Dancing Baby Groot Figure Coming Soon
Just when you thought you needed to stop spending money on toys, Funko drops this (literal) baby of a figure. The incredibly popular dancing Groot will be available as a POP Vinyl very soon, with an announcement of a date early next week. So here’s an announcement of an announcement to get you hyped for it.
You can still buy the original Groot POP Vinyl right here at a whopping $40 on Amazon. Its head bobbles and you can pretend it’s a baby if you really wanted to.
Our longtime amigo Erick Scarecrow has teamed up with Dennaton Games and Devolver Digital for what could be his biggest release to date - a figure based on Jacket, the protagonist in the video game cult sensation Hotline Miami.
Pokemon Center Online Store Opens Up
The official Pokemon Center online store has finally opened up. The traffic on the website has been pretty hectic, but if you manage to make it through, you can purchase a Pokemon plush, keychain, t-shirt, and a bunch of other gifts over at the webstore. That includes the limited edition Special Delivery Pikachu plush seen up top.
To also celebrate the grand opening of the store, Pokemon Y/X users can receive a special level 12 Vivillon that is designed to look like a Pokeball. The Pokemon is available as “mystery gift" from now through Aug. 12. Check the Vivillion up top.

1966 LEGO Batman Project
Sam Gras writes in to us:
Hello, My name is Sam. I’m a Father, Cosplayer, and all around geek. My Four year old daughter is obsessed with Batman and Robin and asked me to make her a LEGO Batmobile that would fit both characters. I made her the iconic 1966 version. The build is on the LEGOIdeas website and has been in the top projects consistently every week. We currently have over 4,000 supporters.
With your help, we can reach our goal of 10K supporters and LEGO will consider producing the set. Below is a link to the build and my Facebook page. Please consider writing an article about the build, this would make an awesome little girl and her father very happy.
This is super rad and I really want those 60’s Batman and Robin figs. Head over to LEGO Ideas to support this project NOW!

BATMAN ‘YEAR OF THE HORSE’ STATUE
There’s very few things in the world of comic book collectibles as truly badass as this statue of Batman riding a black stallion. This is the THE DARK KNIGHT RETURNS: A CALL TO ARMS STATUE YEAR OF THE HORSE EDITION from DC Collectibles. Inspired by the legendary Frank Miller, this 14” statue is limited to just 1,000 pieces in the whole wide universe and will set you back about $400 when it goes on sale in December 2014. You hear that, Santa? The comes out around Christmas. I’ve been good this year. So far…
There was a version of this released a while back with Bats rocking his grey and blue suit, but I find this one to be way more badass.
DBZ & BLACK BUTLER POP! VINYL FIGURES COMING LATER THIS YEAR
The Black Butler set drops in July and will be a Hot Topic exclusive until November. The set features Grell, Sebastian, Undertaker, and Ciel.
Yeah… totally getting that Vegeta. His tiny little scouter is too freaking adorable to resist.
GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY MYSTERY BOBBLEHEADS FROM FUNKO
Starting in June you’ll be able to pick up these blindboxed 2.5” GotG bobbleheads featuring your favorite band of space outlaws and their not-so-nice friends. I’m not usually a fan of bobleheads, but I have some of the other Marvel Funko stuff and it’s actually pretty awesome. And look how freaking cool Groot looks!!! Yeah, I’ll definitely be picking a few of these little guys up.
KICKSTART THIS SHIZZ: EXPRESSALÓ
What do you get when you mix the adorableness of designer toys with the sentimentality of a greeting card? You get Expressaló! Each Expressaló represents a unique message ranging from “Happy Birthday!” to “I’m sorry.” The project is currently live on Kickstarter where it’s surpassed its $20,000 goal, but if the stretch goal is reached, more character designs will be produced and every single backer will receive one for free.
GRANPA McGRIZZLED CUSTOM DUNNY BY HUCK GEE
The latest addition to his World War Gee line of custom designer toys, Huck Gee will be putting this one-of-a-kind figure up for sale over at huckgee.com for 24 hours only on May 21 at 1pm PDT. He comes with some cool extras like a bloody chainsaw, a shotgun, and I’m loving the severed zombie arm on his ear. The price is set at $575 with an expected turnaround time of 6-8 weeks.
LEMONDROP 3-INCH DUNNY FROM KIDROBOT AND ANDREW BELL
Andrew Bell takes lends his signature style to the Dunny platform with Lemondrop, the latest 3” Dunny from Kidrobot set to release on May 22, 2014 for $14.99. This is one of the coolest Dunny designs I’ve seen in a while. Kind of a shame that it’s not an 8-inch though.
And speaking of Dunnys, Kidrobot recently revealed a sneak peek at the upcoming Dunny 2014 series. I’m interested in that upside down looking dude silhouetted the bottom. What do you think?
The gang over at Rotobox does what they do best in the way of yet another fantastic set of custom figures. There’s Logan in his classic X-Men suit as well as his yellow and brown threads from the 80’s. These are quite possibly my favorite pieces they’ve done to date.
If you’d like to own one of these customized figures for yourself, shoot an email over to firstname.lastname@example.org.
SIMPSONS LEGO MINIFIGURES REVEALED
Lego already released a $255 Simpsons House, but this coming May, they’ll be releasing a series of 16 Lego Simpsons figures to go along with it! The set drops May 1st with each figure being sold for $3.99 (most likely blind-packaged), just in time for the May 4th episode “Brick Like Me” which sees Springfield and all its residents turned into Lego bricks.
Now comes the hard part: resisting the urge to buy an entire case of these.
