|'Kids these days. No respect for the classics!'|
Pennywise, John of RobotMonsterEtcEtc recently sent the Funko Horror Classics Chucky vinyl figure!
Honestly, I've never seen any of the Chucky films. But I remember when the 'My Buddy' dolls first appeared on the scene, and the idea of such a doofy toy becoming a killing machine does have it's charms.
That gem is this little ghost girl right here, and she's just in time for Halloween!
the creators of Emily Strange blatantly ripped-off? The girl from The Ring? Lydia Deetz?
Ghoul Girl comes with a little matching bear (who seems to have lost one of his button eyes. 'Will you help me find it?' may be heard in the middle of the night, echoing from some-no-where like a breathless whisper), a cloth skirt (which are generally a pain, I'd prefer it be painted on, but it's cute on Wednesday here) and a more rubberized hairpiece instead of the general LEGO plastic.
Sadly she does not glow in the dark, which is a massive missed opportunity. But I absolutely love her black/white/grey color scheme. She looks like she stepped right out of a black and white movie or tv show!
Back in 2004 I wasn't collecting Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. But there were a couple being released in conjunction with the updated toon of the time that I just couldn't resist. Usagi Yojimbo, Toddler Turtles, and this guy: Turtle Titan Michaelangelo.
Being an unabashed superhero fan and a not yet fully realized TMNT fan, I just had to pick this guy up off the toy aisle shelves.
But he's such a wonderful figure visually that his pose limitations are completely forgivable.
Turtle Titan Mikey came with an arm mounted turtle shell shield and a grappling hook.
