Sayer of the Law's Test Make-Up

Monsterpalooza Week!

One of my favorite displays at this year's Monsterpalozza was presented by the Universal Monster Army. Their display was a replica of every Monster Kid's dream shop. It was like going back in time to the 1960s and finding all your favorite Monster collectibles. Then to add to the display, they included a huge replica of the Frankenstein Walker! Some neat stuff!










Godzilla!

It's been a long time since I've posted about our Japanese friend. Here he is in all his glory!
