Nerd News: Funko Fair Goes Old School on Movies Day

To make the movies day that bit more special, Funko have tackled a few older movies to really try and salvage the disappointment that was Marvel day on Friday. There had long been hope that the Cool Runnings pops would be announcedand I think no one is going to be bummed out about how good Sanka and Irving Blitzer look… I do want to see the whole cast eventually though!

Thats not the only older movie though with a Billy Hoyle and Sydney from White Men Can’t Jump joining Rick O’connell, Imhotep and Evelyn Carnahan from the Mummy… I think those last ones, especially Rick are some of the best to come out of Funko Fair yet!

I should have mentioned the next announcement at the same time as White Men Cant Jump as both movies came out in 1992… there is a set containing young Dracula, Van Helsing, Dracula in a gown complete with a chase version (although when I see him I just see mr burns from the simpsons tree house of horrors) and 2 versions of Dracula in armour. The masked one of these is a Funko shop exclusive.

Finally the most nostalgia provoking announcement is Data, Mikey, Brand, Chunk and 2 versions of Sloth from the goonies… Sloth and Chunk look amazing! One sloth is exclusive to Walmart while Brand is a Target exclusive.

I'm a collector of pop culture items, with by far my biggest collection being in excess of 1,200 DVDs (yeah I still stay old school - can't wrap my head around the whole streaming thing yet), as well as various figures and Memorabilia (with most of these being McFarlane Walking Dead 5 inch figures, Funko Pop and Funko Pint Size Heroes, with a few other exceptions too). I'm a massive nerd and giant child at heart so feel free to have a chat about anything toy and movie related. My biggest movie passions are horror by far (especially slasher and zombie), sci fi and to a lesser extent action and comedy.
