Last Toys on the Left
I remember playing with my favorite dolls fondly. Frankenstein's monster, Dracula, the Wolf Man, the Creature. Now members of this generation can pit their favorite characters from The Twilight Saga against The Hunger Games in a fight to the death of sparkling ridiculousness.
You know the best part of these new Gremlins collectibles? You don't have to worry about the rules! Expose them to as much bright light as you want! Get 'em wet! As for feeding them after midnight... if you see these things start chomping at any time of the day, you could be in big trouble.
It's pretty amazing how Lego has gone from a connectible block set to a marketing phenomenon complete with video games, etc. Now we take a much closer look at their line of Monster Hunters. Dig it!
Toy Fair 2012: Fringe Horror Collectibles: Masters of the Universe, Marvel Legends - Blade and Ghost Rider, and Another Look at The Amazing Spider-Man's Lizard
There are so many cool plastic creatures on display at this year's Toy Fair, it's hard to know which way to look. Good thing our man Nomad is there with his camera to capture every little beastie he came across!
Toy Fair 2012: New Monster High, Ghostbusters, Beetlejuice, The Corpse Bride, and Mars Attacks Collectibles Plus More!
Oh, Toy Fair. How we both hate and love thee. So much cool stuff is unveiled every year at New York's biggest collectible dance, and the only bad thing is with every picture you see you can almost feel your wallets getting lighter and lighter.
Toy Fair 2012: A Sneak Peek of Emce Toys' Working Stiffs, Shock Puppets, and A Very Scary Christmas Snowglobes
Joe Sena took a few minutes out of his very hectic Toy Fair schedule to drop us a line with some early info on what Emce Toys will be showing off during the annual event, and if you're a fan of either zombies or snowglobes (or both), you should be quite pleased!
Diamond Select Toys has announced the latest property to join its horror line-up of fully poseable action figures: Mad Monster Party, the classic film by Rankin/Bass which brought all of pop culture's most famous monsters to the big screen in 1967.
Toy Fair 2012 runs February 12-15 in New York City's Jacob K. Javits Convention Center, but you many have noticed that we've gotten a bit of a jump on things. On tap for you now we have a look at JAKKS Pacific's "The Walking Dead" Deluxe TV Game and its S.L.U.G. Zombies line.
We've seen some extremely cool packaging for DVD and/or Blu-ray releases over the years, but we have to say that the case designed by McFarlane Toys for "The Walking Dead" Season 2 Special Edition Blu-ray pretty much takes the cake.
Seriously, man. When something dies, why not play with it? You can make it do anything you want! We should be taking advantage of situations like this!
Our man Nomad just checked in with some more madness coming out of this year's Toy Fair, and let's just say that fans of monstrous collectibles are about to feel their wallets start twitching in their pockets! Ready for some eye candy? Bring a tissue; some of this stuff is drool worthy!
Harry Potter & the House of Hammer Battles The Adventures of Super Carrie for Box Office Championship
At the time of my writing this box office report, we still don’t know how close the score will be in the big game between the New England Patriots and “the New York football Giants” (as Howard Cosell used to call them), but at the movie Super Bowl this weekend, a one-point difference is about all that separated The Woman in Black and Chronicle for the box office championship.
IT'S NECA TIME! Yes, kiddies, those fine folks who brought you Lost Boys, Robocop, 60 Freddies, 70 Jasons and 200 Gremlins are now tackling a film near and dear to our hearts and inexplicably overlooked by the toy gods: EVIL DEAD 2!
NECA has been fulfilling dreams for some time now, and if you think that sentiment is silly, you are NOT a hardcore horror fan! What other company would do the leads from Lost Boys, Robocop, the first Terminator AND an entire line of Gremlins in both cute 'n fuzzy and mean 'n scary forms?!
I'm always amazed at how casually monsters and horror have worked their way into media seemingly made for "kids". The Pirates of the Caribbean films (from Walt Disney) have had zombies, fish monsters AND unkillable skeleton pirates. Hell, those lovable Ewoks from Star Wars set out to EAT our heroes when they first met. Never forget what the "Luka Luka Luuuuka" song really means.
