Werewolf Mikey, in my opinion, is the weakest of the Monsters + Mutants line. It's still fine considering the price point, but it's execution is a bit uninspired.
Mikey as a Werewolf is a good choice, and it utilizes the "Teenage Werewolf" theme as seen in Teen Wolf and I Was a Teenage Werewolf. It's the logical choice here, and the sculpt has some nice touches.
As with all the other Monsters + Mutants figures, Werewolf Mikey shares the same backing card of all the other releases, with only the card in front being unique.
The figure has the sculpted letterman jacket, with the back even having "Wolfpack" molded in. While the front of the jacket has painted detail, the back does not, which seems like an omission.
Another weird paint omission is that Mikey's bandanna is not painted around the back of the head.
Accessories include a rubbery set of bone nunchaku and a slice of pizza.
I'm not sure, but are those organs sculpted into the slice of pizza?
Maybe I am just weird but I have never been into the whole werewolf thing. Combine that with the lack of paint apps on the figure and that makes Werewolf Mikey my least-favorite of this line. They are all pretty great, this one is just the least-great.
