So if you’re searching for a ghoulish gift, look no further…
Our first Toy of Terror this week comes from the good folks over at Bandai, bringing one of kaiju fans’ favorite creatures to the collectible realm with their GAMERA figure! Standing at 5-and-½ inches tall, this fully articulated Gamera features a plethora of accessories, including plasma effects and flying pose appendages. Brought to life in a highly detailed sculpt from legendary kaiju artist Tomoo Haraguchi, you can pick up this Gamera figure for $80.99 (with free shipping) here.
Next up is something special for the fans of Tim Burton’s macabre movies, offering the cheeriest version of one of Burton’s classic chillers: Santa Jack Skellington from Funko POP! Standing at 3-and-½ inches tall, this vinyl figure captures the NIGHTMARE BEFORE CHRISTMAS anti-hero in full Santa Claus regalia, even carrying a miniature present under his arm. So whether you’re a NIGHTMARE nut or a Burton completist, you can pick up this holiday horror figure for $9.99 here.
The third Toy of Terror this week is another collectible for the millions of WALKING DEAD fans out there, as we feature the TV version of the Mud Walker! This 5-inch tall bad boy features a disgustingly detailed decor, and can be posed in its muddy display base either as a whole figure or seperated in half! WALKING DEAD die-hards can add this ugly undead bastard from McFarlane Toys to their collection for $14.99 here.
Coming in at number four this week is a collectible from the rarely featured Aquarius Horror Merchandise, who fill up two spots on this week’s rundown. The first is this writer’s personal favorite, and would be the perfect accessory for the young horror fan in your life: the TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE lunchbox! This colorful tin box measures about 7-and-¾ inches wide x 6-and-¾ inches tall x 4-and-⅛ inches long and is guaranteed to keep anyone away from your lunch, especially the meats! You can have a TCM lunchbox of your own for only $12.99 here.
Last but certainly not least is our second entry from Aquarius Horror Merchandise, who are offering a set of BEETLEJUICE playing cards! Measuring 2-and-½ inches x 3-½ inches with a linen type finish, the cards sport the visage of your favorite characters and moments from the horror comedy classic. So whether you’re a professional player of poker or one of those aforementioned Burton completists, you can get a demented deck of BEETLEJUICE cards for $5.99 here.
