Frankenstein had two different head sculpts. He was initially sold with a "flat top." Due to licensing issues, Mego had to change the sculpt. A small number of flat top heads were painted blue before Mego came out with the new sculpt. Blue-Haired Frankenstein figures are very rare and desired by collectors.

Like Frankenstein, Dracula had two different head sculpts. He was initially sold with "smooth hair." Due to licensing issues, Mego had to change the sculpt. A small number of smooth hair heads were painted red before Mego came out with the new sculpt. Red-Haired Dracula figures are very rare and desired by collectors.
