Pop! Movies: Stanley Kubrick’s The Shining

One of my favorite horror films from the 1980's is getting the Funko Pop! treatment. The Pop! Movies: Stanley Kubrick’s The Shining series has been announced for a summer 2017 release. The lineup will include the Torrance family: Jack with signature axe; Wendy toting a knife; and Danny with his own knife. There will be a special chase Frozen Jack available - a 1-in-6 rarity.

In addition, look for The Grady Twins available only at Target. And you can find a special chase chase piece of The Grady Twins, featured in blood - a rarity of 1-in-6 (likely right next to the Paw Patrol stuff).

But if you can't wait, Amazon.com already has a number of these available to pre-order. I know, because I've pre-ordered mine.

Hot Toys Announces and Teases

Hot Toys has announced [and teased] that might possibly be viewable at the Sideshow Collectibles San Diego Comic Con booth. Those announcements (all 1/6th scale, I'm presuming) include the Grand Moff Tarkin teaser shown above. For Star Wars fans, I believe this would be the first time we've seen Tarkin in high-end 1/6th scale.

Also, as seen below, they've announced the Valerian 1/6th scale license and are showing off a pair of figures based on characters I have no clue about.

There's the announcement of the Thor Ragnarok license, though that's not much of a surprise based on Hot Toys' 1/6th scale Marvel series. 

Finally, they're showing off a teaser image of the upcoming 1/6th scale Yondu figure from Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2.

I’m Gonna Burst…

Artist Emilio Subirá has introduced a new character he has named "I'm gonna burst". He's described as "a sweet nihilistic ballon worried about how long he is gonna endure the party of the existence. Behind its cute appearance hides the pain of a nonconformist sick of it all who feels mandatorely invited to an absurd party that he can´t stand any more. That´s why he seems quite sad."

Currently available in three color versions (Red, Purple, and Orange) there are 3 pieces in each of those colorways. The nearly 4.33-inch tall resin figures are available for $69.00 each and come with a certificate of authenticity (numbered, dated, and signed).
