The Remco Mini Monsters were the perfect marriage of the classic characters with the Star Wars format. I freaking love this and consider them the coolest toy Remco ever made. Click below to look at the different types of packaging from the series.(Many Thanks to Charlie Balicki for help with this gallery)

The First Series are sometimes referred to as "non glow" as the subsequent series were all glow in the dark, the card art is some of the best done for the Universal Monsters. It's striking and gloomy but somehow retains that late night movie monster feel. Note that by this time Bela Lugosi's image was used on the packaging (although it had been altered to include fangs, which look somewhat out of place)

The second run of characters now had a Glow in the Dark aspect added to each character resulting in figure variations and at first, an incidental change to packaging.

The third series saw a dramatic change in the card art as a glowing bubble was added to simulate the glow in the dark feature. Without a doubt these are my personal favourites in the line.
