Mine arrived today (#35 / 750). Here are a few photos to whet everyones' appetites. I will try to post a few more later. Obviously, her gown is going to need some wrinkle removal, but otherwise, she is amazing.

RoboDad...I know this is going to sound odd, but here goes. Is there something "rolling" around loose inside the base? The Mummy had some loose material rolling around inside his coffin. Just wondering if BOF has this. SSC says its normal, that its just "waste" from the way they were produced. But it seems odd that a high end/high dollar collectible would have something like this in it. Thanks.

No, I can't hear anything loose inside the base. But, I don't have that problem with either of my Mummies either, (or any of my other PFs, for that matter) so who knows?

To be honest though, even if there were something like that, I would be very concerned. You wouldn't be able to hear it when the piece is on display, and I don't think it really indicates any problem with the piece. Whenever something is cast hollow like that, there is a chance that a small piece might break loose inside.

Thanks for getting back to me. It seems that the Mummy was the most production/quality problem riddled piece of the Universal Monsters PF series. I just wanted to make sure he wasn't starting a new trend. But the Mummy is probably one of my favorites just for the amount of intricate work involved. If I had to pick just one Uni to keep it would have to be the Wolfman though. Thanks again. Now where is that Creature PF announcement???:rotfl

YES! I got mine on Saturday and pulled the base out and heard what sounded like a marble or ball-bearing rolling around in there! If not for the fact she's going to be displayed and untouched, I'd consider sending her back to replace the base but don't want to go through the hassle. Kinda bugs me that her base can double as a tambourine.

I don't want to sound like I'm questioning anyone else's opinions or decisions, but I am genuinely curious about this. Why does it matter if there is a bit of extra polystone floating inside a hollow piece? It doesn't affect the piece in any way, doesn't decrease it's appearance or value, and can only be heard if you pick up the piece and shake it (which is, in and of itself, probably not the best thing to do). Why would you return it for something so trivial?

It doesn't matter in the grand scheme of things, truly. But it caught me off guard to hear something rolling around in the base. This is my first PF piece intended solely for me and was a gift. I'd feel the same way if I was handling an electronic like a laptop or camera and heard something knocking around in there at the slightest movement. It sounded "not quite right." But once she's on display in a new Detolf, it will be moot. It was moot until I saw someone else asking the same question.

yeah I have the same stuff in my Mummy Sarc.
I may be wrong but I blieve the rattling pieces are not from the polystone made pieces. I think I read somewhere the Mummy Sarc is fiberglass? Im not sure.

The SS site gives the Height measurment of the Bride, as
18.25 inches. Is this with or without the base?

This piece is truly impressive. The body is entirely sculpted in bandage, sideshow did not skimp on details here. Lot underneath that dress. The dress comes very wrinkled, but it has nice stitching detail in the back and the bottom hem just goes on and on, which makes the pose so artful. Love this piece.

The only thing that may be off are her thumbs, they look chipped and then painted over. Please tell me this is normal so I don't have to send yet another piece back.

Mine measures about 19 1/2 inches, including the base. I'm not sure where they got the 18.25 figure.

I agree with everything you said. But I'm not exactly sure what you are seeing with the thumbs. On mine, they do look somewhat squared off, but to me it just looks like the bandages are wrapped over and around the ends of her thumbs. They don't look chipped at all.

Thanks Robodad. Mine is probably chipped, it is not squared off. Both thumbs look like the thumb padding had been cut off. I looked for chipped pieces in the box, but could not find any. Probably came off production line like that. Inthia is going to put me on a black list, but I do have the worst luck.

Anyway, for those on the fence... I would get this. Nicely made piece.

I'm not thrilled with the new rough styrofoam packaging. Luckily, it didn't scratch the piece.

She's really awesome. I hope they get it together for a Creature PF soon. I know everyone has their favorite "C" list monster. Mine is Werewolf of London. I would love a Werewolf Of London PF also. But not in the smoker's jacket/robe. I want the old English overcoat, scarf and cabbie hat. On a cobblestone street base.:monkey5

They both have the same body style as far as I know. Frank is surprisingly light; with polystone head, arms and boots (though they are covered in a felt of some sort).

I personally prefer the SSE:

me too.
i'm in doubt about buying the colour version since my Frankenstein is the SSE version, It's much nicer then the colour version.

So Sideshow give us some news

1. tell us that a SSE version will be released
2. or even better, tell us that there will be made a new Frankenstein Monster from Bride of Frankenstein, so I can keep my SSE Frankenstein and buy Bride and her new mate both in colour ...

heres a quote from this thread (http://sideshowcollectors.com/forums/showthread.php?t=16577)


This is good News, But we may have to wait a bit. As I just found this posting over at the Univeral Monster Army Board.

Hi everyone,

I just spoke with my rep at Sideshow regarding an update on when the 1/4 scale
Brides of Frank are expected. There was a supply of them that came through on a
retail level a short time ago, but the remaining shipment of these being
provided at wholesale to dealers is coming in by end of next week. That will
mean retailers will start receiving them by May 11th or thereabouts. I'll email
those off list who "pre-ordered" one as soon as they arrive.

I inquired as to what the next 1/4 scale figure will be, imploring her for it
to be the Creature. She said they will definitely be doing the creature but
without giving too much info she said the next piece will be a companion piece
for the Bride. After a bit more prodding, she said it's going to be another
Frankenstein monster, this one molded after Karloff's monster from the Bride of
Frankenstein. I guess that's logical but I could have lived without ANOTHER 1/4
scale Frank. Bring on the Creatch, I say!
