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

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 r...

Convention Exclusive announces variants of Supernatural Pop! figures photo
Convention Exclusive announces variants of Supernatural Pop! figures
by Vanessa Cubillo

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.

Tomopop Review: Funko's Marvel Mystery Minis Loki
by Scarecroodle

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.

Full review after the jump.

Funko introduces their new DIY Pop! figures photo
Funko introduces their new DIY Pop! figures
by Vanessa Cubillo

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.
