Hero Collector to release 1:16 scale models of six iconic horror movie characters.
Warner Bros. Consumer Products and Hero Collector have combined forces to deliver to us six exquisite figurines. The chosen are some of Warner’s horror characters. This first wave includes Stripe From ‘Gremlins’, Annabelle from ‘Annabelle Comes Home’. The Crooked Man from ‘The Conjuring 2’. Valak from ‘The Nun’. And both versions of Pennywise the Clown from the ‘IT‘ movies, and the mini-series. They are due to be released in September and can be pre-ordered now.
Each figurine features:
hand-painted models sculpted in metallic resin at 1:16 scale – roughly 4-5 inches tall – each recreating a famous film fiend posed atop a display base. These figurines will retail at $24.95/£19.99, in collector-friendly window packaging.
THE LOOK OF THE FIGURINES
Below, we can see the figurines in all of their glory alongside the information for each one:
STRIPE (GREMLINS 1984)
Stripe (Gremlins, 1984): Mogwai make cute and cuddly pets but feed one after midnight, and you get a sick and twisted Gremlin! “Stripe” was the ringleader of these animatronic abominations – this figurine depicts him at 1:8 scale, signature tuft and all!
ANNABELLE (ANNABELLE COMES HOME 2019)
Annabelle (Annabelle Comes Home, 2019): She’s coming home… She first appeared in The Conjuring, where the demonically-possessed porcelain doll proved terrifying enough for her own film series. This figurine is perched atop her chair, in the white dress from Annabelle Comes Home.
Pennywise (IT, 1990): He’s every nightmare you’ve ever had. He’s your worst dream come true! Captured midway through his monstrous transformation, this version of the dancing clown was portrayed with palpable villainy by Tim Curry in the ‘90s adaptation of King’s novel.
PENNYWISE (IT: CHAPTER TWO 2019)
Pennywise (IT Chapter Two, 2019): He’ll feast on your flesh as he feeds on your fear! An otherworldly horror who took on countless forms to prey on children in Stephen King’s IT, this particular Pennywise was played by Bill Skarsgård in IT and IT: Chapter Two.
THE CROOKED MAN (THE CONJURING 2)
The Crooked Man (The Conjuring 2, 2014): There was a Crooked Man, and he walked a crooked mile… A demonic spirit conjured straight from nursery rhyme by a cursed children’s toy, the Crooked Man was played by creature actor Javier Botet, and is shown here cradling his signature umbrella.
VALAK (THE NUN 2018)
Valak (The Nun, 2018): Pray for forgiveness! An avatar of the goetic demon Valak, this eerie nun was sealed for centuries beneath an abbey, before the bombs of World War 2 released her… The figurine captures the likeness of actress Bonnie Aarons, fully transformed into the ghoulish abbess.
Ok, so I’m after ALL of these! They look outstanding and would look terrific displayed in a glass cabinet alongside my other collectible horror figures. I’m especially liking Stripe and Pennywise from the ‘IT‘ movies. But I anticipate that I’ll collect them all. They look incredibly cool and worthy of a purchase. So what are you waiting for? Get online and reserve yours right now!
