Hey there everyone, your action figure expert here Ethanomicon, my first post, but boy is it sweet. O.K. here goes.....guess what the best toy ever created is? No, it has nothing to do with He-Man or even Transformers. This little Gem is from a toy named Mad Scientist Monster Lab! it was made by Mattel in about 1986 and it was thee greatest toy "Everrr!" (in evil creature voice)

That's right, now you remember, it was on the top shelf at Toys R Us calling your name every time you saw it. But your parents didn't buy it for you because they were hippies or just plain mean, or both. Some were lucky enough to have this, not me of course. With that being said, basically the object of the toy is to build a monster skeleton, add monster flesh and the fry the flesh off the monsters bones. Um that is very cool, yes?

Yes sir this was so cool, yet I never was able to enjoy this awesome thing as a youth but after much research I found one on E-bay and now I own an unopened Monster Lab and it rules. Unfortunately, I have no pictures of the actual process of this toy. What I do have is a fucking movie of this awesomeness. "You are welcome!" (in monster voice again). Yes witness the 1st Winsbyfilms production courtesy of Ethan Winsby and Illogical Contraption.

Editor's Note: Keep on the lookout for upcoming Winsbyfilms Productions, premiering exclusively on Illogical Contraption. Brutal!

I can only imagine the terrible tragedy that must have befallen the original owner who sold you the unopened Monster Lab kit.

Do you think he was born without arms, and lived for the last 20 years wishing that hands would grow so he could finally play with this?

^^^It's really the only rational explanation.

PS the original commercial for the Monster Lab is pretty amazing, too:

Keep an eye out for "Tooo gross" & "Tooo yucky", ABSOLUTE highlights.

Thanks again, Ethan. Can't wait to see Robocop 5.

I was one of those lucky kids whose parents bought him this. And yes, it was AWESOME. I will be signing autographs after the show.
