Who would have thought that an obscure horror movie hostess would become a franchise powerhouse that’s lasted over four decades? And it all started with a casting call for Movie Macabre. Elvira, the Mistress of the Dark, has outlasted nearly every other horror movie host by becoming a pop culture icon. And with that honor, we’re seeing more Elvira merchandise being announced.
NECA is continuing its line of Elvira figures with two new entries. The first is a new version of her 8″ tall action figures. Named the Red, Fright, and Boo figure, this Elvira is decked out in a shiny red version of her iconic and revealing dress. She’s light on accessories, but who needs them when you’ve got a great set of cans? Expect this one out in September.
However, if you’re looking for Elvira in her classic outfit, the hostess with the mostess is also available in a Toony Terrors boxed set. The set features Elvira lounging on her sofa in her black outfit, and Gonk is included, too! The exact size of this figure isn’t clear, but
“The devilishly delightful Cassandra Peterson has played the part of Elvira for more than 40 years with grace, humor and more than a little camp. NECA is proud to present this positively patriotic figure of the Mistress of the Dark in a sparkling red dress for your horror collection.”
Red, Fright, and Boo Elvira comes with the following:
- Winking head
- Skull and snake candle holder
- Figure stand
I wasn’t kidding when I said Elvira’s merchandise is still popular. Over the past couple of years, I’ve covered several collectibles, including the republication of her comic book. Other items we saw were a doll and an excellent statue from Mezco.
Unfortunately, I can’t ignore when Cassandra Peterson called fans trash on Twitter.
