The poster art for this charming film. They went for a "Ghostbusters" look to draw in the viewing public but the film was not a financial success unfortunately.
The year of 1987 saw the release of “The Monster Squad”, a charming love letter to the Universal horror films of the 30's, 40's and 50's.
The basic plot is about Dracula assembling all the iconic monsters (and then some) to acquire an amulet that, if destroyed, will plunge the world into an era of darkness. His enemies are a group of young teens who initially aren't aware of the threat before
them. Though the film was a financial flop during its release, it has since become a cult favorite.
This resin kit from Alternative
Images is a terrific sculpt by Joe Laudati of the Gillman as envisioned by Stan Winston, probably the best realization of the Creature from the Black Lagoon in this writer's humble opinion. The kit has seven pieces, one of which is the base. Alternative Images
puts a lot of thought in their kits (I believe) in that they go out of their way to make painting easier whenever they can. In this case, the lower jaw is a separate casting like a number of their other kits along with the nameplate that is stand alone but
fits in a depression in the base.
