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.

When Avengers: Infinity War hit theaters this past weekend, fans immediately noticed a few stark differences between the trailers and the Marvel film. Whole scenes were nowhere to be seen in the movie, and several characters were not where they were supposed to be. But were some of these just cases of classic Marvel marketing misdirection? Or could they be hints at a previous storyline that was changed at the last minute? A new Pop Funko toy tied into the Marvel movie suggests at least one of these differences point to a possible Infinity War Hulk deleted scene.
Minor spoilers for Avengers: Infinity War follow.

Since the Jurassic Park franchise was reinvigorated with the legacy-quel Jurassic World in 2015, the merchandise for the action adventure film series featuring hungry dinosaurs has been ramped up to its full potential. There are plenty of action figures, t-shirts, stuffed dinosaurs, video games and much more to cash in on the Jurassic Park name. However, not much attention has been paid to bringing the original Jurassic Park to life in merchandise form again, but LEGO is about to change that.
A new Jurassic Park LEGO set will be available for purchase next week, and it allows fans to recreate several iconic scenes fro Steven Spielberg’s original movie. More specifically, it brings to life the third act chase sequence with a pack of velociraptors chasing down Dr. Alan Grant (Sam Neill), Dr. Ellie Sattler (Laura Dern), and John Hammond’s grandchildren Lex (Ariana Richards) and Tim (Joseph Mazzello).
