Say Hello To My Little Friend

/ 6 years ago

Did you think I could post this 12″ talking action figure WITHOUT dropping that line? If you do, you have better self control than Morgado. That’s right. Channeling my inner Morgado. He wouldn’t have missed a beat on that line. This one is produced by Sideshow Toy. They always do a stellar job with their figures. To top it off, it was autographed by Al Pacino “while walking to his car after a meeting with a friend in Century City, Ca on 03-31-10…” That just seems creepy. Either way, evergraphs got the autograph, which can now be yours. Have at it.

Screamin’ Freddy Kruger Model Kit, signed by Robert Englund

/ 7 years ago

Does anybody own a Screamin Model Kit? I own one and the only reason I was able to buy it was because the store selling it went out of business. When I was 16 I worked at a deli in the mall. There was a comic/collectible shop in the mall near the movie theater. I knew one of the guys that worked there and he would hook me up with his discount in return for free food. So I use to buy all my comics and other collectible stuff there, they happened to have a Screamin Werewolf model made from resin and 1/6 scale. The only problem was it was $49.99 and that was high for me back then. So I let it go, a few months later the owner announced that the store was closing and everything had to go. Long story short I got the model for $20.00, I later spent the night cutting, gluing,drying and painting the model. But it was worth it Screamin makes very well sculpted models that is why they were a bit pricey.toyshack is selling a Screamin Freddy Kruger 1/4 scale. The model has already been painted and assembled so that takes some of the fun out it. But the model has been autographed by the great Robert Englund so that does make it a bit more special.

Here are two pictures of my Werewolf from Screamin.

Secret Base Obake

/ 7 years ago

The term Obake has a few translations. It’s a Japanese word that is often loosely translated as ghost. This term is most prevalent in Hawaii (of all places). It’s mostly due to the large Japanese influence on the island. But in a more general sense, it translates as thing that changes shape with a very ephemeral supernatural feel. Whether it’s a dog, a ghost or some other supernatural shape shifting, this is considered Obake.

Lets see a few examples. This first item is a book from the Hawaiian folklorist Glen Grant. He is well known for documenting ghost sightings and other supernatural activities on the island. This particular item is an autographed copy. Hot.

This is a Secret Base figure. It’s a very literal translation of Obake. This one is an obvious ghost motif. Call me crazy, but these colors are hot. I would gladly put this dude on my desk. Very patriotic looking, if I do say.

Next up is the Secret Base Obake Dog. This is obviously not a ghost, but rather the other translation, “thing that changes shape” to something dog-like. This was a special Toy Tokyo SDCC release back in 2006. I love the colors on the dog head. Great look.

There you have it. If you have any other Obake stories or references, I’d love to hear them. (more…)
