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:

Enter and keep your fingers crossed that you win before there’s something scratching and clawing at your door. Hmmmm… perhaps it’s the postman? You’d better go and check! You may be the winner! 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)

It’s Hikari Friday, Skeletor Needs A New Home And Funko Wants To Send Him Your Way…

Hikari logo 

Yep, it’s that time of the week again and this time, it’s everyone’s favorite skull-headed nuisance who wants to invade your collectibles shelf. Check out this Havoc Skeletor Hikari Sofubi Figure Funko is giving away to ONE very lucky winner:

#1 of only 2000 can be all YOURS if you get on over to one of Funko’s social channels, enter and do whatever lucky dance you do when you really want to score a win:

Well, okay… dancing is optional when you enter, but I’d bet you a buck you WILL dance around the room if you DO win this one. I know I’d be doing just that if I got that email next week saying I was the big winner! And if you don’t win, just poke your head into your favorite comics shop or other retailer that stocks Funko products and see if they have this in stock when it ships out in September. Anyway, GOOD LUCK as usual and check back next week for another Funko giveaway!

Funko’s Universal Pop! Horror Collection Wants To Creep Into Your Home…

Dracu Pop Franken Pop Bride of Pop Wolf Pop Mummy Pop Lagoon Pop Mutant Pop Phantom Pop

Well, aren’t these all TOO cute? Funko’s upcoming Universal Monsters Pop! Vinyl figures will be popping up at your favorite comic shops and online retailers in September and yep, I’m betting you’ll want them ALL in your collection. Of course, you don’t want to pair certain ones up because of the mayhem that will happen, so be sure to keep Frankenstein’s Monster away from the Bride of, The Wolfman, AND Dracula (the latter two would get along to a point, but barely). I’d gather The Mummy wants to be alone, but he’ll try and put the moves on any lady he’s near, so you want to also separate him from that Bride as well as The Phantom (because they’ll both go after her).

Finally, you just KNOW that Metaluna Mutant and The Creature From the Black Lagoon would be all up in each others’ faces (until they get distracted by The Bride, who won’t want anyone to touch her). Hmmmm… may I suggest they all get separate storage if you do snap up the entire set? Hey, I’m just looking out for you guys and gals – I kind of need every reader I can get these days!

Funko Wants To Make Your SDCC Visit Memorable With Some Tasty HANNIBAL Giveaways!

funko logo 

Funko has a bunch of stuff to give away at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con, but I’d say this HANNIBAL Pop! vinyl figure, custom made and signed by series creator Brian Fuller has to be one of the cooler items I’ve seen. Take a peek below:

Hannibal TV logo

Funko Fuller Hannibal 

Now, the ONLY way to get this one is to be AT the show! The figure will be on display at the Funko booth from Previews Night through Sunday. Stop by the booth and fill out an entry card – the big drawing will be on Sunday! One lucky winner will be selected and then that person had best hope he makes it out of the show in one piece, as I hear fans of that show can be pretty crazy (in a manner of speaking, of course!). In addition, Bryan Fuller and Hannibal actress Caroline Dhavernas will be signing at the Funko booth #5343 on Friday at 1pm AND there’s the chance for ONE more REALLY lucky fan to win an advanced set of the Hannibal Pop! figures. How? Well, one clue would be following @NBCHannibal and @OriginalFunko during the convention. I don’t think you need to be in attendance for the latter giveaway, but I’d gather chances may increase if you are out thataway. If you’re going or entering, as always… Good Luck!

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…
