For a certain type of horror fan, collecting toys based on horror's most iconic villains is just as much fun as watching the movies. And there has never been a better time to be a fan of horror movie toys. For the past few decades, companies like McFarlane, NECA, and Sideshow Collectibles have been pumping out high-quality horror movie action figures depicting just about any character imaginable. Some of the rarest horror movie toys have even become collector's items - which means they cost a ton.
With some of these toys, it's obvious why they cost so much - they offer a level of craftsmanship and detail that you just don't see at your average toy store. With others, they're valuable because they're rare and difficult to find for various reasons. Either way, these sought-after collectibles can go for hundreds of dollars on the secondary market. Here are some of the rarest and most valuable toys from horror movies for when you win the lottery.

Sideshow Collectibles Life-Size 'Seed of Chucky' Doll
What It Costs: $600 if you buy it directly from Sideshow Collectibles, although it's also available on eBay for up to $5,000.
Why It's Worth So Much: Sideshow Collectibles describes this as "the most screen-accurate scarred Chucky Doll ever produced." It's made at a 1:1 ratio, so it's exactly as big as the real Chucky is. (More specifically, 32 inches tall.) This doll was also developed by Tony Gardner and Altieri, Inc., which made the dolls that were used in Seed of Chucky. This doll is accurate down to the smallest detail, using the same molds to create the body and the same fabric swatches to create the clothes. The aluminum frame is sturdy and allows you to pose your Chucky any way you want. It even comes in a weathered Good Guys box, just like Chucky does in the movies.

NECA Alien Egg And Facehugger Replica
Why It's Worth So Much: This is a full-size egg and facehugger combo from the 1986 movie Aliens. Released by NECA in 2015, it stands at 36 inches tall, is hand-painted, and features an LED display in the base that creates an eerie, otherworldly effect. The egg flaps are articulated with a wire armature, so you can fully open and close them. The facehugger alien is also life-size, and it comes with a fully posable tail.

McFarlane Movie Maniacs 'Jaws' Deluxe Boxed Set
Why It's Worth So Much: Today, McFarlane Toys is known for their popular line of action figures from Halo and The Walking Dead, but in the late '90s and early 2000s, the company was focused almost entirely on horror movie villains. Starting in 1998, McFarlane's "Movie Maniacs" series brought some of horror's most iconic villains to life like they never had been before - or since. Known for their high quality, attention to detail, and intricately sculpted textures, the high-end Movie Maniacs toys quickly became sought after by collectors. The Jaws Deluxe Boxed Set was released as part of Movie Maniacs' fourth series in 2001. The set recreates the climactic ending sequence from Jaws and includes a replica of the shark demolishing the Orca. Some editions also include a bloodied Quint action figure that goes in the shark's mouth.
