NECA has announced two new figures for the Universal Monsters and Disney’s Gargoyles toylines.
NECA’s latest Universal Monster is the “Ultimate” Bride of Frankenstein. This version is in color, which sort of takes away from her iconic hairdo. However, the artists at NECA did capture Elsa Lanchester’s look quite well. The Bride also has two alternate heads, hands, and additional bandages.
The Bride of Frankenstein debuted four years after Universal’s iconic Frankenstein in 1935. Henry Frankenstein, who is thought dead after the events of the previous film, is nursed back to health by his soon-to-be wife, Elizabeth. Unfortunately, Henry’s creation, the Monster, has also survived and is again on the loose. Upon being found by Doctor Septimus Pretorius, the Monster and his new “friend” plan on creating a mate for Frankenstein’s creation. The experiment succeeds, but the newly created Bride is not at all attracted to the Monster.
The Bride is expected to arrive in stores this June.
“The debut of Universal’s 1935 film The Bride of Frankenstein promised audiences something “more fearful than the monster himself”!”
The Gargoyles line from NECA continues to grow with the introduction of the Steel Clan Robot. These figures act as the first army-builder characters for the toy line. Created by David Xanatos, the Steel Clan Robots resemble the heroic Goliath but with a deadlier edge.
These 8″ tall Robots come with three pairs of hands, effects parts, and detachable gauntlet blasters. Expect the robo-goyles to be in stores this May.
“Ruthless businessman David Xanatos created the Steel Clan robots in the image of the Gargoyles to be his personal army.”[Source: NECA] [Source: NECA]
