The Most Collectible of Classic Monsters
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!
