Horror & Supernatural Characters

Recommended Posts

With Halloween coming up, I'm wondering which characters from the horror and supernatural realm would Marvel Legends collectors like to see get made. I particularly love this genre, and Marvel's horror comics from the 1970s are some of my favorite stories ever published. 

Some of the characters they could make include:

  • Dracula (classic, based on Tomb of Dracula)
  • Dracula (modern)
  • Werewolf by Night (with interchangeable heads, one classic the way Mike Ploog designed, one more animalistic like how Bill Sienkiewicz drew him in Moon Knight)
  • Frankenstein's monster (could be a build-a-figure)
  • Man-Thing (re-release the BAF)
  • Brother Voodoo (classic)
  • Blade ('70s version from Tomb of Dracula)
  • Blade ('90s version)
  • Morbius ('90s version)
  • Daimon Hellstrom, the Son of Satan (I know the chances are slim to none, but hey, we can hope!)
  • Satana (same odds as her brother; interchangeable heads, one with rams horns and one without)
  • N'Kantu, the Living Mummy
  • Simon Garth, the Zombie
  • Lilith, Dracula's Daughter
  • Lilith, Mother of Demons
  • Ghost Rider (Danny Ketch)
  • The Orb
  • Blackheart
  • Gabriel, the Devil Hunter
  • Blackout
  • Scarecrow (also called the Straw Man)

What are your thoughts? Would any of these characters appeal to you as Marvel Legends? Any characters that I didn't include on my list that you think are worth mentioning?

I would love a horror series or two. They could even leak one or two characters out mixed in an Avengers wave ( seems this is where Hasbro likes sticking their oddball inclusions ) and before you know it we could have a nice little stable of Marvel Monsters.

Must haves:

Werewolf by Night ( If Hasbro only gives us one this is my guy )

Zombie, Frankenstein’s Monster and Dracula (ala the ToyBiz box set, something about that set really spoke to me. Still have them all even though their articulation is horrible (especially Dracula) by today’s standards..

Then any on your list. I’d also like to see FrankenCastle, Gargoyle (from Defenders, looks like a classic monster) a new ManWolf, a Man-Spider, and a classic ScareCrow. Maybe even a new classic head for Wendigo.

Any and all monsters welcome

I already mentioned these figures very recently; Hasbro's missing a golden opportunity here. All new sculpts for Tomb of Dracula, Werewolf by Night, Frankenstein's monster (as the BAF? Get it?), Living Mummy , plus Hellstrom and Satanna….helluva (no pun intended) box set for Halloween....

And Marvel should really do a horror tv series for their new service...based on TOD....Mads Mikklesen (or Jason Issacs) as Dracula, make it look as much like Gene Colan's artwork come to life....

I feel like we'll see some of this when the new Blade movie releases.

There you go! Though I'd rather have a Frankenstein BAF.

In any case, it would be cool if Hasbro would make with a few monsters . . . if for no other reason than I could give my WWE Monsters a rest.

I seriously think the best chance of getting these done will be Hasbro "undoing" the characters from the original Toybiz set, not necessarily in a box set, but maybe as a wave. While I'm not a personal fan of the classic monsters in Marvel comics I do think it would be a hit with most fans. I'd still get them because I would basically hold them in the same light as I do the MCU characters. Not a particular taste of mine, but if you give us some new flavor that hasn't been done yet I'm on board.

1. Dracula

2. Werewolf

3. Frankenstein's Monster

4. Zombie (with multiple head sculpts for army building)

5. Living Mummy

6. Manphibian (The Creature)

BAF - Frankencastle

Some other figures I've been wanting with a Horror Vibe , that could work in a wave would be

Chthon (monster form)
Baphomet
Marduk Kurios
Zarathos
Lord Pumpkin
Skinless Man

Even though I’d prefer an all new sculpt, Hasbro could save money by recycling the Jackal’s torso and arms for Werewolf by Night.

You don't think Jackal comes off as a little . . . scrawny for that?

Not if it's based on the Werewolf's initial appearance drawn by Mike Ploog.

If you go with the more bestial looking Werewolf as drawn by Bill Sienkiewicz in Moon Knight, then yes, you'd need a larger body.

Yeah if Hasbro ever did do him as an action figure, you'd best believe theyre not going with scrawny werewolf. Nor are they going with the version that got his ass handed to him by Moon Knight in Moony's first appearance.

Now the reamatch, years (2008?)  later, in Moon Knight's own book (#20), were the Werewolf almost rips him to shreds...I can see them doing that one....

ever since jackal came out i've thought of it repainted  into a werewolf by night, I think it would work well enough,but i'm all for a buffer one

Eh, to me that version looks like any generic furry monster and has no personality, so I would pass on that figure. But if that's what more fans want, I'm sure that's what Hasbro will make.

Actually, that Jakal buck is just a bit larger than the Bucky Cap mold. Especially across the chest. He's really too big for the Jakal figure. At least the version they were trying to make in this instance, but he'd be perfect for a classic No Shirt/Ripped Jeans Wolfman. Of course his legs would have to be all new sculpts or retooled.

Agreed, ever since the entire Underworld franchise (which were good) broke loose pretty much every werewolf in every type of media is portrayed in a similar way. If we're talking classical monsters, the Lon Chaney, Jr look is all time bench mark.

I do see your point. Most likely it would be a cross between the two- they would want to keep the "classical" green pants/jeans they usually have him in. But he likely wouldn't be the scrawny gibbon-looking thing they started out with.

I personally always really liked Werewolf by Night's later 90's look the most, but it's not iconic, nor do I think they would make his figure this way, it would have to be his o.g. design

this is the look I say go with, less scrawny but still classic

I would love a Tomb of Dracula figure along with classic Blade. Hopefully they do something like this in the coming years. With the Blade movie they could have comic based mixed with movie based figures or do a comic based monsters wave and a movie wave. Either way it needs to happen. Hasbro needs to create these Monster figures.

I sure hope these people aren't waiting on a tv or a movie to jump start the production of a figure. How short sighted that would be. There's so much they (Hasbro) could gain from just releasing a monster themed line without waiting for a film....they've done Morbius not very long ago, pretty good job (the underarm wings weren't attached, they had to give him a plug in "cape" but otherwise not bad).

Too bad they didn't release it during October....maybe next year?

    • Not a bad assortment, especially for a movie series. Not great, but not bad. Pretty sure my opinion will improve once we see pix.
    • I scored a blink today for 6$ :D im stoked
    • Ahhh that suuucks! I was going to say, when you cancel your old card, order a new card at the same time, and the purchase should automatically transfer to your new card. That's what happened with me when I lost a credit card and went to cancel it. I was afraid that all the things still outstanding that were tied to my old card would be lost. For example, I was still waiting for a refund to finish processing for an item I had returned. But all those leftover things were transferred to my new card so I didn't lose anything (despite not physically receiving my new card for several days). But it sounds like you had bad timing where Amazon attempted to charge it in the brief window in between your two cards. That sucks. It sounds like you're willing to pay a little bit more for the set since you offered to cover the shipping and also provide bonus stuff. If that's the case, why not just pay a bit more for the scalper prices on ebay? I see some going for an extra $40. That's not ideal, but I'll bet the prices will come down a bit if you wait some more as well. This boxset is brand new so the prices are high now and if you wait until it's more prevalent in the wild, it should come down. Or maybe even Amazon will change course and (re)allow shipping to the UK again after a while. Edit: Now I see that you already did address Ebay as an option. I would still say wait until the prices come down. Or maybe you'll find it for sale locally or on another website that will ship to UK.
    • yes, toy fair at the very earliest. Hell we haven't even gotten a trailer released to the public.
