There couldn’t have been a better time for a TMNT X Universal Monsters figure to be announced than the lead up to Halloween. The perfect, and timely announcement is only outdone by the very cool Raphael re-imagined as Frankenstein’s Monster.
NECA maintains their awesome figures with this release that takes the classic and moody, Raphael and crosses that bad boy over with the very rad design of Franky’s monster.
This is the first of the Universal Monsters X TMNT line. Each release will see a new turtle transformed into a familiar Monster icon.
The official NECA description goes like this:
The line will pay tribute to the world’s most famous turtles and Universal’s icons of horror. Inspired by the silver-screen classic Frankenstein, celebrating its 90th anniversary in 2021, Raphael as Frankenstein’s Monster reimagines the temperamental Turtle as the misunderstood monster. Includes metal chain, interchangeable hands, and two lightning bolt sai.
The Raphael Franky’s Monster is due to release Feb. 2022. You can head over HERE to place your pre-order to guarantee yourself one of these awesome figures.
Which other Universal Monsters do you think will get the TMNT treatment? I’m hoping for Donny as The Invisible Man. It just seems like a good fit. Oh, and how about Leo as Dracula?
