No SSE of the second series. That's kind of a surprise. Guess they still haven't worked out the Lugosi issue either.

I wasn't aware of the two different Mummies. I have the one based on the first Mummy sequel and it's terrific.
Also have the Frank, which is also good. They look much better under normal lighting conditions (rather than flash). The Mummy has really impressive detail.

NECA released b&w versions of Frank, Wolf Man and Mummy, but pulled the Dracula. So unless you have a prototype of the Drac, 10 figures is a full set as of now:

Frankenstein's monster in color and b&w
Mummy in color and b&w
Wolf Man in color and b&w
Dracula in color
Creature in color
Bride in color
Phantom in color

Pictures of these just don't do em justice.. they really look killer in person. There's not one I've been dispointed in UM wise, and  only their earlier Gremlins Gizmo hasn't surpassed my expectations.

My wife gave me Frank and the Mummy for Christmas.  The facial features have great detail, and the Mummy's "good" eye is very creepy!  I wish Frank's scenic electronic gizmos could light.

What issue with Lugosi did they have?

Think it's something w Universal again, but I don't know for sure. I was wandering around the 2008 Toy Fair during set up and they had the SSE Dracula, the next day, when it opened to the public and I went back as a buyer, the fellow I talked with told me they had to pull it due to "a licensing issue". Far as I know, they have never produced the SSE and I don't believe they make the color Dracula anymore either (though there are PLENTY of those out there).

I love these Bobble Heads!
I have the Wolf Man, Frankenstein's Monster, Dracula, Creature, Mummy, Phantom!
The artist did such a good job with these - I wish he would do the Universal Collection with full size bodies!
Scale of course!
The Karloff Monster is my favorite!
The Toy Fair pics don't look any different than what they already offer - Could they be releasing a larger scale
bobble heads of the Universal Monsters?
I'm new to this web site and I think it's just GREAT!
Wish they would do Karloff as he looked in SON OF FRANKENSTEIN - A personal favorite!

I'd kinda like to see an abbot and costello like this as well as some others like Vampira, and other B movie favorites
