There are plenty of Universal Monsters toys on the market this year.  At Toys ‘R Us, you will be able to track down the newest selections from Diamond Select: 8″ figures of the Phantom of the Opera, the Invisible Man, and Metaluna Mutant.  Plus, last year’s lineup will soon be available in glorious Black and White. In addition, some collectible retailers are carrying a stylized version of the Frankenstein Monster produced by Mezco.  And, coming in October, you will be able to find the latest Retro figures (Creature from the Black Lagoon and Bride of Frankenstein) from EMCE.

This week on The Big Scare, we will be highlighting where you can track down some cool Halloween merchandise featuring our favorite fiends of Filmland.

This year, you may be able to spot the Universal Studios Monsters in Walmart stores across the nation.  Frankenstein, Creature from the Black Lagoon and the Invisible Man adorn three different T-Shirts available in the clothing section of the superstore.  The Frankenstein shirt, pictured at the right, sports the saying, “Just Call Me Frank.”  While the Creature from the Black Lagoon shirt asks, “Your Lagoon or Mine?”  The Invisible Man shirt reads, “Think of the Options.”

They retail around $5.50.  Not bad, even with the rather silly captions.  Besides, when was the last time the classic monsters were in Walmart?  20 years ago?
