Oh boy. Mezco Toyz announced that they will soon market a version of Annabelle, the terrifying doll introduced in the horror movie and set to return in the sequel. We’re unsure of how/what to feel about this!
What, you don’t know Annabelle? She was first featured in 2013’s “The Conjuring”. “The Conjuring” focused on the Warrens, a husband-and-wife paranormal detective team, and their attempt to help a family terrorised by a demon.
The prequel, “Annabelle”, which is due in theatres on 3rd October, focuses on the origin story of the eponymous doll.
Mezco Toyz stated the following on their Facebook page post:
Mezco Toyz Prepares To Thrill Fans With Annabelle and The Conjuring Merchandise
New York- Horror fans first entered the world of the paranormal investigation team the Warrens in 2013 with THE CONJURING. Terrified theatergoers couldn’t get enough of the twisted tale, helping it become one of the highest grossing horror films of all times according to Forbes magazine.
Annabelle, the doll so evil even the Warrens were afraid of her, now returns to the big screen in ANNABELLE, a film dedicated to her terrifying origin. First introduced in THE CONJURING, the upcoming ANNABELLE tells a tail filled with malevolent entities and killer cultists.
Mezco Toyz is no stranger to the world of the bizarre, the shapeless form in the shadows, and the whisper in the dark…so clearly there is no better choice for a producer of THE CONJURING and ANNABELLE merchandise.
Mezco’s award winning design team has already begun creating an Annabelle version of their world record holding Living Dead Dolls, and has many more scares tucked away for the future.
Mezco’s unholy collectibles of the damned will arrive in stores in late 2014. ANNABELLE arrives in theatres in October 2014.
Uh, well, the Annabelle doll isn’t something we (as adults) would find “joy” in playing with, let alone children. In fact, it’s more likely to make you (as an adult) want to sleep with the lights on. Or lock the doll in a closet. Because she/it is this much scary:
