Dolls have always had a slight glimmer of creepiness about them, but Mezco Toyz’ new offering may have just stepped this up a notch.
The team is no stranger to the world of the bizarre and already boasts an arsenal of horrifying collectibles, including the infamous Freddy Krueger.
Now, the firm has revealed a new line of merchandise based on the popular horror film, The Conjuring and its spin-off Annabelle.
First introduced in The Conjuring, Annabelle is a doll whose evil nature may only be rivaled by Chucky. The hellish toy is now set to make its big screen return in the forthcoming Annabelle movie, a tale of the doll’s origin.
Mezco’s award-winning design team has already begun creating an Annabelle version of its Living Dead Dolls collection and reports that it has ‘many more scares tucked away for the future.’
The first wave of Annabelle merchandise will arrive in stores in late 2014, coinciding with the film’s release on October 3rd.
