Our first Toy of Terror this week is an entry from Tweeterhead, and features the latest bust of FANGORIA #344’s coveted covergirl: Elvira, Mistress of the Dark! Standing at 18-inches tall, this statue features an original Christmas-themed sculpt and design from Trevor Grove and Tony McVey. Officially authorized by Elvira and signed by the buxom beauty herself, you can stuff this gorgeous horror icon in your stocking this holiday season HERE.
Coming in at number two this week is a trio of toys from NECA, who offer the very first round of officially licensed ALIEN: ISOLATION figures! Standing at 7-inches each, these articulated figures come individually packaged and feature “Jumpsuit Amanda,” “Spacesuit Amanda,” and “Isolation Xenomorph.” Also featuring a motion detector, flamethrower, backpack accessories, removable helmet, handgun, and bendable tail, you can pre-order this terrifying trinity HERE.
Next up is a trusted release from the gang over at McFarlane Toys, who offer an excellent collectible for WALKING DEAD die-hards: the WALKING DEAD 368-piece Prison Catwalk Construction Set! Each construction set includes completely buildable prison catwalk environment with two sets of stairs, sliding cell block doors, and collapsible flooring. The set also includes an upper and lower prison cell complete with toilet, sink, cot with sheet, and table with character-themed accessories.

Our fourth Toy of Terror this week comes from the people at Medicom as they bring their Gizmo figure from GREMLINS 2: THE NEW BATCH! Standing at 9-inches tall and featuring a vinyl visage, this figure comes with red “Rambo” headband and makeshift bow & arrow for on-screen accuracy. Bowing in March 2016, you can pre-order this adorable miniature monster HERE.
Last but not least for our 70th(!) edition of Toys of Terror is a riveting bust of a sci-fi horror cult classic: FRANKENSTEIN MEETS THE SPACE MONSTER!
