Rare Vintage PENN PLAX 1970 CREATURE FROM BLACK LAGOON Aquarium Figure. I never used it for aquarium purposes-I mixed it in with my Aurora Monster model scenes that came out about the same time. The joint that connected the two pieces in the middle is broken-a pretty thin piece which allowed it to move up and down if ever placed in an aquarium-its very small and was all that held the top and bottom together-it is also included along with the air hose. All the tiny claws are there and not broken which is a rarity they usually are broken off -actually not a lot of these exist especially in this condition with the exception of the joint for aquarium movement.
I also included the original Penn Plax flyer/booklet with the creature on it. There is a closeup of this item in the booklet. One of the most sought after monster collectibles-few were made and very few survive in this condition-most would have been put in an aquarium and eventually discarded. Says 1970, Made in Hong Kong, Penn Plax, Jamaica, NY on the bottom. There was a remake done back in the 1990s but this one is the real 1970 issue. Please look at the photos and many thanks.
