If you’re anything like me, you love your favorite monsters served with a side of cute. A spoonful of sugar makes the toxic ooze go down, right? Well, if you love spooky creatures and famous villains presented in their most adorable form, then the good folks at Mezco Toyz have got you covered.
Since 1998, Mezco’s Living Dead Dolls series has been making all things Gothic and spooky into 10-inch dolls which come in their own pint sized coffins. Although most of the Living Dead Dolls are original creations, over the past few years they have taken on some of the biggest characters in the horror genre and given them a pint-sized makeover.
Some of the latest horror icons that have just gone up for pre-sale on Mezcotoys.com are little versions of Alex from Stanley Kubrick's classic A Clockwork Orange, the mall loving zombies from George Romero's original Dawn of the Dead, the deadite-possessed Ash from Evil Dead 2, and Pinhead from the Hellraiser films (including a glow-in-the-dark variant version).
The regular Living Dead Dolls series continues with wave 33, which gives fans spooky versions of turn of the century France with Moulin
Rouge Morgue. And still available is Living Dead Dolls wave 32, which presents the spooky tykes as vintage Halloween trick or treaters, from back when kid's costumes were disturbing as all get out.
But maybe the coolest new toy being offered up by Mezco is a wee version of DC Comics' adorable loon Harley Quinn, in her original jester outfit from Batman: The Animated Series. The character celebrates her 25th anniversary this year, and having a cute little version of the deranged Dr. Harleen Quinzel would be the perfect way to celebrate. And yes, she even comes with her own giant mallet. You can see images of each of these new dolls in our gallery below. And to pre-order them, be sure to head on over to Mezco.toyz.com.
