I have a little confession. Despite all the awesome that comes out of Funko, there has never been a Pop! Vinyl figure that I took one look at and said, "I absolutely must have that!" And believe me, I own hundreds of them and there's many more that I'd like to own. But until today, there has never been a single figure that I've absolutely just thrown money at the screen for... until today. The undisputed Greatest Television Series of All-Time™* is finally getting the Pop! Vinyl treatment, and it's coming through the Pop! Rides line. The KNIGHT RIDER  Michael Knight with K.I.T.T. figure pays tribute to the excellent 1982-1986 NBC television series that brought audiences along for "a shadowy flight into the dangerous world of a man who does not exist." It also let kids like me know that "one man can make a difference," while inspiring much of the automotive and AI technology that exists in the world today. Available for pre-order via my friends at Entertainment Earth (an affiliate) for an August/September delivery, this is sure to become a sought-after addition to any Pop! Collection, and one desired by all with good taste.

Back in March, DreamWorks released NEED FOR SPEED, their big-screen adaptation of the popular video game series from Electronic Arts. I was able to catch an advance screening on my trip to Los Angeles earlier in the year, and eventually threw down some virtual ink about the film here on THE ROCK FATHER. While I was a little mixed on the film as a whole, it was fun, and I called it "exhilarating, yet at times, unsettling." In the few months since, I'd wanted to see it again, if only to re-live the impressive stunt work... and on August 5, I'll get that chance when NEED FOR SPEED arrives on Blu-ray Combo Pack, Digital HD, DVD and On-Demand. I've got the specs on the home release below, but did you know that Mattel has also released some Hot Wheels based on cars featured in the NEED FOR SPEED film? Read on, friends...
