Some very nice scores you guys.
I love the freakies (how many did they make?), I could really see myself getting addicted to collecting the cereal premiums and small trinket like toys from cracker jack , gumball machines etc.
I also love the Rushton clown, you should use the bottom picture as your avatar. I picked up an old mint Rushton marching band leader awhile back, it goes with my "other" collection (the one I keep secret that includes Rushton's, Steif's and Dakin's, Big eyed prints of kids, kitties, and puppies, and anything that is generally really cute and vintage)
Speaking of becoming addicted to collecting, those rack toys I'm seeing on here bring back a ton of memories and would be really fun to try and track down. But, one obsession at a time, and right now I'm obsessing over ahi, lincolns, tomlands and knock offs in general.
And the biggest monster toys I can find.
Hopefully people will keep adding to this thread, I for one love seeing what people are picking up and hearing where and how much etc.

I just picked up a Barnabas Collins game. I paid $15.00, probably to much, it was complete and the skeletons you build glow in the dark.Kinda cool I thought
There's seven characters in all. They did alot of premiums for the characters during the cereal's short existence, including magnets, race cars, boats, iron-ons, etc.

I still overpaid a bit for the four animals in my original post, but I was so excited to actually find Steiff toys in a little antique mall in Shepherdsville, KY that I grabbed the best examples they had on hand. I left several animals behind that were just too beat up to justify the price tags. I also spotted a Schuco cat in one of the cases there but it was a little too rich for my blood right now.

Love the Freakies figures. While I have a set of the balloon cars and boats I've never got the figures or magnets. Congrats on all the great stuff.
Not much of a score but I just got a Mattel Flash Gordon White Mailer Box with black outline drawings of the figures inside from Sears, (Flash Gordon, Thun, Capt Arak, Dragon Woman) empty but in almost mint condition. From what I remember Sears only offered in one christmas and toy catalog. I guess I will have to look for the other one (Ming, Zarkov, Beastman, Vultan). All I need now to finish my Mattle Flash Gordon set is Vultan and a loose backer card that shows all 8 figures form Series 1 and 2.
I recently picked up a pair of Ideal Mini Monsters dolls. These are Wolfie and Frankie. Ideal released these in the 1960's and they are rather obviously based on Eddie and Herman Munster:
There's a larger pic here:
I'd been wanting Frankie for quite awhile, and I finally got lucky on eBay last week. I picked up my Wolfie awhile back from a member of the UMA. Wolfie is wearing a repro outfit and is missing his hat and books. Frankie is wearing repro shoes but is otherwise complete and in nice shape.
Those are really cool George, I've never seen them before.
Love the new monster pick up Ramsey, aren't there two more in the series?
I thought I remember seeing others on eBay at one time.
They're two dolls that I would have no problem putting with my action figures
Thanks for remembering this thread, I'm sure lots of people here have picked up interesting toys and figured nobody here would be interested in hearing about them.
WE WOULD LOVE TO HEAR ABOUT YOUR RECENT NON-MEGO CLASSIC TOY PICK UPS!!!!!!.
