Figure: Re-Animator Herbert West 8-Inch Cloth Action Figure
Series: NECA's 8-Inch Cloth Action Figures
Availability: Order Here
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
Re-Animator (1985), directed by Stuart Gordon, based on the novel by H.P. Lovecraft, stars Jeffrey Combs as Herbert West. West is a medical student who has a plan to cheat death. West will do anything to succeed in his experiments and will let no one stand in his way. This macabre tale has a fantastic sense of humor that allows you to let your guard down only to be terrified all over again. Thankfully, the brilliant minds at NECA, Randy Falk, I'm looking at you, greenlighted at 8-inch Dr. West for the action figure collecting community.
Not only do we love this rendition of the, now, legendary Jeffrey Combs, but it also comes with the re-animated cat and the head of Dr. Carl Hill (David Gale). If you think this is too much crazy for your action figure world, then you clearly haven't seen Re-Animator. This is a new release and available online now to purchase at Entertainment Earth.
