They also did a Fay Wray / King Kong Barbie. She is dressed as Ann Darrow; with an accompanying big, hairy paw and Kong's face in the window!
Yes, I remember that one, and it was quite cute!  The Barbie version Star Trek figures were also very nice.

I would kill for Reaction versions of Renfield, Van Helsing, Henry Frankenstein, Larry Talbot, Maleva, Dr. Reed, Kay Lawrence and Lucas.

My exact list but Id add the Rita, a Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde 1931 (but Id happily take an Abbott & Costello Hyde as a replacement). Also a London after Midnight figure and while were dreaming figures of Abbott & Costello themselves.

In reality, Id be more than satisfied if they ended up making the 3rd Wave of monsters they showed at Toy Fair. With the way the worlds going those not happening wouldnt surprise me.

I would eventually love to see more Lugosi characters in Megostyle or 12-inch scale.  Of course, we all know this can only happen once Bela Jr. gives his blessing or passes.  The idea of having Murder Legendre, Sayer of the Law, Ygor, Dr. Mirakle, Armand Tesla or Count Mora, Dr. Virus Werdergast/Dr. Richard Vollin, etc. in cloth action figure scales never done before would be AMAZING!

I have the Sideshow White Zombie 12' figure of Murder Legendre. It's one of my fav collectibles.

I do as well, geezer!  Great figure from Sideshow, but I would also love to see him in Mego size (along with some of his zombies!).

Some Island of Lost Souls figures would definitely be great.

Some of those creepy animal men would be awesome as figures! Also a Charles Laughton Moreau would be cool!
I forget, does Universal own this film now?

They do. They released the VHS, but Criterion released the DVD/BD.

Hanna-Barbera Cartoon Playsets: Marx or MPC should have released playsets based on the 1960s HB adventure shows like Jonny Quest, Space Ghost, The Herculoids, and Mightor. If the human characters were released in slightly smaller scale then vehicles like the Phantom Cruiser would fit better, and the dino figures would go with the Mightor character figures better.

Turok, Son Of Stone Playset: Marx should have released a version of their 1975 Prehistoric Mountain Playset with figures for Turok, Andar, and some of the weird tribes they encountered in Lost Valley.

These could be made now for collectors but they would be very expensive if done well.

But as we all know, once done, they will be able to reissue them FOREVER.
