Danny 4 Eyes What a blast from the past these are, I had quite a few of the full sized figures.

Here's the advert shown in the UK:


There was also a 9 issue comic to accompany the toys, if memory serves me correctly, the comics had a mild horror theme running through them. One of the stories featured a ventiloquist dummy.

Shadowdancer21b My big sister and I loved these! Don't know what happened to ours though...

HowardC I think the reason these never caught on was because of the akward hologram choices on the ghostlings. The holograms themselves are awesome, but they don't make sense because they all hard arms and the action figure part of their bodies have arms as well. The full-sized supernaturals didn't have this problem.

Also in an age when points of articulation were a major selling point on an action figure it isn't a good idea to release figures that barely have any joints at all.

They are a nifty little gimmick, but I can totally understand why they never caught on and to this day they aren't very popular.

Mormon_Norman I also loved the Supernaturals. I had a couple of the ghostlings and one of the full-size figures. I remember taking a ghostling into the bath because it said do not immerse in water (? I think?) and I wanted to see what would happen.

PreApocalyptica Got two completely different toy ideas that you're not sure will sell on their own? Smash 'em together!

CarpetGnome Dialed the number. Sadly, I get a recording "We're sorry, the number you dialed cannot be reached from your calling area".
A reverse look up gives this. 180077scary
It's listed now as a landline, individual.

I was unable to find the original scary story, though I found a commercial:

goblyn I absolutely loved these as a kid! Thank you for taking the time to photograph them, this was really a flashback to my childhood! I don't think I ever owned any of the full sized ones, but I at the very least, owned all of the evil ghostlings (because they were so much cooler). I loved the fact that you could take the hologram part out of the robe and more or less have two figures for the price of one! I don't really know if I did much more with them than look at them and pose them as spookily as possible, but I do know that if I could find these today, I'd buy them for my kids in a heartbeat.

I'd love to see a post about Monster In My Pocket, which were even more cool!

Chentzilla Lucky may also be called Lucky because rabbit's foot is a lucky charm.
