Stuff: For those who like their horror travel-sized.
I haven’t decided yet whether or not these PVC figurines of classic Universal monsters (with one stray non-Universal nosferatu-style vampire thrown in) are cool or insufferably cutesy. And when the blogger is in doubt, then it is you, citizen reader, who must decide!
These three-inch tall figures are the product of Spanish toy-art creator dKiller Panda. As a dude who has capitalization issues with his own handle, I can’t take issue with the name; but I remain hesitant about the entire ethos of the “toys meant to be looked at and not played with” thing.
That said, I love that Mr. Panda dug up a delightful second stringer like the not-a-vampire from London After Midnight.
These figurines will be available from Dark Horse comics this coming March. A set of three is going to run you about 20 clams.
