San Diego Comic-Con 2014: CineQuest & Benson Entertainment Releasing Exclusive BTVS 'Triangle' Tara FigureSummer is upon us, which means San Diego Comic-Con is just around the corner. Here’s another exclusive heading to the show: “Triangle Tara,” a rare “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” collectible previously offered only in a signed edition at a rather steep price.

From the Press Release:
CineQuest.com and Benson Entertainment are going back in time to release an amazingly rare “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” action figure that was previously only available in a signed edition for $125.

“Triangle” Tara was created especially for Amber Benson by Diamond Select Toys as a way for the actress who played Tara Maclay to raise money to raise funds for her 2006 film Lovers, Liars, and Lunatics. The original run of “Triangle” Tara was only 2,000 figures worldwide. There will be only 300 of the unsigned edition, which comes blister-carded in a white box mailer. Accessories include purse, potion bottle, candle, and book.

The 6″ figure is based on Tara as she appeared in the “Buffy” Season 5 episode “Triangle,” in which Willow and Anya conjure Olaf the Troll while Giles is away from the Magic Box in England.

For the first time and exclusively for San Diego Comic-Con 2014, CineQuest.com is offering the unsigned edition of the figure in association with Benson Entertainment. It is being offered at a special preorder price of $22 for a limited time to attendees for pickup at the show in July. A limited number are being reserved for non-attendees for shipment after the show.

Limited to 300 pieces, the unsigned “Triangle” Tara variant figure will be released at San Diego Comic-Con 2014 (July 24-27) at the CineQuest.com booth (#4738). A limited number will be sold each day of the convention to ensure all attendees have a chance to purchase the variant.

Attendees can preorder the exclusive variant at the special preorder price of $22 at CineQuest.com by clicking here and picking it up at the show. A very limited number have been reserved for members of Club CQ as well as non-attendees of San Diego Comic-Con. Non-attendees residing in the U.S. can preorder here; non-attendees residing outside the U.S. can preorder here.

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!
