The second Toy of Terror is a little something special for fans of AMERICAN HORROR STORY: Funk POP!’s take on ASYLUM and FREAK SHOW character Pepper! Standing at 3 and 3/4-inches tall, this vinyl Pepper is modeled after Naomi Grossman’s portrayal of the tragic character and is often considered the first bridge between seasons on the anthology series.

Perfect for the Gremlin fan in your life, you can pick up this green bastard for $22.99 here.
Our fifth, and last, Toy of Terror is one that is unfortunately timely, although among the most desired of its kind: NECA’s Pamela and Jason Voorhees from FRIDAY THE 13TH!
