    That could be great news...maybe it's going to be a fully authorized accurate Bela after all.

    Either way, I'm still betting the licensing issue revolves around that figure.
    Lugosi Jr. has a decades old reputation of being difficult to work with whether you're making a licensed Dracula that looks like his dad or an unlicensed one that even slightly resembles him.

    LOL...doesn't surprise me. There's an old joke about Bela Jr. being a worse bloodsucker than his father ever was.

    Any photos of the proposed Frankenstein and Dracula figures? Seems odd to push back an entire wave over potentially one figure.

    Lugosi Jr. had to fight for years to get control of his father’s likeness. He blazed the trail for other estates, and is fierce in his defense of the property. The studios thought they “owned” everything associated with the films back in the day, and the litigation was long and expensive.

    I don’t blame him one bit.

    Mego already licensed a Lugosi piece - they should pay the freight on this - it will sell more in the end.

    I think they should release Shazam and Black Adam by themselves now, and release the monsters later.

    Ach, GlobalObserver, that's distressing.

    I really like Capt Marvel and Black Adam, maybe Lonnie has a good point.

    Sorry to tangent, but along the lines of 14" figure availability...
    and I am a bit salty Black Manta is still not available unless you buy a whole case of figures. Everyone else in that assortment is available to buy individually, why not Black Manta?
    thats ok with wave 7 monsters and WOK figures i'm going broke anyhow
