Over two years ago, we featured a LEGO Ideas project that recreated the combining super robot Voltron in building block form. The project got enough votes to be considered by the official LEGO Group for production as an official playset, and fans will soon be able to get their hands on the robot formed by five smaller lion robots.
Voltron: Legendary Defender has proven to be a popular series from Netlfix and DreamWorks Animation, making the official Voltron LEGO set a no-brainer to produce for fans of the mecha animated series. But this Voltron LEGO set is based on the original 1984 animated series, making it a must-have for those nostalgic fans out there. Check out the Voltron LEGO set below. Read More »

The figure had James Wan’s signature pink streaked hair, but now he’s no longer the coolest Funko POP on the block.
Thor: Ragnarok director Taika Waititi, who has also brought us the phenomenal films Eagle vs Shark, Boy, What We Do in the Shadows and Hunt for the Wilderpeople, is the latest to get his own Funko POP! as an exclusive at San Diego Comic-Con. And as you can see, he’s dress in his signature, godlike pineapple short and shirt set. Read More »

Now, one more has been added to the mix.
James Wan is best known for directing or producing horror movies like Saw, The Conjuring, Annabelle, Insidious and this year’s The Nun, not to mention the action extravaganza that is Furious 7.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles were all the rage when I was a kid. Not only was there the live-action film adaptation from 1990 that I could rewatch on VHS every day, but there was an animated series that I could watch when there were still cartoons playing all over the place every Saturday morning. And while there were plenty of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles action figures that I collected over the years, I was always disappointed that none of them looked like how the turtles appeared in the movies. If you felt the same way, the good news is we don’t have to feel that disappointment anymore.
NECA has announced another one of their San Diego Comic-Con exclusives, and it’s a four-pack of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, sculpted and styled exactly how they appeared in the 1990s live-action movie. They even come inside of a package that looks like the original VHS slip case for the video tape. These might be the best Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie action figures ever made. Read More »

LEGO has really hit their stride over the past decade when it comes to making incredible building block sets that are cleverly designed. That’s especially true when it comes to bringing characters, vehicles and settings from our favorite movies to life. They’ve gotten some help from LEGO Ideas with the likes of the Ghostbusters Ecto-1 and the DeLorean time machine from Back to the Future. Now they have their own creations for these franchises and more that you can now build and collect yourself.
Rather than stick with the traditional LEGO sets, the building block company has a more recent BrickHeadz line that has taken off. They’re stylized versions of characters from movies, TV and comics that you build with LEGO pieces and can display on your shelf. Think of them as the Funko POP versions of LEGO characters. And recently, they’ve delivered some new editions for Ghostbusters, The Incredibles, Jurassic World, Back to the Future, Harry Potter and more. Read More »
Fans are undoubtedly excited about Pixar’s long-awaited sequel Incredibles 2. It’s been 14 years since the original film hits theaters, and box office projections have the superhero family raking in somewhere around $110 million. With another month and a half of marketing to go, there’s a good chance that number could rise. That means a lot of people will be seeing another one of Pixar’s delightful projects.
As is tradition, Pixar will have a new animated short attached to Incredibles 2. The short this time is titled Bao, and we’ve already gotten a look at the movie about an empty-nesting Chinese mom who gets another chance at motherhood when one of her dumplings springs to life. We’ve seen what that adorable dumpling looks like in a clip that debuted not too long ago, and Funko has made it so you’ll be able to bring that cute little dumpling baby home with you too.
