Happy Halloween!


Here's the Castle Films' digest version of this movie, which may or may not be the same version included in the release above:

Here's the box art for what was probably the above version:

Mego Mummy!


As you can see, the Mego Corp's Mummy figure was part of a "Mad Monsters" line. They were "stuck" with that name after AHI produced their "World's Greatest Super-Monsters" line, which superficially resembled the Mego packaging style. Or maybe Mego's came first, and AHI jumped on the bandwagon. I'm not entirely sure!

These figures came in glowing and non-glowing versions. As you can see, the Mummy's outfit is silkscreened, although with a few details actually sewn on, if you look closely!

Imperial Toys Mummy!


This action figure with limited articulation was part of an early 1980s or so line of monster figures!

Monster Madness Board Game!


A great board game for fans of the Universal Monsters! This came turns up fairly often on eBay, and can be had fairly cheaply! I'm happy to say I have a copy of it in my meagre monster game collection!

Monster Pencil Sharpeners!


Man, kids in the 1960s who had money had it made for monster stuff, am I right?

Mummy Mask in Comic Book Ad!


With Halloween nearly upon us, I thought you might enjoy this ad from the December, 1976 cover-dated DC comics, which advertised costumes... including a Mummy mask!

"Mummy" Clip!

Here's Im-Ho-Tep's back story... or as the person who uploaded it called it, "History for Mummies"!

Aurora Mummy Model Kit!


The Aurora monster model kits were a regular part of many a monster fan's childhood in the 1960s and 1970s... here's the glow-in-the-dark version of their Mummy kit, which featured some pieces molded out of glow-in-the-dark plastic. (Glow-in-the-dark stuff was big in the 1970s)

Mummy (Universal) Poster!


One of the classics! Sorry it's not a larger picture.

Mummy (Hammer) Still!


While the Mummy may be missing here, it is a nice, moody still, isn't it?

Glow-In-The-Dark Mummy Figure!


A relatively recent reissue of the classic Marx Toys figures!

Mummy (Universal) Herald!


A nice item here... it's a herald (sort of a promotional flyer) for Universal's Mummy! I rather enjoy the die-cut shape on it, myself... I only wish I had a larger photo of it to share!

Remco Mummy Figure in the Box!


Thought you'd enjoy seeing a photo of the Remco Mummy action figure in its original box!

Mummy (Hammer) Still!


Wow, two days in a row of Hammer Mummy! Didn't expect that to happen so soon... but it does give the Hammer version its due here, eh?

Mummy (Hammer) Trailer!

Figured it's been 11 days since I started this blog, and I still hadn't hit any Hammer Mummy stuff yet... so this will help make up for it!

Marvel Comics' Living Mummy 1975 Sticker!


Marvel Comics introduced a lot of characters based on the standard monster movie archetypes in the early 1970s, when the Comics Code Authority finally unclenched enough to allow it... so they introduced their own version of the Frankenstein Monster, Dracula, a Werewolf (by Night), a Zombie, and The Living Mummy! He's pictured above, courtesy of a 1975 sticker set sold with sticks of really awful gum.

As you can see, these stickers also came with some really awful jokes, too!

The Mummy's Curse Toy!


All I know of this 1970s toy is what you can figure out from the photo!

Creepy Classics Figures!


Apologies for making you scroll to the right to see the Mummy in this set. These PVC figures were sold a few Halloweens ago at the Dollar Store, and there was also a set of matching finger puppets. Cool stuff, especially for a buck each! I saw some of these turn up in June around here, so there's a chance you might find 'em in your area, too, if you're lucky.

Mego Mad Monsters Boxes!


Mego is perhaps best known for their 1970s 8" action figures of superheroes, Planet of the Apes, Star Trek... and the Mad Monsters, boxes seen above!

Oddly, rather than getting the rights to the classic Universal monsters, they decided to do their own versions (while trying to at least make you think of the Universal versions).

Don Post Mummy Mask!


Well, I'm pretty sure these were made by Don Post... I'm willing to admit I could be wrong! That's the Phantom of the Opera on the left, by the way.

Castle Films Catalog Pages!


I wish I had a better picture of this page to share, so you could actually read what's on the page...

But since I don't have that, how about I show you what the Castle Films version of The Mummy looked like?

8" Remco Glow-In-The-Dark Mummy!


Remco didn't just make Mini-Monsters... they also made a line of 8" action figures, with glow-in-the-dark features, plus if you pressed a button on the back of the figure, the arms would close together in a "clutching" action! Unfortunately, the Mummy figure is one of the lesser ones in the series.

Mini Monsters Playset!


Yesterday, I showed you the Remco 1980s Mini-Monster Mummy, and said there were few accessories made for the line... well, so far as I know, this playset was actually the only one!

Welcome to Curse of the Mummy's Blog!

And here's the very first "official" post!


Today's featured item is the Remco Mini-Monster of the Mummy, pictured above with the Creature of the Black Lagoon. Made in the same scale as Kenner's popular Star Wars line, there were few accessories made for this series.
