A better shot of the lunchbox. Notice Dracula? Its Carlos Villar. No Lugosi interference...but still a Universal Dracula. Its very clever. This lunchbox is easily the Universal Monsters product that has excited me the most since Sideshow gave up the Ghost. JUST LOOK AT THAT WOLFMAN!!!! Wolfman finally gets his do!!!!!

 Is the back the same as the front? I love the idea of using the Spanish/Mexican Dracula. I wish they would have done that with the figures. Could we possibly get a Glenn Strange Monster figure in the future? It looks like somebody at DST has been reading our posts.

I hope not! A prominent Creature would be nice! Though I'll bet it's not decorated on all sides, like the Aladdin.

While the jury is still out on whether its double sided or not: there's no reason to doubt it. look at their upcoming Alien and Predator boxes.

Definitely decorated all around like the 70's Aladdin 1979 box. See the Phantom of the Opera on the left panel? Loving it!!!!!!!! Maybe the reverse side has Moleman, Mutant, etc....Werewolf of London would be a welcome addition,lol.

A Spanish Dracula, Strange Frankenstein, Kharis Mummy, and Wolf Man front and center. That is a very interesting lunchbox!

Use the lunchbox to put the bags of figures in, take 'em to work, and play all day. Just tell your boss, it's my job, I'll do it my way. lol

Nice to see Wolfie get his due.  Manufacturer's usually use Frankenstein or, occasionally, Dracula.  Lon would be proud that his baby got to be the featured monster on this box.

Wish we could see the other side of the box and all sides of the thermos.  Things like this need to be displayed in front of a mirror.

Isn't this just a prototype, waiting for approval?  I'd love to see it released but I'm betting it will face Universal tampering before all is said and done.

Way to rain on the parade, ZH. ;)

I'm a realist, it's what I do...just like Universal usually screws the pooch when it comes to monster related products.

The side opposite Phantom is the Invisible Man. Goggles and robe visible when enlarge in Windows Paint. Still leaves top, bottom and opposite side. Plenty of monsetrs to plaster to choose from.
