Horror movie action figure icons for Halloween!

October 31st will soon be upon us so here's a timely look at some spooky vintage action figures and a few of the best horror movie icons to have been immortalized as toys over the years. Happy Halloween!

Hannibal Lecter

NECA have to be hands down one of the best action figure producers for really nailing movie likenesses. The wonderful 7 inch Silence of the Lambs action figure of Anthony Hopkins in his Academy Award-winning performance as Hannibal Lecter was issued as part of their Cult Classics Series 5 and is an amazingly creepy figure.

Rather than a conventional stand, Hannibal the Cannibal comes strapped in a transport gurney and has a removable mask.

Michael Jackson in "Thriller"

As the movie documentary which charts the preparations for what should have been his comeback performance This Is It opens worldwide to rave reviews,  fans have also been clamouring for Michael Jackson collectibles and action figures. This forthcoming fully poseable 12 inch (1/6 scale) MJ action figure from Hot Toys is taken from the 1983 Thriller music video - okay, so it wasn't strictly a movie, but at 14 minutes it saw music videos take a new direction, and with An American Werewolf in London director John Landis behind the camera, felt like a genuine film.

Perfect for Halloween, the action figure will come with an interchangeable zombie head and an extra zombie suit.

Michael Myers in "Halloween"

If I had to choose my personal scariest movie character I'd have to plump for serial killer Michael Myers from the original and best 1978 Halloween movie by John Carpenter. McFarlane Toys released this 6 inch Halloween action figure as part of its Movie Maniacs Series 2 in 1999. The figure was packaged with a diorama background scene with a movie poster replica and accessories.

Béla Lugosi

No round up of horror movie icons would be complete without a mention of the maestro himself, Bela Lugosi! The Hungarian actor's name is synonymous with that of his most famous role as Count Dracula in Tod Browning's classic 1931 Universal Pictures horror flick Dracula, based on Bram Stoker's novel.
