TRON Legacy LEGO Light Cycle

Over the years, there have been several awesome custom LEGO sets that have made it to the LEGO Ideas project approval stage, but many of them haven’t been approved by the board who decides which one becomes official LEGO sets. We’ve missed out on seeing possible sets for Shaun of the Dead, Jurassic Park and The Golden Girls come to fruition, but we’ve also been blessed with sets for Back to the Future, Ghostbusters and WALL-E. Now one more fantastic LEGO set that movie fans will love has been approved for production.

LEGO has officially approved a TRON Legacy inspired light cycle playset that will be released sometime next year. You can see what the custom design looked like in the approved LEGO Ideas submission below. Read More »

Stranger Things Season 2 Funko POP Figures

Hopefully you had some time to binge watch Stranger Things season two last weekend since everybody is having a problem waiting to talk about it online. We’re doing our best to hold off on diving deep into the new episodes until more people have had a chance to watch, but in the meantime, those who have already made it through the new season may be looking to get their hands on some collectibles from the Netflix series.

Funko has already released their first POP Vinyl figures from Stranger Things season 2, including Mike, Will, Dustin and Lucas all suited up in their Halloween costumes as Ghostbusters. Plus, we get a new version of Eleven, looking like a telekinetic Ripley from Aliens. Check out all the new Stranger Things season 2 Funko POP figures below, but beware of a very minor spoiler regarding one of the new characters on the show. Read More »

Darkwing Duck Action Figures

Funko has been churning out endless amounts of their POP Vinyl figures for pretty much every facet of pop culture, but they’ve also been expanding their toys and collectibles to less stylized action figures. For their latest endeavor, they’re reaching back into some of Disney’s most beloved animated shows from the 1990s.

In November, Funko will be releasing a series of action figures from DuckTales, Darkwing Duck, TalesSpin and Chip ‘n’ Dale’s Rescue Rangers as part of their new Disney Afternoon Collection. Check out the first figures in this collection below. Read More »

saga funko pops

Whenever someone new to comics asks me for a recommendation, a place to jump in and start reading, my go-to answer is Saga. Writer Brian K. Vaughan and artist Fiona Staples‘ science fiction epic is sweeping and romantic, violent and irreverent, hilarious and heartbreaking, diverse and frank, sexy and disgusting. Imagine Star Wars, but instead of opening with a Star Destroyer chasing down the Death Star plans, it opens with a lead character worried that she’s just crapped her pants while giving birth and her husband reassuring her that she did not. It’s magical.

And like anything with even the smallest foothold in popular culture, Saga is getting its own line of Funko Pop figures. And yes, they’re adorable.

LEGO Dimensions Discontinued

It goes without saying that /Film is not a video game site. But whenever there’s news regarding video games with ties to our favorite movies and TV shows, we think it’s worth reporting. That’s why we’re here with a disappointing update from The LEGO Group regarding their building block multiverse in the video game LEGO Dimensions.

After creating a video game that combined the worlds of Ghostbusters, Gremlins, Doctor Who, Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, Jurassic World, E.T. The Extra Terrestrial, The Simpsons, Back to the Future, Knight Rider and many more, The LEGO Group, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and TT Games have decided not to create anymore new expansion packs for the video game. Find out more below. Read More »

Guardians of the Galaxy - Stan Lee Funko POP

It’s hard to keep up with all the new Funko POP figures being released every month. There’s always a new movie or TV show getting a new line of the deformed but adorable collectible figures, and now one man will see multiple versions of himself turned into a new line of Funko POP figures from the Marvel Cinematic Universe

Marvel Comics creator Stan Lee has already been given several different iterations of Funko POP figures, but we’ve yet to see any of the cameo characters he plays in Marvel Studios movies brought to life. But that will change in November when three new Stan Lee Funko POP figures hit shelves. Check them out below. Read More »

Palpatine hologram

Rumors are stubborn things. The internet has made rumor a type of religion; something spread far and wide with staunch believers who refuse to accept anything but their own patented version of the truth. “It has to be true,” they might argue. “I saw it on the internet.” If there’s one film franchise the generates rumors left and right, it’s Star Wars.

With the production on the new films notoriously kept secret, the internet has no other recourse than to speculate wildly. They’ll take any source they can find and try to make it fit into a theory, even if that source just happens to be from something as innocuous a toy. Such wild speculation and rumor are now swirling around a hologram spotted within a LEGO First Order Star Destroyer set – a hologram purported to be of Emperor Palpatine. Does this hint at a return of a long-dead Star Wars character, or are we all getting excited over something with a much more germane answer? How true is this The Last Jedi Palpatine rumor? The only way for you to know for sure is to keep reading.

Porg merchandise

The Ewoks made their play for cutest creatures in the Star Wars galaxy in Return of the Jedi, but Star Wars: The Last Jedi will introduce a new species that gives the ferocious cub-like critters a run for their money. Porgs, the cuddly new penguin-esque creatures that are native to the island of Ahch-To, are the hot new shit in Star Wars-ville, and a cursory glance through social media shows that people are going nuts for these little things.

So here at /Film, we’ve taken on the Very Important Task of rounding up all of the porg-related merchandise that has emerged from Force Friday II, the day in which a ton of new Star Wars toys and products are unleashed upon the world. Wha–what’s that? Why, no, nothing else going on in the world right now could possibly be more crucial or relevant than this. I’m glad we agree on that!
