During the 1950's, Universal monsters were syndicated throughout the country on a weekly bases by famous horror TV hosts, such as Vampira, Sir Graves Ghastly,  and Ghoulardi Show, begining the monster craze. 

In 1961, Plastic Corporation "Aurora" a U.S. toy and hobby manufacturing company, known for production of plastic model kits of airplanes, and automobiles, received licensing to create Universal Monster models. 

Frankenstein was the first model/toy to ever be created!

The kit comes in several pieces and is unpainted, leaving you to giving your creature life with the flick of a paint brush and some glue. 

A frightfully awesome piece of history!
