A Brief History of Werewolves in Plastic

A. Quinton — May. 13th 2010


Here’s a run-down on werewolf toys and figures on “Idle Hands”, the awesome toy blog of Paul Nomad (who also writes for Dread Central.com). Paul showcases 11 werewolf figures, including Vereticus from Stan Winston’s “Blood Wolves” line, one of the nightmare wolves from “An American Werewolf in London”, and Yellow Submarine’s Howling Wolfinica, which I may or may not have owned in 2002. It’s interesting to see how many different ways the werewolf has been interpreted in plastic (although I think McFarlane should have dialed back the “grotesque” a bit). Check it out!

    I tell you, if they had made poseable figure for AmWolf and the Howling back in the day, I would have been the happiest little kid in the world.
