The release of the remake of the horror classic “Carrie” has been rescheduled from March 15 (appropriate, since I think is about the time proms start up) to the October 18 (also appropriate, since Halloween will be just around the corner). Because of the release, NECA has created a two-pack of new Carrie figurines for horror fans to add to their collection. Both figures are 6.5 inches tall; the first one is “normal” Carrie.

Did you enjoy feeling part of the action courtesy of the 3D in Transformers: Dark of the Moon? Wait until you get the chance to ride Transformers: The Ride at Universal Studios Hollywood. The ride celebrated its grand opening just the other day and Shockya had the opportunity to get all of the details from ride representative Trana Pittam. Oddly enough, Universal Studios was actually a chicken farm back in 1912 when Carl Laemmle first started making movies there. When the public interest in movies being made became undeniable, the Universal Studios Tour was born and, even to this day, it’s the park’s tentpole attraction. The park now has over  [ Read More ]

Dark Knight Rises Toy Batman 1

Lately, there’s been a lot of spoiler-searching when a new product image from “The Dark Knight Rises” comes out, but I don’t think there are any spoilers in these new toy products, unless Batman will actually wear a white Batsuit. According to Comics Alliance, several new toy images have come out featuring Batman and Bane. The action figures are from 4″ Quik-Tec figurine line, which are aimed at children. You will probably be able to tell that when you see Batman wearing a white Batsuit and jet pack and Bane with huge mechanical arms to enhance his already juggernaut-like power. The figurines also come with some kind of unique structure  [ Read More ]
