Jack Torrance from The Shining and Lucy in her witch costume. Weird, huh? Let's hop on and see how Gage fares in The Scream of 31 Days of Toy Terror...
Height: 3 1/2 inches
Articulation: Swivel head.
Height: 1 3/4ths inches
Non-Scalper Price: $10 dollars
* Like Danny Torrance yesterday, Gage may be a POP! that takes you a second to recognize. It's all there, though: The weird blue suit he was buried in, the wicked looking eyes, and the scalpel. Oh, yes, the scalpel is here. Gage is a pretty creepy looking POP!, he stands well on his own, and he of course features the swivel head that most other POP! vinyls have, too.
* The likeness on Gage Creed (no relation to Apollo) isn't bad here, especially because of the very menacing looking eyes, and the bloody streak across the head.
* Gage Creed is dressed in the little blue suit which he was buried in, which, believe me, is disturbing on so many levels. Seriously, since having a parent I'm definitely way more sensitive to that kind of stuff. I have a daughter, so the 2019 Pet Sematary was excruciating for me to sit through until the daughter came back. When I realized that she was mean, made nasty faces, and spun around breaking stuff all the time, though, I wasn't phased: That's a normal day with a little kid.
* Yes, Gage has the scalpel. The freaking scalpel. It's a bit oversized, but otherwise it'd be way too small to make out, wouldn't it? It's got some blood on it (as does Gage's hand) and it's just looking for an Achilles's tendon to cut! Yeesh! That makes me cringe just thinking about it!
* While you might consider him an accessory, the box gives Church the cat equal billing, so I'm counting him as a second character. Two for one, right? Church (no relation to the chicken place) has menacing yellow yes, blood on his head, and he stinks. OK, he doesn't really stink. He should, though. I demand more scented POP! vinyls.
These are the first two action figures of Gage Creed and Church that I've reviewed. For more POP! Movies check out the following:
