Last Toys on the Left
The world of plastic gets a swift kick in the ass three times a year. One is at Toy Fair, one is during the holiday season, and the big daddy of them all is at San Diego Comic-Con! Bif Bang Pow has already shown us a small army of bobble-headed freaks marching to the show as we speak, but today they dropped us a line to show off the packaging art for their new "Twilight Zone" Retro Action Figures as well as the newest 7-inch "Dexter" Action Figures!
With Nimrod Antal's Predators thankfully right around the corner, it's only a matter of time before collectibles from the flick start popping up everywhere. According to this new teaser image, that time is rapidly approaching.
We are T minus 10 seconds away from the San Diego Comic-Con exclusives announcement explosion, but some companies have already fired the first shot and staked a claim on your hard earned cash. Entertainment Earth is one such sneaky monkey, posting a big box of exclusives via pre-orders on their website. Here's the rundown...
It's official! Our man Nomad's side project, Idle Hands, and Shocker Toys have announced a limited partnership to create the first Idle Hands action figure exclusive - MUCUS TICK!
I swear half the people reading that headline just died over what could be the most awesome Syfy channel movie title EVER. Alas, it is not to be, but maybe something better?
If you're planning to attend this year's San Diego Comic-Con and are a fan of Megan Fox, then you'll no doubt be interested in reading more about "Saloon Leila", an SDCC exclusive from Tonner Doll Company based on Fox's character in the upcoming Jonah Hex.
The US Toy Fair is an insane rush of interviews and images of THOUSANDS of the newest toys hitting our happy shores, most of which we can shoot pictures of so you, at home, can drool to your heart's content and plant printed pictures around the house like a young Ralphie hinting at his lust for a Red Rider BB gun. But some, no matter how much we beg, we cannot photograph, most often due to approvals needed by a licensor.
He's spherical! He belches! He's covered in tumors! You know you want your very own Left 4 Dead 2 Boomer plush toy to play with!
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.
There's badass, and then there's badass Sideshow Collectibles style. Their 16-inch Jason Voorhees "Terror of Crystal Lake" polystone statue is now available for pre-order, and we've got a look at both the Sideshow exclusive and regular versions for you here.
Every year Sideshow Collectibles offers an assortment of exclusive items at the San Diego Comic-Con, and today they provided a sneak peek at their four 2010 SDCC Exclusives. Will there be something from the Star Wars universe? Perhaps a new The Dead piece will rise? We can only hope!
Back in January of this year we posted a pretty hilarious early look at the concept art for the upcoming bobble head figure based on the Trinity Killer from Dexter, and now finally the real deal is available.
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.
Every anthology series since has tried to mimic the formula established by The Twilight Zone with mixed success. But there's no disputing the awesomeness of Bif Bang Pow!'s line of Twilight Zone bobble heads and action figures, and fans of the series have not just one or two new items to add to their shopping lists but a whopping four bobbles and two pairs of 8-inch figures, all coming between March and August of this year!
