Boss Fight Is On The Case!
Details on the latest announcement from Boss Fight Studios are scarce, but we’re excited about it anyway! Boss Fight has announced an all-new licensing deal that means in the near future we will be seeing new collectibles based on the classic ‘Sam & Max’ franchise! ‘Sam & Max’ tells the story of our titular heroes, a dog, and rabbit combo team as they solve crimes as freelance detectives! These characters have been around for quite a while, starting off as a comic book and finding themselves adapted into a long-running series of video games and a short-lived animated cartoon series!
We haven’t seen any direct information as to what kind of figures we can expect to see from Boss Fight for this series, but it’s probably a safe bet that we will get some fantastic looking figures of our titular heroes and hopefully something more! We will keep you all posted with more details from Boss Fight studios as it becomes available.

Funko Gets Top Scores With All New Line

Funko looks to be hoping for top marks with their newest figure line, ‘5 Star’. The line features stylized minifigures that sport 3 points of articulation. The figures come packaged in window boxes, so they aren’t quite the blindboxes we’re used to seeing from Funko minifigures. To top it all off, each figure includes character specific accessories so you can bring their worlds to life in your display!
The line is launching this July with the ‘Harry Potter’ license kicking things off! Characters in the first wave include Harry, Ron, Hermione, Hagrid, and Dumbledore!
There will also be a Walmart exclusive wave of figures which feature alternative versions of Harry, Ron, Hermione, and Hagrid, plus a completely exclusive character in the form of Professor Snape!
Each figure in the Funko 5 Star line is expected to retail for around $10.99 when they release this July! Funko is anticipating more licenses joining this line later in the year.
