Two years ago, Funko produced a pretty extensive and well-rounded Guardians of the Galaxy POP Vinyls series, which I was honestly totally satisfied with… with one exception!

But no longer–the first Specialty Series Funko POP Vinyls Cosmo the Space Dog is now up for order! And he’s got an anthropomorphic friend accompanying him: Dorbz Howard the Duck!Continue Reading →

But the wait is over–the Amazon Exclusive 75th Anniversary Sepia Captain America POP Vinyl is now up for order!Continue Reading →

I used to find it virtually unthinkable that I would ever prefer any modern costume over Magento’s classic red and purple duds.

And now, as unlikely as it seemed, the Marvel NOW! white costume has been captured in statue form, and for just over 50 bucks the white Kotobukiya Magneto ARTFX+ Statue is now mine…Continue Reading →

It was a little bit of a head-scratcher when Hot Toys debuted the Hot Toys New Avengers Scarlet Witch from the closing seconds of Avengers Age of Ultron at Toy Soul 2015 alongside the upcoming Civil War figures. Since Wanda has a new costume in Captain America: Civil War, this version seemed like a really odd choice. Hot Toys must have decided this was a weird choice as well–because the Hot Toys Scarlet Witch New Avengers figure has now been announced as a limited exclusive!Continue Reading →
