Funko has released images for its Book of Life Pop! and Legacy figures. While the Pop! figures (which includes both versions of Manolo, Maria, Xibalba, and La Muerte) are cute, it's the Legacy figures which steal the show.
The father of Final Fantasy, Hironobu Sakaguchi, has announced his PAX Prime 2014 panel where he will discuss his history developing role-playing games, along with revealing more about his new RPG, Terra Battle. Find out more info at PAX Prime website.
Here there be an Elder Dragon: Funko's Pop! Magic: The Gathering Series 2 available for pre-order by Scarecroodle
Funko's Pop! Magic: The Gathering Series 2 is now available for pre-order. The selection includes the absolute must-own over-sized (6-inch) Elder Dragon Nicol Bolas, Elspeth Tirel, Kiora Atua, Sarkhan Vol, Gideon Jura, and the freakish-looking Tezzeret.
Other than Nicol Bolas, one of the famed Elder Dragons (who premiered back in the Legends expansion in 1994 and has apparently since become a Planeswalker), I can't say that I recognize any of the characters which is unsurprising considering I haven't followed the franchise that closely since the creature-exclusive Le-Gi-Ons! expansion (although I played in a local Planar Chaos release sealed-draft tourney where I top 8'd in my first and only tourney outing). However, even if you're as unfamiliar with these guys as I am, some of the figures like Elspeth and Kiora. More importantly, you have that over-sized Nicol Bolas which you know you want.
Funko's Pop! Magic: The Gathering Series 2 is slated for an October release. The standard figures have a US$10 MSRP while the larger Nicol Bolas will run you US$15.
So we know that Funko has been branching into making Pop! figures from Japanese licenses. They came out with Vocaloid, Black Butler, and Dragon Ball Z figures. Well now they’re making a Pop! series for anime hit, Attack on Titan.
There will be four figures included in this series; Eren Jaeger, Mikasa Ackerman, Eren Jaeger Titan Form, and a six inch Colossal Titan. I’m sure fans will be really excited for this, but there’s a catch. There’s always a catch when Funko comes out with something really cool.
So yes, the Attack on Titan series will be a Hot Topic exclusive. It will be available online at in stores starting in October, and ending in December 2015.
,Funko has unveiled its two newest Hikari sofubi figures, a 10-inch Hikari Premium "Blaze" Spider-Man and a normal-sized "Mythos" Skeletor.
"Blaze" Spider-Man, based (loosely?) on the character's appearance in The Amazing Spider-Man 2, represents a double-first: this is the first Spider-Man in the Hikari line and the first time that we've seen one of these over-sized premium versions (unless I misread the details on a previous one). The figure itself has a somewhat standard-looking deco except for the white detailing which looks like it may be translucent (ie, it may just represent an unpainted part). "Blaze" Spider-Man can be pre-ordered for US$80 and is slated for an October release. He's limited to 1,500 pieces.
"Mythos" Skeletor puts everybody's favorite Overlord of Evil in a weird red, gold, and blue deco. It's the first Skeletor deco that I don't like (although it looks like a traditional enough sofubi colorway), something I wasn't sure was possible. If you are a fan, however, you can pre-order him exclusively from Entertainment Earth for US$50. He's limited to 1,000 pieces and slated for a September release.
Funko has released an image of its upcoming Pop! Ride Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Turtle Van (a.k.a. the Party Wagon), which will include an Pop! pizza Michelangelo.
The Pop! Ride Turtle Van is based on the van's appearance in the original cartoon, which was somewhat more plain than the original toy (which featured an orange door and a "Foot Stinks!" sticker on the side). It's a cute rendition of the iconic Turtles ride and maintains much of its original look (rather than the more stylistic look seen with the Pop Ride! Ecto-1).
The top flips down so you can place the Michelangelo variant inside. Should he be driving with a slice of pizza in his hand? Probably not. Is it a silly variant? Sure, but you know you still want it.
Funko's Pop! Ride Turtle Van can be pre-ordered for US$25 and is slated for a September release.
We already know that Funko will be releasing a Kill Bill Pop! series. Those five figures will be available in September. Now Entertainment Earth has shown that they will have an exclusive from this movie.
It feels like lately, Entertainment Earth has been having some awesome exclusives. Their Breaking Bad Pop! figures have been a favorite of mine, and a hot seller. So now they will have a Bloody Gogo Pop!
As seen in the movie, Gogo will come with blood coming out of her eyes. Available in October, you can pre-order this now for US$12.99.
Funko has announced plans to attend Gen Con Indy 2014 and will be showcasing (and selling) its collectibles at booth 153 (across from the Family Fun Pavilion) from August 14th through the 17th.
Gen Con will offer fans their first chance to pick up Funko's Magic: The Gathering Legacy figures as well as the ONLY chance to own a show-exclusive flocked Pop! Ajani Goldmane. The flocked Ajani will be on sale for US$15.
This weekend we saw a fan take their Supernatural Pop! needs into their own hands. Now it looks like there will indeed be more figures in this series. However, before you get too happy, you should know that these will be Hot Topic exclusives.
So that means you will probably have a hell of a time trying to get your hands on them. Yes, I remember the fury fans were in trying to find a Castiel Pop! I guess Funko saw that as good business, because they are again offering another Castiel figure as an exclusive.
This time the Castiel Pop! figure will have his angel wings. Hot Topic will also be offering an exclusive pre-release of Felicia Day’s character, Charlie. This is the first female character to get a figure and has been made with her wearing her earphones and bag.
These Supernatural figures will be available at Hot Topic soon, so if you want one, be ready!
Funko’s Supernatural Pop! series is a little sparse for a show that’s been on for 10 years. So instead of waiting around for Funko to release more figures, one fan decided to create her own custom figure for the ...
Funko has unveiled its second Hikari Skeletor colorway, "Havoc Skeletor", which consists of a strange mix of metallic color, glitter, and translucence in a deco vaguely reminiscent of the character's actual colors.
While nowhere near as cool (or evil-looking) as the Mystic Powers Skeletor, Havoc Skeletor has a charm of its own as the mix of colors is rather striking. In some ways, it's Funko's most interesting Hikari offering to date
As always, you can enter to win a copy via Funko's Facebook page. Not that you will win, mind you, because the odds are abysmally low and, because it takes about three days for the contest to wrap, the pre-orders could be sold out in that time so you're better off just pre-ordering if you want one.
Hikari Havoc Skeletor is limited to 2,000 pieces and will run you US$50. He's slated for a September release.
It's been a while since we've discussed sports figures on Tomo, but it's about to be actual football season. With Funko having incorporated just about every other popular franchise into its line of Pop! figures, it's about ti...
Many people have asked if I signed up for Lootcrate. It makes sense. I like toys and I love getting mail, especially mystery packages. Well if you needed any more incentive to sign up, the month of August will feature a very special figure for Funko fans.
Lootcrate will have an exclusive Pop! figure that will not be available anywhere else. What the figure will be is of course a secret. The only clue we have is that the theme for this month’s package is Heroes.
Well…that narrows it down! Wouldn’t it be something if that exclusive Pop! figure was Sailor Moon? Now I’ve made myself paranoid, I have to order Loot Crate! If you’re signing up this month, use the code HEROES and get 10% off.
