What you called a Frankenstein action figure setup was, in fact, Aurora Plastic Corp's MONSTER SCENES custom builder model kits.

10/13 I missed the Mattel Aliens, the Red Suited Astronaut, and I REALLY thought that was a Wonder Woman playset from the 1960s.

They were, but then Pernell Roberts left the show so they made his figure a generic outlaw.

Only got 7 out of 12. Oh well. At least I know that modern 3D printers can do a LOT better job on the Beatles nowadays. The "action" figures in question #1 look more like identical quadruplets than the Beatles.
