So if you’re searching for a ghoulish gift, look no further…
Our first Toy of Terror this week comes from the folks at Gaya Entertainment, and will be a treat for die-hard SILENT HILL fans: the Robbie the Rabbit plush toy! Standing at 14-and-1/2-inches tall, this plush toys features a blood stained decor and is based on a screen-accurate design of the character from the SILENT HILL games. To give your kids nightmares for the rest of their lives, you can pick up this Robbie the Rabbit figure for $34.99 here.
Next up is something special from Hollywood Collectibles, giving the all-star treatment to one of the ’90s most understandably popular horror icons: Sil from SPECIES! Standing at 19-inches tall on a customized base, this 1:4 statue is hand-painted on heavyweight polystone and is accurate to both H.R. Giger’s creature designs as well as her portrayal by Natasha Henstridge. With only 150 pieces made, this stunning statue could be yours for $329.95 (or a payment plan of $41 per month) here.
Coming in at number three this week is another entry from Gentle Giant into the Toys of Terror pantheon, and may be a bit of a spoiler for non-WALKING DEAD fans: the 1:4 scale Merle Dixon Zombie Statue! Hailing at 16+ inches, this statue captures Michael Rooker’s shocking zombie visage in superb detail. Complete with a certificate of authenticity, this hand-painted statue is limited to only 570 pieces, so if you’ve got the dough, you can pick it up for $398.99 here.
The fourth Toy of Terror is a real special addition for Freddy Kreuger collectors out there: the 30th Anniversary Freddy from NECA! At nearly 7-inches tall, this figure comes with three interchangeable faces (including the iconic Freddy skull face), an interchangeable left hand (with the missing fingers hand) and a slew of accessories, including the tongue phone, fedora and a human skin mask! Also featuring a fully-articulated lower body, this Freddy figure can be yours while supplies last for $21.99 here.
The final Toy of Terror this week is another NECA variant with a cool twist on sci-fi horror’s most dangerous extraterrestrial: the PREDATOR solar powered bobble head! Powered by the sun, this PREDATOR collectible bobs when in sunlight, eliminating the need for batteries or extraneous force. Standing at 6-inches tall, you can have your own eco-friendly PREDATOR Jungle Hunter for $13.99 here.
