You know, I don't like Pop figures. But I have to admit, those X-Men look really, really good.

The detailing is really good, and kudos to them for actually giving Hank pronounced brow ridges instead of just using the same head as Warren.

Gotta say, the more I see of these Funko POP! 80th Anniversary Marvel figures, the more I like 'em. There's a "first appearance" Black Widow available for pre-order that has the costume details so perfect it could be used as reference.

I am going to have to be strong to resist these! Shelf space is already at a minimum!

Funko must have some really low overhead as they are willing to put out anything and everything in POP form. I really like them and the Original Human Torch and Submariner 80th figs are excellent.

This brings back a few memories...

MiG-31 Firefox from the 1982 Clint Eastwood movie.

How sturdy are the Funko POP Marvel bobbleheads? Iíve had virtually zero luck with bobbleheads, but most of them have been ballpark souvenir promotions. I have two POP standard figures that I enjoy, but those X-Men figures look amazing.

Since mine sit on shelves and are for display only, I can testify only that they are sturdy enough for that!

Lord of the Rings Mini Epics...

In the latest email I received from Previews, there was an image of a vinyl figure of Gandalf. It looked pretty cool as a small image, but I prepared myself to be disappointed that the cost would be beyond my means (as most of these types of figures tend to be!). To my surprise, it was priced at $29.99. That could work!
Then I followed a link to the website of the creators of these figures (https://www.wetanz.com/brands/the-lord-of-the-rings) (under "any product type" click on "vinyl figures") & they have a whole slew of Lord of the Rings figures that could fit in my budget! With the exception of the Balrog... I'll have to save up for that one!
Here's the caveat... They were created by Weta, who are responsible for the special effects (& more) of Peter Jackson' film versions, so they mostly resemble the actors that portrayed the characters in those films. I know that some are not fans of the films, so fair warning.
I've attached an image of Gandalf to this post...

Wondering if anyone went ahead and purchased the Amazon exclusive Alpha Flight boxed set?  If so, what do you think... worth it?  The figures look good? 

I want to buy it, but am still fuming over Heather replacing Mac and there being NO Sasquatch.

I found a link on eBay for a '66 TV Batmobile pedal car that looked pretty cute. Since I'm obsessive (it seems) about owning every possible version of this ghost of the Lincoln Futura, I asked Jim Warden to use the "Buy Now" function and get it for me. My Xmas present to myself.

Jim, however, read deeper into the description than I had, and discovered what was being offered was just an unpainted shell. Boo!!
