Last Toys on the Left
We've got Slimer, Stay Puft Marshmallow Man, and even an angry Stay Puft on the way as a San Diego Comic-Con exclusive. Now Diamond Select Toys rounds out its rotocast bank collection with the iconic Ghostbusters logo.
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.
San Diego Comic-Con is SOLD OUT, meaning there will be more people than ever before gunning for the hottest convention exclusives. Dread Central does our part to help navigate the waters with a round-up of the bloody best the show has to offer. We kick things off with Mezco, who will be injecting a healthy dose of Hellboy into SDCC 09.
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. Now...we get a somber piece. 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 ...
Mezco's Cinema of Fear is the new reigning champion of blood, guts, and plastic, bringing little horrors to fans across the world. This 7-inch series of figures adds new pieces in the scale collectors have come to love but approaches the classic baddies in ways we've never seen before. Now, the Mez takes on Rob Zombie's H2!
If your house is anything like ours, you're always on the looking for a cool looking new collectible to add to the collection. And if it's a zombie, then all the better! Today FearWerx announced a fellow you're sure to want to bring home: War of the Dead: Z•E•R•O - Zombie Type One.
Diamond Select Toys knows who you’re gonna call and adds Ghostbusters 2’s Dr. Ray Stantz and the first-ever Glow-in-the-Dark Slimer to its popular Minimates collectible line with the release of this two-pack. Designed and sculpted by Art Asylum, each 2” Minimate features removable and interchangeable parts as well as 14 points of articulation.
From the insanely popular "babies turned supernatural creatures of the night" doll line we've come to know as Living Dead Dolls from Mezco Toys comes their first release for Rob Zombie's H2. Dig on little Mikey! Awwww ... he's so ... umm ... well this one is a little disturbing. Stay tuned for more details on how you can make this crumbly looking fella your own!
Bif Bang Pow, creators of some excellent Flash Gordon, Big Lebowski and the upcoming Dexter figures announced they had a Twilight Zone license not too long ago. Now we get a sneak preview of the first piece!
Medicom Toys has had a Disney license for some time now, and for good reason. Not only are their releases spot on, but they throw in unexpected twists on beloved characters. Disney may not delve into our world often, but Medicom is making sure we get some killer collectibles.
The good folks over at Hot Toys provided us with several images of their latest collectible, Terminator: Salvation 1/6th Scale John Connor, and this thing looks real enough to have a profanity laden meltdown!
Stumbled across these listings that can't even be found on the Jun Planning website and were not even shown at NY Toyfair!
We don't have a lot of details other than the teaser image below, but Nomad just sent over an update from the marketing team at Hot Toys letting us know that the company has acquired the Resident Evil 5 (or Biohazard 5 as it's known in Japan) license from Capcom and will be releasing 1/6th scale collectible figures under their Video Game Masterpieces Series.
You've just gotta love SOTA Toys. As soon as it seems they've reached the pinnacle of badassery, they drop another cool figure on us that absolutely must become part of our collections.
Do you remember the great Frankenstein Flivver? No? Well look it up and get some culture, man! Hot-rods and monsters go hand-in-hand like peanut butter and jelly (minus the botulism of course), and Mezco Toyz is looking to bring these speed demons to a whole new audience.
