My first living dead dolls came almost 6 months later, a week before I had turned 16. They were Jubilee and Killbaby (The two in the center), two dolls that I still have in my collection to this day (albeit their boxes and accessories have long since been lost).
Over the years, I would say I've owned over 40 different dolls, but sadly I had to sell a lot of them when the economy went into the shiter and we needed bill money. I now have some sort of day job and have been working on reclaiming my collection (I'm back up to around 28 dolls including 8 minis).
Let me tell you a bit about them so you can see how they've endured through the years and what makes them the top dog of the spooky doll world. The first living dead dolls sold in the US were all handmade by the creators, Ed Long and Damien Glonek (I would literally kill to have a handmade eggzorcist...that's the one in the middle). They were exclusive to Glonek's company Unearthly Possessions and at horror conventions along the East Coast. At one of these conventions, Mike "Mez" Markowitz, the founder of Mezco Toyz, bought one and Mezco contacted the two about manufacturing and distributing the dolls commercially (info from Wiki and the LDD site).

Maybe it's just me, but I like to think every horror fan should have at least one doll (two is better, twenty is don't give me your address or I'm jacking you). I seriously could ramble on even more, but this post is long enough so I shall leave you with a few places you MUST check out to get a better feel for these magnificent creatures of disgust and delight.
