The Universal Monsters were technically not a new license to Remco as their parent company produced action figures and other novelties based on the characters from 1973 to 1976. The AHI figures were somewhat "dimestore" compared to these more deluxe offerings. Remco enlisted sculptor Ken Sheller (who did work for Mego) to create these 9" figures.

The monsters had accordian arms and could "crush" their victims. The Monsterizer is a recreation of the Frankenstein lab table and a tough piece to find today.

Remco followed up in 1981 with a series of 3 3/4" Monsters and two new 9" creatures, The Phantom and The Creature from the Black Lagoon. Both of these figures were sold in limited amounts and are difficult to find.
