Monster Bash re-make is out there on location and in the hands of some eager early-run collectors. The reviews have been spectacular and for two weeks running the CGC LE is sitting in poll position on Pinside's Top 400. I should have mine in maybe two weeks, joining the other CGC remakes (AFM LE and MM with shaker motor) in my collection. Certainly this is a very exciting time for collectors of the hobby.
Now with strong rumors circulating that Jersey Jack will be moving on WILLY WONKA (1971 film) soon (a divine proposition for sure!!) some of us are speculating what CGC will do next. Rick indicated last year in a press release that Cactus Canyon, Big Bang Bar and Theater of Blood were imminent (as well as MB which of course is now a reality) but others have since weighed in with their own versions of how things will play out at CGC's factory, suggesting that Tales of the Arabian Nights, The Addams Family, Cirqus Voltaire and even Whitewater and Creature are in play. I seriously doubt the last two are even being pondered remotely but for various reasons all the others make sense. And yes, even with 20K made TAF would still be a formidable product, in view of the worn condition of most out there.
Based on previous threads and CGC's seeming affection for CACTUS CANYON (which many thought would beat MB out of the gate this past year) I am predicting CCR will be coming next. Any opinions or predictions? I have set aside the poll option, preferring to see responses here in comment section. Thank you!
