New Horror Posters!

I really lucked out these past two weekends and came across some posters I've had on my wish list for years now! And I scored them at the incredibly low price of $5 each from a local bookstore in Kitchener.

Jay The Horror Section Clarke and I spent last Sunday driving from video store to book store to video store looking for bargains, VHS tapes, and other horror/cartoon paraphernalia. Never did I ever imagine picking up some of these gems!

And lastly, this weekend I managed to find a MEET THE FEEBLES poster for a VERY reasonable price in Toronto.

NY Toy Fair 2012

Another New York Toy Fair has come and gone and quite a few new surprises were unveiled this year.

Eighties cartoons are still going strong. Here's some of the toys that were featured...

Masters of the Universe Classics

For all the information you could ever imagine on the new figures, check out this great video by Pixel Dan from He-man.org.

Ghostbusters - Kind of horror related, kind of cartoon related. Figured I'd stick this in between

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

The Turtles are back with a vengeance. It's amazing how this series spans generation after generation and never tires. Looking forward to seeing what Nickelodeon does with the upcoming series. Here's the toys...

In the horror world, NECA unveiled some more figures from their upcoming lines...

Evil Dead II


Life-Size Gremlin Replica

 Friday the 13th - Very excited to see what NECA does with this line!

Robocop - Battle Damage - this is pretty lame, but I'm sure someone will buy it.

That's all that really sparked my interest. For more pictures and other new toy lines, be sure to visit any of the following websites:

Thursday Cartoon Intro - CARE BEARS

Well, it was bound to happen...today's featured cartoon intro is the beloved Care Bears! The Care Bears were originally created by American Greetings (the card company) in 1981.  One hundred episodes were produced by Nelvana and DIC Entertainment and the show aired from 1985 to 1988. Care Bears went on to spawn a number of different shows, feature films, and toys lines. Any kid from the 80s should remember the intro... Care Bear Count Down! 5, 4, 3, 2, 1!

Thursday Cartoon Intro - TMNT (2003)

Eighties cartoon fans have been pretty lucky. We've seen some great cartoon remakes in the last 10 years from He-Man to GI Joe and now Thundercats. The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles series from 2003 is no exception. The re-imagined series is definitely one of the best cartoons of the last decade. Produced by 4Kids Entertainment and Mirage Studios (Peter Laird's company), the show takes the Turtles back to their comic roots for a new generation of fans. The show aired on Fox from 2003 until 2009 and saw the Turtles go through a number of different designs and storylines. I only managed to catch the first season and a couple of episodes from season 2, but what I saw was extremely entertaining. DVDs of the series are hard to come by now as they seem to be out-of-print. Season 2 (part 2) DVDs go for a pretty hefty price on Amazon. Nickelodeon recently acquired the rights to make a new animated series, which would be the third animated re-imagining of TMNT, and is slated to air sometime in 2012.
