New York- As the weather turns colder and the leaves begin to fall, the Living Dead Dolls once again emerge from their crypt for a special issue of dolls.
This is the second time this theme has been reinterpreted by the spooky dolls. The first set, created in 2004, was a huge hit, “It was one of their best selling exclusives!” says Damien Glonek, co-creator of the Living Dead Dolls “They were an instant classic”.
Because of the overwhelming success of the original edition and continuous public demand, Mezco decided to revisit the set. “We see fans at conventions and without fail they as if have more of those two dolls” says Ed Long, co-creator of the dolls, “This year we decided to make that request come true!”
Far from a run of the mill reissue, the new dolls have significant differences from their predecessors. The new edition features the
updated doll bodies, which feature ball joints for a far greater range of motion. In response to customer requests, the dolls are “bloody”.
“Bloody makes sense” Glonek says gleefully, “After all, there are lots of sharp tools on a farm”. Lastly, and certainly most notably, the faces have been totally redesigned. The redesign is still clearly inspired by the same source, but is markedly different from the original issue.*
The Living Dead Dolls Presents American Gothic are now available exclusively at over 700 Spencer’s stores in the USA.
But we are very lucky in Australia to be able to offer the dolls direct, they came in store this week and are $110 the pair.
Also released this week were series 18 and the welcome return of some mini LDD -
