While Burger King got some of the finest Universal Monsters of the decade, Jack in the Box did not. I couldn't even find much information online about this Bride of Frankenstein, and while I remember buying it now I completely forgot it existed until recently. Standing about 3 3/4-inches tall with jointed arms and a screaming sound chip, this toy is a bit more of what you might expect from the era - bigger, sure. Louder, yes. But it's not impressive.
This is an oddity - the sculpting is pretty wonky with what may well be the worst head sculpt I've ever seen, unless it was modeled after an older gentleman. The deep lines and big eyes look monster-iffic with pretty good make-up deco, but can anyone even tell she has green paint on her eyelids unless they get in close? I doubt it. It's so strange that the paint is clean and on-point, especially given the small details. The hair is similarly well-painted. But the neck doesn't turn, and that head sculpt is just not a winner.
The jointed arms swing forward, but the core of the toy is a generic woman screaming embedded in the sound chip somehow. It's magical, but after almost two decades the battery is weakening and the screech becomes considerably more inhuman. The body doesn't flow much, but there's a speaker embedded in the back.
I'd say "it's OK" but it's not really great. There were far better toys during this era, and even better ones years before. Funko's ReAction Bride of Frankenstein [FOTD #1,042] was a lot better, and I hope Super7 does a new version of her to go along with their other new resculpts of these guys. They're cool, they're nice when done well, and there's room to do something even better if someone decided to try for that.
