Pre-order Mondo Universal Monsters Creature From the Black Lagoon 1/6 Scale Figure from BBTS (link HERE)
Mondo makes collectible creature history with the (possibly?) first-ever Creature from the Black Lagoon 1/6 scale figure!
Meticulously crafted with 2 years in the making, this swamp-rompin’ figure has 16 points of articulation, stands 12 inches tall, comes with interchangeable swimming hands and feet, 2 different switch-out heads, and a bonus fossil hand.

Diamond Select Toys has taken quite a few stabs at the Universal Studios classic movie monsters, albeit with somewhat mixed results. Early entries often took a more statuesque approach, focusing on the sculpt rather than the articulation, a decision that didn’t appeal to some fans who wanted a bit more from their figures.
The company’s offerings expanded over the next few years to include things like vinyl bank busts and retro styled figures (not to mention Minimates), in addition to improving the articulation on the 7-inch Select action figures. DST had made some tremendous steps, but it had yet to go really crazy. Yes, the collectibles were certainly good, but were the best out there?
