Welcome to the monster cluuub! (Part 3!)

Part 1
Part 2

From here....

Think I've always had a thing for the monsters....
Even had the action figures of 'em from the 80's..*Googles*...shit, here they are!! 

And from here...
Hey, why no Bride figure?

Well, guess what? :)
They deed eet! They fawking deed eet!!!

First, here's the original Universal figures.
(Open these graphics in a new tab for full size to study)

You got Dracula, Frankenstein, Wolfman, Mummy, Phantom, and Creature.

No Bride.

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!!

Freddy, Jason, Michael, Leatherface, Pinhead, Ghostface, and Sam.

They had The Crow too, but he's a good-guy.

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.
Just sayin.

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.

Alien, Predator, invisible Predator, T-800, T-800 skeleton, four T-1000s, three Gremlins, and a Gorn from Trek.

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.
Anyway, these.

Travis Bickle, Tony Montana, Tyler Durden, Lo-Pan, Jack and Sally from "Nightmare Before Christmas". Walt, Gus, and dead Gus from "Breaking Bad", and finally Frank, Riff-Raff, Magenta and Columbia from "Rocky Horror Picture Show".

All that happened.
Happy, happy, joy, joy!!
Felt the need to time capsule it for later.
I'll definitely reference this next Halloween.

The only movie I hadn't seen of all of those was "Trick R Treat", and I just saw it.

Loved it!
Total love letter to "Creepshow".

Give it a spin if you haven't.
