Property: Halloween (1978)
Availability: Secondary Market
Welcome to AFJ's 31 Days of Horror Figures. 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. #AFJ4LIFE
Today marks the anniversary release of Halloween IV (1988). We decided to spotlight a Michael Myers from the first film, which is far superior to its sequels. Not only is this from one of the best death scenes in the original film but it also silences P.J. Soles’ Lynda from saying “totally” for the duration. Thank you, Michael, for this reprieve.
One of the many issues, with Michael Myers, as an action figure, is that there is not a whole you can do with him. There isn't an unmasked version. Nor is there a talking version. NECA did release an "Evolution of Evil" two-pack and Loomis two-pack with a great staircase/ front porch. All of those come with Michael Myers wearing his blue work suit, black boots, and the William Shatner mask. Thus the reasoning (and for killing Lynda) as to why Michael Myers as "Bob the Ghost" joins are our 31 Days of Horror Figures. It's simply more fun than this horror action figure should be allowed to have.
