Apologies for the lame ‘stealing breath’ reference in the post title. But anyway, if you’re familiar with Retroband (The company that has made numerous awesome horror themed figures over the last few years), then you should know that they have an offshoot project entitled Deadly Delivery going on where mini figures have been produced of everything from the Necronomicon book of Evil Dead fame to Belial from Basket Case. And coming soon……….drumroll please……….The little troll from Cat’s Eye!
Alright! No word on what color it will be painted or anything, but I would be cool with that clay-colored version personally. This was posted on the Deadly Delivery Instagram page a few weeks ago, so if you want to follow the updates then you can do so HERE. On a sidenote, I really need to revisit Cat’s Eye soon. It was always a favorite of mine growing up, and holds a special place in my PG-13 horror heart. Stay tuned for more info on the mini troll figure from Deadly Delivery and make sure to hold your breath after you order it. Had to get one more lame ass reference in there.
After artist Aaron Moreno released his Farmer Vincent ‘Motel Hell‘ figure via a special lottery a while back, I thought that I had seen it all as far as what he would come up with next. And then I get wind that Aaron and his Retroband brand have taken it straight to the sewers and to 1984’s guilty pleasure of mine, C.H.U.D. for his next release.
The figure has been unveiled and looks great! It even has UV glowing lights and the package card alone is enough to get the excitement juices flowing! In the past, Retroband’s figures have been very limited, but no word on how limited this C.H.U.D. release will be or how much it will cost. EDIT: 55 figures will be available at $80 a pop. They go on sale today (4/30) at 7PM CST so follow Retroband on Instagram for more details HERE.
The last minute Xmas horror gift to end all last minute Xmas horror gifts is here: a Billy action figure from Silent Night Deadly Night. Yes, it’s for real and yes it will sell out in less than 2 seconds. If you’re not already familiar with Retroband, you should be. They make the horror toys that you always wanted as a kid, but thought would never become a reality. And this Sunday, an action figure based on the Billy character from 1984’s cult slasher Silent Night Deadly Night will indeed become a reality.
Granted, that’s just the package card above that the figure will appear in, but trust me, the figure will be just as awesome. But check out the detail up there! And if that doesn’t get you into the Christmas spirit, I don’t know what will. Other than some delicious fruitcake from your Aunt Cindy of course. These figures are going to be extremely limited and should sell for around $60. Go over to Retroband’s Instagram page HEREfor more details on the Silent Night Deadly Night figure and to keep you salivating in the meantime, here’s the back of the package card below including a pretty accurate drawing of Linnea Quigley’s 1984 breasts.
