Since the characters of Caddyshack have already been given the Funko POPs treatment, it’s time for the other movies in the “slobs vs snobs” subgenre of comedies to get their due. Thankfully, Funko will keep them coming with new collectible vinyl figures dedicated to the military comedy Stripes directed by and starring the late Harold Ramis, as well as the John Landis-directed fraternity comedy that the Ghostbusters star penned, National Lampoon’s Animal House. Check out the Stripes and Animal House Funko POPs below. Read More »
What I love most about the ever-growing line of Funko POPs arriving pretty much every single month is that they’re willing to give us collectible figures from movies and TV shows that would otherwise never get action figures. Step Brothers, Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, Tommy Boy, Big, Billy Madison, The Sandlot, The Big Lebowski, The Shining and more have been given the Funko POP treatment, and now one of Disney’s most beloved sports franchises will join them.
The Mighty Ducks is one of the best live-action movies Disney has ever released, and Funko POP is finally giving part of the team formerly known as District 5 their due diligence. See which players will be part of The Mighty Ducks Funko POPs roster below. Read More »

There have been a handful of Back to the Future Funko POPs released over the years, but most of them have been tied to the original movie from 1985. That will change later this year though when a batch of Funko POPs inspired by the sci-fi franchise hit shelves in honor of the original film’s 35th anniversary. Along with some new collectible figures inspired by the first movie, we’ll finally get some more Funko POPs from Back to the Future Part II. Check them out below. Read More »
In case you didn’t realize, this year marks the 40th anniversary of Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back. Regarded as one of the best sequels of all time, it’s largely considered to be the best film in the entire saga. And it wouldn’t be a proper celebration without a special line of toys being released by Hasbro to commemorate it.
Back at Toy Fair 2020 in February, Hasbro announced that there would be a wave of re-releases featuring previously retired figures from the Black Series line in retro packaging. Figures like Luke Skywalker and Han Solo in Bespin gear, Leia Organa in Hoth gear, Lando Calrissian, and more are returning. But the best part of the Empire Strikes Back 40th anniversary toys are the new Snowspeeder scaled to the 6-inch Black Series figures, and an Imperial Probe Droid too. Check them all out below.

Now that Hasbro has the toy license for the Ghostbusters franchise, including the upcoming Ghostbusters: Afterlife, they’re making good use of it. We’ve already gotten a glimpse of the first wave of action figures inspired by the original Ghostbusters movie from 1984, but Hasbro is also reaching back to the time Ghostbusters spent animated on Saturday mornings.
First up, this spring will see Hasbro re-releasing the first wave of The Real Ghostbusters action figures that were originally released on shelves by Kenner in 1987. On top of that, some Ghostbusters role-playing gear will return to shelves, with some updates inspired by Ghostbusters: Afterlife, but a design style reminiscent of the Real Ghostbusters toy line.

It’s a good time to be a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles fan. In the past couple years, the collectible toy makers at NECA have been delivering some incredible figures inspired by the comic book movie franchise. Their action figure lines range from detailed and and perfectly sculpted versions of characters from the original movie from 1989 to stylized figures modeled after the animated series. And as Toy Fair 2020 revealed, there are plenty more to come.
Since NECA is starting to run out of characters from the original Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie, they’re now turning their attention to Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2: The Secret of the Ooze. Since the four turtles from the original movie are already out there, NECA is giving villains more of a spotlight, including the mutants Tokka and Rahzar, as well as the beefy version of the turtles’ arch nemesis. But don’t worry if the sequel doesn’t appeal as much, because there are a couple more figures from the original movie on the way too. Read More »
