  1. It's Wednesday and you know what that means... ToyFarce review! This week, we're having a look at the Frankenstein's Monster from the NECA Universal Monsters line, the black and white version! I've always loved those old classic movies, so when NECA announced they were going to dive into that line, I was ecstatic. Then, they announced they would do black and white AND colored versions of them, and I was torn! Shoud I get them in black and white, or should i get the colored versions... the movies were in black and white, so it would make sense to get those... but the colored ones look great too... OH, THE DILEMMA! (First world problems, am i right?). I decided to go with the black and white ones, and so far they have announced only the Mummy in black and white... There's also an accessory pack for it, but that is only colored... Oh well. The Frankenstein monster, as portrayed by Boris Karloff with the iconic make-up and bolts in his neck, is a fantastic looking figure. He comes with 2 extra heads, 4 extra hands, a chain and a couple of flowers. Let's switch to black and white photos! Articulation-wise, it's the usual NECA offering. The big jacket is rubbery and does hinder a bit of movement, but then again, that is one character that is supposed to be stiff. Don't expect a lot of Spider-man poses with this one (Oh, that would have been super funny actually...) So far, the Werewolf (colored) and the Mummy (both colored AND black and white) are the only other 2 officially announced, and Dracula was teased. An accessory pack for the Mummy, complete with Sarcophagus and chest is also available for pre-order. Now, if someone could just tease the Phantom of the Opera and the Creature from the Black Lagoon... More news at 11:00... It's alive... ALIIIVE!
  2. For the 90th anniversary of the extraordinary silver-screen classic, NECA presents The Mummy action figure in authentic black-and-white! In this Universal Monsters classic of horror, Boris Karloff shines as the ancient Mummy in a tale of love transcending death. The sculpt captures the intricate special effects makeup that required eight hours to apply and two hours to remove. Standing in 7” scale, the figure comes in premium packaging with interchangeable heads, interchangeable hands, and Egyptian chest that opens. Estimated Shipping: June 2022
  3. While NECA has been teasing these figures for a few months now, and the Frankenstein figure is even available for pre-order now at places like our sponsor BigBadToyStore.com, today they released an official press release for their Universal Monsters line of figures. U.S.-based National Entertainment Collectibles Association (NECA) has announced plans for its full line of Universal Monsters action figures. Working closely with Universal Brand Development, LUGOSI LLC, and Chaney Entertainment, the figures will capture the horror world’s most iconic figures in NECA’s long-running Ultimate format. The first figure (arriving in July) will be Frankenstein’s Monster from Frankenstein (1931), which celebrates its 90th anniversary this year. The sculpt captures Boris Karloff’s poignant portrayal of the misunderstood monster in authentic black-and-white. A color version of the figure will follow. Subsequent figures set for 2021 will include Lon Chaney Jr. as the Wolf Man from The Wolf Man (1941), Boris Karloff as the titular figure in The Mummy (1932), and Bela Lugosi as the legendary Count in Dracula (1931). “We are proud to be working with NECA to include Bela Lugosi as Dracula as an Ultimate figure,” said Lynne Lugosi Sparks, CEO of LUGOSI LLC. “NECA’s attention to detail is amazing and we are happy to celebrate the 90th anniversary of Bela Lugosi’s iconic screen performance as Dracula with this figure.” NECA’s Ultimate format is a favorite among collectors for its complete portrayal of a character with a wide array of alternate heads, hands, and accessories so that many iconic moments from the movie can be recreated. The 5th-panel packaging also allows collectors to remove and replace without damaging the packaging. “As a lifelong fan of Universal Monsters, this is a dream come true,” said Randy Falk, NECA VP & senior director of product development. “I’ve been collecting Universal Monsters toys since I was a kid. This line aims to create something hyper-realistic and ultra-detailed for people like me who grew up watching these amazing movies and have always longed for definitive versions.”
  4. Next up for my "Monsters of the Universe" line is the Prince of Darkness, Dracula! Had a lot of fun putting this one together. It uses a heavily modified Funko Mumm-Ra head, MOTU Origins Prince Adam torso and legs, Keldor boots, and MOTU WWE Ricky Steamboat arms, with hands from a WWE Undertaker Vampire figure. But, the finishing touch is the custom double sided cape from the, "Capemaster" Michael Marquez. Great work as always.
  5. Mondo makes collectible creature history with the (possibly?) first-ever Creature from the Black Lagoon 1/6 scale figure! Meticulously crafted with 2 years in the making, this swamp-rompin' figure has 16 points of articulation, stands 12 inches tall, comes with interchangeable swimming hands and feet, 2 different switch-out heads, and a bonus fossil hand. You can pre-order this figure from our sponsor BigBadToyStore.com.
