The Saturday Seen That: Revell Monster Kits

14 Sep

September 14, 2013revell

I saw these two kits at Toys R Us and I had to have them. They are reissues of classic kits I built as a kid in the 1970’s. Although these were the only 2 in the store, the line also contained Frankenstein and Dracula but some peeking around online showed that TRU only carried these two. I have no clue if the others were reissued but if the were, I want them. As a kid I built all the monster models, including the glow in the dark versions, like Godzilla with his glowing hands and scales. So when I saw them on the shelf I snatched them up and ran to the register. Best part? They were on clearance- 50% off! I got them for $5.98 each! Not a bad price for a piece of my childhood.

    Beautiful! And I can understand your reaction, if I found the Mego monsters (and superheroes) in a store, you’d hear me howl from the other side of the ocean…

    Cool! I had a Frankenstein model I put together in my youth. Could never get the skin color right–he was green like the Hulk.
