funko alien set

Well, I’m going to call this retro 70′s Alien Egg Chamber playset by Funko and Super7 the must-have SDCC Exclusive of this year’s Comic-Con (at this point anyway).

Limited to 250 pieces total and costing $100 bucks, I suspect that people are going to be willing to kill to get to the booth to pick one up the first day. From Super7′s Facebook page:

Look kids! Now you can relive the excitement of the Nostromo Crew’s journey into the Derelict Alien Spaceship! Venture with Kane deep into the mysterious Egg Chamber ReAction Playset and pose your sturdy ReAction Figures on the detailed, egg-covered base. Inspired by the playsets of the 1970’s and packaged in an era appropriate photo box, the playset provides the perfect backdrop for all of your ReAction Adventures. The playset comes complete with classically styled action base made from durable hand-cast resin and corrugated cardboard, full-color Alien Egg Silo backdrop that slides into the base for display.

Well played, guys. Well played.

Funko Wampa

The time for companies to announce their exclusive offerings for San Diego Comic-Con is nigh, and Funko’s pulling out all the stops. They’re bringing an armless wampa to the convention! Don’t worry though, it’s in toy form and probably completely harmless. The wampa also comes with a bloodied Luke Skywalker, and the packaging is kind of my favorite. This is one instance where I might not unbox the toys. If you can’t make it to Comic-Con, keep an eye on eBay because the exclusive will surely appear there during the convention.

dragon ball z funko 1

I’m becoming more and more convinced that Funko is planning to take over the universe with their Pop! line. It keeps expanding, and the figures are so cute that we won’t mind. Their latest additions include five characters from Dragon Ball Z. As you would expect, they look absolutely huggable. The line-up includes Piccolo, Perfect Cell, Frieza, Vegeta, and Super Saiyan Goku.

Pre-order now to receive the anime figures in September!

Check out the rest of the series after the break.

Buffy pop 1

Ready to fight vampires and other monsters in the cutest way possible? Funko’s here to help with a new line of precious Pop! vinyl figures featuring the Scooby Gang from Buffy the Vampire Slayer. The series includes Buffy, Oz, Willow, Angel, the creepy Gentlemen, and two versions of Spike. As usual, Willow has my favorite outfit. I hope they continue the series so we can see characters like Xander and Giles!

You can pre-order the toys now for a September ship date.

frozen funko pop elsa

It’s time to cool down with Funko’s latest line of Pop! figures. That’s right, Frozen toys are coming! Merchandise from the popular animated film has been flying off shelves to the point that Disney stores have limits for their customers, and I have no doubt these precious designs from Funko will sell like crazy. Funko’s Frozen series includes Elsa, Anna, Kristoff, Olaf, and Sven.

They’ll be available in July, and the timing makes me wonder whether they’ll debut at Comic-Con. We’ll see! Wherever they show up first, I’ll be buying one of each. In the meantime, the figures are currently available for pre-order at $9.99 each.

breaking bad funko 1

Breaking Bad is so popular that it was only a matter of time before Funko put their eyes on the blue crystal prize. They’ve just announced a series of ten Pop! vinyl figures featuring a few versions of Walter White, Jesse Pinkman, Gus Fring, Saul Goodman, and more. They’re still waiting on final licensor approval, but the toys will most likely look like the cute versions you see here.

You’ll be able to buy the Breaking Bad Pop! series in July at Entertainment Earth, Barnes & Noble, and Hot Topic.

disney mystery minis 1

Funko is making so many fun and cute products that I may as well just sign over my paychecks to them. I didn’t think they could top the Pop! series, but they’re killing it with the Mystery Minis. The latest round of the tiny blind box figures are ridiculous in the best way. There are 12 characters including Simba, Belle, the Beast, Wreck-It Ralph, and others. The petite scale means you can fit more of the figures on your shelf, so that means I can buy one of each, right? Right.

magic figures 1

It seems hard to believe, but official Magic: The Gathering action figures haven’t been released in over ten years. Hasbro had the license at one point, but now Funko has the reins. They’ve already teased their line of 6-inch figures along with Pop! versions of the Planeswalker characters, but this is the first close look we’ve got at the packaging and the individual toys. The series of action figures includes Jace Beleren, Garruk Wildspeaker, Chandra Nalaar, Liliana Vess, Ajani Goldmane and Nissa Revane. They look cool, and I’d want them on my shelf whether I played the game or not.

Pre-order the figures now for a scheduled ship date of August.

GoG mystery minis

Just when you thought your list of Guardians of the Galaxy toys to buy was long, you need to add 12 more tiny figures. Funko has shrunk the Guardians and the villains for their Mystery Minis, and they’ve managed to make Rocket Raccoon and Groot even more charming. I didn’t know that was possible. The Mystery Minis blind boxes will be available in stores (and probably eBay) in July, but you can pre-order now.

tmnt toys 1

Need some more Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles toys in your life? Come July, Funko has your pizza-eating hero needs covered with a new set of Mystery Minis and Pop! figures. The miniatures are precious. The blind boxes contain the turtles, April O’Neil, Shredder, Splinter, Bebop, and Rocksteady and more. All of the designs are so fun that I’d consider buying the full set on eBay.

In their Pop! format, Funko is releasing April, Bebop, Rocksteady, and a Foot Soldier. Bonus points if you buy all these and make a manhole cover display for them.
