NECA reveals “Candyman” Figure

We dare you to say his name five times! Over on their Facebook page, NECA revealed a new eight-inch action figure of Tony Todd as the infamous “Candyman”.

This iconic horror character is now being given the MEGO-style treatment by NECA, complete with fabric clothes and his notorious hook hand.

NECA’s clothed action figure features the likeness of legend Tony Todd in two forms – interchangeable heads allow regular and bee-covered expressions. The figure also has an elaborate soft goods coat and comes with an attachable “bee swarm” chest.

The photos you see here are all pending licensor approval, which means these are not necessarily the final sculpt you will get once it is released. I am sure we will see more updates as we get closer to the time period these hit shelves.

The figure will be packaged in a window box, which has yet to be revealed.

“Candyman” joins many other horror characters in this line that all share the same scale. However, he also joins a few other franchises done in this style, so he can now haunt the likes of The Golden Girls, or maybe just help them eat their cheesecake.

The ship date for this item is November 2019, so not long after New York Comic Con 2019.

Mezco reveals “Living Dead Dolls” Jack Torrance ahead of NY Toy Fair 2019

NY Toy Fair 2019 is just a few weeks away, but the reveals have already begun for many companies.

Mezco is one of those companies that come out strong during the show, with loads of new products on display at the event. Before the doors of the Javits center have opened, the company has given us a sneak peek reveal of a new item that will be on display.

The toy, which will be a part of their acclaimed “Living Dead Dolls” series, was revealed in their blog:

While the LDD line is littered with creepy and bloody characters, this one may be the most chilling. The stark facial expression of Jack Torrance from “The Shining” film is certainly shocking, and will be a fine addition for collectors of horror toys.

Equally important, this means Mezco may hold the license to this film for other toys, including One:12 – imagine a One:12 Jack Torrance! This could also potentially open the door for other Stephen King properties in Mezco’s repetoire – fingers crossed!

Jack Torrance is the main protagonist of Stephen King’s The Shining (1977). Jack was nominated as the 25th greatest film villain of all time by The American Film Institute.

Mezco has promised another reveal coming soon before Toy Fair kicks off, so stay tuned for what is next!
