cant believe what im going to say since im semi retied from collecting BUT i wanna buy that Creature, looks real good
It does look good. The Diamond Select one was phenomenal. The Bride's body sculpt is also insane. They should have tossed in a mummy head. Nothing cannon, but it would have made me buy 2 of them.
They totally could have thrown in a canon wrapped head. I get why they went with the scream/hiss-head instead for the alternate, but I do think Sideshow did the wrapped head back in the day.

Damn, I don't remember her, but I have to think Jade knew about her and that's why the Bride's body is fully sculpted like that. Re-use to make money on that mold. Very cool

Wave 2 definitely has to have at least Wolfman (my favorite) and the Mummy. For the other two slots I wouldn’t mind the Invisible Man (pretty fair chance of them making one) and the Metaluna Mutant (I give it almost zero chance but one can hope).

Metaluna Mutant is the one I want to see most at this scale. Funko did him in their Pop! line, *and* the first Series of their Mystery Minis, so he's not completely off the radar of the public.

I really, really want this to happen.

Saw these in store for the first time. If Neca wasn’t doing theirs I probably would have been all over these. I think quality wise they fit in great with Marvel Legends. I just don’t think I need them. They were tempting though. No bride figure.

This was a Meijer by the way. Midwest chain similar to Walmart and target for people not familiar.

Haven’t seen these in person yet, but the promotional shots look good. The potential price tag makes me wary, but I’m still tempted. I agree that Wolfman and the Mummy are sure things, for future offerings.
Looking at the (perceived) quality, I’d also be interested in seeing their cast(s) fleshed out a bit.
Dr Frankenstein
Ygor
Renfield
Van Helsing

In addition to the Invisible Man, I also hope for:
The Hunchback of Notre Dame (1923)
Dr Jeckyll / Mr Hyde (1913)
The Phantom (of the Opera)
The Brute Man / The Creeper (1946)

Based on the review Robo did not too long ago, I'm going to need at least The Creature from this line.
