PiercingMetal Thoughts: I love, love, love the Funko Pop figures and am still kicking myself for missing all of the KISS ones that came out a couple of years ago. I didn’t realize that they were limited runs but now that I know I am definitely grabbing myself a set of these Babymetal ones and I don’t care what you think about this group because I really get a kick out of it. Now let’s just add about how awesome these Funko Pop! figures are as well, because they just are. I know so many people who are buying these and I see a ton of them at Toy Fair when I go exploring that convention. These editions are def worth adding to your collection and even more so if you are rallying behind Babymetal and the Fox God. What do you think of these? Will you buy them? I wonder if they will make some for Ghost. That would be insane. Before we go please check out some additional product photos of these three awesome Pop! Rocks creations.

I will start off with the two-pack figure sets. Some really cool ones here and I am prepping my own credit card for purchase mode as soon as I see them around.

The new Marvel Studios sure to be blockbuster “Avengers: Age Of Ultron” has been out for a week now and I figured that it was as good a time as any to showcase some of the stuff that we found at the nearby Toys R Us store in terms of the toys based on the film. Hasbro has really been on point with their lines for these properties which we were lucky enough to get an advance peek at during this years Toy Fair. Dig in.

In celebration of the Star Wars saga being released in a Hi-Definition digital format for the very first time, Hasbro Toys have issued six collectible action figure packages with each of them focusing on the various films across the franchise. Each set includes four distinct action figures related to that particular film and below you can see the six individual boxes as they stand on the shelves.
