For over ninety years, Bela Lugosi’s appearance in Universal’s Dracula has inspired generations of movie vampires, costumes, toys, and various other depictions in pop culture. Bela was imposing and seductive, from the red-lined cape to the sharp tuxedo.
Over the past two years, we’ve seen a noticeable uptick in the amount of Universal Monsters merchandise hitting the market. Since the “Dark Universe” failed to launch, Universal must have realized that you can’t really replace the originals. I’m not complaining. This means more awesome monster stuff!
And that’s the case with the latest statue from Iron Studios.
The statue-making company is producing a new 1:10 scale Deluxe Dracula statue. It is priced at $189.99. It stands 8.6″ tall, 9″ wide, and 4.3″ deep. This incarnation of the bloodsucker is made of polystone and will start shipping out during the fourth quarter of 2022.
In the border between Transylvania and Wallachia, in the middle of the forest in the Carpathian Mountains, a noble and eccentric aristocratic figure, dressed in a gallant formal suit open its red and black cape like giant wings of a night creature, fixating its hypnotic eyes to feed from the blood of live prey to maintain its power and immortality. Thus, Iron Studios proudly present their statue with the most famous vampire from fiction, on a diorama pedestal with the staircase steps from its castle and a wild wolf howling by its side, highlighting its power to control the creatures of the night.
Dracula, already available for Pre-Order, adds to Iron Studios’ collection along with The Wolf Man and The Mummy, both also available for Pre-Order, as another pop icon inspired by the horror movies and immortalized in different film productions. Iron Studios will also bring the regular variant statue with the figure of the vampire lord in a simple pedestal from Iron Studios.
