It looks like work is progressing on Moebius's deluxe Dracula kit and it looks great. He is holding the victim and there is more to the base on the right side with a column added. Finally he added a bat coming off the wall just like I had done with my original build using an Aurora monster customizing kit bat. I'll definitely be buying this one. Frank also posted some updates on the Moebius Facebook page for the year. Here is the Drac picture.

I wonder if there will be a way to upgrade your existing Broadway Bela kit and add these additions to it or if you will have to buy a whole new deluxe kit?

Either way...this looks terrific!:thumbsup:

I can't imagine them selling just the additional parts, which is the whole notion behind having the regular and deluxe kit in the first place.

Is it just me or are we all tempted to buy both versions.After all,the pose for both are different enough,and the position of the victim kind of demands the second Dracula pose,unless you really want to make serious alterations to the first one.Of course,if you place the victim in a horizontal position on a slab,that might be different.Either way,like the man says,it's doubtful that they will sell the victim seperately.I can see subtituting the victim and put her with the first Dracula,as I have indicated.The Deluxe Dracula could very well be staring at an unseen enemy,like Van Helsing,if you choose the remove the victim.Of course,a resin Van Helsing in the same scale could be sold as an after market addition.The guys from Moebius are very clever.This could very well mean a double whammy for them.:thumbsup:

I bought the initial kit and have thought about parting it out... the base would be great with the Aurora Dracula or the MPC Barnabas Collins. With some work the Deluxe base (also the Ghost of Castle Mare base) might be good Phantom bases.

I'm not a fan of Lugosi's Dracula but even I'm tempted to buy that. Fantastic lifelike sculpt.:thumbsup:

Shame the new Creature isn't up to that standard.

Oh great! I just got the origianl in yesterday and if I had known this I would have waited!!!! This one is much more interesting than the first one.

This is the first I've heard of this kit. Crap!

Has anyone caught the fact that the womans hair should be hanging straight down? Not at an angle?

I think the kit is supposed to represent the moment she succumbs to his power so it's like a snapshot of her at the point where her body goes limp...from that perspective her hair would be in the process of sweeping back.

That is the impression I get when I look at it, which makes the sculpt that much more amazing and dynamic!! :thumbsup:

It's a beauty anyway.Even if some of you bought the first one,it's not a waste,as both figures can represent a different moment.I didn't see anyone scratch build a Dracula coffin yet.An extension of this kit with a bigger diorama with coffin would be great.Does anyone have a picture of Dracula's coffin.:)

Any precision on the release date of this kit.:cool:
As Frank posted yesterday on Facebook, it is getting closer and he wished it could go faster. If you want the info straight from him, join Moebius on Facebook, then you could ask him questions directly!! :thumbsup:
