How HBO saved Valentine's Day (A gift guide)

Feb 09 // Scarecroodle
How deep is your love? Is it a deep bond between souls or is it more of a puppy love? Either way, you'll love these direwolf puppies... err, cubs.  Summer, Shaggy Dog, Grey Wind, and Lady are all available as adorable 9-inch plushies. Can't choose between them? Why not buy all four? (Oh, right, money...) Perhaps equally eye-catching is this Drogon plush, which would look equally at home on a shelf, couch, or spewing flames on a fleet of ships. He stands 8-inches tall with a 14-inch wingspan. The HBO Store also carries a lot of Funko collectibles, including this Pop! Rides Dany on Drogon. And yes, they somehow still have series 1 Game of Thrones Mystery Minis if you missed grabbing them when they came out. Do you like Funko but are indifferent about Game of Thrones? How about a Pop! John Oliver? The star of Last Week Tonight (and guy who replaced Jon Stewart on the Daily Show for an entire summer) is ready to bring his British wit and self-deprecating sense of humor to your shelves (or your partner's, but honestly, you're going to want to keep this one for yourself). At any rate, you'll be surprised by the stuff you find at the HBO Store (I know I was). Some things make for very practical gifts (after all, who doesn't love a plushie?) while other things are impractical (but that just makes it more of a surprise, right?). And yes, the HBO store also has conventional gift ideas like mugs, shirts, shot glasses, and even jewelry, if you feel like being boring. [ Check out everything at the HBO Store ]
Valentine's photo
(Or might save it. Who knows?)
Hey guys & gals, it's just five more days until Valentine's Day. Have you bought anything nice for your partner? (Or for yourself?) If you're sick of giving jewelry (and who isn't?), maybe it's time to head over to the HBO Store to check out their wide array of... okay, well, it's mostly a lot of Game of Thrones stuff. But it's neat stuff! Honest! Check out the full gift guide after the jump.

Funko's Pop! line is about to get Stranger.... Things

Nov 04 // Scarecroodle
Full press release: (Spoilers) Funko is bringing the Netflix Original Series Stranger Things to collectors and fans in 2017! Coming in early next year, fans of this amazing show will be able to take home Pop! vinyl versions of their favorite characters, including Eleven, Mike, Dustin, Lucas, Will, Barb, and, of course, the terrifying Demogorgon from the Upside Down! In September, Funko posted two concept images of Eleven and Barb in an effort to gauge the interest of fans and customers. The images - which were shared on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram - resulted in a huge amount of interest from fans around the world with everyone saying one thing: “When can we get these?!” “Bringing Stranger Things to Funko is symbolic of our connection to our customers as mutual fans of pop culture”, said Mark Robben, Funko’s Director of Marketing. “We feel grateful for the privilege to create our version of these wonderful characters, but we never forget it starts with the collectors. These figures would not have been possible without every single share, like, and comment from you. Friends don't lie.” The Stranger Things figures are available for pre-order now and should hit retail shelves in early 2017 with an MSRP of $9.99 USD. Pop! vinyl figures are sculpted vinyl collectibles, approximately 3-4” inches high and packaged in a windowed display box.

What are you doing tomorrow night? How about in November? Funko has a selection of Animation Pop!s based on the hit cartoon Animaniacs on the way in November. These upcoming figures consist of the megalomaniacal mouse Brain and his stupid side-kick Pinky (Pinky & The Brain) as well as siblings Yakko, Wakko, and Dot. This only leaves one question: When can we expect Goodfeathers Pop! figures?

Odin the Destroyer may be the most powerful figure in DST's Marvel Select line

Jun 17 // Scarecroodle
A Diamond Select Toys Release! Prepare to be destroyed! The next 7-inch-scale Marvel Select action figure is the Destroyer, the massive Asgardian automaton that regularly menaces the Mighty Thor! Measuring approximately 9 inches tall with 16 points of articulation, this spiked powerhouse comes with the powerful Odinsword, as well as an interchangeable head, revealing the one-eyed face of the All-Father, Odin, from the times he has worn the armor in battle! Whether you choose to display him as the Destroyer or as Odin, he’s more than a match for your Marvel Select Thor, or Hulk, or even Juggernaut! Packaged in the display-ready Select packaging, with spine artwork for shelf reference. Sculpted by Jean St. Jean!
