    NECA Announces Ashy Slashy Puppet Replica

    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.
