"Halls of Justice Painted Green/Money Talking..." 

As Metallica's legendary album "...And Justice For All" celebrates its 30th anniversary, you're gonna want to set aside a little bit of that green (around $11 or so) for the new LADY JUSTICE Pop! Vinyl figure from Funko! Just-announced, this iconic statue is brought to life once more as a 3 3/4" vinyl figure in a way that only the folks at Funko can. My friends at Entertainment Earth just put pre-orders online, with an expected ship date of November... just in time for the November 2 release of the expanded edition versions of the album. Sadly, word on the street is that Jason Newsted's mighty basslines may still be missing (or at least barely audible).

For those wondering why Ellie Sattler wasn't released during the first wave of vintage-styled Jurassic Park Pop! Vinyls from Funko, she's finally rolling in! As the latest release in the Funko Pop! Rides series, the Jurassic Park Jeep with Ellie Sattler just went up for pre-order today via my friends at Entertainment Earth. Following the release of the Star Wars: The Last Jedi Vice Admiral Holdo Pop!, I do believe that this is the second time that a character portrayed by Laura Dern has been given the vinyl treatment.

Ah, the Corleone family has never been more adorable. In celebration of the 45th anniversary of Francis Ford Coppola's The Godfather, the folks at Funko have given some famed cinematic mobsters a POP! Vinyl overhaul. Coming in February, Vito Corleone (Marlon Brando), Michael Corleone (Al Pacino), Sonny Corleone (James Caan) and that poor fisherman, Fredo Corleone (John Cazale) get POP!'d, and they're all up for pre-order through my allies at Entertainment Earth.

As the folks at Funko prepare to set their "Jabba's Palace" edition of their STAR WARS Smuggler's Bounty subscription boxes free upon the world, here at Rock Father HQ the time has come to share our unboxing of the most recent installment, "Bounty Hunters." While little Finley of The Rock Daughters™ and I cracked this open weeks ago (big sister Addie was at school), I'm late when it comes to posting, but I assure you that it's probably the cutest unboxing of these that you'll see...

Something strange is going on here... perhaps a resurgence of THE A-TEAM, or just some savvy marketing of the NBC Universal television lineup of the mid 1980s? After the recent announcement that THE A-TEAM and KNIGHT RIDER are coming to LEGO Dimensions (could AIRWOLF be far behind?), Funko has revealed that the crack commando unit is getting the Pop! Vinyl treatment with B.A. Baracus, John "Hannibal" Smith, "Howling Mad" Murdock and Templeton "Faceman" Peck coming to the Pop! Television line in August, followed by THE A-TEAM VAN as a new addition to the Pop! Rides collection in September. All of these are available for pre-order now via my allies over at Entertainment Earth, and since I already have the Hot Wheels Retro Entertainment versions of the famed GMC Van and Face's Chevrolet Corvette in my office here at Rock Father HQ, I have to say that there is a temptation here...

I've written a surprising amount about Strawberry Shortcake here on THE ROCK FATHER Magazine over the years (18 articles by current count) - one of the timeless pop culture properties that I grew up on and played with alongside my sister, and now enjoy with The Rock Daughters™. My friends at Entertainment Earth have just sent over details on the first-ever scented Funko Pop! Vinyls, and they're appropriately from the world of Strawberry Shortcake & Friends, borrowing from the classic styling of the original characters from the 1980s. The first wave includes Strawberry Shortcake and Custard, Blueberry Muffin and Cheesecake, Orange Blossom and Marmalade and Lemon Meringue and Frappe. They're expected to ship this September. Check 'em out...
