From the back of the cabinet - ID Monster

Bought this lovely clear red monster from the fabulously brilliant, easily in my Top Ten Films, Forbidden Planet years back.
They did a real good job and translating what, in the film, was basically outline into a physical model.
Its not apparent in the shot above that he actually lights up to try and convey how he appears in the film.
Decided to do that while playing around with him, holding him up to the light:

So, made up a base from an old picture frame and,when he's on it, there's two super bright LED's shining up through holes where his feet go.
Its not that effective unless the room is VERY dark:
