Before gazing in awe at the wondrous image contained within, we hereby plead with you to go get a box of tissues. Between the drooling and lord knows what else you'll be doing in about five seconds, you need to be prepared. Things can and will get sticky!

This has been quite the week for info on The Walking Dead line of action figures coming our way from McFarlane Toys, and today we learned of two brand new entries, including one particular fan-favorite character from the TV series you won't find in the comics. MTV got the skinny straight from McFarlane about the new line, which arrives on shelves this November:
We've seen prototypes, rendered images, and teaser shots, but the time has come to sample the whole gooey enchilada! Get ready to dig on the first finished shots of McFarlane's The Walking Dead Figures line!
Oh, NECA. How we love thee. You consistently dole out the most life-like horror collectibles we've ever seen. Yeah, there have been a few stinkers along the way but for the most part you're usually spot-on in terms of likenesses. Speaking of which ...
Remember years ago McFarlane put out an Evil Dead Ash figure that would fall instantly apart the second you took it out of the package? We do too. Honestly? We're still pretty furious about it. To say it was shoddy work is a bit of an understatement. Well how about good reason to erase that news?
Ever wanted to have your very own cabin in the woods? Not a nice one, mind you, but one that's stained with the gallons of blood shed by the many victims of evil Candarian demons? Yeah, us too. While we may not have the resources to build one to scale (much less the tools to summon forth the demons), we can however show you how to build your very own model replica.
We know a lot of you guys dug the hell out of Repo!, so we were very happy to hear that the star and co-creater of Repo! The Genetic Opera has released never-before-sold artwork from the movie to celebrate the release of his new online store.
T-shirts. There's no finer way to rock your love for movies, music, video games, etc. Limited edition T-shirts are even sweeter ... speaking of which get ready to burn up your credit cards! On May 1st, Creepy Tees (link below) will be releasing a "30th Anniversary Edition" package for Friday the 13th Part 2.
Finally a good look at McFarlane's action figure line for The Walking Dead has hit the net and we've got all the gory and full painted goods waiting right here to hit you in the brain like a wooden splinter through the eye socket!

Over the years NECA Toys has delivered the goods on a constant basis. At this year's Toy Fair they introduced a trio of new Freddy figures from the classic A Nightmare on Elm Street franchise that showcased some of their best work with the character to date. Now comes the fourth and, dare we say it, the best.
When you think "cuddly", zombies aren't exactly the first things that come to mind. "Creepy", on the other hand, definitely fits. Thanks to Mezco Toyz, we have a set of three lovably freaky, ghoulishly cute zombies as the newest additions to the company's Creepy Cuddlers family. The trio of characters includes:
Rarely has a magazine impressed us as much as the brand spanking new Mad Monster. Coming in fresh out of the crypt, this is not your ordinary reading material ... in fact it's one of the single most creative, fun, and interactive things we've ever gotten our claws into filled with games, toys, paper models, etc. Prepare to be blown away!
Never mind the meatball-looking faux Krueger from the tepid remake of A Nightmare on Elm Street. Don't see many figures of him now, do you? NECA Toys more than knows where the horror fans' hearts and loyalties lie, and their new A Nightmare on Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors collectible is nothing short of an absolute must have!
Who doesn't love playing with the dead? Sure, they can be a little stiff, but if you keep those limbs moving, you should be pretty okay. As for the smell? Well, there's not much that can be done in that department. Small price to pay for all that macabre fun though, dontcha think? From the Press Release:
