Review by NekroDave
If you've ever wanted to have an action figure of a guy in his pajamas smoking a cigarette, then this is the toy for you. All kidding aside, this is another winner in Sideshow's line of 8" monster figures.
There probably isn't a whole lot that's scary about a man who's invisible, but it's the mystery of what was hidden beneath his bandages that created such tension in the early scenes of the 1933 classic and that is what Sideshow decided to recreate here. But if you just must know what is being hidden, the toy also comes with a second head, one that is sculpted in the likeness of Claude Rains, but molded in see through plastic.
There are only 8 points of articulation on this one, with none below the waist. The length of the characters robe prohibits any movement there. Two books and a display stand round out the accessories.
There's not a whole lot of "action" with this figure, but it sure does look neat.
