    This is an awesome prop, works perfectly. Nice sensor; also works great with a "try me" button. Spring-loaded prop - collapses down for easy storage. Sturdy and great visually, with nice details. Nothing but accolades. Wish Spirit offered more props of this quality! I've had him for a few years now; he is always a hit at our annual party!

        Frankie is headlining my monster bash. Friends and family can't get enough. Seems well built. This is my first season with him. Let's see how well he holds up. So far I am very satisfied and would recommend this monster for any indoor display.i added a strobe light for lightning effect!

        Scary fun!

        By Pinkindy

        from Bluffdale, Utah

        About Me Midrange Shopper

        Pros

        • Attractive Design
        • Easy to assemble
        • Excellent Sound Quality

        Cons

          Best Uses

          • Front Entry Decor
          • Halloween Party Decor

          The instructions for set up were super easy and I was done really quickly. I have had to assemble quite a few of these animatronics in the past and this one was by far the easiest.

          He is nice and tall, which makes him pretty intimidating. He also startles me every time I walk past him because I think he is a person lurking around. So that is always a good sign when your own prop scares you!

          The quality of his sound is perfect. He is nice and loud and that makes him more scary I think. The only drawback is the thing that other reviewers mentioned---I do wish when he lifted his arms that they went higher. But, given all the other pros, I can't say that would make me return this big guy.

              This is the gold standard of spirit animatronics. He will make an impression on whoever sees him and is sure to be talked about afterwords. The preview video doe's not capture the larger than life appearance he will have. Buy this prop before it's late.

              from Frankensteins castle in Dayton, Ohio

              About Me High-end Shopper

              Best Uses

              • Perfect Halloween Prop

              Frankenstein is the perfect animatronic for including the classic monsters in your display. He is better built than the other animatronics and towers over them by about five inches. His flashing eyes and electrodes, outreaching arms, and angry moaning are perfect for creating the perfect setting for Halloween displays. A must have for anyone who takes Halloween seriously.

                Cons

                • Expensive Consumer Price
                • Needs More Face Detail

                Best Uses

                  Frankenstein is the best animatronic I have because sheerly his massive size is so impressive. He really is to real life scale. I knew he would be big but I was blown away by his size. My only complaints are more detail in his face, he does lack the shadowing under his eyes. The eyes themselves could have been painted better, it looks like a weak paint job that might need retouching up in the future. Overall, very happy with him. Shipping was expensive and honestly wouldn't have been able to get him if he would of been more and had I not gotten him on sale.

We put a green LED spot on his face,the sound of a storm and lightning on the semi-clear roof of the lab. The only remaining improvement would be a better, more appropriate Dr. My Shivers is broken anyway - ready for a replacement Spirit!!!

                                This product was everything I imagined and more. Very high-quality, great sound effects, lights, the whole shebang. To my surprise, it even has springs for legs so it can shrink down for easy storage. If it was cheaper, I'd have two - one indoors and one out to scare unsolicited visitors. Love it!

                                  This looked great when we saw it in the Spirit store, but it even looked better when we put it in our home, the size really shows up well.

                                  If you use external lighting this looks best with a green light. Due to the lights in the bolts you could get away with it in the dark.

                                  Arm raise up to a horizontal position so be sure to plan that into where you put it. Not only is it tall, but also the "arms width" needs to be taken into consideration. We had to move this from where we originally wanted to put it because we failed to consider the arms when activated. Not a complaint but a pleasant surprise.

                                    With the proper lighting the prop looks realitic and scary. Neighbor kids loved it!!! Excellent quality for the price.

                                      I've been collecting these life-size Gemmy figures and this one is by far the best! I hope they continue making the Universal's monters.

                                        This is the best Spirit prop for 2011 for a variety of reasons: he is quite imposing at 6.5 ft. tall, a height that few props can even come close to. His smooth movements and quiet motor make him realistic beyond belief. Although Gemmy, the manufacturer of this prop, may be delcining in selection, their more high-end props continue to carry on their reputation, if only slightly, as the best in the business: as in having the most durable props, if nothing else. All in all, although Frank comes with a hefty price tag, always keep in mind that you get what you pay for. Big price, but extremely heavy-duty in constrcution, especially compared to these cheap piece-of-plastic props that Spirit sells nowadays.

                                          I absolutely love this item. It is so real looking and scary when it makes its noises and lifts its arms. I am so looking forward to Halloween night and seeing the kiddies scream.. It is put together so good and just looks awesome. I can't say enough about the look of it...it's breathtaking......

                                            My favorite time of year is Halloween. I continue to add to my collection each year. This is my third animated prop but, for sure the best!!! "Frank" looks absolutely perfect on our porch. The neighborhood children have all come by to meet him and love him....a few toddlers were tenative.
                                            "Frank" is nicely padded making his strength more believable...his coloring makes him stand out nicely from the street...we enjoy how both his eyes and neck bolts light up....
                                            Definitely happy with our newest addition....

The only set back is it only has 2 sound features. @ [$] it is a bit pricey for the budget shopper. Overall it is great. had to have it... Hope to see Dracula, Wolfman, and others of the Universal Monsters

                                              This boris karloff Frankenstein, is amazing, and is great, for placeing in a laborotory, and starting experiments, with it!

                                              This would look great, in a home haunt, a halloween party, and even a haunted house, and also can be used, to scare kids, and adults, from getting, the candy!

                                              Also this has two modes, one is sensor activated, so when kids and adults, come next, to it, and also the motion activated mode, where you press the button, on the base, and he comes to life, scareing those, around him!

                                              Also the detailing, is amazing, which matches, what he looks like, the bolts, pants jacket shirt, and everything else, including his head, looks great, and his eyes, and also his boots, look great too, as well, which looks great too!

                                              He also comes with a wire adapter, and also which can plug into the wall, nicely, so it activates him, and when he is brought to life, he will scare kids, and adults, around him!

                                              When activated, the bolts in his neck, will light up, as well, as his eyes, and his head, will turn side to side, in a creepy way, and his arms, will move up and down, and he will grunt, and make noises, and the voice, will also say, it's alive, while it raises it's arms, and also it will impress everyone, with it's movements!

                                              The paint is amazing, the pants are black, like they are supposed to be, as well as the jacket, it's green, and looks really realistic, and the shirt is black, as well, underneath the green jacket, and also the boots, are black, giving it a great scary look, and also the black hair, and the green skin, look great, as well too, and the buttons, are well made, also!

                                              So if you want to scare the kids, and adults, at your next halloween party, then you must pick him up, his movements are both frightning, and scary, at the same time, and also will give you a chill up your spine, and will scare guests, and adults, trying to get candy, and it's also, a must have, for anybody!
