Great topic and thread! I am very thankful for my interest in monsters/models during the 70s or I would have never discovered this little gadget (spent an unlimited amount of hours building these)

Was it plaster of Paris and you ended up with a hollow statue?

I want to say that the resultant monsters from the molds were solid thus the muck wouldn't last you too long. We ended up making our own muck with mixed results.

I should start by saying I buy complete kits still sealed.

I finally finished my Aurora Batman set.  I started buying back in the late 1980s but really only started to focus on completing in the last five years.

Aurora monster square boxes was my jam as a young kid.  I had all of them except the witch and King Kong.  Now I just need the Forgotten Prisoner

Just starting the long box monster kits.

Are there any restrictions here, or can I discuss my Gundam model kits here too? Yay/nay?

Well, start. They're a lot easier than they look, especially for Gundam kits, my area of experience. You don't need glue, you don't need paint. Nice and easy, and fun. And it's immensely satisfying having this ultra-atriculated model figure at the end of it and being able to say 'yeah, I made that'.

Newest addition. I was busy and missed out on bidding higher on the Cro man and Neanderthal kits :cry:

These are great! I had them all back in the day. Last one I remember getting was that huge red T-Rex with the glow in the dark teeth! :x
