Frankenstein Life-Size Bust

To celebrate the 75th anniversary of the movie Frankenstein, Sideshow has created a Life-Size Bust of Boris Karloff as the monster. The bust is 21 inches in height, in full color recreating the Jack Pierce make-up, and uses high-quality fabrics to reproduce part of the original classic costume. Each piece is hand cast in fiberglass and mounted on a decorative base which is then individually hand-numbered.

This Universal Classic Monsters Series Life-Size Bust would be an excellent addition for any serious collector of Horror memorabilia.
