Preorders, Special Orders & Layaway

Preorders are sometimes offered with highly anticipated items not yet available from the manufacturer or distributor. This is a popular option for those who wish to reserve the item right away and avoid a quick sellout. Payment is required at the time of your order. If you add a preorder to your regular order, your entire order will not ship until the preorder is available for shipping. For this reason, we recommend that preorders are made separately from regular orders to allow the regular order items to be shipped immediately (except for mailed payments by personal check which require a 10-day hold).

Layaway may be available by special request if more than two units of an item are in stock. Inquire if interested. A 20% non-refundable deposit is required to initiate layaway and hold your item. Payments toward the purchase are required monthly and a $5 layaway fee is added to each payment. Once your full payment has been received (including shipping charge and all appropriate layaway fees) your item will be mailed by USPS.  - Scary Monsters® - Castle of Frankenstein®

Submission Guidelines: Articles, Monster Memories, or Artwork are not guaranteed to be published, but the chances are good if the subject matter is family friendly but still scary and focuses on monster, sci-fi, and/or fantasy films from the 1910s-1980s. Familiarity with the current content of Scary Monsters is strongly recommended. Modern slasher and gore subject matter should be submitted elsewhere for consideration.

Submissions are voluntary and without compensation. However, the author receives a copy of the issue in which their article appears. They also get significant exposure of their work as our magazines are distributed internationally, including Barnes & Noble, Books-A-Million, and Chapters/Indigo (Canada) bookstores as well as in comic shops and retail stores in the UK, Australia, and other countries.

You must include with your submission your full name, email address, phone number, and U.S. Mail address. Articles must be prepared in a Microsoft Word document (or equivalent) using no more than 3,000 words. Email to We will acknowledge receipt of the submission but may not be able to review it and make comments for some time because of our heavy workload. If your article is tentatively approved for publication in an upcoming issue, it will be proofed and edited for accuracy and grammar and in keeping with our editorial style. If excessive revisions are needed, the article may not run.

Any photos or graphics intended to possibly accompany the article should be sent in jpg/jpeg or png format and attached to the submission email separate from the text document (do not insert images into the text). Photos must be from the public domain or with accurate credit provided. Please, no blurry or tiny images. Suggested captions are helpful.  

You may ask, “What is a Monster Memory?” This is an informal article (often relatively brief) in which you would recall a favorite monster movie, actor, or director, etc. that influenced you so much that you became a lifelong fan of the genre. Or, you could write about a family member or friend who introduced you to monster movies.

Artwork can be submitted by email (see image requirements above) or by U.S. Mail to the address listed above (must include an appropriately sized postage-paid envelope if it is to be returned). Please keep in mind that it will be printed in B&W.

Product Safety Notice is not a manufacturer. We do not conduct any tests on the merchandise we sell. The items we sell are NOT intended as toys for youngsters.

We assume no liability regarding product safety of any kind. Any questions or complaints should be directed to the individual manufacturers.

Item Conditions and Grading for Collectibles, Magazines, and Comics

Collectibles we offer for sale, unless otherwise noted in the item description, are new and factory sealed. Some of the action figures we offer are pre-owned (a better term than "used" for these purposes) but the figures, unless noted, have never been removed and displayed. To give collectors a general idea of the condition of the packaging or display box for each figure, we use the widely accepted rating system C1-C10. C10 is considered true mint. The packaging is glossy, with no visible defects, and is in the manufacturer shipping carton. C1 means the packaging or display box shows significant handling damage but contents are intact. Lower-graded items at a lower cost are perfect for those who wish to discard the packaging and display their figures. You will find most items fall in the C6-C9 range. Please keep in mind that we are not professional graders.

Magazines and comics are brand-new, uncirculated, and picked from the publisher or distributor shipping carton, unless otherwise noted in the individual item description. Most we would consider Near Mint. As is the case with general collectibles, we are not professional graders but do provide an accurate description of any printer defects or other information collectors would be interested in. We cannot guarantee Mint or perfect copies of the magazines we offer, particularly with those shipped to us from the UK, but we will ship the best available on hand. Newly released and stocked issues stand the best chance of being in excellent condition.
