The Scream of 31 Days of Toy Terror: Dracula from Universal Monsters: ReAction by Funko
Only one more day until Halloween! That means that we're almost at the end of The Scream of 31 Days of Toy Terror, but it's not over yet! Today I'm checking out Funko's ReAction Dracula figure from the Universal Monsters line. I purchased the entire set of these when they came out five years ago and they're still some of my favorite faux-vintage Kenner styled figures. Dracula is one of the biggest movie monsters of all time and this figure is based on the portrayal by which all others are measured: Bela Lugosi in 1931's Dracula. Let's check this guy out after the break...
Height: 3 3/4ths inches
Articulation: Swivel hips, swivel shoulders, and a swivel neck.
Original Retail Price: $10 dollars
Year of Release: 2014
* This version of Dracula nails the classic look in a very Kenner way. Actually, the figure looks a little more advanced than the early Kenner stuff, so maybe this is a figure that would have appeared during the ROTJ era of Kenner figures. The Count is wearing his tuxedo, his mysterious medallion, and a black cape. The sculpt is sharp, the paint details neat and clean, and the figure's black and white colors scheme really fits the dark, moody ambience that surrounds the character.
* Dracula comes with a vinyl cape, just like the vintage Star Wars figures wore. It looks a lot like Darth Vader's cape, which is actually a plus. I wouldn't try to remove it, as it could tear, but you could if you wanted to.
* Like a vintage Kenner figure, Dracula features swivel hips, swivel shoulders, and a swivel head. He feels like he's made of a much higher quality plastic than many of the other ReAction figures from the Funko era. He's a pretty decent vampire figure to menace your other Kenner styled figures.
Do you get a kick out of Dracula? I've reviewed plenty of other Dracula and vampire figures including the vampire from the Playmobil two-pack 9307 and the Take Along Haunted House, the Vampire bobble head from Classic Friends, Dracula from the Big Bucket of Monsters, the Dracula Playset from McFarlane's Monsters, and Dracula from Monster Fighters.
