Mat Irvine: So Munster models continue to be released, and the latest kits on the scene are two figures from Moebius, featuring the head of the household, Herman, and his father-in-law of indeterminate age, Grandpa Munster. Today, I'm looking at Herman.
The box front (header pic) features a photograph of Fred Gwynn playing Herman in the original The Munsters TV series. The base (below) features the contents of the kit, plus mentions of other Moebius Munster kits: Grandpa Munster and the family home, 1313 Mockingbird Lane.
The components (below) are mostly in ivory plastic, but you get some clear parts and a length of wire, seen here at bottom right.
Parts fit is mostly excellent, though some filler can be useful (below) where the arms meet the shoulders.
Two more clear parts are for cobwebs to attach to the table legs. These are maybe a bit too thick to be realistic, but can be omitted if you wish. A length of tube and wire can be used, to connect the equipment on the Grandpa Munster figure set.
I think the original kit’s sculptor, Jeff Yagher, achieved a great likeness of Fred Gwynn.
SMN Note: This looks a decent kit of a fave childhood TV series, but the scale is perhaps an odd choice. 1:6 or 1:12 we can understand, but 1:9?
