1960's Japan Marx CO's Frankenstein w/repro box- Many collectors put this guy in the robot category although personally, I just think he's a cool toy period. This Frankenstein Monster is very rare & boxes of any kind are unheard of. This toy also happens to be in the top 10 all time of battery op's. The hands are typically deteriorated on this toy but not on this excellent C-9 example with a great repro box . Very nice litho on the body & a head that I swear was molded direct from Boris Karlof himself. If you collect monsters (especially universal monsters), character toys or robots then this is a must have in your collection! The actions include walking , bending & lifting via remote control. $1399.99
