Mattel Hot Wheels #BFC-09B0B G1 Mystery Machine

From 2011 we have this nifty little 1/64 scale Hot Wheels Mystery Machine. It's a fun rendition of the classic cartoon van but after looking closely at it there's some quality issues regarding its finish - decals and paint both appear a bit ragged in spots. To a kid this wouldn't matter much because within a year the whole thing is likely to look ragged but if you're lookin' for pristine this ain't it! Well you can decide for yourself after looking at the photos. I still think it's a fun little car to go along with the others in the Haunted Village. Enjoy! Opa Fritz and Oma Bettina

Johnny Lightning #50298 2011 '57 Chevy Hearse

A Haunted Village somehow wouldn't be complete without a hearse and what cooler bone wagon could there be than a sleek black and silver '57 Chevy? This 1/64 scale offering from Johnny Lightning from 2011 fits the bill nicely. This is a nicely detailed little car complete with opening hood revealing the power plant underneath. I would really have liked an old school horse drawn hearse for the Village but haven't been able to find any. That being said but I'm really diggin' this in the meantime. Enjoy!

Xonex Movie Archive Inc - Dracula and Frankenstein Figures

I have no clue who Xonex Movie Archive Inc is or what their specialty is toy-wise but I did come across these two figures which I thought were kinda neat. They're smaller than most of the other figures we've been posting lately: Dracula is 2 5/8" (6.66cm) H Frankenstein 2 3/4" (6.98cm) H. The faces look familiar but I can't place them, but to me Frankenstein resembles Raymond Massey (aka Johnathan Brewster 'Arsenic and Old Lace' 1944). Enjoy! Opa Fritz and Oma Bettina
