While my favorite Universal Monster is the Bride of Frankenstein, the Creature from the Black Lagoon is my second favorite and, to me, the coolest looking monster of the old classic era of horror. I been a fan of the movie and the monster since I was a child and saw the classic film, in 3D no less(!), on TV ages ago. Well, now Mezco Toyz has released a limited edition version of him. And, it looks amazing and absolutely kick ass!! I want one, badly at that!
From the Mezco Toyz press release:
Mezco's award-winning design team journeyed deep into the unexplored depths of the Amazon jungle searching for fossils...instead they discovered The Creature! Mezco Toyz brings to life The Creature, from Universal's sci-fi, horror gem, The Creature From The Black Lagoon.
This Creature variant is cast in Translucent Green material.
The iconic scaled terror from the deep stands 9" tall and captures the intricate detail of the pre-historic gill-man; from his mysterious amphibious eyes, to his claw tipped webbed hands.
With 11 points of articulation he'll be able to take out any scientist who dares to come between him and his true love.
The Creature is packaged in a full color, collector friendly window box perfect for display.
This Mezco Summer Exclusive is a Limited Edition of 100 pieces and is available online at
as well as at New York Comic Con, October 10-13.
