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…
Dark Shadows Werewolf Action Figure (from Spectre Toys): A Gothic soap opera that originally aired from 1966-1971, “Dark Shadows” featured many storylines that were at the time unprecedented in daytime television – ghosts, vampires, werewolves, zombies, witches, time travel, and parallel universes…to name a few! Now you can celebrate the classic supernatural series with this incredibly detailed 8-inch tall, MEGO style werewolf action figure based on the character portrayed by actor Chris Jennings.
“TWILIGHT ZONE” OFFERINGS FROM BIF BANG POW:
Talky Tina and Willie Action Figures: A set of two individually packaged MEGO style 8-inch action figures. Long before Chucky, there was Talky Tina, star of one of the most spine-chilling episodes of “The Twilight Zone” ever aired. In the show titled “Living Doll” that also starred Telly Savalas, Tina kept coming back and coming back, no matter what he did to try to destroy her. If you remember that frightening episode, you may think twice before ordering this item. But don’t worry. After all, she’s only an innocent action figure … or is she? Tina features fabric clothing, multiple points of articulation, and a retro design right out of the 1970s!
Based on the ultra-eerie 1962 The Twilight Zone episode titled “The Dummy” that starred Cliff Robertson, this almost-too-real rendering of Willie may make your skin crawl. But no need to feel threatened. He comes in actual fabric clothing and is designed after very popular action figures of the 1970s. Won’t you give Willie a try?
Gremlin Bobble Head from the episode “Nightmare at 20,000 Feet”: This ultra-creepy bobble head is authentically designed and exactly painted in color and measures 6 inches tall x 5 inches wide x 3 inches long. Inspired by one of the most memorable scenes from the show, the remarkable airplane-wing base has Gremlin sitting on the engine housing, tearing pieces from the wing! The piece also features the perspective from the inside of the airplane cabin with the window that faces Gremlin. You’ll be having nightmares yourself if you let this wobbler get away from you! Limited edition of 504 pieces.
Talky Tiny Bobble Head from the episode “Living Doll”: Full-color version of the previously released 6-1/2-inch tall, talking resin bobble head. Limited edition of 504 pieces. Talky Tina speaks the following phrases:
“My name is Talky Tina, and I love you very much.”
“My name is Talky Tina, and I don’t think I like you.”
“My name is Talky Tina, and you’d better be nice to me.”
“My name is Talky Tina, and you’ll be sorry.”
“My name is Talky Tina, and I’m going to kill you.”
Invader Bobble Head from the episode “The Invaders”: Flee in terror, the Invaders are back! Are they spacemen? Aliens? Miniature robots? Watch episode number 51 and find out. Standing about 6-1/2 inches tall, from the classic Twilight Zone episode “The Invaders,” comes the latest incredible full-color bobble head available exclusively at Comic-Con International this summer. Limited edition of just 504 pieces.
Mystic Seer Bobble Head from the episode “Nick of Time”: “The hand belongs to Mr. Don S. Carter, male member of a honeymoon team en route across the Ohio countryside to New York City. In one moment they will be subjected to a gift most humans never receive in a lifetime. For one penny they will be able to look into the future. The time is now, the place is a little diner in Ridgeview, Ohio, and what this young couple doesn’t realize is that this town happens to lie on the outskirts of the Twilight Zone.” Based on the classic episode “Nick of Time” that starred William Shatner, this terrific full-color Mystic Seer Bobble Head measures about 6-1/2 inches tall x 3 inches wide x 2-1/4 inches deep, and it even includes fortune telling cards as part of the packaging. Wouldn’t this look great on top of your TV set? Limited edition of 1,000 pieces.
Kanamit Bobble Head from the episode “To Serve Man”: Based on the rather disturbing “To Serve Man” episode from 1962, this remarkable color version bobble head from Bif Bang Pow! presents Kanamit, a considerably covert character set on adding mankind to his menu of delectable dishes. The alien emissary is incredibly and authentically detailed in 7-inch scale, holding his “cook book.” Buy him, admire him, but don’t invite him to cook dinner! Limited edition of 504 pieces.
DEXTER FROM BIF BANG POW … not a “classic” yet, but we think he’s a classy guy.
Dexter and Harrison Bobble Head: It’s time to play daddy! From the hit Showtime television series “Dexter”, here’s part-time serial killer Dexter holding little baby Harrison … and both of their heads bobble! A blood-splatter expert for the Miami Police Department by day, Dexter spends his nights murdering other serial killers. Now this so-called “good guy” – and his son – are available in this 7-inch resin bobble head!
