My favorite bits of reading as I flew through the grocery checkout were always sightings and new discoveries pertaining to "Bat Boy" on the cover of The Weekly World News. Apparently Steve Forde of Go Hero has similar memories and decided NOW is the time that the enigma that is Bat Boy be fleshed out in plastic for your desktop, car dashboard and Hummel curio cabinet.
Lately some of the coolest collectibles on the market have been bobble heads, and few companies give better head than Funko. This September they have a new line of bobbles hitting the market that includes two of our most favorite creatures: Cthulhu and The Fly.
Now here is something we've been waiting for FOREVER! A deluxe collectible from The Exorcist featuring little Reagan strapped to her bed and thoroughly possessed. Pretty cool, no? But wait .... there's more!

The filming of Season Five of Showtime's "Dexter" doesn't start up until June so it's going to be a bit of a wait before we get to reconnect with America's most lovable mass murderer. But thanks to Dark Horse Deluxe collectibles, a 7-inch version could be yours to bring home this summer.
Living as close to Mexico as we do, next to Halloween, many Dread Central staffers' favorite holiday is the Day of the Dead (or El Día de los Muertos) so you can bet we'll be first in line to order the super badass Living Dead Dolls Series 20, which is based around the festivities.
H.P. Lovecraft had one of the single most insane imaginations that has ever been instilled in a mortal man, and as a result his writings have remained as horrific, visceral, and relevant as when he first put pen to paper. We like to think even he himself would approve of this latest collectible that's hitting the market. Are you guys ready to come face to claw with Dagon?

Nomad has finished sifting through his hundreds of pictures from this year's Toy Fair and just updated his blog with the details about Diamond Select's two new lines of Universal Monsters: Universal Select and Universal Minimates, both of which are starting with figures from Creature from the Black Lagoon.
You know, in retrospect, if Katie and Micah had had some tiny plastic Ghostbusters figures with them, they might have stood a better chance against that nasty demon who was haunting them literally to death in the box office smash Paranormal Activity. At the very least Venkmen. He had moxie!
Nomad just reported in with a slew of new A Nightmare on Elm Street goodies for you guys to ummm ... sink your claws into! As well as figures based upon the new Platinum Dunes remake that's looming on the horizon, NECA is also paying its respect to the original franchise with a new and exciting collectible that makes us wonder how no one ever thought to do it before!
