Evil Toys at SDCC!
With San Diego Comic Con only a week away (July 23-27th), we are getting pelted with information on the show from all sides. It’s now become impossible to buy even half of the exclusives on sale there, as you’d have to be rich AND some are so limited, you’d need a small army just to stand in line for you. Dread Central helps make sense of all this mess by bringing you a little mini checklist for the toy-loving horror fan.
