Twisted Land of Oz toys are a range of action figures based on a reinterpretation of the characters from the Frank L. Baum novel ‘The Wonderful Wizard of Oz’.

 

Background

The Twisted Land of Oz range of toys was released in 2003 by the company McFarlane Toys, well known for their figures and toys designed for adult collectors. The company was established in 1994 as an offshoot of Todd McFarlane Productions, and originnaly produced a set of toys based on the Todd McFarlane comic book series Spawn.

Today the company produces a range of detailed figures based on a wide range of film, television, fantasy and music properties, with a particular emphasis to science fiction, comic book and horror titles.

The McFarlane Twisted Land of Oz toys

The range of toys is similar to many of the other McFarlane lines, as it takes a set of well-known characters and reinterprets them in a darker, more adult manner. The series includes:

  • Dorothy (with Munchkins)
  • Lion
  • Scarecrow
  • Tin Woodman
  • Toto
  • Wizard (with scientist)
  • Flying Monkeys

Each of the figures measured around 6” – 8” tall, and came complete with a booklet telling to re-imagined story of the Twisted Land of Oz mythology.

A larger 12” version of the Dorothy figure was released in 2007, with a different version without a skirt released to the McFarlane Collector’s Club.

How much are Twisted Land of Oz toys worth?

The toys were not produced in particularly limited numbers, and are fairly common on auction sites such as eBay. As such, unopened figures can be purchased for less than $10 in most circumstances. This includes the larger Dorothy figures released in 2007.
