Rue Morgue Magazine has partnered with the late horror icon’s estate to release their premiere figure in the Rue Morgue RIPpers Limited Edition Line of Collectible Bobbleheads: legendary horror icon VINCENT PRICE!
This 7-inch-tall figure, designed by Aggronautix, is limited to 1500 numbered units and depicts the legendary star in a classic pose, with a skeleton in hand.
“This Vincent Price bobblehead perfectly captures my dad’s whimsical scariness,” said Victoria Price. “He would have loved it, and so will you!”
Made of space-age polyresin, and sculpted with frightening accuracy right down to the fine facial details, the Vincent Price Rue Morgue RIPper is only $29.95 plus S&H and is expected to go fast.
“We’re thrilled to be teaming up with Victoria Price and the talented team at Aggronautix to create the first in a unique line of quality collectibles,” said Rodrigo Gudiño, President of Rue Morgue.
Aggronautix expects stock before Christmas but can’t guarantee delivery before Christmas due to the fact that customers are worldwide and shipping times will vary from a few days, to a few weeks.
All Aggronautix figures are now available for purchase on www.aggronautix.com and will also be available at independent record stores, comic shops, tattoo parlors, etc via distribution by MVD Entertainment Group.

Vincent Price passed away twenty years ago today. A true icon of the horror genre, he is probably most known for his contribution to the King of Pop’s zombified hit “Thriller” in the early 1980s.
In issue #27 of HorrorHound, the magazine put forth what it considers to be the list of the 100 greatest names in horror history. Many names on this list are no surprise…Stephen King, Bela Legosi, H.P. Lovecraft and George Romero all appearing in the top ten. I must admit there are a few names that I do not recognize, but I plan to correct that over the coming year. I will use this as a “who did I miss?” list to discover classics that I have overlooked.
The number one name on the list is indisputable: Vincent Price. If you don’t agree, you’re wrong. I’m sorry to be so blunt, but that is the truth. Vincent Price has done more for the horror genre than almost anyone in history…forget the last 100 years.
This issue of HorrorHound is a Vincent Price special with some good articles about the man and his work. I was fortunate to go to the bookstore when I did, because the next issue is already out and I probably wouldn’t have purchased it (Scream is on the cover, and other than the first installment I just didn’t really like the franchise). If you are a Vincent Price fan and you missed HorrorHound #27, you can order it from HH’s website.
Here is Vincent Price reading Edgar Allan Poe’s classic, “The Cask of Amontillado” (my favorite Poe story).
I can’t help but wonder, where would Poe rank on a list such as this, if not limited to just 100 years?
(Note to self: I still haven’t shared my photos from the Poe House in Baltimore last summer. For shame for shame. Gotta get to that soon.)
