Munsters Select Series 3 Action Figures Are Hotrods?




The Munsters are coming back again and this time they are coming in the so called “Hotrod” series. The Munsters Select Series 3 Action Figures are based on the classic TV show of America’s favorite monster family! This 4 member family (series) is due out this fall and features Herman, Grandpa, Lily and Uncle Gilbert. They are all back in all-new, episode-specific outfits, and even a brand new build-an-accessory, the family staircase with Spot, all sculpted by Jean St. Jean!

The Munsters Select Series 3: Uncle Gilbert
The Munster family has many branches, and one branch is inhabited by Uncle Gilbert, a strange, dapperly dressed undersea creature. A resident of the Black Lagoon, he once asked the family to hold onto 180,000 in Spanish doubloons he had salvaged from various shipwrecks. This 7-inch scale figure depicts Gilbert (played by Richard Hale) as he appeared in the 1965 TV episode “Love Comes to Mockingbird Heights.” Uncle Gilbert will only be available as a Previews-exclusive Select figure, and includes parts to build the family staircase diorama.

Clocking in at 350 pounds and 7 feet 3 inches tall, Herman Munster was built in 1850 by Dr. Victor Frankenstein, but is nothing like Frankenstein’s monster of legend. A good-natured, soft-spoken funeral home employee, Herman is a World War II veteran, a good husband to his vampire wife Lily and a loving father to his werewolf son Eddie. This 7-inch scale figure depicts actor Fred Gwynne as he appeared in the 1965 TV episode “Hot Rod Herman,” when he got mixed up in drag racing and lost the family Koach. The Select version of Herman includes parts to build the family staircase diorama; the basic figure will also be available at Toys “R” Us.

Born Lily Dracula of Transylvania, the matriarch of the Munster family is the daughter of a vampire, but werewolf blood also runs in her family, as both her brother and her son bear the curse. Loving dust and decay, she keeps the Munster household nice and messy, and is also an adoptive mother and confidante to her niece Marilyn. This 7-inch scale figure depicts actress Yvonne DeCarlo as she appeared in the 1965 TV episode “Hot Rod Herman,” complete with parasol. The Select version of Lily includes parts to build the family staircase diorama; the basic figure will also be available at Toys “R” Us.

The Munsters Select Series 3: Hotrod Grandpa
Sam Dracula, the famous Count Dracula of legend, was married 166 times, and even though his wives are all dead, he still keeps in touch. Over 600 years old, he personally knew King Arthur and Jack the Ripper, can still turn into a wolf or a bat (if he takes his pills) and is also a persistent inventor. This 7-inch scale figure depicts actor Al Lewis as he appeared in the 1965 TV episode “Hot Rod Herman,” when he modified his own coffin into a race car in order to win back the family Koach. The Select version of Grandpa includes parts to build the family staircase diorama; the basic figure will also be available at Toys “R” Us.

All 4 of these figures are going to be specialty store exclusives, or available online from your favorite retailers. The basic version of the figures will be at Toys “R” Us. Pre-order your set today HERE.
