If you weren't able to pick one up at San Diego Comic Con, Alex Pardee has got you covered. Her's releasing “The Backpack” plush backpack today (Wednesday August 15th 2018) at 8PM ET over at his webshop. You can use it as a backpack or give them a plush hug (the straps are detachable). Why do I feel like this is the antithesis of Dora The Explorer's backpack? Look for them to run $50.00 each, with limited quantities available.

NECA is giving you the chance to terrorize your friends and enemies with your very own replica Possessed Ashy Slashy puppet from Season 2 of Ash vs. Evil Dead. You might remember that the company previously released the regular (non-possessed) version, but this one features the little puppet after he goes full-on demonic. This 15-inch tall working puppet replica features jagged teeth (you can move the mouth), creepy eyes, and a serrated chainsaw blade.
The puppet (along with the original version) is already available to purchase over at Amazon.com.
Join Forbidden Planet on Saturday August 11th 2018 as they celebrate their 40th year of existence (this sounded real old until I realized I also celebrated my 40th year of existence a few months back). In addition to the festivities, they will be launching a new varsity jacket, plus a massive range of new t-shirts and merchandise - including an homage to Rick and Morty.
The event runs from 11AM to 4PM. There will be faceprinting, a free copy of Forbidden Planet's Souvenir Magazine featuring four decades of great guests, and giveaways
RRParksCARDS has announced his (Richard Parks) latest series of collectible cards. There's currently a Kickstarter Project to fund the production of the official Sharknado Trading Card Series. In cooperation with The SYFY Channel and The Asylum, the project will only be funded if it reaches its goal by Friday, August 31st 2018 at 11PM ET (it's already surpassed that goal).
This is the first series and it features Sharknado and Sharknado 2 (series two will feature Sharknado 3 and Sharknado 4 and series three will feature Sharknado 5 and Sharknado 6). There are TWO base sets in this series - the first base set is a 90-card set of Sharknado and the second is a 90-card set of Sharknado 2. And there's a special "Bloody Subset" featuring gooey, nasty scenes of sharkish mayhem (with a special coating so the blood shimmers when cards are held at a light source). Also, there will be a 3D anaglyph 18 card subset, 4 Faux Film Cell cards, 4 different Genuine Movie-Used Costume Prop Relic Cards, 12 Full Metal Box Topper Cads produced by Faerie Metal, 9 Limited Edition Special Commission Portrait Cards with Puzzle Backs, Printing Plate Cards, Sketch Cards, and rare Progressive Proof cards.
There are various funding levels available, but the first one - where you get everything - is at the $160.00 level.
As I say with all Kickstarter projects I post about. Remember...this is not a pre-order. There are many instances of crowd funded projects that have been funded never making good on their promised goods. So back all Kickstarters with caution. (I've backed several RRParksCARDS Kickstarters and have received everything with little/no delays).
