Review: X-Men Mystery Minis

In keeping with the new waves of Pops and Dorbz, Funko’s expansion of their X-Men line has involved a set of Mystery Minis.  Mystery Minis can be one of Funko’s most unpredictable products, since each series is in a completely different style.  Here is a look at four pieces from …

Review: GS “Beam Up” Spock Dorbz

Funko has recently expanded the Dorbz line all the way to planet Vulcan with a great new GameStop exclusive.  This figure features Spock midway through a transporter trip.  The translucent, glittery portion looks a lot like the actual transporter visual effect used in the original series, and the fact that …

Review: Doctor Strange Pop! Vinyl

On Friday, I finally had some time to go see the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s latest origin story, Doctor Strange.  Knowing that members of the general public wouldn’t be so enthusiastic about an obscure character know only to comic-readers, I wasn’t expecting much, but I thought it turned out to be …

Review: “The Dark Knight Returns” Joker

One Writer’s NYCC Experience

On Saturday, I finally went to New York Comic Con for the first time.  Even though I was only there for one day, I had an amazing time and can’t wait for next October when NYCC rolls around again.  There were lots of awesome and hilarious homemade costumes such as …

Legends of Tomorrow: The Atom Review

One year before Man of Steel brought DC Comics back into the eyes of the genral public, the CW’s Arrow started one of the greatest TV trends of the decade: superhero shows.  What started as one underfinanced but watchable TV show has grown over the past five years to blossom into …

Review: Pint Size Heroes- Batman

If you ask collectors what their three favorite Funko lines are, most of them will probably say Pops, Dorbz, and Mystery Minis.  If you’re one of those people, Funko has a brand new line that is a perfect blend of all three . . . Pint Size Heroes!  These figures …
