Interesting to me, and probably to Universal Monster
fans. From the collectible figures, I've already assembled a Monster Squad
, with the Gillman played by an Atlantis Barracuda Guardian.
My favorite monsters are the ones who were just misunderstood, and as much victim as they were victimizer, like the Wolfman, the Gillman, and Frankenstein's creature.
If anything, this give us more theme fodder for building contests, "From Bricks to 'Bominations"?
Reminds me...I have to add the new Wolfman movie to ye olde DVD Netflix queue. Haven't seen it yet. I think to put me into the mood for these new sets, I should go rewatch some favorites, too.
For the Gillman, it's the original for me, Julia Adams is so pretty.
For Dracula, Bram Stoker's Dracula makes me laugh out loud whenever Keanu is onscreen, but Gary Oldman is fantastic.
For Frankenstein, Bride of Frankenstein,
For the Wolfman, American Werefolf in London,
For the Mummy, don't really have a favorite, didn't really like the new Mummy movies, and the old ones, meh.
But back on topic, I think these sets are a great way to get a kind of licensing awareness, without actually having to pay for a license. Brilliant.
