As you can see, Seasons One and Three of the show are well represented in this upcoming collection of Pop! Television: American Horror Story vinyl figures. Available in September at your favorite comic shop or online retailer that stocks Funko products, this dark lot looks to invade your personal space and perhaps put the fear of… something into you as you try and get a decent night’s rest. You know, I’ve only seen maybe four episodes of that show? I never could get into it for some reason and it certainly didn’t creep me out as much as some people. Hmm… perhaps that’s thanks to my new normal just being weirder than usual…

Funko Drops A Walmart Surprise Down For The Walking Dead Fans (Plus A Chance To WIN!)

BW DD Pop 

Ha! Funko slipped this into my inbox and I’m a little late in posting but “ATTENTION WALMART SHOPPERS!” Today you can stroll into your favorite one (is there such a thing as a “favorite” Walmart? I dunno, as there are ZERO near me) and get this cool Walmart Exclusive Black and White Daryl Dixon Pop! for your collection. Heck, buy out the entire pallet and put the whole thing against one wall of your room just so you can sleep better at night knowing that you’re safer in the Upcoming Zombie Apocaylpse (TM). Or not. Hey, Funko is so cool these days that they’re also giving you a chance to win one of these vinyls in the usual manner. Hop on over to one of the company’s social channels:

Oh, wait… you didn’t enter yet and the contest is still going on. DON’T OPEN THAT DOOR! Ooops. Too late… well, I gotta run – er, see you in a bit (maybe?)(exits, stage left)

Funko Is Bringing Your Shelves Some Scary Collectible Goodies Soon…

funko logoOnce again, Funko is whipping out more reasons to lighten your wallet and fill your shelves. This time, it’s the Master of Suspense himself, Alfred Hitchcock, immortalized (or is that “immoral-ized”) as a Wacky Wobbler (and I have the feeling Hitch would love being a bobblehead), available for sale this October. Take a look and while you’re looking, think of someone you’d love to give this to (even if it’s yourself, because one should always think of him or herself first when gift-giving):

Hitch Wobbler If you can’t wait until October (what, you have a date with a paid assassin or something?), In August, you can snap up these six new awesome ReAction figures from some classic (well, 1978 and up) horror flicks you may have seen once or twice. Take a peek between those fingers you’ve not got covering your face, why don’t you:

funko crow funko freddy funko jason funko pinhead funko pumpkin funko shape

Now that you’re suitably scared (well, okay, suitably thrilled and whipping out your wallet), you may as well know that keeping these killers in their packaging is probably a very darn good idea. Just a suggestion… for safety’s sake.

This Funko Hikari Friday Giveaway Is More Than Meets The Eye!

Hikari logoThis week’s Funko Hikari Vinyl Figure giveaway is a double shot for you to win one of two really cool licensed classic Transformers vinyls! Oh, here’s a little note to you big Mr. Bay-haters out there: these aren’t the ones from that new movie at all, so you can enter with pride and confidence that your shelves won’t be cluttered with that you call “inferior” product at all. Anyway, if you’re now feeling even better at that news, why not try to win?

Go hit up one of Funko’s social network channels NOW:

BUY THESE! Funko Gets Guardians of the Galaxy All Bobbly And Tiny And Collectible This July

GotG_Mystery Minis Box 
Okay, Funko. I want an entire box of these Guardians of the Galaxy Mystery Minis and I don’t even have ROOM for them! These mini-bobbleheads are coming in July (price TBA) and man, aren’t they CUTE? I mean LOOK. AT. THEM. (faint, *THUD*):

GOTG_Minis_detail 
Anyway, blind box packaging, no “rares” to chase down, but two of them glow in the dark. If you want in on these, check the usual comic shop and online haunts for these in about two months. I bet they sell out everywhere, especially if the movie is bigger than it’s going to be…

Transformers: Age of Extinction Gets The Funko Pop! Treatment

Optimus Pop

funko logoWhile Transfomers: Age of Extinction may not be my big summer film at all this year (or ever!), leave it to Funko to get my interest piqued in more of their Pop! vinyl figure line with these three new pieces coming this month at a retailer near you that stocks this cool collectible stuff.

Check out Optimus Prime, Bumblebee and Autobot Drift here and then make room somewhere for them in your collection. I wonder if anyone has just run out of room entirely in their place and had to knock a hole in a wall somewhere, pick up a new cabinet or shelf or pull off some other shenanigans to get MORE of these figures in their space.

Bumblebee Pop Autobot Drift Pop

Of course, you KNOW what happens when you buy or build a new place to store stuff, right? That new “solution” will look SO empty with just one, two or three of these vinyls on it… which means you just HAVE to fill it up, right? Yeah, I know how that goes, people…

Funko Goes Back To The Future To Change The Present!

McFly w Delorean

Funko is doing it again, folks. Now, you’ll be getting not only a cool Pop! Marty McFly with that DeLorean (called Time Machine here most likely so as not to tick off the DeLorean people, whomever they are these days), but the company is also going to be releasing ReAction figures of Marty, Doc Brown, George McFly and of course, Biff (that bastard!).

BTTF ReAction Marty BTTF ReAction Doc Brown

BTTF ReAction George BTTF ReAction Biff

Still, we need the ladies to get represented here, as this sausage fest will look pretty strange without them (especially given the plot of that classic flick). Anyway, Pop goes the Pop! Marty in June, while the ReAction set of four drops in July. Unless you happen to have a Time Machine, enough road to get up to 88MPH and room in the seat next to you for all of this cool stuff. In which case, you already own these, you time-cheat!

Happy Star Wars Day! Funko Wants To “Force” Some Awesome Swag On You!

funko logo Well, I’m sure if you happen to win this particular contest you won’t be whining at ALL about the fine folks at Funko sending you a box with SUPER rare items in it, right? in fact, I’d bet you’d be dancing around the room to some Meco if you DID win this really spectacular set of swag.
