Hey there, I've just got back into collecting action figures. Currently, I'm collecting Universal Monsters figures. I've got nothing old or rare at this point but i'd really like to see your collections. I'm really interested in getting the 4 Imperial pieces and the Remco Mini Monsters. Thanks for sharing!
Very Nice Imperials! Thanks for sharing. Here's my universal figures, nothing rare, or old in my collection..yet. I've got the Burger King Wolfman from the 1990's, The Remco sized ones are from the Reaction line, and the bigger ones are from the retro cloth line.

I think I need more Creature figures though, just deciding which to get is difficult LOL
An old... 'friend' of mine had a Creature FTBL torch figure with poseable arms. Had it on his car key ring. I don't collect Universals, but I always wanted that one. This would've been late nineties, but don't know when the torch/figure actually hailed from.
I liked the Sideshow Toys 8 inch Monsters but like McFarlane Toys stuff, they are some overall fragile items. Especially some of the figure accessories. Also, is it just me or is the Imperial Frankenstein's head too small for his body?

I own a range released by Universal Studios in 2000 ( unfortunately have not been a member long enough to add photo's yet! ) I picked them up via the Spencer Gifts chain the rolled out in the UK.
Figures were called 'Universal Studios Monsters of the Silver Screen' ( or something close to that ) the set I have comprises Claude Raines' Invisible Man, Lon Chaney's Phantom of the Opera & his Hunchback of Notre Dame, Elsa Lanchester as the Bride of Frankenstein, the alien from This Island Earth & the original Creature from the Black Lagoon. They are all 8" - 8 1/2" figures ( other than the Hunchback, he stoops over at about 6 1/2" and all are done in a silver effect. Each figure is incredibly detailed down to each scale on the 'Creature FTBL' and the hair on the Bride for example.
They all come with their own stand designed to be as if direct from the film itself with title of the film displayed and each has it's own accessories such as the Bride, Invisible Man & the Phantom each have changeable heads, so Bride wrapped in bandages or Bride with big hair, Invisible Man wrapped in bandages with sunglasses or Invisible Man clear plastic head & Phantom as the ugly phantom that he was or with hat and scarf wrapped around face.
The 'Creature FTBL' comes with a harpoon gun and net, the Hunchback comes with crown and sceptre, the Alien comes with those weird stick poles he had in the movie.
I have them on display and as soon as I'm able to add photo's I will, I still have the original packaging somewhere too!
It really is a great set, if I remember correctly it's 1 of 2 sets they released!
