 Wonder if there is a whole line of depraved killer dolls out there. Bonus sets with accys? Dahmer with a fridge? Gacey with a clown outfit?

Back in the 90's, they came out with serial killer trading cards. I thought is was distasteful. I have never advocated for real life killers getting any sort of memorabillia made of them.

I can appreciate the artistry and I believe it artistic freedom and representation, but this is too much.

There is an issue of Rue Morgue magazine from 2006. The article is about an independent toy company which produced Serial Killer action figures. I doubt if the company is still producing or even active.

I recall seeing this shared before. May or may not have been on this site.

Spectre Studios. In he 90's there was a serial killer board game. A store here carried it and got picketed. There response was if it exists, someone will buy it, so we will sell it. The point of capitalism is to make money. If you don't like it, don't buy it, but you do not have the right to tell others that they don't have that freedom of choice.

I hate to say something loathsome (which I'm about to do), but this Gein figure would look great next to the Mego-style Norman Bates and Leatherface figures. Both were inspired by his murders. That said, I still wouldnt buy it.

Well......I guess my response won't be popular to what you just wrote. I would absolutely want an Ed Gein figure.

If McFarlane toys can produce a Jack the Ripper and Bathory figure, well.....I guess a Gein figure isn't all to out-of-question.

This goes back quite a few years. I was at the Kane County toy show in IL,I want to say early 2000's. There was some heavy heated reactions because there was a dealer that was selling 1/6 military figures including...Adolph Hitler. Some people were giving the dealer a pretty hard time while others snatched it up pretty quick. I really don't have any firm opinion and can see both sides of the issue. I have seen a few small plastic toy Hitlers and Mussolini's. Mostly from the 70's.

To be honest, I would want one roo. As long as the killers and their families don't make a profit, I'm ok with historical figures of notorious criminals. This Gein one is nicely done (though, the face reminds me of Bill Murray for some reason).

I could see getting a Hitler figure, in 1/18 scale. I could pose him getting beat up by Captain America or Wonder Woman. Good guys have to have bad guys.

If I had $75 to just blow I would have bought the Hitler figure for target practice with one of my ,177 caliber air rifles. Then set up a few 12" Gi Joes stomping on him. BTW,I'm pretty sure there was also a Himmler and Goering figure as well.

Kickstarter has a WW2 soldiers line right now. Having these with some SS guys and the Invaders would make a really great diorama. I have all of the Invaders and Liberty Legion in 1/18 scale, so it would be easy.
