Comments about :

This is a great addition to my haunted house. His arms don't raise all the way up, but you get the idea. He is tall like I imagine the monster would be.

BOTTOM LINE Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

BEST USES

Comments about :

As a collector of animatronics, I must say that this one is pretty good. My only real problem is that the face sculpt isn't that great and it doesn't look too much like Karloff. Other then that it's great-Well built, very tall, and a classic monster.

Comments about :

ITS ALIVE! he is HUGE. Got him the day after halloween, and I love him. He will be great in my mad scientist lab. He durable, and really tall. He is different because he is not from a recent horror movie like Friday the 13th. Get him before it's too late!!

Comments about :

We modified the old Gemmy Monster, even put a Frankenstein "Cap" on him, but he just did not look the part. This guy looks fantastic in our Home Haunt Laboratory. We put a green LED spot on his face,the sound of a storm and lightning on the semi-clear roof of the lab. The only remaining improvement…

Comments about :

This product was everything I imagined and more. Very high-quality, great sound effects, lights, the whole shebang. To my surprise, it even has springs for legs so it can shrink down for easy storage. If it was cheaper, I'd have two - one indoors and one out to scare unsolicited visitors. Love it!

Comments about :

Overall this is a decent prop. I have to agree with one reviewer regarding the likeness (or lack of) to the Boris Karloff monster. But, I did notice one thing that helped improve "it". The eyes were weak looking, and noticed there wasn't enough black circles. I didn't want to use anything that…

Comments about :

This looked great when we saw it in the Spirit store, but it even looked better when we put it in our home, the size really shows up well. If you use external lighting this looks best with a green light. Due to the lights in the bolts you could get away with it in the dark. Arm raise up to a…

  • Dumpster ornament
Comments about :

While it is nice to see a retro Frankenstein anything, every thing about the figure is disappointing. It is a licensed Universal/Boris Karloff piece, yet looks absolutely nothing like Karloff. It is cheaply made and flimsy. Seems prone to quick breakage. The [$] price tag is absolutely…

Comments about :

This is the best Spirit prop for 2011 for a variety of reasons: he is quite imposing at 6.5 ft. tall, a height that few props can even come close to. His smooth movements and quiet motor make him realistic beyond belief. Although Gemmy, the manufacturer of this prop, may be delcining in selection,…
