Even More Bela Lugosi ‘Dracula’ Figures Are On The Way

The 2020s are seeing a significant resurgence in Bela Lugosi’s Dracula. Tod Browning’s film is just over 90 years old, and Lugosi’s performance is still looked upon as iconic. Over the past two years, we’ve covered the announcement of several action figures based on said film. And here’s another one!

Make that two! X-Plus via the Big Bad Toy Store delivers “Normal” and “Deluxe” 1/4 scale Dracula statues during the 2nd quarter of 2023. The statues of Bela Lugosi in his classic Dracula costume are made of polystone and fabric. Both versions are 18.9″ tall, but the major difference is that the Deluxe one comes with LED effects in both Dracula’s eyes and the base’s tree. Drac’s eyes glow red and there’s an eerie blue glow terminating from inside the dead old tree. The vampire’s ring also comes with the more expensive statue.

Speaking of price, there’s quite an upcharge for the added features. While the Normal statue is $569.99, the one with all the bells and whistles is $624.99. What the ring is made of, its size, and if the gem in the middle is some type of cultured ruby are unknown, unfortunately.

Although I admire the attention to detail as far as the soft goods go, the face is not Bela’s. It’s way too long, his eyes are wrong, and he looks too old. Sure, Lugosi was in his late 40s during the filming of Universal’s Dracula, but he still had an almost ageless face then. So I’ll give X-Plus credit for including Drac’s ring in the Deluxe version. But I’d rather spend $355 and get the stellar Infinite Statue’s 1/6 scale figure from Sideshow.
