When I first heard about plans for what would later become the Marvel Cinematic Universe, my immediate concern was that the supernatural elements of the Marvel Comics Universe would be minimized in order to make the movies seem less fantastical and more grounded in reality. Nearly a decade on, and I’m glad to say that the MCU certainly hasn’t shied away from the supernatural, with magical characters such as Thor, Ghost Rider, Iron Fist, Doctor Strange, and even Ego the Living Planet all getting their moments in the spotlight.
The Robbie Reyes incarnation of Ghost Rider was a recurring character in Season 4 of ABC’s hit MCU show “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.,” and Sideshow Collectibles will be releasing a Hot Toys action figure based on this particular depiction of the Spirit of Vengeance. The figure will be a Toy Fair exclusive and will only be available in selected markets towards the end of 2017.
From the Press Release:
“I only kill asesinos who deserve it. It’s vengeance, chica.” – Ghost Rider
Finally the legendary Ghost Rider has returned in one of the most popular Marvel television series – “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.”! Making his debut on TV screens, the terrifying Ghost Rider first appeared in Season 4 with Robbie Reyes being the new host, gaining the power to transform into the merciless criminal killer, eventually joining other S.H.I.E.L.D. members to battle against Lucy Bauer and take out the enemies.
Hot Toys is thrilled to introduce our latest television masterpiece – the 1/6th scale Ghost Rider collectible figure from the Marvel series as a Toy Fair Exclusive item only available in selected markets!
Expertly crafted based on the appearance of Ghost Rider, the collectible figure features a newly sculpted skull with LED light-up function and articulated lower jaw, a fire-shaped hair sculpture, and a finely tailored costume to create impressive likeness.

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.
