Box Of Dread: The October Edition
Dr. Zaius   |  

Box of Dread Ad

Every month I patiently await my happy little Box of Dread from Dread Central. The boxes, which are filled with all sorts of horror regalia, come delivered monthly to your door. In the past few months, I received DVDs, toys, stickers, posters, buttons, etc. Not every box will contain the exact same things (some do), but will have similar themes.

This month happens to be October, which for horror fans means Christmas has come early and Halloween is here. It also means to return to television for arguably horror’s most popular show, AMC’s The Walking Dead.

Continue reading for more on this month’s Box of Dread, and to see some images and unboxing videos.

Female Lead Gamora Missing From ‘Guardians Of The Galaxy’ Team Merchandise
Empress Eve   |  

Guardians of the Galaxy Banner Image

In this installment of “Please Take My Money, Disney,” we take a look at Disney/Marvel’s newest film, Guardians Of The Galaxy, which is currently soaring at the box office and has jumped to the top of everyone’s list of favorite Marvel Cinematic Universe movies.

When people dig an action-packed, scifi superhero movie like this — one that has a cool, funny hero (Star-Lord); a badass, gorgeous leading lady (Gamora); a wise-cracking, gun-toting raccoon (Rocket); a sensitive muscle man (Drax the Destroyer); and a lovable tree creature (Groot) — as Star Wars creator George Lucas has always banked on, they’re gonna want some merchandise. So, bring out all the merch you got, and people will buy it (if Star Wars isn’t example enough, just ask Gene Simmons from KISS).

But, for some reason, once again, Disney is slighting its non-Princess female characters, as Friend of Doom Amy Radcliffe pointed out this week in her article “A Sad Lack of Gamora,” which notes that while Guardians merch and toys are easily found, one of its characters, Gamora, the female team member of the Guardians of the Galaxy, is not, prompting the creation of the hashtag #wheresgamora.

Game of Thrones Dragon Shadow Image

Today we have a quick look at a newly revealed installment in Dark Horse’s line of Game of Thrones figures. Take a look at Tywin Lannister as portrayed by Charles Dance, Hand of the King, father of Jaime, Cersei, and Tyrion, and all around stone cold mother.

The figure stands 8” on its base and is set to go on sale March 2015. There’s not a lot of articulation in the figure, but there sure is a ton of detail.

The figure prototype will be on display this weekend at San Diego Comic-Con at booth #2615. Check out a few pictures of the figure here below.

Tetsuya Nomura's Batman Header Image

As part of Square Enix’s DC Comics Variant Play Arts Kai line of re-imagined figures, Kingdom Hearts co-creator and director and Final Fantasy character designer Tetsuya Nomura has designed his own version of Batman.

Nomura’s vision of the Dark Knight is decidedly unique, so much so that it might come as a bit of a shock to some Batman purists. This is one in a series of new designs by Nomura, and you can see what his version of the legendary superhero looks like below.

Olympus Athens   |  

Box of Dread

DVDs, CDs, books, wine, beer, fruit…all can be had with a monthly subscription for an affordable fee. But how do you get your monthly horror fix? Box of Dread fulfills that need. Every month a box of creepy surprises arrives, containing an assortment of goodies, which could include DVDs, t-shirts, stickers, comics, toys, and more. And although there is a general theme each month, no two boxes are exactly alike.

According to their FAQs page, they aim to “deliver the horror convention experience in a box”. Pick from two plans. The first is $20 a month, including shipping, and you can cancel at any time. The second is $57 for three months, including shipping, and you can cancel at the end of each three. Both plans are automatic renewal.

Kickstarter Spotlight: Austin Toy Museum

I love toys, don’t you? And while Star Wars toys will always have a special place in my heart, it’s comic book toys that really have me making mad dashes to the store looking for special releases or rarities. I know you’ve probably got a favorite toy line or series that makes you feel like a kid again, right? Well, chances are that The Austin Toy Museum has at least a few pieces of memorabilia from your childhood in their stockpile.

The collection is already assembled and ready to be displayed…which brings us to the reason for this Kickstarter campaign. They need a little help finding the perfect place so the public can come and enjoy themselves while being surrounded by all this awesomeness. They aren’t just looking to toss these collectibles into cases and call it done; they are hellbent on creating some awesome dioramas and displays to really jumpstart your childhood nostalgia. Why should you help? Read on to find out more and watch their Kickstarter video!

Next LEGO Movie ‘Ninjago’ Gets A Release Date
The Movie God   |  

LEGO Ninjago

The LEGO Movie was a smash success, scoring $460.7 million worldwide on a $60 million budget, so it should come as no great shock that Warner Brothers wants to turn it into the next huge franchise. A direct sequel to the movie is already in the works for a planned 2017 release, and now comes word of a September 23, 2016 release date for a spinoff titled Ninjago.

The movie will be based on the Ninjago line of ninja-inspired LEGOs, and will be directed by Charlie Bean, who previously directed Tron: Uprising for Disney XD and will be making his feature debut here. Bryan Shukoff and Kevin Chesley wrote the screenplay.
