It looks like the old Remco Monsterizer.
Good call

That's a lot of fun. The one in the promo image is clearly the vintage one, but I'd buy a remake of it.

A new Monsterizer would be really cool, but I doubt we'll get one. I wouldn't re-buy all of them, but I love my old glow in the dark 4" Remco figures and I'd buy at least one glowing monster from this line.

Not unexpected but disappointing the Invisible Man is the look from the beginning of the film and not the iconic smoking jacket with sweet shades. Oh well.
same... i'm not thrilled about this one

I am sure they will release the other look eventually. The good thing about the Invisible Man is, you can also not buy him and pretend that he's there.

So, they skipped Dracula, then. That's disconcerting. Lugosi's likeness has been notoriously hard to get so it was kind of a big win that they did. I hope we're not looking at another Chief Brody situation.

Yeah, I'm starting to worry about Dracula. That Lugosi sculpt was the main reason I dove into this line.

Retro glow in the dark three pack is up. I want them but I wish I didn't have to destroy the packaging to get them.

Not the look I want but I like the heads. I'll likely bite.

Pretty sure Randy or Trevor mentioned they might not do B&W variants for EVERY figure.

I'm way more excited about these than the regular versions and I love the price! I ordered a set, but may get a second to open.

Which is understandable, especially for the characters that are more recognizable from their color or colorized films, but Invisible Man is like one of THE black and white Universal Monster movies. Seems silly to make B&W Frank, Wolf Man and the Mummy and not Invisible Man.
