Well, apparently, Funko has brought it all back, and filled in the gaps.
These could have been out for years, and my dumb ass wouldn't have known it.
So, if you're someone who knew about all this, save the eye-rolling, and sneering, I cop to not being up to date, all right?
Anyhoo, here's the new ones.
Again, Drac, Frank, Wolfie, Mummy, Phantom, Creature, but NOW, Bride, Invisible Man, and invisible Invisible Man.
Hooray!! Hooray for complete collections!!
But here's how I found out about 'em.
I was up to Bullmoose to sell off some tapes, and I saw THESE babies!!
Also, I would have liked Hannibal, Tall Man, and Chucky, but I understand they can only get the rights they can get, and it's a miracle they got what they got.
A set of some boomer-age ones would be good too.
The Fly, The Blob, The Thing, etc.
Anyhoo, I've hemmed an hawed before about how my 80's guys are old enough now that they're as classic as the oldies were back then, they need to be allowed into the pantheon.
Well, I think shared figure lines is as official as it gets.
Short of an updated monster party movie with everyone there.
That'd be sweet.
Hey, make one with the other! Robot Chicken, get on that.
Anyhoo, that's the slashers, but they've also all got the sci-fi horror villains.
And, here's some leftovers.
Again, I sifted out the good-guys, and a lotta henchmen.
Go to Amazon, and search "Funko reaction figures", for everything they've got.
There's some seriously cool shit in there.
The franchise is back full force, with season 2 on the way!
What a glorious time to be alive!
I think the 2010's will be looked back on with as much warmth and reverence as the 80's.
Geek-kind is in good shape.
I really dug it. Don't quite know if I love it yet, still processing.
Well, I love it now.
I caught all the little details I couldn't process the first time, it really does get better with repeated viewings.
One of the things the haters say is that Luthor's motivations either aren't clear, or aren't explained at all.
A lie, or willful stupidity.
It's all right there in his discussions with Senator Finch, and with Superman on the helipad at the end.
You can be forgiven for missing it the first time, but I heard an asshole who's seen it three times say this shit.
Fuck you, you're stupid.
Try coming up out of your popcorn for air once in awhile.
Sorry, folks, opinions are one thing, but getting facts wrong pisses me off.
As for the slow pace I mumbled about last time, fuck that, I take it all back, everything has a pay off, you can't cut any of it.
Once you see it the first time, and know a little better how all the little pieces fit, it flows better when you know where it's all going.
It really is a film that demands repeat viewings, this isn't a one-and-done flick.
It's not a turn-your-brain-off-and-fart movie either, you've got to pay the fuck attention.
Solid 8.5 out of 10.
Can't wait for the 3 hour cut.
Bring it the fuck on.
