I know you're gonna hate this next statement....but I really dig those Emce booger. Esp. Phantom and Creature. The only one I have an issue with is Drac (for the obvious reason, he looks like my mailman and not Bela Lugosi). The Phantom and Creech are my faves.
I loved the Phantom and (to a lesser degree) the Mutant. The rest never impressed me, though I have them. I can't believe you didn't like the 8" Sideshow Wolfman, but this shrunken head EMCE version you're fine with (the ripped hippie pants and pirate belt buckle killed it for me).

I think it was those loose pegs that snapped on Sideshow elbows and knees (I had a loose set before I gave them to my brother) and the paint apps on his face that bugged me. I have seen re-painted ones that are great. I love Sideshow, but hold Wolfie to a higher standard,lol. As for the Emce Wolfman, I was no fan of the ripped pants, pirate belt or green, grren green clothing choices. But it looked like a toy. So I was ok with it. Even though he isn't my fave. As for fave Wolfman TOY that also makes for a great collectible for old poops like me....The Jakks Wolfman is the bomb. 8)

Wow.  So this is a re-release of an official Universal item without Universal.  haha  That is too much!

If this is going to be in the scale of the Drac, I'll get one because my Drac is too large for the EMCE figures.  Too bad we didn't get the Lonster.

 I'd go $2,500, but not a penny more.

Those are the only two EMCEs that I bought. And, yeah, that Phantom looks great!

I got spoiled by Sideshow and cherry picked some of the later lines. Of the Diamond Select figures I only bought the two Creatures, and both of those are among my favorite figures from any line. Really love the 1st one with Kay.  ;)

There's one up on eBay now...if ya got $2700.00...

That seller's brain must be a slow motion train wreck on a repeating loop.

I'd go $2,500, but not a penny more.
It's been lowered to $500. Knock yourself out, bro.  :laugh:

 I also liked DST's Karloff Mr. Hyde. It's pretty decent, and the only toy of that character.

 I don't know. If he knocked off $2,200, there must be a defect. Maybe the neck bolts have broken off, or something.

I was going to offer him a buck and a quarter, but couldn't get a shipping quote.

My luck he would accept my offer and charge me $800.00 for shipping.

That must be it.  :D

We know the seller is defective. Maybe he has one of those "Abby Normal" brains.  ???

I'm sorry guys, but this is just a dollar general store material

I must admit that this release doesn't really do it for me either. I did get a Bela shipped to me in the Uk that I was happy to pay that bit more for and love having him but I can pass on this one. If I could get one at cost and still lived in the US then I might have picked one up just for the completest in me but it's an easy one to walk away from.

Hopefully the Werewolf will fair better and the only other set I'm interested in seeing is the Blade Runner one but I'm not holding out much hope for that (although they did make a few hits with the first series so you never know).
