Tomopop Review: Funko's Pop! Mumm-Ra photo
Tomopop Review: Funko's Pop! Mumm-Ra
by Scarecroodle

ThunderCats was a fixture of '80s television. Although the 1980s was host to a lot of quirky cartoons that mixed fantasy and science fiction (such as Visionaries: Knights of the Magical Light), ThunderCats has enjoyed an enduring cultural legacy thanks to its catty cast and catchy theme-song.

A reboot of the series has come and gone, but the original lives on through pop culture references and collectibles like Funko's Pop! ThunderCats vinyl figures. While it's always cool to see the Pop! take on average characters, there's something even more fun when it's an over-sized, muscular villain like Mumm-Ra being shrunken down. So how scaredorable is he? Details after the jump.

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.

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.

Pop! How to Train Your Dragon figures soon to take flight
by Jeremy Emerje Crocker

You'll have to wait all the way to June to see Dreamworks' sequel to the 2010, How to Train Your Dragon 2, but you only need to wait until April to get your hands on these new Pop! Vinyl figures from Funko. The six figures include the five-years-older versions of Hiccup and Astrid, but the real stars are the four dragons. Hookfang, Stormfly, Barf & Belch, and perhaps one of the most adorable version of Toothless you'll ever see are all included in this release. 

I was really surprised by how good the original movie was so I have high hopes for the sequel. I really hope Funko can go back and give the original the Pop! treatment as well! If you want to see more of these and other upcoming Pop! figures check out our Toy Fair 2014 coverage
