A sad day for B-Movie and Mystery Science Theater 3000 fans. Bruce J. Mitchell, who played Zap Rowsdower in the movie The Final Sacrifice, has sadly passed away. He did an interview a while back and talked about his experience during the making of the movie. He seemed like a really nice guy who appreciated his opportunity to be in a movie and still be known for it to this day thanks to a new generation finding this gem on such shows as MST3K. His service will be held at the Third Zeox Church in Manitoba.
First off, we want to say Thank You to all the people that came by our booth to talk about MST3K and Linda’s Amigurumi. This year was our best con ever and we look forward to seeing and meeting even more people next year! OK, now on to the photos and memories: Linda debuted her MST3K Mad’s from the new Netflix season, as well as Ninja Turtles, Rick and Morty, and my favorite, Bitch Pudding! I also introduced some MST3K inspired t-shirts And of course, a big shout out to the MST3K fans that came by:

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.
What a great time! You look forward to it all year long and then when it gets here, it’s over so quickly! Thanks to everyone who stopped by and chatted, and especially those that bought Linda’s beautiful Amigurumi dolls. She sold out of several designs so if you place an order on her website or on etsy, please allow a couple extra days to catch up. I want to thank Joel and his wife for stopping by with his Tom Servo, and a special thanks to someone I’ve known online for a couple of years and ran into accidentally at … Continue reading
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
