NECA – Be My Victim

It’s another exciting day in the word of horror toys!

Yesterday via Twitter Neca was teasing a new horror license reveal for today

After that, the comments section turned into a tornado of people trying to guess what the new license could be.

“Child’s Play 2019?” perhaps older franchises we currently don’t have Neca figures of, such as Monster Squad, Tales from the Crypt, The Thing the list goes on and on, but I don’t think anybody saw this character coming.

Well, today via Facebook the speculating and guessing was over, let’s see what NECA brought us this time.

Did you say his name five times? Will you be his victim?

We dare you to say his name five times! From the classic horror film series Candyman!

The terrifying slasher films told the story of vengeful urban legend Candyman, who could be summoned by speaking his name five times in front of a mirror.

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.

 

I for one am extremely excited for this figure, the movie is highly underrated which never made me think we’d see a current figure of this character.

The last time we saw Tony Todd’s Candyman in figure form was from Todd McFarlane’s Movie Maniacs line years ago.

Will you be picking up this uncanny looking Candy Man figure?

 

Candy Man is expected to release in November

And as always you can pre-order yours at Off-Kilter Toys right now!

I was born and raised in West Virginia (insert WV movie cliches here). Growing up life was boring back in the sticks. I had no friends nearby, and nothing to do. However, the living room was like a cinema library. All the DVDs, and VHS towering to the ceiling. So while my school friends were hanging out or playing games online together, I was at home studying, memorizing, and falling in love with movies. Around the age of five or six the earliest horror movie I remember watching was Evil Dead II: Death By Dawn, it was roughly recorded off TV on to VHS along with The Labyrinth and a few others that weren't rememberable. I just recall being blown away at what I was seeing, especially when Linda's head is tightened in the vice, and Ash slowly carves into her skull with his chainsaw. There my addiction began, so I started gathering up every horror movie I could find in the house. Finding titles like The Thing, The Stuff, Halloween and if we didn't have it, off to Blockbusters I went (Good lord I miss Blockbusters). After that I was hooked, horror became my first love of cinema and every other genre got back seat.
