I am trying to find the name of a set that I used to have that you mixed a package of powder with water and put it into a graduated cylinder. You could then cast fingers, toes, ears, noses, whatever. You first made the casting mix and then after you made the mold of your body part you mixed and poured the other mix to make the actual item and what you ended up with was a rubber-like replica of whatever you cast originally. Looking back I realize that this was just latex in powder form, but I would love to know what this toy was called and whether or not any form of it still exists. Thank you.

I had something along the same lines. It was a Mad Scientist kit. You would mix the green dough and rap it around a skeleton. Drop him in the tank and the green "skin" would bubble away. It was a huge mess and my parents threw it out! Ha Ha

My brother had one of these. I think it was the one like the poster before me described that had the monster with green "skin". It was pretty messy but pretty cool.

These were the best toys I ever had--better than my barbies and dolls. One was a kit where you could make monsters and dissolve them in a vat; another was a see-through alien--u could assemble his innards and dump glow-in-the dark stuff which was his pretend blood; the other one was an ice monster--weird kind of see through slime that you stuck in a mold.

My brother and i had this. There was a clear gel in the set that we stuck to the ceiling, and to this day my parents have yet to see the stuff still stuck there.

To person who originally started this thread- I am trying to figure out what it was called too. My older Brother had this when I was little and I remember him making casts of my fingers. Did you ever figure out what it was called?

Loved these toys. You don't see cool "dark" toys anymore like back the 80's.

Lol loved the Mad Scientist set, good 'ol 80's toys. My best friend and I set up some tricky tricks around his grandpas room, and we accidentally got Living Ice all over the back of his shirt and his hair and then his stepdad got very mad at us and we got in trouble I loved Mad Scientist set.

I had a set similar to this, I wish I knew what it was called. I swear it was Dr. Goo or something. i remember there being a balloon type head that you pumped up and you put green slime on. It got hard or something then you deflated it...I don't know but I really want another one. Me and my dad played with it all the time. I was a tomboy...I also had this mad scientist kit but man I wish someone could remember what I am talking about. I have put this on many sights and still no response...HELP

IT was the Mad Scientist monster lab set. there was a large kit and smaller kits. The large kit you cast around a plastic skeletons. with "monster flesh compound" or living ice compound. The "living ice" was a Gel like flesh you could see through. and the monster flesh was a rubber slime flesh. There was also terminator 2 version you made terminators put flesh on the terminator skeleton. It was part of them movie toys in 1991 when the movie came out. I still have both these sets and kept the compound frozen so I still think it is good, it has always been in my freezers since I bought them as a kid.

Krazy Clone Laboratory by Kenner is the one the original person is talking about. Can't find much info on it though.
