Nothing like surfing around the internet and promptly getting a kick in the nuts when you see some horror movie action figures that you wish you would have bought. And to make the nut pain even stronger, you see that they’re selling on eBay for 4-5 times the amount that they originally sold for. Yeah, I’m a bit of a nerd when it comes to collecting horror movie memorabilia, but I embrace it. And when I saw that there was actually an Evil Ed figure from the original Fright Night that was made, I immediately braced my balls for the impact.
Yes, that is an actual Evil Ed figure done in the style of the old school Mego figures from the 70’s. The company Monsters In Motion apparently did a line of Fright Night figures and sold them on their site, with all of them being limited to under 60 pieces each. Obviously they’re sold out now, but the good news is that you can buy them on eBay for outrageous over-inflated prices! Woohoo! Included in the lot were Evil Ed, Jerry Dandridge, Peter Vincent, and Charlie Brewster.
Now, I’ve never been a huge fan of the Mego-style figures, but I am a hardcore Fright Night lover that would jump at the chance to own one of these at a reasonable price. My first choice would have to be Evil Ed, with Peter Vincent coming in a close second. The Jerry Dandridge and Charlie Brewster figures actually came in a two-pack, so you could have hours of fun with them together and pose them anyway you want to. Case in point: If you ever wanted to insinuate that Charlie is giving Jerry a blowjob, you can! Just check the pic below. Considering Charlie’s expression, vampires seem to be packing.
