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!

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!

Come join the most active babies you’ll find on tv with the just released Nicktoons Rugrats Funko POPs!
When i say active i mean active, these kids never stop and would no doubt be a nightmare for any parents. Though on the other hand they pretty much entertain themselves all day as the parents in the show are pretty much oblivious to their adventures, and they of course can’t understand the secret baby language. I’m not sure if it was different in the USA, but i know in the UK Rugrats was definitely one of the most, if not most popular Nicktoons show! The theme tune is very iconic, i’m sure you’d know it the moment you hear it. Wait a minute .. is there anyone out there who didn’t like Rugrats? Well feel free to say what you were watching as a kid.
I’ve placed a link at the bottom so you can see the concept art that was released earlier this year, a few things have changed since then. They have added 2 Chases in this line! That is pretty rare .. and i’m sure a nightmare for completionists, but both Chases are pretty fun. You have Tommy in his red top with his bottle instead of the screwdriver and also a Purple Reptar, and no he isn’t a 6″ POP sadly. The other thing they added was a Chuckie Pocket POP, not sure why they chose Chuckie in particular! But i’m definitely sensing future Rugrats, Phil and Lil 2 pack anyone? Glam shots and info coming up!

Still upset about the destruction of Hidden Leaf Village, oh no i mean .. Hidden Leaf is just fine! Maybe these Naruto Funko Dorbz will help!
Earlier in the year we saw the concept art that Funko released for this line, but that only included the basic POPs. You can click here to see that article, with this announcement we now get to see the full glam shots! Included the Chase figure that they have added, which is of a glowing Naruto and yes he does glow in the dark. As far as i know this seems to be of the Nine-Tails Chakra Mode, though feel free to correct me if i’m wrong as i’m certainly not an expert on Naruto considering i’ve never seen it. But it’s on the list so don’t worry, the long long list of things to watch that we all have somewhere! You can be sure this won’t be the last of this line, i’m guessing they will add Sasuke and Kakashi at least! Maybe even some exclusives? We’ll have to wait and see. Glam shots and info coming up!
Update: A commenter mentioned that HT Nerdette confirmed there would be a Hot Topic Exclusive Naruto Dorbz, which would also mean they will be limited! We’ll have to wait and see which character this Dorbz will be.

Simpsons reference aside go back in time with some classic figures with the upcoming Planet of the Apes Funko Dorbz!
You may be forgiven for thinking of the new Planet of the Apes film that’s coming out soon (War for the Planet of the Apes) which is the 3rd in that series surprisingly, i enjoyed the first two but i didn’t know it would span 3 films. Regardless these Dorbz are based on the original Planet of the Apes film that was released back in 1968, yes it was really that long ago! And what’s this, no Dr. Zaius? Well that is surprising, perhaps they will release him as an exclusive, we’ll have to wait and see.
I don’t think they did the best job differentiating between Cornelius and Zira, if you inspect their Dorbz figures you may notice they are hard to even tell apart. They could of perhaps done with a little extra touches or accessories to help in that situation, what are your thoughts? On the same note Zira is the second in the no doubt long line of limited Dorbz, these are Dorbz that just have a general limit across all stores rather than an exclusive limit like Hot Topics. I don’t think it’s the most amazing figure, but placing that sticker on it makes it sell out fast so grab her if you want her. Glam shots and info coming up!

Welcome in some more of your wrestling favorites with the now released WWE Wave 3 Funko POPs!
And where would a new line up of POPs be without the mandatory Chases and Exclusives? Well nowhere of course. It seems for this round they have chosen Finn Balor to take both the Chase and the Exclusive, some variance would be good but i have to admit the Finn Balor figures do look pretty awesome. I mean i’m not really into wrestling as a whole, but i will probably grab him. When i first revealed the POP of Goldberg i was asking people to guess who he was, and a couple of people guessed Gillberg! That’s hm .. kind of close?
I do have a slight fondness for the Mick Foley POP, he was first announced by his daughter (Noelle Foley). He seems like a really nice person, and his daughter strangely enough collector POPs! I watched a few videos on her new YouTube channel, she’s a bit wacky but clearly a big Funko fan. I’ve left a link below for the FYE exclusive as he’s on sale now, the link takes you to the article with all the info you need to grab him if you so wish. Glam shots and info coming up!

Elektra and Punisher join your favorite hero of Hells Kitchen with the now released Daredevil Wave 2 Funko POPs!
I’m sure you’ve seen plenty of these guys, well Punisher especially. Though these days anything that has a Chase variant is really at the forefront of any news, people were only talking about Punisher. Really that’s only for two reason, you firstly have people who are trying to grab any Chase they can to re-sell for a profit, and secondly you have those who want the figure and want to avoid having to resort to eBay. Chases can cause some adverse reactions in some collectors, there has been stories recently of people fighting over and destroying Chases if they can’t have them for themselves so as you can imagine there’s a few issues there.
Regardless this line of POPs is one of my favorite in recent times, there are so many generic lines of POPs is good when you have a whole line that has interesting colors, features and accessories. From the three Elektra is probably my favorite of the line, though i do have a preference for female POPs so there’s some bias there! Daredevils outfit is awesome though, from remembering the series Elektra wasn’t wearing her outfit throughout much of the show but she would be a bit generic without it. One comment that has been made about the Punisher Chase is that the Daredevil helmet he’s holding is way too small, i’m sure you might notice POP heads are quite a bit bigger than usual! Glam shots and info coming up!

Come and join the hype train and get your hands on the upcoming Valerian Funko POPs!
Well if you haven’t seen poster after trailer after advert for this film, then count yourself lucky! To say there’s a hype train around this film is an understatement, from what i’ve seen it could be interesting. At least the source material has a lot of merit, but i’m sure you know by now you can’t tell anything from a trailer. The trailer is .. very basic, all it does is just tick all the cliche boxes for a hyped up movie. Has anyone here read the source material? Feel free to comment! Or just in general if you have opinions on this movie. I’ll most definitely be seeing it, it’s a very colorful and vast science fiction world which looks very promising. It also has Cara Delevingne playing Laureline who i’m fond of, i thought she was awesome as the Enchantress in Suicide Squad.
As for the POPs, well it’s an interesting selection. I’ll definitely be getting Laureline as she seems pretty cool, i like the hair they did on her .. i wonder how it will look in person. Aside from that we have a first in the Funko world, 2 chases for a POP. Yes you heard that right, they both have a 1 in 6 chance so .. in every box of 6 Doghan there will be 4 commons and 2 Chases. I’m not sure what the reasoning is, perhaps he’s cute (comedic relief) in the film and they’re making him the mascot similar to Niffler from Fantasic Beasts? We’ll have to wait and see about any exclusives closer to the date, i’m hoping to see variants of the main characters in some more interesting and animated poses. Glam shots and info coming up!

Does one simply walk into Mordor? Probably not, but you may get a little further with these guys by your side, it is the Lord of the Rings Funko POPs of course!
It’s very exciting news that we’re finally getting some more Lord of the Rings POPs, i mean the only one that existed before these was Sauron. Why out of the 3 films did they just do Sauron? I have no idea, they did a few more for the Hobbit line but even that was a long time ago. As a big LOTR fan it’s a great thing to see, i’ll probably be trying to grab all of these! What about you? Are they missing any of your favorite characters, i wonder. We first showed the concept art of these as part of the London Toy Fair back in early February (which you can see by clicking here), if you saw that article you may be thinking two are missing. You would be right in that! The Twilight Wringwraith and Invisible Frodo are both now exclusives, so we will post info about those soon!
I’ve said so before but my favorite from this line up definitely has to be the 6″ Balrog figure, what do you think? He’s just an awesome character with some great detail. They also modeled Gandalf after that classic scene, so if you get both you can re-create it! The Chase in this instance is of Frodo after he gets stabbed by the Morgul blade, his eyes and skin changes as he goes into the Wraith world. Another must have i think. The last two items are the Pocket POP Keychains of Frodo and Gandalf (which haven’t really changed since the original preview), Frodo is the same as the POP mold but it seems from the shot that Gandalf is holding is weapons slightly differently. Glam shots and info coming up!
