Say what you will about this day and age, it is a GREAT time to collect toys. What I would of done for that Creature and that Jabba as a young Monster Kid in the 80s.
Not only did I get several great monster toys, I also managed to finish up my Weird TV Collection. Took nearly twenty years, but was well worth it. Make sure and check out this amazing series if you haven't.
And not a Christmas gift, I recently picked up this great hardcover best of Lovecraft at Barnes and Noble. Only twenty bucks brand new and contains more stories than even the Necronamicon collection from several years back. Apparently, it is part of a Barnes and Noble hardcover classics series.
