New Star Wars Walmart Super Articulated and other Star Wars Stuff

Walmart continues the Super Articulated exclusive line. Even though I will try and steer away from most of these, if they are unreleased characters (like Princess Leia - Force Awakens) or if they are my favorites, I may grab a few.

In this lineup, there is Ahsoka Tano, Admiral Ackbar, and General Lando Calrissian. Ackbar was always one of my favorites and the General Calrissian is a really nice figure. 

Also picked up the Seventh Sister/Darth Maul 2 pack from Star Wars Rebels, and the WTH Poe Dameron 2 pack. With all the characters Hasbro didn't do from Force Awakens, why they made a Poe Dameron that they show for .24 seconds at the end of the movie is beyond me. I guess he is popular.

Miraculous Ladybug

I was on a business trip in France when I heard about this show, Miraculous - Tales of Ladybug and Cat Noir. Apparently it is a big craze with teenagers around the world. So I grabbed these for my daughter (and me).  Cool figures in cool suits.

Bif Bang Pow Twilight Zone Series 4

More goodness from Bif Bang Pow. Love these Twilight Zone figures. Such a cool variety and also great crowd characters for dioramas.

Every Man Dies - Not Every Man Really Lives - Funko Pop Braveheart William Wallace

I was a young single lieutenant in the Army when Mel Gibson's Braveheart came out. We went and watched it five times at the movie theaters. That record hasn't been broken since. On our holiday break, we took a MAC flight to England for free and then took a train to Edinburgh, Scotland to see the home of William Wallace and Robert the Bruce.

So what appears before my eyes while scanning for interesting finds at Toys R Us? A William Wallace POP figure from Funko. This property has been neglected across the board.

I haven't purchased any other POPs. Don't plan on it, but this is what my daughter and I saw at a store in the mall a few weeks back. Un....freakin...believable.

Pop Culture League Challenge: Are you Scared?

Keeping with the Halloween theme this October, this week's PCL challenge is Are You Scared? What Frightens You the Most?

You know what scares me the most? Snake people! I could be really witty and say snakes scare me, and people scare me, but really it is just plain old snake people.

What the hell are you talking about, you may be asking.

Since this is a toy collector's blog, the scariest toy I've ever seen that would put me in cardiac arrest if these were real are the Boss Fight Studios Gorgon sisters and their army. These awesome 1:18 (3-3/4 inch) scale action figures from one of the most successful action figure Kickstarters ever.

Check these awesome figures out and imagine running into these at life size in a dark alley.  Hell, in the bright sunlight, I would freak the hell out.

For real though, I hate spiders. Bugs and snakes don't scare me. I hate being in tall buildings, especially in New York City. I went up to the Top of the Rock at Rockefeller Center this past spring and couldn't wait to go back down after snapping a photo or two.

Check out these other fearful things from our fellow Leaguers!

Alexis hates spiders. So do I. So do I.

With that...I think I won't reveal anyone else's fears. You'll  have to check them out yourself. They are chilling.
