I have a two part silicone mold for popping out resin Aurora Dracula heads. I made it years ago when I was making fantasy Dracula Pez dispensers. I checked the mold today and it's still in plenty good shape. Should be able to pop out dozens upon dozens of heads. I can hook you guys up when the time comes.

I went to the Revell website.  According to them the resissues (which they say aren't available yet) are licensed by universal, Karloff and Chainey.  So I don't know what's going on.

Has anybody seen these in stores yet?  If so, any news on the changes?  If not, any idea when they will be coming?

Someone needs to buy one of these and actually check the head and see its been resculpted (which would be expensive). I think it would be hilarious if they just changed the box art and catalogs to sidestep copyright issues, then blow the kits out with the same old mold 'as was'.

I did pick up the Dracula and Frankenstein at HobbyTown USA. Mummy and Wolf Man are released next month.

The head sculpt of Dracula has been changed. It looks like the picture on the box...fangs and all.  The little mouth-piece from the original sculpt is included on the sprue too, but there is no use for it. Everything else looks the same. It is molded in medium gray plastic. It has the Universal Pictures license stamp on the bottom of the base, as well as the Revell.

Frankenstein is the original sculpt.....except his right hand is palms down as on the box. I would post a picture of these but I can't locate my camera cable...

There's a reasonable b&w close-up of the head in the new AMAZING FIGURE MODELLER.

That's one way to appeal to the younger generation.

I bought a Dracula kit.  It's the fang head only, which I'm sure you all knew.  I had to know.  Now I sort of regret it.  I'll never build it... I have a couple of long box versions and a Monogram kit in the garage. 

Oh well. I had to know.
