So during Horrorfest, there comes a time when my non-blogging life gets full and I just don’t have time to write a full film or TV episode review. There’s just not enough hours in the day. If only I had a time machine.
The first year I did a post where I dressed up the actors who played Austen Heroes in costumes.
To read go to A Halloween Hello from the Austen Men.
In Horrorfest II, a did a post on an artist who mixed classic horror films with Disney characters.
To read that, go to Disnified Horror.
In Horrorfest III I did a post on 100 of my favorite lines from horror films.
To read that, go to Part X: The Movie List That Would Not Die!
And this is this year’s post.
Now I know what you are thinking? So early in Horrorfest? Well, yes. You see I was going to review all the films in a series on the last four Thursdays in October, but I changed my mind. So while I’m tweaking Horrorfest IV, I leave you with this awesome, non-film/TV episode review post.
So I was in Barnes and Nobles, looking in their non-book film, board games, toys, etc. section when I spotted this:
I was sooooo excited! CLASSIC HORROR FILM ACTION FIGURES!!!!!!!!!!!!
I was so stoked that I spent like an hour combing through and looking at every doll they had, trying to make a complete set.
So we have the monster from Frankenstein,
And how could he be complete without his bride?
I kept searching for the Phantom or the Wolf Man but couldn’t seem to find them.
It seemed like a majority of their horror figures were Frankenstein’s monster and his bride. But then I finally found this:
And the King of the Horror flicks himself,
But still no Phantom or Wolf Man.
I was ready to call it quits. I mean I had been searching for them in a cloud of Frankenstein related monsters. A crowd was watching me thinking I was crazy as I exclaimed in delight over my action figures. I guess it wasn’t meant to be.
But then I spotted him:
No Wolf Man though. But how awesome are these?
I know super awesome! I just love them.
So I know, different from our usual posting, tomorrow we will be back on schedule. I promise. And just because it totally goes and I absolutely love this song, I’m going to end on this:
