Funko Gold Series 1 Premium Vinyl Figures; Biggie Smalls Review

I had written earlier in the year about these being on the horizon for Funko and I wondered at the time whether it was a series they particularly needed at that time, or this time for that matter. After that things seemed to go a bit quiet on this line until I suddenly just happened […]

8 Inch Gashadokuro Dunny by KidRobot

I’ve wanted to get a transparent designer toy for a long time now and have just never pulled the trigger. There are a few different companies that do them, and I’m not talking about double cast resin figures – what I’ve always had in mind are clear ABS shells with more going on inside. Some […]

Hasbro Star Wars Playskool Galactic Heroes Mega Mighties – Stormtrooper

I got one of these figures today and straight up – it’s not one I got for me and I won’t be collecting these. I think items which are designed for that 3+ pre-school age range just generally don’t make great collectibles. On the one hand they are very stylised and cartoonish which makes them […]

A Closer Look at the DC Heroes Breast Cancer Research Foundation Funko Pops

Last year Funko got involved with a few charity events and I think that makes for an amazing opportunity for Funko. Of course it drives sales and a lot of people were annoyed that Funko still makes some profit from those figures – but really who cares? Why shouldn’t they still make a marginal profit? […]

What is TCon the ToyConosaurus by ToyCon

TCon the ToyConosaurus is the physical figure which brings the mascot of the UK ToyCon to life each year, and every year it is very slightly different. The one which you’ll see in this article is my own one which came from the 2020 ToyCon and has a marbled colourway. This particular one is actually […]

What is a Kidrobot Dunny

Wow, now that’s a hell of a question!  I could write on for ages about the various different series, sizes and collaborations but that would make for one long post which I think no one is going to want to read.  So what I’ll do instead is to give you an overview of the basics […]

Splat With A Hat for Customisers by Splatoys

I recently got a box of 5 splats with hats from Splatoys as part of a promotion they did with some splats which they had stripped of most of the paint and wanted to see what people could do with them. They were advertised as such so I wasn’t expecting them to arrive perfect and […]

Playmobil Back to the Future Advent Calendar

Last year I had a Funko calendar which was really cool, but this year I wanted to try out something else, so I went for the Playmobil Back to the Future one instead.  It looked like a really cool product and I got it from their official website at the same time as picking up […]

What is a Monskey Maniacs Figure?

Monskey figures are amongst the first of the customizable vinyl toys which grace the designer toy world these days, and they are one which has remained synonymous with street art… The brand is designed with one thing in mind, and that is for the figure to be a canvas. In the past these figures were […]

What is a Funko Arcade Vinyl Figure?

As of the writing of this post, I would say that the first thing to know about what they are, is an apparent failed Funko line… Purely because they never made any more. As it stands it is purely a Five Night at Freddy’s (FNAF) range made up of just 5 figures, which were announced […]

What is a Mezco Living Dead Doll?

Mezco is a toy producer which makes all manner of genres both in terms of product styles and fandoms covered. Whether it’s action figures or dolls, or comic characters or ones based on original artwork, their work is absolutely stunning. The way I first got introduced to them was through what I believe they do […]

DC Batwing x Justice League Batman & Cyborg Soap Studio Double Pack

I have to be completely honest and say that I had never heard of Soap Studio before and when I popped in to a B&M Home Store which wasn’t my usual one, I saw these figures for the first time. If you check them out on eBay for some reason they range as high as […]

The Child (Baby Yoda to me & you) 10 Inch Funko Pop Review (Video)

There’s not an awful lot which I can really say about this pop which wasn’t already said in the YouTube video below. The main reason for this is that the main thing to say about this thing is that it is absolutely massive, and I can’t possibly over state that fact! It is wider than […]

The Funko Pride Collection

The Funko pride collection was announced earlier this year and it is not June 2020, the month when it should be getting shipped, so I’m looking forward to receiving the Sponge bob which I have ordered for my wife and am seriously wondering whether I need to get Batman and Hello Kitty as well before […]

What is a Funko Pop Figure?

I would say that the first thing to say about Funko Pop figures is that they are probably the best selling and widest ranging pop culture collectible on the market right now… Not just amongst figures but amongst all things pop culture! It’s not just a figure or a product it’s nothing short of being […]

Star Wars Darth Vader Funko Pop (Futura Special Edition) Review

Character Background It’s at this point where I would usually do a short background intro about the character. In this case, that character intro wouldn’t be a particularly short one, and quite frankly, if you have no idea who Darth Vader is… What are you even doing here? Get off the internet, you’re using up […]

Funko Hikari XS Darth Vader

The pop range is of course by far the most popular product type for Funko, and their Hikari range often gets left behind. The two biggest reasons for this is often that people think that the Hikari range is too expensive and too big. This figure, I think shows this to be completely false, so […]

80 Years of Marvel Funko Advent Calendar

It’s the end of Christmas day and the wife and baby are in bed (after he proved that he takes after me by literally eating so much Christmas dinner that he puked) and I thought it was a great time to have a chat about the advent calendar which finished yesterday. Whilst there were 3 […]

World’s Smallest Hot Wheels (Fast Fish 2008) Review

I don’t collect toy cars usually, with this only being my second one. The other is a Greenlight Walking Dead die cast car which I only got as I needed something related to Sophia (Carol’s daughter) to get signed. However I saw this little thing today in a Micromania-Zing shop while on a business trip […]

Lora Zombie Unicorn Kiss (White)

I’ll start this off by saying that if this was just a white unicorn figure, with nothing else going for it, I wouldn’t have even looked twice as unicorns really don’t interest me one bit, however, look a little closer and you’ll see that this is a little more special than that! It’s a 5″ […]

Funko Dorbz Proto Man

Everyone who has been reading this page for a while or knows me, will know that I’m big on Funko pops, and in general a big fan of what Funko, as a company produce. I even started collecting the pint sized heroes a little while ago, however Dorbz… Well Dorbz never really appealed to me. […]

Greenlight Hollywood 1967 Ford Mustang Coupe 1/64 Scale

I don’t usually collect cars and this is at the time of writing still the only car in my collection, although I have on several occasions considered whether or not to expand on this collection both within this 1/64 scale range, and the (much cooler) 1/18 scale range. This same car in the 1/18 scale […]

Baldwin the Unfortunate Bear figure by Charlotte Something

I’ve been following Charlotte Something on Instagram for a few years now (a couple of her accounts actually) as she’s a great cosplayer, fun model to follow and has crazy illustration talents! She sells a wide variety of items in her shop, and I believe has even more on her Patreon, although having never been […]

Funko Pint Size Heroes: Horror

For a long time I’d been avoiding the pint size heroes as they just didn’t appeal to me – their size and the fact that the majority of them come in blind bags aren’t something I was interested in collecting… That is until I found one on special offer and purchased it. I went back […]
