One of my favorite action figure series that I’ve come across in recent years is Diamond Select’s Universal Monsters.
Their series have spanned the most popular films of the series with Creature, Dracula, Frankenstein’s Monster and his Bride with the Wolfman. DST has now announced their third entry into the popular toy series set to be released this Halloween.
This series will include the Metaluna mutants from This Island Earth and the titular characters from The Phantom of the Opera and The Invisible Man. With regular retail versions hitting stores there will also be Toys-R-Us exclusives for all three.
The figures look fantastic from these pictures. The detail on the sculpts look great as does the paint jobs. Being a fan of the other series I have very high expectations for these toys. No official release date or MSRP set but if I were to wager a guess I would say the last week of September with probably a $16 price tag on each.
