This Silence of the Lambs Action Figure Is Too Realistic

By Julie Muncy on at

Anyone who’s ever wanted the cold, hard eyes of a murderous Anthony Hopkins staring at them is in luck, because this Hannibal action figure is so accurate it’s uncanny.

Designed and manufactured by Blitzway, this Silence of the Lambs figure is one of the most detailed I’ve ever seen. I’m normally not a huge action figure person, but those piercing blue eyes, the detailing in his forehead wrinkles, that grin. Honestly, I’m a little scared. I always thought that Mads Mikkelsen’s composed sociopath was the most unsettling version of Hannibal Lecter, but now I’m thinking maybe this toy takes the top spot.

The 1/6 scale action figure, which you can get in either “Hannibal the Cannibal” violent murderer configuration or the classic muzzled straightjacket version, was made available for preorder by distributor Bluefin just a couple days ago. It costs $269 (£210).

Just watch out. He looks hungry.
