Funko releases Walking Dead Pop! series five

So while fans of The Walking Dead wait for season five to begin in October, Funko is releasing their series five of The Walking Dead Pop! figures. We'll be getting six new figures this time, and none of them are Daryl. Sorry,...

Funko has released an image of its upcoming Pop! Ride Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Turtle Van (a.k.a. the Party Wagon), which will include an Pop! pizza Michelangelo.

The Pop! Ride Turtle Van is based on the van's appearance in the original cartoon, which was somewhat more plain than the original toy (which featured an orange door and a "Foot Stinks!" sticker on the side). It's a cute rendition of the iconic Turtles ride and maintains much of its original look (rather than the more stylistic look seen with the Pop Ride! Ecto-1).

The top flips down so you can place the Michelangelo variant inside. Should he be driving with a slice of pizza in his hand? Probably not. Is it a silly variant? Sure, but you know you still want it.

Funko's Pop! Ride Turtle Van can be pre-ordered for US$25 and is slated for a September release.

More Supernatural Pop! Exclusives will be coming to Hot Topic photo
More Supernatural Pop! Exclusives will be coming to Hot Topic
by Vanessa Cubillo

This weekend we saw a fan take their Supernatural Pop! needs into their own hands. Now it looks like there will indeed be more figures in this series. However, before you get too happy, you should know that these will be Hot Topic exclusives.

So that means you will probably have a hell of a time trying to get your hands on them. Yes, I remember the fury fans were in trying to find a Castiel Pop!  I guess Funko saw that as good business, because they are again offering another Castiel figure as an exclusive.

This time the Castiel Pop! figure will have his angel wings. Hot Topic will also be offering an exclusive pre-release of Felicia Day’s character, Charlie. This is the first female character to get a figure and has been made with her wearing her earphones and bag.

These Supernatural figures will be available at Hot Topic soon, so if you want one, be ready!

Custom Delights: Funko Pop! Supernatural Crowley

Funko’s Supernatural Pop! series is a little sparse for a show that’s been on for 10 years. So instead of waiting around for Funko to release more figures, one fan decided to create her own custom figure for the ...

Off the shelf and into your pocket: Funko's Pocket Pop! keychains
by Scarecroodle

Apparently recognized the impracticality of taking Pop! figures with you, Funko has decided to release a line of Pocket Pop! keychains. You know, it's like the old saying goes: "Go tiny or stay at home."

The first offerings in this line (which apparently premiered at SDCC?) includes Batman, Harley Quinn, the four Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Jon Snow, Daenerys, Daryl Dixon, and Rick Grimes. As such, it's a nice cross-section of different series.

While I like the figures, non-metal keychain collectibles tend to get messed up pretty quickly as keys can really wreck the paint, etc. As such, I'm wondering how well these will hold up under the pressure. There's currently no word as to pricing but expect pre-orders to open soon.

SDCC 2014: Diamond Select Toys 'The Best of All Worlds' Panel
by Scarecroodle

Diamond Select Toys' action-packed SDCC included its "Best of All Worlds" Panel, which featured a look at DST's non-Minimates offerings. Some of the slides covered items revealed at the show like the Marvel Select Carnage (booth photos in gallery), MS Cable, and MLP:FIM Rarity vinyl bank as well as upcoming items like the 1966 Batman tv series unmasked Catwoman and Penguin resin busts.

Information from the panel apparently includes the news that Toys "R" Us will be carrying an exclusive color edition of 6-inch Select Sin City figures (see gallery) and that Alien-licensed bank busts will released this Fall along with an Alien Pulse Rifle bottle opener. Additionally, the B-9 Robot will apparently be getting his own bottle opener (albeit it's nowhere near as cool as the Mecha Godzilla bottle opener).

While I'm happy that DST is continuing its Batman tv series of resin and vinyl bank busts, I somehow keep missing announcements. For instance, I was surprised to see a photo of a masked Catwoman bank bust from the booth appear on other websites; in fact, every time I blink I imagine that DST may use the opportunity to sneak a new one by me. That aside, it's great to see that a Burgess Meredith Penguin resin bust is on the way.

Otherwise, the Marvel Select Carnage has allegedly been mentioned as including as many alternate parts as the acclaimed MS Venom, although those parts have yet to be revealed.

Be sure to check out the gallery for a few highlights and a look at the MS Carnage (along with Cable) at the booth.

SDCC 2014: Monster High

Greetings, ghouls and spooks! This year there were a ton of new Monster High dolls shown on display that you'll be able to pick up in upcoming months. After recently getting my boyfriend addicted to Monster High, I'm excited ...

Mezco's booth once again featured a good deal of Sons of Anarchy and Breaking Bad collectibles, including a Gus Fring figure and a spoiler-y Gus Fring figure (so avoid the rest of that photo if you're planning on watching the show) as well as a Saul Goodman bobblehead (better call your favorite retailers!). Among the other items on display was the new Frank Miller-inspired Dark Knight Batman line, some new Living Dead Dolls, and so on.

I remain impressed by the Gillman and Headless Horseman Living Dead Dolls; however, I'm a little confused since the Headless Horseman is currently available for pre-order but there's nothing about his horse. A few of the additions look neat as well.

Be sure to check out the gallery, especially since I can't ID any of the Sons of Anarchy and Breaking Bad characters. You know, if nothing else, Mezco's booth is a reminder that I really need to watch those shows already...

by Scarecroodle

The Matty Collector panel at SDCC (or "Mattypalooza") was described as featuring a lot of new Masters-related announcements and, well, little else. However, some major non-Masters news came in the form of an announcement that Matty Collector had plans to make figures based on The Real Ghostbusters cartoon which, by itself, is worth four or five average announcements.

While our on-site attendees didn't take photos during the presentation (we have a lot of booth photos, though!), fortunately Matty Collector once again uploaded the slides featured in the panel. Join me as I take a look at the announcements after the jump.

SDCC 2014: Pop Culture Shock

If you like large, well-painted figures, Pop Culture Shock may have what you need. If they don't have what you need, give them a year and see what random licenses they pick up. This year they carved out their own piece of the floor at SDCC, and marked it with some Akuma busts and a big red demon.

Great news, true believers! Spider-Man 2099, Agent Coulson, Thanos, Hobgoblin, Maria Hill, and more were featured in a batch of press photos sent over by Hasbro.

While we hope to get some of our own photos of a few of these (some of whom were added to the booth after our visit), these should help to tide you over until then. First, and most importantly (to me, anyway), is the announcement that Spider-Man 2099 will be among the first wave of the 2015 Spider-Man Legends figures.

Continued after the jump.
