Toy Fair 2012: Diamond Select Toys to Host a Mad Monster Party | Horror Movie, DVD, & Book Reviews, News, Interviews at Dread Central
Hell Yeah!Diamond Select Toys has announced the latest property to join its horror line-up of fully poseable action figures: Mad Monster Party, the classic film by Rankin/Bass which brought all of pop culture's most famous monsters to the big screen in 1967.
From the Press Release:
Diamond Select Toys knows monsters -- after all, the Maryland-based collectibles company has been making toys and statues of vampires, aliens and werewolves for almost 13 years.
"The Rankin/Bass Christmas specials have gotten a lot of merchandise over the last decade, but there have been almost zero collectibles made for Mad Monster Party," said Chuck Terceira, director of Diamond Select Toys. "Now that the movie has been released on DVD and seen by a whole new audience for the first time, it feels like the right time to give fans new and old the toys they deserve. The film combines all of the classic monster archetypes with the timeless appeal of Rankin/Bass animation, and we want our toy line to represent the figures you see on the screen as closely as possible."
