The Best Monster Toy Ever?

I'd say so!  It's the official photo of the Aurora Frankenstein model.  The first in the popular line of Aurora Monster Models!

  1. I second the motion. First bought this model around 1970 or '71, had a few more since then. Got two Aurora versions, the first Monogram release, the Luminator one, and also one issued in the original long box. Great model, and a dead-ringer for Karloff's face in Bride Of Frankenstein. Interestingly, the box art is an amalgam of Glenn Strange and Boris, in that the pose and face are based on a publicity still of Strange, but the illo features the over-sized clamps (sometimes referred to as 'horns') that were only ever seen in a photo of Karloff's test-makeup.
