I kinda wish there were reprints of these with a color guide. It would be cool to pain them and hang them.

Sorry. I believe I transposed the vote totals for Dracula and the Creature. It's fixed now in my post.

Okay.  No need to apologize.  I was just wondering if people could retract votes!  hahaha

I honestly think Dracula and Frank are the best done. Although Wolfman comes in right behind. At least in my opinion.

I honestly don't care that much for the finished Frankie, but I love Dracula and the Wolf Man.  The Creature is also very cool.

I think I might have shared this story on the forum once before, but since it specifically pertains to this subject I'll share it again briefly...

My father had the Creature one when he was a kid. His mom bought it for him and when they got home he immediately opened it up and set to work on it. He worked on it for quite a while and finally got it done. He was so excited when he finished it that he propped it up on his desk so he could look at it while he laid in bed that night. When he woke up the next morning, he found (to his horror) that the paints ran and dried like that over night and the whole thing was completely ruined! He never got another one and ever since then always wanted to re-do it. So for Christmas a few years back i decided it would be a cool Christmas gift to hunt one down for him so he could finally do one successfully. That quest is actually how I found this forum! I learned that it was an incredibly rare piece but some of you were awesome enough to share some photos of the packaging and the item itself. I used those photos and set to work in Photoshop retracing it and reconstructing a new one as close as I possibly could to the original! It actually worked out really well too! He flipped out when I gave it to him and he finally got to paint one and have it survive!

THAT is a cool story!!
We're all here because we're not all there.
