Celebrating the 40th anniversary of Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back is a little hard this year since it’s not exactly the safest time to head back to movie theaters as they start to reopen this month and into September. That’s especially difficult with Star Wars Celebration 2020 canceled this year. But the good news is that some of the exclusives that were intended for release at the sci-fi saga’s convention will still be available for fans to get their hands on.
A new batch of Star Wars Funko POPs will be released later this month that bring Ralph McQuarrie’s original concept art designs of some of the movie’s characters to life. Plus, there’s a new Funko POP movie scene from The Empire Strikes Back, as well as a LEGO set inspired by the iconic lightsaber duel between Luke Skywalker and Darth Vader on Cloud City where the saga’s biggest revelation was made back in 1980.

There are already plenty of Funko POPs inspired by the beloved NBC comedy series The Office. Not only have the primary cast members been given generic regular vinyl figures, but Funko has started to dig into specific episodes to give us variations on characters, such as Meredith with her pixelated boob peeking out, Kelly in casual Friday clothing, the Florida version of Stanley, and tons of different versions of Dwight. But of course even more The Office Funko POPs are on the way.
The latest round of The Office Funko POPs include new retail exclusive versions of Michael Scott, Dwight Schrute, Kevin Malone, and Jim Halpert, as well as the addition of Michael’s questionable lover Jan Levinson. Check them all out and find out where to get them below. Read More »
San Diego Comic-Con is nearly upon us. Well, this year it’s Comic-Con at Home with a bunch of virtual panels instead of the usual massive gathering of nerds and geeks at the San Diego Convention Center, but we’ll try to make the best of it.
Even though there isn’t a show floor to scour for the usual Comic-Con exclusive merchandise, that’s not stopping the arrival of a new wave of 2020 SDCC exclusive Funko POPs. While this year’s selection feels a little lackluster overall, the introduction of one particular new series of Funko POPs kinda makes up for it. We’re talking about a set of Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy Funko POPs featuring several different versions of the titular San Francisco news man, and some of the Channel 4 news team.

Even though there are plenty of worrisome outcomes from the acquisition of 20th Century Fox by The Walt Disney Company, there is some good that comes from the business deal, especially for fans of X-Men. Not only are fans excited to see the mutants enter the Marvel Cinematic Universe at some point, but now the X-Men franchise can finally see some proper modern merchandise inspired by the original movies. You can start your new collection with the first wave of X-Men movie Funko POPs.
20th Anniversary X-Men Movie Funko POPs
Even though the X-Men movie Funko POPs are being launched in conjunction with the 20th anniversary of the original movie, there are figures from the first trilogy in the franchise.
As you can see, you’ll find two versions of Wolverine, one with Logan in his traditional white tanktop, jeans and boots, and the other in the black leather suit from the first movie. There’s also a crouching Mystique, Rogue removing her glove to touch someone and steal their powers, and Cyclops with his swishing black coat and optic blast eyewear.
Meanwhile, from the sequels, we’ve got Nightcrawler from X2: X-Men United, complete with detailed face markings, as well as Beast in his suit X-Men: The Last Stand, and the all-powerful Phoenix version of Jean Grey.
There are also alternate versions of both Mystique and Magneto, the former with a more shiny metallic paint job, and the latter modeled after the younger version of villain in X-Men: Days of Future Past.
For my money though, the best two characters in this first wave are Charles Xavier and Magneto, as played by Sir Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellen.
Hopefully this is just the beginning for the X-Men movie Funko POPs line. There are some other variations of characters that would be cool to see, something like Cyclops with his eyes blasting, or a metallic Colossus, maybe even a fiery Pyro. Plus,
With Star Wars Day just around the corner, another round of The Mandalorian Funko POPs have just been made available for pre-order at various retailers. Even though Lucasfilm was late to get Baby Yoda merchandise out to the masses in order to preserve the secret of the little guy from the Disney+ Star Wars series, they’re making up for it by giving us even ore Baby Yoda Funko POPs, each one with a signature snack, as well as a diorama scene featuring Mando and Baby Yoda, and the new villain Moff Gideon wielding the legendary Darksaber.
