Wolfman & Larry Talbot

Universal Monsters is a new Minimates license being released this year. The plan is to release 2 packs, each featuring a different Universal Classic Monster, every Halloween. This year the movies featured are going to be the Wolfman and the Creature from the Black Lagoon. In addition to these 4 packs, Toys R Us will be releasing a number of 2 packs using the figures from the direct market 4-packs. (And some exclusives.)

Now since the 4-packs include redundant variations of the monsters, I decided it would be cheaper to just get a couple of the Toys R Us 2-packs. This is the first one. It features the Wolfman and the Larry Talbot, the man who turns into the Wolfman.

The Universal Wolfman always had some very non-wolf features, unlike the werewolves of the CGI era which basically look like giant wolves who can walk on their hind legs. But the Wolfman was always part man, and you can see that in this sculpt. The minimate kinda looks like a rodent.

Which really isn't that scary when you think about it.


  1. Looks like you store your spare Minimates the same way I do, funny.

  2. Yeah, it seemed the cheapest and most convenient way.
