Dead Men. Pirates of the Caribbean Funko POPs! Coming June!

Will this be Captain Jack’s last outing? Reminisce about the latest trip on the little boat with the upcoming Pirates of the Caribbean Funko POPs!

Let your hair down like Captain Salazar did after his curse and take a load off, definitely one of the cooler POPs we’ve seen. But what’s this, some kind of controversy? Yes some have been commenting their disbelief over the choice of Chase for this line, quoting that the “Cursed” state is his regular appearance. I guess i can kind of see where they are coming from, a Chase is normally an alternative design whereas the Chase here is what he looks like for the majority of the film. What are your thoughts?

One thing you should take note of is that no the real Golden Jack Sparrow POP isn’t THAT shiny, glam shots always make them look better than they really do. You can click here to see my article about that POP, as of writing this he is still on sale! I’m glad that they’re bringing Will Turner back, he was a very likable character in the original films. I  also would like some up to date POPs of Penelope Cruz and Keira Knightly’s characters for sure, though they have nothing to do with this film but here’s hoping. Glam shots and info coming up!

Path to Paradise. Alien Covenant Funko POPs! Coming June!

We’re going back into space for some more melt your face alien action with the upcoming Alien Covenant Funko POPs!

Just released in the cinema last week, the sequel to the 2012 hit Prometheus. Well .. i say hit, it did very well but there were quite a few critics. Regardless of a few bad reviews know i personally really enjoyed it, at the time i didn’t think they would make a sequel. But here we are 5 years later and it’s here! Now even with the word “Alien” in the title, because it is of course a prequel to the Alien films way before the time of Ellen Ripley. But don’t worry if you’re a Ripley fan, know Funko has you covered there too with an awesome Ripley Rock Candy that’s coming soon.

Keeping with the female protagonist theme from the original Alien films, Katherine Waterston is our leading lady here. And if you’ve seen the film you’ll know they took a lot of cues from Ripley here, just check out this image and you’ll see the similarities straight away (Click me)! The main two POPs in this line aren’t really exciting me, they’re fairly generic i’ll definitely have to see the film first before deciding to buy those. But i am liking the face hugger POP! Who doesn’t want a cute face hugging friend in their family? Feel free to comment with any and all opinions you have. Glam shots and info coming up!

Science Makes Sense. Rick and Morty Funko POPs! Out Now!

We all know family doesn’t make sense, but perhaps we can get somewhat closer to that with the Rick and Morty Funko POPs!

I’m sure if you’re a big Rick & Morty fan you’ve already been on the hunt for these POPs, along with the 2 Chases in this line. Every time i see more things about Rick & Morty i think hm .. maybe i should actually watch this show, i mean it could be amazing for all i know. What do you think? It certainly seems to be intensely popular, when following every kind of Funko POP that gets released you get exposed to a lot of things you wouldn’t normally see i suppose.

One of the first Chase figures in the line is Weaponized Rick, from what i know this has been criticized because they haven’t changed anything about the POP except for his mouth. I can understand where they’re coming from, though also there’s the fact that you don’t need both figures and if you get the Chase it’s just a bonus i suppose! The second Chase has much more of a variance, Mr. Meeseeks with gun has a different face, accessories, pose and skin tone. Speaking of faces i’m sure they may seem natural, but it’s very unusual for POPs to have mouths but i can definitely agree it’s necessary in some cases. Some POPs just are downright spooky with their blank expressions, so i’m liking what they did here. Glam shots and info coming up!

Wise as Athena. Exclusive Wonder Woman Funko POPs! Out Now!

Enter the world of Power, Grace, Wisdom and Wonder with the now released Exclusive Wonder Woman Funko POPs!

I’m sure like many you’re excited about the upcoming release of the newest addition to the DC Universe (me included), it is of course Wonder Woman! Coming to a screen near you on June the 2nd if you’re in the US, though if you live elsewhere in the world you may have already seen it. Early impressions seem to be quite good, though the Shanghai and eastern market do have quite different tastes so we will see! Also it just so happens that it is releasing on my birthday, perhaps i will be there on release day or .. maybe i will wait for a less crowded day which is usually best.

We have links at the end of the article if you want to see the regular non exclusive POPs and Rock Candy, but this article will fill you in on every exclusive that has been or will be released. Including the Legion of Collectors Box! So don’t continue if you haven’t received or opened yours yet (though you should have by now!). Each figure below i have linked either to the product page, or the article here detailing all the info and links you need to buy them. The majority still have plenty in stock! Though some pre-orders have sold out such as the Entertainment Earth one, but that will be everywhere after release so don’t worry.

What is your favorite from the line? I wonder. For me it’s hard to say, i do love her in her full armor and especially the Rock Candy which would usually win it for me. But i have to pick the GameStop exclusive Diana in her blue dress which is a gorgeous POP that i already own luckily, it’s very striking and i can say the same for Gal Gadot in that section of the film! Glam shots and info coming up!

Upside Down. Stranger Things Funko Pocket POPs! Coming June!

Prepare for season two of the surprise hit Netflix show with these upcoming Stranger Things Funko Pocket POPs!

Are you a fan of the show? Well probably .. it seems most people are. Though feel free to comment regardless, i’m sure there’s someone who isn’t a huge fan out there somewhere! It’s not too long now until Season 2 is out, this year they’re releasing it on October the 31st. What’s that .. on Halloween? Oh my very spooky, surely just a coincidence. No doubt closer to the time there will be plenty of advertisements coming out linking it with the trick or treating holiday, i think if i remember correctly they are wearing costumes in the trailer too.

That’s not all that’s coming out, Funko is planning on releasing wave 2 of the Stranger Things Funko POPs as well though that’s information for another day. Here we’re talking about the Pocket POPs, these are all from wave 1 and just smaller version of the POPs so nothing new to see here. One thing of note is that Hot Topic does have an exclusive of Eleven with her wig on, feel free to click the link below to learn all about that one! Glam shots and info coming up!

Little Black Book. Death Note Funko POPs! Coming May!

See if you have the wits to come up against L with the upcoming Death Note Funko POPs!

Another Manga to Anime adaption that has become quite the hit in the USA, and pretty much everywhere to be honest. I haven’t personally read the Manga but i have seen the live action films and the Anime, also if you didn’t know Netflix are releasing a film adaption of Death Note later this year. It will be interesting to see how it does, but there are already many who are criticizing the trailers and the casting choices. We first saw concept art of these figures back in the London Toy Fair (Click here to see), and nothing much has changed between the concept work and glam shots. But they did add an exclusive, L with Cake at Hot Topic. This particular exclusive is already out! Even though the regular ones aren’t yet, my favorite of the line is probably Ryuk although .. i would of preferred they make him 6″ as he’s definitely not the same height as Yagami. Glam shots and info coming up!
