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 »

Chip-Dale-Rescue-Rangers

Disney’s getting into shape to compete with film franchises featuring pint-sized protagonists like the Smurfs and Alvin and the Chipmunks, with a live-action/CG hybrid film featuring the studio’s own animated chipmunks Chip ‘n Dale. Commercial director Robert Rugan pitched a story to Disney and the studio went for his “updated take” on the characters, per THR. The film will be based on the Chip ’n Dale Rescue Rangers show that saw the chipmunks acting as private detectives in the service of other animal clients.

In addition to a whole slate of commercial work, Rugan did the ‘Wiley vs Rhodes’ short, which may be the best indicator of his ability to do a hybrid comedy such as this. Check that out below. Read More »
