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
In many ways, he was our first zombie. The "Cemetery Zombie" is that special kind of horror, the one where it could be real, you hope it is not real and is certainly going to be real. He is also associated, forever with the phrase "They're coming to get you Barabra". Who is the actor behind this, the most iconic of screen zombies? The actor's name was Bill Hinzman.
We celebrate today, the official wide release of director George A. Romero's seminal film, Night of the Living Dead with this figure. So, for its 50th birthday, we honor the film with Amok Time's release of the 12 Inch Deluxe Collectors Edition Cemetery Zombie Action Figure - Executive Replicas.
Check out all the heads old Bill came with below. Where can you find him? Most toy shows or comic cons will be a safe bet but on the online secondary market, we found several. Happy zombie hunting, Junkies!
