Toy Fair 2012: A Preview of NECA’s Evil Dead 2 Action Figures

IT’S NECA TIME! Yes, kiddies, those fine folks who brought you Lost Boys, Robocop, 60 Freddies, 70 Jasons and 200 Gremlins are now tackling a film near and dear to our hearts and inexplicably overlooked by the toy gods: EVIL DEAD 2!

In true fanboy fashion, NECA has packed each figure with stunning detail, killer accessories and a likeness sure to make you click “PRE-ORDER” immediately. These figures are a snapshot of their respective scenes with bits included you’ll want to collect across the board for a complete Ashiverse…even if that means you are buying the same Ash body a few times!

Speaking of which, the core Ash body includes shoulder, elbow, wrist, head, waist, hip, mid-thigh, knee and ankle articulation, which you’ll note is a lot for a NECA movie figure. My one gripe will be the dreaded V crotch, which is generally only good for whorish action figures with lousy father figures. To compensate, NECA put in those mid-thigh swivels which will somewhat right the leg as it swings out when you attempt a raised leg pose…perhaps to try and squash a pesky demon-possessed hand? Accessories include:

  • Deadite Ash – Reel-to-reel recorder, the Necronomicon and Linda’s possessed head.
  • A Farewell to Arms Ash – Possessed forearm to swap out with his stumpy arm, possessed severed hand, double-barrel shotgun and a demon blood-covered axe!

    Deadite Ash and Farewell to Arms Ash will hit stores later this month; pre-order yours from Amazon below!

    Published

    on

    It is no secret we’re BIG fans of Funko’s Pop! Vinyl line here at DC HQ, and now they’ve announced a new series that has made our hearts just about burst… read on for a look at Pop! Movies: Jurassic Park, heading our way in February. The regular figures are awesome on their own, but wait until you see the exclusives!

    From the Funko Blog:
    Jurassic Park fans, get excited! To celebrate the 25th anniversary of the iconic film’s appearance on the silver screen, Jurassic Park is coming to Pop!

    This series of Pop! features paleontologist Dr. Grant, Jurassic Park CEO John Hammond, mathematician Dr. Malcolm, and embryo-smuggler Dennis Nedry. (Keep an eye out for Dr. Ellie Sattler in Pop! Rides coming soon.)

    We couldn’t forget the Jurassic Park dinosaurs! Featured in this line are the great T. rex, Velociraptor, and Dilophsaurus. Look for the Dilophosaurus chase, a rarity of 1-in-6.

    Be on the lookout for exclusives. At Target you can find a wounded Dr. Malcolm, and the Dennis Nedry and Dilophosaurus 2-pack is available only at Entertainment Earth.

    Vintage Toy Finder ALERT! If You Collect This Is a MUST-READ!

    Published

    on

    Anyone who knows me knows that when it comes to collectibles, I’m like a moth to a flame. Especially vintage toys. I, like many of you, grew up in a dysfunctional family circus. When I reached a certain age, my parents saw fit to take my most beloved toys and give them away to younger kids or just trash them completely. I’m still devastated. My childhood was pretty much nil, and I’ve been swimming in chaos ever since.

    Once things finally “calmed down” a bit, I began reclaiming these relics of happier times. Damned straight I got an 18″ Kenner Alien, a Stretch X-Ray doll, a Mighty Men and Monster Maker, the Bermuda Triangle board game, etc. I revel in them as few items make me as happy as they do. As a result I always keep my eye out for things, specifically horror related toys I may have missed.

    Enter 1967’s Ka-Bala, the most insane and intricate Ouija board I’ve ever seen. I don’t use Ouijas, but once I saw this, it was love at first shiver. The problem with collecting toys like this is that rarely can you find them complete. For Christmas Debi tracked down Ka-Bala for me, BUT we were missing the instructions. There’s not much sense in playing or having a board game if you don’t know said rules.

    I scoured the Internet but only came up with a few sites that were charging astronomical prices for replacement parts and/or instructions. It was ludicrous. So I busted out my Creepy resources and asked our resident board game loony David Hahn, who writes Last Meeple Standing for us, for some help. Within days he and his wondrous wife, Tiffany (who also works with David on Meeple), led me to a site called Lost and Found Vintage Toys maintained by Brenda Roudabush.

    Brenda, who says she has “gotten to play happiness broker several times reuniting vintage kids with their old long lost toys,” got right to work and sent me some amazing scans of the instructions and more.

    After piquing my interest with her knowledge of such things, I can’t recommend her more. If you’re a collector, and chances are very good that you are because, well you’re reading this, make sure to check out the site listed above. It’s like an encyclopedia of happiness! Enjoy, and tell her Creepy sent ya!

    For even more fun check out my other go-to toy site, Raymond Castile’s Gallery of Monster Toys. Quick trivia re Ray… He’s the spitting image of Coffin Joe and played young Zé do Caixão in José Mojica Marins’ 2008 film Embodiment of Evil. How friggin’ cool is that? It’s a small and sometimes wonderful world, I tell ya!

    Gremlins 2 Blind Bag Is Adorable and Awesome

    Published

    on

    “G2, baby. G2!”

    I’m not going to lie to you guys and say that I know what this Blind Bag Collection is. It seems from the slick name that one shouldn’t know what’s exactly inside… but maybe I’m missing something.

    Anyhow, none of that really matters as long as the Blind Bag Collection boasts such awesome shite as this Gremlins 2: The New Batch one from Monogram International does, then it’s all good.

    The set seems to include a collection figural keyrings that include such classic Gremlins characters as Combat Gizmo, Brownie, Penny, Phantom, Stripe, Greta, Gizmo, Flasher, George, and Lightning Gremlin and Bat Gremlin.

    You can check out pics from the “Gremlins Series 2 Blind Bag Collection” below as well as a fun unboxing video. After all that make sure to hit us up and let us know what you think!

    For more cool stuff, make sure to check out Monogram International on Facebook HERE.
