  1. The only other thing is the donkey, pictured on my post above.
  2. I want to have a mechanism around the base of a tree that allows an empire/gf train to appear to be travelling around it. I've planned on installing a single shopping cart wheel on the underside of each blowmold and laying a track for them to follow. the blowmold would then be connected to an arm rotating around the base of the tree. I just need a rotating outlet/cord so it doesn't get tangled. Ideas?
  3. Here are some photos of some rare blow molds I found on a European sight. The flat backs are only lighted by LEDs poking through and are made by "Konstsmide". The snowman bad polar bear are made by Stargazer. They are larger than they appear in the photos.
  4. It is a Santa jack in the box, made of "plastix" (hard molded latex/rubber). The seller wants almost 400, and it would be impossible to ship. Said it was used in Marshall Fields in the 50's. The seller doesn't know for sure but is assuming it is mold craft or Heller. The face time looks like a Wiken Santa face but idk. It is 36" tall. Here is the link for the Santa. The seller is also selling all three mold craft "Santa's Brownies" heads only. Info would be appreciated. http://m.ebay.com/itm/112227794741?_mwBanner=1

  6. Those deer are much harder to find than thought out to be. The empire 1970 giant size deer and the 1986 giant size deer are easy to find, as are general foam large and giant size deer. Finding the empire version of those deer is hard, good luck. They're worth about $70 each in good condition judging by past eBay sales. Of course you could just go to Walmart and buy 9 of the general foam small ones, they appear identical. If you are a die hard collector like me, I won't put empire deer with a gen foam set or visa versa. Good luck.
  7. Its empire, great shape worth about $150 with the deer in that condition
  8. I believe I found it in an old closed eBay auction. Sorry if the photo belongs to anyone here but I couldn't find any other images if that specific lantern.
  9. Could you please post in another thread or pm me? Thanks.
  10. Thanks. I have that catalog in my files but it's only 15 pages. How many are there?
  11. Does anyone know who made the flat back Noel lantern in the first pic? I know the rest are GP. The second photo is from London England. The ornaments may be from a European company or made of fiberglass. Anyone have catalog images/other pics? Manufacturer info would be appreciated.
  12. Three blind mice was the three stooges theme! I'm not sure too many people would get it, but a lot of blow mold collectors are also history buffs, so thanks for posting it here.
  13. That was the Rudolph for the junior size deer team. I have Rudolph pics for all three deer teams. Shown in this pic is the regular deer from the junior and king size teams, and Rudy from the life size team. Enjoy. The other photo is of the complete life-size set. I have a photo of the king size Rudy I can post if interested
  14. General foam manufactured a few molds in different paint variations around 2014. They are usually sold in the boxes with the "Holiday Decor" logo. I'm not sure if these colours are still in production. The Santa train is black instead of red/green. The Traditional size Wisemen are dressed in blue and purple apposed to red, yellow and pink. The child Nativity wiseman with the train has a dark purple cloak instead of light purple/pink. The wiseman with the Teddy is in red instead of pink. The shepherds under shirt is green apposed to pink and Jesus's Manger is dark brown apposed to the same color of the straw.
  15. By original sale prices we would have Poloron Santa's selling for 15.99
