First, a little bit of background. Way back when the Kickstarter campaign started and the thought of bringing back MST3K was first tossed about, some expressed concern that the new show was going to try and be an extension of the old tried and true format with characters that were going to be VERY hard to replace. When Joel announced the characters and the actors that were going to play them, the concern grew. It would be hard to continue with the existing line-up of Crow, Servo, Forrester, Frank, and the rest given the impact the original players left when … Continue reading
When it comes to Mystery Science Theater figures, there aren’t very many. You have to look to the fans that have created everything from Amigurumi dolls to headboards. Well, no longer… At least if there are enough votes cast for LEGO to create a Mystery Science Theater set that includes the bots, the hosts and protagonists, the famous hallway sequence, and the projection room. If you would like to see this idea come to fruition, go to the LEGO Ideas web page and cast your vote!
Netflix Releases Trailer For New Mystery Science Theater 3000 Netflix has released the trailer for the upcoming new episodes of Mystery Science Theater 3000. I’m a little hesitant to get excited. Let’s see what the reboot looks like before passing judgment. My biggest fear is that the reboot didn’t start off with a complete refresh of the characters. Review to come!
Over the long and distinguished career of Mystery Science Theater 3000, one of the running gags in the show was a reference to a woman named ‘Debbie’. The name was used generically on some riffed characters, but was also used explicitly when describing certain acts seen in a particular movie. The origins are described in the MST3K Episode Guide. According to Mary Jo Pehl: “Paul (Chaplin) occupies the cube adjacent to mine, and I find it’s in my best interest to eavesdrop on his on his endless personal phone calls(which are relentlessly peppered with phrases like ‘We got so high’ or … Continue reading
Recognize the title of this article? If you’re a child of the 80’s AND an MST3K fan, you’ll love this video. They take a classic riff from the MST3K episode “Hobgoblins” and put it to music.
This is the last weekend before Phoenix Comicon, which means scrambling around like idiots trying to get everything ready. At least two more prints are ready: An MST3K print package wouldn’t be complete without Pearl and the Gang. I don’t know that I will have time for a newer version of Dr. Forrester and TV’s Frank. The second print is of our all time favorite movie hero, Big McLargehuge… Otherwise known as Reb Brown in Space Mutiny. It includes all of the riffed names he is referred to by Mike and the Bots. See you June 2nd through the 5th … Continue reading
Well, at least some of the prints are ready for Phoenix Comicon 2016. There’s still a few more that I need to get finished for the show but for now, here’s a preview of the first 3: I decided to beef up my ‘skills’ and introduce some brighter, more vibrant colors, especially in the background. This past year I learned more about blending and filtering and was able to create more ‘realistic’ drawings. Adding some colorful, vibrant color matching backgrounds add to the overall image aesthetic. Be sure and visit us at Phoenix Comicon 2016! Check out all the new prints and … Continue reading
We’ve been saying it for years (about 15 to be exact). I’ve heard rumors of this for the last couple of months and now it’s finally come to fruition. Check out the official Bring Back MST3K Kickstarter campain! Be sure and use the hashtag #BringBackMST3K The minimum goal is $2M, but if more can be raised they will make additional episodes. There is still no word on the ‘cast’ or format but Joel has stated that the premise and presentation should remain pretty much in tune with the original. Personally, I hope they reach this goal outlined on the Kickstarter page: Finally, … Continue reading
Check out this headboard. It features a Mike era silhouette (I’m guessing but it’s hard to tell without the pointing). Now all you need is a movie poster for Time Chasers or Soultaker over it. http://nerdapproved.com/household/mst3k-headboard-critiques-your-performance/#pxbiccU7MjGwkShy.01
