Spotlight on FUNKO's "Horror Classics" Vinyl Figures!


Doing a spotlight this evening on FUNKO's Horror Classics "Mystery Minis" Figures! Released in 2013, these vinyl toys are cutesty versions of some of Horror's biggest and best know Icons!
Thanks to the kindness of "Chris Tank" and some sellers on Ebay I finally got myself a complete set! 

When you buy a box you are in the dark of figure you are going to get, hence the name "Blind Box"! The box in the middle shows what figures are up for grabs and the rarity of each one. The rarer one is the set are often referred to as "Chase Figures"!

In Wisconsin, No One Can Hear You Scream: Ed Gein, and the Horrors of Rural America



Arrested in 1958, Ed Gein fast became the poster boy for depravity and sexual deviation. The ultimate mother's boy gone wrong, Gein's farmhouse of horrors introduced his small Wisconsin hometown and the country to the sinister world of a man society had written off as a loner, a quiet man, and a devoted son. 

Littering Gein's farmhouse were the remains of a myriad of body parts from the corpses whose graves Gein had robbed. Skulls become bowls for soup, human skin became macabre lampshades and upholstery, and pieces of intact hides were used by Gein to play dress-up. The centerpiece of Gein's den of ghoulishness was the decapitated body of one of his two murder victims strung up, and dressed out in the same manner of a deer.

A look at my "Gremlins" collection . . .

Since I started going regularly to Horror Cons over the past 5 years there been a few movies that I always look for merch to bring home for each Convention I attend. As most of you are already aware I'm a huge Creature from the Black Lagoon/Gill-man fan (if not see my Creature Corner!)
With the popularity of the Universal Monsters higher then ever there's always a good chance I'll find something Creature related in my travels to add my Corner! Another franchise I been building somewhat of a collection up over the years is stuff from "Gremlins" and "Gremlins 2: The New Batch"! Below are something I've owned since childhood and also so new items that have popped up over the years!!!

A few years ago at a Monster Mania con in Maryland I was fortunate enough to meet Zach Galligan aka Billy Peltzer"! Zach was one of the nicest guest I have met at a Horror Con to date and was fun to talk to about both the Gremlins movies and the very underrated "Wazwork"! 

I did have the "Pop Movies" Gizmo at the time so I had him sign the Stripe figure I did have . . .



Last fall at the Chiller Theater con in N.J., my friend Tiff and I ran into Zach during the free concert at the end of the night, we started talking to him and he ended up hanging and drinking with us the rest of the show! 

Below are some of my favorite items in my Gremlins collection, they are the PVC toys that were released for both movies!

My first trip to Philly's "Bizarre Bazaar"!


Outside the Bizarre Bazaar!
720 South 5th Street (Philly, Pa)
 (Check them out on FacebookInstagram)

Today during my lunch break I headed down to South Street to check out a place I been wanting to check out the "Bizarre Bazaar" for the first time! The best way to describe this place is it's part vintage toy store and part Captain Spaulding's "Museum of Monsters & Madmen"!
Below are some pictures of Awesome Shit I spotted in the store that the owner "Prof. Ouch" was nice enough to let me take . . .


You know you entered an amazing place when they got a La Parka "LWO" sticker on their door!

The quality of this book is amazing and features so many cool pics from the movie!
