Halloween is just around the corner, and that means it is time to get in the spirit of the season. Diamond Select Toys has released a whole bunch of new Universal Studios Monster action figures to Toys R Us, and they look fantastic.

Currently at Toys “R” Us are two brand-new 7-inch-scale action figures: Frankenstein’s Monster as he appears in Son of Frankenstein, and a super-poseable version of the Creature from the Black Lagoon. Both feature entirely new sculpts by Jean St. Jean, and both come packaged on a blister card with a small display base. Additionally, the Monster comes with the prosthetic arm of Inspector Krogh.

As a bonus, hanging alongside the Creature and Monster is Diamond Select Toys’ original take on the famous monster hunter, Van Helsing! Also sculpted by St. Jean, Van Helsing stands around 7 inches tall, and comes armed with an axe, a sword, a crossbow and a rifle, all of which can be carried on his back. It’s the perfect companion figure to your Universal Monsters collection!

What do you do if you don’t have a Toy R Us near by?  Don’t worry, Diamond Select Toys has plans to send these figures to your local comic book and specialty store very soon.

    And as I have neither in my immediate area (within a good 2 – 4 hour drive), looks like I’m going to miss out. They never have these cooler things in stock when I do manage to make it in.

    Still, they look pretty spiffy!
