The Mighty Men And Monster Maker had a set of flat plastic pieces that had raised outlines and textures that were parts of different types of monsters and heros. There were a number of different heads, torsos and legs. There was one portion on each side of the pieces, and they could be used interchangeably. Once you had the ones you wanted, you put them into the plastic tray that holds them in place, put a piece of paper over it, and lower a frame that held the paper in places. You then used a black crayon and did a rubbing using the side of the crayon to cause the image to appear. Once that was done, you colored it in.

I fondly remember passing many hours with this thing creating scores of "heroes" and "villians" that I would make up stories about, kind of like my own comic book. I was always fascinated with monsters and fantasy stuff as a kid, and naturally drawn to the creative things. I ended up getting a degree in art!

i had one of these in the early 80's. my brother and i had a blast with it.and if you were creative enough, you'd learn to add on by hand extra details . we even would combine it with another similar maker with different plates that focused on space and machines. i know i still have it somewhere. i'd love for my own boys to play with it..i really wish they would bring this particular toy back in some kinda' re-issuie. there are way too many toys out there that require batteries and don't let you create and use your imagination like the toys i had as a kid. especially this one.

Soooo amazing! Being a father of a son of 3, I just wish I knew where it was! Hours of time spent, many sheets of paper, tons of fun! Great website! Keep up the great work!

I had this in the early 80's also. It had cool patterns you could pick to give different texture looks to the different parts. I'd like to find this on ebay.

My son played for hours with this toy. I am glad I saved it for him as he was pretty excited when I brought it back out 16+ years later.

Me and my best friend like this thing and use it a lot. My teacher's son had it and now, the class loves it! I hope they'll bring it back with new combinations.

My older brother (10 years older) had this. I think his was from the late 70s though. I ended up finding it on the top shelf in my closet along with Spirograph which was even cooler!
