funko star wars

Funko’s quest to suck all the money from our collective wallets continues apace with the newly announced Star Wars POP! vinyl bobbles. Luke, Leia in Bouush disguise, a TIE pilot, and Both Nalan Cheel are all adorable, but the Bib Fortuna is so cute I’m gonna die.

Well, this is cool. Entertainment Earth has announced a new exclusive Guardians of the Galaxy Marvel Legends 6-inch figure box set.

Not only does this set contain the first-ever comic book version of Groot, it also has Drax the Destroyer, Gamora, Star-Lord, Rocket Raccoon and Baby Groot in a Pot. Not surprisingly, Baby Groot is my personal fave.

But the best part is that you can get $20 off plus free shipping (in the US) on the set when you use the code “MARVEL 20″ during checkout. The offer is good on new orders until May 15th 2015.

downton wars

Rob James-Collier, who plays Thomas Barrow on Downton Abbey, set out to raise £10,000 to help the Chilterns MS Centre. In order to do that, he released a fairly awesome video called Downton Wars: Episode 1 – The Phantom Valet in which his “Evil Butler” faces off against the “Phantom Valet” John Cates (Brendan Coyle).

The Downton/Star Wars mashup was so well received that Collier has hit his goal and plans to create Downton Wars: Episode 2 – The Evil Butler Strikes Back!

Maybe if we all donate to the charity on his website, we can get an entire series! I’d be down for that.

Watch Episode One after the break.

dino trivia

Noah Ritter, who became famous for his repeated and hilarious use of the word “apparently”, has become a bit of a regular on The Ellen Show. In fact, that’s where he recently destroyed Chris Pratt in a game of dinosaur trivia.

Sideshow Collectibles and Hot Toys have debuted the Ultron Mark I Sixth Scale Collectible Figure and, man, is it pretty in a totally messed up way.

This figure has 24 points of articulation, a newly developed asymmetrical body with an insane level of exposed mechanical details and cable wires, LED light-up eyes, mouth, and chest reactor, and comes with a damaged Iron Legion and specially designed figure stand.

DC Super Hero Girls

Good news for fans that have been frustrated with the state of female superheroes in movies and TV. DC and Warner Bros. have announced the new “DC Super Hero Girls” initiative targeted to an audience of girls ages 6-12. It’s going to include everything from TV specials to toys with a focus on the early years of favorite female DC characters like like Wonder Woman, Batgirl and Harley Quinn.

The call for more female superhero representation in toy lines and entertainment has been growing and this is a way for girls to feel like they’re included in a genre that, for the most part, caters to boys.

I mean, I’d rather there wasn’t a need to divide these things along gender lines. For many female fans, the products made “for boys” are just fine. However, this product line could help other girls jump in who wouldn’t have otherwise.

So kudos to you DC and Warner Bros. I’m impressed.

Check out the full press release after the break.

R2ME248235

The R2-ME2 project is a fantastic look at what happens when talented artists are officially encouraged to kitbash a figure. In this case, a blank prototype of the Sideshow Collectibles Deluxe R2-D2 Sixth Scale Figure. Over 90 artists friends and fans participated, and the results were on display at Star Wars Celebration. I had a chance to check them out and it’s really amazing to see what they came up with.

The Star Wars Battlefront game panel is happening at Star Wars Celebration and the new trailer just dropped. It’s frickin’ gorgeous, though the trailer doesn’t contain any actual gameplay.

Still, I’m definitely planning to pick it up when it goes on sale November 17th on PS4, PC and Xbox One.

Check it out after the break.

Star Wars Celebration is coming up this weekend and, thanks to this awesome announcement from StarWars.com, you can attend without having to make the trip to Anaheim.

The event will be live streamed on StarWars.com and will include all of the exclusive content—including whatever comes up in the Force Awakens panel with J.J. Abrams.

As someone who’s going to be at Celebration, I think this is so cool. Not only can the fans see what’s going on at the show, but there will be coverage of events I may miss.

See the full details after the break.
