While you won't find me at New York Comic-Con (NYCC) this weekend, you can certainly find some awesome toys and collectibles being offered by my friends at Funko and Entertainment Earth. One very much-anticipated item is the Funko / Entertainment Earth Convention Exclusive Classic Spider-Woman Pop! Vinyl Figure. First announced on the official Funko blog last month, Spider-Woman joins the Funko family TODAY and is available in super-limited quantities only at Funko's booth at New York Comic-Con or online through Entertainment Earth! These are in the EE warehouse and ready to ship next week, and although I'm not at NYCC, somehow Spider-Woman made her way to me. Check out this first hands-on look!
The Battle Royale just saw another major player drop from the bus, with Funko unleashing a huge assortment of their much-anticipated FORTNITE Pop! Vinyl Figures! Created in collaboration with Epic Games, these colorful characters arrive just in time for the holiday season, making them a perfect gift for the gamer or collector on your shopping list. My friends at Entertainment Earth (affiliate) just opened pre-orders for a full range of figures, each of which is listed below. Put them on a shelf or use them to act-out real-life battles on your desk or floor, just avoid the storm!
Let's make something very clear right now: DIE HARD is a Christmas movie. Same goes for its first sequel, DIE HARD 2: DIE HARDER. There is no debate, period. With that in mind, it's exciting that Funko and 20th Century Fox have teamed-up for a new collection of Pop! Vinyl figures. Available for pre-order via my affiliates, Entertainment Earth and GameStop, there's John McClane (Bruce Willis), Hans Gruber (Alan Rickman), Sgt. Al Powell (Reginald VelJohnson) and Tony Vreski (Andreas Wisniewski), along with a GameStop-exclusive version of Hans rockin' his long coat. A pick for my 2018 Holiday Wish Guide, these figures would make the perfect gift for the action lover on your list. Now can we get Argyle and Ellis? If you want these, you better pre-order them now!
Disney's The Nutcracker and the Four Realms is coming to theaters this November, and thanks to the folks at Funko, some characters from the new version of the classic tale are coming to the famed Pop! Vinyl format. Hitting stores just in time for the 2018 holiday season, the Sugar Plum Fairy and Clara are up for pre-order now via my friends at Entertainment Earth. Check out the latest trailer for The Nutcracker below...
This November, Dr. Seuss' The Grinch is back on the big screen in an all-new animated adventure from Universal Studios and Illumination. Of course, what's a movie without some cool merch, right? There's toys on the way from Just Play, and Funko is in on the action as well with a host of Pop! Vinyl figures based on characters from the film. There's The Grinch, the Young Grinch, Cindy-Lou Who and Max the Dog - all available for pre-order via my friends at Entertainment Earth. Of course, we can't just do standard... there's plenty of retailer variants as well.
I may have mentioned this in passing before, but this fall will see the release of an all-new wave of Holiday Funko Pop! Vinyl figures... and yes, more Star Wars is in the mix. Of course these are technically bobbleheads (thanks to licensing) but cool just the same. There's festive new versions of Chewbacca, R2-D2, C-3PO, Darth Vader (there's a Chase version as well) and Yoda. All of these new figures are up for pre-order via my friends at Entertainment Earth. I see them as new-school holiday decor, and early additions to my 2018 Holiday Wish Guide here at The Rock Father™ Magazine.
