After initially unveiling its first foray into collectibles earlier this month, Waxwork Records has unveiled a new Spinature figure based on The Bride of Frankenstein as well as a new vinyl pressing of the iconic’s film soundtrack to celebrate its 85th anniversary. The figure and vinyl can be viewed in the gallery below!
For those who don’t have a turntable, Waxwork has taken this into account for collectors with the ability to proudly display their Spinatures figures virtually anywhere. Any home or office setting is perfect for them, including computer desks, bookshelves, toy and collectible display cases, counter tops and even car dashboards.
The Bride of Frankenstein is a 1935 horror movie directed by James Whale, starring Boris Karloff and Elsa Lanchester, and is the first sequel to the 1931 film Frankenstein. It is widely regarded as one of the greatest sequels in cinematic history. The film has been praised as Whale’s masterpiece. In 1998, it was selected by the Library of Congress for preservation in the United States National Film Registry, having been deemed “culturally, historically or aesthetically significant.”
Sourced from the original master acetates housed in the composer’s archives at Syracuse University and original masters from Universal, the album has been meticulously restored and re-mastered. Working closely with Universal Pictures, this historic release marks the very first time the original film music has been made available on vinyl. The album features new artwork by Phantom City Creative, a 12”x12” booklet including artwork and original scoring session photography, and liner notes by album producer and restoration engineer Mike Matessino.
The first Spinature figure came in the form of Frankenstein from their Universal Horror Line, an official Universal Monster product designed and produced by Waxwork and features the iconic creature from the landmark 1931 horror film with the likeness of legendary actor Boris Karloff. Many more official Universal Monster Spinatures are set to be unveiled as fall progresses, as well as throughout the 2020 holiday season including The Bride of Frankenstein, Dracula, The Mummy, The Phantom of the Opera, The Creature from the Black Lagoon, The Wolfman and The Invisible Man!
The approximately four-inch tall figure retails for $24 and the vinyl retails for $27, both of which can be pre-ordered here!
