More Universal Monsters are on the way, thanks to NECA! This time around, we’re looking at Claude Rains’s version of The Invisible Man from 1933 and a trio of glow-in-the-dark classic horror creatures.
The Invisible Man was based on the H.G. Wells story by the same name. It was directed by the man who brought us Universal’s Frankenstein just two years earlier, James Whale. It starred Claude Rains as chemist Dr. Jack Griffin, who is driven mad thanks to the ingredients used to turn him invisible. The NECA figure captures Rains’s iconic look as Griffin, complete with interchangeable heads recreating the “invisibility” effect seen in the ’33 film.
The figure stands 7″ tall and comes with a variety of accessories. The Invisible Man is due out just after Halloween this year.
For the 90th anniversary of Universal’s sci-fi horror film classic, NECA is excited to reveal The Invisible Man in Ultimate action figure form! Starring Claude Rains, 1933’s The Invisible Man was based on the classic H.G. Wells novel and received critical acclaim, eventually being placed on the U.S. National Film Registry for its historical significance.
Next, we’re looking at the glowing trio of Universal’s most well-known monsters: The Mummy, Frankenstein’s Monster, and The Wolf Man. If you were a kid of the ’80s, you might remember Universal Monster figures popping up from time to time in glowy form. Well, NECA is plucking that memberberry with the retro-inspired line. The figures included in this set had previously been released as standard NECA figures. Here, they’ve been given a simplistic paint job, like the toys of old, and coated with glow-in-the-dark material.
Look for these three to arrive in October of this year.
