The Single Most Badass JAWS Collectible – Ever

Published

on

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!

From the press release:
Mike Schultz has been busy making sharks. Extremely busy. A Missouri 911 operator by night and an artisan by day, Mike’s newest rendition is scheduled to be released sometime next summer to coincide with the anniversary of JAWS.

Due to access of far better reference material, this is an entirely NEW and far more accurate sculpt than Schultz or anyone else has done thus far. Years of research and passion went into making this the ultimate BRUCE maquette fans worldwide have been waiting for. No detail, tooth, or scar was ignored in the process. Spielberg’s art director Joe Alves has also been brought into the project as a consultant to ensure its attention to detail.

According to Schultz, “This model represents the more detailed and slimmer ‘platform Bruce’, post Shark City build, but pre-waterlogged/damaged Bruce depicted later in the film. The skin accuracy and detail is staggering, and when I stare at the finished model even from a distance, it looks like the huge mechanical shark with its urethane skin stretched over a tube steel frame during production of the film. Which is exactly the kind of extreme museum quality accuracy I was striving for.

I’m very excited about this release for myself, and my fellow fans. This is a big, big fish, and a bigger project with several people involved behind the scenes. BRUCE NTT was made by a finfan…for finfans that know and love this film and for anyone just discovering its artistry and mystique, or simply for someone who’s not the biggest fan but wants the ultimate conversation piece.”

Licensing by Universal Studios as a very limited edition official JAWS collectible is planned. This Bruce NTT piece is a full-length nose-to-tail maquette and dwarfs Sideshow’s latest rendition at a little over 3 feet. Further information and photos to be released over the summer. Manufacturer/Distributors are still being sourced. Discussions with HK based HotToys are underway.

Published

on

One of our favorite horror TV shows is Starz’s “Ash vs. Evil Dead,” and one of our favorite moments from the first two seasons is when Ash brings out his “Ashy Slashy” puppet.

If you’re like us and have been wondering when you could get your hands on an Ashy Slashy puppet of your own, today we have good news.

NECA has just announced its prop replica!

You can check out pics of the packaging reveal NECA did over on Facebook below, and then let us know if you’re going to be buying your very own Ash Slashy puppet.

We’ll let you know when the item becomes available for pre-order!

Rundown via NECA:
Every day can be demented play day with your very own Ashy Slashy puppet from Season 2 of Ash vs. Evil Dead! We’ve replicated Ash’s potty-mouthed little doppelganger from the asylum episodes for your (hopefully G-rated) entertainment.

This is a working puppet – insert your hand, and you can move the mouth; plus the arms are poseable thanks to inner articulation. 

Ashy Slashy is approximately 15” tall.

Freddy Krueger, Jason Voorhees, and the Xenomorph Getting Their Own 8-Bit Pop Vinyls

Published

on

Funko has released some delightful horror-themed products over the years, but this just takes the cake. They’ve announced a new line of 8-bit Pop Vinyl figures, which will feature pixelated versions of Freddy Krueger, Jason Voorhees, and the Xenomorph. I never thought I’d say it, but even Freddy Krueger looks cute.

Freddy and Jason will both come in standard editions, in addition to GameStop exclusives based on how they both appeared in their own NES video games. The Xenomorph will also have a Previews exclusive edition depicting it smeared with acid blood. Have a look at the images below to decide which versions you like best. Most of us would probably like to purchase all six!

These adorable (but still horrible) figures will be available in January, so make sure you don’t go bankrupt over Christmas.
