Universal Monsters Select "Son of Frankenstein" Action Figure - Diamond Select (2015)

Universal Monsters Select Son of Frankenstein Action Figure (2015)
Because you can never have enough Boris Karloff action figures, here is Boris Karloff once again as Frankenstein's Monster from the 1939 film "Son of Frankenstein." Son of Frankenstein was the third Universal Frankenstein film, and Karloff's last starring as the Monster. This figure is from Diamond Select, and has the improved articulation that their newer figures have, with "over 16 points of articulation."  It has a great sculpt and paint job, and comes with an awesome diorama base featuring some rubble from Father Frankenstein's lab and a piece of preserved lab equipment.  It also comes with the prosthetic arm of Lionel Atwill's police inspector from the movie, which is a bizarre but morbidly fun addition.   Look for more monster figures coming up though November on this blog, since I never got all of my Halloween posts finished in time for October's MONSTER MONTH (but that's okay, because "Everyday is Halloween").

  1. Nice pictures! I've never actually seen Bride of Frankenstein or Son of Frankenstein, but I just bought the Universal dvd set that includes all of the Frankenstein films. I'm planning to watch through them before long as I've heard that Bride and Son are even better than the original.

    1. Bride of Frankenstein is the best. It takes everything from the first and takes it to the next level, and adds a lot of humor and weirdness. Son of Frankenstein is the lesser of the the three. It was the first Frankenstein film to not be directed by James Whale, and it lacks his unique style. But it's still a fun picture to watch, it has really cool looking sets, and a great cast.
