Will you pony up for My Little Pony Mystery Minis series 2?
by Scarecroodle

A second series of Funko's My Little Pony Mystery Minis is slated to release in August. As with the first series, the standard retail assortment consists mostly of black decos for the characters. However, as with series 1, Hot Topic will be carrying an exclusive version of the set which includes some additional show-accurate versions of the ponies.

Series 2 consists of ten figurines (rarity chart in gallery) with a basically equal chance of getting any of the figures. We weren't provided with a rarity chart for the Hot Topic version, but it's probably a safe assumption that the show-accurate colors will be rarer (ie, 1/24 instead of 1/12).

The addition of Park Starz to Disney's world of Vinylmation grabbed collectors' attention in a big way.

Tomopop Review: Funko's Game of Thrones Mystery Minis Rhaegal photo
Tomopop Review: Funko's Game of Thrones Mystery Minis Rhaegal
by Scarecroodle

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.

Full review after the jump.

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.

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.

Full review after the jump.
