DC Gallery Batman New Adventures Catwoman PVC Diorama

A Diamond Select Toys Release! We’ve never been more excited for a black cat to cross our path! This black-costumed rendition of Catwoman is based on her drastically different appearance in the fourth season of Batman: The Animated Series (titled New Batman Adventures).

This PVC figure features detailed sculpting and paint applications, and comes packaged in a full-color window box. Sculpted by Varner Studios!

Awaken Mother Of Dragons!

Fans have been wondering for months who the next figure we might be seeing from ThreeZero’s 1:6th scale ‘Game Of Thrones’ line was, and now we finally have our answer! While details on the figure are practically nonexistent, ThreeZero recently revealed the first image of their new 1:6th scale Daenerys Targaryen figure! We try to stay opinionated with the news, but wow does that figure look nice! Hopefully we get some more information from ThreeZero regarding the release date and cost of this already highly anticipated figure!

The Funko Forecast

It’s Morphin Time!

When Funko announced a few months back that they would be releasing POP! Vinyls of the Black, Blue, Yellow, and Green Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, fans were both relieved and incredibly upset. While the relief makes sense, why would anyone be upset you ask? Because the original Red, White, and Pink Ranger POP! Vinyls released way back in 2012, and have skyrocketed into triple digit values on the secondary market since then. Funko has finally come up with an answer to please everyone, by release new ‘action pose’ versions of the Red, White, and Pink Rangers! This way everyone can complete their set of Rangers, while the people who picked up the original run figures can still retain their collector value! Check out the new glam shots of the action-posed Red, White, and Pink Rangers below!
