ThunderCats was a fixture of '80s television. Although the 1980s was host to a lot of quirky cartoons that mixed fantasy and science fiction (such as Visionaries: Knights of the Magical Light), ThunderCats has enjoyed an enduring cultural legacy thanks to its catty cast and catchy theme-song.
A reboot of the series has come and gone, but the original lives on through pop culture references and collectibles like Funko's Pop! ThunderCats vinyl figures. While it's always cool to see the Pop! take on average characters, there's something even more fun when it's an over-sized, muscular villain like Mumm-Ra being shrunken down. So how scaredorable is he? Details after the jump.
Game of Thrones has proven to be something of a phenomenon. Starting off as a popular book series that appealed more to a geeky fringe, the franchise found mainstream popularity as a show on HBO... although it hadn't really received a ton of merchandise until Funko (sometimes called The Walletslayer) stepped in with a line of Pop!s, 6-inch Legacy figures, and Mystery Minis.
Of these offerings, the Mystery Minis might be the most endearing. These stylized roughly 2.5-inch figures have a certain charm to them and the dragons might be the most charming of the bunch. Today we'll be taking a closer look at Rhaegal, Daenerys' green dragon, from series one.
It still amazes me that after being on TV for 10 years, Supernatural doesn’t have more toys. They certainly have a huge fan base! That’s why when Funko finally announced that they were making Pop! figures from the show, fans were very responsive.
So now thanks to Convention Exclusive, there will be variant Supernatural figures of Sam and Dean. Released as sets, there will be two variant versions; Blood Splatter and Metallic Blood Splatter. Convention Exclusive will debut their Supernatural figures at Chicago’s C2E2, but they will also be available on their website.
Starting on April 14, you can pre-order these Pop! figures for US$19.99 for the Blood Splatter version and US$34.95 for the Metallic Blood Splatter version. The Metallic Blood Splatter version will be limited to 500 pieces.
At NY Toy Fair, we got a look at all of Funko’s upcoming series. One of those series shown were prototype renderings of figures from Vocaloid. Now Funko has released official images of these figures with more informati...
Funko easily ranks among the top makers of blind-boxed collectibles, and it's easy to see why with exciting entries such as the Marvel Mystery Minis series. This time around Funko has released a regular version of the series (which can be found at all the usual retailers) as well as a Hot Topic exclusive version.
Today we'll be taking a closer look at one of the figures you might find in a box (if you're REALLY lucky, that is!), the ultra-rare Loki with staff.
Funko will be releasing two Amazon-exclusive Pop! Game of Throne bundles to celebrate the upcoming fourth season of the show and, to celebrate this as well, has decided to hold a Facebook giveaway that started yesterday and r...
Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy hits theaters on August 1st but you won't need to wait that long for Funko's new Pop!s and Wacky Wobblers based on the film's characters which are slated to release in June.

While we were sleeping like beauties, pre-orders opened up for Funko's upcoming Pop! Maleficent and Aurora from the upcoming Disney film Maleficent.
Although I'm still iffy on Disney's choice to cast Angelina Jolie as the tit...
Funko has a pretty simple formula for making their Pop! figures. They are able to take dozens of characters based on movie, TV, and video game characters, apply it to their formulaic toy design, and come out with cute figures. Alright, sometimes they don’t work out, but for the most part they do.
So now they’re taking their standard design and giving it to the fans. Funko will be releasing Do-it-yourself Pop! figures so you can make every character you’ve been wishing for. Finally I can have a Sailor Moon Pop!
These will be available in a male or female body type, and your first chance to get them will be at Emerald City Comicon. Also at their booth will be exclusive Emerald Green versions of these DIY figures. They will be limited to 300, and only 100 will be available each day.
So if you’ll be at Emerald City Comicon this weekend you can be the first one to get one of these at Funko’s booth #117. For the rest of us, we’ll have to wait until these DIY Pop! figures come out in May.
