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.

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.
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 definitely on the Stranger Things bandwagon these days. The show is an 80's nostalgia dream come true. I know I'm not the only one obsessed with the show, but I'm probably the only one who took a metal dollhouse bicycle and made a "custom toy" (I use that term very loosely) of Will's bike.
Honestly, it's beyond stupid, and I'm not even really sure why I'm posting it here. I guess I found it sort of funny, but I've been known to have a warped sense of humor. Either way, until the world gets actual Stranger Things action figures, you'll have to settle for my nonsense.
The first time I saw the custom VHS tapes made by "Afraid of the Basement," I only knew I had to have one. I didn't know who the mastermind behind AOTB is (and I really still don't), but I know he makes unreal VHS fan art.
Having grown up watching these exact Disney clamshell VHS tapes, the nostalgia factor alone makes me love these. In person, it looks and feels exactly like a vintage Disney VHS. It's really some next level fan art.
There's even a rewritten plot on the back of the movie in a whimsical Disney-esque style (see below). The entire thing is a never ending series of fine details.
Basically, you should stop reading my site and go see all of the custom VHS tapes made by Afraid of the Basement by clicking here. And be sure to check out the AOTB website for everything from videos and music to posters and prints.
