SDCC 2014: Transformers display

Rounding out our Transformers coverage at Comic-Con is a gallery for their booth display. I kinda laugh when I refer to something this big as just a "booth" when there's so much on display. We've got photos of many of Hasbro'...

What are you doing this weekend? If you're starting your weekend early at SDCC, you have the chance to pick up Funko's Hikari Metallic Michelangelo at the Nickelodeon booth (#3114). If not, you have the usual chance to win one on Funko's Facebook page.

Metallic Michelangelo is the final figure needed to complete a Metallic Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles line-up, as his announcement follows that of Leonardo, Raphael, and Donatello. Like his three sofubi brothers, Metallic Michelangelo is limited to a 500-piece run although he'll be a bit harder to get your hands since he's being sold at SDCC (doubly hard if you aren't actually at SDCC).

No word on a price point yet, but the other metallic deco turtles were listed for around US$50.

Walgreens-exclusive Hand of the King now available

Funko have released a new Legacy Collection figure of Tyrion Lannister dressed as the King's Hand as seen in Game of Thrones. The figure resembles Tyrion in most ways, but then again, you wouldn't really confuse it for anyone...

So we’ve finally reached the end of Funko’s SDCC exclusives. I’ve seen some cool things, some alright things, and stuff I don’t really care about. Still, I would love to score some of this stuff.

Their last batch is small, just four exclusives. The first two comes from Quentin Tarantino’s Pulp Fiction. There will be special bloody ReAction figures of Vincent Vega and Jules Winnfield.

These exclusives end with two very random Pop! figures. There will be an exclusive of Huckleberry Hound and Gabriel from LMS. Today, Funko also announced the latest figure from their new line, Fabrikation.

There will be a cute and cuddly soft sculpture figure of Rocket Raccoon from Guardians of the Galaxy. Good news, it’s not an exclusive so we can all get this cute little guy!

Funko to sell three exclusive Hikari sofubi at SDCC photo
Funko to sell three exclusive Hikari sofubi at SDCC
by Scarecroodle

Funko is bringing three special edition Hikari sofubi figures to SDCC. "Mean & Green" Raphael (TMNT), "Ice Freeze" Batman, and "Red Rain" Batman will each be sold in a very limited 500 piece run.

"Mean & Green" might be my favorite Raphael deco so far, with a neat color mix and glitter effect (although it's certainly no "Mystic Powers" Skeletor!). "Ice Freeze" Batman is also neat with that blue deco with white eyes, gloves, and boots. Finally there's "Red Rain" Batman, possibly the most colorful use of the Batman mold that we've seen thus far.

As always, fans have to chance to win a copy of the first figure in the run by entering via Funko's Facebook page. It's as good an opportunity as any for those of us not attending SDCC this year. For those who can make it to the show, these will be sold at the Funko booth (#5343).

What Pedro Is Up To: Learning to Love the POP photo
What Pedro Is Up To: Learning to Love the POP
by Pedro Cortes

Looking back, when I first saw the Funko POP series a few years back, I didn't think much of them. I thought they were cute, but I didn't expect for the line to last very long. Well, needless to say that I was wrong. Dead wrong. Multiple lines, a ton of exclusives and dozens of figures later, it's safe to say that the POPs are a success.

However, it took me a long time to start picking up POPs of my own. Despite their cheap price, I didn't want to start dropping money on yet another series of figures. There are just too many that I'd want and if I got started, who knows where I'd stop. Leave it to the Mass Effect series to drag me kicking and screaming into this line, with Funko's first series of toys based on Bioware's space opera RPG.

Now with about ten or so POPs around me room, it's clear that I'm finally a convert to the irresistibly cute collectables. Hit the jump to see which ones have made it into my abode!

Funko will bring Goonies goodness to SDCC photo
Funko will bring Goonies goodness to SDCC
by Vanessa Cubillo

So we’re getting close to the end of Funko’s SDCC exclusives reveals. I’ve been pretty excited about a few of their figures, especially the Pop! Headless Hershel. Today’s batch of exclusives features a mix of movies, and more Game of Thrones.

It’s a popular show, I know, but so is The Walking Dead and Buffy the Vampire Slayer! Ok, so let’s kick this off with their latest Game of Thrones exclusive. From the Legacy Collection, there will be a Battle Damaged Tyrion Lannister with his weapon and helmet.

Next, there will be a Nightmare Before Christmas ReAction figure of Jack Skellington and his dog, Zero. Keeping with the spooky, there will also be a glow in the dark and blood splattered Billy from Saw. There will also be a Pop! Sloth from The Goonies wearing his Superman shirt. If you wanted this Sloth in another form, there will also be a ReAction figure of this particular Sloth as well.

Get ready for more Game of Thrones SDCC exclusives from Funko photo
Get ready for more Game of Thrones SDCC exclusives from Funko
by Vanessa Cubillo

We’ve seen some Game of Thrones exclusives already from Funko, but today’s seventh announcement really focuses on this HBO hit show. The first exclusive announcement contains many spoilers! If you are not up to date with the show, or haven’t even watched and want to later, go away right now!

Funko will be releasing an exclusive Game of Thrones Mystery Minis series consisting of characters who have died. The series will be called “In Memoriam,” and there will be eight figures included all in black and white. I’m not naming them to avoid spoilers, but if you look at the photos, you can see who they are.

There will also be an exclusive Pop! figure of Ghost flocked. If you like the flocked style, there will also be a flocked exclusive Pop! Lion-O from ThunderCats. Also from ThunderCats, there will be a glow in the dark Mumm-Ra.

Ending on an extremely random note, there will also be a SDCC exclusive Pop! of Sharknado. This time he’s all bloody!

Biggest Hikari Friday yet includes brand-new Gillman mold photo
Biggest Hikari Friday yet includes brand-new Gillman mold
by Scarecroodle

One-upping previous reveals and giveaways, Funko has unveiled three new Hikari figures which includes a new Gillman (The Creature from the Black Lagoon) mold. All three are currently available for pre-order.

"Apocalypse Creature" will be an Entertainment Earth exclusive. While this wouldn't be the first time that a newly revealed mold would appear first as an exclusive, I'm still a little surprised given that it's a completely new mold and is the first Hikari figure not pertaining to either a cartoon or comic. Gillman has long been my favorite movie monster and I've subsequently seen a lot of merchandise over the years, including other Funko items, but the Hikari Apocalypse Creature looks distinct enough to set itself apart from the pack. I'm not sure where the "Apocalypse" moniker fits in, as the coloring just looks like a metallic Gillman, but he looks great.  Funko's Hikari Apocalypse Creature is limited to 750 pieces and will run you US$50.

Optimus Prime and Bumblebee have each received a second deco, in the form of "Battle Ready" versions (the "Clear Glitter" versions were unveiled in June). The Battle Ready versions have a really neat slightly rusted, old toy look to them. Each one is limited to 1,000 pieces.

You can win one of the three by entering Funko's Facebook contest. Even though three people will win something this time around, it's not like the odds are great and, since the figures sell out fast, I'd suggest putting in a pre-order if you're interested.

Breaking Bad and Walking Dead are included in Funko's latest SDCC batch photo
Breaking Bad and Walking Dead are included in Funko's latest SDCC batch
by Vanessa Cubillo

Funko did it! I said I wanted them to surprise me, and that’s just what they did. Their sixth batch of SDCC exclusives all comes from hit TV shows.

The first two come from the critically acclaimed, Breaking Bad. This series is getting massive! There’s already ten regular figures, two Entertainment Earth exclusives, and now two SDCC exclusives.

There will be a glow in the dark Walter White in his yellow cook suit, and a badly beaten Jesse Pinkman. Next comes my favorite Pop! exclusive so far; The Walking Dead’s Hershel Greene. What makes this exclusive so special?

Well, tragically, Hershel comes with a removable head just like the SDCC exclusive last year of Game of ThronesNed Stark. I joked some time ago about Funko making this figure, so I’m happy they actually did. Speaking of Game of Thrones, there will be a Glow in the dark version of a White Walker from the Legacy Collection.

The last two exclusives come from My Little Pony. There will be Vinyl Collectible versions of DJ Pon-3 and Spitfire. Remember to like and share Funko’s SDCC posts on social media for a chance to win these exclusives. I want that Hershel Pop!
