When George A. Romero released Night of the Living Dead in 1968, he had no idea he would essentially be creating an entire genre centered out the dead rising from their graves. The film laid the groundwork for the rules of world where the dead rise. A bite is fatal, and causes the victim to become one of the living dead. The only way to stop them is to destroy the brain or burn the body until there is nothing left. Those rules have endured for decades. Though some stories will subvert those expectations, it only works because of the iconic film. And while Night of the Living Dead is considered by many to be the birth of the genre, it’s Romero’s follow up film that cemented his legacy as the “King of the Zombies”.
“When there’s no more room in HELL the dead will walk the EARTH”
Dawn of the Dead made it’s debut in Italy in September 1978, and opened in the U.S. in February 1979. It continues the story of a world unraveling as the dead rise and feast on the living. Two police offers, Roger and Peter, along with helicopter pilot Stephen and news producer Francine escape Philadelphia via a news copter. Looking for safe haven, they happen upon a massive new shopping mall in Monroeville, PA. Romero’s film ties in social commentary, personal drama, dark humor, and stomach churning gore to craft one of the greatest zombie film of all time.

Storm Collectibles shared a photo on their Instagram Page, showcasing the in-progress clay sculpt based on Master Daniel Pesina. Longtime Mortal Kombat fans will remember his as the face of Johnny Cage from the original Mortal Kombat and Mortal Kombat 2! Master Pesina not only did the digitized performance for Johnny Cage, but also was the actor behind Scorpion, Sub-Zero, Reptile, Smoke, and Noob Saibot in Mortal Kombat 1 and 2.
According to a post by Master Pesina on his Facebook Page, this sculpt will indeed represent Johnny Cage from the original game. The sculpt is still in the very early stages, and it may be a while before we see the final product. For now, click the banner image to check out the full photo.
There are enemies coming from far away. I need warriors. I’m building an alliance…. Justice League has come and gone, with Aquaman resetting the DCEU showing it has some promise for all us DC fans out there. One thing that was great about JL though – Tactical Suit Batman. The design was a a great modern look for Batman in today’s world, layering up his classic duds with armor galore. Oh, and some spiffy goggles too. Mezco Toyz recently released their version of him and it does not disappoint. A stocky base frame with well done layered armor, a well done cape and tons of accessories puts this one at the top of those released so far. The face sculpts, even though only the lower halves through the mask, are very well done, they capture Ben Affleck’s features perfectly. I’m not usually a fan of the open mouth versions Mezco does, but this one is better than previous attempts. Bottom line, this is a winner, he’s getting front and center display space on my shelves. We’ve run him through the motions to show off his capabilities, read on to check them out courtesy of Entertainment Earth, he’s in stock and shipping now!
No Banner, only HULK. I am a big Hulk guy, so whenever MCU Hulkeses drop I try to pick them up. I’ve been eyeing Mezco’s One:12 Hulk since they first revealed it back in July of 2017. It was a way to get an upper tier version of the big guy on the shelf that at the time, hadn’t been done properly before. Fast forward a year and a half, things have changed out in the 1/12 scale universe. But, I kept my pre-orders in because it is still a sharp piece and I wanted to see how Mezco handled things. He comes packed with a helmeted and un-helmeted head sculpt, axe, hammer, 3 sets of hands and a display base with the Ragnarok logo on it. Soft goods are minimal, with sculpted forearm, hand and sandal parts mixed with faux leather and rubber fight gear on the chest arms and legs. We’ve run him through the motions, read on to check out some additional thoughts and over 50 HD images after the break courtesy of Entertainment Earth!
Mezco‘s horror themed One:12 Collective line gets a little extra groovy with the release of the Evil Dead 2 – Ash Williams One:12 Collective Figure.
