Apparently that's all of them. The J&H box is much larger than the others.

Congrats Count! Did you just buy the 8" glow Frankie? I was looking at one on eBay for $24.95. It didn't sell and it went back up at $19.95 but it was sold by the time I noticed. Nice piece and I love the packaging.

It happens to all of us. I bought a set of the Marx re-issue figures for $40 and saw that Mike Scott had just sold a set for $20. Still a great figure even at $40. Mord said that these originally sold for $15 when they were new. :)

$15! Damn. Well I could believe it...where were these sold? Were they exclusive somewhere?  I know the translucent  Creech and Metaluna were Comic Con exclusives.

I'm not sure about the details. When I saw the one on eBay I PM'd Mord for his opinion. He worked in a store that sold the Sideshow stuff so he's very knowledgeable about these figures. Maybe he'll see this post and chime in or you could PM him with any questions. I'm sure he'd be glad to help.

 Hi, gents, I guess I'm late to the discussion. I worked at a retail store that sold those Sideshow glow 8" figures. They retailed for $15, BUT that was 15 years ago. You should be able to find the other two for about $20 ea., if you're patient. They were also going to do The Creature, The Phantom, & The Bride but they never got past the prototype stage. I've never seen one of those for sale at any price. One good thing, your 8" Frankenstein looks amazing, with or without lights.

Thanks for clearing that up Mord! The Sideshows are special to me, I'm trying to collect them all. When you worked at that store were you able to snag those figures?

I tried to pick up all the Sideshow stuff. Unfortunately, I limited multiples to color & black and white (no glows or translucents). My Sideshow pieces are still my absolute favorites. I got all the 8", 12" & quarter scales (plus 2 dios & other odds and ends). Keep building up your Sideshows, you really can't go wrong with the quality on those. Like Glenn said, you can always PM me if you have any questions (that goes for any UMAer). Good luck!
