#SDCC17: New Twin Peaks Monitor Mate to Cast a Mysterious Presence at San Diego Comic-Con

Published

on

The San Diego Comic-Con is heading our way in just a few more months, and the first 2017 SDCC-exclusive item from Entertainment Earth has been revealed: a new “Twin Peaks” Monitor Mate Bobble based on the town’s iconic welcome sign.  We’re thrilled to be able to give our readers the first look and provide the details.

From the Press Release:
And so it begins! With the new Showtime limited event series that premiered this past Sunday (May 21, 2017), Entertainment Earth announces its first 2017 San Diego Comic-Con Convention Exclusive – the “Welcome to Twin Peaks” Sign Monitor Mate Bobble.

“TWIN PEAKS” debuted in 1990 and, in retrospect, was a harbinger of the Golden Age of Television. Widely regarded as one of the best television dramas of all time, it mixed mystery, horror, and soap opera into one surreal package, delighting and mystifying audiences. Now, you can celebrate the return of the award-winning television series “TWIN PEAKS” on Showtime.

Let your office mates know how much you missed Laura Palmer and the quirky characters of Twin Peaks, Washington, with this Monitor Mate. Perched high atop your computer workstation, fly your flag of fandom for the once and future king of prime time melodramas. The sign looks much like the famed sign from the series, apart from being scaled down to fit on top of your computer monitor and being attached to springs for a pleasing bobbly effect.

Crafted of resin, this colorful sign will add mystery to the decor of any office. It attaches to your computer – or any surface with a non-damaging adhesive pad. This official “TWIN PEAKS” collectible from Bif Bang Pow! enhances the room and makes an excellent gift for any fan of the series.

Fans attending San Diego Comic-Con 2017 will be the first to grab the “Welcome to Twin Peaks” Sign Monitor Mate, which has a limited production run of 1,200 pieces, at San Diego Comic-Con on July 20, 2017, in the Entertainment Earth booth (#2343).

(*NOTE: This item will first be sold during San Diego Comic-Con 2017 at Entertainment Earth Booth #2343. If supplies remain after the show, pre-orders will be filled and shipped to you then – in August 2017.)

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!
