Some toys that'll really disturb your Christmas.

Years ago, McFarlane Toys released some of the most twisted Christmas-themed toys to ever hit the store shelves. There was only one name to call this toy line, "Twisted Christmas".For those of you that dont know, McFarlane Toys is a company started by Todd McFarlane that makes highly detailed scaled figures from movies, comics, musicians, video games, and sport figures. Exquisite attention to detail set McFarlane Toys apart from the rest. However, the detail always sacrificed articulation, making them more of semi-poseable statues than action figures. Still, it is arguably the most commercially successful toy line, and its influenced many other toy lines to try and imitate McFarlane Toys' style.
This line is no exception. Exeptional detail, down to every piece, giving you knot in your stomache as you fix your sights on these demented renditions of some Christmas' most loved characters. If you can get your hands on any of these, they would be a perfect Christmas decoration.
