This week, we're having a look at the April O'Neil as The Bride of Frankenstein
figure from the Universal Monsters x Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle
line by NECA
. This figure was available early as part of the Target Fall Geekout
event and will be released everywhere else later. I was a bit surprised to get a April
that early in the line (only Raphael
had gotten the Universal Monsters
makeover so far), but happy when I saw that they used the Judith Hoag
figure for that design.
As is tradition with that line, the box art
looks amazing. The illustrations from Daniel Horne
have been complementing the figures beautifully and those are boxes that you won't want to put in the recycle bin.
/The Bride of Frankenstein
comes with a lot accessories: an extra smiling head sculpt
, an extra pair of hands
, a handbag
, a microphone stand/staff
, Raphael/Frankenstein's Monster's sai
, 2 rats
that have had horrible experiments done to them (one has an eye on his back and the other has a human ear, and a tarantula
is great, all the details and sculpting look really nice. The head sculpts are very accurate, and the Bride of Frankenstein
's hairstyle looks good on the Judith Hoag/April O'Neil
's head, so if the actress didn't have an idea for a Halloween costume
this year, NECA
did the job for her. The accessories are nice too, with the creepy rats and spider. The staff being a microphone
is a great touch. The sai is also a nice call back to the 'normal' April O'Neil and the movie. Kudos to NECA for another great figure. The knees
only seem to always be April's Achilles' heel
Next week, Michelangelo as The Mummy!
