Diamond Select Toys makes some of the coolest collectibles out there right now (we have some here at HQ), among them a line of action figures based off of the iconic Universal Monsters. This year, animator Alex Kropinak (MARVEL.com’s “What The…?!” series) has brought the figures (sculpted by Gabriel Marquez, Rudy Garcia and Jean St. Jean) to life in their first-ever animated short using a combination of stop-motion photography and computer graphics. Behold the horror below as the Mummy, the Wolfman, Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde, the Creature from the Black Lagoon, Frankenstein’s Monster, the Bride of Frankenstein, Dracula and the Metaluna Mutant star in TRICK OR TREAT!
Dig that ending? That was Diamond Select’s first-ever original concept action figure, Van Helsing (designed by DST President Chuck Terceira and sculptor Jean St. Jean) showing up to ruin the fun. TRICK OR TREAT was co-written by Kropinak and DST Marketing Supervisor Zach Oat, who previously collaborated on ToyFare magazine’s Twisted ToyFare Theatre.
