To a new world of gods and monsters!

A company called Resin Realities released a few years ago these four busts of the main characters of the legendary "Bride of Frankenstein" movie, directed by James Whale in 1935. Sculpted by Mark VanTyne in 1:4 scale.

Dr. Henry Frankenstein (played by Colin Clive):

Dr. Frankenstein: "I've been cursed for delving into the mysteries of life!"

The whole set of all four busts:

The mad and mysterious Dr. Pretorius ( played by Ernest Thesiger):

Dr. Pretorius: "Sometimes I have wondered whether life wouldn't be much more amusing if we were all devils, no nonsense about angels and being good."
