Serial Killer Action figures!!
 
Hi everyone!

I'm a big fan of serial killers and I've always wanted my own serial killer action figure collection.

I haven't been able to find any so I want to make my own!

The moulding at the factory will cost a small fortune so I want to see what people think of the idea and design before I take the plunge!

I'd be grateful for any feedback you have!

This is the first figure - Jeffrey Dahmer, The Milwaukee Cannibal

Are there any other serial killers you would like to see?

H.H. Holmes and Albert Fish

Albert Fish will be high on my list. I'll only do H.H.Holmes if I can do the "World's Fair" hotel diarama!

Go for it-here's a list of UK serial killers ranked by number of murders:-

Gacy, Berkowitz, and of course Manson (although technically not a serial killer). As for your Dahmer, it's a little cartoonish if you ask me (looks like one of the kids from Bloom County). I think a more realistic figure, while more expensive to produce, would probably be more marketable.

Gacy will be the second figure probably in his Pogo the Clown costume tho!

I know what you mean about the cartoonish design. It would be much more expensive to get original sculptures made and the only way I can do it with my small budget would be to reuse parts from previous figures.

If the demand is there, I would like to do a collection of 12 for series 1. Would anyone be interested in buying a monthly sub for each of the 12 figures?

They'll include Gein, Gacy, Dahmer, Fish, Berkowitz, Shipman, Bathory and more!

I think they'll be around $12 each.

What do you think?

and ya cant forget bundy

Bundy is a top priority as well but do we want more expensive realistic figures or cheaper, anime style figures?

wizard of gore 03-14-2012 03:18 PM

whatever you can afford,i reckon realistic would be better,probabaly sell better too,so youd make your money back.people walking past would be quick to reconize the figure.probably just walk past thinking it was just a random doll animated style.
if thats what you meant by expensive

Thanks for your feedback, everyone.

I've got the overall impression that people want realistic figures rather than cartoonish designs so I'm going to try and work with in mind!
