He was only on screen for a brief glimpse into his underwater lair, but Jason Momoa's Aquaman was for many a highlight cameo in this year's BATMAN v SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE. Set for a greater appearance in the currently-filming two-part JUSTICE LEAGUE (out next year from Warner Bros. Pictures) before going solo in 2018, the fan-favorite from the world of DC Comics has already received the Funko Pop! Vinyl treatment in a couple of variations, but this summer one of the coolest is coming to market as an Entertainment Earth Exclusive to debut at SDCC! My friends at EE have partnered with THE ROCK FATHER Magazine for an exclusive reveal of the Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice Aquaman Patina Pop! Vinyl Figure - Entertainment Earth Convention Exclusive* that's splashing out of the ocean and into your collection!
Two days ago, Tom Burns of 8-Bit Dad weighed in on the usual hard-to-find nature of female action figures by making an off-the-cuff remark about the future availability of toys from Director Paul Fieg's GHOSTBUSTERS. The new film starring Kristin Wiig, Melissa McCarthy, Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones is out July 15 via Columbia Pictures/Sony, and from the looks of things, next month's annual Toy Fair International in New York City should have no shortage of GHOSTBUSTERS goodness. According to Fieg on twitter, pretty much all of the current licensees for classic GHOSTBUSTERS merch (based on the 1984 film and its 1989 sequel) are in the mix - LEGO, Diamond Select, Funko, and more - and will be producing over 20 figures in various sizes and styles. The first batch to be revealed? Mattel's 6" line of articulated figures. Take a look...

Back in June, I took some of the then-just-released ANT-MAN toys from my personal collection to the press junket for MARVEL's ANT-MAN in Los Angeles. It was there that many of the cast members (including Paul Rudd, Evangeline Lilly, Corey Stoll, Michael Douglas, T.I., Michael Pena and David Dastmalchian) got their first look at they toys from their debut entry into the MARVEL Cinematic Universe. One of the biggest hits was my Funko Pop! Vinyl Yellowjacket, which put a huge smile on Corey Stoll's face before the interviews got started. What I didn't find until after the junket was a Pop! Vinyl Ant-Man, and now the little guy is back with one of the film's most unexpectedly-popular co-stars... ANT-THONY. This December, Funko will release an ANT-MAN and ANT-THONY Pop! RIDES 2-Pack, available for pre-order now via my friends at Entertainment Earth.

By now, the Dancing Baby Groot from the end of MARVEL's GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY is a familiar, if not iconic fixture for even those who haven't seen the movie. Here at our house, The Rock Daughters even associate the little guy with The Jackson 5, breaking into that "Groot dance" whenever they hear "I Want You Back." I also have the Funko Pop! Vinyl Dancing Groot here in my office, and they always want to play with him. Now, with the holiday season fast-approaching, Funko is releasing a special edition Pop! Vinyl that brings it all together... Holiday Dancing Groot!
