Action Figure Review: Vincent Price (Ascot) from Vincent Price ReAction by Super7


   Today I'm looking at another ReAction figure I had picked up for 31 Days of Toy Terror: Vincent Price! I believe this figure is technically called Vincent Price (Ascot) as there is also a Vincent Price (Grey Scale) figure. Vincent Price has always been a big deal but it seems like he's really getting some attention from action figure makers right now as you have the Super7 ReAction figures of Mr. Price, Egghead from McFarlane's Batman: Classic TV Series line, and NECA's Toony Terrors and Vincent Price Ultimate figures coming out next year. The first real horror movie I ever saw was The House on Haunted Hill when I was in grade school and though I was familiar with Vincent Price from The 13 Ghosts of Scooby Doo and his narration in Thriller, his role in The House on Haunted Hill really made me a fan. The guy is such an icon that companies can just release a figure of him. Actor, narrator, chef, and art lover, Vincent Price was a multitalented individual. Let's take a look at this cool tribute to a true Renaissance man...

The Positives:

Height: 3 7/8ths

Articulation: Swivel hips, swivel shoulders, and a swivel neck.

Accessories: Raven

Non-Scalper Price: $20 dollars

Little Known Fact: His amazing voice was just an act. He really spoke with a Missouri twang and liked to sing bluegrass!

The Packaging:

* Super7 does really nice packaging design on their ReAction figures and Vincent's card has a great portrait of the man himself rendered by Ed Repka. 
The Positives:

* This is a pretty simple figure. While my pictures are darker, the figure is really decked out in a dark brown suit with a white shirt and a red ascot. Its's very simple and makes for a nice Vincent Price you can kind of use for all seasons. 

* Considering the scale and the intentional retro style of the figure, this is a pretty solid Vincent Price likeness. The eyes, eyebrows, and mustache are perfect. You can just hear his voice in your head when you're looking at the figure, can't you?

* Vincent is a traditional ReAction figure so he's sporting the basic joints: Swivel hips, swivel shoulders, and a swivel neck. He feels nice and solid though he's not really designed to do much but hang around and look groovy.

* Vincent Price starred in quite a few Poe adaptations (including 1963's The Raven), so a little Raven has been included with him as a companion. Neat!

The Negatives:

* My only complaint with the figure is that the hairline is a bit messy. There's not a clean edge here and a spot of paint is missing on Price's right side. 
   If you kept this one mint on card and displayed him on your wall or with your movie collection he'd make a neat pop culture collectible. When you take him out of the package he's not quite as exciting. He's cool, don't get me wrong, and the headsculpt is actually quite nice, but this is a rather simple figure that doesn't seem as exciting as most other ReAction figures. It's a Good figure. Vincent Price fans will obviously eat this one up, but for everyone else there's not a whole lot to be excited about. 


 If you're looking for more figures based on Vincent Price I've also reviewed the McFarlane Toys Batman: Classic TV Series Egghead.


  1. I'm kicking myself for not pre-ordering this. Looks like the hunt is on

    1. Good luck! I found an Amazon preorder in late September/ early October. He's been sold out on Super7's website for quite some time.


What'chu talkin' 'bout?
