A Brief History of Werewolves in Plastic

With record snowfall to keep him locked inside with his toys and a new The Wolfman opening in theatres today, of course Nomad turned to his blog to celebrate werewolves by taking a look back at some of the best werewolf figures of the past several years.

Nomad’s Idle Hands Blog jogs the memory banks with mentions of these furry friends in their non furry format:

  • The Mangler from McFarlane, whose extended snout makes one think of a specific entry in the Howling series.
  • Howling Wolfinica, Yellow Submarine’s Resurrection of Monstress, which gives us a female version of the classic monster. And she even glows in the dark.
  • Werewolf by Night from Toybiz’s “Marvel Legends” line, which very well may be the most articulated werewolf figure ever brought to mass retail.

  • Wetworks Werewolf, another from McFarlane, this time favoring the bulky body not unlike the American Werewolf in London monster. He can stand straight up or down on all fours.
  • Raze from Underworld comes courtesy of Mezco, who nabbed the license but was a little too ahead of its time by producing figures in the currently favored 4-inch scale.

  • Vereticus, one of Stan Winston’s last line of action figures that was brought to retail by NECA. The “Blood Wolves” group also included the more feral wolf creature Lycon and Wulv, your traditional werewolf.
  • Were-Oz is yet another from McFarlane based on Ozzy Osbourne’s “Bark at the Moon”.
  • Oz from Sideshow is definitely one of the best of the “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” 12-inch line.
