Hard to choose between my Aurora Tribute Dracula, Janus' Lon Chaney Man of a Thousand Faces, or Forbidden Zone's Son of Frankenstein

Seems to be a hard one to answer for most folks; I'm the same, but it's probably Mr Spock if you can count it with its three-headed snake as a monster kit. If not, probably MOTM Creature.

I have 1 favourite styrene and 1 favourite resin.
Styrene- the Aurora Vampire. Not true horror I know- she's a humourous kit. She's still a vampire though, and I love her to bits!! She's a cutie.

Resin- Ramblin' Rose from German Garage. No gore, but the most unsettling zombie kit you'll ever see. Once beautiful, as some muscles have broken down and others tightened and dried, she's been pulled into a twisted, contorted corpse. Truly disturbing....

Styrene: Aurora's The Forgotten Prisoner of Castel-Maré; a sentimental favorite since this is the first kit I ever built back-in-the-day. A close second goes to Aurora's Frankenstein kit, also for sentimental reasons.

Resin: My new favorite is the recent "Monster" kit sculpted by Adam Dougherty.

Vinyl: Billiken Frankenstein; arguably the best sculpt of the Monster in that scale.

I have an original Penguin, Wonder Woman and now Confederate Raider in my collection and although they're not horror kits, I would have to say they are my favorites! Although choosing one is not an easy task!! - Denis

For styrene, I would go with Moebius/Aurora Big Frankie Glow Version. I know it isn't very scary or not much of a horror, but I love that kit!

For resin I would have to go with Mark Newmans Moonsinger werewolf. Still my all time favorite, and that includes a lot of great kits :cool: I would definitely have to give a nod to the Earthbound Big Head series as well, and Forbidden Zones Frankenstein, Dracula, and Wolfman busts are just about perfect :thumbsup:

For Vinyl I would choose the Billiken Dracula. But since I traded mine away I would choose Billiken Saucer Man.

anybody have both billiken frank and horizon frank for comparison.?
Ive got both, and they are both great (and very similar), but I think I like the billikin likeness just a tad better.
I agree. I don't have the Horizon Frankenstein kit, but I built one for a friend years ago. The two kits are very similar in most respects; the poses are almost identical except for the arms, and I also think the Billiken kit has a better likeness. If I hadn't lucked onto the Billiken kit at a convention years ago I would most certainly have the Horizon kit in my stash.

My favorite is the Aurora Phantom of the Opera for sentimental reasons. It was the first kit my folks bought for me, and I still remember sitting at the kitchen table while my mom assembled it with Elmer's glue.
My second favorite is the Aurora Bride of Frankenstein, a kit which I coveted for years as a kid, and finally ordered directly from Aurora. Still remember the day it arrived in the mail.
