The Loch Nerf Monsters.

This thing was made by Parker Brothers and is incredibly rare and hard to find. I had a conversation with a rabid Nerf collector about this guy once and it was his opinion that this was only released as a small test market and didn't do well enough to see a major mass market release. I know for sure that it was in stores at Christmas in 1983 in the San Antonio, Texas area because that's where the one I own came from. The name of the one I own is Glintz . I have no clue what the others are named.
On a completely different note, Sometime late last night I passed one million page views on Google+!  I know this isn't really exciting to anybody but me. There are other people that have a LOT more views then I do, but I still feel like its an accomplishment.

  1. This is the first time I've ever seen this toy. While they bare no resemblance to the lochness monster, I don't think Parker Brothers would have fared any better If they had gone with the name "Baby Luci-nerfs" lol.

    1. Lol! Baby's first bath time Satan...probably wouldn't do well at all. The little blue sidekick ( that I haven't seen in 3 decades) looks like the loch Ness monster.

    1. Thanks! Yeah, very few people have. If you wanted one of these guys I think you might never find one.I would love to have the other two colors.

  4. So, Loch-Nerf as in Nerf guns? Weird, this doesn't look like it has anything to do with foam projectiles at all! Maybe they were intended as target practise?

    Also, one million, congrats - here's me celebrating 80,000 last week, ha ha!

    1. It really inst like the other stuff they had on the maker at the time.The patten information calls it a foam toy but nothing about it is foam. Thanks! 80.000 is still a lot!

  5. I've never seen anything quite like that monster before - I can't decide if it's cute or creepy (maybe that's why it never made it to the mass market?) but it's totally interesting to see.

    And congrats on the views!

    1. It does have a cute creepiness thing going on. Its a little like the baby Hellboy. There is almost no pictures of this toy line on the internet so I thought i would try to do a comprehensive set of picture for anybody who might be looking for them. Thanks!

  6. My brother and I each have a blue Loch Nerf Monster that we saved from when we were kids living in Salt Lake City, Utah, so they were sold there as well. I've been searching for an orange one for years, and would pay a significant amount of money for it. Do you have any leads? Would you be willing to part with the pink one you have?

    Pics of my blue one can be found here:

    1. Ha! hello, I have seen your thread , The catalog image Im using came from it! I have long searched for an orange one and I can tell the news on that front is not good at all,I was talking to somebody who said they had the orange one still boxed but wanted $800 for it and would never provide pictures and eventually stop responding to me all together.I have never considered but I might for the right price I suppose.

  7. BTW, the other Loch Nerf Monsters are named Dwiffle and Frunckle.

    Congrats on the 1 million views.
