Toys on Hive - The Wolfman Vintage Plastic Model

in Toys on Hive3 months ago
Last time I shared my Frankenstein model this time it is The Wolf Man from 1962. I was pretty young when these were assembled so I think my dad did most of the work. I was much more likely to have been his "assistant". 😀

These monsters were based on characters from Universal Pictures movies released in the late '30s to early '40s. I remember watching these on TV with my dad in the '60s. I'm pretty sure my dad was probably reliving some of his early teenage years while building these with his son 20 odd years later.

Wolfy is missing a pinky finger. The ravages of time I guess. 😁

A look at the Aurora labeling on the underside of the model with the 1962 date shown.


A last look at the sad state of The Wolfman's pants. 😃

Still to come... The Mummy, The Creature (from The Black Lagoon), and The Hunchback of Notre Dame. Aurora seemed to be upping there game as the details on these next three were a step up from the first two.

The attention to details is really quite remarkable on them

As the years went by they seemed to add more detail to each model. The next three from 1963 are even more detailed.

wow so cool. reminds me old movies with the werewolf when movies where new

Yep, these are based on the old Universal Pictures movies from the late '30s to early '40s. Probably movies my dad saw in the theater when they were originally released. :)
