This year marks 25 years since we met six New Yorkers who would become the most well known group of Friends in the world. Now the entire gang will be there for you in LEGO form as the building brick company is bringing to life the LEGO Ideas playset of the Central Perk Cafe, the central location of the beloved NBC sitcom that will soon be leaving Netflix.
Ross Geller (David Schwimmer), Rachel Green (Jennifer Aniston), Chandler Bing (Matthew Perry), Monica Geller (Courteney Cox), Joey Tribbiani (Matt LeBlanc), and Phoebe Buffay (Lisa Kudrow) tossed back many cups of joe and worked through plenty of problems that life threw their way at Central Perk, and now you can build that adorable New York cafe and each of your favorite characters in this outstanding Friends TV series LEGO set.

One of the best elements of Avengers: Endgame was the drastic change in Thor, the god of thunder. Traumatized by his failure at killing Thanos at the end of Avengers: Infinity War, Thor has gotten lost in beer and snacks. He’s severely overweight, panics at the drop of a hat, and always seems anxious (when he doesn’t seem drunk). Still, he has a confident swagger about him, even if that swagger has a drunken stumble in it.
Unfortunately, the merchandise has been few and far between for the Thor that Tony Stark refers to as Lebowski (inspired by Jeff Bridges as The Dude in The Big Lebowski). Sure, there have been a couple statues playing tribute to his more heroic-looking form, but we’ve yet to see a great collectible honoring this fraternity version of Thor. That changes today as Hasbro has revealed an Avengers Endgame Thor action figure in pajama pants, robe, hoodie and sunglasses. It’s probably the best Thor figure ever. Read More »
Earlier this week, we featured a new HasLab project asking collectors to crowdfund the creation of a life-size Cookie Monster replica. But the Hasbro collector initiative has a completely different toy that is vying for even more money in your wallet. It’s The Lord of Chaos, The Planet Eater, The Chaos Bringer. It’s the one and only Unicron.
After debuting in the 1986 animated Transformers: The Movie, HasLab wants to bring Unicron to your toy shelves in the form of the largest converting Transformers figure ever created. Unicron changes from planet mode to robot mode, and if you’ve got enough money, he can bring chaos and destruction to your toy collection. Read More »
When it comes to collectible art and vinyl soundtracks commemorating our favorite films and television shows, there’s almost no one better than Mondo. But every now and then, the company also likes to dip their toe into the collectible toy arena, and sometimes they do it in a truly weird way that only Mondo can deliver. And that’s what brings us to their latest endeavor: Mondoids.
The new Mondoids are said to come from the planet Mondoida, and they’ve come to our planet to make friends and eat snacks. That might be hard though since they appear as gnarly, slimy, gross versions of characters from Gremlins, Friday the 13th, Jurassic Park, Marvel Comics, and more. Get a look at the first wave of Mondoids figures available now. Read More »

How do you help sell a disturbing 2 hour and 30 minute horror movie to the masses? Toys! The skilled marketing folks at A24 have come up with a funny and somewhat ingenious tie-in to their latest nightmare, Midsommar. The Bear in a Cage toy features exactly what the name suggests: a bear in a cage. If you’ve seen Midsommar, you’ll find this rather amusing. If you haven’t seen Midsommar, you might be curious enough to learn more. In any case, the commercial A24 put together to sell the Bear in a Cage has to be seen to be believed.

Though Funko’s bread and butter is undoubtedly their signature POP! vinyl figures, their line-up has expanded to include vehicles that fit the trademark collectible toys. The Ghostbusters Ecto-1, the Jurassic Park Jeep Wrangler, the DeLorean time machine from Back to the Future, and more have all been turned into what are called Funko POP Rides.
But there’s also the Funko POP Deluxe line, which gives some larger, more unconventional vehicles the POP treatment. Most of them are Star Wars vehicles like Poe Dameron’s X-wing or Kylo Ren’s TIE Fighter, but now the fastest hunk of junk in the galaxy is being turned into the biggest hunk of plastic in Funko’s POP Deluxe line. Yes, it’s a Millennium Falcon Funko POP Deluxe. Read More »
