    Series 2 Universal Monsters are here!

    Super7 has done it again and I was stunned by the announcement Series 3 is already in the works!

    This has to be the greatest monster packaging art ever. Even trumps the Remco Mini-Monsters for me.

    They do look great but I find these things a bit overpriced for me.

    I'm all in, they're gorgeous.

    I recently heard that they are seriously close to another Apes wave, not sure if that's true but i trusted the source,

    It is true...I've messaged back and forth with Ed Repka, who paints the card backs. He's working on them now.

    I like these, I was a little surprised at no-cape Phantom and another Creech, but they all look good. As noted, who can beat these cards?

    I'm already wondering about wave 3 lol:

    *Son of Frankenstein
    *Hunchback of Notre Dame
    *Mr. Hyde
    *The Creeper
    *The Ape Woman--she finally deserves a nod
    *Daughter or Son of Dracula

    I'm sure we'll see a variant mummy, Ardeth Bey, or The Creature Walks Among Us, but I advocate variety.

    Thanks! I bought an extra Red Death, but otherwise I'm keeping these carded and opening my Funko versions.

    They did more/cool/monsterific re-packaging recently at SDCC too… quite a good run they have cookin'!

    It's Ed's work really makes these and the Apes special and it's great that the S7 team values the art.

    Absolutely! I was lucky enough to get a set of the signed lithos from last year. I got matching set #2.
    When I saw them I had to have them. Probably spent more than I should have but they are just so gorgeous.
