  1. It's Wednesday and you know what that means: ToyFarce review! This week, we're having a look at the 2 latest Universal Monsters Ultimate action figures from NECA, the Bride of Frankenstein and the Creature from the Black Lagoon. 2 more great offering for that line by NECA! The Bride of Frankenstein, as portrayed by Elsa Lanchester in 1935, is a fantastic figure. She comes with 3 different heads, a soft goods gown, an extra pair of hands, and bandages. If you have the Frankenstein monster and the accessory set, it is a no-brainer that you also need that one. You can display full of bandages, like before they reveal her look in the movie, with bandages all over. The 2 unmasked head sculpts look very good. The packaging art is, as always, beautiful with that line, using old posters from the film, with lots of colors. The Creature from the Black Lagoon, as portrayed by Ben Chapman and Ricou Browning, was one that I was really looking forward to. I've loved the design of that creature since I was a kid, and I nearly broke my own 'rule' of getting the black and white versions of those figures to get the colored one, as it looks so good in green too. 'Gill-man' comes with 3 interchangeable head sculpts and 3 extra pairs of hands (4 pairs in total). I'm a bit disappointed that he didn't come with more accessories, but at the same time, can't say what I would have added (a harpoon gun? a net?). The figure has a ton of details an looks amazing.

  2. It's Wednesday, and you know what that means: ToyFarce review! This week, we're having a look at the first two Universal Monsters Accessory sets from NECA, for Frankenstein and The Mummy. Continuing the NECA month, I had those accessory sets on my pile of unopened toys for a while, and it was time to set them free. They come with a cardboard background and end up being pretty great little dioramas. The Universal Monsters Frankenstein Accessory set comes with Dr. Frankenstein laboratory table, a laboratory cardboard background, a plastic towel to add to it, a piece of white cloth, an alternate bandaged head for the Frankenstein's monster and a flaming torch to scare it (Frankenstein's Monster figure not included). The box art on those accessory sets looks gorgeous, as usual with NECA. I had heard that the table cannot be undone once assembled, and that is very true, the pieces snap together and you'd need to break it in pieces if you want to store it back in the box. It's a pretty great looking table, though! The table and the laboratory background make for a decent diorama, and the extra accessories add nicely to your Frankenstein's Monster figure. The Mummy Accessory set is pretty great too, as it includes the long awaited sarcophagus, an Egyptian themed background, and a chest (The Mummy figure not included). When I got the Mummy figure, I kinda wished it came with a sarcophagus, since it had been teased on the pictures... Well, that's how you sell people an extra accessory set! The sarcophagus looks really great, with tons of details in the paint apps. The chest can open in order to store the smaller Egyptian chest that came with the Mummy figure (which hid a scroll). The Dracula Accessory set is already out (and on its way!), along with Carfax Abbey version of the Dracula figure (black and white). I'm looking forward to check those out too! More news at 11:00... It's alive... ALIIIIVE!
  3. It's Wednesday and you know what that means: ToyFarce review! This week, we're having a look at the Casey Jones as The Phantom figure from the Universal Monsters x TMNT from NECA. Another fantastic figure from that line, which will continue for a few more, as we learned at the NECA booth at San Diego Comic Con. Casey Jones wears a mask, the Phantom of the Opera wears a mask... another mash up that makes total sense! As usual, the packaging has an awesome illustration by Daniel Horne. I've seen someone online that put all the packaging art together and framed it, and it looked VERY cool. Maybe a print with all the art from the boxes could be a good idea, NECA? (*wink wink*). Casey Jones as the Phantom comes with 2 extra heads (broken mask and skull), 3 extra pairs of hands along another set wearing hockey gloves, a soft goods cloak, and 2 hockey sticks. The soft goods cloak has wires and can be posed nicely. The face with the broken mask has some gnarly details, with an open mouth missing teeth. It's definitely going to be the display one! The red hockey glove arm is a fun touch, this figure has an awesome design. A perfect fusion of the 2 characters. I wonder if Casey Jones can play the organ... The normal mask sculpt also kinda looks like the mask of Mick Thompson from SlipKnot, which is a good thing too! (NECA SlipKnot figures: CONFIRMED? By god, I would get them all in a heartbeat.) The next 2 in that line were revealed at San Diego Comic Con, and they are Leonardo as the Creature from the Black Lagoon, Raphael as the Wolfman. I cannot wait for not only the figures, but also the box art! More news at 11:00... Goongala-hahahaha! MWAHAHAHAHAA!

  5. An unfortunate accident happened during the first day of the NECA Convention Exclusives 2023 Pre-Sale, as Nick, a long time collector, sprained his finger on his computer mouse while trying to beat the competition and be the fastest one to check out. ToyFarce investigated... "No pain, no gain, I guess" said Nick. "First, I logged in an hour before to make sure that I would be able to go faster through the checkout process, but NECA ended up changing their whole website right before the end of the countdown, so then, I went into panic mode! When the countdown reached zero, I refreshed, grabbed all the items in my cart, and rushed to check out. Then, I had to enter my email address and address, so I moved my handfrom the mouse to type on the keyboard, and after I entered all the info, and went back to the mouse: BAM! I hit my finger on the side of it, and the mouse flew from the table to the ground. I felt an intense pain on my finger, but then decided to use the touchpad of my laptop with my other hand to complete the checkout! There was nearly an issue with the tshirt size of the Keno set, as my size was already sold out, but I managed to change it in the nick of time." "After all was said and done, my finger kept hurting, so I put some ice on it for a while. It still hurts a bit today, but it should be fine. I'm happy with my haul. I just hope I don't get a scar!" Did you manage to get the items you wanted from the NECA Convention Exclusives 2023 Pre-Sale? More news at 11:00... There's still a chance today! *ToyFarce News is parody news for laughs and not meant to be taken seriously!
  6. It's Wednesday, and you know what that means: ToyFarce review! This week, we're having a look at the black and white version of the Universal Monsters Dracula, as well as his Accessory Set, both from NECA. And only one thing to say: Wow! This figure is amazing. The likeness, the different hands, the cape... it is a perfect figure. "It belongs in a museum" like a certain daredevil archeologist would say. The Accessory Set, on the other hand, is a bit weak, sadly... Dracula, as portrayed by Bela Lugosi in 1931, is a beautiful figure. He comes with 2 extra head sculpts, 5 extra hands, a cape, a top hat, a cane, a bat and a flight stand for the bat. The likeness on all head sculpts is spot on and that cape is really amazing. The fabric they used flows very nicely, and stays in position. It is double sided with a different color on the inside. It has a plastic collar to attach it to the figure. I would like all my caped figures to come with a similar cape going forward, please! Also, this figure is the black and white version, but if you have the colored version already, you can just switch the hands and head sculpt for a different outfit, the Carfax Abbey look, with top hat and cane. The Accessory Set, on the other hand, is a bit disappointing. The most important part is the coffin, obviously, but it also comes with 4 animals: an armadillo, an opossum, a spider and a cricket in a mini-coffin. It also comes with a cardboard background diorama, as the other ones did. The Frankenstein set had the huge table with multiple parts, and the Mummy set, even if it had only the sarcophagus, had a lot of paint and details on it. The coffin, being pretty simple, feels a bit cheap, especially when you buy it for the same price as the previous 2 sets. It's still nice to have a coffin for Dracula, though! More news at 11:00... "To die, to be really dead... that must be glorious."
  7. It's the last week of the NECA Haulathon and NECA decided to end it with a bang by giving us a first look at the next figure in the Universal Monsters line, the Invisible Man (Invisible version)! A regular version of the Invisible Man was already revealed a while ago, complete with bathrobe and bandages around his head, but NECA went one step further for this figure and used actual invisible paint. As we can see from the pictures, the figure has a decent amount of articulation, and the likeness of Dr Jack Griffin, portrayed by Claude Rains in the 1933 movie, is spot on. Another great release for this line that keeps growing. Also, as a special treat, NECA provided us with a close up of the Black and white version of the figure, which will be released later this year. Pre-orders should go live tomorrow (April 1st). More news at 11:00... "An invisible man can rule the world! Nobody will see him come, nobody will see him go." *ToyFarce News is parody news for laughs and not meant to be taken seriously!
  8. It's Wednesday, and you know what that means... ToyFarce review! This week, we're having a look at the Universal Monsters x TMNT action figure of Splinter, dressed as Van Helsing, from NECA. Continuing on the NECA backlog during the Haulathon month, this is the latest entry in the Universal Monsters and TMNT mashup line, which has been one of my favorite lines lately. Splinter does not disappoint either (even if most would have preferred something else than Van Helsing)! As usual with the figures from this line, it comes in a gorgeous art box with a beautiful painting on the front and picture of the figure on the back. Splinter/Van Helsing (Van Splinter?) comes with an extra head (same sculpt but without hat), 4 extra hands, a knife, 3 wooden stakes, a crossbow, 3 normal arrows for the crossbow, one arrow with garlic on it, one arrow with a hook on it and a stand. The knife and the wooden stakes can be stored on the figure on his belt, and the arrows fit in the quiver on his back. It's a pretty fun take on Splinter, which is basically the same figure as the movie Splinter with a leather jacket, glasses and a hat. The articulation is the same as the movie Splinter too, meaning not great, but at least the arms can move well, the tail is bendy and the head can move a bit. The legs have articulations on the knees, ankles and toes (or whatever the rat equivalent of those bones are called), but he might not be able to stand if moved too much. The accessories are fun, the crossbow is quite fragile (nearly broke it when extracting it from the plastic bubble), and it's nice to have a toy that can hold all his accessories (minus extra head and hands). More news at 11:00... So... Is Shredder going to be Dracula, then?
  9. It's Wednesday and you know what that means... ToyFarce review! This week, we're having a look at the Michelangelo as The Mummy figure from the Universal Monsters x Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle line by NECA. This figure was available early as part of the Target Fall Geekout event and will be released everywhere else later. Michelangelo is the third turtle from that line to get the Universal Monsters makeover, after Raphael and Leonardo. The very first impression, after being spoiled with HUGE figures for Raphael and Leonardo, is that this one is definitely on the smaller side. The box has a 'normal' size compared to the previous 2 (or same size as April's box). The box art is gorgeous, as usual, and might be my favorite of the 4 released figures. Michelangelo comes with an additional head sculpt (more on that later), 2 extra pairs of hands, a bendable cobra, 2 Ankh nunchucks and extra pieces of bandage to hang on him. The figure is definitely smaller than the other previously released turtles, but what he lacks in size, he has in details. The details on that figure are great, just like the 3 previous figures from that line. He has Egyptian hieroglyphs on his shell, and extra bandages to add on his arms. The second headsculpt is a fantastic addition, as it is an homage to the rotting Leonardo mask from the third movie, TMNT III from 1993, that popped up in some auction a few years ago, with the same dead eyes and teeth. The next ones in that line should be Splinter as Van Helsing, Donatello as the Invisible Man and Casey Jones as the Phantom of the Opera. More news at 11:00... Walk like an Egyptian turtle...
  10. It's Wednesday and you know what that means... ToyFarce review! This week, we're having a look at the Leonardo as The Hunchback figure from the Universal Monsters x Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle line by NECA. This figure was available early as part of the Target Fall Geekout event and will be released everywhere else later. When it was announced, I didn't have much expectations for that one, actually. Leonardo is a cool turtle, but the Hunchback? Why the Hunchback when there are perfectly fine other monsters, like Dracula, the Werewolf, the Creature from the Black Lagoon, etc... still available?! Well, it turns out that, once you have it in hand, it's a pretty amazing figure! The box for this one is HUGE! I should have taken a pic next to the other boxes. It's taller and way deeper than the other Universal Monsters x TMNT figures. That big shell of his does take a lot of space! Leonardo as The Hunchback comes with 3 extra pairs of hands, a skull, a brain in a jar, a pair of shovels, a bone, his katanas, and fire effects for the katanas (that's new!). The details on the figure are perfect in their creepiness (he has spiders crawling all over, etc) and the awesome feature of that one is that his shell opens to reveal... a lot of storage space! Remember, when we were kids, and we could store the extra weapons of our turtles inside their shells? It's the same concept, but gloomier. First, there is a huge lock on the side, and once open, you can see a couple of shelves (to display the skull and the brain jars, with pegs for them to be secure), you can put the katanas through the shell (ouch!), and it keeps the shovels and bones in place on the other side. That figure has great sculpt and details, and I ended up preferring it to the Raphael as Frankenstein, even though I had no expectation for it to be that good. April O'Neil as the Bride of Frankenstein and Michaelangelo as the Mummy were also part of the Target Fall Geekout event, and will be the next 2 reviews, as part of the October Spooky month theme. Boo! More news at 11:00... Cowabungaaaaaargh!
  11. It's Wednesday and you know what that means... ToyFarce reviews! This week, we're having a look at the first figure from the new NECA line of Universal Monsters x Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Raphael as the Frankenstein's monster. NECA has been killing it with their TMNT line, and with their Universal Monsters line, so there is no reason why they wouldn't keep doing that with those crossover figures. First things first, the art box is gorgeous, with old-fashioned, horror movie poster vibe, and bright colors. That is definitely something that will catch your eye on a shelf. If I had more space to display it, I'd be tempted to put the figure with the box behind it. It has the usual NECA box velcro at the front, to reveal the figure through a window. And first impression: that thing is HUGE! Frankenstein's Monster Raph comes with 2 extra pair of hands (closed fists and weapon gripping hands) and lightning bolt sais, which look awesome. But the best part of that figure is all the details on it. NECA did a fantastic job in adding details to the figure to make it look more... "Boris Karloff-y" ? The face has the classic Frankenstein's Monster shape, with a forehead that's more like a fivehead, the scars, the haircut and the bolts in the neck. The figure also has a chain around it, as if to hold the shell together. The shell has some amazing details, like a NY city sewer cover used as part of the shell, a handlebar to pass the chain in or a pressure gauge. Stellar job on the details and paint. Those figures have also had incredible stop-motion promotional videos, made by the super talented DGDX animation, which I invite you to check on NECA's social medias. The next ones will be Leonardo as the Hunchback, Michaelangelo as The Mummy, April O'Neil as The Bride of Frankenstein, and recently announces, Splinter as Van Hellsing. You can be sure that I will be getting those! More news at 11:00... Cowabungaaaaaargh!
  12. It's Wednesday and you know what that means: ToyFarce reviews! This week, we're having a look at 2 of the NECA figures that were available during the NECA Haul-a-Thon at Target, the black and white version of The Universal Monsters Wolfman, and Griff Tannen from Back to the Future 2. The NECA Haul-a-thon was a 4-weeks event that happened at Target and on Costumes.com, where a bunch of figures were available for a limited time there, before being available online everywhere. First off, the Wolfman, as portrayed by Lon Chaney - I had picked up the black and white Frankenstein monster, so now, I have to pick all the other ones in black and white as well, don't I? Isn't that the rule? Anyway... The figure comes with a beautiful art box (as is tradition with NECA), and has a ton of accessories: 2 extra headscuplts, including a Lon Chaney one, along with human feet and hands to turn your wolfman into a... man, his wolf's head cane and a wolf trap. It also comes with a tiny stand because since the feet are wolf-like, it wouldn't be able to stand. A cool figure, looking forward to have more of them to crowd the movie shelf. Griff Tannen, Biff Tannen's grandson in 2015 was a figure I was really looking forward to, since it's one that has the most crazy outfit from the 'future' (as imagined in the late 80's). Tom Wilson played both Biff and Griff in the movies (spoiler?), so the headsculpt, which was already great on the young Biff Tannen figure, is still pretty spot on. Griff comes with a second headsculpt (without helmet), his extendable baseball bat and his Pitbull hoverboard (or Pitboard). Just like the BTTF2 Marty, the board comes with a little transparent stand so that you can display it as if it were hovering (why haven't we figured out that technology by now?). A fun figure! There's still one Doc Brown from the first movie that was announced and should come out soon, and after that, maybe we'll start to get figures from BTTF3? Crossing fingers... NECA Haul-a-thon review part 2, with Demona and Bronx from the Gargoyles line, next week! More news at 11:00... What's wrong, McFly. Chicken?
  13. 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!
  14. 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
  15. 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.”
  16. 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.
  17. 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.
