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!

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.

Just when you thought it was safe to set up your action figures, the homeless Michael figure rears its head and roars our way. You know, this thing is so absurd looking, I think even I may have to buy one!

Gentle Giant is in command of the New Line Cinema House of Horrors license for statues and busts, and so far they've gone from ultra realistic to Tex Avery cartoony in 3.2 seconds.

Jason sits in his childhood bed, clutching a doll that reminds him of his lost innocence while his subconscious has him stabbing the hat of Freddy Krueger, the man that epitomizes the rape of children's dreams. DEEP! Let's read the propaganda ...
