Last week, you might have been weirded out by Funko’s release of a certain set of action figures in their Savage World line-up that turned iconic slashers like Michael Myers and Jason Vorhees into post-apocalyptic, pulp fiction style action figures with some of the biggest muscles you’ve ever seen. The line is inspired by the classic Masters of the Universe figures from decades ago, and thankfully, a more appropriate brand name is getting the Savage World treatment for fans to collect.
Thundercats is one of the most beloved animated shows of the 1980s, and since the character designs weren’t far off in style from the super ripped characters of Masters of the Universe, they’re the perfect intellectual property to get their own Savage World action figures. Check them out below. Read More »

But part of this new action figure line-up is positively perplexing.
Funko has unveiled a line of Savage World Horror figures that give the buff body action figure treatment to some of horror’s most iconic slashers. So for those of you who have always wanted to see insanely muscular versions of the killers from Texas Chainsaw Massacre, A Nightmare on Elm Street, Halloween, Hellraiser and Friday the 13th, these action figures are for you.

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.
