Welcome to AFJ's 31 Days of Horror Figures 2019. For the month of October, we will be spotlighting the very best of the macabre, bizarre, monstrous, and villainous action figures the industry has to offer. There will be both old and new figures here and perhaps even a significance to why we picked that figure for that day (and perhaps not). This is NOT a ranking list, just full-blown horror fun for the greatest month of the year.
We celebrate today, October 4th, the official wide release of director George A. Romero's seminal film, Night of the Living Dead with this figure. So, for its 51st birthday, we honor the film with Amok Time's release of the 12-Inch Deluxe Collectors Edition action figure of Ben.
Yes, this isn't a monster figure but one of a hero in a monster movie. The likeness of Duane Jones as Ben is pretty spot on and fitting addition to the Night of the Living Dead line that Amok Time released. Both Ben and the "Graveyard Zombie" (sen last year's entry) fetch a hefty sum on the secondary market. Clearly, the niche market, zombie and horror fans, love the property but not enough to warrant a mass production of this exquisite 12-inch figure. This makes Ben highly sought after and worth adding to our 31 Days of Horror Figures!
