Sideshow’s Snake Plissken Sixth Scale Figure Shipping this Month!



plisskensThe Dread Central office is full of horror figures and collectibles, and a good portion of them are from Sideshow. With its release date fast approaching, we thought now would be a good time to remind you about Sideshow Collectibles’ upcoming badass Escape from New York Snake Plissken Sixth Scale Figure, which will be shipping this month.

We have all the details below, including a look at the company’s Exclusive Edition with Snake’s hand holding the nuclear fusion information cassette tape.

Click here to pre-order the Sideshow exclusive Snake Plissken Sixth Scale Figure (there’s a waitlist if you want to take your chances) and here to pre-order the regular version. Each is just $159.99, and you can expect our unboxing video/review as soon as we get our hands on him.

Product Summary:
“Call me Snake.”

Sideshow Collectibles is proud to present the 12″ Snake Plissken Sixth Scale Figure, leading anti-hero of the 80’s cult classic Escape from New York.

Chock full o’ attitude, we’ve brought the all-American escape artist to life with a highly detailed likeness of Snake, as portrayed by actor Kurt Russell. Sporting his full abdomen cobra tattoo, Plissken is decked out in his trademark duds, including eyepatch, muscle shirt, distressed leather jacket, urban camo pants, catcher’s shin guards, and combat boots.

Ready to take on the Duke, we’ve armed the one-eyed warrior with a complete arsenal of modified firepower. Holstered at his side is the USPF-issued sub-machine gun with detachable silencer, scope and spare mags, his sidearm revolver with scope, and an array of throwing stars. Cigarette in one hand, Snake is fully equipped with a radio and homing device – and just so there’s no funny business, he’s shackled up with wrist time-clock and tracker.

To complete the mission, the Sideshow Exclusive Edition includes an additional accessory – the cassette tape containing the President’s top secret nuclear fusion information.

The Snake Plissken Sixth Scale Figure is an ultimate tribute to the 80s cult classic legend and a must-have for fans of John Carpenter’s “Escape” saga!

  • Fully articulated new Snake Plissken body
  • Detailed portrait of Snake Plissken with movie-accurate eyepatch, facial features, and hair

Mattel’s WWE Figures Showing Their Teeth…and Claws…And Other Monster Parts



Mattel likes to keep us on our toes! Even though we attend Toy Fair every year, they still like to throw some surprises at us, often turning up in the toy aisles with no warning whatsoever. Such was the case with last year’s WWE Mutants line, which saw your favorite wrestlers transformed into crocodile men, scorpion creatures, and multi-armed freaks of nature.

This year we’ve got a similar monster theme going, with the horrific personalities utilized being from a more familiar stable.

This lineup includes:

  • Asuka as The Phantom
  • Braun Strowman as Frankenstein
  • Chris Jericho as The Mummy
  • Jake “The Snake” Roberts as The Creature
  • Roman Reigns as The Werewolf
  • Undertaker as The Vampire

Execution is a mixed bag here. Since these are lower priced figures, it’s understandable if some paint and sculpting details are lost in production; and for my taste, the “mishaps” in this line lead more to hilarity than disdain, making me want to buy them all the more.


It’s like those pictures you see of someone trying to replicate a famous baker’s pop culture cake and their attempt comes out resembling a melty, deformed monstrosity. HAPPY BIRTHDAY, TIMMY!! No…don’t cry…aw damnit, Timmy. You tried.

I’m also forced to point and laugh at their Frankenstein. I totally get the patchwork idea presented here, but they seem to have sewn his tank top to his body…and that’s hysterical.

Check out the rest of the line below, and look for the lot in stores and at your favorite online toy dealer now.

Roman Reigns

Sideshow Teaming with Project Raygun on New Court of the Dead Tabletop Game



If you’ve been reading this site for the past few years, you should be well aware of Sideshow’s awesome collectibles known as the Court of the Dead. If you’re as big a fan of the line as we are, then you’ll be excited to hear that a Kickstarter campaign is about to kick off for a tabletop game titled Court of the Dead: Mourners Call.

Mixing creepy cool Court of the Dead artwork and a bunch of awesome new super-detailed 3D miniatures, the game is going to be a must-have for Court fans, as well as any dark fantasy and horror enthusiasts. This highly anticipated campaign marks the latest collaborative effort between Project Raygun and Sideshow, and it will be managed by James Hudson of Druid City Games.

The Kickstarter launch is slated to commence in late April and run through mid-May. Those who contribute to the campaign have a chance to score a bunch of insane exclusives, and you can find out more by clicking here.

“Court of the Dead: Mourners Call is more than just a tabletop game; it’s an immersive in-world experience,” said Tom Gilliland, Sideshow Chief Creative Officer and creator of the Court of the Dead. Through highly-detailed card art and ornate 3D miniatures, players will be transported to the macabre and magical Underworld. Players face grave circumstances: They must balance both cooperative and competitive objectives by working with the other players to appease the morally bankrupt, oppressive celestial overlords in a way that achieves their own individual vision of a unified Underworld, ready to rise up in rebellion.
