WWE: Series 2 will include current wrestlers as well as some classics, including: Daniel Bryan, Undertaker, Triple H, 'Macho Man' Randy Savage, and Hulk Hogan. Iwonder if they could have made Daniel Bryan's beard a little larger...
Funko has announced their new Pocket Pop! keychain line. Each keychain is 1.5" tall and comes on a key ring. he first wave includes character from Batman, Game of Thrones, The Walking Dead, and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Look for them to be available in Fall 2014.

Guardians of the Galaxy appears to be a fairly marketable movie...especially on the toy and collectible front. The latest item is from Funko - the Rocket Raccoon Fabrikation. The 6"tall "soft sculpted figure" is filled with dense foam, features a rotating head, and includes a vinyl gun accessory. No word on when you'll be able to grab one of your own.
The final batch of Funko's San Diego Comic Con exclusives has been announced. While this is part #3 on this site, they actually sent out 9 emails featuring multiple exclusives per email. So you know they aren't playing around when it comes to providing exclusives...where else will you find toys from the following licenses: Sharknado, Pulp Fiction, Saw, and Huckleberry Hound?

Funko continues to roll out more and more San Diego Comic Con 2014 Exclusives. This time, it's items from Frozen, Guardians of the Galaxy, Breaking Bad, The Walking Dead, Game of Thrones, My Little Pony, and Marvel Superheroes. So...pretty much every huge television and film license out there.
Funko just continues to announce more and more San Diego Comic Con 2014 exclusive releases. So many that rather than trying to write out or describe them to you...I'll just let you look.
There's really no rhyme or reason for any of the licenses that are receiving the SDCC treatment. Just be aware that there will likely be a lot of people camping out to get their hands on at least one of these things.
