Funko's Pop! Rocks line has been a favorite of mine this past year, and in 2019 we already have an idea of where things are headed. This week, Funko announced their first-ever AC/DC Pop! Vinyl Figure that presents the band's iconic guitarist, Angus Young, ready to rock in his signature schoolboy uniform. Available for pre-order via my friends at Entertainment Earth, the standard figure features a black suit, while randomly-packed Chase editions feature a blue suit with devil horns and an "A" on the hat. Get yours today!
It's been a fan-requested item for years, but now it's finally happened - the DC Multiverse Lynda Carter Signature Edition Action Figure has hit the streets, just in-time for the holidays! In-stock through my partners at Entertainment Earth as of this writing, this new 6" action figure is based on the Wonder Woman TV Series that originally aired from 1975-79.
Jem and the Holograms is a legendary property that still has yet to see a truly proper relaunch. The live-action film wasn't right, and while Hasbro has licensed it out for high-end dolls and a pretty cool comic from IDW Publishing, it still feels like there's a lot of untapped potential to be had. Now Funko is testing the waters with a pair of Pop! Vinyl figures that represent one of the greatest rivalries in the history of animated bands. Jem will be available soon along with Pizzazz Gabor of The Misfits, and both of these figures are available for pre-order now via my affiliates at Entertainment Earth!
To celebrate the 50th anniversary of the The Beatles' groundbreaking animated film, Yellow Submarine Titan Merchandising has issued an incredible Beatles Yellow Submarine Limited Edition Box Set. Limited to only 1,968 pieces, the lavishly illustrated box contains a Yellow Submarine novel by Mad Magazine's Bill Morrison, a 6 1/2-inch Yellow Submarine vinyl figure, 16 lobby cards, 4 movie posters based on the originals, 5 Beatles badges, a replica Yellow Submarine film premier ticket, and an exclusive art card signed by Bill Morrison! It's available now for pre-order at Entertainment Earth!
As the end of 2018 draws near, we're just three months out from the theatrical launch of Marvel Studios' CAPTAIN MARVEL - a film with a lot riding on it when it comes to the future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Of course that also means a bunch of new toys and collectibles, and the folks at Funko are right out in front with the announcement of a full range of Pop! Vinyl Figures, Pocket Pop! Keychains, Pens and Dorbz. As always, it's the core Pop! Vinyls that will be the most sought-after, and for Captain Marvel that's gonna me a lot of running around for completists. From a consumer standpoint, I'm not a big fan of exclusives, though retailers use them to draw the crowds. For Captain Marvel, that means keeping an eye out at mass retailers, specialty shops like Entertainment Earth and hunting down variants at GameStop, FYE, Walmart, Target, Boxlunch and Hot Topic to collect them all!
You may have an Optimus or a Megatron toy somewhere, but you need these new ones. Trust us. The Transformers Generations Siege Voyager Wave 1 Case does not disappoint! From Hasbro, both leaders are covered in battle-damage, include 2 weapons each, and have an exceptional range of articulation in their highly detailed robot modes. The Cybertronian vehicles look a little bit like some previous Earth forms but are different enough to be a lot of fun. Optimus and Megatron borrow heavily from classic toy and TV appearances, giving you what may be two of the most amazing figures yet. And they can power up with other smaller Siege Battle Masters, Weaponizers, and Micromasters (sold separately)! Don’t delay – pre-order from Entertainment Earth and transport them to your area via space bridge today!
