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…
The first Toy of Terror this week is a different take on a familiar yet frightening face. Thanks to NECA, die-hard Freddy fans can get a little closer to completing their collection with their 7-inch figure of A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET’s video game version of Krueger! In a collectible replica of the 8-bit video game box, this fully articulated replica is a part of a one-time limited edition run. Get the figure while it lasts for $34.99 here!
The next Toy of Terror comes from the always reliable Funko, whose POP! series brings us an adorable extraterrestrial in it’s vinyl Xenomorph. Standing at 3 and 3/4 inches tall, this cute take on the titular monster from ALIEN is the most affordable of this week’s entries, coming in at just north of $11. Perfect for introducing this bloodthirsty beast to the burgeoning fright fan in your family, you can get Funko’s Xenomorph here!
Our third Toy of Terror is a first for this column, as we feature something special for hardcore Sam Raimi enthusiasts! For those who want to get a jump on their Halloween costume this year, consider checking out this impressive lifelike mask of Raimi’s antihero, DARKMAN. Officially licensed by Universal Studios and mask-making house Trick-or-Treat studios, this mask is as repulsive as it is astounding. And for $59.99, you can wreak havoc in Darkman’s disgusting disguise here!
Our next accessory is one for devoted followers of Miami’s infamous small screen vigilante, Dexter Morgan. While Dexter himself may be a blood splatter expert, you can rid yourself of splatter, stains and any other kind of ruin with these official DEXTER coasters! Styled after Dexter’s “trophies”, you can make these collectible coasters a part of your drinking habits for $34.95 here!
Last but certainly not least is a treat for fans of THE TWILIGHT ZONE, and a particular paranoid plane passenger. That’s right, the iconic plane gremlin from “Nightmare at 20,000 Feet” is here as a collectible 5 inch by 3 inch bobblehead! For $12.99, you can have this bouncy piece of horror history here!
