Vintage Horror Movie Comics by Vile Consumption

What happens when you blend old-school horror movies with retro comic book covers? You’ll have to ask Cory Holliday (aka Vile Consumption), because he already took care of it for us.

Custom Beverly Hills Cop Banana & Tailpipe Playset

Last week, I stole a toy banana from my 4-year-old’s play food (because I’m a monster). I packaged it up with a plastic tube I found to make a Beverly Hills Cop Banana and Tailpipe Set. (If you need an explanation, then this post isn’t for you.)

Custom Dig Dug Figure for Clutter Gallery’s “Inaction Figures 5” Show

I’ve wanted to make a custom Dig Dug action figure for a while, but I’ve been so caught up in other project that there’s never been enough time. Fortunately, Clutter Gallery asked me to contribute some pieces to their 5th Inaction Figures show, so this seemed like the perfect time to make one.

Embrace Death with These Action Figure Body Bags

Just in case your 5-POA figure is DOA.
As 2016 finishes up killing our favorite celebrities, I figured it was fitting to get on board the death train and create some tiny action figure body bags. Limited to just 10 (for this initial release, at least), each cloth bag has a functioning zipper and fits most 3-3/4" figures.

CLICK HERE to buy one from the Death by Toys store.

The Unappreciated Side Art of Vintage Lunchboxes

Most toy collectors have an appreciation for the full color, embossed artwork that graces the fronts of vintage metal lunchboxes. But very few of us (myself included until recently) take the time to turn them over and truly give them a full body-cavity inspection. After doing so with my entire vintage lunchbox collection, I came across tons of overlooked scenes painted on the sides, bottoms and tops that were worthy of a mention.

October Watch List: Every Halloween Movie in Reverse Chronological Order

Horror movies happen year-round for me, but I tend to really live it up every October. This year, my plan is to watch the entire Halloween franchise in reverse. I’ve seen every film already (multiple times for most), but it’ll be fun to watch them all at once on a variety of formats (Blu-Ray, DVD, VHS).

I’m Auctioning Off My Two 'Stranger Things' Custom Toys

I’ve decided to send these two Stranger Things custom toys into the Upside Down. Well, they’re actually being sent to eBay, but it’s sort of the same thing.

They’re listed as a set of two in an auction that ends Sunday night.
CLICK HERE TO SEE THE LISTING and don’t miss out on these, as I am unlikely to make more.
