NECA has been honoring the classic Universal Monsters with incredible action figures in recent years, and they’re giving even more love to classic horror with two new upcoming toys.
Previewed at San Diego Comic-Con this week, NECA will soon be releasing action figures based on the 1922 classic Nosferatu and the lost 1927 film London After Midnight.
The Ultimate Count Orlok and Ultimate Professor Burke action figures are listed as “Coming Soon,” and our friends over at Toyark have shared some photos from SDCC today.
Count Orlok was played by Max Schreck in Nosferatu, an unofficial adaptation of Dracula, while Lon Chaney played Professor Burke in the infamous London After Midnight.
Wikipedia explains the history of London After Midnight, “The last known copy of the film was destroyed in the 1965 MGM vault fire, along with hundreds of other rare early films, making it one of the most sought-after lost silent films.” Only still images of the movie are in circulation at this time, and NECA’s action figure is based on those available materials.
