Iíll just wait for the NECA Mummy. Although I think the presentation is nice, the head sculpt is a bit too off for me.

Soo this is basically the same scale as the Diamond Select Mummy but with a weird face and Sarcophagus sculpting and an Anubis diorama in the back? Its pretty but for the size i was expecting much more.

Additionally, they posted a photo of the prototype for Dracula on Twitter, though I can't find any additional info:



Also FYI, I looked and the Deluxe Mummy Statue is priced at $199 now (https://ironstudios.com/product/the-mummy-deluxe-art-scale-1-10-universal-monsters/), and the "Regular" Mummy Statue is priced at $119 (https://ironstudios.com/product/the-mummy-art-scale-1-10-universal-monsters/).

In my opinion, the likenesses are really not done well at all.

I have to say I like that they chose this pose for Dracula.  You hardly ever see this pose.  Really cool, and rather a decent sculpt.  The Wolf Man on the hand...   :o

They're good, but something is a bit off.

I LOVE Dracula, he is really good looking but the Wolfman looks odd, more like ALF in Halloween costume.

Maybe it's the upshot angle, but it looks like there's either no Chaney likeness on the Wolf Man, or its way off. His toes look way too bulbous too. Looks like a Berni Wrightson drawing of Chaney's Wolf Man in 3D for some reason.

I received Dracula as a gift. I must say, while I don't know what the rest look like in hand, Dracula is really nice. Great pose, looks like Lugosi! Some sort of translucent resin may have been used for the head and hands, because they look great! The eyes really shine. I can recommend Dracula highly. This might prompt me to investigate Wolfman.

At first I thought you meant the video game company "Heavy Iron Studios".
I really want a classic monsters game.

I'm guessing Universal's feuding with the Chaney Estate is why The Wolfman has more "artistic license" than Dracula. IE, if you squint just right, you can see a bit of Chaney, but the hair is stylized and the face altered a tad so that the point can be argued. Dracula was whole heartedly sanctioned with the blessing of the Lugosi Estate. The Wolfman's graveyard tombstones have some interesting dates.

1941....the year The Wolfman debuted in theaters.
1906....the year Lon Chaney Jr. was born
1894...the year George Waggner (the director and co-writer) was born.

Those are neat little nods. I am considering getting him and seeing how he looks in hand. Dracula is so good, he has me reconsidering this line. Pretty sure I will want the inevitable Creature.

So, they haven't made that one that was pictured 3 years ago?

Not yet, which I find extremely bizarre, as Creechie is always a big seller.

With how good the likenesses are on the Necas I see no reason to own statues in this scale anymore.
Morning, noon, or night, Anytime . . . . the count may strike. If you're caught you have to linger, Cause Dracula may bite your finger!
