Funko has been churning out endless amounts of their POP Vinyl figures for pretty much every facet of pop culture, but they’ve also been expanding their toys and collectibles to less stylized action figures.

In November, Funko will be releasing a series of action figures from DuckTales, Darkwing Duck, TalesSpin and Chip ‘n’ Dale’s Rescue Rangers as part of their new Disney Afternoon Collection. Check out the first figures in this collection below. Read More »
This weekend brings the premiere of the new DuckTales animated series to Disney XD. It’s a new spin on the fan favorite show from the 1990s featuring the globe-trotting adventures of Scrooge McDuck and his three nephews Huey, Dewey and Louie, this time brought to life by the voices of David Tennant, Danny Pudi, Ben Schwartz and Bobby Moynihan.
Along with the new spin of the same characters, it turns out DuckTales will do something that the original series never did before. As we learned last fall, despite sharing the characters Launchpad McQuack and Gizmoduck, DuckTales and the other anthropomorphic duck animated series Darkwing Duck took place in different universes. But when it comes to the new DuckTales series, that won’t be the case. Find out more below. Read More »
Let’s get dangerous. That’s the tagline uttered by the caped crusader known as Darkwing Duck.

Since both the shows hailed from Disney, had anthropomorphic ducks, and shared two characters, many assumed that Darkwing Duck was a spin-off of DuckTales. However, the creator of Darkwing Duck has just confirmed that’s not the case.
So why isn’t Darkwing Duck connected to DuckTales? Find out after the jump. Read More »
