The Dracula Accessory Set comes packaged in a box with beautifully done artwork inspired from the original film, with images of the coffin and the animals on the from and back, and images of Dracula and the coffin on the sides.
The coffin is made of plastic, and painted in a dark grey with a black wash to make it look old and worn, with metallic silver handles that lift on both sides. The top is hinged and can swivel open, allowing NECA’s Universal Monsters Ultimate Dracula figure to fit inside.
The backdrop is inspired from the film, and includes Dracula’s tomb setting, with stone walls, a pillar, and a coffin on the side of the wall. This flips open on both sides, showcasing more stone walls and the coffin.
The animals included are an armadillo, large spider, cricket in coffin, and opossum. Each of these are nicely sculpted and painted to represent what they supposed to look like, and are non-articulated figures. There apparently is inaccurate information about these creatures in this set, stating Dracula can transform into them. That however is not the case, as he can only transform into a bat and nothing has even been stated he can transform into other animals. These were included in this set to enhance the spooky side of the coffin.
Dracula fits inside perfectly and the lid can close without touching him when closed.
Overall, every vampire needs a coffin, and this new accessory set from NECA is an essential piece to the line. Dracula is going to need a place to rest, so make sure to grab this set while you can.
