    <mind blown!> This is pure Kreeptastic goodness… I don't know how you have resisted freeing those from that godawful plastic. What a find!

    As for the vest, that looks to be a remnant of a UK Astro Apes Dr. Zorma, which makes this all the more amazing. <Frank-painted-Drac = mind still blown!>

    Yeah to be fair I feel a bit silly not recognizing the Astro Apes material after the fact considering a set is less than ten feet away. It is definitely the same materials but the vest doesn't match any of the characters. It looks like leftover material mashed together, the two-toned nature of the vest is perplexing to say the very least.

    Ah, maybe it's a mash-up in the way that the Artemus vest is pieced together with inside panels?

    That's pretty neat. I'm always amazed you keep finding stuff like this. You are like a toy detective. Is there a lot of hunting down vague clues from people's memories or just a lot of happy accidents coming across most of it?
    You are a bold and courageous person, afraid of nothing. High on a hill top near your home, there stands a dilapidated old mansion. Some say the place is haunted, but you don't believe in such myths. One dark and stormy night, a light appears in the topmost window in the tower of the old house. You decide to investigate... and you never return...
