FRANKENSTEIN’s Monster 2000 Boris Karloff 1:6 Action Figure Sideshow Universal Monster

“Look! It’s moving. It’s alive. It’s alive, IT’S ALIVE!” Hard to believe that Mary Shelley wrote her masterpiece about the human condition 200 years ago. It still stands as a fresh and thought provoking tome about life… and a life beyond the tomb. This is a fabulous 1/6th scale 12 inch (30 cm) action figure of Frankenstein’s incredible monster from Sideshow Toys’ classic Universal Studios Monsters figure series

This character appeared in the classic movie Frankenstein released in 1931. This iconic horror film follows the obsessed scientist Dr. Henry Frankenstein (Colin Clive) as he attempts to create life by assembling a creature from body parts of the dead. Aided by his loyal misshapen assistant, Fritz (Dwight Frye), Frankenstein succeeds in animating his monster (Boris Karloff), but confused and traumatized it escapes into the countryside and begins to wreak havoc

DAN DARE PLANET GUN 1950s Space Eagle Comics Merit Vintage Sci Fi

This crazy 1950s issue of the Dan Dare Planet Gun inspired by jet fighter curves crossed with the colours of a cricket pitch, the ball and scoreboard numbers. Vintage futuristic plastic space gun complete with set of three deadly spinner projectiles. Box has colourful action packed comic book art showing whirling weapon wielding, spacesuit-clad Dare watched by technologically advanced reptilian aliens via view screen. It’s not made clear how the spinning projectiles are meant to work but it’s odds-on that the vortex caused by spinning so hard literally creates a mini dimensional fabric rip (or FabRip… as most people call them these days). Clearly if that happened in close proximity to an enemy alien the result could be very messy. Indeed, operators should remember to mind their fingers near the weapon’s moving parts

You don’t even need batteries to operate this baby! It runs on an ingenious spring system (that could probably actually really replace nuclear power as an energy source) and pure nostalgia  

Set includes:

  • Hard plastic spring-loaded “Planet Gun” 4.5″ long
  • Three plastic rotors/saucers 3″ diameter
  • Illustrated box 7″ x 11″ x 2.25 inch deep

There appear to have been three combinations of colours for the various parts. This is a very sporty black green and red version carrying the wording

  • Planet Gun
  • Dan Dare name and logo (a circle with a vertical oval inside)
  • Inter-Planet Space Fleet
  • A Merit Toy

Comes with advice note warning only to use this gun when you are actually in space (which sort of supports my whole fabric ripping hole theory):

 

CAUTION
When winding do not exceed 8 CLICKS
Do not overwind stupid

Do not fire point blank at any target but fire only into space!

 

To achieve best results apply a few drops of light oil to the spinner spindle and a touch of Vaseline around the slots on the underside of the spinner hub

 

Made way back in 1950s England by J & L Randall Ltd/ Merit with permission of Eagle Comics the publisher of British Dan Dare sci-fi stories. What does Wikipedia say about Dan’s spacey history?
