No matter how many times Mary Shelley’s classic creature strides onto the silver screen, the definitive take for many will always be Universal’s 1931 Frankenstein.
You may prefer your Monster to be eloquent and tortured, like in the original book, Penny Dreadful, or Kenneth Branagh’s adaptation; you may prefer him comedic, as he was in the Abbot and Costello adventures; or you may like him best as a hero, as he was in The Monster Squad or I, Frankenstein.
But you can’t deny: Boris Karloff’s portrayal remains a gold standard, and Jack Pierce’s make-up design is rightly iconic.
And The Universal Monsters Frankenstein One:12 Scale Action Figure is an incredibly accurate recreation of this most legendary monster. Few figures of the Karloff creature have been as photorealistic – this Mezco creation comes with both a standard, stoic head and a snarling, angry head, both beautifully detailed and painted.
This super-articulated action figure features over 20 points of articulation and a display base with posing post and functioning shackles with a real metal chain.
Designed with collectors in mind, Frankenstein’s Monster comes packaged in a deluxe fifth-panel window box with translucent acetate slipcover for both maximum protection and ease of removal for display.
Also included are posing hands with attached forearms (L&R) and grasping hands with attached forearms (L&R).
Whether you’re a die-hard Frankenstein fan, an aficionado of classic horror, or just someone who really digs Karloff – this Universal Monsters Frankenstein is a great addition to any family. All he’s ever wanted, after all, is some human kindness and affection.
