Diamond Delivers New Karloff and Chaney Select Monsters

Diamond Select’s apparent realization that (a) every one of their figure lines should be like Marvel Select, (b) McFarlane-style diorama figure sets are sorely missed and (c) $24.99 is an okay price point for this just continues to delight me. Check out these newer Universal Monsters toys, coming for Halloween:


That’s Boris Karloff as Dr. Jekyll AND Mr. Hyde, from Abbott and Costello Meet Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, and Lon Chaney as The Hunchback of Notre Dame (1923). These are the specialty market versions; Toys R Us editions will omit the Jekyll parts, have different bases, and feature a third, store-exclusive character, a Mole Person from 1956’s The Mole People.

I look forward to seeing more of the Sin City line planned in this style…
