LINCOLN MONSTERS BRINGS BACK THE RETRO MONSTER ACTION FIGURE

Lincoln Monsters brings back the Retro Monster action figure

Toronto, Ontario, October 31, 2023-

Lincoln Monsters

Lincoln Monsters

A vintage toy brand is rising from the grave! “Lincoln Monsters”  is a new collaboration from White Elephant Toyz, Absolutely Retro and Plaid Stallions, who have joined forces to make dimestore retro monsters.

The name is inspired by the legendary knock-off toy company Lincoln International. However, Lincoln Monsters reimagines the company as a 70s third-rate film studio, making exploitation and copying horror trends.

Each Lincoln Monster release and creation will center around a fictional movie from Lincoln International Studios, premiering with The Evil of Dracula.

The 8″ Evil of Dracula figure will be on a type S body, with a look inspired by the past but retaining the LM house style.

Each Evil of Dracula figure will come in a gorgeous solid box with artwork by Chris Franklin depicting the gorey poster for the movie made to cash in on Hammer horror.

Like all good horror shows, this is a double bill as Lincoln Monsters will at the same time also release “The Power of Frankenstein,” featuring a stunning poster by Chris Franklin.

Our goal is to create well-made figures inspired by cheap knock-offs,” explains White Elephant Toyz Jason Schiermeyer who adds “At a collector friendly price point.”

Subsequent releases from Lincoln Monsters will include original male and female character designs that cross multiple film genres from Science Fiction, Horror and Exploitation. The fictional Lincoln studio was known to dabble in Gothic Horror, Ozsplotation, Philippine Drive-In movies and Italian rip-offs.

We realized we all complimented each other and liked a lot of the same things and agreed on a vision,” explains PlaidStallion’s Brian Heiler, who adds, “This  is long term, we’re putting everything into new figures and ideas; it’s basically three guys saying “you know what would be cool?

Look for a newly revised Lincolnmonsters.com this November and the first offering of figures in Q1 2024. #retromonster

GI Joe Adventure Team Photo Recon

As mentioned in the latest episode of Toy-Ventures (which has a contest BTW) , I recently picked up this wonder GI Joe Adventure Team piece. I collect GI Joe but am what they call “Content.” I haven’t actively searched eBay in ages, and while I always keep my eyes open, I really didn’t have any wants. Then theecollector found a bunch of Canadian GI Joe outfits and sets.

GI Joe Adventure Team Photo Recon

GI Joe Adventure Team Photo Recon

 This one haunted me despite avoiding collecting carded outfits for money and space reasons. It was the combination of the 76 era card back with that funky orange and the fact that I realized I HAD THIS AS A KID! I kind of wasn’t in control; I just purchased it. The brain was going, “WTH?” but the heart knew what it was doing. 

 

GI Joe Adventure Team Photo Recon

 I also really dig this illustration of Joe, what a badass. The artwork is huge for this because, without it,  it’s just a jumpsuit and a camera. 

Here’s the 1976 GI Joe Catalog page for Photo Recon, which I need to redo for the site.

Mego Planet of the Apes Jail – Toy-Ventures magazine

Working on issue 10 of Toy-Ventures Magazine, and for no good reason, I thought it might be fun to try and recreate the artwork of the beautiful accessories boxes. I am something of an impulsive creature.

My first attempt is the Planet of the Apes Jail, a silly toy with an awesome box. I had a few limitations with this one, like the Jail on the box differs from the toy. Also, you can get only so much dynamic action from a type 1 Mego figure, but I got close enough to share.

Presenting the Lincoln Monsters Collectible Pins

Presenting the Lincoln International Monsters Collectible Pins by Toy-Ventures Collectibles.

The Lincoln International Monsters are one of my favourite childhood memories, and I always want to find ways to work with them. I designed each pin based on the original packaging art I’m utterly infatuated with.

The idea came because I wanted to make a set of Lincoln Monster pins for myself, and it spiralled from there. The factory I used for this was quite excellent.  I’m elated with their quality and look. Sometimes you make things for yourself, but you also want to share. You can get the Lincoln Monsters individually or as a unique carded set while supplies last.

It was also really fun laying out that card. I wanted to make it like a gumball machine card as much as possible, but my Rack Toy biases ultimately won. 

The Lincoln Monsters pins are available at our store or on eBay.

PlaidStallions : 1975 Lili Ledy Catalog – Mego Superheroes

1975 Lili Ledy Toy Catalog  from Mexico

Lili Ledy was a Mexico-based toy maker with a 30-year run until its closure in 1985.

Due to trade restrictions, the company would manufacture it’s toys on Mexican soil. Even popular Hong Kong-made American toys like GI Joe, Star Wars and Mego Superheroes had to have their Mexican-made equivalent.

This restriction resulted in some fantastic and imaginative-looking variations on what we’re familiar with.

1975 was an excellent year for Lili Ledy with several hot toys and licenses:

70s Superhero toys in Japanese Starlog – Mego, Remco, AHI and More!

I recently stumbled across this fantastic issue of Japanese Starlog, which was a lot like the US version, except its graphic design was way more exciting.
This particular issue has a feature on all the imported Superhero toys from the US you can buy. So the best way to describe it is like a Heroes World catalogue but from the future.
