Vic’s Retro Birthday Haul

Friends, as most of you know my birthday was this last Wednesday. Had a blast…spent the night working at the Arkadia Retrocade which isn’t truly working, right? My local best friends were kind enough to visit and bestow on me some awesome retro gifts that I felt I should share with you all.

What fan of the Universal Monsters doesn’t enjoy the Rankin-Bass Mad Monster Party movie? Now alongside his plastic representation of the Frankenstein’s Monster I can add this awesome Boris Karloff inspired figure from the Mad Monster Party!

But the retro monster goodness didn’t stop there. I was lucky enough to get a birthday hug by the one and only Creature From the Black Lagoon to boot! It’s a bank by the way…but I’ll never put any money in it, that’s money I could be using to expand my collection.

Though not pictured because I need to find a big enough frame for it, I also received a theatrical sized poster for Dragon’s Lair!

The real question is if Eddie Deezen from the Midnight Madness Podcast got just as much of an awesome haul as I did?
