Ok, I'm a pretty critical person when it comes to Toddy Boy. But this announcement seriously has me excited for a McFarlane figure for the first time in ages. I hope that they can get most of the actor likenesses and that we'll see a lot of the most requested characters from the line. A good Dracula figure in the red armor from the start of the film especially. Unfortunatly given Anthony Hopkins reluctance to license his likeness, I doubt we'll see a Van Helsing. But as long the Knight Dracula, Butt Hair Dracula, and tons more, I'll be happy. The wait til late 2005 is gonna hurt though.

Blood-suckers and night stalkers, the line forms here: McFarlane Toys has acquired the action figure licensing rights to the 1992 Oscar award-winning horror film Bram Stoker's Dracula. This is the first action figure license granted by Sony Consumer Products for Francis Ford Coppola's masterpiece.
Directed by Coppola and based on Bram Stoker's classic Dracula novel, the film has an all-star cast including Gary Oldman, Keanu Reeves, Winona Ryder and Anthony Hopkins. The film has grossed an estimated $200 million worldwide and won several awards, including an Oscar.
Fans can expect the artists at McFarlane Toys to capture the details and magic from the popular movie in collectible three-dimensional glory. The new figures from Bram Stoker's Dracula are scheduled to be released in late 2005.
