The Monstore at Six Flags Part 4

The Monstore features a great Monster Plantation museum, featuring a display of some of the figures used for the original 1981 attraction model.  These were sculpted by a very friendly and talented artist named Larry Nikolai.  Many of these pieces are, well, in pieces now, sadly.

This display features the flasher monster, who looks a little like a naughtier version of The Great Gonzo from The Muppets.

Also seen here are two Marsh monsters---the one with the grasping claws is from the Treasure scene.

Next time we'll see some of the merchandise from the Monstore.

  1. Man, I was hoping these models were merchandise. 'Cause that would ROCK.

  2. Peyton: I know!! I'd love to have these.

    TokyoMagic!: Yes, I'm very happy that the park has these on display, even if some of them have missing pieces.

  3. I can't imagine what it must be like to be so creative and to actually get paid for such awesomeness. Design is much more appealing than text. Sorry to vent my jealous evils on you.

  4. Hey Ally! Something I have been thinking about is the fact that Gary Goddard Productions, the company that created these great, well-known (in the South) monsters, does not actually own the characters. That's a shame, because if they did, they'd probably have a life beyond Six Flags Over Georgia. I think it would be interesting to see an animated movie (CGI or cel or stop-motion!) or series with these beasties. Somehow, I doubt this will ever happen.
