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 first Toy of Terror this week comes from Tweeterhead, whose love for the more classic macabre has shown up in this column multiple times, and now is no exception as we feature his Eddie Munster figure! In a collaboration with Sideshow Collectibles, this 6 and ½-inch screen-accurate collectible maquette depicts Eddie sitting on a comfy pillow watching television and clutching his doll, Woof-Woof. For MUNSTERS die-hards, this 1:6 scale bust will likely be the highlight of your chilling collection, and you can pick it up for $239.99 (or a payment plan of $54.00 a month) here.
Next up is a weapon replica from Rubies Merchandise, and features one of Jason’s more favored tools outside of the trusty machete: the official FRIDAY THE 13TH Jason Axe! Measuring in at 27-inches long, this plastic axe replica is modeled after Jason Voorhees’ other weapon of choice and goes great for any horror fan donning the iconic hockey mask for Halloween. So whether you’re a FRIDAY THE 13TH fanboy or just a fan of plastic bludgeons, you can pick up this Jason Axe for $9.99 here.
Coming in at number three this week is a new entry from Mezco Toyz, as we feature the Living Dead Dolls Series 30 Collection! Featuring 5 of the 10-inch Living Dead Dolls, including Lydia the Lobster Girl, the FeeJee Mermaid, Edgrr, Lucy the Geek and Madame, this set comes with individual customized coffin display cases and death certificates. Whether you’re a longtime LDD collector or are looking to build one from the ground up, you can get this collection for $119.99 here.
Our fourth Toy of Terror is something Hammer Horror fans are sure to relish as we feature Titan Merchandise’s limited edition Victor von Frankenstein Masterpiece Bust! Limited to 1000 pieces, this detailed, 8-inch tall sculpt realistically recreates Peter Cushing’s signature role as the overly inquisitive Frankenstein from Hammer’s THE CURSE OF FRANKENSTEIN, THE REVENGE OF FRANKENSTEIN and more. So if you prefer your collectibles as elegant as your scares, you can pick up this statue for $99.99 here.
Lastly, Toys of Terror rounds out this week with another addition from Diamond Selects, featuring their recently announced first series of GHOSTBUSTERS figures! With detailed sculpts, exacting likenesses and character-specific accessories, these 7-inch figures of Ray Stanz, Winston Zeddemore and Louis Tully each have 16 points of articulation. Sculpted by Gentle Giant, Diamond Selects offers 2 of each figures per set, and you can get them all for $149.94 here.
