In the original Dracula novel by Bram Stoker, Lucy Westenra is a victim of Dracula, who is slowly draining her blood, causing the young woman to become gravely ill. While Van Helsing attempts to save her, she is ultimately killed by Dracula, becoming a vampire herself. She begins to stalk an feed on young children, draining their blood slightly, but ultimately dooming them to become vampires themselves if she continues. Van Helsing intervenes and ultimately releases her from her undead nightmare by driving a stake through her heart, decapitating her and stuffing her mouth full of garlic, which would prevent Dracula from resurrecting her again. .
Lucy Westenra is the third figure from the latest wave of Universal Monsters Select Figures from Diamond Select Toys. The new figure from Diamond Select Toys re-imagines Lucy as a monster hunter. With the help of Van Helsing, she is able to control her bloodlust and use her vampiric strengths to hunt the monsters. She’s been out for a bit, and is readily available at comic and specialty shops now. I finally had a chance to review this figure, and I have over 45 high resolution images.
