Buy a figure, help fund a horror sequel

Jan 31 // Scarecroodle

There are better causes but most don't involve figures

Leslie Vernon is name virtually unknown to non-horror fans, lacking the brand recognition afforded to icons like Jason Voorhees, Freddy Krueger, Chucky, and so forth. However, much to my surprise, this little known future horror icon is getting his own figure thanks to DeConte Figures & Collectibles. And the bigger surprise? That a portion of the proceeds are going to Glen Echo Entertainment to help fund a sequel to Behind the Mask: The Rise of Leslie Vernon.

DeConte's Leslie Vernon stands around seven inches tall. Although the figure is listed as being fully articulated, the actual jointing appears somewhat limited. Despite this shortcoming, it's still really cool to see a lesser known horror character receive some attention especially considering this is one guy you'd never expect would receive merchandise. DeConte's Leslie Vernon can be pre-ordered for US$25. Big Bad Toy Store lists it as being a March release although it may be available earlier if you buy directly from DeConte Figures & Collectibles.
