Rebel Frankenstein 9-Inch Figure San Diego Comic Con 2014 Exclusive
Frankie has attitude! Under the full moon on a quiet yet treacherous mountain pass, a single headlight pierces the inky darkness. An engine roars. Tires squeal. A solitary figure speeds past; all the girls want him, all the guys want to be him, and one scientist wants him to get back to the lab ASAP.
He is the Rebel Frankenstein! Assembled on the wrong side of the lab, this Frankenstein has attitude! He stands a monstrous 9-inches tall and features a sleeveless leather vest with his insignia, a real metal wallet chain on his belt, and a tattoo on his bicep.
This limited edition monster is cast in a mysteriously translucent green plastic and features ten points of articulation.
This Mezco Summer Exclusive is a limited edition of only 500 pieces! Ages 15 and up.
2 variations: Toys R Us exclusive (simpler, above-water base) and Deluxe variant available through Previews to Collectible Stores (underwater base)
Retail Price: $24.99

Features a skeleton and an undersea rock formation:

This one got my vote in this year’s Rondo Awards, if only because I love all-things “Creach.” Regardless of my personal bias, Diamond Select continues to up their A-game with their outstanding collection of the Universal Monster action figures at quite reasonable prices.
It’s a win-win for modern toy collectors of classic monsters. Here’s a well-done video review from Outside the Box Reviews highlighting this action figure in great detail. Check out their Youtube Channel for more reviews like this one:
Being a new action figure, and not a limited edition piece like some of the other nominees, the Creature is readily available at your favorite collectible or toy shop. I included links and current pricing to some of the shops I am an affiliate for below:
Of course, you can also buy this right from Diamond Select for retail price of $24.99
Congratulations to Diamond Select and Jean St. Jean on winning the 2015 Rondo Award for Best Toy– this is an outstanding modern toy of one of the most classic monsters and I’m thrilled to have this in my Creature Collection.
I’ll continue to profile this year’s nominees for Best Toy in my next post — did you vote for this one? If not, which one got your ballot? Share in the comments below.
