Our recurring Cool Stuff feature is usually where you’ll find awesome memorabilia related to movies and TV . However, almost every single day, there is some kind of new action figure, playset, collectible, etc. that just doesn’t warrant a whole Cool Stuff post by itself. So we decided those items needed their own showcase.
The Toy Box is a new weekly feature at /Film that will round up some of the newest and coolest collectibles, decorations, gadgets and other memorabilia that you nerds might want for your shelves.
This week we have some new Funko releases for movies like Scott Pilgrim vs the World and Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, a handful of new Alien, Predator and Rocky figures, an update of a classic board game for all you Game of Thrones fans out there, and much more.
Hit the jump to see what’s in The Toy Box this week.
Scott Pilgrim vs the World and Ferris Bueller’s Day Off Funko POP Vinyls
Coming in June are two net sets of those adorable Funko Pop Vinyl figures. Scott Pilgrim vs the World gets a trio of figures including Scott Pilgrim with a drawing of that one girl who looks like this, Ramona Flowers and her cool goggles, and Knives Chau with the blue highlights that get punched out of her hair. This is a good start, but I think we need some evil exes to complete the set.
For Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, there are two versions of the title character on the way. For one, he’s sporting his signature leather jacket, but for the other, he’s traded in the jacket for a microphone to honor that iconic parade lip sync scene in downtown Chicago. And then there’s Cameron Frye in his trademark Red Wings jersey. However, for some reason there’s no figure for Ferris Bueller’s girlfriend Mia Sara. That seems like a missed opportunity.
Star Wars: The Force Awakens: Disney’s C-3PO and R2-D2 Elite Series Figures
The latest additions to Disney’s die cast Elite Series figure line have arrived, and they’re some very old friends. C-3PO and R2-D2 finally get their own Elite Series figures, but you’ll have to buy them individually. Each figure comes with a stand to display them, or since there’s window packaging, you can just leave them in the box.
Alien vs Predator: NECA’s Cloaked Scar Predator with Temple Hologram
If Predator is your thing, then you might be interested in this new San Diego Comic-Con 2016 exclusive from NECA. It’s the cloaked version of the Scar Predator from Alien vs Predator, and he has a hologram of the Temple. It sounds like the only way you’ll be able to get your hands on this one will be at SDCC this summer, or eBay sometime after, so hopefully you have your badge and/or check book ready for July.
Alien vs Predator: NECA’s Glow in the Dark, Thermal Vision Alien Warrior
To go along with the Cloaked Scar Predator with Temple Hologram, you can have the other side of the battle with this Glow-In-The-Dark Alien Warrior, a 9″ tall figure with over 30 points of articulation. The idea of the glow in the dark design is so it looks like the thermal vision the Predator sees in Alien vs Predator.
The figure will be a Toys R Us exclusive in North America available in September
