(Video) Monsterama Episode 18 – Collecting the Creature from the Black Lagoon

The Most Collectible of Classic Monsters

Creature from the Black Lagoon Collectibles

Watch this video and see why collecting the Creature from the Black Lagoon is such a passion for classic monster collectors.

The last of the great Universal Monsters to come along, the Creature from the Black Lagoon swam his way into our Monster Kid hearts in glorious 3-D in 1954.  This episode of Monsterama highlights the wondrous toys and collectibles made in the likeness of this classic monster and takes us on a tour of the greatest Creature collection of them all with the “Arizona Gillman” himself, creature collector John Gilbert.

Over the next few weeks, we’ll dive deep into collecting the Creature and cover everything from original movie posters to the more recent Sideshow Collectibles figures.  Oh and don’t worry, we’ll spend some time with Hasbro‘s paint by numbers set and a little company called Arak Hamway along the way.

Don’t drool on your keyboard, Monster Kids!

The Wolf Man CollectionI’m a Wolf Man fan and have been all my life, so I thought I’d share a few pieces from my Wolf Man collection

Starting from the left, we have my custom clay Wolf Man face sculpture  (sans one fang) that I made in 4th grade art class — still love it in spite of it’s obvious amateur flaws

In the center, my 1963 Wolf Man Soaky from Colgate-Palmolive

On the right, my 2009 Funko Force Wolf Man (despite the fact that the package says “The Werewolf”)

We’re half-way through the week and that is enough to get me howling at the moon — have a great day!
