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 chilling collectible this week comes from Executive Replicas, who’ve created what could be the definitive figure version of DAY OF THE DEAD’s “Dr. Tongue.” Featuring 7 points of articulation, real hair, rubbery tongue and a display base, you’ll be hard-pressed to find a better or creepier version of this iconic cult character. For $21.99, George Romero completists could add another undead friend to their collection.
Next up is another charming ghoul from Funko POP!, who recently announced a line of GHOSTBUSTERS vinyl figures to commemorate the film’s 30th anniversary. While each is deserving of your attention, this writer’s personal recommendation goes to the most adorable of the GHOSTBUSTERS adversaries: Slimer! With a translucent base, Funko’s 3 and 3/4 inch figure is now available for preorder at the low price of $9.99 and ships next month, so fright fans need not hesitate to get their own Slimer here.
The third Toy of Terror this week comes to us from our friends over at Full Moon, with their own cute reimagining of the PUPPET MASTER franchise’s own Blade! This 12-inch plush doll comes with a collectible hangtag with character art and statistics, and contains considerably softer versions of Blade’s signature knife and hook. Full Moon fans can get their PUPPET MASTER plush at the company’s store for $24.95.
GREMLINS fans will be sure to appreciate this next frightening figure, as NECA is offering something truly special: the Spider Gremlin Deluxe Action Figure! 10 inches tall, 15 inches across and 12 inches long, this incredibly detailed recreation of the Spider Gremlin from GREMLINS 2: THE NEW BATCH has over 30 points of articulation, making it a truly desirable figure for genre collectors. You can add this awesome accessory to your collection for $49.99 here.
Lastly, we’ll round out our fourth Toys of Terror with something the whole family can enjoy: Hasbro’s THE NIGHTMARE BEFORE CHRISTMAS Monopoly Game! This limited edition collector’s item is great for any NIGHTMARE BEFORE CHRISTMAS die-hard, and features photography from the film, as well as six collectible pewter tokens including Jack’s Skull, Sally, the Mayor’s Hearse, Oogie Boogie, Zombie Duck and Evil Teddy. So for the horror hound with a penchant for game night, THE NIGHTMARE BEFORE CHRISTMAS Monopoly runs at $33.95 here.
