Classic Toy of the Day!

80s_remcomonsters

Here's two of the Mego-sized (and Mego-like) Remco monsters figures of the 1980s, complete with glow-in-the-dark plastic!

Why glow-in-the-dark? I'm guessing it's either because it gave Remco the opportunity to offer "new" items while just changing the plastic (and packaging)... or because they figured on a subtle tie-in with Aurora's monsters of the movies kits, which for a while were reissued with some glow-in-the-dark pieces.

These two pieces, the Frankenstein Monster and the Wolfman, featured decent enough sculpts, but the clothing on them looks just weird... like they needed some kind of material that would hang better or something.

  1. I have those. Not my favorites, because their arms are made out of loops of plastic.
