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…
Our last Toys of Terror for 2014 begins with an old fan favorite in an adorable new look, as Funko POP! hits with the Medieval Deadite from ARMY OF DARKNESS! Standing at 3 and 3/4-inches tall, this vinyl rendition of the wicked warrior features the character’s signature shield, spear and horned helmet. And it goes perfect with our previously featured Funko POP! Ash Williams figure, so if you’ve looking to amp up your EVIL DEAD collection, pick up this bad boy for $9.99 here.
Up next is another reliable replica from Diamond Selects, continuing their grand tradition of Universal Monster masterpieces with their figure of THE CREATURE FROM THE BLACK LAGOON! Sculpted by Jean St. Jean, this screen-accurate Creature stands at 7-inches tall and features 16 points of articulation, making it perfectly customizable in its detailed display base. So if you’re a Creature completist, look no further than this collectible, which you can pick up for $22.99 here.
Our third toy this week is another addition from the good people over at Distinctive Dummies, striding the line between fantasy and reality with their 1:6 scale figure of Colin Clive! Sculpted by Steve Thompson, this Colin Clive figure is a whopping 12-inches tall and features custom, hand-made clothing, including his doctor get-up for FRANKENSTEIN/BRIDE OF FRANKENSTEIN customization. One of the more limited DD replicas, you can get this Clive figure while they last for $110.00 (which is inclusive of worldwide shipping) here.
Next up is much more of a collectible than a toy, but nonetheless is an impressive addition perfect for the FRIDAY THE 13TH fanatic in your life: Rubies Horror’s Camp Crystal Lake sign! Accurately tattered and realistically detailed, this sign features the iconic “Welcome to Crystal Lake” visage and measures in at a respectable 17.5″ x 16″! You can hang this on your door, property or campgrounds (at your own risk, of course), or add it to your collection for only $9.99 here.
Lastly for 2014 is another wallet-busting Premium Figure from Sideshow Toys, featuring a pulp icon at her most realistic and sultry: Vampirella! Complete with a bat accessory and a Gothic graveyard base, this new design from renowned pin-up artist Stanley “Artgerm” Lau stands at a massive 25-inches tall by 15-inches wide by 14-inches long. And with a limited run of only 1000 figures, you can get this replica while it lasts for $399.99 (or payment plans starting at $51.43 a month) here.
