Mezco Presents Stylized Chucky
January 2014 - New York - "We're friends to the end!" Of course, with Chucky as your friend, the end comes much sooner than you ever expected. Chucky, the homicidal doll who contains the spirit of Charles Lee Ray, a serial killer better known as "The Lakeshore Strangler," is the latest perturbed plaything to be produced by Mezco Toyz.
Mezco's award-winning designers have created an all new sculpture in an all new scale that not only captures the look of Chucky, but the very essence of his menace. Every detail has been captured; from his classic coveralls to the unique imprint of the soles on his sneakers. From his glistening, insane eyes, and his sneering lips, to his shocking red hair, this is Chucky at his most iconic...and most evil!
The star of five CHILD'S PLAY films, Chucky features 7 points of articulation. He also comes with a knife that he is sure to use for no good.
Each Chucky comes packaged in his own collector friendly window box so he can watch you and plan his attack.

WASHINGTON, December 24, 2013 -- Following is the daily "Profile America" feature from the U.S. Census Bureau:
Profile America - Tuesday, December 24th. This is Christmas Eve, a time of gathering families close together and to wind down from the hectic weeks of shopping and mailing. But it also a night of wrapping presents, especially toys - some of which have to be put together. Some parents will discover to their dismay that some treasure has been overlooked, or that batteries are not included with their purchases and head out into the cold, hoping to find an open store with the right solutions. Santa's elves get plenty of help for U.S. toy makers. There are 525 enterprises across the country producing games, toys and children's vehicles. These businesses employ over 7,300 workers. And Santa's sleigh is also burdened with around $10 billion worth of imported toys, the greatest part of which is from China.
