Editorial Review

Designed for competitive or cooperative play, Go Away Monsteris a delightful game for pre-school-age children. It gives them powerover fears they might have as they "rid their rooms" of scary monsters.By providing each of up to four players with his or her own playingboard--designed to look like a child's room--the game cunningly avoidspotential squabbles over sharing. Players take turns reaching into a"monster bag" and feeling for pieces of furniture needed for theirrooms. If they pull out a monster instead, they can hide it or throw itaway while shouting "Go away, monster!" Players may help one another orcompete to finish their rooms first. --Lee Strucker ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Great entry game for very young kids!
I learned about it on reading many reviews at boardgamegeek.com, which is the best resource for reliable reviews of board games for kids as well as adults.Sure enough, my 2.5 year old son loves this game!I suggest hamming it up w/ much fear/consternation at the appearance of a monster.This adds to the mystery & excitement upon drawing each piece from the bag.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great first game for kids!
We bought this game for our son for Christmas and he loves it.It has really taught him how to take turns and cooperate with his sister when playing a game.It is also a lot of fun for him.Our son is has mild autism and the visuals of this game make it easy for him to learn and follow.

5-0 out of 5 stars Go Away, Monster! is a great game!!
Our son, who is now 3 1/2, has been playing this game since he was 2 years old.It is so easy to learn.The play is so quick that it holds the attention of a 2 year old.It's just like the "grow-up" games with playing boards and pieces.Everyone with young children should own this game!! ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars Dracula-- has some flaws, but still good
Dracula is a fun toy-- not educational, but fun. however, it has some flaws. for example, the arms are a little bit fragile. This toy does not teach anything, but it is a must-have for Universal Classic monster movie fans.

5-0 out of 5 stars Poorly done? I think not!
Before Jakks Pacific gave us that moderately acceptable Van Helsing toy line, they presented us with three lovely Universal Monsters sets: Dracula, The Wolf Man, and Frankenstein (from The Bride of Frankenstein). I have all three of these, and they're fantastic. Despite what you might read from some reviewers, the Dracula set is no disappointment. The likeness to Bela Lugosi is excellent on this 6 inch Dracula figure, and while it may not have the detail of a McFarlane or Palisades toy, it's a lovely representation of the character and his waning air of nobility. Dracula is nicely articulated and provided with an eerie castle archway set piece, complete with rat, hanging bat, candlestick, and a beautiful coffin and lid. Much to my surprise, the set even includes a bag of "Transylvanian earth" (tiny stones) to pour into the coffin for Dracula to rest on during the day. Dracula's cape is made of fabric, while the rest of his clothing are part of the figure. The playset is in full color, but for something more accurate to the original version, the new Series 2 playsets are exactly the same, only in black and white! These sets make great shelf display pieces, especially alongside the corresponding DVDs or books of your choice!

2-0 out of 5 stars POOR, BIG HEADED BELA...
And I don't mean big head as in ego...In conjunction with the release of Van Helsing last Summer and the release of the toys based on that big budget flop, Jakks Pacific released three action figures featuring Universal Films classic monsters of Dracula, The Wolfman, and Frankenstein. Jakks is most well-known for their long-running line of wrestling figures but Jakks has never been one of the better action figure makers like McFarlane Toys or Toybiz. Their figures have always been lacking in detail and its no different with this figure of Bela Lugosi as Dracula.

The figure just looks terrible...the legs look almost completely straight and rigid and show little detail...a hallmark of Jakk's early wrestling figures. A few wrinkes at the ankle is about all the character can boast for detail. How about a little paint to highlight some detail and give the figure some depth?

Next, the head is just way too big for the body. It's almost like Jakk's used a head off an old wrestler mold..again...a Jakks hallmark with their wrestling figures. On top of that it bears just no resemblance to the great Bela Lugosi who made this role famous on stage in the 1920's and then created a classic on the screen in 1931.

The only saving grace is the nice base/diorama that comes with the figure. The Archway taken from Castle Dracula with his coffin resting beneath even comes with a little dirt to put inside the coffin. Also the candle glows in the dark. A pity Jakks didn't put as much effort into the detail of the figure as they did with the base.

5-0 out of 5 stars The Misunderstood Monster
Before Jakks Pacific gave us that moderately acceptable Van Helsing toy line, they presented us with three lovely Universal Monsters sets: Dracula, The Wolf Man, and Frankenstein's Monster (from The Bride of Frankenstein). I have all three of these, and they're fantastic. Despite what you might read from some reviewers, the figures are fine representations of the classic characters. The likeness to Boris Karloff is excellent on this one, and while it may not have the detail of a McFarlane, Sideshow, or Palisades toy, it's quite detailed nonetheless, and anything the figure lacks is made up for with the stunning overall look it has while displayed in its corresponding set piece. This particular figure comes seated and chained by villagers to a stone floor base that the monster rips free from by pressing a lever in the back. It's a very cool looking effect that requires no batteries or other such annoyances! The scene is right out of the fantastic film "Bride of Frankenstein." The playset is in full color and the most detailed looking of the three in terms of realistic looking paint and style, but for something more accurate to the original version, the new Series 2 playsets are exactly the same, only in black and white! These sets make great shelf display pieces, especially alongside matching DVDs or books of your choice!

3-0 out of 5 stars Rather Bland Figure by Jakks
Jakks pacific (somehow) got the rights to put out three figures based on Universals Classic horror figures: Dracula, the Wolfman, and Frankenstein.Jakks has always been weak when if comes to figure detail athough they have improved somewhat since the days of their earliest wrestling figures.In general, the Universal monsters they did are fairly weak, lacking detail and only bearing slight resemblance to the actors who portrayed them.

Of the three, the Frankenstein figure, taken from A scene in Bride of Frankenstein, is probably the best.Bound in chains after being captured by a mob of angry villagers, the monster would soon break his chains and escape.I think the figure looks a little too "good" to be the figure from Bride who was burned and charred from surviving the fire in the windmill at the end of Frankenstein.Sitting and bound by the chains the figure looks pretty good and the base, chair, and chain detail are all pretty good.But Boris suffers really amateurish articulation at the knees and elbows and looks like one of those 4" GI Joe figures.

It's not a bad figure. Decent enough for display but nowhere near the quality of the Sideshow Universal Monster figures.

4-0 out of 5 stars Actually the chained creature from The Bride of Frankenstein
Of the three Classic Monsters Figures that Jakks Pacific has put out in conjunction with this year's blockbuster monster romp "Van Helsing," the Frankenstein figure is the best of the original Universal Monsters (the other two are Dracula and the Wolf Man).Of course to be correct this is the Frankenstein monster immortalized by Boris Karloff since Frankenstein would be the mad scientist played by Colin Clive in the original movie.As part of the festivities you can pick up "Frankenstein: The Legacy Collection on DVD," which has not only the original "Frankenstein" but also "Bride of Frankenstein," "Son of Frankenstein, "Ghost of Frankenstein," and "House of Frankenstein."

This scene actually comes from "Bride of Frankenstein," usually considered to be the best of the Universal Frankenstein movies.After the monster is captured he is put in chains in the dungeon of the local jail.The stone seat with the wooden back is one of the most famous sets in monster movie history.You can also show the creature breaking free from his chains.The figure is articulated at the neck, shoulders, elbows, wrists, waist, hips, knees, and ankles so there are lots of possibilities, although keeping the figure upright can be a concern.

I consider this to be an education monster figure because it should at least inspire some members of a new generation of viewers to go check out at least the original film and its famous sequel as well as maybe even Mary Shelley's classic novel.Even at the start of the 21st-century everyone should know their movie monster heritage along with its literary antecedents and this Classic Monster Figure can certainly help the young folk along in that regard. For those of you who prefer your Universal Monsters in their original black & white, Jakks has come out with a Series 2 collection that does exactly that with these three figures. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Two! Two! Two Figures in One!
Before Jakks Pacific gave us that moderately acceptable Van Helsing toy line, they presented us with three lovely Universal Monsters sets: Dracula, The Wolf Man, and Frankenstein (from The Bride of Frankenstein). I have all three of these, and they're fantastic. Personally, I'm a nut for werewolves, so this has got to be my favorite. This set features a 6 inch figure of Lon Chaney, Jr. as the Wolf Man, from the classic 1941 film. The Wolf Man is provided with a haunting graveyard scene, complete with tombstone, tree, and dug up grave. The scene has a lovely nighttime backdrop with rotating moon phase images, and the figure also comes with a shovel and lantern. But, that's not all! We also get the Wolf Man in his human form of Lawrence Talbot by way of an alternate set of hands, feet, and head that pop right in place as easily as the hairy ones pop right out. Put him together, and you have a figure with a great likeness of Lon Chaney, Jr.!

As with most Wolf Man figures, he can be a little tricky to keep on his feet, but it's not impossible. Sir Larry comes in his trademark green shirt and brown pants, naturally, but for something more accurate to the original version, the new Series 2 playsets are exactly the same, only in black and white! The sets make great shelf display pieces, especially alongside the corresponding DVDs or books of your choice!

4-0 out of 5 stars You get not only the Wolf Man but also cursed Larry Talbot
To quote Sir John Talbot, "Even a man who is pure in heart and says his prayers by night, may become a wolf when the wolfbane blooms and the autumn moon is bright."One of the cultural benefits of the attempt to update the great movie monsters of Dracula, Frankenstein and the Wolf Man for this year's blockbuster monster romp "Van Helsing" is that we are seeing a revival of the original Universal Monsters as well.You can pick up "Wolf Man: The Legacy Collection" on DVD, which has the Universal films "The Wolf Man," "Frankenstein Meets the Wolf Man," "She-Wolf of London," and "Werewolf of London."Then there is this "Classic Monsters Figure: Wolf Man," that turns poor tragic Larry Talbot (Lon Chaney, Jr.) into an action figure.

This figure is produced by Jakks Pacific Inc., which is the same company handling the "Van Helsing" figures, so they are covering both the old and the new.I think there is also an attempt here to provide for the new generation what us old timers remember with the Aurora models of the Universal Monsters.It looks like Larry Talbot is engaging in a bit of grave robbing on the night of a full moon, which explains the shovel and lantern.The 6" figure is wearing the muted green shirt and brown pants Universal always used for the character and you get to switch the head, hands and feet to turn the Wolf Man back into Larry Talbot, whose face does resemble that of Chaney.You just pop the pieces in and out and then pose him as you desire.The figure is articulated at the neck, shoulders, elbows, wrists, waist, hips, knees, and ankles so there are lots of possibilities, although keeping the figure upright is a concern.

How is this figure educational?Because it should inspire a new generation of viewers to go check out the original film and even if there is not a novel behind the Wolf Man as there is with Dracula and Frankenstein, there is still something to be said for knowing our heritage even when the subject is movie monsters.The Frankenstein figure is the best of the bunch, but Wolf Man edges out Dracula to place in this particular monster race.Final Note:This is the Series 1 color figure of the Wolf Man.The Series 2 figures, out in June, will be in black & white for those who prefer their classic Universal monster figures uncolorized. ...

Editorial Review

The last remnant of a 15-million-year-old species, the creaturefrom the black lagoon was neither fish nor human, but a hideouscombination of both. Scales, gills, long webbed claws, and a pulsatingslash for a mouth gave the creature a ghastly quality that catapultedthe movie to instant cult-classic status in 1954. Here, he's forevercaptured in all his heartbreaking grotesqueness: arms raised, heemerges from the primeval swamp with vengeance in his haunted eyes. Hisreptilian companions--a hissing lizard and a venomous-lookingsnake--flank him; in the foreground are the bony remains of a hand.The 29-piece kit's sturdy styrene pieces are more substantial than you'll findin most kits these days; the finished model is about 9 inches tall.It's not complicated, but you'll need care and patience when putting ittogether (and maybe some light sandpaper or an emery board). Paint andcement aren't included, but the instruction sheet indicates colors foreach piece. And if you don't feel like painting the gill-man, he lookspretty convincing in his moss-green unpainted state. --JulieUbben ... Read more

Editorial Review

King Kong blazes a forest trail in this spectacularly improbable hotrod. Kong'slarge torso is crumpled into a car seemingly too small for him (from navel to head hemeasures about 3 inches; the car is only 6 inches long). His gaping mouth with its pointyteeth coordinates well with the spiked hubcaps and evil eye on the hood. The King wearsa crown, and the back of his seat is decorated with a nameplate and a coat of arms. Helooks at once frightening and absurd--his oversized mitts dwarf the tiny steering wheel, asif he hijacked the vehicle from a human. Detailed assembly directions include paintingsuggestions. Be sure to use one of the recommended glues and paints designed for plasticmodeling kits. --Richard Farr ... Read more
