Vlog: Stretch Screamers “Oozers” Figure.

I reserve the right to cover Stretch Screamers again sometime. I love the things, and a ten minute video of me trying to open boxes just doesn’t go far enough to show how much.

If you don’t remember them, Stretch Screamers was a line of fantastic, stretchy monsters.  BIG ones. As the line grew more popular (or less popular, depending on your point of view), ToyQuest started making really, really weird spins on the originals, with all sorts of gruesome add-ons. Chiefly, there were Oozers, which were capable of spewing slime out of various orifices.

I much prefer the original versions, in part because they were elegantly simple, but mostly because one of them looked exactly like “Ghostface” from Scream.  Sadly, I have to get by on what’s on the shelves behind me, so Gunk the Oozer got the nod for tonight’s vid.

I included the commercial within the vlog, but it rendered all stupidly shaky. Perhaps God was punishing me for stealing someone’s YouTube video without providing due credit. Let’s pretend it was an artistic choice.

    Man I love your blog, but being in front of a camera is not your strong suit. It’s not a looks thing, you are just really boring on camera. Not sure if this was on purpose, but if it was the joke was way to long. Still love your page though

    Gunk is my favorite monster toy in my entire collection, he’s just perfect. I just wish I could find Slobber or Sludge :C
