    EMCE/DST Universal Monsters

    I'm late collecting these excellent figures I wanted them all when they came out, but I was the only one working in my household so money was tighter than usual. I remember having been able to hold ALL THE figures in hand at TRU and pleaded with my wife the Creature figure was going to be hard to get if we didn't buy right then, right now. Alas, we couldnt budget for it and I'd be right. I never saw the figure on the hanging pegs again.

    I received my new, unopened figures of the Mummy and Dracula today. Spent $45 shipped.

    I remember an old thread by a member here who rewrapped his Mummy. I'm unable to find the thread in a search, can someone help me? I think there was a separate thread about Dracula and how a member made some painting touch ups for the better. Anyone know of that thread? I like the Dracula fine but the example of the face on the cardback looks nothing like the figure whereas the Mummy looks consistent from picture to actual.

    If anyone has one extra figure of Werewolf, Creature FTBL, Frankenstein, and the latter wave figures and wants to find a new home for them, look no further.

    I don't remember paint touch ups for Dracula, but I know I did one for Frankenstein and the Wolfman.





    It's not how hard you hit, but how hard you can be hit and still move forward.

    I highlighted the Mummy's wrinkles, but I didn't unwrap him. The highlights really improved the sculpt.

    I added Flatt Drac hands to my Dracula.

    I shortened the Wolfman's shredded trouser slightlys, and added a cloak braid to Phantom.

    My Bride is wearing white Dinah-Mite shoes.

    Pictures look cool! I wonder if I misunderstood and the rewrap was paint highlights. It was years ago. I could have sworn the person acknowledged how his or her revision looked like bandages rather than a body suit. Was curious again for comparisons sake. Kicking myself for missing these when they were originally offered, regrettably nothing can be done about it, no time machine. But I'm gradually getting caught up on retro reissues. I even intend to buy the Mad Monsters down the road, which I hadn't before because the Dracula looked goofy to me. But they're somewhat charming especially the cool Mummy. Every week I try to buy something EMCE or FTC.

    The EMCE/DST universal monsters collection was a favorite of mine, I still have Frankenstein sealed, but sold
    Dracula Mummy and Creature, now I wish I kept them, oh well.

    By the way you got a darn good deal for Dracula and Mummy sealed for $45 shipped, that was the second wave,
    I've seen Dracula alone go for that much on ebay.

    Another wave of universal monsters would be sweet, but since nothing came out last Halloween, I'm thinking
    this line is finished, too bad though, I would have loved seeing an Invisible Man, the Fly and the above mentioned.

    Oh, the line is long-dead. I'm just dreaming.

    I regretfully missed this line when it was out too. I've picked up the Bride and the Mummy. I'm looking to get the rest eventually.
