Art and toys have a lot in common. Both engage the imagination, reflect the interests and values of their time, and are paradoxically impractical yet indispensable. They exist to delight . . . yet also for something more. Remco's 1979-1981 Universal Monsters 9-inch poseable figures embody these characteristics like few other toys of the period, and the Classic Toy Portrait series pays tribute to their peculiar place on store shelves long after the monster merchandising craze of the 1960s had ended.
Ultimately spotlighting each classic toy--The Creature from the Black Lagoon, Dracula, Frankenstein, The Wolf Man, The Mummy, and The Phantom of the Opera--the first two prints in the series are now available! Click the Buy Now and Gallery navigation links above for previews and descriptions.
