    The Grayscale Frankie was a SDCC exclusive launch doll, she is identical to the general release Frankie but shes Black & White (and tones of Gray -hence Grayscale) -And Silver

    Her box is all black on silver foil base, and she came in a black mailer box (like the MOTUC figs white version) covered in silver cob webs!

    shes stunning in person!


    On display at SDCC.

    I kind of like them, but I I'm unable to see the similarities between those dolls and their Universal Classic Monster counterpart. Guess that's not good

    I agree. I think part of it is that they don't have the rights to the Universal Classic Monsters(the wolf girl is said to be the daughter of "the werewolf" and kinda looks like a cat) and also that this line is targeting pre-teen girls. I still like the idea but I wish they looked more monster-like.

    It doesn't say Universal anywhere on the packaging. They're just the offspring of classic monsters, not those particular interpretations. Lagoona Blue is the offspring of "The Sea Monster" not "The Creature From The Black Lagoon" which is a Universal-exclusive character. And like Mr. Shokoti said, Clawdeen is the daughter of "The Werewolf" not "The Wolfman."

    I LOVE that Grayscale Frankie! Even though, they AREN'T based on the Universal versions, that's immediately what I thought when I saw her in black and white like that! VERY cool! Guess I'm off to eBay!

    I really like Ghoulia Yelps but Hoyt Hyde has changed what I originally thought was the line's system: making classic male monsters into females(Dracula, The Creature, Frankenstein's Monster, Wolf Man, The Mummy) and female monsters into males(Medusa). I figured we were going to get a male with hair like the Bride Of Frankenstein next.

    So is Hoyt Hyde his Hyde/evil self? Where's his Jekyll? Maybe his Jekyll could be female.

    My bad, everyone. It's Holt Hyde, not Hoyt. I've been watching True Blood Season 2 and it features a character named Hoyt and it got stuck in my head. Also, Deuce Gorgon lists his best friends as Jackson Jeckyll, so are they two halves of the same coin?

    I wonder if Hyde/Jekyll will have different outfits and faces/heads or if they'll double-dip and sell two figures.

    That film was the American take on this British one from the early 70's.




    I love Holt, but I admit i dont quite get the Red flame hair and flame detailing (but I LOVE the translucent plastic used!)

    That was actually the movie I was looking for(I didn't even remember the Tim Daley movie until I saw the poster), but I felt the picture worked better on the poster that I used since it showed an actual transformation. There was also an exploitation movie with the same premise as Sister Hyde that came out a year later called The Adult Version Of Jekyll & Hide.

    For those listening to Roast Gooble Dinner, you heard how even I stopped to check these out at SDCC.
    I think they look really awesome!
    I definitely see the appeal.

    Absolutely, as A kid (and even now) I loved any music videos that had monsters in them, so Thriller was the ultimate. but another one I adored was this one



    Obviously based on 'Island Of Doctor Moreau',I seems Diana has been 'Experimenting' On shipwreck survivors! -Also snacking...on parts of them! lol!

    Yeah, I actually went to the youtube stuff and saw that one. It's great. I laughed pretty hard when they told her to compliment his eyes and she moans and sticks her finger in his eye.

    Now, what were we talking about again?

    Oh yes, Snorks. Or something.
    Hah. just wanted to report back and say I have now seen GaGa and can't make up my mind about who is better. They are both amazing, and although similar in personal causes and music, are quite different in their theatrics.

    I'm not as much of a concert guy as I was in my teens and 20's. I think the last time I saw a female solo act was Alanis Morrisette. I barely remember it but I do know she didn't wear masks or cones on her boobs.
