31 Days of Toy Terror: The Mummy Playset from McFarlane's Monsters Playsets by McFarlane Toys
the Werewolf set and I'm probably going to do so again here. These things were just fabulous and if Todd McFarlane ever wants to try his hand at returning to a non-licensed horror property, I think he'd be wise to reexamine these again. Blending together highly detailed (although smaller scaled) action figures) with a diorama like playset, these guys look fantastic on display, kind of like the old Aurora model kits. Today I'm going to be your ghoulish guide as I walk you through the horror that is the mummy's tomb from The Mummy Playset, one of the four series 2 sets. Released in 1998, for some reason I never owned any of these (I think I had gotten back into collecting vintage G.I. Joes and being a hardcore gamer at the time) so I was super excited to pick all of these back up a few years back and discover them anew! Ready for a jaunt through this creepy crypt? Then join me, if you dare....
The glowing yellow eyes are slightly unusual for a statue, aren't they? The staff looks a bit more menacing, too!
OK, it's moved away. Let's move on, shall we?
Look! A few of the jars appear to be intact! That larger jar up there, the one with the jackal headed sculpture of Duamutef on top, probably contains the stomach of this tomb's mummy. Ah! and this one down by our feet probably contains the intestines. Notice the falcon headed lid representing Qebehsenuef.
Well, let's head up these stairs, shall we?
What's that? Well, as a matter of fact, I do hear something now that you mention it...
Let's open this up! Hurry!
Oh my! Yes! It's hips are moving. And it's shoulders. It's head just turned! Quickly, quickly! Let's run to our helicopter outside!
Get to the chopper!! Get to the chopper now!!!
Be careful! That bit of old wooden floor you're running on doesn't look very safe! It's likely to give away at any moment. I see something moving down there, too!!!
