McFarlane Toys is Reviving Its Movie Maniacs and Tortured Souls Action Figure Lines!
I don’t know about you, but one of my favorite action figure lines from McFarlane Toys was its Movie Maniacs. This line was big in the 90s. McFarlane Toys went out and licensed some of the most iconic characters from horror and sci-fi and then created some of the most badass collectible figures for characters such as Freddy Krueger, Jason Voorhees, Evil Dead, Chucky, Leatherface, and more.
We’ve now learned that McFarlane toys is bringing back that line as well as the Tortured Souls line which was also pretty cool. In an interview with IGN, Todd McFarlane said:
“So we’re gonna go back to our origins and we’re gonna go, hey, for all you people who like Tortured Souls? There’s gonna be more. For all you people who like some of the Movie Maniacs? There’s gonna be more. But even the new — the stuff we just created, like Dragons? More. Spawn? More. Twisted Tales? More.”
For those of you not familiar with Tortured Souls, those figures focused on the horrific creations of iconic horror master Clive Barker. This series focused more on original creations that looked like they were ripped from the Hellraiser films.
It was also revealed that McFarlane Toys will begin selling direct to consumer because all of the stores that they’ve been selling them in have been going out of business over the years.
I can’t wait to see what characters the next line of Movie Maniacs action figures consists of!
