Traumatize Kids from an Early Age with This Freddy Krueger Jack-in-the-Box

The most reviled toy in the entire toy box at daycare way back in the day was the Jack-in-the-Box. It played creepy music, and you never knew when that clown bastard would pop out. If you have kids and want to scare the crap out of them in a way that a standard Jack-in-the-Box can’t, this is the toy for you.

This is Mezco Toyz’ Nightmare on Elm Street Freddy Krueger Burst Box. The metal box has images of that knife-fingered nut Freddy on the outside. Spin the green handle and ol’ Fred will pop out with that snazzy red and green sweater, hat, and mincemeat face.

You can pre-order one now for $42.99 at Entertainment Earth with shipping starting in November 2019.

Funko POP! Office Space Action Figures Need You to Come in Saturday

Office Space was a fantastic flick. I particularly loved the scene where they beat the stuffing out of the hated laser printer that always says PC LOAD LETTER. Now, Funko has immortalized the main characters of Mike Judge’s classic comedy with their own POP! vinyl figures.

The Bill Lumbergh figure will ask you to work the weekend and wants his TPS reports right now. The Milton Waddams action figure wants his red stapler back, or he will burn the place down.

The Peter Gibbons action figure hasn’t really been missing work. All three figures are available from ThinkGeek for $12.99 each.
