Dracula Figure From Jada Toys Draws From Stage Play

by Thomas Tuna

Before bringing Dracula to the big screen, Bela Lugosi thrilled audiences with his live performances.

Jada Toys has captured Lugosi’s iconic 1924 stage presentation of the Vampire Lord with a Universal Monsters six-inch scale figure. Check out photos of the collectible–courtesy of Toyark–on this page.

The figure–now available for pre-orders from Big Bad Toy Store–features the authorized likeness of Lugosi, and comes with more than 20 points of articulation, two interchangeable portraits, three sets of hands, a poseable wired fabric cape and an assortment of Dracula posters and handbills.

The Deluxe Dracula–priced at $30–comes in a closed-box “coffin” package with slide-out drawer, and is set for release during the second quarter of the year.

The original Dracula stage play starring Lugosi was written by Hamilton Deane and John L. Balderston, and was adapted from the 1897 novel Dracula by Bram Stoker. The play was in turn adapted by director/producer Tod Browning for the classic 1931 film, with Lugosi reprising his famous role.
