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.
Created by artist Beck and Mindzai Labs, Mayor 4 Crack is a designer art toy project that's hit Kickstarter in an attempt to raise funds for production. Lampooning Toronto's "infamous crack-smoking mayor Rob Ford", the 5-inch Ford will include interchangeable signs...featuring some of his colorful quotes. And while there isn't a prototype available, the final 3D render is pictured below.
There are plans for various colorways, including a DIY version. The Early Bird Original Version is limited to 75 backers and is available for a $40.00 pledge (normally $45.00). This project will only be funded if at least $12,500 CAD is pledged by Wednesday, August 20th 2014 at 11:16AM ET.
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?
