|What Was in the Boxes|
Both figures come with connect and collect parts to make the Munsters staircase and pet dragon Spot. Next week I'll be opening up the final figure in this wave, Uncle Gilbert, and then I'll be assembling the staircase. Both figures also come with that same piece of asphalt that Hotrod Herman came with, the one that is supposed to be an action figure stand, but Diamond Select forget to put a peg on to attach to the figures feet. Great.
|Lily and Grandpa|
Lily comes with a parasol, like the one she held in the Hot Rod Herman episode. In the promotional photos, she is holding it over her head. But in reality, the grip on her hands is way to wide for her to hold it up like that. I can put it on her hands, where is can rest loosely. But it will fall out if you try to make her hold it up high, or if you move the figure even a tiny little bit.
Grandpa comes with two accessories, a pair of goggles and an alternate hand holding a cigar. The goggles fit great, and didn't require any stretching to fit on his head like Herman's goggles did. I was able to remove and reattach his regular hand easily, but I could not get the alternate cigar hand onto his arm no matter how hard I tried. I'm guessing I probably could do it if I held it under boiling water for 20 seconds to soften it up before I try putting it on. I haven't tried that yet, but if I do, I'll add it in to my Uncle Gilbert review next week.
see my review for that figure here). I really don't need two nearly identical figures of the same characters. At least Herman and Grandpa got totally different outfits. I really think they should have come up with something to make the Lily figure more unique. If they couldn't have found a more unique outfit for her to wear in one of the episodes.they could at least have painted her dress a different color (the show was in black in white, so they have a lot of leeway there). Grandpa does have a unique outfit, so he's not so bad, although honestly, it's not an outfit I really needed to have. His classic Dracula suit is so much cooler. Neither one of these figures is really that bad, but I don't think I would have bought them if it wasn't for the collect and connect staircase pieces.
That's all I have to see about these figures. Check back thought the week to see more toy reviews of werewolves, vampires, apemen, and other weird creatures, my latest Halloween themed music playlists, a few movie reviews, and who knows what else (well I guess I know, but you don't, so come back to find out)!
