I’ve written before about my passion for MADBALLS, that curiously 80s phenomenon, that awesome amalgamation of action figures and, um, balls. You know what they are. They’re balls, but with faces, personalities. Creepy gross adorable faces and personalities. They’re just like Funko figures, except spherical. I’ve got the full collection of the original run and am working on acquiring the latest wave. Now, on top of that, and as if I don’t have enough things to spend money on, there is a new series of Horror-movie themed Madballs! Jason, Freddy, Leatherface, the Predator, the Alien, and the Alien facehugger. MUST. HAVE. THEM.
These new Madballs are available exclusively at Best Buy. Wait, what? Best Buy? Really? I USED to shop at Best Buy; I’ve purchased many a DVD at Best Buy. But I haven’t been in there since they greatly redacted their offerings of Horror and Sci-Fi flicks. Do they even carry DVDs anymore? Guess now I’ll have to go back, which means, I reckon, that it was a smart move on the part of Best Buy. Or you could buy your Horror Madballs on eBay, but you’ll have to pay double price. Easier to just drive to Best Buy.
