As much as I love it, Dracula A.D. 1972 was effectively Hammer Films reaching desperation point, and whilst they carried on limping along for a few more years, by the mid-seventies they were pretty much screwed. As they continued throwing big money into Nessie, the never-to-be Loch Ness Monster movie, the Hollywood studios were chucking out big budget horror that was going mainstream. As a clear indication that they’d run out of ideas, they started running adverts to ask the fans what they wanted, and the answer was uber-saucy vampire super-heroine Vampirella!
Hammer quickly came up with an outline and did a deal on the character license, then turned to finding the necessary Hammer glamour to fill the role (and Vampirella’s tiny swimsuit)! Hammer stalwarts Caroline Munro and Valerie Leon decided the tiny swimsuit and various other nudie bits were way too saucy, and Hammer eventually went for Hollywood’s Barbara Leigh. (Although the pic I found below does appear to show Valerie Leo in costume)!
Despite going as far as adverts and a promotional tour involving her and Peter Cushing, the film never made it to release. There’s no definitive reason why, but it was most likely down to money, as it was also the final nail in Hammer’s coffin.
Anyway, I know most of you pervs are only here for these…
I love the old Topps cards from the original Star Wars movies. Not sure that these new ones are anything more than promotional images, but if they appear in the local newsagent with a stick of chewing gum inside, I’m all in!
Just four images so far – Rey Encounters Luke Skywalker, Kylo Ren’s TIE Silencer, Canto Bight Casino Patrons and The Canto Bight Police Collect Information. Here they be…
It’s been a while, so I’ll attempt to win some cheap, busty brownie points with this incredible Vampirella cosplay from Milligan Vick. I’m not that cheap though… support Victoria here:

And now your pics…
Disney is slowly breaking down my barriers.
Great mash-up, unfortunately I can’t credit the artist as I’ve no idea who did it. Please let me know if you do!
Another post-punk Marvel mash-up has been long overdue – since 2013, in fact, when Brazilian artist Butcher Billy did it last. This time he offers us Ian Curtis as Spiderman, Big Bob Smith as Nightcrawler, Siouxsie as Scarlet and The Moz as The Hulk. There’s also The Numanoid as a superhero I don’t recognise – I’m really not as hot on Marvel as I am post-punk!
Hopefully in 2017 the next lot will include Robed in Desire, who I’m told are also post-punk icons….
I believe this little beauty is called Starry Night at the Arcade. A talented artist by the name of Noah Gibbs came up with this wonderfully creative, retro gamer-friendly Vincent Van Gogh meets Pac-Man mash-up…
