Universal Monsters 6" Series - The Bride of Frankenstein - Jada Toys 2021

I never would have predicted that Jada Toys would enter the action figure market - and so strongly at that. After five years cornering the diecast market with their stylized Metals figurines, detailed vehicles, and (my favorite) Nano Metalfigs, they surprisingly branched out into articulated plastic. In Fall of 2021 they released their Universal Monsters and General Mills Monsters figures and I was immediately impressed by the quality. Of course, I got my first four figures in the midst of a house move and they promptly got buried in a closet. But I finally unboxed them last week and my original (boxed) assessment still holds true. They're really well made and it's exciting to have another company with product on the shelves (Street Fighter is next!). It's been a while since I've picked up a new Bride of Frankenstein figure so this was especially fun. I know there's a NECA one coming eventually that will probably overshadow the competition, but in the meantime this one is perfect. Let's check her out below!

The only thing I didn't love about this figure was the visibly gaps in her bicep swivels and how her one knee bows in a little.

I love the texture on her sculpted bandages.

She comes with an alternate screaming head, two sets of hands, two metal posts with chains and cloth bandage strips, and a removable white gown.

I'll admit the extra hand sculpts really confused me until I found this photo below. 
Unfortunately the elbow joints don't allow for a perfect recreation of the pose.

Time for some Comparison Pics!

Here she is with the Jada Creature from the Black Lagoon. 
I pretty much buy all Creature figures whenever I see them.
