Forrest J Ackerman, known to fans as “Uncle Forry”, comes to life in this 13” tall statue from Dark Horse. Forry was the creator, editor, and principal writer for Famous Monsters of Filmland, and was also known for his “Acker-mansion,” a sprawling house in Los Angeles that held his extensive book and memorabilia collection. As an agent, writer, editor, and actor, he had far-reaching influence in the science fiction, horror, and fantasy community.
In this special bronze edition of the statue, Forry is sitting in a clawed armchair and reading an issue of Famous Monsters. The statue includes a nameplate on the base with one of Forry’s most popular nicknames — “Dr. Acula.”
