Diamond Select Toys has announced the latest property to join its horror line-up of fully poseable action figures: Mad Monster Party, the classic film by Rankin/Bass which brought all of pop culture’s most famous monsters to the big screen in 1967.

From the Press Release:
Diamond Select Toys knows monsters — after all, the Maryland-based collectibles company has been making toys and statues of vampires, aliens and werewolves for almost 13 years.

“The Rankin/Bass Christmas specials have gotten a lot of merchandise over the last decade, but there have been almost zero collectibles made for Mad Monster Party,” said Chuck Terceira, director of Diamond Select Toys. “Now that the movie has been released on DVD and seen by a whole new audience for the first time, it feels like the right time to give fans new and old the toys they deserve. The film combines all of the classic monster archetypes with the timeless appeal of Rankin/Bass animation, and we want our toy line to represent the figures you see on the screen as closely as possible.”

Mad Monster Party hit theaters in the spring of 1967 and featured the vocal talents of legendary horror actor Boris Karloff and comedienne Phyllis Diller as well as parodies of many of the famous monsters, including Dracula, Frankenstein, the Wolf Man, the Mummy, the Hunchback, the Invisible Man, the Creature from the Black Lagoon, the Bride of Frankenstein, and Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. First released on DVD in 2003 and receiving a special edition in 2009, the film has only added to its already sizable group of dedicated fans.

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.
