Ebay Find Of The Week: ‘The Toxic Avenger’ Promotional Standee!

If you know anything about me, then you know that I love promotional standees for horror movies!  Actually, a lot of you probably don’t know that about me.  It’s kinda like a deep dark secret.  But anyway, once in a while I peruse eBay and see what pops up.  And quite possibly the ‘holy grail’ of promotional standees appeared during my recent search!


Holy mops and toxic waste!  Tell me you wouldn’t be the envy of all of your friends if you had that greeting them at the door when they came over.  And how cool is it that it has an actual mop head attached?  Now – you’re probably asking what something like this costs.  Well………it would run you at least $250 (which honestly isn’t terrible considering the rarity of it), but the seller has a ‘Make Best Offer’ option as well.  Head on over to the listing HERE and snatch it up if you’re feeling impulsive and extra toxic today!

Melvin From ‘The Toxic Avenger’ Needs Your Help!

I’ve mentioned before what a huge fan I am of Troma movies and in particular the granddaddy of them all:  The Toxic Avenger.  So if you’ve ever wondered what happened to the actor who played Melvin, our favorite little tutu wearing nerd who transformed into a hideous toxic crime fighter, you’re in luck!  Mark Torgl has teamed up with director Joe Nardelli to document in mockumentary form what his life is like now, 30 years after he was mopping the gym floors on the big B-movie screen.  And they’re calling it:  Toxic Tutu


The duo and crew are looking to raise some last minute cash to film the big Troma-influenced finale and only have about 11 days left to do so.  Taking their cause to Indigogo to help out the project is good news for you, because all donation amounts will get you a little something!  Everything from autographs to associate producer credits.  And no amount is too small at this point, so head over to the project page HERE and donate whatever you can and watch the teaser trailer while you’re at it!
