Vintage-Style Custom Figures



Popsfartberger on eBay is doing wonderful things with old GI Joe figures, some cardboard, a printer and some blister packs. Here are just some of his inventory or horror and action movie icons for sale on eBay. One of my biggest complaints is that in the 80s and 90s there was absolutely no cool Friday the 13th merchandise. However, Freddy merchandise was everywhere and it made me jealous. These have that great vintage feel to them and would be great for any collection.

    Dude man I fully agree!! Yeah all the late '80s to '90s had were okay fullscreen quality LaserDiscs & some of those "Horror Squiter" type balls that are VERY hard to track down now.

    Indeed I never got into ANOES franchise as much seeing asa how after the first two films I really cannot watch those anymore. But I LOVE those first two top ones of Crazy Ralph & Sack-Head Jason (Steve Dash/Jerry Wallace type). VERY COOL! Was about to popin my Blu Ray of Part 2 as well, odly enough.

    Very awesome site I'll have to check out...
    :D

  4. To Jack:

    Yeah, except for some lousy things like the horror squirters & the Screamin' model kits, super sadly not uh was produed. :( It was ostly just new versions of the fils themselves on Laserdisc, VD, crappy VHS and BETA and the like, et. I always hated those awful LP Mode recorded Paramount VHS tapes of the mid '90s that we all bought at Suncoast and such. What awful quality.

    Fully agreed. Its all super silly and I just like the films and some old lobby cards & original posters. That is it.

    Fully agreed with you, Joel.

    I mean the other ay at a Wal*Mart, God hlep me I was buying pasta & marinar sauce and some black tube sox since it is the same department sotre kind, and I saw a Parts 1-through-IV stadard def DVD set. I'm not sure why that was put out in the Deluxe Edition fouu since we'll have the superior quality Blu Rys before Christmas tie or maybe even Halloween tie this year.

    I've always called Paramount Ca$hAmount over the last few years since they no NO les then total cunt-y corporate greed with the many standard definition re-releases. I could do a full George Carlin pointles style ranting on them. I just want the rest of the blu Rays with the special features ported over in HD, thank you tell'em. :D
