Diamond Select Toys has been killing it with their 7-inch scale Ghostbusters action figures.

In the spring, the humans will be menaced by series 5 entries like the Library Ghost, Taxi Zombie and Terror Dog!
THE CURSE OF MICHAEL MYERS FIGURE
Even with the Producer’s Cut officially available, THE CURSE OF MICHAEL MYERS isn’t exactly the most popular Halloween film. And yet, the folks at ThreeZero still created one killer looking sixth scale figure based on the film. The 12.5-inch-tall piece comes with a cloth costume and a film-accurate mask. The $150 figure can be pre-ordered now.
If you’re looking for over two feet of lycanthropic goodness, then Pop Culture Shock has the statue for you! The 26-inch-tall THE HOWLING statue will set you back about $475, but what better gift can you imagine for a fan of Joe Dante’s 1981 horror comedy? This one can be ordered now and will ship next October in time for Halloween.
Not every horror collectible needs to break the bank or take up half your living room. That’s where Funko’s Horror Classics Mystery Minis come in. At under $10 a piece, these blind boxed figures cover everything from JAWS and THE SHINING to the Universal Monsters and Elvira! Buy a whole box and give away the ones you don’t want!
Star Ace celebrates one of the genre’s most legendary performers in his most iconic role with the SCARS OF DRACULA Christopher Lee 1:6 scale figure. This Hammer-inspired bloodsucker ships in December and comes with alternate faces and hands plus a sword, knife bat and even a classy blood-filled wine glass!
HELLRAISER LIFESIZE BUST
Delve into Clive Barker’s most popular creation in the form of a lifesize bust from Hollywood Collectible Group based on Doug Bradley’s Pinhead. From the top of the highest nail to the bottom of the Puzzle Box-themed base, this piece stands a whopping 30 inches tall and will ship early next year. HCG has two version available, the regular one and a site-exclusive take that comes with brass pins recreating the actual filmed color and a metal plaque. Both versions cost about $800.
McFarlane Toys basically invented the hardcore horror collectible action figure back in the ’90s and continue in that vein especially for fans of AMC’s THE WALKING DEAD. In addition to the ongoing line of 5 inch figures, the company also incorporated characters like Abraham, Rick, Michonne and Carl into the 7-inch Color Tops line. Plus, there’s also the 10-inch deluxe figures of Glenn and the gang, statues and even a Lucille prop replica!
NECA reigns supreme as the collectible company with the greatest representation of horror action figures these days. Their deluxe figures are rad, but so is the growing line of 8-inch retro figures. In addition to stalwarts like Freddy, Jason and Leatherface, the line also includes Chop Top, Ash Williams, Ghostface, Captain Spaulding and even multiple versions of Iron Maiden’s mascot Eddie plus Snake Plissken, Rocky Balboa and other non-horror folks.
When it comes to 80s icons, few captured our imaginations and ruled our nightmares like Freddy Krueger. Sideshow Collectibles perfectly captures Robert Englund’s on-screen presence with this nearly 22-inch-tall Premium Format Figure statue that comes sporting cloth versions of the iconic sweater and hat, plus that always-menacing glove. As with most Sideshow statues, there’s also a site-exclusive version that comes with a swap-out hand holding the green soul swirl.
Finally, feast your eyes on Dr. Frankenstein’s greatest creation! This black and white take on Frankenstein’s monster from the classic Universal Monster film looks like he shambled right off of the screen and into your collection. Mezco’s One:12 Collective line of figures utilizes methods usually reserved for foot-tall figures like cloth costumes and multiple appendages and accessories, but uses them in the 6-inch scale. The results are amazing looking figures like this one that perfectly capture the subject while saving cash and space, something every collector can appreciate.
