Socket Poppers/Con-nec-tors "Dr. Dracula the Vampire" Vintage Action Figure - Ertl/Matchbox (1990)

The doctor is in, and he wants to suck your blood!  It's Dr. Dracula, the vampire figure from Matchbox's Con-Nec-Tors in Europe, and Ertl's Socket Poppers here in North America.  I reviewed a few other Socket Poppers this month, but to refresh your memory, these are 3 3/4 inch action figures with head and limbs that can be removed and swapped with other figures in the line to create wacky combinations.  Plus, they also make great cartoony action figures on their own, even without the parts swapping.  Let's check him out after the break!

Dr. Dracula is a Bela Lugosi style vampire, but with pointy ears and purple skin.  Hey, wait a minute!  A Bela Lugosi style vampire with pointy ears and purple skin?  That sounds like Count Von Count from Sesame Street!

"2, 3, 4, 5... 5 removable body parts!"
The Doc has got the typical retro 5 points of articulation, and he has a bat that is permanently perched on his finger like a pet bird.  He's definitely on the goofy side of the action figure scale, but if you you're good with that, then he could be a solid addition to your monster toy collection.

  1. Being a vampire is not what it seems like. It’s a life full of good, and amazing things. We are as human as you are.. It’s not what you are that counts, but how you choose to be. Do you want a life full of interesting things? Do you want to have power and influence over others? To be charming and desirable? To have wealth, health, and longevity? contact the vampires creed today via email:
