While the US still has to wait till November to get this toy, it is abundant in Canada where it can be found at EB Games, Toysrus and local collectible shops. There were several questions regarding this figure, such as the changes to the tooling and if the type of plastic used was different, since that was a point of contention with the Mindwipe figure. Well, as we can see in the video reviews below, there isn't that much of a change in terms of plastic, or even tooling. Since this is not a cheap toy (voyager price for a deluxe toy), we are posting these reviews so that you can have as much info as possible on this latest collaborative figure.

Anyone in the UK or US can get it here: https://hasbropulse.com/products/transf ... p-draculus

If it doesn't use any better plastic than TR Mindwipe, then I won't be getting this one. That one always felt kind of cheap since many of the parts were made of that flimsy rubber/plastic. and the 'cape'? Well, good they added something extra, but cloth is notoriously hard to make look good, especially on a figure that small. It doesn't really look 'majestic' because a patch that small won't drape or flow the way a full sized cape should....

That cape could be modded with a bendy wire inside.
One thing is sure though. The wings-legs are still rubber and it's clearly NOT worth the asking price. Especially the Canadian price.

Also, LOL scalpers asking 120$CAN for that common (or soon to be common) toy. #-o

I feel safe calling it a common toy in Canada

I have Convobat, so any other use of Mindwipe's mold isn't worth having, though I'll always pick a black robot over a purple one. Wait for Black Friday, boys/boyettes.

On a side note, after the Ghostbusters and Back to the Future crossovers, boy did Universal get scammed with this...

It's a shame to hear that draculus addresses none of the issues the former mold had, I was rather looking forward to this figure as someone who has skipped all the uses of mindmaster so far, but the fact that the head just hangs out on his rear is almost insulting, which further compounds the disappointment :(

With just a bit more effort, that bat head could have folded into the chest cavity.

Or with a bit more effort than that, put the dracula head inside the chest cavity, which I think would be better.

Oh, wow. I can't believe they just let the head hang off like that.

All those other Universal monsters? Just leave them be. We don't need more like this.

If I wasn't getting this as a birthday present from my wife (who's a big Drac fan and put in a preorder) I might have just passed. I think the bot mode is very strong, but there was no need to have the head do that. They would have been better served just leaving it as a Headmaster. It might have even made better lore!

Getting a Wolf Man figure out of Titans Return Wolfwire/Weirdwolf seems like a slam dunk, and this year is the 80th anniversary of the film, but I don't think it's gonna happen. I hope we don't have to wait another 5 years for something like that, but most of these "crossover" figures seem to be based on anniversaries, and if they let the 80th pass by, I don't see them celebrating the 81st or 82nd just for the heck of it. People like nice "round" numbers that end in 0's or 5's.

Shame about the head, but he looks good regardless. I am really excited for the cape
