MOON MONSTER geek fest!

I was cruising Ebay a few nights ago, and was about to call it a night and tap the "close" button, when I came across this item for bid or "buy now".

And, from looking at the picture, it was a tall poster...over 6 feet!!

I totally flipped 'cause I knew it was the MOON MONSTER!! (echo effect) The very creature that I lusted for (yes...I lust for monsters...some times.) back in the day. If the image doesn't ring a bell, maybe this ad from the comics will jog your memory...(click on it and enlarge)

Yea...the ad never says it's a poster of a moon monster (slight echo), and the masks you get with it are not actual rubber masks (by Topstone), but are photos of rubber masks (by Topstone). I always wondered how they could even mail a 6 foot moon monster (very small echo, now) for a buck...much less send rubber masks, 4 x 5 photos, etc. The mystery is solved. You'd get a stack of paper that cost them 15 cents...max! BUT...you joined the Monster Fan Club...what a deal, huh?

Comic Book Heaven I'll let you know when the MOON MONSTER (burp) get's to my mailbox....very much in the same fashion it should have arrived over 30 years ago. Another mystery solved.

Sweet. I think the Johnson Smith company had a Frankenstein that was a poster, billed as a monster. 2-D monster I guess. I WANTED to believe I'd get a 7 foot realistic dummy, but suspected something was fishy. Sent off for the "Oop's, somebody missed" simulated bowel movement instead. Looked so real, my grandmother picked it up with a paper towel (thought the dog did it) and was about to throw it out in the front yard, when I grabbed it from her. What a face she made while stretching her arm out, unsuccesfully trying to keep it away from me.

You should'a bought the Frankenstein poster...it would'a been a good investment. Here's the Jack Davis version on Ebay:
I can't afford the poster now...and I couldn't afford it then! How's that for phuct!?
