Mondo Unleashes Universal Monsters with Figures & More of the Supreme Beings of Screen Screams

Few cinematic characters are so iconic that they’ve transcended film to become part of our global reality. But since a certain phantom first visited an opera nearly a century ago, the Universal Monsters have clawed their way to the top as some of the most recognizable and reprehensible faces in the world. For generations, Dracula, Frankenstein and his bride, the Wolf Man, the Mummy, and the Creature from the Black Lagoon have chilled the spines of literally billions. And this Halloween, Mondo is celebrating their horror legacy with our biggest, boldest, bloodiest tribute yet. Go visit Mondo’s website for ordering information and inventory stock.

UNIVERSAL MONSTERS Puzzles
Beloved poster artist Francesco Francavilla keeps the Universal Monsters close to his heart, and was pleased to have some of his classic designs transformed into 1000-piece puzzles. Says the artist himself, “I was so excited when Mondo asked me to turn my Universal Monsters screenprints into puzzles. After seeing how cool and entertaining the Jurassic Park one turned out, I jumped at the prospect to have more puzzle fun with my posters.”

“For FRANKENSTEIN, it took me quite a bit to draw the lab and the cavernous walls of the castle. I think those areas will be lot of fun to fit together and see the Monster come alive!

“THE WOLF MAN must be the poster where I’ve drawn more hair (fur?) than anywhere else. It’s gonna be thrilling to see the iconic Lon Chaney Jr makeup coming together against the full moon in the background. AROOOOOO!”

“THE CREATURE FROM THE BLACK LAGOON is one of my fave designs in movies ever — I’ve lost count of how many times I’ve drawn this guy. For the puzzle, we decided to go with my REVENGE OF THE CREATURE poster because I thought the design and intricacy of the art would be really fun and challenging.”
