Here’s something interesting for horror fans: Eaglemoss/Hero Collector has announced the launch of Horror Heroes – a new figurine collection, featuring some of the most iconic characters from the history of horror.
Each figurine is hand-painted and will be sculpted in metallic resin. The figures will be released individually, making their debut in September 2021, ensuring they land in time for Halloween.
To kick things off, Hero Collector has provided details of the first six figures in the Horror Heroes collection. They are all creepy characters that should appeal to collectors.
The figures announced so far include the Bill Skarsgård version of Pennywise from IT: Chapter One/Two (2017/2019), as well as the Tim Curry version of Pennywise from the IT mini-series (1990). Annabelle, The Nun, and The Crooked Man join the collection from The Conjuring Universe, while the final figure of the six is Stripe from Gremlins (1984).
Each figure is instantly recognisable, with a paint scheme and design taken directly from the movies. From the initial preview, these figures look the business.
As standard, the figurines will be produced in a 1:16 scale, with the exception of Stripe. This figure will be in 1:8 scale, to reflect the small stature of the Gremlins.
No further details have been released at this time, so it is unclear how much each figure will cost or how vast the Horror Heroes collection will be. The fact that a minor character such as The Crooked Man is part of the initial six figures does suggest that obscure monsters, goblins, and ghouls could crop up in the future.
If this collection does prove popular, it could run and run. After all, there is a huge pool of horror characters to draw from, so expect to see this one popping up on shelves for a long time to come.
