Action Figure Review: Frankenghost from The Worst by Super7
Height: 3 3/4ths inches
Articulation: Swivel hips, swivel shoulders, and a swivel head.
Non-Scalper Price: $15 dollars
* First things first, you gotta recognize that Frankenghost is molded in translucent plastic. Most of the figure is molded in a smoky plastic while the head and hands are translucent green. The body clearly has a lot of intricate sculpting here since Frankenghost is wearing a traditional Frankenstein's monster suit while wrapped in chains but it is a bit harder to notice with the darker colors. Holding him up to some light really helps show off the sculpt.
* The headsculpt is creepy as well. Again, it's tough to see but the detail is there and those eerie red eyes really seal the deal on this guy. Does he have a metal jaw? It looks like it to me.
* If you've ever picked up a retro figure like this, you know what to expect: 5 points of articulation and all swivel joints. He feels quite well made and sturdy and definitely of a better quality than some of the earlier Funko ReAction figures that Funko put out. Super7 has been very consistent in the quality of their ReAction lines.
* If you read this site regularly, you know that packaging has to be pretty special for me to bother mentioning it. The Worst has some incredible card art and is absolutely worth mentioning. Featuring illustrations of the characters by Ed Repka, a prominent illustrator of album covers, these cards really bring these characters to life. Without this art and a glimpse into the "idealized" versions of The Worst, I don't think these figures would have half the appeal they do. As it stands, the card art is one of the best parts of the figure.
* I love the little locks and chains all over this guy. He's kind of got the traditional ghost/ Jacob Marley thing going on, doesn't he? Or the Ghost of the Alamo.
* I like the ball and chain that Frankenghost is toting but I wish it were a separate accessory rather than a permanently sculpted part of the figure's foot.
This is the first figure of Frankenghost I've reviewed. For more figures from The Worst check out the following:
