I picked up a Gemmy monster at a flea market last weekend which is in some rough shape. Would anyone have or know where I can get an owners manual or some doccuments on how this monster works? Right now the monster is stuck in a half upright position. The monster somewhat resembles a Frankenstein but doesnt have the traditional Frankenstein looking head.
Any input would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks
Brian

Brian is this the lifesize guy with the brain showing (see photo on linked to thread below)? I don't have one but remember a few threads a while back on HF talking about repairs to one. As i recall a few people had one. If you could locate the thread I'd say if no one answers your post, try PMing the members who said they had one.

I did check Gemmy's website for lifesize characters and he's no longer on there.

I have zero experience with the Gemmy monster, but have a few Gemmy lifesize. Can you push down on his shoulders and release him, and gently pull him up and lock him in place at his upright position?

I have a lifesize Jason that works like that. He also has a small round button on his base that I push to bring him down.

Maybe carefully try doing both if you haven't already.

My Jason sometimes gets stuck and I have to gently press his shoulders to move him.

Got it! If you reach under his arm pits there are two openings. In each opening there is a hooked pin that sits in a slot. Push down on his shoulders while pulling the pin out of the slot and he pops up! Now, I can start working on proving out all his other functions. That being said, is there a source out there for repalcement parts?
Thanks to all for taking the time to respond to my question.
