The solid box Mummy in all his sinister glory.
The Lincoln Mummy on a UK card, the Mummy is one of the harder figures to find in the series.

A side by side comparison of the variants found for the Lincoln Mummy figure, the darker material resembles the same type of bandages used on the AHI Mummy.
A close up of the Mummy's face reveals the gory little details such as the blood soaked bandages (you'd have thought it would dry over the centuries) and the gory mouth and eyes. The wonderful appeal to this figure is that you can picture children painting or drawing a Mummy like this. He is tough to find loose and in good shape due to his fragile nature.

The colour schemes had changed but the figures kept that same kooky style they always had. Below is the Tomland Mini Monsters Wolfman, who just rocks that look:
Above a comparison shot of Lincoln Mummy along with the Tomland Mini Monster and the 8" FMOL Mummy, neat-o!
