All you need to do is lightly scratch the surface of this 24-inch by 18-inch poster to reveal a character, the movie she was in, the year the film came out, and what the parental rating was. The poster features favorites such as Effie White from Dreamgirls (2006); Jules and Nic from The Kids Are All Right (2010); Aibileen Clark and Minny Jackson from The Help (2011); Dame Marjorie "Maude" Chardin from Harold and Maude (1971); and many more [PDF].

Kodak’s New Cameras Don't Just Take Photos—They Also Print Them

Snapping a photo and immediately sharing it on social media is definitely convenient, but there’s still something so satisfying about having the printed photo—like you’re actually holding the memory in your hands. Kodak’s new STEP cameras now offer the best of both worlds.

As its name implies, the Kodak STEP Instant Print Digital Camera, available for $70 on Amazon, lets you take a picture and print it out on that very same device. Not only do you get to skip the irksome process of uploading photos to your computer and printing them on your bulky, non-portable printer (or worse yet, having to wait for your local pharmacy to print them for you), but you never need to bother with ink cartridges or toner, either. The Kodak STEP comes with special 2-inch-by-3-inch printing paper inlaid with color crystals that bring your image to life. There’s also an adhesive layer on the back, so you can easily stick your photos to laptop covers, scrapbooks, or whatever else could use a little adornment.

There's a 10-second self-timer, so you don't have to ask strangers to take your group photos.Kodak

For those of you who want to give your photos some added flair, you might like the Kodak STEP Touch, available for $130 from Amazon. It’s similar to the regular Kodak STEP, but the LCD touch screen allows you to edit your photos before you print them; you can also shoot short videos and even share your content straight to social media.

If you want to print photos from your smartphone gallery, there's the Kodak STEP Instant Mobile Photo Printer. This portable $80 printer connects to any iOS or Android device with Bluetooth capabilities and can print whatever photos you send to it.

The Kodak STEP Instant Mobile Photo Printer connects to an app that allows you to add filters and other effects to your photos. Kodak

All three Kodak STEP devices come with some of that magical printer paper, but you can order additional refills, too—a 20-sheet set costs $8 on Amazon.

"Treehouse of Horror" has been a beloved Halloween tradition for Simpsons viewers for almost 30 years. Now, fans of the specials can get their hands on new Funko Pop! dolls modeled after spooky versions of their favorite characters, Bloody Disgusting reports.

Each figurine in the new collection is inspired by a classic "Treehouse of Horror" Simpsons short. You've got Homer depicted as both the Grim Reaper and a creepy jack-in-the-box, from "Treehouse of Horror XIV" and "Treehouse of Horror II," respectively. There's also a version of him with a donut for a head exclusively from Box Lunch. Bart is available as a skateboarding zombie and a spaceman with an alien Maggie bursting out of his chest. Other classic "Treehouse of Horror" characters, like Vampire Krusty, Devil Flanders, and Marge the Witch, are also included.

According to Comicbook, this is the second time Funko has reimagined The Simpsons "Treehouse of Horror" specials as Pop! dolls. Last year it came out with a set featuring the five main characters as different monsters. This year's "Treehouse of Horror" collection will be even bigger and feature side characters for the first time.

You can pre-order your favorite Simpsons "Treehouse of Horror" Funko Pop! today from Amazon for $11 each ahead of their release in October. Here are more rare Funko figures to add to your collection.
