Toys of Terror comes out of the gate this week with a big ticket item, offering an expensive collectible for RESIDENT EVIL die-hards: Hollywood Collectibles’ William Birkin Statue! Standing at 1:4 scale, this 25-inch statue is made out of heavyweight polystone and hand-painted to capture all the monstrous details of the RESIDENT EVIL 2 antagonist. With only 750 pieces made worldwide, this chilling collectible comes in at $399.99 here.
The second Toy of Terror this week is another addition from the folks at McFarlane Toys, offering one of Season Five’s big bads for THE WALKING DEAD collectors with their Series 7 Gareth figure! Standing at 7-inches tall, this figure features 22 points of articulation and comes with a meat-stripped human carcass accessory. Coming in blister card packaging, you can get THE WALKING DEAD’s doomed cannibal villain for $14.99 here.
Next up is the most expensive of this week’s batch, with Hollywood Collectibles outdoing our first Toy of Terror with a 1:18 scale, 20-inch replica of the Carrier Vehicle from ALIENS! Based of the actual blueprints from ALIENS, this is the first large format replica of the iconic armored vehicle, and features a detailed, weathered design as well as rotating tired and a movable gun turret. Made from heavyweight polystone and on a U.S.S. Sulaco display base, this replica is limited to 1,000 pieces and is priced at $499.99 here.
Conversely, our fourth Toy of Terror is the least expensive of our selections this week, coming from dependable people at Funko POP!: Twisty the Clown from AMERICAN HORROR STORY: FREAK SHOW! Standing at 3 and 3/4-inches tall, this figure comes in the same design as the iconic FREAK SHOW frightener and comes in a slick vinyl bust. Perfect for AMERICAN HORROR STORY die-hards or Funko completists, you can pick up this creepy clown for $9.99 here.
Last but not least, our fifth Toy of Terror comes from Titan Merchandising and will appeal to Hammer Horror hounds: the Van Helsing Masterpiece Collection bust! Standing at 8-inches tall, this 3/4 sculpt features the likeness of Peter Cushing as Dracula’s mortal enemy and a painstakingly detailed likeness. A must-have for Hammer fiends, this bust is available for $89.99 here.
