Raymond Castile, reporter and documentary film producer ('In Love with Toys', 1995), has put together a collection of classic monster toys and masks from the 1960's to the 1990's. Hundreds of photographs await you on The Gallery of Monster Toys, many showing items that can make a ghoul drool.

Prompted by the threat of these collections being forgotten, Castile has gathered images to remind us of what was, including Mego toys and masks by Don Post.

When asked what his favourite toy was, Castile picked the AHI Creature from the Black Lagoon action figure (specifically, the 'male' version with the wider waist).

If you reach the end of his catalogue and haven't run out of steam, go to his links page and start monster hunting all over again.

Here are just a handful of my personal favourites from his site.
