Accessorising Angel

Bizarre bits accompany new vampire doll.

Toymakers Sideshow Collectibles have announced their oddest action figure yet - a 12" Angel from his pre-vampire days.

The figure - sculpted by the fabulously-monikered Oluf W. Hartvigson - is amusing enough in itself, what with its Darla bite detail, embroidered vest and slop pants. What tickled us most, however, were the accessories.

For your $40 you get the following fab extras:

  • The Orb of Thesulah (a bit early, but...)
  • Several small animal bone piles (eh?)
  • Ceremonial candles (nice for ambience, but why?)
  • Ceremonial skull with pillow (what on Earth?)

Sadly you have to provide your own cursing gypsies and centuries of brooding self-pity, but it's a pretty interesting package nonetheless.

The figure is limited to 750 pieces and will be available at local sci fi emporia in a month or two.
