McFarlane Toys Movie Maniacs was big in the 90s. McFarlane Toys went out and licenses some of the most iconic characters from horror and sci-fi and then created some of the most awesome collectible figures for characters such as Jason Voorhees, Evil Dead, Chucky, Freddy Krueger, Leatherface, and more.
Now McFarlane toys are bringing back that line as well as the Tortured Souls line which was also super cool. In an interview with IGN, Todd McFarlane said:
“So we’re gonna go back to our origins and we’re gonna go, hey, for all you people who like Tortured Souls? There’s gonna be more. For all you people who like some of the Movie Maniacs? There’s gonna be more. But even the new — the stuff we just created, like Dragons? More. Spawn? More. Twisted Tales? More.”
For those of you not familiar with Tortured Souls, those figures focused on the horrific creations of iconic horror master Clive Barker. This series focused more on original creations that looked like they were ripped from the Hellraiser films.
McFarlane Toy will begin selling directly to the consumers because all of the stores that they’ve been selling them in have been going out of business over the years.
