Heres my complete collection of Remco's 3 3/4" Universal Monsters figures - 2 variants of each figure (1 regular version and one that glows in the dark)

First time I've seen those too, they look a lot of fun. I'd be so tempted to try out Vader with one of those Dracula capes What a Face

Do you also have the Monsterizer machine, James?

I think it could be used for a custom diorama where Anakin is being converted into Darth Vader.

Hi Marco - no Monsterizer yet unfortunately Sad Remco also made a vinyl storage case / playset that I don't have yet either . I tend to get the figures 1st in the lines I collect but I am pretty slow to get the bigger accessories because I don't really have the room for alot of big items .

These guys came out in 1980 . There are several listed on ebay right now - just search for remco creature and you'll find them Very Happy

You should be able to pick up unpackaged figures for $35 or less and can probably get ones in the package for $65 or so cyclops

Somehow, I missed this thread when it was posted. Finished my super powers run for the most part minus a few small items so decided to branch out into more vintage stuff and chose this line. If anyone has any they want to part with I made a wtb thread in the general classifieds.
