Horror Hunting! 2016 NY Comic Con Edition

by Sean McLaughlin

Welcome to the latest and greatest installment of Horror Hunting!  After a long hiatus, we’re excited to bring the world of horror toys and collectables directly to your computer screen.  And what better place to pick up again then…..New York Comic Con 2016!  Thanks to our partners-in-crime over at Action Figure Collectors (http://www.actionfigurecollectors.com/), we can bring you all of the cool exhibits and images of upcoming horror action figure and statue products from heavyweights Mezco (producers of the genius Living Dead Dolls) and NECA (who continue to acquire interesting licenses of beloved video game and movie franchises).  So let’s get to it!

“We have such sights to show you!” – Pinhead

First up is Mezco, who really made a name for themselves with the Living Dead Dolls collection in the early 2000’s.  However, not a company to rest on their laurels, Mezco began creating statues of iconic Universal Monsters (Frankenstein!), along with an entire line of various Chucky-themed collectables from Child’s Play for this year’s convention.  They also debuted incredibly wicked Living Dead versions of Sam from Trick r Treat and Ash from Evil Dead.  They had a lot of new products to offer, and were definitely a highlight for the convention’s horror fans!

While NECA didn’t have too much on display that wasn’t already unveiled earlier this year at New York Toy Fair,  their upcoming line of horror figures are simply awesome.  Everything from Ash vs. Evil Dead to A Nightmare on Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors version of Freddy Krueger to figures based on underrated sequal The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2 (‘Chop-Top’ Sawyer!!!), NECA just keeps pumping out the gems.  The future is bright for this toy company, and horror fans are the real winners.
