Custom creator Vongeek puts some POP into Wreck-it Ralph

Funko to re-release classic Pop!s, starting with the oufit that launched a million cosplays: Slave Leia
by Scarecroodle

Funko is set to re-release many of its popular older Pop!s, starting with Slave Leia (and the previously announced Jedi Luke).

The decision was said to be made in regards to the upcoming Star Wars: Episode VII. The re-released figures will come in new packaging (to differentiate itself from the originals). Interestingly, it looks like the packaging layout itself was re-used (including the figure number), but it's now just in a black deco (with a silver box at the bottom).

This series has been dubbed, "Star Wars Vaulted," presumably as a reference to Disney's practice of discontinuing the sale of its films to maintain their value. At any rate, it's a great opportunity if you missed one of these figures the figure time around and don't want to overpay on the aftermarket. Hopefully we'll see it with some of the other franchises in the future.

Look for Slave Leia in April.

Think Pink Batman photo

The moment you've all been waiting for has arrived: Pre-orders third of Entertainment Earth's exclusive Funko Pop! Rainbow Batman figures. You might know it better as... the Pink Batman!

The most ludicrous of the "rainbow" Batman disguises, the pink Batman comes to us from a campier time in comics before guys like Frank Miller came along and started to turn the franchise gritty-dark. The hilarious impetuous for these costumes was Batman's attempt to draw attention away from Robin's injured arm, which could have exposed his secret identity if people noticed that Dick Grayson (the young ward of millionaire playboy Bruce Wayne) also had an injured arm. After all, who can look away from a pink Batman?

The pink "rainbow" Batman (which will no doubt be the best-selling of the lot for the sheer oddity of a pink Batman) can be pre-ordered for US$13 and is slated for a May release.

We may yet see a pink Batman: EE to sell Pop! yellow 'Rainbow' Batman
by Scarecroodle

We recently discussed the possibility of DC Collectibles releasing a "Rainbow" Batman action figure set and now, apparently not to be outdone, Funko will be releasing a Pop! yellow Rainbow Batman. The figure is the first in an Entertainment Earth exclusive series (see the teaser in the gallery) with a new figure announced each Friday so fans may very well see a pink Batman. And a green one. And a purple one.

Funko's Pop! yellow Batman can currently be pre-ordered for US$13. He's due out in either March (if you believe the article) or May (if you look at his pre-order page). No word yet as to which of those is correct, although I'd assume he'd appear sooner rather than later. Remember: Look for a new design each Friday.

Funko launches new subscription service photo
Funko launches new subscription service
by Scarecroodle

Not content to simply be packaged in other peoples' Loot Crates and so forth, Funko has announced plans to launch its own bi-monthly club.

The "Marvel Collector Corps" subscription box service apparently consists of six shipments (at US$25 each, not counting taxes and S&H) which arrive every other month and will contain "exclusive themed items valued at over [US$50] in every box."

The service is apparently available in both a basic "Collector" level package as well as a premium "Founder" level. The difference, as near as I can tell, is that the Founder package charges you the full US$150 for the year upfront and includes some extra goodies (including an 8-inch commemorative statue; see gallery).

The Founder package is obviously the better value although I expect that not everybody may be willing to commit to a year sight-unseen (and that totally awesome statue is contingent on a subscriber remaining in the club for a full year).

While the contents and themes of upcoming boxes may be a mystery, we at least know that the first box will have an Avengers: Age of Ultron theme and include a premium 6-inch Pop! Hulkbuster Iron Man. It's a wacky adorable figure which may entice at least a few subscribers into the club. Also included will be a t-shirt, a stylized vinyl accessory, and two "premium accessories."

All hands on deck! Batten down the hatches because Funko has unleashed a flood of collectibles for Marvel's upcoming Avengers: Age of Ultron. Rarely do we see this much merchandises for a franchise, let alone all at once but Funko intends to inundate collectors with selections from FIVE different lines in March (and a little of April).

See all the Avenger-y details after the jump.

Funko's previously revealed Pop! Cthulhu not scary enough for you? What if he had red eyes? And glowed in the dark?

Entertainment Earth will be exclusively selling such a variant which looks just as cool as the first version (meaning it's time to buy both?). While I'm not the biggest fan of glow-in-the-dark gimmicks, the EE exclusive looks great by daylight as well. When you couple these two fantastic releases with DST's upcoming vinyl bank bust, 2015 might be the year of Cthulhu.

Funko's EE-exclusive glow-in-the-dark Pop! Cthulhu can be pre-ordered for US$11 and is slated for a March release. Are you ready for some real March Madness?
