Every now and then a story comes across our desks that sends up a tiny voice balloon with the letters "WTF" floating lovingly over our heads. This is just such a moment. Since we've covered pretty much everything having to do with The Twilight Saga, it's our journalistic duty to report on -- The Vamp.
We’ve just finished uploading all of our Mezco images to the massive San Diego Comic-Con gallery (OVER 800 PICS IN THERE!!), so we thought it would be a good time to catch up with Damien Glonek and find out what horrors they’ll be dishing out in the near future.
The 09/09/09 release date of Shane Acker's 9 is fast approaching, and to celebrate, NECA has a new line of figures coming out, beginning with 1 (a good place to start) and 9.
Tonner Doll Company was the first collectibles outfit to recognize the potential of the Twilight franchise and (along with some prodding from Dread toy junkies) quickly jumped at the chance to bring this world of supernatural beings into their family of licenses. To date only Edward and Bella have been realized in doll form, but as the Dread crew closed up shop at San Diego Comic-Con, our excellent Tonner friends flagged us down for a sneak preview of what's to come.
Ready to do a little holiday shopping in July? December will be here before we know it, but thanks to Sideshow Collectibles you can cross one gift off your list now - Subject 245: The Punk, the newest addition to their line of zombie figures known as The Dead, which is set to ship out in 4th Quarter, 2009.
Go Hero is set to make its mark on San Diego Comic-Con with a line of 12-inch scaled figures you are not likely to forget. Combining an eye for fine art wrapped up in every stitch of clothing, accessory detail, and sculpted part with the sensibility of an overgrown kid who always wanted kick-ass toys from Ray Harryhausen creations, Go Hero has created some amazing new collectibles!
Got your San Diego Comic-Con tickets and making a shopping list and game plan? One place you do not want to miss is Booth #4145, home of Mezco Toyz!
Few times do we find ourselves speechless here at Dread Central. This is one of those times. Hold on to your asses, JAWS fanatics. Something incredibly fucking wicked is headed our way!
Although he's known more for sparkling than drinking blood, it appears Twilight's Edward Cullen does, indeed, hunger. And Tonner has the doll to prove it!
We've got Slimer, Stay Puft Marshmallow Man, and even an angry Stay Puft on the way as a San Diego Comic-Con exclusive. Now Diamond Select Toys rounds out its rotocast bank collection with the iconic Ghostbusters logo.
There's a certain amount of joy that goes along with having all the power and evil of your favorite serial killer in the palm of your hand, and lately nobody has been doing it better than Mezco Toyz. Need proof? Just check out their new Freddy Krueger Stylized Roto Figure!
In the beginning there was NECA ... and NECA created the Terror Dogs and Gozer and even Slimer ... but something was missing. The boys in grey could not be made real. Some said it was likeness rights, plain and simple. Some said Bill Murray demanded an orphan child in exchange for the rights.
For years Spidey has dominated your geeky shelf space, but Shocker Toys is looking to change all that. The first series of Indie Spotlight is in stores now, pitting The Maxx, Kabuki, Scud and others against your Marvel and DC mainstays. Now, DeadWorld gets its due!
Mez-Itz used to be the small, blocky figures from Mezco, made up like your favorite horror baddies and several original series. While similar figure lines just painted their stock bodies and added tiny tweaks, the Mez-Itz offered a freaky amount of sculpting, even in the accessories. If you were ever in the market for a tiny little Necronomicon, this was the place to get it.
San Diego Comic-Con is SOLD OUT, meaning there will be more people than ever before gunning for the hottest convention exclusives. Dread Central does our part to help navigate the waters with a round-up of the bloody best the show has to offer. We kick things off with Mezco, who will be injecting a healthy dose of Hellboy into SDCC 09.
