In a lab hidden inside a medieval tower near a village on the Bavaria Alps, a monstrous giant revived through the science of manipulating the forces of nature, gets free from his captivity in the dungeon, and initiates the discovery of a world so unprepared for his existence as he is for the world itself. With a grotesque appearance, gifted with monumental strength and limited intellect, his most primitive survival instincts make him a lethal threat to the men that fear him and seek his destruction. Seen as an offense to the laws of nature and creation, in a primitive society that is not prepared for his existence, he was born and quickly seen as a monster, known for the name of his creator. Derivative from one of the most classic horror movies by Universal Studios, Iron Studios bring the statue “Frankenstein´s Monster – Universal Monsters – Art Scale 1/10”, over a pedestal of the rustic wooden floor of the medieval tower where he was created.
Iron Studios also bring the Deluxe version, following the pattern from their collection of the greatest classics of horror by Universal Studios, with the statue “Frankenstein´s Monster Deluxe – Universal Monsters – Art Scale 1/10”, with the infamous monster in a diorama pedestal next to a set of equipment and electrical devices that brought him to life, and next to the heavy and destroyed wooden door from the dungeon, over the rustic and old wooden floor.
Created in the most terrible nightmares from the creative mind of the young English novelist Mary Shelley, introduced to the world in 1818, in the gothic novel Frankenstein; or The Modern Prometheus, the book is considered one of the first examples of science fiction. Adapted from a theater play from the 1920s, the movie Frankenstein by Universal Pictures from 1931 tells the story of Dr. Henry Frankenstein, an obsessed scientist that digs up and steals corpses with his assistant, a hunchback named Fritz, with the idea of creating a man from different parts of these bodies and giving life to him through electrical devices. Henry sends Fritz to steal a healthy brain, the last organ he needs for his creation, but Fritz accidentally damages it, and delivers a corrupted brain. The scientist is able to achieve his goal, drawing the force of lightning from a storm, and the resulting creature, also known as Frankenstein’s Monster, comes to life. Played by legendary actor Boris Karloff, with makeup done by Jack Pierce, the monster’s image presented in this production remains to this day eternalized and praised in the collective consciousness. An acclaimed success by critics and the public alike, the movie brought forth a series of sequences and spin-offs, and had a significant impact on pop culture, with the image of a “crazy” maniac scientist with a subservient hunchback assistant, many times referred to as Igor.
Another pop icon inspired by horror movies, immortalized in the cinematic productions by Universal, got his statue from Iron Studios. Also, check out the Deluxe and regular statues of the other monsters from this classic franchise like The Wolf Man, The Mummy, and Dracula. Revealed firsthand on the monthly show Inside Iron Studios Day of October on YouTube, celebrating Halloween, the statue is already available for Pre-Order. Soon, other statues from the Universal Monsters line by Iron Studios.
