Bgcolor='#FFFFFF' valign='top'>. Universal Monsters Creature From The Black Lagoon 1971 Penn Plax Aquarium Origin. Note: We hold exclusive rights to our pictures! ALL ORIGINAL aquarium ornment from 1971! Note: most of his "fingernails" are gone (as well as a tiny "fin" off his left hand) - they're very fragile and we've seen them missing fingernails from never-removed-from-box ones. Also, originally, he was meant to have a air hose hook up - and he would bend and bob at the waist as the air flowed through him in the water. The "rubber"piece that allowed him to bend just doesn't last 50 years - and they often break at the waist. This one has been fixed to stay in position.
All this sounds like a lot but is meant just to be thorough. It's still a great piece that's very tough to find! We strive to provide an accurate description of all items. Look at the large pictures provided. Also, please be aware that close up pictures might emphasize dust and minor imperfections that you won't see with the naked eye. Most of our items are from 30 to 50 years old and will have some degree of stress cracks, crazing, etc. We do not highlight'typical wear' unless we feel it is out of the norm. Additionally, wires get brittle, rubber dry rots, strings get frail.
Battery operated items stop working. We will always tell you the operability of items in our possession - but we cannot, in any way, offer any guarantees of their continued operability.
FUN FACTS, HISTORY, ATTRIBUTES (ie size, year of production, color, scarcity, etc). WHAT FOLLOWS HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH ANYTHING SPECIFIC in this listing. Universal Monsters Creature From The Black Lagoon 1971 Penn Plax Aquarium. Listing is for Universal Monsters Creature From The Black Lagoon 1971 Penn Plax Aquarium. In 1971, Penn Plax offered one of the coolest Creature From The Black Lagoon toys made. The fish tank aquarium aerating ornament they dubbed simply "Monster" - clearly skirting bothering to pay any licensing rights. Penn-Plax took the Aurora Creature From The Black Lagoon model and pantographed it down in size to create their piece. The Penn-Plax Creature stands on a weighted rock and has a hinged middle area with a clear tube connection that connects to an aquarium pump. When connected, the Creature moves and bows under water as air bubbles fill his upper torso and are released. Because of the licensing issue, Penn-Plax discontinued making it after a short time and scrapped the molds.
