Diamond Select Toys has enlisted the talents of EMCE Toys to sculpt another round of 8-inch retro monster goodness. This latest wave features The Bride and The Creature from the Black Lagoon, complete with cloth costumes, 14 points of articulation and clamshell packaging. These will release in October for less than $20 each.
Diamond Select Toys brings two classic creature designs into the action figure realm with a new wave of Universal Monsters. First we have Lon Chaney in the title role of 1923′s The Phantom of the Opera. He stands 7-inches tall, fully articulated and comes with an organ. Then we have the Metaluna Mutant from 1955′s This Island Earth. He’s 7-inches high and is packaged with the interocitor device. These will run you around $20 each with a release date of September.
Lon Chaney and Boris Karloff get immortalized with a new set of 2-inch figures from Diamond Select Toys. 1925′s Hunchback of Notre Dame
will inspire a 4-pack featuring Quasimoto, Phoebus, Esmeralda and a “King of Fools” version of the Hunchback. The other 4-pack is based on 1932′s The Mummy
with Im-Ho-Tep, his Sarcophagus, Princess Anck-es-en-Amon and Helen Grosvenor. Both sets will release to specialty stores and comic shops in September. Toys R Us will also sell two-packs featuring The Mummy
’s Princess Anck-es-en-Amon with an exclusive figure of Henry Whemple, and a black and white set with Lon Chaney as Quasimodo and Boris Karloff as Im-Ho-Tep.
