Get Bent!

Or “bended”, to be more correct, maybe? It doesn’t sound as powerful, though, as the header of an article. “Get bended.” No, it lacks a little of the ring, the ironic forcefulness. But since we’re talking about bendable action figures—you know, action figures with wire skeletons covered with rubber flesh that you can pose any sorta way you want (just don’t do it too too much or else the wire inside will break and you’ll have a figure with a limp appendage; yes, I might have done that to a figure or two in my youth)—it is a better fit.

The Noble Collection, more known for things like swords and chessboards, has a new line of bendable figures coming out. This toyline, called “BendyFigs”, features the original Universal Monsters Dracula, the Bride of Frankenstein, Frankenstein’s Monster, and the Creature from the Black Lagoon. Notice one of the ones missing? There’s no Wolfman! What the unholy hell is up with that?! How could you be offering a line of figures based on the Universal Monsters and not have a figure of the Wolfman?! I sure hope they correct this oversight post haste!

The figures are 7-inches tall and each comes with its own base for posing. I think the one of the Creature is the most impressive, visually. But the Wolfman probably *would* have been the most striking, if they’d bothered to make one.
