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.

Great Prop-looks good in a haunted maze

 
4.0

Pros

  • Durable
  • Attractive Design

Cons

  • Bad face sculpt
  • Fragile bolts in neck

Best Uses

  • Living Room
  • Outdoors

Comments:

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:

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!!

Every Laboratory MUST have one!!

 
5.0

Pros

  • BIG Understated Scary

Cons

  • None - very cool

Best Uses

  • Laboratory table

Comments:

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 would be a better, more appropriate Dr. My Shivers is broken anyway - ready for a replacement Spirit!!!

Comments:

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!

BLACK EYE SHADOW!

 
4.0

Pros

Cons

Best Uses

Comments:

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 would hurt the latex? face, so I found some black (powder) eye shadow and dusted it around it's eyes. Still not Boris K, but definitely a big improvement. Thought this may help some of you in case you hadn't thought of it.

Very Realistic and Big

 
5.0

Pros

  • Big
  • Attractive Design

Cons

Best Uses

  • Living Room
  • Office

Comments:

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 horizontal position so be sure to plan that into where you put it. Not only is it tall, but also the "arms width" needs to be taken into consideration. We had to move this from where we originally wanted to put it because we failed to consider the arms when activated. Not a complaint but a pleasant surprise.

Disappointing Frank

 
1.0

Pros

  • Unique
  • It's a licensed Frank

Cons

  • Delicate
  • Low Quality
  • Terrible likeness

Best Uses

  • Dumpster ornament

Comments:

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 astronomical, all things considered.

Top of the Line!

 
5.0

Pros

  • Unique
  • Durable
  • Bright
  • Attractive Design

Cons

Best Uses

  • Living Room

Comments:

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, their more high-end props continue to carry on their reputation, if only slightly, as the best in the business: as in having the most durable props, if nothing else. All in all, although Frank comes with a hefty price tag, always keep in mind that you get what you pay for. Big price, but extremely heavy-duty in constrcution, especially compared to these cheap piece-of-plastic props that Spirit sells nowadays.

Best Uses

  • Porch

Comments:

My favorite time of year is Halloween. I continue to add to my collection each year. This is my third animated prop but, for sure the best!!! "Frank" looks absolutely perfect on our porch. The neighborhood children have all come by to meet him and love him....a few toddlers were tenative. "Frank" is nicely padded making his strength more believable...his coloring makes him stand out nicely from the street...we enjoy how both his eyes and neck bolts light up.... Definitely happy with our newest addition....
