It is typical of the Standing Frankensteins.  The tend to get vertical cracks - especially in the base and lower legs.  I always thought stress lines were formed when the plastic was pushed into the mold through the two holes in the base.  Maybe exposure to sunshine weakens them over the years, too.

Never noticed it in other castings.

Interesting! So it's not the case of there being a deficiency in the plastic compound employed. There's actually a flaw in the design of the Frankenstein sculpt or mold.

So I posted a photo of my Mold-A-Rama Frankenstein in the "Blow molded junk" thread, and thought Mold-A-Rama deserved it's own thread, since there are a handful of them that are of definite interest to monster fiends.

Most of us remember Mold-A-Rama machines at local zoos, museums and theme parks offering various animal and historical statues, but some movie monster creeps and beasts were creeping within' the mix as well.

Frankenstein

King Kong

Jaws

Frankenstein bank

Bat

Skull

Robot

And here is the company that currently owns and operates the machines....

I like the Jack-O-Lantern and the Bat the best!
