Our Favorite Modern Collectibles of Classic Monsters
We live in a wonderful time for genre fans and collectors. Our fellow monster kids have created companies who specialize in modern collectibles of classic movie and TV characters that are great to collect in their own right. We also know not every monster kid or collector has the time or inclination to spend big bucks on the beloved monster and sci-fi toys, magazines and movie posters of our youth.
As a collector, I try to balance vintage with modern memorabilia and I take the same approach here on Collecting Classic Monsters. Anyone who has been with us for awhile knows we love to talk about vintage collectibles and memorabilia here on CCM, but we also make a concerted effort to not get stuck in the past.
With that in mind, we created our inaugural holiday gift guide as a resource for our fellow collectors and fans of classic monsters. We spent a lot of time putting this together and curating some of our favorite monster kid stuff – from vinyl kaiju figures to classic sci-fi model kits as well as must-have books, magazines and DVDs that classic monster fans need to have in their library.
Through the wonders of digital publishing, we were also able to embed hot links for each and every item in our gift guide. That means, if you see something you can no longer live without, you can simply click on the link within the gift guide and wind up at the website where you can order it. All the images are clickable links too!
Here’s a sample of the what’s inside the gift guide:
Our goal is to curate some of the coolest collectibles out there and then make it really easy for you to add them to your collection.
We had a ton of fun designing this guide and made it a tribute to those wonderful mail order ads in the back of our favorite classic monster magazines or yesteryear. Modern-day monster collectibles presented in a guide that looks like those old Captain Co. ads from of Famous Monsters. T’s exactly that balance we are aiming for here at CCM.
Our 2015 Holiday Gift Guide is entirely free for our readers. All we ask is that you subscribe to our weekly newsletter in return. It’s our gift to you for making our first year a great one!
If you’re already a newsletter subscriber, you still need to enter the email address you’d like us to send the holiday gift guide to. Sorry to ask you to do this extra step, but those spam filters out there don’t like us sending emails with attachments so this helps us get the gift guide to everyone who wants it and no one who doesn’t.
