COUNTDOWN TO HALLOWEEN 2013
THE HAUNTED TOYBOX
CTVT MAD MONSTERS REPRODUCTIONS
The Mad Monsters were originally made by Mego in the 1970s. These were Mego's version of the Universal Monsters. The four figures were Human Wolfman, Dreadful Dracula, Horrible Mummy, and Monster Frankenstein. Mego didn't have the license from Universal to do official versions of these characters, so they are all a little bit off-model, to avoid being sued. For instance, Frankenstein has his bolts on his head instead of his neck.
|The Monster Frankenstein and The Human Wolfman|
|The Dreadful Dracula|
|The Horrible Mummy|
|The Snarling Face of the Human Wolfman|
|Dracula is goofy looking from the front, but is actually kind of evil looking in profile.|
Overall, I would rate the quality of these figures as acceptable, especially for the price I paid for them. However, I might end up buying some higher quality replacement bodies from someone like Doc Mego, and just swapping out the heads and costumes on to them. Supposedly the quality of Figures Toy Company's toys has been increasing lately, so hopefully I won't have any similar complaints about their upcoming Batman figures, because I really won't to like those.
