stores in the U.S. starting this summer. Decidedly retro in it’s lineup, the single figure that has our rapt attention is the new Bela Lugosi Dracula figure. Officially licensed by Lugosi Enterprises, this is

This figure is eight-inches and true to the original Mego stye. Sold exclusively at Target, it will retail for $14.99.

Mego Mad Monster Figures

The fact that Mego officially licensed Lugosi’s likeness is intriguing simply because Mego’s previous run at classic monster action figures, the much loved Mad Monsters lineup from 1974, were intentionally public domain versions of the classic Universal Monsters. Dreadful Dracula, The Human Wolfman, The Horrible Mummy and the Monster Frankenstein drew influence from the literary world rather than the Universal characters and were a huge hit with 70s kids then and collectors today.

While a dedicated article about Mego’s Mad Monsters is well past due on this website, there is little I could add that isn’t included in this well-done video from the Mego Museum and Plaid Stallions gang.

Watch the Mega Mad Monsters documentary:

The Mad Monster figures are tremendously collectible and can be quite expensive. A quick survey of eBay shows the several current auctions averaging around $75 for loose figures and several hundred for figures in package.  Figures Toy Company re-issued these figures a few years back and they can be easily found online for $15 at EntertainmentEarth

Mego is planning a Wave 2 release this October so we have reason to hope that more classic monsters will be included in the lineup. Which monsters do you most hope to see? Do you want licensed or unlicensed figures?

Ladies and Gentlemen, I Give You KONG… from Mezco!

Kong Gets New 7″ Action Figure from Mezco ToyzKing Kong Mezco FigureThe King Kong of Skull Island figure stands approximately 7” tall, is designed with over 25 points of articulation, and includes interchangeable hands and head portraits.

Mezco Toyz is known for their incredibly detailed figures but their classic horror / science fiction offering has previously been limited to their fantastic Frankenstein’s monster 1:12 Figure.

So it’s welcome news that they are adding the King of Skull Island to their lineup with this beautifully detailed 7″ figure.  As a huge fan of Kong, I’m excited they included multiple head options to capture his personality beyond that of a raging beast.  I would have liked to see a more gentle/emotionally expressive option for the closed mouth face, but that’s only a nit-pick on my end. In general, I think this figure is pretty great and will definitely be adding it to my Kong collection!

THE KING KONG OF SKULL ISLAND FIGURE FEATURES:

  • 17.78cm tall, highly detailed King Kong sculpt
  • 28 points of articulation
  • Two (2) interchangeable head portraits
  • Five (5) interchangeable hands including a holding hand for figurine accessory
  • One (1) set of shackles with real chains
  • One (1) scaled Ann Darrow figurine

This cool figure is available now for pre-order with shipment  estimated just in time for the holidays (December 2018).

Classic Monster Comics: Charlton Comics GORGO #1

Classic Monster Comics – Charlton Comics GORGO #1Gorgo #1 Charlton Comics 1960

GORGO, No. 1 (Charlton Comics, 1960)

Spewed up from the bottomless depths by a volcanic eruption that reached back 2,000,000 years in time to give the world one horrifying glimpse of a species we had thought extinct. Gorgo came forth, a thing of terror with mastic jaws, awesome fangs capable of crunching ships or tanks…as a dog does with a bone! Gorgo’s incredible strength was to paralyze the greatest city on earth..rout the mighty British Navy..and teach man once more that his own greed is his most terrible danger..and if unchecked could someday destroy him!

Gorgo #1 is a straight-froward adaptation of the 1960 MGM film of the same name and features the incredible artwork of Steve Ditko, the co-creator of Spider-Man and Doctor Strange among others and one of the most influential comic book artists of all time.

The press book for the movie which was sent to theater owners reads;

“Magazine wholesalers will distribute this comic book movie edition across the country timed to the release of Gorgo. For extra profits arrange for its sale in your theater lobby at least ten days in advance of play date, and, of course, during the run of the film itself. Set off a prominent corner of the lobby for a table on which to display the books. In addition, contact local retail outlets for windows, store counter and newsstand displays, tie-in ads and other promotions. Do not overlook the magazine racks in drugstores and bookshops. These books suggest an outlet not usually seen – the book pages of your local paper. Run a small ad announcing your play date, tied in with the local distributor of the Gorgo publications” 

Pretty impressive promotion plan for a comic book based on a movie!

Charlton Comics was not known for it’s high production values and, as a result, finding high grade copies of any of their early 1960s comics is not easy. As a result, this is not an inexpensive comic.  While Gorgo doesn’t hold the lasting popularity of that other Japanese giant amphibious reptile from the deep, the beautiful artwork by Ditko makes this a highly collectible comic.  Current price guide values list Near Mint copies of this comic at $200, though lower grade issues range more in the $45-$75 range.  All in all, not bad for a .10 cover.

At the time of this writing, there are no  current auctions on eBay  of Gorgo #1 though multiple copies of later Ditko- drawn issues are available.

For the complete Ditko run on this title, I recommend the highly informative and beautiful collection by Yoe Books titled Ditko Monsters: Gorgo! released in 2013 but still available on Amazon:

Monster Cereal Mascots Go Geeky Tiki

General Mills Monster Cereal Tiki Set Coming Soon From Beeline Creative

Monster Cereal GeekiTiki Set

The company behind last year’s Universal Monsters tiki mugs, Beeline Creative, is taking breakfast to a whole new level with this new set of General Mills Monster Cereal Tiki Mugs.

These mugs are available for pre-order now at Entertainment Earth.

Count Chocula, Frankenberry, and Boo Berry – General Mills’ beloved cereal monster mascots- are combined with the unique stylization seen in traditional Tiki culture in these 3 one-of-a-kind 18 to 22-ounce ceramic mugs. They’re top-shelf dishwasher and microwave safe.

These mugs will first be sold at San Diego Comic-Con 2018 at the Entertainment Earth Booth #2343. You can pre-order the complete set now at Entertainment Earth for $60. If supplies remain after the show, your order will be filled and shipped to you then, in August 2018.

My guess is that these will sell out at Comic-Con but I also think Beeline will produce more based on pre-orders at Entertainment Earth. So I think it is a risk worth taking though it may take longer to get them then August or September. Us collectors are used to being patient and if you’re like me, you really can’t live without these in your collection.
