NECA is expanding their Universal Monsters line with some new accessory sets, including The Mummy, Frankenstein and Dracula all based on the classic films. The Mummy is inspired from the classic 1932 film and starred Boris Karloff as he starred in this iconic role.
In the film, a team of archaeologists led by Sir Joseph Whemple uncover the mummified remains of the ancient Egyptian prince Imhotep, along with the legendary scroll of Thoth. When one of them reads the scroll aloud, Imhotep returns to life, and escapes. Several years have passed, and he has taken on the guise of a wealthy man, as he searches Egypt for his lost love, who he believes has been reincarnated as the lovely Helen Grosvenor.
Thank you to NECA Toys for sending along their Universal Monsters The Mummy Accessory Pack for review.
Availability: Q4, 2022
The Mummy Accessory Pack is packaged in a box with beautifully done artwork inspired from the film, with images of the sarcophagus, chest and Mummy on the cover, sides and back. The sarcophagus and chest are packaged in a plastic tray for safe keeping, and behind that is a folded up Egyptian backdrop, with Egyptian artwork to use for photography.
The sarcophagus measures over 9″ tall and features a removable lid with deco inspired from the film, along with a printed pattern in blue and red. The sarcophagus is also painted in a metallic gold, and features a Pharaoh head on top with nicely done facial details and overall likeness. The sarcophagus also has a black wash over it indicating its age. Inside, there are some Egyptian writing all the way around, which is a nice touch.
The Mummy figure can fit inside (sold separately), with some room to move around a little as you can move his head, arms and legs inside, but also fits just perfectly as his body is touching the sides.
The chest is also painted in metallic gold, with a black wash and an opening lid. The chest has some carvings and details on all sides. The pattern is identical on all sides, and fits in nicely with the sarcophagus.
Overall, the Mummy Accessory Pack is a great offering from NECA and fits in perfectly with their Universal Monsters The Mummy and other figures. This is an essential piece for The Mummy and fits in with this line. Make sure to grab this, Frankenstein’s and Dracula’s Accessory Packs as well.
