Adam, you're a fellow So. Cal. guy, right? What brick and mortar store would carry these around here? I kinda like to touch, smell and lick my collectibles before I buy them.

I don't know. 

Since they are made by Rubies and are not an exclusive, they could be carried by Walmart, Target, Kmart, etc.

I hope we find out soon - I'd like to get mine cheaper than catalog prices and with no shipping.

I want to feel these, too.

Well...  Maybe smell.

I bought an old mask at a Goodwill store once.  It made my bedroom smell like I was living inside a 50-year-old box of rotted rubber bands. 

Yecch.

I'm thinking the "rigid foam" might be something like the dense foam that these old Don Post statues were made of.  Remember them?  They were 31" tall.



I hope they are not made out of the styrofoam that is found as packing material for electronics, etc.

I'd have to have The Creature hanging over the shower curtain!


Now that would be cool and awesome. :D

Can you get the enlarged version of the oil to come up? Rubies site does not function with iOS, and the enlarge button does nothing on my laptop in firefox, opera nor safari. If you can see it, I'd really appreciate you copying it and posting it here. Thanks for pointing it out!

I'll take one Creature and one Wolfman please. Hope I can snag one of these but I do have my sights set on that Spirit moving Frankenstein. I'm greedy, I know.

Aw, man!

I wish they would have stuck with the concept designs.

Universalrocks and Mike, thanks. For as much as they got wrong by changing the Drac from control art to final product(and avoiding a C&D), they seem to have gotten right with god ole' Gill:
