Publish date:

The Creature from the Black Lagoon and Frankenstein’s Monster will be haunting toy shelves this Halloween, as Diamond Select toys reveals its new assortment of Universal Monsters figures.

The seven-inch scale action figures will be heading to Toys R Us stores across the US this month, before being unleashed for general retail in time for October’s annual spook-fest.

Both figures feature new sculpts while Frankenstein arrives with the prosthetic arm of Inspector Krogh.

But worry not, hot on the monsters’ trail is Diamond’s original take on the famous monster hunter, Van Helsing, armed with an axe, sword, crossbow and rifle.

Deluxe versions of the monsters and the hunter will also be released with monster bases replicating iconic settings of the Universal Monster movies, including a laboratory wreckage from Son of Frankenstein and an undersea rock formation from Creature of the Black Lagoon.

Van Helsing meanwhile, can be found standing on the grave of a female vampire as she rises from the dead.
