Crispy! Funko premieres its "Burnt" Stay Puft Marshmallow Man Hikari

Funko has debuted its latest Hikari mold, the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man (Ghostbusters), with a "Burnt" deco reminiscent of the character's fate in the first film... and many of the video games. The mold itself is a mix of cut...

Did Toronto call for a Doctor? Titan brings a slew of Doctor Who merchandise to Toronto Fan Expo 2014 photo
Did Toronto call for a Doctor? Titan brings a slew of Doctor Who merchandise to Toronto Fan Expo 2014
by Scarecroodle

Titan Merchandise has brought a galaxy of Doctor Who merchandise (but is it enough doctor for Rob Ford?) to the Toronto Fan Expo. The convention exclusives include a 9-inch version of the Beast ("The Impossible Planet"/"The Satan Pit"), the War Doctor (John Hurt), and 11th Doctor (Matt Smith) In 10th Doctor (David Tennant) Suit. Also debuting is "The Gallifrey Collection" blind-boxed series. All in all, this might be the biggest thing to hit Toronto since Mayor Rob Ford.

While I love the look of the Beast ("star" of one of my favorite Doctor Who 2-parters), the Gallifrey Collection might really steal the show. Its roster includes things like a "Bad Wolf"-graffiti'd TARDIS and Lord President Rassilon. Of course, the Beast will look pretty cool when scaled against those other figures...

The Titans Merchandise Booth 938 is located in the South Building of the Metro Center and will feature a wide array of collectibles (in addition to the ones mentioned above).

Pick up Funko's Pop! AJ Lee before she vanishes for several months to get married to Pop! CM Punk photo
Pick up Funko's Pop! AJ Lee before she vanishes for several months to get married to Pop! CM Punk
by Scarecroodle

ShopWWE.com has listed a Pop! AJ Lee. Fans will best recall AJ Lee as the vibrant, fun diva who held the WWE Divas Championship for a record-setting 295 days before dropping the title to newcomer (and then-NXT Women's Champion) Paige the night after Wrestlemania presumably so she could take some time off to get ready for her then-impending marriage to a wrestler described (often by himself) as being the best in the world. 

Funko's Pop! AJ Lee is currently available through the official WWE online store for US$15.

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 photo
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 photo
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: Mezco photo
SDCC 2014: Mezco
by Scarecroodle

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...
