I want more Ygor figures so bad.  Is the only official one the Sideshow 8 inch?

Also more Karloff Mr. Hyde!

It's crazy to think we never got a 12".

Sideshow had weird omissions.  How did we not get a Henry Frankenstein or Van Helsing or Dr. Praetorious?  That's insane to me.

Sideshow did a lot of homework, and did a lot of legwork to get deals done. One of which was getting the March Hyde figure made when he wasn't even Universal....but was the classic and most iconic Hyde. They weren't a "custom" figure company though...so they had to skip certain characters because there might be an heir out there who could sue. Colin Clive being the main concern. Couldn't risk it. Smaller garage kit companies or custom figure makers like DD even have to worry about these things, and on the grand scheme of things....not as big a house as Universal. It is sad they didn't get made. the ones you named...as well as Maleva.

When are those Walgreens B/W ones supposed to drop? I keep looking for them on eBay.

 Henry, Pretorius, Ygor, and, even, Carradine Dracula were done to perfection by Distinctive Dummies. They fit in beautifully with the Sideshows, so no complaint here. Who else has done Fritz, Renfield, Werewolf of London, White Zombie, etc.? I'm happy with what they got done.

I still would've did a happy dance if Maleva could've seen the light of day. When we got Bela The Gypsy....I was sure she was next. Alas, it all came crashing to a fiery end. Sideshow (to date) has been the best treatment the Universal Monsters have ever received by a licensed manufacturer in my eyes. Was everything perfect...No. Was most of it absolutely perfect: oh yeah.

It is a mystery. One worthy of Sherlock Holmes. :angel:

 Could be a licensing problem. I'm not sure how litigious the Rathbone estate is. I've never seen any Holmes figures, either.

  Itís a shame, one figure I really would like to see. Maybe if I get some motivation I would make a run in 1/6.

You would think it would have been worthwhile to secure Colin Clives likeness.   I'm sure a Dr Frankenstein would have done just fine.

'Bout time someone made really nice Rathbone Holmes and Bruce Watson figures.

Wouldn't it have been nice if Sideshow had made 8 inch figures of them around the time they were making the monsters?
