Monsters & Goblins / Terrible Monster

What: A set of hard plastic monsters with 12 known sculpts made in red, blue, green and yellow. There's a few really imaginative, bizarre designs here such as a humanoid robot with crazy eyes coming out of his head, a monster with a body consisting of either tires or donuts (or maybe just big fat rolls) and a guy who has a hole right through the middle of his body. I had no idea what these were for the longest time, but through the power of eBay their identity was revealed. They came packaged in a bag with a with a larger haunted tree figure. They were sold under at least two different names--"Monsters & Goblins" and "Terrible Monster" (these are wonderfully terrible on a few different levels, so I think that's quite a fitting name!).

When: N/A

Where: N/A

Who: Released by Fishel (Monsters & Goblins) and Hing Fat (Terrible Monster)

  2. Looks like there's a playmat included in the original bag as well. Wonder what that looks like?

    1. I've never seen specific dates, but my best guess is mid-1990s.
