The official BLOWFLY "Weird Wobbler" will be the first figure to sell out. There are just over 100 left. These figures are designed to be collector's items and will never be available again, so don't miss out if you are a fan.
Speaking of big time BLOWFLY fans, here's Snoop Dogg getting his very own BLOWFLY "Weird Wobbler"!
I was recently asked to prepare a video to be shown before a screening of Lucio Fulci's classic, THE BEYOND, so I decided to do a small tribute to not only Fulci, but to many of the people who have worked with him.
There is a lot of incredible things in the works from the creators of the BLACK DEVIL DOLL!! At this moment the creators are gathering funds for the next project; a 6 part BLACK DEVIL DOLL 'TV sitcom' (called THERE GOES DA NEIGHBA'HOOD) like you have never seen before. I've already had the pleasure of seeing some of the material from this upcoming project and I can tell you without doubt it will be amazing and beyond anything they have done before!! 3 hours of absurdity and obnoxiousness as only you could get from the BLACK DEVIL DOLL! When the idea for this was shared with me a few months back I immediately knew that this was going to be something insane!
Here's a message from the BLACK DEVIL DOLL himself about the upcoming project!!!
And as he works on his upcoming project, the BLACK DEVIL DOLL goes to the world famous BUNNY RANCH!
So don't be a chump, support this cool project and get your very own BLACK DEVIL DOLL "Weird Wobbler" bobblehead before they are sold out forever!
Finally, at the beginning of the year, the United States Postal Service once again raised the shipping rates. Cult Collectibles did not raise domestic shipping charges for orders but had no choice but to adjust shipping charges for orders outside of the United States. There have been a few complaints from some of you in regards to this but it's a matter out of our hands. In reality our shipping charges do not cover the cost of packaging and shipping on most of your orders as it is and we have continuously done what we can to help compensate for shipping by giving you a discounted price on our figures.
More news coming soon and a very special video tribute to one of the greatest horror films of all time, starring the entire 'cast' of "Weird Wobbler" figures!!!

CHILLER THEATRE!!! Cult Collectibles is gearing up again to visit the Chiller Theatre convention in New Jersey on October 26-28! It's always an awesome and fun time and highly anticipated!!!
I am currently brainstorming how to make the official JEAN ROLLIN "Weird Wobbler" bobblehead a reality. Although it will be a super limited edition of only 250 pieces, it will cost more per unit to produce than any figure previous due to the lower production numbers. I also need to be sure there is enough fan support for it to happen. It's very likely I will have a kickstarter campaign to see how many people will preorder it and If I can't reach the necessary level of interest, it will likely have to be cancelled.
It was hinted at in the past, but here is a shot of the DEMON DOLL as seen in the film ROCK OF AGES!. Cult Collectibles invades Hollywood!

OCTOBER 5, 2011 - Holy crap!!! It's been busy here!!! First and foremost... LUCIO FULCI FANS REJOICE!! Pre-orders for the official Lucio Fulci - CAT IN THE BRAIN "Weird Wobbler" bobblehead figure are available! The figure ships early December, just in time for you to get a couple extras for your favorite gore loving friends as Christmas gifts! There's also some special "upgrades" you can order along with it at a discount price!
Here's the official press release:
Cult Collectibles in association with Box Office Spectaculars is proud to announce the release of the Lucio Fulci – CAT IN THE BRAIN "Weird Wobbler" bobblehead figure. Based on Lucio Fulci’s portrayal of himself in his 1990 film CAT IN THE BRAIN, this is the world’s first fully authorized figure of any type of the beloved Italian director.
The film features Fulci as a horror film director who believes he is losing touch with reality. Fulci fills the movie with his wicked sense of humor and literally assaults our senses with a seemingly endless barrage of violence, gore and sex!
Having previously released the incredible “Weird Wobbler” bobblehead figure for Fulci’s THE BEYOND (the world’s first bobblehead figure with an alternate detachable face), Cult Collectibles jumped at the opportunity to produce a figure of the director.
Owner Mark Jason Murray comments, “Fulci’s films were a major discovery for me in my pre-teen years during the wonderful era of ‘mom and pop’ video stores! Decades later I am still as much of a fan as ever and really wanted to pay tribute to Lucio himself. He was a master film maker even in genres outside of horror. For many of us, his horror films are the classics of our generation. I wanted to produce a figure for the true fans in honor of him.”
The figure shows Fulci wearing a flannel hat and jacket as shown in the film. “Fans kept coming up to me at conventions telling me to have Fulci in his ‘hunting outfit’… which was always the plan from the start, so I knew right away I was on the right track,” states Murray. “I also wanted to give it a little more personality, so I have Lucio holding a pipe in one hand since he was an avid pipe smoker.”
The film CAT IN THE BRAIN features the acclaimed Italian horror maestro Lucio Fulci (director of such genre classics as ZOMBIE, HOUSE BY THE CEMETERY, THE BEYOND, CITY OF THE LIVING DEAD, etc.), starring in this blood-soaked epic as a director being driven insane by his own movies. Fulci is thrust into an ultra-violent nightmare of death and depravity where murder and madness consume his sanity in a vortex of violence! The film is currently available in a deluxe two DVD set from Grindhouse Releasing / Box Office Spectaculars.
Cult Collectibles has quickly become known for its attention to detail, incredible packaging and high quality products. This figure is of no exception and one that no true fan of horror should be without!
Lucio Fulci – CAT IN THE BRAIN “Weird Wobbler” bobblehead figure details:
-Pre-orders available now with figure shipping early December 2011
-Limited edition of 1,000 individually numbered figures
-7 inches of lightweight polyresin
-Meticulously hand sculpted and hand painted likeness
-Incredible full color gore soaked packaging designed by Stephen Romano
- Collectible trading card included only with pre-orders from www.cultcollectibles.com
(Due to licensing restrictions outside of our control, this figure is only available to purchase in North America. Fans outside of North America, please understand that this is a legal matter which Cult Collectibles must abide by.)
FULCI FANS! PLEASE SUPPORT AND TELL YOUR FRIENDS!!! Show Lucio the love he deserves!
Speaking of Lucio Fulci! Be sure and see his classic gorefest, ZOMBIE in theaters across the US! Check here for theaters and dates throughout October and November! Don't forget about the Blu-Ray release and 2 DVD set coming from Blue Underground on 10/25!!!

Also, don't forget that all pre-orders will include a exclusive THE BEYOND trading card, only available during the pre-order period direct from Cult Collectibles!
Here's the full press release:
Cult Collectibles in association with Grindhouse Releasing is proud to announce the upcoming release of THE BEYOND "Weird Wobbler" bobblehead figure. From the classic 1981 film by legendary Italian director Lucio Fulci comes the world’s first bobblehead figure to include a separate detachable face.
"The films of Lucio Fulci are incredibly important to me, THE BEYOND especially, so I wanted to make absolutely sure that this figure was like nothing ever created before,” says Cult Collectibles owner, Mark Jason Murray. Taking the character of the young girl “Jill”, played by Maria Pia Marsala, and putting it into figure form was no easy task. “I got the idea right away that it would be incredible if the figure could have two faces, one in her ‘possessed’ state and another destroyed by gunshot, to duplicate one of the most shocking moments in the film.”
The creative process of this figure took over 9 months as extreme attention to detail and functionality were needed. “Although it was necessary to evolve from the initial concept due to limitations of the polyresin material these figures are made of, I believe the final version turned out even better than I had originally planned,” states Murray who collaborated closely during each stage of creation with Grindhouse Releasing co-founder, Bob Murawski.
“I had a great time working with Mark on this,” comments Murawski. “He definitely shares the Grindhouse Releasing philosophy of obsessing over every detail and taking as much time as necessary to assure that every one of those details, no matter how tiny, is perfect. Mark worked tirelessly with his international team to create something that has surpassed all expectations on every level. As a rabid Fulci fan myself, I am excited to have a cool new BEYOND item on the market and I'm proud to be associated with the sickest bobblehead ever made!”
Cult Collectibles prides itself in delivering unique and high quality products. “I did some research and couldn’t find anything like this having been done before with a bobblehead. The detachable face rests nicely on the figure’s base by its feet for easy storage and display and is held onto the head by magnets embedded into both the detachable face and solid head. When attached, it fits almost seamlessly. So much so that you may not even realize that it is removable having not known it already,” boasts Murray who incorporated further references to the film by having the figure stand in a “blood flood”.
“I just kept coming up with ideas for this and thought it would be great if the packaging referenced the book of “Eibon” from the film,” comments Murray, “so the front of the box has a flap that looks like the cover of a very old and evil book.” As with previous figures released by Cult Collectibles, noted artist Stephen Romano was hired to provide the elaborate packaging artwork. “Bob got the idea to include the film’s Italian language title on the base, so “L’ALDILA’” was added to the back of the base with “THE BEYOND” on the front. I am incredibly proud of how amazingly awesome this figure is!”
The figure is currently available for pre-order with an expected ship date in early June, 2011.
Lucio Fulci’s THE BEYOND “Weird Wobbler” bobblehead figure details:
-Limited edition of 1,000 individually numbered figures
-7 inches of lightweight polyresin
-Alternate detachable “possessed” face
-Deluxe “Book of Eibon” packaging designed by Stephen Romano
-Exclusive trading card available only during pre-order period from www.cultcollectibles.com
-Pre-orders available now with figure expected to ship early June, 2011.
(Due to licensing restrictions outside of our control, this figure is only available to purchase in North America. Fans outside of North America, please understand that this is a legal matter which Cult Collectibles must abide by.)
