Lincoln Monsters Flash Back!
From the 1976 Montgomery Ward Christmas Catalogue comes the most iconic image the toy line would inspire: an all-out battle with the Mego World’s Greatest Superheroes.
Now in 2024, the Lincoln Monsters will soon be looking to spar with the 50th Anniversary releases from Mego. Who wins? We all do.
ABOUT 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 Count Dracula.
The 8″ Evil of Count 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.
