Price: $16 USD

Romero 1978 Dawn of the Dead-inspired MONROEVILLE MINIS (Wave one), which showcase The Plaid Shirt Zombie (released this month) to be followed by Swat Peter (December), Flyboy Zombie (January), and Swat Roger (February).

Sticking with cult horror comes WEREWOLF VICTIM MINIFIGURE which is inspired by Jon Landis classic An American Werewolf in London (1981). The film itself mixed dark comedy and humor together perfectly and even had some of the most groundbreaking and impressive award-winning transformation effects to date. Get your commemorative Werewolf Victim (Jack Goodman) resin figure that stands around 2 inches now for the low price of $15 USD.
Way before James Gunn jumped on board the Marvel Universe juggernaut, he was making a nice little name for himself directing horror films. One of those particular films which still sits well with fans is the 2006 horror/comedy Slither. One of the more notable characters from that film is the giant mutated man creature known as Grant, as portrayed by Michael Rooker. Pick’s Vinyls has decided to immortalize this character with a LIMITED GRANT GRANT RUBBER MINIFIGURE. Get all the gruesome goodness with this 2.5 inch tall figure with a cost of $20 USD (this figure is very limited).
The next two are beyond impressive. First let’s take a look at this delightful little dame, HENRIETTA DELUXE RESIN MINIFIGURE SET preorder . Get one of the most memorable Deadites from the The Evil Dead films, complete with a two-piece ball joint Deadite neck and head, the Necronomican (book of the dead) accessory, an interchangeable human head, cellar door and original art from Mike Alvarez. Get this hand-painted premium figure set for that Evil Dead collector among you for only $40 USD. Look for this item to start shipping early/mid-December.
The ’80s saw a handful of notable remakes, from the Tobe Hooper-directed Invaders from Mars to the 1988 Chuck Russell directed The Blob. Pre-order THE BLOB MINIFIGURE SET and get consuming victims. Each set will include one semi-translucent rubber minifigure, one set of victim legs, one victim torso, and one ultra-cool “melting” victim torso. The Blob is cast with a hollow bottom, so that it can “absorb” all your 1-1.5 inch minifigures, how snazzy!. Look for this pre-order set to sell for $28 USD and start shipping in early December.
