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.
I’ve also made a few other collectible pins based on knockoffs and characters from this website. Look for a few more designs coming very soon.
That’s why we created Toy-Ventures magazine, an old-school print publication dedicated to vintage toys from the 1960s to the 1990s. Each issue is packed with never before seen images and information written by some of the top collectors. We’ve got nine issues and climbing; please check our page here or visit our store.
