Oh, yeah baby! Some time ago, someone had a couple of these in the ID section as part of a post. When I saw them, I freaked 'cause I knew what they were but not what they were called. Now I do!
To recant my story with these...years ago, maybe late 80s/early 90s, I saw these in a "warehouse store" and have wanted them ever since. Being only a kid (a generally well-behaved kid who always asked his mumsy if he could use his own meager savings to buy toys), it was a bit hard to get permission to get new toys. Begging parents or grandparents doesn't always work...not even when using one's own moolah. I fell in love when I saw these, and never ever got 'em. I was so sad. Every Sunday, we stopped at this store for lunch meat and ended up looking around while mom waited in line. This place (called Gyp's) had a little of everything rolled up into one crappy store-like package. They tried to organize by aisle, but not always. Their toy aisle was kinda loose. Basically, they had a large cardboard box with a ton of these dumped in it. I always remember, week after week, rummaging through it and looking at all the different monsters in marvel at their design. They were about three bucks a pop with twelve in the assortment. I remember always carrying the $36 plus tax with me just in case. Eventually, the stock ran dry and I was devastated. My neighbor had a few of these and I was so darn jealous! I think he let me play with them once...maybe.
Years later, came the internet, then eBay, then when I got my feet in the technological water...I began snooping on the 'Bay for old toys of yore. Not remembering the name of this toy line didn't help. Randomly searching for monsters takes time and patience. I searched for years, on and off. I saw these babies in one of the ID threads on this site and it reignited my fervor. By sheer chance, I stumbled across one of these and quickly snatched it up with glee. Though happy, I wanted them all...no..."needed" the complete set! A little while later, again by chance, I saw something I could not believe! It almost seemed improbable...too good to be true...what are the odds?!?! Someone had a whole set, in good shape, with one example of a card backer...with the name! LAWDY LAWDY!!!
