OK so Im trying to figure out from memory what these figures were or what toyline....

#1 was literally a red sausage or hot dog with a painted on smiling vampire face with fangs and had a black fabric cape.... No Articulation, was just a plastic hot dog in a cape! Circa 84-89?

#2 was this green monster action figure who almost had the articulation of the classic karate kid figures or Thundercats figures but maybe a little bigger....I want to say he had cloth pants but these may have came from a different figure....maybe not Im not sure! Also might have had yellow or white highlights on the face and his eyes were black? circa 84-89?

and for the heck of it #3 were these cheap toys I remember getting from the supermarket...they would glow in the dark and were mainly composed of that clearish glow in the dark plastic with very little painted on details, I remember from what was painted on were a bright red and green. I remember one had these little wings and his head looked like an exposed brain or cracks running through it....Also remember a little gnome guy that had a red hat possibly? no articulation at all, these were solid monster toys. circa 86-91?

not many details to work with but if anyone MIGHT have an idea of what these are, please post! Thanks in advance.

Offhand, I'd say that sounds like a fast food toy- perhaps a McDonald's Happy Meal toy from a 1980s Halloween- you might like to try looking up 1980s commercials for McDonald's on Youtube to confirm.

I suppose these are just memories of toys you had as a kid and not toys you presently own? (Thus, no pictures possible?)
If you have an image to work with, you could try using tineye.com to do a reverse image search online and see if you can find more information that way.

You might also try perusing this blog for your toy searches (http://dinosaurdracula.com/ - and see the predecessor- http://www.x-entertainment.com/)
That blog has tons of toys and various other items from the 1980s and other time periods mentioned- you might find what you're looking for there. [Just as a warning- it does have some foul language at times, unfortunately. But it's also often pretty hilarious.]
