Target have updated their Collector’s spot section with our first images of the new Transformers Collaborative Draculus Mash-up as well as official Kingdom Road Rage pre-orders.
We finally have our first look at this terrific Universal Monsters x Transformers crossover. As it was rumored in our boards, this figure is a retool/redeco of Titans Return Mindwipe with a black cape for the robot and bat mode. We also have a look a the packaging which looks like an old VHS tape as it was mentioned in Draculu’s official description. Pre-orders
should go live today in a few hours are live now on this link together with Kingdom Road Rage listing.
Update: Official pics and pre-order live via Hasbro Pulse for $32.00 and expected for release in November 28, 2021
See all the mirrored imaged attached to this news post after the break and then sound off on the 2005 Boards!
Back in the '80s, like Dracula, there was concept art for a Creature from the Black Lagoon: Creature from the Black Lagoon – Transformers Wiki
I'd LOVE a Creature, but the only other uses for a fish mold (that I could find anyway) are Injector or maybe Sharp Edge.
That's cool. Of all the crossovers, Maverick was the most divisive in the fandom imo.
I love Top Gun but that particular fig just fell short for me unfortunately. Jurassic Park was a stretch too but I got a really good price on it.
No TopGun: MaverickxTF?
I was always hoping they would, but looking doubtful for now. Unless something has come up that I missed. They released Draculus to coincide with the 90th anniversary of 1931's Dracula. Which would have been Frankenstein's anniversary too. Seems like a missed opportunity. These crossovers seem to be a one and done deal. (I'm not counting the GBxOptimus since he wasn't an original character or had retooling like the others, he was just a repaint)
Would have been great to have had TR Hardhead as Frankenstein's Monster, TR Skullcruncher as the Gill Man, TR Weirdwolf as The Wolf Man, TR Highbrow as The Invisible Man, & TR Brainstorm as the Bride of Frankenstein. That would of been my picks anyway.
I have fallen down the mashup rabbit hole. Got this, ecto, JP, & BttF. Wondering if there are plans to continue with the Universal monsters.
It's intended to be, but you don't have to open the other side. Just slide in any material, thin enough to fit. On my box, after I've taken everything out, I folded in the flaps.
I feel like an idiot for not thinking of this.
So, FedEx delivered this today.
To the opposite street.
Moronic driver can't tell East from West.
Did that with my Balvintron too.
Hasbro needs a new carrier.
That's how I opened mine.
This is correct
IIRC, it's folded in a way that you can't pull it all the way out that way. I think it was said that you have to open the other side of the box to actually slide it out. I can't confirm personally.
Hey folks, I'm terrified to destroy the box. Does the VHS tape slide all the way out, or only partially? Because otherwise I can't figure out how to get the figure out of the box.
Picked this guy up tonight because of the discount…bring a bottle of future for this one, the mold is getting a little long in the tooth
I’m pretty sure Draculus sold successfully, so they’re likely gonna happen soon!
But still say he is a waaay better fit. Given the co-development though, would it really be that much extra to use that mold?
Would be funny if they packaged him with a re-painted Arcee (because the Kingdom Arcee mold is inescapable) to stand in for Julie Adams.
That's a Takara mold though, while these X-overs are predominantly Hasbro driven. The additional cost of the Skalor mold would drive up what would also already be a marked up figure because of the license.
It's not just Draculus. Target appears to be putting a bunch of exclusives on sale this week. Road Rage, and Marvel Legends Thena are also marked down to name a few.
I see. Yeah, that does seem to fit better.
Makes sense since they recently used those molds. Although now that I'm looking at Skalor it would seem to be a better fit for Gillman.
They had some on the shelves at my local ToysRUs. 72.99 (Can) for a Mindwipe retool though. Pass.
Wow, I feel like Pulse is the one that needs to price-check.
The initial leak was that Mindwipe, Skullcruncher, and Wolfwire would be retooled in to Drac, Gillman, and Wolfman.
