And now, Svengoolie, the loveable vampire host based in Chicago, has very his own spooky action figure (said in my best rendition of a game show host's voice). The new figure from MeTV, in collaboration with Svengoolie himself, was created by Figures Toy Company and comes with all of Sven's usual accessories: black suit, red shirt, and top hat.
Press Release: September 11, 2017 – Chicago, IL – Are you looking for new ideas for what to give that lover of classic horror in your life? Are you a collector of cool kitsch? Or, do you just want to treat yourself to some fandom fun? If so, MeTV and Svengoolie have something just for you. The first-ever Svengoolie action figure is available now, exclusively on MeTV.com’s online store (https://store.metv.com/). MeTV and Svengoolie have commissioned a limited run of 1,000, so don’t wait, order today or you could be making a grave mistake!
“I’m really flattered that I’ve been immortalized as an action figure,” said Sven. “I got nervous, at first, because I thought it might be a voodoo doll.”
Svengoolie, the award-winning horror entertainment icon based in Chicago, presents frightfully fun entertainment Saturday nights on MeTV at 8 pm ET/PT. Fondly known simply as Sven to fans, the ghoulish vampire host fuses humor with horror as he shares some of his favorite classic horror films and science fiction with television audiences across America.
The Svengoolie action figure is manufactured by Figures Toy Company, one of the industry’s premiere distributors of licensed collectibles. Based in Tampa, Florida, the company founded by Anthony Balasco and Steve Sandberg has manufactured and distributed collectibles and action figures based on characters from Harry Potter, DC Comics, Hanna-Barbera, WWE, the rock band KISS, and many, many more. The 8-inch tall character is dressed in Sven’s signature black suit and red shirt and features a removable top hat. This collectible figure is priced at only $29.95, excluding taxes, shipping, and handling.
In addition to the action figure, MeTV and Svengoolie recently introduced a set of animated Sven emojis and a special “It Came From Berwyn” retro movie poster. The MeTV.com store offers an array of dark & delightful Svengoolie items for the generous gift-giver putting together the perfect bag.
