Marilyn was originally played by Beverly Owen, who left the show after 13 episodes:

Beverly Own Marilyn Munster

She was replaced by Pat Priest who portrayed the character fro the rest of the show’s run:

Pat Priest Marilyn Munster

It appears the maquette is based more on Beverly than Pat, though it’s hard to say exactly.

While the Lily Munster statue was the nominated piece for the Rondo Awards, it is worth noting that Tweeterhead is rolling out the entire Munsters family as a collection — check this out; I really love this collection.

While this statue didn’t get my Rondo vote, it certainly deserved to be nominated for Rondo Awards 2015 Best Toy category — the sculpt, paint and event the packaging are first-class.

In summary, I appreciate the quality and craftsmanship of this piece.  For the price, I would still spend my limited collecting budget on a high-grade vintage item first.

But that’s me.  Collecting classic monsters doesn’t have to be about vintage collectibles.  Tweeterhead is certainly proof that modern collectibles of classic monsters, like this Munsters collection, are worthy of collector’s interest and investment.

Anyone vote for this statue in the Rondos?  Anyone have this in their collection?  I’d love to hear from Munsters collectors in the comments section below!
