Lon Chaney Jr.
Early 2014 will bring a bunch of cool items from Diamond Select Toys, and on tap for horror fans they have two new Universal Monsters banks and the first-ever Tarot plush item. There's something for everybody!
Diamond Select does its best to scare us every Halloween with new toys and collectibles based on the classic creatures of Universal Studios' Universal Monsters library, and this year is no different. DST has new action figures, retro-style figures, and vinyl bust banks.
The late great Lon Chaney, Jr., is synonymous with one classic monster movie character, and if you don't know which, you should trade in your horror fan membership card. (Yes, we have them. Okay, maybe we don't, but it'd be cool if we did.) Years after his demise his family is now suing the studio that he helped put on the map.
For those who think mash-ups of popular icons is something new (i.e., Freddy vs. Jason, Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, Sense and Sensibility and Sea Monsters, etc.), Trembles is here to remind us that's hardly true. Case in point, this week's MPP: Dracula vs. Frankenstein from 1971 directed by Al Adamson.
