Upcoming figures from Alter, MegaHouse
It's late fall so you know what that means: MegaHobby Expo time! I'm always hyped to see what kind of new stuff is coming soon (or in Alter's case, much later). Let this be a reminder for all of you to start saving up! Here's...

Matty Collector photo
A chance to save
Matty Collector started its Black Friday & Cyber Monday celebration on Wednesday, with a 40% off sale on an array of older items and -- to top it off -- free shipping on all orders. While the savings are slightly less tha...

Marvel Legends photo
Who doesn't love a sale?
Long-time readers probably know that, while I'm a fan of the Marvel Legends line, the price hikes over the years have been insane. Back when Hasbro re-launched the line, the figures were about US$13 but since then the MSRP ha...

Are you excited for the new Logan movie? If so, you may be happy to learn that Funko is commemorating the film with 3 new Pop! figures. If not, well... you can still look forward to 3 new Wolverine-themed Pop! figures. The li...

Iron Giants may be less giant
November is a BIG month for Diamond Select Toys, as the company has started taking pre-orders for some very big collectibles. (Figurative big, not literal big. They're normal-sized!) This includes a DC Gallery DCAU Poison Ivy...

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.

Animaniacs photo
Perfect for (almost) taking over world
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?

A second series of Funko's WWE Mystery Minis are on the way and, despite including the "Million Dollar Man" Ted DiBiase, the figures are expected to retail for the usual US$6 or so. The roster for this wave is a mix of legend...

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!
