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…
One of the most recognizable weapons in Freddy Krueger’s repertoire kicks off this week: the syringe glove from A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET 3: DREAM WARRIORS! With articulated fingers, this plastic replica glove features a copper metallic deco and four plastic syringes which exude a screen-accurate blue glow. So for Freddy fans who like their costume to cut deep, the DREAM WARRIORS syringe glove can be bought for $29.99 here.
While we’re on the subject of deep cuts, here’s a slasher action figure you don’t see everyday: DeConte Figures’ Leslie Vernon replica! Standing at 7 inches tall, the anti-hero of BEHIND THE MASK finally gets the toy he deserves. Fully articulated and in extremely limited quantity, you can finally put Leslie alongside Freddy, Jason and other icons for the low price of $19.99 here.
Next up is a little something special for fans of board games and THE WALKING DEAD alike: USAopoly’s RISK: THE WALKING DEAD SURVIVAL EDITION! With a brand new southwest map and a twist on the standard RISK rulebook, this edition pits gamers against each other for precious resources while also fending off hordes of zombies! Providing a new tabletop experience for strategy game players new and old, WALKING DEAD fans can add a little grue to their game night for $44.99 here.
This week’s fourth Toy of Terror is the bank buster of this group, but may be a rare gem for horror collectors worldwide: the 1:4 scale statue of The Creeper! With incredible detail and carrying a disembodied head, this JEEPERS CREEPERS figure from Hollywood Collectibles is 19-inches tall and carries his signature axe. With only 600 individually numbered statues available, this statue can be yours for a wallet-emptying $239.99 here.
This last figure is the most recent of the bunch, as we feature NECA’s 24-inch head-to-tail figure of GODZILLA! From the eponymous 2014 film by Gareth Edwards, this figure stands at 12-inches tall with a scale-appropriate 12-inch tail to please even the most hard-to-impress GODZILLA completisst! With 25 points of articulation, movie-accurate sound effects and a bendable tail, the massive 2014 GODZILLA figure can take up your shelf space for $49.99 here!
