Funko Gets Teeny Tiny with the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Minis

Walk into just about any store that sells the merest of pop culture merchandise these days and you are likely to find Funko Pop! Vinyl Figures. Hell, I walked into a 711 the other day and an endcap was overflowing with the little buggers. In the last year or so, Funko have revved up their mini offerings with endless waves of Mystery Mini figures, so it comes as no surprise that Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles would be in their sights! Put me down for a Casey Jones and a Krang, please!!!

The Deadpool Movie Is A GO

And just like that, with an email dropped in my box gleefully, albeit cryptically stating "DEADPOOL. MOVIE. 2-12-16" from a very trusted source, it is GAME ON!!

Bigshot Toyworks Presents Mike Mignola's "Monkey With a Gun"

Some artistic images are instantly iconic, resonating with audiences across the planet as they receive some unspoken message delivered to the viewer directly. They'll say  "It's a message about gun violence in our schools." or "It's a reminder to always question who holds the power and how much power we give them"....or maybe it's just a monkey holding a gun, drawn by the unmistakable hand of Mike Mignola of Hellboy fame!

With a love that knows no bounds for a body of amazing work, Bigshot Toyworks is proud to present "Monkey With A Gun", a limited edition, hand crafted resin figure standing 9.5 inches tall with a faux-bronze paint application. The result is a must have piece that will be the center of any die hard Mignola fan's art collection and a striking point of conversation amid a comic book lover's displays. Of course, you don't need to be either of those things to appreciate this killer translation from page to three dimensions, with all that monkey angst included at no extra cost.

Also on tap will be Sauron from The Lord of the Rings, most likely due to his fiery appearance in The Desolation of Smaug.
