Funko Pop! Feeds Your 80s Nostalgia With She-Ra, TMNT, Robocop, & More!

Our Adorable Past

Available in the next few months from Funko are a slew of 80s-themed vinyl Pop! figures. Translated to Jill speak that means, I'm gonna go broke. Check out the designs they've come up with for the Masters of the Universe crew, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, and more. If I have one qualm with the new figures it's that poor She-Ra was given tiny feel like Daenerys from Game of Thrones who, I can tell you from experience, leans heavily upon my Drogo Pop! because she's top heavy.

All bow before the altar of Mondo. They always deliver when it comes to inventive, artistically stunning movie posters, and this Black Friday it was no different. Sadly all of their new poster designs—of Back to the Future Part II, Psycho, RoboCop, and (my personal favorite) The Bride of Frankenstein—sold out shortly after being debuted on Mondo's Twitter account, but the images are after the jump for you to admire from afar.

Robocop’s New Suit Doesn’t Look Like Batman Anymore

A couple of months ago, we were shocked and disturbed when images leaked from the set of the upcoming Robocop remake revealed that the cyborg hero's iconic look had been replaced by a black-plated suit strongly resembling Batman's costume in the Christopher Nolan trilogy. We're now happy to find that new concept art has surfaced, indicating that Robocop will, somewhere down the line, get some silver armor that looks more like the original than a generic "super-suit."

The New RoboCop Looks Like Batman Without the Cape and Pointy Ears

Everybody loves Christopher Nolan's Batman movies, right? Ok, maybe not; but can we at least agree that everybody's seen them? Of course we can. It's with that idea in mind that we present you with photos of the armor from the upcoming reboot of RoboCop, which is currently filming in Toronto, and on track to hit theaters next summer. Supposedly the first shots of the new suit, the new movie trades in the rounded chrome plates of 80's RoboCop for a sleeker, black suit that... Wait a second: Didn't that suit come with a cape?

Mini ED-209 Robocop Made From Recycled Metal is Cute Welded to Fearsome

I am nothing if not a fan of mechs, and I am stoked to say that it is a very, very good year for mechs. As if it wasn't good enough already (it is), this mini ED-209 Robocop junkbot is just gravy. A miniscule version of its sophisticated namesake, the mini ED-209 was constructed by TGNsmith out of recycled materials like  an old computer case and some spent propane tanks welded together with some love and ingenuity. The mini ED-209 junkbot actually has a big brother junkbot that weighs over 300 pounds, but this little guy has his own distinct characteristic: He's for sale.
