Toys of Terror #20


Welcome to TOYS OF TERROR, Fango’s weekly feature exhibiting the coolest horror accessories across the web. Whether you’re a collector, connoisseur or simply making your love of horror a family affair, these petrifying playthings are likely to impress even the most heartless horror fan. So if you’re searching for a ghoulish gift, look no further…

It’s the big 2-0 here at Toys of Terror, and to celebrate the occasion we’re featuring some collectibles for everybody! Be it the casual collector or a big spender, there will be something special on display for horror fans of any wallet size.

To start us off, Toys of Terror features a piece of barware for anyone who wants to add horror to their party: Medicom’s ALIEN Facehugger Bottle Opener! 3-inches tall and made of metal, this Facehugger Bottle Opener will pry open bottles like human mouths and add some extraterrestrial flair to your drinking experience. Complete with a magnetic back and a collectible slip-case, you can have a Facehugger Bottle Opener of your own for only $15.99 here.


Next up is NECA’s two-pack of horror’s most terrifying telekinetic: Stephen King’s CARRIE! Featuring the character both before and after her literal bloodbath, both figures stand at approximately 6 and 1/2 inches tall and come with a collectible clamshell packaging. For any horror collector whose shelf lacks a frightening female presence, these CARRIE figures are only $34.99 (less than $20 a piece!) here.


Our third Toy of Terror is a bit of a deep cut, but instantly recognizable to any devout NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET fan: The “Soul Pizza” from A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET 4: THE DREAM MASTER! A collectible from Morbid Enterprises, this 16-inch replica of the “Soul Pizza” requires 2 AA batteries but provides realistic, screen-accurate audio to please even the hardened Freddy collector. Perhaps even cooler, the “Soul Pizza” comes with a limited edition NIGHTMARE pizza box, making this a collectible to die for! You have your “Soul Pizza” delivered for only $69.99 here.


The next Toy of Terror is a bust unlike many others and will certainly appeal to fans of Hammer Horror and their most intimidating thespian: the Maxi Bust of Christopher Lee’s Frankenstein! Modeled on Lee’s appearance in Hammer’s THE CURSE OF FRANKENSTEIN, this 8-inch bust comes from the more-than-reliable Titan Merchandise. Hitting shelves next month, you can add this 3/4-length sculpt to your creepy collection for $99.99 here.


Our final Toy of Terror this week is priced for only the most hardcore of horror fans, but for a damn good reason as it’s a 1:1 scale replica of the fossilized hand of THE CREATURE FROM THE BLACK LAGOON!!! Factory Entertainment Prop Replicas have created this limited-edition recreation of the fossilized Creature hand using advanced 3D printing technology, giving fans the most screen-accurate and jaw-dropping collectible possible. With contributions from Universal Monsters aficionado Bob Burns based on rare photographs from the original prop designer, Chris Mueller, this 19-inch polyresin reproduction comes with a collectible plaque-adorning base, certificate of authenticity and prop story booklet, as well as packaging made to look like an era-appropriate shipping crate! Limited to only 500 pieces, this astonishing replica comes at a hefty $289.99 here.
