    The prince of the night has one heck of a cool box 20210922_144048.jpg 20210922_144112.jpg 20210922_144100.jpg 20210922_144118.jpg 20210922_150006.jpg 20210922_145158.jpg
    A re tool repaint of mindwipe who comes with his gun/shield and a cape to become Dracula . You have the same pose ability of that old mold minus a headmaster the head is on a ball joint. New chest and cool hands(sadly cant spin)
    20210922_152155.jpg got to say he has personality in spades or bats thanks to his new head, hands , dapper tux and cape

    I do not have any other versions of this mold besides a cool DJ Customs Terrorsaur 20210923_182741(1).jpg So cant really really compare the 2

    This crossover is refreshing honesty even with it being a older mold it works perfect as Dracula. I really like this one but this will be a decisive one in the crossover line (like usual). I hope they do more monsters I really do !

    He will always be Gigatron Jr. (RiD Megatron) in my mind. The head and bat mode sell that hard (also goes to show how well Gigatron pulls off the vampire vibe).

    As for the review, you missed an opportunity to make a B&W film grain shot. Extra points if he's rising out of the coffin.

    Any chance of a pic of the back of the bat?

    Where does the robot head go in alt mode?

    I know the Titanmaster is gone but is the socket still there?

    I'm holding out hope that they'll use the Weirdwolf mold for a werewolf companion for this guy. But I guess robot mode would just be a *regular* guy. So, IDK.

    The socket is no longer there the head just sits on the bats butt. Have not yet put the cape on the bat yet seems silly if you ask me but it would definitely help hide it.
    The clear red part still opens up to hold a titan master if you wanted 20210924_083311.jpg

    When he was first announced, I thought about passing. But that new headsculpt and remolding with a regular head are really growing on me but what really took it to the next level is that cape! I love the fact it's a cloth cape too and not some molded plastic one.

    I can't wait to get this figure!

    So thinking about it here is how I think they'll do more monsters, should they continue the crossover:

    -Wolfman: Weirdwolf. This is just obviousl.

    -Frankenstein's Monster: Some sort of vehicle retool to make it look like either a carriage or a hearse. Perhaps a Lockdown figure.

    -The Mummy: One of the deluxe Incesticons that is supposed to come out in 2022.

    -Gillman: This is a hard one as it should be an aquatic form. Maybe Krok? Doesn't feel right though.

    I'd LOVE to see a Frankenstein's Monster using Mainframe's mold, but instead of the Ark computer, it's the giant wall of electronics from Dr. Frankenstein's lab, complete with oscilloscopes, dials, and old-timey levers sculpted in.

    Tho to be honest, the most appropriate retool would be bits from like three or four different Modulators and Weaponizers, with a Fossilizer or two thrown in.

    Okay, that is a great idea to have it be a weaponizer/modulator mold. Especially if you could figure out how to make a pitchfork and a torch out of it

    Digital sculpt, more probably. Not the same physical molds since the toys have different wrist connections.

    Titans Return Skullcruncher or maybe Rippersnapper/one of the Seacons.

    The Mummy is a tough one... Kingdom Scorponok, with the bot mode parts that are mostly hidden in alt mode being the heaviest changes. But it wouldn't fit well with Dracula/Wolfmans/Gills theoretical look.

    Frankenstein's Monster is actually the toughest. I'd be looking towards a Voyager size figure and have this odd compulsion to Siege Soundwave retooled, with his alt mode being a total Universal Horror laboratory "slab" that Frank was created on. Earthrise Grapple could also work towards this idea.

    The fly would be a easy kingdom waspinator repaint/retool as well
