NECA is continuing their Universal Monsters line with the full reveal of Boris Karloff’s Mummy from the classic The Mummy film. Like the Frankenstien Monster the sculpt is absolutely excellent and the paint is fantastic as well the likeness to Boris Karloff figure is excellent. I cannot wait to see what this figure looks like in hand. The texture work on the wraps look fantastic and very impressive. I haven’t seen the Mummy film but I know Karloff isn’t in the wraps that long at all in the film.
The Mummy comes with a lot of accessories including three interchangeable hands, a pair of interchangeable hands, removable loose wraps,Egyptian scroll, and a chest. Unfortunately there’s no sarcophagus but I think that may be released in a accessories pack down the line.
This figure is scheduled to be released this December at all good retailers here’s the press release from NECA:
Universal Monsters Mummy
In anticipation of the 90th anniversary of the extraordinary silver-screen classic, NECA announces The Mummy will be joining its Ultimate action figure line! Once again, Boris Karloff shines as the ancient Mummy in a tale of love transcending death. The sculpt captures the intricate special effects makeup that required eight hours to apply and two hours to remove.
