I have been a Munsters fan ever since I was a wee lad. I’m too young to remember the show in first run but their reruns were an after school staple for years. The Munsters was one of the first shows…even before Batman…to capitalize on mass-merchandising efforts and those continue today as the Munsters remains incredibly popular. This series of figures is actually based on the episode entitled “Hotrod Herman”. It features Herman competing in an auto race.in a customized hotrod created by George Barris who also designed the 1960’s Batmobile. This set of figures also features a chase aspect as each of the four figures comes with a piece of the Munsters staircase along with pet dragon, Spot.
Hotrod Grandpa has a fantastic likeness of actor Al Lewis from his bushy, upturned eyebrows to his long, pointy nose. Grandpa is decked out in a long white, button-down trench coat, black pants, and long brown gloves. He comes with racing goggles, chunk of road, and an interchangeable right hand which holds his cigar. Grandpa has 13 points of articulation.
