Up close with the Universal Monsters

phantom of the opera Mego figure headsculpt by Sean Sansom

The Megomuseum was lucky enough to spend a little time with the original head sculpts for the upcoming fourth wave of Diamond Select Universal Monster figures produced in conjunction with EMCE toys.

Both figures were sculpted by veteran toy sculptor Sean Sansom, who has crafted some memorable Re-Mego figures such as Bif Bang Pow!’s Twilight Zone Bob Wilson and the upcoming Creature from the Black Lagoon.



It should be noted that the Metaluna Mutant is still pending licensor approval and could be changed. So this is not the final image.



October 2013 can’t get here quick enough.
