Many don't know these even exist. Not sure when they were made, but probably 1 run only.
They were advertised in Better Homes & Gardens in 1967 and are unlicensed but absolutely are the Creature From The Black Lagoon. It is 5 3/4 tall and made of lead. Originally it came with a light bulb that you could submerge. What could go wrong, putting lead and electricity in the tank with your fish?
Probably one reason they are so rare is that they probably wiped out whatever aquariums they went into. The paint appears original and is mostly there.
No bulb or electrical cord. It's made of lead, so heavy for the size. I'll include the Better Homes and Gardens. If you are using app it will not work.
