The One:12 Collective - Universal Monster’s Frankenstein
Perhaps the most iconic movie monster of all time, Frankenstein first terrified audiences in 1931. Portrayed by legendary actor Boris Karloff as a terrifying yet misunderstood and tormented creature, Universal’s Frankenstein monster has gripped moviegoer’s imaginations ever since.
Cobbled together from corpses stolen from graves and the scaffold; reanimated by lightning, Frankenstein terrorized a small village while seeking vengeance on his creator.
Meticulously developed to capture the terrifying look of the iconic creature and outfitted on a One:12 Collective body, the figure has incredible details. The final product captures the look and spirit of the character as he appeared in the legendary film.
The One:12 Collective Frankenstein features:
- Accurate real fabric clothing
-Hyper-realistic portraits
- Highly articulated body
-Character specific sutured forearms
-Film accurate asphalt spreader boots
 
Included with this figure:
-Standard head
-Angry head
-Posing hands with attached forearms (L&R)
-Grasping hands with attached forearms (L&R)
-Functioning shackles with real metal chain
-Display base with posing post
Packaged in a deluxe, fifth panel window box. Designed for collector convenience, the packaging allows for both maximum protection as well as ease of removal for display.
Frankenstein joins the Collective in September / October and is available for pre-order at

Just saw this some where else. Looks amazing. $70 plus shipping seems ok. Especially since it is a new concept. Real clothing and amazing detail on such a small scale.

I feel the same as you about the color version and have asked mezcotoyguy about when/if this color version is coming out.......just hope mezcotoyguy is someone from mezco and not a just a forum member here lol (and sorry for contacting you if you are a member)

I asked Mezco about the color version on Facebook.  This was the conversation:

Me:  Will there be a color version of Frankenstein available later?

Mezco:  There will indeed, but the details are still being worked out

Good enough for me.  Wait, I shall.

Post by: horrorhunter on April 06, 2016, 03:25:05 PM
I'll consider buying one if they make a color version (I like Silver Screen movies, but figures.. not so much). I would also like to read some reviews from purchasers and see several in-hand pics before I'm sold on it.

Post by: the_last_gunslinger on April 06, 2016, 03:43:11 PM
I just got a notification of this item from BBTS. I like the detail and I think I actually would prefer it in black and white. However, I'm not sure I'm a big enough Frankenstein fan to warrant the 70 dollars, at least not yet. There are too many other things on my to get list first.

Mexico:  There will indeed, but the details are still being worked out 😉

Good enough for me.  Wait, I shall.

Good to know about the color version, I'll hold off as well for now.

For this range in figures there's normally a PX edition that is in color (different from the regular release), and sometimes Mezco do a direct edition that again can be a different color (like their Dark Knight direct edition that was in dark blue). I have several of these figures that have been released and must say that they're always better in hand. Also there are often differences between the initial pictures that advertise the latest character and the ones you receive, with the ones being sent out always looking better.

I have complete faith that this Frankenstein is going to look pretty amazing in hand but will wait out for the color release as it works better for me (as long as it's not bright green!).

Sseems to be some hesitation in regards to this figure. Some want a color version and some want to see it in person. All reasonable requests. I buy what I like and I do like this figure. This figure does have some extra appeal being it is a new concept design with the clothing and detail. Even though liking the design of a figure is the main selling point I subscribe to. I have to say that I have become really on board the limited runs of figure scenario rather than the endless numbers mass produced scenario. ;D

 I think this looks absolutely incredible! I'm glad they're doing the black & white version for sure. I have a problem with the green used on most Frankenstein figures. The color pix of this piece that were first posted were too "St. Patrick's Day-looking" for me. This looks more authentic (just like the film). There are a ZILLION Karloff Frankenstein action figures out there, but they all pale in comparison.

I don't think the hairline is to far off these images (http://www.deathbymovies.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/10/Frankenstein-1931mkv_snapshot_003114_20120502_091210.jpg) (http://www.wearysloth.com/Gallery/ActorsK/9089-6755.gif)

Hair isn't stationary and can move from scene to scene/action to action or of course be affected by outside sources (i.e., wind, water)

There is supposed to be some spacing on the hairline. This figure does not do that. It's pretty obvious if you compare them side by side. Still a very nice figure though.

Quite an extraordinary sculpt for such a little figure.  A bit overpriced for a 1/12 figure, but the craftsmanship makes up for it.  I will certainly buy it because I appreciate Mezco's efforts of putting out high quality Universal monsters out in the mass market.  Hopefully, sales will be strong enough on this piece for Mezco to continue with other characters in the line.

Amazing figure but I will wait for the color version as well. It does make sense to release the B&W first. Usually when they come out simultaneously the color sells out and the B&W's sit around for a while. Someone on eBay is also taking pre-orders for the B&W version with BIN $89.99 and make offer. As for the hair they should just give him real hair and a little comb accessory so you can do it up any way you like.  ;)

I don't know how they'd do Creature, honestly.  If they did him in some kind of rubbery material, with covered joints, I'd have to pass.  That stuff breaks down pretty quickly.  Same reason I passed on the Hellboy Hot Toy figure. 

If they do him with proper joints, though, I'd be thrilled to get him.

After Universal cancelled the lunchbox and Mrs. Bates roto plush....I fear I am done with their licensed product.... no matter how stellar it is aesthetically. Those two blows have pushed me over the edge. Then there's the fact they offer absolutely no Psycho merchandise to speak of. So--Drop Dead Universal.  >:( >:( >:( >:( >:( >:( >:( >:(

You cannot swing a dead troglodyte without hitting Wizard of Oz, Mickey Mouse, or even I love Lucy items....but nothing for Universal's Monsters can seem to make it past prototype without some suit saying: "It looks too good.

If their Frankenstein is any indication,  a Creature would be stellar. You, Mike Scott,  would be compelled to own one. Just think of how much money you've dropped on those Japanese  Creature color variants.  Those things barely resemble  the  Creature.  YOU MUST BUY MEZCO. CREATURE.

I got burned out on variants with all of the variant comic book covers during the comic book glut of the '90s. I still occasionally buy one or two variants of the same thing, but I refuse to line the pockets of these companies who try to sucker OCD completests into buying several copies of essentially the same item. Just think of all the cool different items you could have bought with that money, like vintage stuff.

That said, I don't consider DD figures of the same character from different films variants. The card art will be different on each one, hopefully art from the original movie posters, and it would give DD a chance to make the characters somewhat different from each other by offering different paint details and facial expressions, different clothing where applicable, and different accessories to match the character's role in that specific film. I part ways with the opinions of some regarding this but there is certainly nothing wrong with going one's own way. Been doing that all my life, and it's the only way I'm at peace with myself.

I'm still holding out for a colour version of this figure to buy as I do really like the look of it but feel the colour one would suit my collection a bit more. I am wondering though when (if?!), this will be made available? I half expected it to turn up as some comic con variant this year but looking at what Mezco have put up for their  con exclusives it thankfully doesn't look to be that way. Hopefully it'll be easy enough to get hold of when it does go up for sale and not some strange 24 hour sale type deal (I do doubt that though).

I messaged them about it a while ago.  They said they fully intend to release the color version (though they did NOT say if it was going to be a general/non-convention exclusive release).  They just had some things they still needed to iron out.  He'll be out when he's ready, and I don't mind waiting because I want to see him done right, and do well, so they make more.

"This PREVIEWS exclusive version is in full color, recreating the make-up scheme of Karloff as accurately as possible."  By the looks of the color picture, Mezco is way off base. When is anyone going to accurately do a bluish-gray Monster for once?

It does look pretty green to me looking at the vid clip but I've also ordered a B&W version just in case (thanks guys for making me doubt the color version  :laugh:).

The one thing I thought about with getting one in color is that if they end up making more of these from the Universal range I would definitely want them in color as a B&W Creature or Wolfman probably wouldn't work for me and it would be nice to keep the group of them in the same color range.

I completely agree,  Ian. The video was from "Son of  Frankenstein "  eight  years later. I think the make up changed from the one described in the 1931 film. Either way, the pictures of the sold out black and white version look a lot better than the color ones. I do the exact same thing.  I buy the entire collection in color, and add the best looking black and white ones to the set.

IF I buy these (IF being the operative word) they will all have to match,lol. My primary worry here is that we won't get a Dracula at all...or that we will get one that looks like DST's.  I have a feeling that if they make a Wolfman they will nail it, just like they have with Frankie. So, at least thats one worry put to bed.

I cannot help but think that Frankenstein was always green. If I am wrong, honestly....who cares,lol? But Pierce did the make up for all of them. His ocd was bigger than anyone here. I cannot believe he would change hues from feature to feature without there being a distinct reason for it. With the notable exception of flame torched skin in bride. But there's a reason there, as I mentioned.

The primary reason for the Wolfman's changes over the years from film to film  was there was nothing distinctive about him from film to film except his nose and mouth. All that burned yak hair from feature to feature (from what I hear) was fresh. No pre-made head wigs just laying about the dressing room like they had in the 60's 70's flicks.

Im gonna go with Frankie was green. One things for sure; He wasnt monochromatic. Only the film was. Thats why I always go color. 8) ;)

You may be right, Anton. That still doesn't change the fact that the black and white one looks much better in the pictures. If the actual color figure looks like the pictures, I would be very disappointed to be stuck with that version.  I wouldn't worry about Dracula,  this line seems dedicated to getting it right.

I think that "color" Frankie is just a pee poor quickie photoshopped thing. Fingers crossed for the "real deal". What I am wondering is are the grimacing face and extra arms black and white...making the figure the best of both worlds?

I would imagine that it's all going to be in color but it would be amazing if it was B&W and also if the color gets released before the B&W version I can always cancel my B&W order.

Be careful, Ian, the black and white version is sold out on the Mezco website. Nothing is a sure thing yet. A combo of color with black and white parts would be stellar.  Executive Replicas did that with their Night of the Living Dead 12" zombie figure. They included 2 color heads (different expressions) and 2 black and white heads (plus an extra pair of black and white hands). Really great idea  ( and figure).

I managed to order one from earth Entertainment today and it's free shipping so I'm covered with that one. it would be good though if Meco Toy Guy could let us know about the color version coming with black and white extra head and hands as I could then cancel my B&W version (although I do prefer the non grimace face so may well keep hold of both). I do think if this color one does come with he B&W extra that it may well be worth the extra dollars than the B&W one.

Is that it on the Mezco site for sales of this figure?  Or will they have more available for sale when it is released?
What other sites have this for pre-order, that you like, and are trusted sellers?

Hope they make Karloff from Bride, & Son  and I would love to see the Strange Monster!
Lugosi, and Chaney Jr as the Monster too-if they continue to make these as film accurate as possible!
Elsa as Bride, Chaney Phantom, Lugosi Dracula (yea, now I'm dreaming!), Chaney Jr Mummy...

They still have the B&W version at Entertainment Earth and you might also still be able to get it at Big Bad Toys. There's still time to pick one up if you're after one although that will be it from Mezco directly as they don't seem to ever restock once an item is sold out.

I agree. Also, why have we not seen any packaging pics? I would only be interested in the black and white version. I was on the fence with this figure. Actually thought about passing on it. However, I thought maybe it's best to not take a chance of changing my mind and having to pay a lot more, so I ordered it.

I agree BTW. 80 bucks for a 6" figure is excessive IMO. Not only is it very small, it doesn't match the scale of any of my other figures. I'm not worried about paying more on the aftermarket because I think the initial price is too much. $50 at this scale would be about my limit, even for something which seems to look this nice (we still haven't seen pics of the packaging  ???). Pass.

I think it's an exciting new line. The size is part of the appeal. There are so many possibilities with this scale. This line is known for coming up with incredible diorama pieces. Imagine a lab set with loads of equipment? I firmly believe that the quality justifies the price (the silver screen one is already sold out, so I guess others agree). Hey, it's a better investment than re-buying every re-release of every movie on DVD or Blu-ray .

Judging by these pictures I think he looks pretty go even though I think there's still a fair amount of light bouncing off of that figure from the flash (or possibly the lighting in the cabinet). Feeling more confidant about this colour version but it would be good if PX Previews could take some nice pictures of it (as mentioned earlier here they are trying to get $80 out of people so they really should do a little work trying to sell it)!

I'm still wondering if the extra hands and head are in colour or B&W but think it's probably going to be in colour.

They can actually save space since they have a small footprint. Can't beat the price and they look very professional. Just make sure you have someone around when you assemble. It requires 2 people.

No, they aren't but you could make them dust proof with some adhesive backed foam weather stripping around the door seams.

Well, I couldn't make up my mind, so I ended up ordering the color one as well. I hope these look as good in person.

They look BETTER.  I have every figure released so far...four different Dark Knight Returns Batmans,  three Judge Dredds, two Mr. Spocks and Mr. Sulu.

They are INSANELY well made and just beautiful to behold in person. I still can't believe they're only 6" figures when I look at them. They have better sculpts. paint, and tailoring than Sideshow's early 12" figures. They are that good.

These things are a bargain at $69.99 (Ikea). Just bought another one for mask display which they are great for. I've seen pics of people using them for figures too. They can actually save space since they have a small footprint. Can't beat the price and they look very professional. Just make sure you have someone around when you assemble. It requires 2 people.

As well as Anton's questions that would be good to hear the answer to can you tell us if the latest color Frankenstein picture (the one earlier in this thread with the white background), is the PX previews one or maybe a Mezco direct version?

Really do love this series and Mezco have certainly been busy with them judging by all the SDCC pictures I've seen today of the new ones to come.

Just viewed the color and B&W versions of The Monster at Mezco's Comic Con booth.  It truly is a thing of beauty with amazing detail for 6-inch figure.  However, the color version is still a little too green for my liking;  the B&W version is the one I decided on.  Just a personal preference.  Apparently there is a strong chance the B&W version will be sold at a later date as a diorama, as shown.  It looks great! http://s345.photobucket.com/user/Joe_Baeza/media/Mobile%20Uploads/image_zpsplsmr4q9.jpeg.html?sort=3&o=0 (http://s345.photobucket.com/user/Joe_Baeza/media/Mobile%20Uploads/image_zpsplsmr4q9.jpeg.html?sort=3&o=0)

I think the description that Mezco sent out makes this pretty clear:

http://www.mezcotoyz.com/one-12-collective-universal-monsters-frankenstein (http://www.mezcotoyz.com/one-12-collective-universal-monsters-frankenstein)

Perhaps the most iconic movie monster of all time, Frankenstein first terrified audiences in 1931. Portrayed by legendary actor Boris Karloff as a terrifying yet misunderstood and tormented creature, Universal's Frankenstein monster has gripped moviegoer's imaginations ever since.

Cobbled together from corpses stolen from graves and the scaffold — reanimated by lightning — Frankenstein terrorized a small village while seeking vengeance on his creator.

Meticulously developed to capture the terrifying look of the iconic creature and outfitted on a One:12 Collective body, the figure's detailing is incredible; the final product captures the look and spirit of the character as he appeared in the legendary film.
The One:12 Collective Frankenstein features:

    Accurate real fabric clothing
    Hyper-realistic portraits
    Super articulated body
    Character specific sutured forearms
    Film-accurate asphalt spreader boots

What's in the box:

    Standard portrait
    Angry portrait
    Posing hands with attached forearms (L&R)
    Grasping hands with attached forearms (L&R)
    Functioning shackles with real metal chain
    Display base with posing post

Each figure is packaged in a deluxe, fifth panel window box with translucent acetate slipcover. Designed for collector convenience, the packaging allows for both maximum protection as well as ease of removal for display

I think the description that Mezco sent out makes this pretty clear:

Mord's question was about the color version of this figure and not the black and white one. This is because in the pictures of the color one Frankenstein is shown with the different head and arms in black and white and not color. It's hard to know for sure if the color one will come with all color parts (including the different head sculpt and differently posed hands), or if these extra parts will indeed be black and white like the picture shows.

See this pre-order for the "color" exclusive??? One of the portraits and sets of arms is in balck and white. If this is the case, you get the best of both worlds. If it isn't....then one might wish to get both figures. So my question is this: Is the exclusive mix and match (as the photo implies) or is it all color and the solicitation is just a lazy one.

I agree with this. I'm wondering if the diorama is simply something Mezco used to show off the B&W figure. In the picture it only mentions the figure on the little sign. You'd think if they were offering the whole shebang it would mention that.

I think they should have done this as a 1/6 scale figure or in addition to the 1:12, do a 1/6 scale figure. I realize that part of the appeal is the incredible amount of detail on such a small scale. However, imagine the detail they could achieve with a 12 inch figure in Black and white. Even if the sculpt was the same, just larger, it would still be magnificent.

GG, I was told by the Mezco representative (who sounded knowledgeable about what he was talking about) at Comic-Con that there was a "good chance" the diorama would be sold WITH the figure next year.  My guess is that the B&W version sold out quicker than expected, so this would be a good reason to put more into production.  Maybe the Mezco guy on this board can shed more light on this, and whether other Universal Monsters are being looked at for future release.

That was the 18" figure by DST that looked about a third as good as this one. It had an ultra skinny body (like others in that series), inaccurate facial sculpt, and badly sized clothing. The only thing it had going for it was the cheap price (which probably made in unfeasible to produce).

That one failed at wholesale, but was actually solicited. DST repurposed the head and hand sculpts into their vinyl bank, which is why the Frankie bank doesn't hold up to the rest.

That's interesting. I agree that the likeness is a miss but still bought one. People are over charging for the color version of the Frankie bank online since DST hasn't produced any in a while. King Kang Kong gave some info on this in another thread.

We actually did multiple production runs of most of them, and I think we will continue to for the foreseeable future. We released the first ones three or four years ago, and made new batches each year we released new characters, but I believe we plan to keep them in stock for retailers as long as we have the license.

I'm not sure when the next run of Frankenstein, Creature and Mutant will be, but we still have stock of Bride and Wolfman, and ALL five black-and-white versions, on our website, but we do charge the SRP, which is $22.99:

The Mezco looks a lot like the Frank in Doorway kit Möbius did a couple of years ago, which was "meh". The Mezco is only better because it comes with the squeezing a turd head, too.
Bob, you're doing what you always do. You find something that people are excited about and try to suck the joy out of it. It's  your MO. You know that this looks nothing like that atrocious Mobius kit (unless your vision is seriously impaired). You shouldn't even be concerned about this piece. You rarely like realistically sculpted modern toys, and you're a notorious cheapskate. You're obviously trying to bait a fight and then whine about being the victim.

Looks like a Pee Wee Herman version of the Monster.  The face sculpt is way off.  The neck bolts are ridiculous. Sideshow already did a great quarter scale monster.  The Mezco one is worlds better than this organ grinder monkey.

They used the head and hands on the DST bust bank. I have one of those, it's not very impressive. I would have bought the 18" figure had it been released, but would never put it in the same league as the Mezco.Frankenstein.

In that case, the sculpt is ok, but not that accurate. The Mezco is definitely more accurate.

"Perfect Accuracy" doesn't necessarily translate to instant monster greatness in a toy or figure to me-and the wrinkled Don Post Strange mask comes to mind. It is a sculpt- someone's interpretation, and technically inaccurate. But it has some artistic quality (that you can't quite put your finger on) that makes it unique. It is stylized and an interpretation. Like Wolf Man and Woof Woof. Like a Marx Frankenstein robot.
The Möbius kit is technically closer to accurate than the classic Aurora sculpt, but come on...   


To me, the 1/4 scale doll had some of that same realistic yet stylized quality, with an intangible coolness factor to it.

The problem with trying to go dead on realistic with the Karloff Frank is, the subject matter is so familiar that inaccuracies really stick out. Like "jaw too big",etc. For as much as the subject has been done "realistically" over the years, it is interesting they don't look MORE alike.

And I agree with the notion that realism/perfection-wise, the Billiken Frankenstein is the epitome, and would be hard to knock off the throne.

No sir. Too bad, too. I think it would have been great as a large scale figure. It has that same quality that some of the vintage wax museum Frankensteins do. Karloffian, but...   
And you could always repaint or airbrush it.

The sculpt looks great from here and for $75 I would have grabbed one.

This new one? I will have to see a true production model, not a prototype photo.
 Price is about the same as the proposed 1/4 scale, but it's Mego sized, and well, hmmm. I bet with the background it will be $125. 

Cheapskate wants to see a real one.

Post by: Mord on July 27, 2016, 01:16:46 PM
The picture posted of the DST 18" Frankenstein was a prototype. If you want a glimpse of what the finished piece might have looked like, check out the DST bust bank from 2010. Not so cool, right? Like I've stated, I would have bought the 18" myself (with all it's flaws). I don't really think that it's "stylized" at all. It's an attempted Karloff likeness that missed the mark (like the Mobius kit). I don't think that the Marx Frankenstein is stylized either...it's a pretty good likeness of Glenn Strange (and my favorite toy ever). While I agree that nothing will ever top the Billiken Frankenstein for likeness, this Mezco one gets pretty close (especially with the extra "turd" face). If it looks anything like the pictures, I'm definitely getting. Hey, I live with mom and dad, I can afford expensive sh*t.

One of the fascinating things about not only the DST 18" Frankenstein but their entire 18inch line that was shown that year (there was also an Indiana Jones and other figures) is that buyers at Toy Fair kept comparing other items to them. For 4 days it was "Well, if Diamond can do an 18inch figure for X why are you charging XX for a 6 inch figure or XX for a 12 inch figure?"

By the 2nd Day of Toyfair a mass of other manufacturers were huddled around the booth trying to figure out how Diamond managed such a low price point. Then, a few months later it became apparent, they couldn't and they didn't. The price was FAR higher than they had said and the figures were not produced. But even to this day, people bring up their amazing price point...forgetting that the price point was never achieved.

There is a very old joke about a woman who goes to a butcher and asks for his price on pork chops, he sais 10cents a pound, the woman scoffs and says the butcher down the street sells them for 7 cents a pound. The butcher asks "Why don't you buy them from him then?" and the woman replies, "I can'
t, he is sold out" to which the butcher replies "When I'm sold out my price is only 5 cents"

There aren't enough of us to make it profitable. They only way to keep the price down is to mass produced these. Unfortunately,  the customers are no longer there for the classic monsters. The 18"ers would have been a huge smash in the sixties. They would have sold for seven bucks and would have been advertised in Famous Monsters and Monsterworld.

It's  the same sculpts but got flattened/warped in production (as Anton noticed). The paint app also contributed to its lackluster look. The 18" was better painted and did not have the head flattened during the production stage.they are supposed to be quarter scale,  but the sizes are way off. The Wolfman is small, the Bride and Mutant are huge, Frank and Creech are somewhere in the middle.   ?????????

I refuse to participate in FB culture.  It irritates me that some people do business entirely on FB, so I am unable to access their catalogs, etc.

Too many times, I have seen family strife over FB posts.  People will forget that they are not sharing only with select individuals and share much too intimate details about themselves and their immediate thoughts - and in writing, where it can bet copied and live on the Internet forever.

I resisted Facebook for a long time but eventually I started to see the benefits. Most of the mask makers both large and small have abandoned web sites like this all together. Just take a look at the HMA.net, it's a ghost town. All the great mask artists I've met over the past couple of years all connect on Facebook and share on Instagram which I'm only now just starting to get into. Facebook has also put me in touch with other monster lovers that I've never met before. The other benefit is I've re-connected with friends I haven't seen in many years and would not be talking to if not for Facebook. And lastly it's simply a convenient way to share things that are important to you with all your friends with a single post. Also, one of the big reasons I suspect is that you can post photos directly to Facebook without needing a host site. Are there knuckleheads on Facebook with annoying posts, of course, and I'm so sick of political posts where people try to influence your thought process. But you know what? You can ignore them which is easy to do.

That being said I still love sites like these because the people here are here for one reason. Monsters and Horror related topics!  Sharing with you guys helps me get through my otherwise mundane work day.

I'm 47 and have been on Facebook for many years. It is amazing if you use it to keep up with family and friends all over the world. It can only destroy your life if you do something stupid. If you are a cheater it will always get you caught. If Zuckerberg was a cheater he would let people delete private messages.

Here's to hoping they get Wolfman right. I am still plenty ticked about that lunchbox though. Yet I will take your advice, and not hold it against Mezco. even though they are directly responsible for mrs. bates's tease and subsequent cancellation. Now, if they made Psycho 1: 12......I would be jazzed.

Well. First off, my Gal took me to see Bad Moms. Holy f***! Really funny, mind-numbing Hollywood, highly formulaic film. Then cruised over to Toys R Us, and bought the Texas Chainsaw Massacre(VIDEO) Neca neon green figure. Then my Gal's parent treated for dinner. Yummy, Italian food. As we drove, I blasted KISS ALIVE!(best live album, ever!)
and my Wife gave me a tour of College Point (Queens N.Y.). Home of the Ramones (R.I.P.)

All-in-all it was a terrific Birthday. Unfortunately....there were no Strippers involved. However. There were plenty of hideous, what looked like a couple of them hanging-out by the movie theatre. Yikes!

GG, I was told by the Mezco representative (who sounded knowledgeable about what he was talking about) at Comic-Con that there was a "good chance" the diorama would be sold WITH the figure next year.  My guess is that the B&W version sold out quicker than expected, so this would be a good reason to put more into production.  Maybe the Mezco guy on this board can shed more light on this, and whether other Universal Monsters are being looked at for future release.
I was talking with Damien (one of Mezco's Living Dead Doll creators) at Monster Mania in Saturday about these figures, and from his conversations with Mezco at the SDCC, he said the stone wall was was coming this fall as a separate purchase, NOT with these or future figures. I guess time will tell.

The shop actually does a "group buy" for local comic shops from Wichita to Ponca City OK. the more they spend, the cheaper the discount they get from Diamond. My friend ordered it for his comic shop and I get it at cost.

I think it's sad that the line never happened. That was THE best poseable Franky  ever produced. If you can't sell that, the rest are doomed (except, possibly, The Creature). Still, it's really hard to cough up 70 bucks for a 6" figure.

Trust me. If I happen to see Michael Markowitz of Mezco at either WonderCon or SDCC this year, I will state my case why WE MUST HAVE a One:12 Wolf Man or Gill Man.  I believe either of those figures would be a more popular and better selling choice than Frankie.  I can only imagine how great each of them would look under the talented hands of Mezco’s sculptors!  It would be an absolute shame if the classic Universal monsters line began and ended with Frankie.

Shame they aren't continuing the line.  Wish they would.  I know Gill Man would sell well for sure.  A Lugosi Dracula would too.  They wouldn't even need a Universal license for that one.  And a Wolf Man would round out the crew. 

I really wonder if the Karloff Frankenstein has been done to death.  I have to admit I'm kind of over him.  Am I done with the monster as a character, though?  No.  I know I'd buy up a lot of Glen Strange monsters at this point.  Still, I am glad we got a Karloff figure from Mezco.  I bought both and the base, not so much because I wanted another Karloff monster, but because I wanted the rest of them.  That being said, I don't need any more Karloffs from Mezco.  Chaneys, Lugosis, and Gill Men, yes, I need those.
