Bif Bang Pow! Officially Announces New 3-3/4-Inch Twilight Zone Action FiguresDuring last month’s Toy Fair we got word that Bif Bang Pow! is giving “The Twilight Zone” the vintage treatment with six 3-3/4″ figures coming in the first wave, and now we have more details and official photos to share.

From the Press Release:
World-renowned manufacturer Bif Bang Pow! announced a creative partnership with ZICA Toys in conjunction with David Lee, makers of high-quality retro-style toys and action figures, to produce a line of “The Twilight Zone” 3-3/4-inch retro action figures scheduled to ship in the fall of 2014.

The collection will focus on some of the most iconic characters from “The Twilight Zone” series, including William Shatner’s nervous airline passenger Bob Wilson and the Gremlin that wants him to crash, both from the terrifying episode “Nightmare at 20,000 Feet”; the sly alien Kanamit from “To Serve Man”; the Invader from Agnes Moorehead’s “The Invaders” episode; Burgess Meredith’s avid reader Henry Bemis from “Time Enough at Last”; and Talky Tina, the doll that spells doom for Telly Savalas in the “Living Doll” episode.

These 3-3/4-inch retro action figures will be produced in classic black-and-white, matching Bif Bang Pow!’s popular 8-inch line of “Twilight Zone” figures, accompanied by an extremely limited edition color series.

“We’re excited for our ‘Twilight Zone’ action figures to be the first Bif Bang Pow! property to ‘enter another dimension’ in 3-3/4-inch scale,” said Jason Labowitz, President of Bif Bang Pow!. “It’s been great to work with a notable company like ZICA Toys to create these action figures for avid fans and collectors of the celebrated TV series.”

“ZICA Toys is very excited to be working with Bif Bang Pow! on their new lines of retro 3-3/4-inch scale action figures,” said Craig Owen, Owner of ZICA Toys LLC. “They’ve got some really great properties planned for this format, and I’m looking forward to helping them make some very cool stuff!”

“The Twilight Zone” 3-3/4-inch action figures are now available for pre-order at Entertainment Earth; click here for more info.

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!
