AD-31 Optimus Prime is the figure we should have started with

At this point Transformers fans have come to learn one constant when it comes movie figures: never by the launch releases. I mean, we buy them anyway, we can't help ourselves, but we do so knowing that at some point an even b...

Is it time to Pop! open the Jungle Book? And, um, something Robin Hood photo
Is it time to Pop! open the Jungle Book? And, um, something Robin Hood
by Scarecroodle

Funko has released some official images of its upcoming Pop! figures from two classic Disney films. The Jungle Book's Mowgli, Shere Khan, and Kaa as well as Robin Hood's Robin Hood, Prince John, and Sir Hiss (no relation to King Hiss) are slated for release this month.

While I can't say that I was a fan of either film as a kid, Prince John, Kaa, Shere Khan, and Sir Hiss (see gallery) are adorable. I'm somewhat less found of the titular Robin Hood, but he still looks pretty neat.

Expect to see these guys on shelves near you in the near future, if they aren't there already. (Especially if you've already bought them. Then you'd just need to look over to see them on the shelves.)

NYCC 2014: Bandai of America
by Scarecroodle

While many view Bandai of America as the poor (American) man's version of Bandai of Japan, the company has notably been offering fans things that its Asian counterpart have not: the American-exclusive Power Rangers villains (Lord Zedd and now Ivan Ooze) and recreations of the ninetiestalgic Power Rangers Zords and accessories. Otherwise BoA continues to offer the more kid-friendly, affordable merchandise that it's known for.

Details (and images) after the jump.

Funko adds even more Frankenstein to its Hikari line
by Scarecroodle

Funko this week announced plans to release another two Frankenstein redecos to its Hikari line. The funky, eye-catching "Glitter Shock" Frankenstein (limited to 1,200 pieces) features a translucent, glittery design while the Entertainment Earth "Distressed" Frankenstein (600 pieces) sports a more antique look. Sufficed to say, they're both very neat designs.

Glitter Shock Frankenstein can be ordered for US$50 while the premium Distressed version will run you US$80. Both are slated to come out later this year. If you want a chance to win one, head over to Funko's Facebook page.
