Diamond Select Signs License for Pacific Rim Uprising Collectibles

Published

on

Diamond Select Toys has locked down another licensing agreement for some pretty cool collectibles; and if you’re a Pacific Rim fan, you’ll want to read on for the details about the new Pacific Rim Uprising figures that are heading our way!

From the Press Release:
The 2017 blockbuster season has just started, but the countdown has already begun for one of the most highly anticipated movies of 2018 – Pacific Rim Uprising from Legendary and Universal Pictures. In 2013’s Pacific Rim, director Guillermo del Toro unveiled the first chapter of this spectacular universe of monsters and mechs, in which human-piloted machines called Jaegers rise to defend humanity against gigantic otherworldly monsters called Kaijus. The long-awaited sequel, Pacific Rim Uprising, takes the action to the next level with a sleek new generation of technologically advanced Jaeger mechs; a ferocious new breed of Kaiju monsters; and of course, a massive new line of toys and collectible merchandise from Diamond Select Toys!

Diamond Select Toys (DST) will offer a wide range of Pacific Rim Uprising products starting in 2018, including Select action figures, Minimates mini-figures, Vinimates vinyl figures, Gallery PVC dioramas, vinyl coin banks, replicas with lights and sound, and housewares. The movie will premiere in U.S. theaters on February 23, 2018; and DST plans to have the first products ship in time for the premiere.

“We’re incredibly excited to work on Pacific Rim Uprising, and we’re honored that Legendary came to us with this amazing opportunity to work on such a thrilling franchise property,” said DST president Chuck Terceira. “The original film was an epic, visually enthralling work of art; and we’ve had a blast working with the new Jaeger and Kaiju designs, turning them into some of the most detailed products we’ve ever made!”

All of DST’s products are available through independent comic shops, specialty stores, and online toy retailers, with selected items also available at Toys”R”Us and toysrus.com. Certain styles and characters will be available at all locations, while some will be exclusive to specific retailers.

In addition to new Jaegers and Kaiju, Pacific Rim Uprising will also showcase exciting new characters, as actors John Boyega (Star Wars: The Force Awakens) and Scott Eastwood (Suicide Squad) join returning cast members Rinko Kikuchi, Charlie Day, and Burn Gorman alongside some exciting new faces.

Produced by Guillermo del Toro, Pacific Rim Uprising will be directed by Steven S. DeKnight, original showrunner for “Marvel’s Daredevil” on Netflix. DeKnight was also the creator of “Spartacus” on Starz and was previously a writer and director on both “Buffy: The Vampire Slayer” and “Angel.” Diamond Select Toys previously created products for “Marvel’s Daredevil” as well as for both “Buffy” and “Angel.”

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.
