NECA'S "Fiend" / Crimson Ghost Action Figures

Fans of the old serial from 1946 (and also fans of The Misfits) might be interested in this new posable 8" action figure / doll from Neca of the iconic skull-faced villain The Crimson Ghost. Comes in two versions, the black and white "Fiend" style like I bought (see my pix below), and also a "Crimson" caped version-- click HERE to see it! It's a cool figure, but I have to say everything about the production feels a bit bare bones for the price, and combined with the sloppy paint job on the teeth, plus the ho hum backing board (front and back) design, I almost passed on it. It comes with an extra hand to hold the candelabra, --but unfortunately no death ray! Still a must have for a fan like me, he's super fun to pose and menace your other toys with!

You the new Pixel Dan...
I'm not familiar with the shows you mention, but the figure is kinda cool.
I'm more into vintage 70's-80's figures, often go to flea market just for the thrill of it (found a Blackstar's Warlock for 4 euros and a baseball Smurfette for 50 cents last year).

Check YouTube for Crimson Ghost Serial episodes, there's also a version with all the eps edited together into one film. If you're unfamiliar with the band The Misfits check YouTube as well

Oh the Danzig (ex) band.
Stupid me didn't make the connection with the figure. Thought you were talking about a tv show.

Welp, so much for legendary, iconic band mascots! ;)

You mean... Eddie from Iron Maiden?
Oh no no! ;) Sorry, my brother was the family's punk - metallaro.
I was more into new wave, but loved Judas Priest.
