Over the past few years, the folks at NECA Toys have produced high-quality collectible action figures for most of the great horror icons. Freddy, Jason, Michael, Leatherface. Even Chucky. They’ve all received the deluxe toy treatment. But one big name was always missing from the bunch. And now, she finally has her own NECA figure at long last. We’re talking about the one and only Elvira, Mistress of the Dark.
The Movie Macabre hostess will arrive on toy shelves in a new 8″ clothed action figure, just in time to celebrate her 40th anniversary as a pop culture icon. You will soon be able to display Elvira right next to all of her favorite monsters. All of these slashers and creatures of the night might be the kings of Halloween, but Elvira is the undisputed queen. You can check out the first images right here, as well as the official description down below:
“Celebrating 40 years of Elvira, Mistress of the Dark! The devilishly delightful Cassandra Peterson has played the part of Elvira for 40 years with grace, humor and more than a little camp. NECA is proud to present this fiendishly fantastic figure for your horror collection. The 8” Elvira action figure is fully articulated and features tailored fabric clothing, plus plenty of accessories… alternate winking head, skull, chalice, figure stand, and her signature dagger, which slips into a loop on the belt.”
This is actually not the first Elvira toy from NECA, although it is technically their first Elvira action figure. She originally joined the lineup as part of their Toony Terror line. These were Saturday morning animated versions of all of your favorite horror icons. But as cool as those were, this new one takes the cake. The new Elvira figure is set to hit store shelves around the first quarter of 2022. For more images, be sure to click on this link.
