Our first Toy of Terror this week is an offering from Figures Toy Company, and features a cartoonish, vintage twist on the Wolfman in their Mad Monsters series!

Made out of plastic with a real cloth setting, you can pick up this werewolf riff for yourself or for the monster kid in your life HERE.
Coming in at number two is an entry from Diamond Selects, and features a bust bank of THE WALKING DEAD comics’ most notorious villain: Negan! Sculpted by Eli Livingston, this stunning 8-inch statue is made out of polystone and is highly detailed to capture the likeness of Negan and his trusty bat, Lucille.

Next up is a debut figure from Creatureplica, who offer their terrific take on the North American Sasquatch!

Our fourth Toy of Terror this week is another entry from NECA, offering a wicked and disturbingly realistic replica of Freddy Kreuger’s bladed gloves from A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET! Measuring in at 14-inches long and featuring a leather-like glove attachment, this screen-accurate prop replica is made out of real metal and comes with a mannequin hand for when not in use. For strictly the more responsible horror fans out there, preferably 17-years-old or older, you can get this petrifying prop HERE.
Last but not least this week is an entry from Sideshow Collectibles, featuring a truly old school badass babe: Lady Death from EVIL ERNIE! Standing at a massive 24-inches tall, this Sideshow statue features the character’s signature scythe, a highly-detailed base and a decor based from her original appearance in the black-and-white comics of yesteryear.
