Since my post last January about the Gill-Man titled "My Ode to The Creature from the Black Lagoon" my own personal collection has grown considerably and I even had the pleasure meeting Ricou Browning, who played the Creature in all the underwater scenes for the 3 films! Here are some toys, poster/prints, and other odds & ends I have gathered in the last few months . . .
First and foremost I got this Gill-man figure done by Terry Cruikshank Creations at March's Monster Mania.
Next up is a Print from Chris Kuchta
If you recall in the last Creature post I talked about how I had the first two films on VHS, but wasn't able to find part 3 "The Creature Walks Among Us" back in the day. Well thanks to a seller also at Mad Monster Party I was able to score T.C.W.A.U. and another copy of the original film for $10.
At every show I go to I always pick up a few magnets at different tables. Here are 6 creatures I have gotten over the last couple years . . .
Now here are some other toys that I found and broke down and bought. First up is this toy that features not only Gill-Man but also Julia Adams aka Kay!
Here's a stuffed animal from FUNKO still in it's original bag.It's very cute, what else can I say I'm a sucker for shit like this.
A few months back I posted about "Pogs". I still own some from the 90s and some of the cooler ones were put out featuring the Universal Monsters. For this post I gathered up just the Creature ones to showcase . . .
For a dollar I found this Creature Candle at Monster Mania, so silly but not as silly as our next item . . .
Yes, it's the Creature on a skateboard!
All my life I always knew something was missing and that something was this. I can't look at this thing without laughing like a little kid!
Now here are some photos, cartoons and other Creature stuff that I found on the interwebs!
A Speed Bump Cartoon
The Greatest Rock Band Ever? I Think So!
Run Gill-Man Run!
A new figure from Mezco coming to toy shelves in 2013!
Did you know The Creature has a Daughter?
Her name is "Lagoona Blue" and she's part of the Monster High Toys!
And last, but not least to end this post. Here is a picture of me with the Creature himself Ricou Browning!
Hope you enjoyed this Creature follow up. Until next time . . .
