What Monster Kid can forget those wonderful Don Post monster masks that were for sale from the abundant ad pages of Warren's FAMOUS MONSTERS OF FILMLAND in the 1960's? Wildly popular and iconic in Monster Craze culture, they are one of the most revered items from that era. Post landed a contract with Universal Studios to develop and manufacture likenesses from their rogue's gallery of famous monsters.

In 1998, Don Post Studios re-issued them. Even these later editions command prices in the hundreds of dollars for any collector willing to spring for one. Shown here are examples from the line of re-issues.
