OK, Bag Monster is a moronic name, but Monster has become a catch-all phrase for "Hey, this will help you do something" This section will help you find the bags you're looking for (like you're really looking for them). Leaving everything blank will retrieve a list of all bags, however that may cause the page to load slowly.

Qantas

It's the Qantas 84-Q bag! Why do I call it that? The letter 'Q' appears on this bag 84 times with 3 kangaroo logos that from a distance make it look like you're the sidewalk superintendant at a construction site. Or perhaps the bag is actually one of those stereograms that simulate depth if you cross your eyes (note: must have 3 eyes to do this successfully with this particular bag).

This bag harkens back to a simpler time in the evolution of Qantas bags. Just a simple kangaroo in the corner of the bag. No cumbersome instructions and no complicated film offers, just minimalist artwork.

Bag sports the 1972 Olympics abstract human figurine complete with abstract trash can. The cool thing about this bag is that if you use it, you have to wait until the plane lands before they'll give you another one, when 'a replacement will be provided'.

The only Orange/Yellow Qantas Film bag. There's a whole lot of text on this bag, but I like the part that exhorts you to "Relive those wonderful memories" -- of your lousy airplane meal no doubt. Note that the guy on the windsurfer is wearing a Speedo.

For the first time in over 20 years, Qantas eschews the Photo Bag (since film is no longer ubiquitous?) in favor of plain simplicity (and unispired bag design). However, the bag proudly announces the vital message "4A10".

Qantas continues its uninspired line by moving the instructions to the bottom of the bag and bending the kangaroo's knees markedly.

Sadly, Qantas has gone to generic black-on-white bags, a far cry from their former multi-color film developing bags of yore.

Qantas BA98

Approximate Vintage: 1995
Received From: Nicodemus Tan
A photo mailer bag from the mid-90's. A very trusting bag, too. You are asked for your credit card number along with your expiration date and signature, and you are supposed to write it on the OUTSIDE of the bag. Not very secure, I wouldn't think.

This is the BA98 bag.

Qantas BC40

Approximate Vintage: 1997
Received From: Igor Gordon
National Photo rolls out its Blue Barf Bag. No airline is mentioned but supposedly, this bag has also been used on Ansett.

This is the BC40 bag.

Qantas BC41

Approximate Vintage: 1992
Received From: Kim Decker
Same as all the other blue Qantas film bags. This one's offer expires December 31, 1992.

This is the BC41 bag.

Qantas BG12

Received From: Mike Roselle
Almost identical to the blue Qantas film bag, except this bag says that all your photos are inspected. The other bag only says that your 35mm photos are inspected.

This is the BG12 bag.

Qantas BG85

Received From: Mike Roselle
Almost identical to the white Qantas film bag, except this bag says that your 35mm photos are inspected. The other bag says all your photos are inspected.
