Blood Wolves (Stan Winston Creatures)

What do you get when you take one of the most well known names in the horror industry and blend in action figures? You get Stan Winston Creatures. If you've seen a horror movie between 1970 and 2000, we guarantee you've seen his work.

No, you won't find your Spawns, your Batmans or your Han Solos here. Instead what you'll get are unique figure lines which rival the best product McFarlane Toys has produced. This is due to one of the most key elements of action figure creation - Articulation. The figures can be manipulated at the knees, thighs, hips, waist, shoulders, biceps, elbows, wrists and neck.

Keeping in theme with celebrating Halloween all month long, we're taking a look at one of our favorite, and relatively unknown series, the 2002 released Blood Wolves from Stan Winston Creatures.

The series is small, but what you get is worlds beyond most toy lines. Four highly articulated, impressively accessorized, and expertly crafted with utmost attention to detail figures.

The characters were; Lycon, Medieval Trakk, Vereticus, and Wolv.

If you hadn't guessed at this point, the series took a page from your standard werewolf guide for its premise. Sure it could have been construed as cliché, and possibly even a quick way to make a buck, but we personally think the figures speak for themselves.

Stan Winston unfortunately passed away in June of 2008, but through his films, his toys, and all his other work, he stands as a legend of horror. A true person to be honored as we get ready to throw our Halloween parties, and watch hours of spook filled films.

Join us October 31, 2012 for our final Halloween celebration post. It's the most requested toy line from our readers, and one of the most largest action figure lines out there. We'll see you Wednesday when we wrap it all up with a large bang!
