Posted on: October 24th, 2009 Collector’s Edge – Halloween Ho’down
I have always been surprised that this line has lasted. I always, always see them on clearance around my area. To their credit, I did buy their board game for a friend one Christmas. Nothing says Christmas like a bunch of dead kids. However, I really like this line cause I have always loved the Alice In Wonderland stories. One thing I can say for sure about this line of figures is that they have always been excellent.
Old School Horror
It is amazing how our society has progressed from the subtle horror of the black and white era to the blood soaked glory of todays films. I happen to have an appreciation for both, but sometimes you just gotta watch the classics, and for me none is better than The Creature From The Black Lagoon. Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE King Kong in B&W, but there is just something about this movie that pushes it so well for me. I am just amazed that they pulled it off as well as they did considering the era’s limitations. This is an excellent statue worthy of shelf space.
Still A Classic
God Bless H.P. Lovecraft. I mean, just look at all his works have inspired. And look at this bad boy. Awesomeness. And speaking of Lovecraft, Can you imagine Christmas songs to the tune of Chuthulu? I can. In fact, I have some to share. Want to know how to get your hands on them? Comment on your favorite Horror collectable on my FACEBOOK page and I will send you some amazing freaking Christmas music, Promise. You will NOT be sorry.
It’s Not Halloween Without The Zombies
This is amazing cause it capture THE BEST MOMENT in any survival horror game. Resident Evil. The very first time you come across a zombie and you get this awesome cinematic that just sets the mood in all the right places. Itchy, Tasty…….
Is it just me or is this movie very funny. It scared the Hell out of my parents, but I sat there and watched it and laughed. My friend will not let this figure in his house cause it creeps him out to no end. I am sure that at some point in time it was over the top scary, but how? Can anyone explain this to me?
If any of you follow Ryan, our kindly founder, on Facebook, you more than likely saw our day long faceoff over Nightmare Before Christmas. I won’t go into details here, but needless to say it was a very interesting day. I am a NBX whore. I have been since it opened in theatres and I had opening day tickets. I sat in an audience who just didn’t ‘get’ it for some reason. And every year Disney makes some really cool, and some really awful, NBX stuff for their store. This year is a bad ass set of dishes and more. The above is the candy bowl, but they have a whole lot more there.
This doll creeps me the Hell Out. It reminds me of this clown marionette I had once. It was evil and creepy and I had to burn it and there was green smoke. True Story. Ask fellow writer Josh. He remembers Evil Clown. Anyways, this is just a freaking creepy puppet, never mind the fact that if you see it you are in a life or death situation no doubt.
Do I really need to say anything more about this one?
Weaponry Of The Hunters
I gotta give the Predator’s one thing, they have awesome weapons. And look! Now you can have your own disk of death, complete with a severed Predator Hand to display it on! Just don’t ask about the Predator it came from. He’s trying to survive with one arm but all he can do is flip burgers at Carnivore King back on the home world.
For Those Days When You Have Something Red On You
To me, this is quite possibly one of the best zombie movies ever made. It has fun, makes fun of other zombie flicks, and best of all they play TimeSplitters, one of the best FPS’s EVER!!! If my friend turned into a zombie, I’d keep him on a chain out back or find a collar like the ones in Fido, a great little indie movie. (look it up, it’s very much worth it)
Eat This Predator
Aliens could kick Predators asses all over the galaxy. Yep, they could. And this is the must have for any Alien fan – The Queen Box Set. I had one until the fire, and I know Ryan has one in his house so one day while he is asleep I will sneak in and steal it. Then when he realizes its gone I will say it was his dog cause I have this whole evil mastermind plan to frame the dog. Don’t worry, his dog classifies as ‘cute’ so even if the dog really did do it, no one would be mad at it cause it’s just so cute….
Gavin’s Most Wanted
Did mention how much I love NBX? I love this piece cause it takes me back to the days when I was at the McNay is San Antonio for the big traveling Nightmare Before Christmas exhibit with all the sets and puppets and more. I love the McNay and I loved this exhibit. It was absolutely amazing. And then I had to sit by the display that housed the vampires at Planet Hollywood in downtown San Antonio every time. Maybe I should see a therapist or something?
