MONSTERS IN THE TOY BOX



There seems to be a never-ending flood of monster toys these days. While not as abundant as during the Monster Craze of the 1960's, monster toys have permeated many areas of the market, including model kits, figures, props and other goodies designed to separate you from the money in your wallet. Either by design or by dumb luck (I favor the former), many of these items are sold as "collectible", and have only short-run production. This creates an artificial aftermarket demand which leads to a frenzy of buyers for the next item that rolls off the assembly line.

Mezco Universal Monsters Frankenstein Action Figure

Mary Shelley's hulking fiend returns in 9-inch action figure form! Frankenstein's monster brought to life by Mezco's award-winning design team. Boasts 10 points of articulation!


Presented in glorious, hulking 9-inch tall fashion, the devilish fiend otherwise known as Frankenstein's monster has never looked better than with this Universal Monsters Frankenstein 9-Inch Action Figure! Constructed by author Mary Shelley's infamous Dr. Frankenstein from corpses, and resurrected by curious machines powered by a bolt of lightning, he ruthlessly terrorized the countryside, causing chaos among the peasantry and elite alike. Now he is brought to life by Mezco's award-winning design team! This 9-inch scale Frankenstein features a real cloth coat and shirt. His finely detailed body boasts 10 points of articulation, and he's even covered with scars from his assembly! Ages 15 and up. Suggested retail price: $28.99.
