New ‘Halloween’ Michael Myers Figure by Trick or Treat Studios – A Tribute to the Horror Classic

by admin
Horror Film Collection

There’s no denying that John Carpenter’s 1978 ‘Halloween’ is often the start and end point of discussions surrounding horror classics. As we approach its 45th anniversary in 2023, the film’s chilling ambiance remains as impactful as ever. The terrifying character of Michael Myers, the infamous babysitter murderer, has consistently been in the public eye in recent years due to the continuation of the ‘Halloween’ legacy trilogy, reminding audiences of The Boogeyman’s haunting power. To commemorate this blood-soaked franchise milestone, Trick or Treat Studios has introduced their eerie new Michael Myers figure.

Part of their “Scream Giants” collection, this eight-inch figure displays The Boogeyman dressed in the iconic blue mechanic jumpsuit and emotionless white William Shatner mask. His right hand tightly holds the franchise’s iconic kitchen knife, while the left is designed interchangeable – either empty, in a casual pose, or knife-wielding. This nuanced pose has been recurrent throughout the 1978 movie, as Myers trails Laurie Strode around Haddonfield. While many studios have created Michael Myers figures before, this one effectively encapsulates the atmosphere of the original Carpenter film, the detailing making it a very screen-accurate Myers. Plus, Trick or Treat Studios has a reputable history of ‘Halloween’ figures, including 12-inch figures of every version of Michael and his mask from the franchise, such as the original, Rob Zombie’s Halloween, and Halloween Ends.

Night of Return!

While ‘Halloween’ didn’t originate the slasher genre, it undoubtedly honed it. The film’s release in 1978 introduced audiences to a narrative both remarkably simple yet deeply unnerving. Its suspenseful atmosphere, outstanding performances, and Carpenter’s creative direction paired with a legendary musical score left a lasting impression. Today, despite the arrival and departure of franchises like ‘A Nightmare on Elm Street’ and ‘Friday the 13th’, none have managed to capture the enigma of Michael Myers. Since ‘Halloween’s premiere, the franchise has released 12 sequels/reboots/remakes, some notable ones being Halloween 4: The Return of Michael Myers, Halloween (2018), and Halloween Kills. Following the alleged demise of Michael Myers in the original sequel ‘Halloween II’, the franchise veered towards an anthology with ‘Halloween III: Season of the Witch’. The film was initially criticized for its deviation from Michael as the lead, but has since gained cult status. In the current film sequence, Michael was apparently finally defeated in the underrated ‘Halloween Ends’. Yet, as any horror fan will tell you, “you can’t kill the boogeymen”.
