Mezco Is Releasing A “Deadite Ash” Living Dead Doll.. But There’s A Catch!

deaditeashldd

Are you looking for a GROOVY early Christmas gift for yourself? I can help you with that in today’s post!

Many people dread the idea of Black Friday: stores/malls are jammed packed with people, nearly everyone is grumpy [both employee and customer], and everything worth buying is usually sold out by the time you get there. However, if you’re not feeling very brave this year, have no fear – many horror companies are celebrating Black Friday with special deals that won’t require you to leave the comfort and warmth of your couch, and one of those companies is offering up an exclusive toy that you will most definitely want to be home to grab; at least I do. As you can tell by the title, Mezco is releasing a variant of their recently released Ash Williams Living Dead Doll:

“This variant captures Ash’s unique look from the scene where he is possessed by the Deadites. With a trio of facial scars and dead milky-white eyes, this Living Dead Doll perfectly captures the moment before Ash violently cuts off his possessed hand.

Ash comes complete with The Necronomicon. He stands ten inches tall, features five points of articulation, and comes packaged in a collector-friendly, specially die-cut window box.”

For those that have followed warrenisweird for a while or know me in person, know that The Evil Dead series are some of my favorite films. We have seen him survive a night in the cabin, he has fought the Deadites, [and won] he has probably the coolest prosthetic hand ever, and now he’s the latest addition to the Living Dead Dolls family! Now, as the title implies, there is a catch to this release: it is a Black Friday exclusive specially sold through Mezco’s website beginning at 9am EST on November 25th! [that’s two days away!] Ash is selling for a total of $46 and shipping begins in early 2017. But do not just take my word for it, check out the awesome screenshots of the Living Dead Doll itself below

As a huge fan of the Evil Dead franchise, I desperately need this particular Living Dead Doll in my life. [I already have two: this one and this one] But we are not here to talk about me, we’re here to be asking You: What are Your thoughts on Deadite Ash as a Living Dead Doll? Are You planning on picking up one for yourself or would you rather not have him stare at you? [let me know which one in the comments!] Be sure to also go and follow me over on my Facebook page!

An ELVIRA Funko POP! : Arriving For Halloween!

elvirapop

Contrary to what many people believe, I’m not a huge collector of Funko POPs! I have a few [Deadpool, Spider-Man, and Beetlejuice] but I only really pick up the ones that I like the character they are based on.. Unlike some people on the Internet [some people have thousands!] However, there is one that I’m planning on getting, and conveniently – it’s coming out soon! Want a hint? READ ON!

When you hear the name Elvira, only one person should come to mind.. the Halloween icon and symbol of all things spooky: the one and only Mistress Of The Dark! Oh yes, just in time for Halloween and perfect timing to celebrate her 35th Anniversary; the Mistress Of The Dark is getting her very own Funko POP! Looking at the figure, I am about 99.9% sure that this is the first Funko creation with cleavage! I’m still bitter over the fact that I didn’t get a picture with the Mistress herself when she came to comic con, but in a way to defend myself; she had a massive line up, and I wouldn’t have gotten to see the rest of the “con” if I had waited! [I will meet you, someday!] Check out the one, the only, POP! figure based on Elvira: Mistress Of The Dark below!

Naturally, as a huge fan of her’s, both in sense of style, and film; I definitely am excited by this news. It’s been a long time coming for both horror fans and POP! collectors, as it was just a matter of time! Be sure to pick yours up in October when they hit shelves! But the real question is: are you going to pick up an Elvira figure? Why or Why Not? Let me know in the comments! I know for a fact that I will be, and worst case scenario and I don’t get a chance to pick one up; Christmas comes shortly after!

POP! VINYL has such sights to show you: TEN Vinyl Figures I NEED to order

Whether you know them by name, or just for their cutesy figures, Funko is a pop culture licensed-focused toy company that holds more than 150 licenses including: [but not limited to] Lucas Films, Marvel, Hasbro, The Walking Dead, Game Of Thrones, DC Comics, NBA, Sanrio, and Disney. They are considered the number one vinyl collectible seller in the world with over 10 million units sold in the last three years.. As it stands, I’m also a huge fan of these because they even make horror themed figures, making some of our scariest and feared characters, into adorable cuddly guys. Who would have thought you could want to cuddle with characters like Pinhead from Hellraiser? I certainly didn’t.. Unfortunately, I only own one [with plans to get more] right now, one of Beetlejuice; which happens to be one of my favorite Tim Burton films. [see my figure here]

This got me thinking; I know there’s figures for many movies, but just how many of them do I really want; and given the chance; how much is it going to cost me? I decided to pay a trip to Funko website and see just what kind of figures they offer. Maybe this can be taken as an almost catalog of sorts, mentioning the items I want – but probably won’t be getting.. at least for a long time. Keeping with the horror-theme of the blog, I will be sharing only the horror themed figures that I like. So here we go: the 10 Pop! figures I desperately want. [note: many of the figures are $9.99]


A Nightmare On Elm Street : Freddy Krueger

as obvious as obvious gets, A Nightmare On Elm Street is one of, if not my, favorite horror film. Freddy is both terrifying with his burns and claw glove, but he’s also so adorable you want to pinch his cheek..but with burns like that, the skin might peel sorry..that’s gross! With a cheap price of only $9.99, how could you possibly go wrong?!

[order Freddy Krueger here!]


Trick ‘r Treat : Sam

Trick ‘r Treat is to many, including myself, the definitive Halloween film. It’s funny, it can be scary, and it even has a moral behind it! the figure of Sam, [short for Samhain] is as adorable as he is in film. Though with that logic, he’s probably as dangerous as he is in film as well. If you want Sam as much as I do, he’s gonna run you $12.99 and is available for preorder now: with shipping dates starting in July.

[pre-order Sam here!]


SAW : Billy

perhaps it’s just me, but I’ve always found Billy to be the real unsung hero of the Saw films. In theory, he is the one who tells the victims how to save themselves so they can go on with their lives.. that’s heroism, isn’t it? Just me? sigh. Anyway, Billy comes as just the character without his signature tricycle, but looks just as menacing as always. Coming in at $9.99, Billy is here to help you make a decision: buy or die!

[order Billy the Puppet here!]


House Of 1000 Corpses : Captain Spaulding

now, anyone who’s seen House Of 1000 Corpses knows that Spaulding is fucking crazy. with his laugh, his creepy American clown suit, and his damn good chicken; It isn’t until the film’s sequel, The Devil’s Rejects that Spaulding really shines. Easily one of the most vicious killers on this list. Captain Spaulding will cost you a grand total of $9.99

[order Captain Spaulding here!]


Scream : Ghostface

as proven by my last post, Scream has officially become a newer favorite [I had only seen it once before, and that was a while ago..] The craziness of the film as a whole, the horror movie references, and most of all: the screams. Ghostface is one of a kind, and with his vinyl figure being so cute, I can only imagine a horde of them running at me. At only $9.99, Ghostface is essential; especially being my new found love in horror.

[order Ghostface here!]


Frankenstein : Frankenstein’s Monster

arguably the coolest classic monster film, [and my favorite] Frakenstein is pretty bad-ass. Even this figure captures his creepy, signature walk with his “zombie walk” hands up. Usually, I’d complain about the fact that he should be in black and white, but the real reason he’s not – is because he glows in the dark! For that reason, Frankie is going to cost you a little more at $19.99 !

[order Frankenstein here!]


The Bride Of Frankenstein : Frankenstein’s Bride

Naturally, if I was going to buy Frankenstein, I’d probably be the type to order both, and get his Bride as well. I’d have them sharing a shelf, standing side-by-side: because as with Frankie, his wife glows in the dark too! Of course, the glow in the dark aspect raises the price, so this pretty lady is going to cost you $16.99

[order Bride Of Frankenstein here!]


Army Of Darkness : Ash

Ash from the Evil Dead trilogy is one of my favorite horror heroes, he’s even got a chainsaw for a hand.. if that’s not convincing enough; he also has his signature boomstick, which is a selling point alone for me. Being as he’s a popular figure, he’s a little on the steep side at a whopping $12.99 , but if you like Evil Dead enough, you’ll find a reason to buy it. I know I will..

[order Ash here!]


The Crow : The Crow

does The Crow count as horror? ..Cause I’m going to count it as horror. I haven’t seen the film in years, but I’d certainly grab it on DVD if I had the chance. The real reason I’d get it though would be to honor Brandon Lee‘s untimely death, because as cliche as it sounds – it happened too soon.. Time will tel how the remake will be; after all, Tom Hilddleson is in talks to play Draven.. but that’s a story for another day. Either way, this figure will cost you a grand total of $8.99 which is a steal, compared to some of the others on this list.

[order Crow here!]


The Silence Of The Lambs : Hannibal Lecter

Before the TV show Hannibal, the character was in a film that horror fans should know by name already; The Silence Of The Lambs. Or as I called it, just another movie that scared the crap out of me when I was younger. The coolest thing about this figure is the fact that he’s got the face mask on, and he’s strapped to the dolly/chair device. making him as dangerous as he is cute.. so long as he doesn’t eat my liver with a nice chianti.. you’re looking at $9.99 to not get eaten by this man.

[order Hannibal Lecter here!]


Through picking and choosing through ten Pop! Vinyl figures that I like, and would want to buy, I’ve only come to one real conclusion: I better have enough cash to buy them all! and these are just the horror ones! Obviously, this is just a taste of what Funko has to offer, with bobble-heads, figures, and even stuffed figures known as “Fabrikations” ! They’re a really cool company I strongly recommend looking into; even if you feel the need to spend tons of money! So now I turn to you, the reader, which figure[s] would you want to order? Are you all about the glow in the dark Frankenstein, or maybe Pinhead? Maybe one I didn’t even mention?! Let me know in the comment section below:
