Gabriel Monster Machine
Anybody remember this thing from 1977? Snagged this today for $4 at the thrift....
Gabriel's MONSTER MACHINE:
Essentially it's a mix n' mold kinda set. You can make plaster monsters with the molds and then paint them. My favorite are the generic alien guys HORNAGOR and GALAXOGG. I may actually try to use this over the weekend...
Nice find. I'd try it out if I got one, then its monster heads for everybody!!
I had one of these as a kid. The play value was limited and after a few tries at high art I used up the rest of the mix making BB gun targets that exploded very nicely! I did have one nicely painted Jekyll/Hyde penicl holder that sat on shelf for years unti a cat broke it. It would be cool to make those today with a decent grade of plaster of Paris.
neat! I've never heard of that before. I couldn't pass it up for $4 either....
are you looking to sell that,im interested.thx,mike
If you do try it out, I'd really like to buy one of the Frankenstein heads if you can make me one.
LMK and thanks, Mike
Sorry, I didn't realize this was from June, but I would like to have one of the Frankenstein casts if you still have it.

Reason: old post
i found one years go the same way. I think a buddy just used plaster in it. mine didn;t come with any of the mix. the molds are cool.
ha ha, funny this thread was bumped. After much trial and error, I got the thing to work and made a couple casts. Anyway, the thing is up on my shelf right now, if anybody wants it, make me an offer.......

I had one of these as a kid. It was the only present that left a real impression on me. I just found an old mold I made back in 79 in my Mom's crawl space. No machine in sight.
If anyone knows were I can find one I would appreciate it.
I was outbidded on EBAY in the last 10 seconds.
($100.00 if in good shape)
