NECA’s at it again. I think they’re trying to capture my heart, as well as the contents of my wallet, with their ever-growing line of neon pastel figures that merge horror movie icons with the style of old school Nintendo games. Their Jason Voorhees and Freddy Krueger figures are still very much at the top of my wish list, and it looks like I’ll soon need to make room for another.
South American EDM artist Zardonic has recorded a remix of horror-influenced electronic artist Figure‘s “Are You Afraid Of The Dark”, which features Lexi Norton. The remix appears on the recently released Monsters Selected Remixes album, which you can snag via Beatport. Head on down to give the track a listen and to see the AWESOME cover art for the remix EP.
EDM musician Figure is a huge Chucky fan and has found the perfect way to show it: by releasing a free download of a new track that uses samples from the films! Below you can stream and download his “Child’s Play (Original Mix)”.
Figure states, “The original Child’s Play films were some of my favorites growing up. With the new Curse of Chucky movie coming out directed by the original directer Don Mancini and Chucky being voice by Brad Dourif again .. I quickly decided to make a ode to the little fucker with a knife. Enjoy!”
I have a growing list of Silent Hill figures that I want badly, and it’s all thanks to Toymunkey Studios. It started with the gorgeous Pyramid Head figure, which now has a Comic-Con exclusive variant inspired by Silent Hill 2. That was quickly followed by a pair of super creepy bubble head nurses, also from SH2, and now, we have some Heather and Robbie the Rabbit figures from Silent Hill 3.
Every time I see one of these, my wallet aches. Read on for pictures.
I never got around to playing the NES game based on the Friday the 13th franchise, mostly because I was one year-old and that sort of game isn’t appropriate for anyone under three. Probably for the best, because I’ve since heard that it’s not all that fun to play. One year-old Adam wouldn’t have approved of those poorly conceived dodge mechanics, I can guarantee you that.
To me, the most controversial thing about it is Jason, who happens to be sporting a purple jumpsuit and neon blue mask. Jason can’t pull off those colors, he’s strictly a brown and grey sort of fellow. I fully support throwing in a muted green here and there to mix things up, but blue and purple? No sir. I’d say this guy is best left in the past, so as to keep that neon vomit away from the general public. It would seem the fine folks at NECA would disagree.
Just look at those boots. This reminds me of a line from the Nancy Sinatra classic, ‘These boots were made for stalking, stalking your ass through the foggy streets of Silent Hill’ …or something like that.
I’m not sure if they started off red or were slowly dyed crimson after each victim, but who cares? Toymunkey revealed a fancy new addition to Gecco’s gorgeous line of Silent Hill figures. No details yet regarding their U.S. release, but this lovely new Bubble Head Nurse will become available in Japan in July for a paltry ¥9,800 (about $100), so we can hope they’ll make it here sometime soon after. Get a better look at her after the break.
EDM artist Figure has announced a pretty massive European and N. American tour that kicks off this Friday and goes until the end of March. You can see the full touring schedule below.
Figure states, “I want this tour to be a showcase of my catalogue; a bit of the old, tracks that the fans come to hear, as well as surprise them with new, fresh material that i’ve been saving for a good part of 2012 to premiere on this run. This tour is about the music taking the spotlight.” READ MORE
Kotobukiya’s ARTFX Statue Line will soon include gaming’s resident Necromorph slaying badass Isaac Clarke, and he looks real good. The attention to detail in this figure is incredible, they even placed LEDs in the visor, RIG, and locator. Between this and the gorgeous Silent Hill figures Toymunkey Studios was at Comic-Con back in July I don’t think my wallet can keep up with my new-found love for terrifyingly awesome video game statues. The Isaac Clarke statue stands at just a little over 12 inches tall and comes with that bloodied display base you can see after the break.
Bloody-Disgusting is excited to bring you an exclusive first listen to “The Grave Yard”, which comes off of Figure‘s upcoming album Monsters Vol. 3. The album, which comes out tomorrow and will be available here, features 15 tracks of horror-inspired electronica.
Figure says about the track, “I knew I had to make a track based on where half [of] all evil things spawn up from, so up from the dirt comes “The Grave Yard”, an anthem for all things dead and rising. The synths during the builds are semi-reminiscent of classic zombie analog soundtrack riffs while the bass is screaming at the top of its lungs.”
You can listen to the track below! READ MORE
