    That's just a bad photo...the likeness is spot on.
    Yeah, the "mustache" is less severe in the "action shots". If it bothers me enough, I will paint over it. I rarely do that with toys I buy, but the rest of the figure is great, and I don't want one little paint detail to become a deal breaker.

    Yeah this is pretty rough. Looks like the sculpt may be there, but the paint is a mess. Hopefully can be fixed before release.

    From the Universal Monster Army board, the sculpts are fantastic. The paints are throwing it off.



    Now this actual color photo is from House of Dracula, I believe, and the makeup changed over time, but I have never been a big fan of the "pale" face on the Wolf Man. Brown looks better.

    The jaundice skin color and moustache are really killing that sculpt.
    You are a bold and courageous person, afraid of nothing. High on a hill top near your home, there stands a dilapidated old mansion. Some say the place is haunted, but you don't believe in such myths. One dark and stormy night, a light appears in the topmost window in the tower of the old house. You decide to investigate... and you never return...

    Yeah and even the B&W photos from the original show that while the lighter part is lighter, it's also clearly pretty dark. Just a bit lighter than the dark parts.

    Sculpt looks great in those proto unpainted shots.

    Someone needs to enlarge that Larry Talbot head to Mego scale!

    I really like the Larry Talbot head. But, yes paints are off on the Wolfman head.

    I agree that the sculpts look good, it’s the paint job that’s off. If your gonna spend the money, you want to be satisfied with the product.

    I don't care if the face is a couple shades too light. It's still the best Chaney Wolf Man sculpt EVER and light years ahead of that orange haired Mego abomination.
