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.

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:

Entertainment Earth:

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.

Collecting Rondo Awards 2015 Best Toy / Model / Collectible Nominated Toys

I recently published my ballot for the 2015 Rondo Hatton Horror Awards. Rondo Hatton Horror Award I Voted Button

As an affiliate for Entertainment Earth, I got an email early this morning that one of the nominated toys, the 24-inch Godzilla 2014 Action Figure, was on sale for 25% off today only.

Normally a $50 toy, I thought that was worth sharing so feel free to click the link to Order Godzilla 2014 Movie 24-Inch Action Figure from Entertainment Earth!

This got me thinking that it might be helpful if I compiled some links to sites where readers can buy all of this year’s nominated products — toys, magazines, books, DVD/Blu-rays, etc…

In this post, I’ll start in on the Best Toy/Model/Collectible category.  I’ll link to as many sites as I can find the item and list the current pricing.

Keep in mind, this pricing can, and probably will, change over time and the prices I include in this post are based on the prices listed on these sites the day I published this post.

I’ll also add all of the items sold on Amazon to our Amazon store, Lair of the Classic Monster Collector
