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.

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.

Darkseid throws down against Superman in latest DCC solicits

Gargamel lucky bags are back at Super7 photo
Gargamel lucky bags are back at Super7
by Brian Szabelski

They're baaaaaaack: Gargamel lucky bags are returning to Super7 on Thursday! Like years past, these will be a random assortment of various Gargamel pieces, including unique colorways and maybe even a special piece or two. Of course, you'll have no idea what you get until you open your bag up, so it's a bit like a very expensive blind-boxed figure.

Price-wise, they're US$300 each and available starting at noon Pacific (3 p.m. Eastern, 8 p.m. GMT) from Super7. Anyone tried their luck at a lucky bag before, and if so, how'd it go for you?
