 Could the Chaney license be the difference? I noticed that Wolfman and Phantom have the Chaney name as licensor (no mention of Uni). Creech is licensed exclusively by Universal. Maybe they impose their crappy artwork on all their new products. It sounds like something they would do.

It could also be that they were going with this box art design originally and then shifted gears later, and Creech suffered from being the first one out of the gate. 

That's possible.

None at all? Universal owns the WM character. The Chaney estate just owns what little of Lon's face shows through the makeup. I could, maybe, see then arguing PD for the Phantom.

Its true. Both Wolfman and Phantom boxes have zero mention of UM copyright. Just Chaney Entertainment. But Creech and Invisible Man have it.

Very odd!

Does the IM box back have a photo, or the style guide art.

I got three of them today.  As stated earlier, IM and Creech are uni.  PTO is Chaney.  Did not get the Wolf Man.  Hopefully soon.  These are beautiful.  Really hope to see the rest this coming year.

These ornaments are fantastic. I had them shipped to work and a co-worker even commented how amazing they were when he saw them on my desk. I sincerely hope they come out with the rest. Crazy good sculpts.

Doh!

This would get expensive real quick, but I'd love to see them expand their Twilight Zone license to ornaments. Would kill for a Serling!

Did you have them in the box, or do they stand on their own (like busts)?

I doubt they stand on their own. There is a window on the box so you can see them. I donít keep them at work I just had them the day they arrived.

Wow!

I don't know how much these things are, but I WANT one!

If Bela Lugosi, Jr. doesn't add his dad to this series of ornaments, he's nuts.  This is the kind of thing crying out for a 1931 Dracula.

Yeah.  I went back and read through the earlier posts.

I like the way TOTS has you sign up for their newsletter.  You enter your email and are taken to a page where you enter your email again and put in your first and last name.  Then they send you an email with a confirmation button to let them know it is really you and not someone screwing with you.

Where I used to work, we would get bundles of 100 or so postcards to send in for catalogs and samples.  We used to fill out all the postage paid ones for people we didn't like and check the "Please Call Between" times during the most inconvenient hours.
