About Me High-end Shopper
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!

FRANKENSTEIN WAS THE HIT OF HALLOWEEN
WAS THE HIT OF HALLOWEEN
A Lot Of Monster For The Buck!
from Bronx New York
About Me Budget Shopper
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!
from Bluffdale, Utah
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.
Luv this but the sound doesn't work too heavy to return but spirit made it worth my while to keep
Great! So glad we got it!
from Atlanta, Ga.
Easy to assemble and works perfect
Great Looking Prop
By Haunted Dave
from A little graveyard in New Carlisle Ohio
I love this guy he is so cool great sound he moves his arms, I wish he would turn at his waist like some of other gemmy's props but I guess Frankie never really did in the movies...he is so cool go get one!!!!
best animatronic ever
By Igor, right hand man to you know who.
from Frankenstein's castle in the lab.
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.
great addition to any display
By Igor, right hand man to you know who
from Frankensteins castle in Dayton, Ohio
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.
Worth Every Penny
from Lehi, UT
Awesome! Scares my dogs, wife, and little children. Actually made my 9 year old neighbor cry and run for her mom. Worth every penny!
Best Animatronic Ever
from Los Angeles, CA
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.

Boris Karloff Frankenstien
By emerald hills haunter
from redwood city, CA
ITS ALIVE! he is HUGE. Got him the day after halloween, and I love him. He will be great in my mad scientist lab. He durable, and really tall. He is different because he is not from a recent horror movie like Friday the 13th. Get him before it's too late!!

Every Laboratory MUST have one!!
By LT Scare
from Foothill Ranch, Ca.
We modified the old Gemmy Monster, even put a Frankenstein "Cap" on him, but he just did not look the part. This guy looks fantastic in our Home Haunt Laboratory. 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!!!
By M. McKenzie
from Independence, MO
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!

Very Realistic and Big
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.
True to its Spirit
from Rehoboth, Ma
With the proper lighting the prop looks realitic and scary. Neighbor kids loved it!!! Excellent quality for the price.
Universal's Frankenstein's monster prop
from Orlando, FL
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.
Top of the Line!
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.
This Is One AWESOME Item......I Love It
from Florence, SC
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......
LIFE SIZED FRANKENSTEIN
from WINDBER, PA
THIS PROP TRUELY IS LIFESIZE, LOOKS VERY LIFELIKE, I WISH HE DID MORE THAN MOAN BUT A VERY LARGE AND DETAILED PROP. HE IS A LITTLE PRICEY BUT FOR THE SIZE HE IS WORTH IT. I REALLY HOPE THAT THIS IS THE FIRST OF MORE UNIVERSAL MONSTERS, KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK......LOOKS GREAT WITH MY COLLECTION
By Bride of Frank
from Houston, TX
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 3rd animatronic in my collection (Jason and Michael). Nice to see a trip further back in time. My son loves the size and the effect.

Great but PRICEY
from Loganville, Ga.
This latest addition to the Spirit line is really nice. 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
