Last Toys on the Left
The little dolls that we were actually allowed to play with in our youth without getting hit by our dads have been returning to toy store shelves. RIGHT NOW you can walk into most comic shops and buy retro, MEGO styled figures from Night of the Living Dead, Planet of the Apes, and Star Trek. We knew DC comics were soon to follow (via Mattel), but we didn't know EMCE was joining forces with Bif Bang Pow to get in on their awesome properties.
Join the Living Dead Dolls as they journey down the rabbit hole into Wonderland. Fans have eagerly been awaiting info on the release of the Cheshire Cat, and now the wait is over!
Fans of The Twilight Saga: New Moon might be a little disheartened after today's announcement of the Razzie Awards nominations, but since we know nothing cheers you up like playing with your toys, we thought we'd pass on some better news: The Tonner Doll Company has two new Twilight Character Figures to add to your collections.
Art Asylum has released the details on another Ghostbusters Minimates collection, and this one rounds out their Toys R Us Villains Series 3.
If there's one thing that will surely set any force-fueled fanbase on fire, it's news of something fresh within the Star Wars universe. For horror fans, not so much, but take your favorite characters and spin them around and anew by adding a dash of horror into the mix? Boom! You've officially gotten our attention!
There's no denying that John Lithgow's portrayal of Arthur Mitchell, a.k.a. the Trinity Killer, was the best thing that happened to Showtime's Dexter since the series' first season. And now you can bring him into your own home ... if you dare!
It's been a while since we've gotten any new figures from the venerable Buffy the Vampire Slayer line of collectibles, but thanks to Sideshow, that's about to change as they've just announced a new maquette entitled "Throne of the Slayer".
If there's a horror icon who's been memorialized in resin, vinyl, and plastic more often than Friday the 13th's Jason Voorhees, I certainly can't think of it. And now, thanks to Sideshow, we're about to get yet another incarnation of the hockey-masked killer!
The Twilight train roars on, and today it's NECA feeding the fires driving that engine. Prepare for new little boys immortalized in plastic! Will you get the shirtless action figure army you've always dreamed of?
Back in September NECA acquired the majority of the assets of WizKids, Inc., from The Topps Company, Inc., including the award-winning Clix family of games. What does that mean for horror fans? Two potentially awesome new games: Gremlins: Gizmo's Great Escape and Freddy vs. Jason: Forest of Fear. Read on for more details on each.
It could be argued that Terminator 2: Judgment Day is the best of the series; certainly Arnold never looked better than he did in his portrayal of the T-800 sent to protect young John Connor. And thanks to Hot Toys and Sideshow Collectibles, soon you'll be able to add a brand new version of Arnie's T-800 to your collection.
And do they ever! One of Dread Central's favorite corpse-themed collectibles is Sideshow Toys' line of The Dead figures. Standing in at twelve inches tall, these shambling badasses pack a lot of bite. But now ... there's a whole new way to enjoy them!
As part of its "Live by the Sword" line, Sideshow Collectibles has a new Premium Format Figure to tempt you to whip out your charge cards: Vlad the Impaler! Vlad, who is sculpted in stunning 1:4 scale, comes in both standard and exclusive versions with an estimated ship date of 3rd Quarter 2010.
Although the figures are still in a pre-order status only, many retailers have already sold out of their allotment of Living Dead Dolls in Wonderland from Mezco Toyz. But you can still be a part of the fun as Mezco has announced that for the first time ever, they are venturing into the world of books for the LDD line.
Mezco continues hitting it out of the park via its Living Dead Dolls line with two new products ready to be released in late spring/early summer 2010: a Beetlejuice doll and the Series 19 Vampire set.
