Funko's latest horror offerings are sure to elicit screams of delight, as the company has added many iconic Universal Studios Monsters to its Pop! Movie line.
The figures (due out in September, meaning they can be on your she...
While NECA's conventional Gremlins offerings seem stalled, the company showed off a FIFTH series of Mogwais at SDCC. As with series 4, the assortment features concept Mogwais originally designed for Gremlins 2: The New Batch.
The new Mogwais are apparently named Patches (that's the calico), Gary (he's all-white), and Zoe (light brown & white). I'm not sure whether these are the original concept names or whether NECA did the naming themselves. However, I know that I really like the look of Patches and I'm moderately tempted to grab Zoe as well just to have a second "female" Mogwai (to keep Penny company on my shelf; you know, overlooking that Mogwai and Gremlins shouldn't have genders (since they reproduce asexually) despite the film's She-Gremlin).
Of the three, Gary seems to be the only Mogwai with a new face. However, the face is probably the least cute one seen thus far and the all-white deco seems boring despite standing out in comparison to the other Mogwai. On the plus side, Gary will be nearly immune to paint app errors.
Although the placard at the booth clearly said "October", NECA's press information for the figures instead lists them as being a November release. The figures are currently available for pre-order either individually for US$14 apiece or together for US$40 (although, at the time of writing, Zoe cannot be pre-ordered separately). Be sure to check out our SDCC photos of the trio in the gallery.
Sideshow's Court of the Dead line is a series of original figure designs with a horror theme. The Queen of the Dead figure had its own display at SDCC last year, but this year there was an entire extra tent dedicated to this ...
Continuing with Sideshow coverage, here's the rest of their licensed statues and maquettes. Star Wars characters featured heavily, as did Marvel. The booth also had a smattering of horror and other movie characters.
Most of the experience is about simply gaping in awe at the larger scale figures (especially the legendary scale ones). Click through for the gallery!
Funko plans to give away some Pop! Hannibal merchandise during SDCC, including an original creation torn straight from the twisted mind of the show's creator, Bryan Fuller!
The Fuller-designed Hannibal Pop! will be on display at Funko's booth (#5343) from Preview Night until the prize drawing on Sunday. All you need to do to enter is stop by the booth and fill out an entry card. In addition, Bryan Fuller himself and actress Caroline Dhavernas (who plays Dr. Alana Bloom on the show) will be at the Funko booth on Friday for signings.
Fans will also have a chance to win a set of the Hannibal Pop!s by keeping their eyes on @NBCHannibal and @OriginalFunko during SDCC.
Ryan Murphy’s twisted horror show, American Horror Story is the latest show to get their own Funko Pop! series. The figures are beautiful and twisted, just like the show itself! For those who don’t know, ea...
Funko has immortalized the iconic Alfred Hitchcock (director of Psycho, The Birds, etc, in addition to having his own mystery show entitled Alfred Hitchcock Presents) with an upcoming Wacky Wobbler bobblehead. But wait, there...
Personally I'm most excited about a reissue of DST's Marvel Select Uatu the Watcher. First released in 2005, he's one of those character who you'd never see other companies tackle and, as such, the original figure can be pretty expensive via the secondary market so it's a somewhat overdue second chance.
Be sure to check out the rest of the offerings, many of which are available for pre-order, in the press release or see their photos in the gallery.
Resident Evil is one of those franchises you'd assume a horror fan would be into, but it's never quite caught on with me. The zombies and assorted monsters are cool, but I've always been turned off by all the convoluted conspiracies (and, at times, also the gameplay). However, I've enjoyed a few of the games and I like many of the character designs like Resident Evil 6's Helena Harper. As such, I was happy to see Square-Enix give the character the Play Arts Kai treatment.

Collecting is hell. Or, at least, hell disguised as heaven. There's too much stuff coming out at any one moment to really appreciate anything. No sooner are you convinced that the current big announcement is the greatest thing ever and you massively want then another big announcement comes along and you forget all about the previous one.
As your collection grows, it also has an annoying habit of consuming every inch of free space and then some. Join me now as I discuss all this and more after the jump.
