TVTA is pleased to add its second catalogue to the Mebetoys category for die cast cars. This latest catalogue is from 1971 and was printed for the Italian market. The catalogue has some very cool stylised images of the models showing partial views of the car, as well as colour photographs of the range available at the time. The catalogue also includes an image for the Yogi Bear and Boo Boo car.
Thanks for looking! You can see our other Mebetoys catalogue here
As seen in adverts from the French movie magazine L’Ecran Fantastique, featuring a couple of well-known horror movies as well as some a little more obscure. Our first image is from the excellent A Nightmare on Elm Street franchise – A Nightmare on Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors, with poster design by French artist Laurent Melki, who also designed French posters for A Nightmare on Elm Street 4; Blood Feast; 2000 Maniacs; The Last House on the Left; Night of the Living Dead; Day of the Dead; Videodrome and Creepshow among many others.
Next up is an advert showing the poster for House designed by artist and writer Bill Morrison, who later worked on The Simpsons and created The Beatles – The Yellow Submarine Graphic Novel. You can see his signature on the side of the doorbell, but thanks to Cameraviscera I was able to get additional info.
Next is an advert featuring the poster for The Supernaturals, a zombie film starring actress Nichelle Nichols, famous for her role as Lieutenant Nyota Uhura in the Star Trek franchise. I can’t find any information on the name of the artist for this poster.
Next up is an advert for the French poster for the cult comedy horror shocker Street Trash. Artist unknown.
Next is an advert for the poster of the film Blood Sisters. Artist unknown.
Finally, we present an advert for I. Media video cassettes, featuring some popular titles available at the time to purchase via mail order.
TVTA is pleased to present a selection of Japanese horror film posters as featured in the pages of L’Ecran Fantastique from 1986.
