The Phantom/Mask of the Red Death
Review by NekroDave
One of the more memorable moments in the 1925 silent movie classic "The
Phantom Of the Opera" is when Erik (aka The Phantom) makes his
the costume ball dressed as the Red Death. It is this scene that is
here in another of Sideshow Toys' line of 8" Universal Monster figures.
figure looks great, but features only six points of articulation. This
not be a big problem except that the toy is molded in a pose that is
leaning forward and there is no way to counteract it. As a result, it
prone to falling over. Mine has fallen off the shelf more times than I
to count. However, it has never broken so at least it is durable.
excellent sculpt and paint you would expect from this line is here and
toy has several accessories. These include two heads, one with the
mask and another with Erik's misshapen face. There is also a nice staff
features a snake curled around it with a skull in it's mouth at the
cloth cape that comes wiith the toy looks nice, but it can be a pain to
attach the two connecting pieces at the collar. Rounding out the
a hat with a feather attached. Naturally, there is a base to stand the
on as well.
