Monster View-Masters


I won this on eBay last week. It's a Wolf Man View-Master set from 1978. It's still shrinkwrapped with an unpunched card. Now, here's the dilema. Should I open it? I have the Frankenstein and Dracula View-Master sets and they are open. I've never seen the Wolf Man reels. What should I do?

What are you waiting for? Open it as fast as you can!!! Are you going to let a pesky layer of shrinkwrap keep you from experiencing The Wolfman in 3-D?

OPEN IT! These sets you have are beautifully made. They don't make 'em like this anymore! Do it!!! And bask in the glory of vintage view master!!!

Open it already! Enjoy that viewmaster goodness!

I'd have to chime in as being part of the "open it!" crowd... I mean, if I won a Give-A-Show set that was shrinkwrapped, I'd open that puppy up (how else could I scan it for the Give-A-Show blog?), so how could I suggest anything different for you?

I'd have to agree with open it. Unless yu think you have a chance at another set which so I've found is going to be tough. I'd say open it.

Thats a really unusual package shrinkwrapped like that. I would say you should keep it wrapped. For more about View-Master and 3-D items, visit my Web site at www.3-Dreview.com.

If you must have a sealed copy... I just saw one offered for sale on eBay at http://cgi.ebay.com/Vintage-GAF-Viewmaster-3D-Classic-Tales-Wolfman-1978-EX_W0QQitemZ160272201709QQihZ006QQcategoryZ19196QQssPageNameZWDVWQQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem

At least you'd have one sealed and one opened, right? Price seems pretty reasonable, too.
