Ok ok....So I finally caved and picked up a couple of packs from Rotten Rentals. I been eyeballing this store for a little while now and thought it was about time I picked a few up. These guys have a really cool Video Of The Month service you can join to for a reasonable price. So for 3 months of the subscription service you only pay $15. This gets you One blind pack a month for all 3 months, You choice of a current pack from the store, Access to members only packs for $10, Extra trading cards in each pack, A Video of the month card so you can pick up free packs of trading cards at conventions and such, And you are entered into a year end drawing for all sorts of goodies. (They also have 6 and 12 month memberships available.)
I was kinda hesitant to join the monthly service for now so I opted to pick out a couple of my all time favorite boxes and pick them up. These run $6 on average and they are not blind so you can choose your titles. I think shipping was little more than I tend to like to pay for something like this but it's all good.
So I picked up 2 packs I just had to have...
Sleepaway Camp & Hellraiser of course...
This is the back of the gorgeous Clam Shell VHS case it was all packed in...
And the front of the case.
I got a Paranormal Activity 3 bumper sticker...Which reminds me...I really need to get off my ass and check out this film!
Vintage Ghostbusters II Trading cards...Kinda perfect considering sad recent events...RIP Harold Ramis
The Crow City Of Angels cards...Not my favorite in the franchise since nothing was better than the original but this movie was OK.
Really cool Zombie Tarot cards...this is the back of them....
And this is the front. I got the Hanged Man & The Hierophant.
2 packs of Toxic Avenger cards...And you know I love me some Troma!
A single Gremlins card
A creepy Blue clown Monster In My Pocket figure
And a big disgusting plastic roach. Dammit I live in Florida these stupid things are outside everywhere come summer :(
So yea...Pretty cool for sure. Then I opened the Sleepaway Camp box and had even more fun....
I have the box set of these on DVD and totally forgot how kitschy and fun the original case was. What's more perfect than a letter home during camp LOL.
So to start I got another Zombie Tarot...Thinking I may need to find the whole set. This one is the Page Of Cups.
And a white Clown Monster In My Pocket.
2 more packs of Toxic Crusaders. Seriously can you believe how twisted the person who made this into a cartoon had to have been
Blair Witch cards
These are my favorite cards for this pack...Beetlejuice...Beetlejuice....BEETLEJUICE!!
And the last set of cards from The Frighteners.
I also got a couple of weird but cool movie promo type items....
A Paranormal Activity The Marked Ones Tattoo...
A Chernobyl Diaries Electronic cleaner (IE Cell phone screen)
And this is what amused me the most...Such an appropriate yet amusing promo item....
Yep...it is EXACTLY what you are thinking....
BTW....Still amused that this happened to come out on my bday LOL.
So yea...Final thought....If I saw these guys at a con or something I would have to pick up a few boxes for sure but I dunno if I would specifically go to the site just for these. However they do sell action figures, Trading cards, and some really cool limited edition items as well. And I got these within days of ordering which is a huge plus.
