While most of us are gearing up for this year’s Halloween festivities, Epic Pictures Group has its eye on 2017, when new masks based on characters from fan favorite Turbo Kid will be released. Ready to look ahead? Then read on!
From the Press Release:
Epic Pictures Group announced today the expansion of the TURBO KID merchandising line with new latex masks based on characters from the film which will be produced by Ghoulish Productions and available in time for Halloween 2017. The announcement was made today in conjunction with the San Diego Comic-Con by Epic Pictures CEO Patrick Ewald and Co-Founder Shaked Berenson.
“TURBO KID really connected with an audience in a profound way, and there are legions of fans out there,” commented Berenson. “It’s fitting that this dystopian story, following its successful film festival and theatrical runs and now enjoying its home entertainment life, will be a costume of choice for Halloween revelers,” commented Ewald.
Ghoulish Productions CEO Diego Esponda commented, “We are looking forward to bringing the characters to life and support the already extensive cosplay here at Comic-Con.
Following its world premiere at the 2015 Sundance Film Festival, the film won a series of awards, including an Audience Award at 2015’s SXSW Film Festival, the Audience Award at the 2015 Fantasia International Film Festival, and the Best Feature Audience Award at Fantaspoa 2015, and was recently honored at The Saturn Awards. The film was released in August 2015 by Epic Pictures Releasing, Epic Pictures Group’s U.S. distribution division, and is currently available on DVD and Blu-Ray.
TURBO KID follows “The Kid” (Munro Chambers), an orphan left to survive on his own through drought-ridden nuclear winter, traversing the Wasteland on his BMX, scavenging for scraps to trade for a scant supply of water in a 1997, ruined post-apocalyptic world. When his perpetually chipper, pink-haired new best friend Apple (Laurence Leboeuf) is kidnapped by a minion of evil overlord Zeus (Michael Ironside), The Kid summons the courage of his comic book hero and prepares to deliver turbocharged justice to Zeus, his buzzsaw-handed sidekick Skeletron, and their vicious masked army.
NECA Announces Ashy Slashy Puppet Replica
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
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.
