In 2017, an animated adaptation of the popular Castlevania video games debuted on Netflix. A second season followed in 2018. The series took many of it’s elements from Konami’s Castlevania 3: Dracula’s Curse for the Nintendo Entertainment System, which greatly expanded the lore for the series. After his wife is accused of witchcraft and burned alive, Count Dracula wages war on Eastern Europe. Trevor Belmont, a disgraced monster hunter, becomes the latest Belmont to face off against Vlad Dracula Tepes. He is joined on his quest by magician Sypha Belnades, and Dracula’s own son, Alucard.
The new figures by Diamond Select Toys represent the first Castlevania figures since NECA’s line from 2007. Trevor Belmont, Sypha Belnades, and Alucard each stand about 7″ tall, with roughly 16 points of articulation. They include character specific weapons and accessories, as well as multiple interchangeable parts. Castlevania Select series 1 is in stores now, with a second series on the way. Our friends at Diamond Select Toys have sent over the figures. After the jump, check out my thoughts on the new series, and a full photo gallery of the figures.
