Everyone needs a faithful companion, and Perseus really lucked out in Clash of the Titans when Athena refused Zeus’s request to send the hero her own pet owl, instead offering a brass-and-iron version of Bubo she had Hephaestus construct.
With the phenomenal success of Netflix’s Squid Game, it was only a short matter of time until the inevitable tidal wave of merchandise hit shores. Well, now it’s here, and Funko is releasing six characters from the series in their Funko Pop!
Prolific designer toymaker Fools Paradise is releasing a beastly figure that sees a rugby player wearing parts of the RX-78-2 Gundam as protective gear. The figure is called Lowfool Steel of League Team 01-GD. Yep, the toymakers are saying it’s for a robot rugby league, despite the face mask.
I never thought that someone would be a hardcore fan of Jabba the Hutt, but once again I’ve been reminded that there are all kinds of people in this world. Toy designer and maker Mighty Jabba not only has various collectibles of the Star Wars mob boss, but he also painstakingly designed, printed, and sculpted an anatomical figure of the menacing slug.
Love collecting figures of superheroes? Well, this one’s practically all of ’em for the price – and space – of one. From Good Smile Company’s Pop Up Parade line comes The Traveler, the main character of one of my favorite video games of all time, Journey.
There’s little question that Baby Yoda (aka “The Child”) is the most adorable character in the history of the entire Star Wars universe. This little dude walked on the scene, took one look at all of the ewoks, porgs, and roller-droids, and said “hold my beer.”
I don’t always understand Japan and the things they find cool over there. I don’t exactly understand these either, but I think these Gudetama World Tour figures are very cool. They feature Sanrio character Gudetama – a lazy egg basking in one sort of dish or another from around the world.
Fans of the HBO series Game of Thrones who need to get their hands on some collectibles to show the world their fandom will want to check these Funko Dorbz action figures. They 3″ tall figures all have disproportionately big heads, stout little bodies, and skinny slits in place of eyes.
Growing up one of my favorite Saturday morning cartoons was Looney Toons. I had a special place for Daffy Duck and his alter ego Duck Dodgers. Now we can celebrate the classic cartoon with a series of POP!
The only things that Pokémon and Gundam really have in common are that they both come from Japan. At least that is all they had in common until Imgur user Khrisamisu was inspired to create these Pokémon models in Gundam style.
I am a big fan of The Big Bang Theory. I refuse to watch the show out of sequence though; I want to watch all the episodes in order. That means I am a few seasons behind because I am too cheap to buy the box set and keep waiting for Netflix to hook me up.
The Simpsons recently aired their LEGO themed episode and to celebrate, Chicago animator David Pickett has created a video tutorial that will teach you how to make the Simpsons family out of LEGO bricks.
Simpsons fans will be happy with this news. LEGO just announced this line of LEGO Simpsons minifigs which will release on May 4th to coincide with a special Simpsons LEGO episode on FOX.
They are $4 each.
So what else can we geeks spend our dough on? How about this fantastic line of vinyl figures from Funko? These Star Trek original series characters look adorable and you can choose from Spock, Kirk, Andorian, Scotty, an Orion Slave Girl or a Klingon.
