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. Ghost Rider also comes with 2 styles of chains and a number of fire effect accessories to simulate him using his superpowers. He will be standing on a fire-themed figure stand with Ghost Rider nameplate and the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. logo.

Vintage Toy Finder ALERT! If You Collect This Is a MUST-READ!
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!
