Funko Pops… everywhere… save yourselves… it’s too late for us… Bobblegeddon!
Whether you’re a masked vigilante or a deranged crime clown, you need a notebook. Where else would you jot down details of suspicious neighbourhood activity or scrawl city-threatening schemes in ink as green as your hair? GB eye’s new range of DC Comics notebooks (RRP £5.99 each) meets that need. Choose between the iconic torsos of Batman and Wonder Woman – or perhaps you fancy the evil grin of The Dark Knight’s Joker? Also available: Suicide Squad’s Harley Quinn and a camera-toting Joker from The Killing Joke. All are hardback, spiral-bound and ever so neatly lined.
New toys from Star Wars movies tend to raise questions, and these The Last Jedi Pop! vinyl figures (price £9.99 each; product codes H4898, H4899, H4900, H4901, H4903, H4905, H4906, H4908, H4909, H4910) are no exception. Why is Snoke wearing a kitsch gold dressing gown? Has Luke nabbed Darth Maul’s lightsaber? Did Funko just recycle the Cassian Andor Rogue One figure to make Poe Dameron? Newbies like Rose Tico, a Porg, a Praetorian Guard and an Executioner Stormtrooper are also here, along with new looks for Rey, Kylo Ren and Finn. Loads more are available.
The Last Jedi merchalanche continues with these Lego buildable figures (£19.99 each; product codes H1300, H1302, H1303). From left to right we have a TIE Fighter pilot, Chewbacca and a Praetorian Guard. Building time: anywhere between 25 minutes and an hour and a half, depending on whether you find Lego about as much fun as assembling flatpack furniture. Neat touch: Chewie’s crossbow actually fires! A new, lightsaber-wielding Rey figure is also available, but to be honest after slaving over three of these we lost the will to live.
Ever fancied having a drink with Wonder Woman? She’s a little busy fighting criminals and monsters at the moment, so she’ll get back to you when she can. In the meantime, why don’t you down a shot or two in tribute, with this pack of four Wonder Woman shot glasses (RRP £9.99) Our favourite of the playful and retro designs features a close-up of Wonder Woman’s smiling face, her red lipstick popping against a black and white background. Catch us as we swoon, Diana!
There’s room for some raw stallion’s heart and a couple of Sansa’s delicious lemon cakes inside this Game Of Thrones tin lunchbox (FPI price £6.99; product code H2979); the work of Half Moon Bay, it features a handy map of Westeros on the lid. Alternatively you could always use it for storing foreign coinage, miscellaneous screws, or trophies hacked from the dead bodies of your enemies.
After devouring the contents of your lunchbox, you will need something to swill it all down with, which is where this Game Of Thrones glass tankard (FPI price £11.99; product code H2967) comes in. Capable of holding 500ml of grog, it features the traditional greetings “All men must serve” and “All men must die” (in both English and High Valyrian) in gold lettering, and feels pretty darn sturdy. Please note: mead not included.
This glow-in-the-dark, mega scale Mumm-Ra figure (FPI price £34.99; product code F6422) is impressively detailed, but two flaws prevent him from being a truly accurate representation of ThunderCats’s scourge of Third Earth. Firstly, there are no disgusting tendrils of spit dangling from his mouth. Secondly, he doesn’t revert into a wizened, mummified form when he spends too long channelling Ancient Spirits of Evil. He’s also definitely not a toy, okay? It says so on the box.
