We live in a world of movie merchandising, and Hellraiser has a pretty solid opportunity in launching a line of puzzle cubes… and maybe even some home body-piercing kits. After all, this is a series of films in which the plot revolves around a puzzle cube, and the added bonus of making a home version is that you can play with it all you want AND not worry about summoning sadomasochistic demons who want to torture you through every possible means until your spirit screams.
Welp, only took 29 years but Mezco is finally on it:
It may not literally tear your soul apart, Pinhead-style, but I suspect more than a few hairs might be torn out at the difficulty inherent to solving a Rubik’s-style cube that’s based on patterns rather than colors. And no, this isn’t the exact style of puzzle the box was in the movies, but let’s just say there was more than a little motion-picture magic involved in making that box do the things it did. For $13, you’re not going to unlock all the secrets of pleasure and pain, but you will earn yourself some bragging rights, as well as a cooler puzzle cube than the ones all the other kids have.
So now that that’s out of the way, when are we getting an official Hellraiser home piercing kit? Kidding. Not kidding. Maybe. Look! More photos of the cube in our gallery below!
