Fans of J-Horror are gonna be pretty stoked about this new line of evil spirit collectibles that are on their way from Skeleton Key Collectibles. Personally we’d love to get our hands on all five of them, but man, is there a price, and we don’t mean just having seven days to live.

Each one of these Far East spookers will set you back over 100 bucks, but if you’re daring (and rich), you can order them from the Skeleton Key Figures website, where you can also read about the legend behind each!

Skeleton Key Figures is a production house specializing in the creation of highly detailed action figures and collectible statues based in Osaka, Japan. Established in 2011, they aim to produce premium quality limited edition figures. All of their figures are resin cast and hand painted in Japan.

Shuonan is their forthcoming series of five “Yurei” or Japanese ghosts. Each of the five figures is based upon a traditional Japanese ghost story. The ghosts will only be available in a strictly limited edition of 250. All figures come with a large detailed base and a thorough explanation of the ghost story in both English and Japanese.

Japanese ghosts, or Yurei, are the restless souls of the departed that are unable to find peace in the hereafter. They linger on in this realm, driven by powerful emotions such as rage, sorrow, or devotion. Yurei are often malevolent spirits, seeking vengeance on those that wronged them in their mortal life. Yurei typically appear in the hot months of summer, especially around Obon, the Japanese festival of the dead. “Shuonan” refers to a sanctuary for spirits where malice can be paid back to their enemies.
