The next offering, also from Living Dead Dolls, is The Creature from the Black Lagoon. I love the sculpt of his hand and feet and think his body suit clothing is adorable! When I heard they were doing him I wondered how and if they'd do a "naked" doll, but I think the idea of the suit is ingenious. No date has been given yet on his release except for Fall of 2014.
Another Living Dead Dolls offering will be the Headless Horseman. It seems like two versions of the doll will be released, the regular one on the left and an exclusive edition that from what I've read not only comes with a badass plus horse as pictured, but will have a glow in the dark head (hence the slight color variation in the two)! They haven't said much about how many exclusive editions will be released or where to get them yet, but both versions are expected out sometime in the Summer of 2014
And now to they toy I've seen probably the most people talking about online, The Psycho Mother Roto Plush doll! Now I've seen a lot of psycho collectibles. I even have the LDD set (not surprisingly). But I've NEVER seen a doll or collectible of his Mother!!! She's astounding and if you google other images, she's actually quite wonderfully detailed! This is a MUST HAVE for horror fans and is set to be released sometime in 2014 (you know as soon as I find out, you will too!!!)
And now to my all time favorite subject to talk (more like gush) about, CHUCKY! And he's hitting it BIG at the toy fair this year! The 15 inch mega scale Chucky to your right in the above photo states 2014, but I already have him...so I'm assuming this meaning a second run of him will be released this year (which means more people will get a chance to see how amazing this doll really is. I'm telling you from experience he is FANTASTIC!). In the middle is the stylized roto figure that will be out in August and is already available for pre-order on Mezcotoyz.com (I must wait for my next pay but I shall be pre-ordering). And to the Left is...well an image of what could be my newest favorite doll! Mezco is working on another mega scale doll but without the scars...and he will talk!!! The doll is still pending approval, but how can you not want this! He looks pretty similar to the Sideshow dolls from a few years ago, but you can't find that one of under $300 so here's to the hope of owning a great non-scarred Chucky for less than half that!!!
And for even more Mezco/Chucky fun, look for the awesome Chucky pillow/plush box to the right! Now available for pre-order on Mezcotoyz.com and set to be released in May, this will be the perfect match for the Chucky blanket I got for Christmas!!! And to the left is the talking plushies of Chucky and his bride Tiffany! These are set to come out sometime in the summer and will feature the actual actors voices. Not sure what quotes they'll say, but how cute are they!!!
And of course, Living Dead Dolls has their own stupendous take on Chucky. Last year, they released a solo Chucky doll. This year, his wife joins the party! For anyone who missed out on getting Chucky last year, Mezco has released a Chucky/Bride set seen on the right. They have already sold out on the Mezco site, but they are now available in stores like F.Y.E. and some Spencers and all over Ebay. I got my set just 2 days ago in the mail (pre-ordered) and they are GLORIOUS in person!!! She is the show stopper of the set for sure in her pure white wedding gown...but wait...why is that Tiff alone on the left and covered in blood? Because there's an EXCLUSIVE VERSION!!! Look below...
So there you have it, my favorite selections from this years Toy Fair. There are so many wonderful things for horror fans to look forward to this year, so start saving your pennies up!
