What then is “horror”? Well, to me, “horror” is when it crosses into our personal space. When that place which is our own personal space, our pure sanctuary, is invaded by the impure and the external –that is when horror happens. The boogeyman in the night is “fear”, the boogeyman under your bed or in your closet is “horror”. Seeing a person with a twisted stump of a hand pumping blood is “fear”, seeing your own is “horror”. Seeing a maggot crawling on a lump of meat is “fear”, seeing one crawl out of your infected wound is “horror”. So many great filmmakers, writers and game creators understood this. Stephen King with his “shitweasels” in “Dream Catcher; David Cronenburg and his twisted transformed bodies; Silent Hill 4: The Room using the concept of invading personal space. The list is endless. To summarize, a killer with a knife, machete or chainsaw that is about to break down your door is fright. Finding that the killer is already in your home is horror. Discovering that the killer is actually you? That is psychological horror.

Good look at Toymunkey’s Heather Mason and Original Bubble Head Nurse statues!
We will be entering the final quarter of the year soon and will hopefully see the release of Robbie and Heather before the year clocks 2014.

Would you guys want more Silent Hill statues in 2014? SH4? SH1? Which statues would you like Toymunkey to work on next?

Pre-Order Toymunkey Studio’s Silent Hill 3 Heather Mason statue from third party retailer! Expected to drop this holiday season.
Thanks to chaaarmanderchar for submitting this information!
Toymunkey Studios has posted the Silent Hill shirts in the many variants except for the Robbie shirts which are exclusive to Japan only through Mamegyorai. Many of you are probably excited to hear this news as they are official Konami merchandise and an easy checkout through paypal, problem is however, many of the sizes with colors are sold out and the shirts run up to 45 dollars after shipping charges… Im guessing this is due to the high demand and limited shirt number which I dont know they will replenish once all gone. So if you are interested and they have the shirt that fits you you can purchase it here. For me? I will be waiting till they have my size and color as well as a free shipping coupon code…
Also exclusive RPT and BHN statues seem to still be up for grabs on their website here.
Check out Historical Society’s video recap of the Toymunkey Studios booth at Comic-Con 2013, giving more information on the Silent Hill 3 statues and what Toymunkey had to offer at Comic-Con!
Mamegyorai have posted some new High Quality images of the Heather statue from Gecco/Toymunkey Studios using a rustic orange color palette that captures that Silent Hill 3 intensity we remember 10 years ago! The new images really bring out some of the finer details, like the freckles and flaws in the skin tone, it really shows the realism in this human statue! Also gotta love the ability to swap out weapons one of them being the Beam Saber with the purple leopard print! I also like the base for the Heather statue being from the Lakeside Amusement Park location with its metal grating! Mamegyorai japan have posted the statue for sale now we are just waiting to get word from Toymunkey Studios to make it available in America and Europe at an affordable price in time for the holiday season! High Quality Robbie pictures still to come!
