Slayer vs Scream

Knockdown dragout time! ‘Celebrity Deathmatch’ WHOM?! Thunderdome ain’t got nothing on this fight of the century…

Yep, as I dip once more into the dangerously addictive world of Funko Pop! Vinyl figures, I end up with a bloody fight to the death on my hands.

In one corner, we have the homicidal maniac known as ‘Ghostface’, a killer of teens who enjoys scary movies and offing Drew Barrymore in the first 10 minutes. And his nemesis? Sunnydale’s saviour and everybody’s favourite blonde Slayer (Faith was pretty cool, no?), Buffy Summers and her trusty Mr Pointy.

Who will win? It’s gotta be the Buffster right? The girl power is strong in this one – plus payback’s a bitch and SMG already suffered at the hands of the scary masked serial slasher in ‘Scream 2’. Remember?

RIP Cici 'Scream 2'
Place yer bets! I feel like this could become a weekly thing – if only I had enough money for more cute but pointless figures, hmm?

Pop a Stake in Monday

Poor Monday, the bastard child of days of the week. It never asked to be hated, but it can’t help but inspire dread and despair in millions. If Saturday is the popular girl everyone wants to know, Monday is the geeky bullied kid in the corner who smells like cheese, quietly plotting to do a Steve Jobs and take over the world.

McGeek makes it his mission to pick you up this Monday, by putting a stake in the heart of its crappiness. Do you all remember that blonde chick called Buffy who killed dead things, swapped spit with brooding vamps and generally saved the world a lot? Well, thanks to the mad bad geniuses at Funko POP! Vinyl, the time has come to take Buff and her Scooby Gang home in fab figure form.

Forbidden Planet UK has them marked on its website as ‘expected 30th September’ with other sites showing later in October; regardless of date though, surely it’s a no-brainer for any Whedonite to put a pre-order in and start making room for their own Sunnydale shelf.

Who cares if the Gentlemen didn’t have red eyes? What of it that poor Xander has been blatantly ignored? This is one of the best things to happen in toyland for years, and I’m not too proud to admit that I’m going to buy all in the hope that they do a ‘Toy Story’ and come to life when I’m not looking, ready to re-enact my favourite episodes. Dear Santa…
