Just in time for Halloween, NECA has announced a crossover line of action figures featuring Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles as classic Universal monsters. The first figure in this wave is Raphael as Frankenstein's monster, and we have to say - it looks amazing.
The Frankenstein Raphael figure is 7-inch scale, and includes a metal chain, interchangeable hands, and two lightning bolt sai. It's also loaded with details that like a worn suit, broken gauges, and a manhole cover used to patch his damaged shell (a nice touch). Pre-orders are live here at Entertainment Earth now for $34.99 with a release date set for February.
If this TMNT x Universal Monsters mashup seems odd to you, consider that Playmates Toys recently released action figure 2-packs that include 6-inch figures of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles facing off against stars of Netflix's Cobra Kai series. The wave includes Raphael vs. John Kreese, Leonardo vs. Miguel Diaz, Michelangelo vs. Daniel LaRusso, and Donatello vs. Johnny Lawrence. Pre-orders for each of the 2-packs are live now via the links below.
