Pop! Television: American Horror Story

Funko-American-Horror-Story-1

When I think of television series that lend themselves perfectly to Funko's cute little Pop! Television line...American Horror Story probably would land somewhere between Deadwood and True Blood. But, hell, if they're releasing figures from True Blood and Breaking Bad, I'm guessing that some lines are made to cater more towards adult collectors.

This series of American Horror Story Pop! figures features characters from both Season One and Season Three of the popular FX anthology series. They should start hitting your favorite shops around September 2014...just in time to celebrate the new season premiere.

Mezco-NYCC-Frank

Mezco Toyz is already rolling out some exclusives that you'll be able to find at this year's New York Comic Con. The NYCC Exclusive Son Of Frankenstein limited edition figure will be available at Booth #1855. It stands 9" tall and features ten points of articulation, as well as a genuine simulated fur tunic with cloth sleeves.

Only 500 pieces will be available worldwide. And if you're not going to NYCC, a small number of exclusives will be available to pre-order via Mezco's online shop beginning on August 22nd 2014.

Pop! Rides: TMNT Turtle Van

Funko-TMNT-Van

Since I don't actually have any of them...I almost always forget that those little Pop! vinyl figures from Funko are so small.  It's not until I see someone manhandling one that I realize I'm either looking at the world's largest hands...or these guys are minifigs.

Then, when they release something like the Pop! Rides: TMNT Turtle Van, I reassure myself that we're not talking about something the size of a Smart car. I won't be battling any of these things for parking spots. Or maybe I will...we shall see come September 2014.

Kickstart the Hotline Miami 1/6 Scale Figure

Dennaton, Devolver Digital and ESCtoy.com have joined up to launch a Kickstarter campaign to get the first ever sixth-scale (12" tall) Hotline Miami - Jacket articulated (15 points) figure into production.

Based on the award winning (and amazingly retro) PC game Hotline Miami, the figure is slated to include four removable heads: Tony (Tiger), Richard (Rooster), Aubrey (Pig), and a bloody, bandaged Jacket head. The figure also comes with interchangeable clothing including a letter jacket, t-shirt, pair of jeans, Air Vigilante sneakers and a hospital gown. There will be three weapons - a shotgun, baseball bat, and katana.

In addition to the figure, there are also funding levels that receive a Steam code for Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number (not yet released) and its soundtrack, as well as pins, wallpapers, and other goodies. 

This project will only be funded if at least $60,000 is pledged by Saturday, September 20th 2014 at 1:44 PM EDT. About a day in, and they've already eclipsed the 50% funding mark.
