Aurora Plastics (Re-post)

During the 60's Aurora Plastics pretty much RULED the scene. They had the best authorized kits from current comics, TV & films PLUS they made MONSTER KITS!
Here's a selection of their ads from the swingin' 60's-

Aurora was also pushed VERY heavily by the Captain Company pages in the back of the Warren magazines (Famous Monsters, Creepy, Eerie & Vampirella) as seen by these ads below.

But then in the 70's, as way say, things got a little strange....check out this ad that ran in DC comics in the early 70's and you'll see what I mean...

Yep that's right...let's just go through it again.....They need a VICTIM! Oooohkaaay.....

Heh heh indeed! You go Franky!

Serves her right for wandering around at night on the streets of New York in a bikini...

This panel also features my favorite line! Can you believe this!?! That's COLD!
And how about this panel below. I mean, what's going on HERE? time you visit New York, make sure you don't forget to visit Mistress Vampirellas' Emporium of Ouch?! Sheesh!

And finally, look at the fevered expression on this kid as he gets on with whatever it is he's doing... ( I really don't want to think about that TOO much, actually...). As we're very fond of asking around here at Data Junkie HQ - "What were they thinking?" Didn't anybody go..."uh hey, that's a little bit uh...weird there fella....." to Mr. Art Director?
....I guess not...
