When I was a kid and my passion for movies was just starting to blossom, I was obsessed with collecting movie memorabilia.
My budget was small- I was 7- but I’d beg my dad take me to comic book shops, Spencer’s at the mall, and Media Play every weekend.
Remember Media Play?! They sold books, CDs, movies, memorabilia, games, toys… that place was my JAM!
I was- and still am- fascinated and constantly on the search for new horror toys.
There’s something wonderful about a company manufacturing toys traditionally meant for children based on movies made for adults. A mini adorable Leatherface? Yes, please!
Evidence that we never truly have to “grow up” and can still treat ourselves to toys even as horror-loving adults.
Below are 5 horror toys we’re dying to own!
Good Guy doll from Trick or Treat Studios
I looked high and low for a Good Guy doll when I was a kid, asking store clerks and scouring the listings on eBay for Chucky minus the Bride of Chucky scars or maniac killer facial expression.
Unless you wanted to shell out thousands of dollars for a screen-used prop or collector’s replica, finding a Good Guy doll was impossible… until Trick or Treat Studios launched their Kickstarter campaign to manufacture one.
When I heard the news that we’d finally get a Good Guy, I was already reaching for my wallet. Then I saw the price… $500 + $35 shipping. And just like that, my lifelong dream of owning a Good Guy doll was put on hold again.
To be clear, I’m not knocking the company for the high price at all. I’m just happy someone had the idea, and it’s being made. The cost of production is probably quite high, the doll looks perfect, and 1,323 other horror fans have backed the project.
But, unfortunately, I’m not at the financial level in life yet to drop more than half a grand on a doll. One day, it’ll happen… but until then, I’ll have to wait to get my own ‘friend to the end’.
