Over the weekend we received a fun batch of promotional stuff for the UK DVD and Blu-ray release of Adam Wingard's home invasion slasher You're Next. To tie in with the release, the PR company had some custom LEGO Minifigures made of some iconic horror movie characters (above), including Freddy Krueger and Michael Myers. We tweeted out the image and had a huge response from fans, some asking where Jason and Leatherface were, others debating the inclusion of Norman Bates, Jack Torrence and Fox Mask (from You're Next). Most, however, were asking "Where can I buy these?"
At the time we pushed out the image they weren't actually available to purchase, but due to the popularity of the figures, the company that made them responded by adding them to their webiste for order. What's more, they took the Twitter comments on board and pulled out the stops to get Jason Voorhees, Leatherface and Patrick Bateman (American Psycho) added to the range (below).
Check out the entire range of figures on the Minifigs.me website here: http://minifigs.me/product-category/our-minifigs/as-seen-on-tv/horror-films/ and if you don't see what you're looking for then hit them up by email or on Twitter as they can customise LEGO minifigures to any design.
You're Next, by the way, was released on UK DVD and Blu-ray yesterday and is a fantastically tense home-invasion horror that you should definitely check out if you haven't already. Grab a Fox Mask minifigure and watch it together.
