A custom action figure based on the 1982 slasher film, ‘Pieces’ by Dan Polydoris of Death By Toys. $40 (two available).
Dan Polydoris, the founder of Death By Toys, has been creating small numbers of action figures based on films from the 80s since 2010, showing a particular affinity for the horror genre. Polydoris’ plastic characters quickly became super popular with collectors, especially those who, like Polydoris, dig on the “strange, offbeat, and absurd.” For his latest batch of action figures, Polydoris focused on eight different films from the decade including things like 1980’s Maniac, the 1981 Canuck cult classic, Happy Birthday to Me, and 1982’s Pieces starring the great Christopher George. If you just said “YES” to all of that, then listen up because I’m going to tell you how you *might* be able to make one of Polydoris’ newest rare figures yours.
Starting today, Thursday, July 20th at 12:30 CST, a small number of the figures will be available for purchase at the Death By Toys online store, and when I say small numbers I mean really small numbers. For example, Polydoris only made two of the hilarious killer “Kebab Playsets” from Happy Birthday to Me which will run you 40 bucks each. The packaging is also pretty fantastic as it uses images from the original back-in-the-day VHS tape cover art. Nice. All eight figures along with their various prices posted below. Happy hunting!
The hysterical ‘Happy Birthday to Me’ “Kebab Playset.” $40 (two available).
My absolute favorite of the bunch based on the 1980 film ‘Maniac,’ the “Bloody Scalp.” 30 bucks each (five available).
An action figure based on ‘The Mutilator.’ $50 (only one available).
An action figure of “Russ Thorn” (played by actor Michael Villella), the killer armed with a handy cordless drill in the 1982 film ‘Slumber Party Massacre.’ $60 (one available).
A creepy action figure based on the slasher film shot all around Boston, 1981’s ‘Night School.’ $50 (two available).
Another fantastic figure by Polydoris of “Cropsy,” the terrifying serial killer (brought to “life” by FX master Tom Savini) from the 1981 film “The Burning.” $50 (three available).
A figure based on the “Mountain Twins” the machette-weilding murderers (played by actor John Hunsaker) from the 1981 film ‘Just Before Dawn.’
The famous “Shish Kebab” death scene from ‘Happy Birthday to Me.’
