This Dracula figure just sold for a crazy price

In 1980, Tomland Industries, a UK toy company, released a line of highly posable, fully clothed figures called Famous Monsters of Legend, similar in appearance to figures released by Mego. The line included Snowman, Frankenstein, Morlock, The Fly, Wolfman, Cyclops, the Mummy, and Dracula, shown above.

The carded Dracula shown here was recently posted for auction on eBay, and is the only known carded example of this figure still known to exist. In fact, a carded version of this figure had never been seen or documented previously. It is that rare, and it even glows in the dark! It finally sold for an astounding $20,100!

You can see the back of the figure card below, along with a YouTube video of the figure.
