31 Days of Toy Terror Returns: Vampire from Classic Friends Bobble Heads: Holiday Friends by Entertainment Earth

The terrifying thought of having your blood drained from your body is expedited by the frightening vampire...

   I'm looking at another bobble head from Entertainment Earth's Classic Favorites Bobble Heads line: The Vampire! The Vampire comes from the Holiday Friends subset and was another figure I picked up in August as part of an awesome sale at Entertainment Earth. Seriously, I paid $2 for this guy! You can never have enough Halloween decorations and the nice thing about these bobble heads is that I can display them on my regular horror shelves in my action figure room throughout the rest of the year. Ready for another vampire review? Then join me after the break...


 The Facts:

Height: 7 inches

Articulation: Bobbling Head

Accessories: None

Non-Scalper Price: $13 dollars
The Positives:

*What a great vampire headsculpt! When I look at this I actually see a brilliant bloodsucking amalgam of a few different vampires. He kind of looks like a mixture between Christopher Lee, Bela Lugosi, and the vampire from Mad Monster Party. I approve! He's dressed in a fairly classic vampire costume although in place of a medallion he has an ascot. A frilly ascot. I'm not knocking it at all; it's actually pretty trendy.

 *All of these bobble heads have based with a word or brief phrase on them. The Vampire's simply says "Batty." I can respect that. Maybe if you're having a crazy day and feeling like things are a little out of control you could look at this bobble head and say, "Gee...'batty.' I know this guy knows what I'm talking about!"

 The Negatives:

* My only real problem is that there's a chip on the Vampire's collar. The packaging seems fairly safe and secure so I'm not sure where this came from. For $2 I'm not overly disappointed but if you're paying retail price you'll want to give this guy a good once over.
  Is there really any reason that you wouldn't want a Vampire bobble head adorning your mantle? That's what I thought. This is a nice classic looking vampire bobble head that has quite a bit of charm to it. If you're a vampire collector or just someone who loves stuff like this taking up every bit of usable space in your home, the Vampire isn't a bad buy. I'd give him a Good and a 1/2 rating overall. I didn't even realize that Entertainment Earth was producing these guys but I'm glad I found out and picked a few up.
