Speaking of the Universal Legacy series, I'm sure you guys have seen the newer ones for Dracula
and The Mummy
. I just found out they'll be releasing one for The Wolf Man
around the time of the remake's release.
Most of them probably aren't worth the double (or actually triple) dip, but it's worth it to have at least one, because they all have a decent Universal horror documentary narrated by Kenneth Branaugh. Depending on the film, some of them have a few more features, too. Some of the Amazon reviews specify which features aren't on previous editions.
Speaking of The Wolf Man
(2009), I recently caught this reveal
of an action figure design. I have to say, if that's how he looks in the movie, Rick Baker did a phenomenal design. Even if everything else about the remake ends up sucking, it'll be a pleasure to see that make-up onscreen.
I bought the original Legacy box-set, which included the Dracula, Frankenstein, and Wolf Man DVD sets, and mini-busts of each of the 3 monsters. One of my best purchases ever.
