Ebay Find Of The Week: ‘A Nightmare On Elm Street 3’ Freddy Marionette

One of my favorite sequels to the original A Nightmare On Elm Street is easily A Nightmare On Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors.  And one of my favorite scenes from that sequel is when Freddy turns Phillip into a human marionette.  But before Freddy does that, he himself is a little marionette before he turns into actual Freddy.  And guess what? Someone has created a replica of ‘Marionette Freddy’ and is selling him on eBay!

Now, if you go to the eBay listing HERE, you can see more pics.  Unfortunately, not much more info is given (other than the buyer uses bad punctuation), so you’re buying a bit blindly here unless you want to contact the seller.  From the pics though, this looks like a top notch replicate of the marionette in the movie.  The price is a bit steep at $390, but given the detail and time it most likely took to make this – it might be worth it.  If I were to buy this, I would be slightly worried that it would come alive in the middle of the night and I would wind up on top of the roof at my building falling to my untimely slumber death……..

Ebay Find Of The Week: ’30 Days Of Night’ Promotional Beanie

Well, it’s the summertime and as the late Glenn Frey would say…..the heat is on!  There are a lot of ways to beat the heat:  a dip in the pool, rubbing ice cubes all over your body, eating some delicious ice cream, and buying a promotional 30 Days Of Night beanie.

s-l1600

Yeah – probably not going to really keep you cool, but you will be really stylish while you’re dripping buckets of sweat from wearing a beanie in 100 degree weather.  Although uneven, I actually enjoyed 2007’s vampire flick 30 Days Of Night.  So much so, that I almost clicked ‘Buy It Now‘ on the eBay listing for this promotional beanie.

If you are a bigger 30 Days Of Night fan than me, then head on over to the listing HERE and check it out.  The asking price of $8 isn’t too shabby for what it is.  I’ve spent money on a lot worse off of eBay before.  And to get you in the mood, watch one of my favorite scenes from the movie below and feel free to shout out your best vampire screech while you’re at it:

Ebay Find Of The Week: Prism Vending Machine ‘Toxic Avenger’ Sticker

From time to time, I like to post up ridiculously priced horror-related items that I find on eBay.  This is one of those times.  But who knows – maybe you won’t find the price all that ridiculous, and maybe you’ll even click the ‘Buy It Now‘ button on the listing after you read this?  Especially if you’ve been looking for an 80’s Prism vending machine Toxic Avenger sticker!

s-l500-1

Oh that shiny metallic border is pretty sharp.  Now, I do remember the old school Prism sticker vending machines where you would slide a quarter in and get a surprise sticker from a particular entertainment genre.  Unfortunately, I don’t really remember the horror ones, but you can take a stroll down memory lane HERE and check out what they had to offer.

Now let’s get back to business with this Toxic Avenger sticker that’s up on eBay. Guesses on the price?  $20?  $75?  $100?  Nope, nope, and nope.  Try $200!  Yes, this sticker is up for sale HERE on eBay for $200.  Let that sink in and feel free to watch it and see if someone actually pays that amount.  FYI – you can actually find some of the other Prism horror movie offerings on eBay for a much more reasonable price.

Ebay Find Of The Week: Promotional Rat From ‘Willard’ (2003)

Well, there’s a first time for everything – and today’s first time is me writing about the killer rat movie Willard, a remake from 2003 of the 1971 original.  And if you ever wondered if there were any promotional rubber rats that were given out to help promote the remake, feast your eyes on this:

s-l1600-2

Boom!  No, that rubber rat is not playing dead – it’s just flipped over, thanks to the seller on eBay, to let you know that it’s legit.  Gotta love that the website associated with Willard was ‘www.tearhimup.com‘ btw.  Sadly it doesn’t exist anymore.  But yes, this gem of a find is up on eBay right now if you go HERE.  It’s a modest $31 right now, but you can make an offer if you wish.  And rubber rats are always fun to try and play tricks on people that you don’t like.  Sadly, Crispin Glover (the star of the movie) does not come with this promotional product.  But if you would like your Crispin Glover fix, then please watch the clip below and feel free to emulate his funky dance moves……..

Ebay Find Of The Week: ‘Bad Dreams’ Promotional T-Shirt (1988)

Oooooooh…..I love promotional T-shirts from horror movies!  Especially ones that shouldn’t even really exist.  Like this one!

s-l1600

Damn right.  That’s a promotional T-shirt from the 1988 movie Bad Dreams.  Some would say it was a Nightmare On Elm Street knock-off, while others would say it’s an underrated 80’s gem.  And others might also say that actor Richard Lynch was one of the creepiest looking human beings ever put on this Earth.  Point is that you probably won’t ever see a Bad Dreams promotional T-shirt up for sale ever again.  So if you’re an 80’s horror enthusiast, or maybe someone who just likes collecting random shit – head on over to the eBay link HERE and grab this while you can.  It looks to be in good condition, which is always good for used piece of clothing.

Ebay Find Of The Week: ‘Mountaintop Motel Massacre’ Promotional Poster!

So you’ve just moved into your new place.  You’re looking for that special something to spruce it up and really make a statement for when you have people over for entertaining. Maybe a nice fern plant?  A beautiful shag rug perhaps?  Well, those are both great options, but if you really want to grab the attention of your visitors, why not go bold and add this to your living area:

s-l1600

Oh yeah!  It’s perfect!  Granted, your guests might immediately walk away from your new home or possibly curse at you, but I bet you’ll be the only one on the block with a Mountaintop Motel Massacre poster hanging on their wall.  Yes, this 1986 terrible but entertaining slasher movie has it’s own unique charm – and also a pretty amazing poster to boot.  And if you’ve got about $70 to spare, you can hit up eBay right HERE and grab it while it’s hot.  You might want to wait for the price to drop a bit, but I guess you really can’t put a price on something this special anyway, right?  That Evelyn is a real looker btw.

Ebay Find Of The Week: Promotional Buttons From ‘Sleepwalkers’ (1992)

Who doesn’t love promotional buttons?!?!?  Ok – I’m sure a lot of you don’t really love promotional buttons.  But let’s just say for the sake of this post that you do.  Well then, I found something amazing, but completely unnecessary on eBay today just for you!

s-l1600You might think those just look like some normal promotional buttons from the 1992 horror movie Sleepwalkers…….and you would actually be right.  Nothing too crazy going on here, but they do all have their own sense of flair. Sleepwalkers for all purposes is not a great movie.  But it is enjoyable in a ‘crappy horror movie’ kind of way, and these buttons just add to the flavor of that crappiness.

It seems from two of the buttons that they were really trying to hype up Clovis The Cat too.  These would make great random stocking stuffers for someone this holiday season, so if you’d like to get in on the action you can go HERE to place a bid.  And after you do, you can come back and watch the one and only scene from a horror movie where someone gets killed by a corn cob.

Ebay Find Of The Week: ‘House II: The Second Story’ Keychain!

Good thing I’m in the market for a new overpriced 80’s horror movie keychain! Upon searching for keychains on Ebay for some reason, I stumbled upon something so rare…..so special…..so unnecessary…..that I just had to share the good news with you.  Brace yourselves as you gaze upon this promotional keychain from the 1987 horror/comedy, House II: The Second Story!

s-l1600-1

Oh it’s beautiful, and I’m actually having trouble finding the words to describe such a remarkable specimen.  And it’s even better if you like the color yellow! Now for those who don’t know, House II: The Second Story was a sequel to the entertaining first movie in 1986 called House.  Personally, I didn’t really like the sequel, but I’m sure there are fans out there who will clamor towards this keychain.  But (and it’s a big but), it’s going for $25 on Ebay right now.  There is the option to ‘Make An Offer’, so you have that going for you.  Head on over to the listing HERE and take a look.  I’ll stand back cautiously while the stampede settles down to claim this one……

Ebay Find Of The Week: Hello Kitty ‘Chucky’ Vinyl Figure

Dang.  I didn’t get a chance to go to Universal Studios in Japan this year. Not that I was really planning on it, but after seeing this little horror nugget that they’re selling exclusively over there, it felt like the right thing to say.  Feast your eyes on the Hello Kitty/Chucky hybrid vinyl figure!

s-l500

How adorable!  Fun for all ages I’m sure.  I do have to admit that I kind of want one, and I’m not too confident that Universal Studios in Hollywood is going to be getting them anytime soon.  So what does that mean?  You go to Ebay and pay 5 times the price of course!  Just know that this figure is pretty small, so try not to shell out too much dough for it.  To ship from Japan, I would say $40-60 total is a decent price.  You can get one for $54 right HERE that includes shipping.  Domo Ariagto!

Ebay Find Of The Week: ‘Dr. Giggles’ Comic Books (1992)

I was never much of a comic book reader when I was a kid.  But the comic books that I did have were horror related in some way, shape, or form.  And if you were or are a horror comic book collector then there’s really only one comic book that you need to own:  Dr. Giggles!!!!!!  I can see that my suggestion of what the number one horror comic book to own should be, so let me say it again and a little louder this time:  DR. GIGGLES!!!!!!!!!!!!

$_57

Truth be told, I honestly love the movie Dr. Giggles.  Yeah, it’s stupid and full of  terrible puns, but it’s enjoyable – especially if you’re stoned.  And apparently Dark Horse Comics released this two-part comic series featuring our favorite maniacal doctor during the same year the movie was released in 1992.  And as luck would have it, I stumbled upon someone selling both copies on Ebay for a very reasonable price!  Head on over to the link HERE and place your bid if you dare.  And feel free to click the link below to revisit all of Dr. Giggles’ best puns:
