Are Stan Lee Funko POP! Collectibles Still Available?

Stan Lee Funko POP! Collectibles. Maybe you saw the writing on the wall that one of the most creative, inventive, inspiring individuals on the planet, Stan Lee, was nearing the end of the line? Or maybe we ALL saw it, but refused to believe that such an iconic and amazing person like Lee, could ever truly leave us?! But just for shits & giggles, if you didn’t have the foresight to start picking up Stan Lee Funko POP! Collectibles sometime ago and now would like to get one, what would you have to pay, now that Mr. Lee has sadly left us?

The Gunslinger Movie Dark Tower Collectibles

The Gunslinger Movie is what many folks have come to call, the latest Stephen King series-brought-to-theaters, The Dark Tower. And why? Well if you haven’t managed to keep up with movie trailers, especially during the Summer months, when we’re pummeled week after week with tent-pole blockbuster films, the Dark Tower trailers have been nothing short of phenomenal. Matthew McConaughey as ‘The Man in Black’ and Idris Elba as The Gunslinger, Roland Deschain are absolutely stunning in their roles, but Idris as The Gunslinger is especially moving!

the gunslinger movie

Real quick, before you move on, and just in case you didn’t know what the film was about, here is the ‘elevator pitch’ version. Ready…GO!

The Gunslinger, Roland Deschain, roams an Old West-like landscape where “the world has moved on” in pursuit of the man in black. Also searching for the fabled Dark Tower, in the hopes that reaching it will preserve his dying world.

Here is the latest trailer (as of this post) that will help you to better understand why many continue to refer to this film as The Gunslinger Movie:

Yep! The Gunslinger Movie…er…The Dark Tower, looks absolutely stunning as a whole, but the parts where we see The Gunslinger in action just leave me stunned with awe. The depiction of the Gunslinger on the big screen has changed my perception of Roland Deschain in the iconic Stephen King series 180 degrees and I love it!

If its not already noticeable, I will readily admit that I have definitely become enamored with The Gunslinger, and the legends and lore that come along with this character, including these newly released toys and collectibles in advance of the film’s release:

Sixth Scale First Order Stormtrooper

There were sooooo many awesome takeaways from Star Wars The Force Awakens but none have been able to stand their ground against the First Order Stormtrooper and Finn square off outside Maz Kanata’s establishment.

[Possible Spoilers]

via GIPHY

If you remember, while meeting with Maz Kanata, our hapless heroes, Han Solo, Chewie, Rey and Finn are caught in the middle of a First Order attack. In the chaos, Finn confronts a First Order Stormtrooper, who, upon shouting ‘TRAITOR’ to Finn, swings into a action some sort of electrified staff, which he used to immediately pummel Finn into near unconsciousness. It was a scene that immediately captured the adoration of Star Wars fans all over.

via GIPHY

In response to excitement and enthusiasm surrounding this one-of-a-kind fight scene, Hot Toys has just recently announced their exclusive First Order Stormtrooper and Finn Sixth Scale Figure set.

Never before has so much attention and respect been given to a ‘lowly’ Stormtrooper until now and for good reason. This First Order Stormtrooper displayed more ‘badassery’ than we have ever seen in the Star Wars franchise.

The highly-accurate Finn sixth scale collectible figure is specially crafted based on the image of John Boyega in the film featuring a newly developed head sculpt, finely tailored outfit, LED light-up lightsaber, detailed weapons, and a hexagonal figure stand with the Resistance’s emblem.

Nerf Gun Wars Just Got Serious

Buying a nerf gun for your kids may of just got a little more complicated. Sure, you’re still just buying a toy nerf gun, that shoots ‘solid, spongy cellular material’ that over the years we’ve come to classifying as a ‘nerf’ projectile, but through the innovation and creativity of Hasbro’s NERF RIVAL, these ‘toys’ have taken on a more ‘realistic’ and satisfying look (and FEEL!).

Laser tag was cool back in the day, even with its nuances and quirks, but it was the closest thing to really playing ‘war’ against one another….that is, until they came up with the concept of paint balling, which took this notion to a completely new plane of existence. But paint ball fights needed a venue or special location dedicated to the sport because of the ‘mess’ it obviously creates. And somewhere ‘in-between’ we had nerf.

Brief History of NERF

Nerf was a toy brand created by Parker Brothers but is now currently owned by Hasbro. Most of the toys are a variety of foam-based weaponry, but there are also several different types of Nerf toys, such as balls for sports like football, basketball, baseball, and others. The most notable of the toys are the dart guns (referred to by Hasbro as “blasters”) that shoot ammunition made from Nerf foam. This is what the majority of us may relate to. But like everything, change happens, and most of the time it makes things better…

Extreme Lego Spaceship Construction

I think we all went through the ‘Lego’ stage at some point in our short lives, most of us when we were younger. Old habits die hard (or maybe haven’t died at all but flourished!), as you will see in our gallery of extreme lego building!

Never thought what was once a pastime back when I was a youth could amount to anything remotely close to this level of complexity and ingenuity. It does get me wondering, however, what any of the individuals who engineered any of these lego spaceship beasts actually do for a living. The results may surprise us.
