It's time once again for a gallery of monster and horror movie collectibles! As I've no doubt mentioned before, none of these are items that I have for sale, and I recommend that if you'd like to add them to your collection to check on eBay.
First up are these lobby cards from Killers From Space... Ah-ha, now we know what planet Jerry Colonna is from, yes?*
Next, this paperback adaptation of the movie Kingdom of the Spiders! This is one of the few spider-themed horror movies that didn't use gigantic spiders, but instead normal sized ones.
AHI King Kong squirt gun!
This King Kong coloring book was based on the animated series that was on ABC in the late 1960s.
Neither one of these King Kong costumes was a winner in my eyes!
I wish I had a more legible copy of this page from The New York Times about Fay Wray and King Kong to include in a "Monster Scrapbook" installment!
We're back to the animated Kong for this board game!
Believe it or not, this is supposed to be a plush animated Kong!
When Dino DiLaurentis' version of Kong was about to be released, pretty much every publisher seemed to put out a one-shot magazine or book about King Kong to cash in on it, as seen above! Gold Key even did a reprint of their 1960s adaptation.
