Funko's Hikari Transformers are feeling a little distressed *and* golden

Funko today unleashed a double double set of reveals (ie, two reveals of two figures): "Distressed" and "24k" copies of Hikari Optimus Prime and Bumblebee (Transformers), all of which are currently up for pre-order. While mos...

Funko has unveiled not one, not two, but THREE new Hikari designs. While all three use existing molds (Gillman, Frankenstein, and Skeletor), this might be the first triple reveal since before SDCC.

Mythos Frankenstein is Hikari Frankenstein's first redeco (or second use of the mold) and sports a pink & green color scheme that stands in pretty stark contrast to the Mythos Skeletor we saw back in August. Given the differences in deco, I'm honestly not sure why they share the "Mythos" moniker. You can compare this to the also-revealed Grey Skull Skeletor whose stark white & black color scheme matches the previously revealed Grey Skull Optimus and Bumblebee.

Finally, there's the Gold Secret Base Creature from the Black Lagoon (ie, Gillman) who features a translucent body with glitter inside and metallic gold parts on the outside. This might be just the second time that we've seen the Gillman mold, something that I have a hard time believing.

Mythos Frankenstein and Gold Secret Base Creature are both Gemini Collectibles exclusives. Frankenstein is limited to 750 pieces, is slated for November, and will run you US$50 while the Creature has a smaller 500 piece run, costs a heftier US$80, and is expected to release in October. The non-exclusive Grey Skull Skeletor is limited to 1,000 pieces, has a US$50 list price, and is slated for October. As always, you can win one of the first production copies of *one* of these figures by entering Funko's Facebook contest.

SDCC and WonFes may have been almost a month ago at this point, but many of its collectibles are still on our minds. Tian recently posted the top ten things he was looking forward to from these cons and, because I'm far more excitably (and exceedingly less orderly), my own highlights list is nowhere near that short.

See many of my favorites after the jump.

Loot Crate's September crate is Galactic, packed with exclusives

We officially have one foot firmly in September and Loot Crate has announced the theme for this month's box. Drawing from the Sci-fi realms of Star Trek, Star Wars, and Firefly, the next round is called "Galactic." As always, the specifics of the Crate's contents is a mystery but we received word that it will contain three exclusive items, one of which will be a Funko Mystery Mini figure. One lucky subscriber will also receive the Mega Crate, stuffed with US$1,000 worth of goodies. You can get an idea of what the Galactic Mega Crate will contain from the image in the gallery.

If you aren't already a subscriber, you can sign up for Loot Crate here. There is a 1-month plan (US$19.37) as well as 3-month (US$55.11) and 6-month (US$105.99) ones.

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

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 cute and creepy. I love the body work, but that face really weird me out. Maybe if the eyes weren't looking down I wouldn't be tempted to turn the thing around so it's not looking at me but, I suppose, the original character was intended to creepy so it fits the general vibe.

The choice of deco is somewhat intuitive since it gives Funko some flexibility while achieving an iconic look. The glossy metallic blue used for the bib (?) and part of the hat also looks great.

Funko's "Burnt" Stay Puft Hikari can be pre-ordered for US$80 and is slated for a November release. As always, you can also win one by entering Funko's Facebook contest.

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 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!
