Definite pass!!  This is not a good kit.

This thing looks horrible, and that comment is being kind. Looks like everything from the  concept, sculpt and paint job was "mailed in". The original Aurora version blows this away!

yes the original wasnt perfect but it had style. a grave for a base. a headstone for a nameplate, and in the back!

well done figure all around. reachin for ya! kinda hard for a kid to glue the top half of the model body onto the bottom half but...

i know some model sellers are hot to have us all support garage kit guys but... a classic is still a classic.

too bad revell/monogram didnt also at least pick up the option on some others besides an occasional luminators kong or phantom...

(and if anyone knows of other optional 1/8 scale base kits for dracula, frankenstein, wolfman, creature, i would appreciate some hints.)

A couple more images from Moebius. Do keep in mind that this is still a test shot, although the final version is not likely to be dramatically different. Might not change any minds, but I'm growing more convinced that the kit has good potential.

You'd never hear me running down the original Aurora monsters. They're all terrific. Isn't the Aurora Frankenstein Monster still the biggest-selling figure model of all time?

As for optional bases, are you familiar with Night Owl Models? Rick Evans has done neat replacement bases and expansion parts for the Aurora Dracula, Frankenstein, Dr. Jekyll as Mr. Hyde and more.

Nope, still poo poo ca ca. I simply don't get how with all the technology available today something like this can still happen. The Aurora kit was done back in the stone ages and yet manages to make this one look amateurish... While i am elated Moebius went out of their way to give us all something special, i can't help but be disappointed at how far off target this kit ended up being. I bought two of their glow Big Franky's, so i'm not just blowing smoke. If i like it, i'll buy it...gotta pass on this one, though.

I really like Frank.  Iíve known him for years.  But I gotta admit this is disappointing.

Well like Todd said this is still a test shot and I think with a couple of minor Mods this kit can be awesome, I never liked Frankenstein with a flesh tone finish and tend to like the ashen (dead) gray/greenish skin tones...( I'm not knocking the painter, just the paint  ;D)
Yeah I think this kit has a lot of potential...Let's not forget the Aurora Bride of Frankenstein was called one of the worst kits ever produced, but has stood the test of time IMHO

If I was in charge of this project I would hire a different sculptor - FAST

The more I look at it the worse it gets. The proportions are so completely wrong compared to the Karloff monster. The face looks nothing like Karloff or any of the F. monster incarnations

New sculptor, please - save this trainwreck and make us a great Frankenstein!

Slightly disappointed. The mouth and jawline look weak.

The door open wider and a more baleful expression on the Monster would more dramatic.

The long legs with a too high crotch needs work. I think that is more distracting than the head. Every Frankenstein toy/sculpt looks different so I can live with the head. But the legs have to be redone. Having said that, I will probably buy it anyway because I'm a collector of classic monster stuff. It just won't be a favorite thats all.

I'm not trying to be mean, but a sculpt such as this should just be abandoned IMO...start fresh. It would take as long to fix this thing as it would to sculpt a new figure...

May I ask who the artist(s) is? Is it too late to change this?

OK, call me crazy, but I like it.  Of course, I can't paint that well, but I'd be very happy with one.  I may have missed it-- Do we know how tall it's supposed to be?
