Funko Infects Playmobil

I heard through the grapevine that Playmobil will be creating franchised figures, including Ghostbusters and Dr. Who!?  Wow, cool!  I dug a little deeper and found out that we have Funko to thank for Playmobil's franchise themed figures.

Now for the bad news, the figures will be 200% bigger than normal Playmobil figures, sold as figures alone without playsets,  and will retail for more at $14.99.  So, they will not be in scale with other themes and will cost more. BOOOOOO!  Take it away Pixel Dan!

Skip to 2:27-3:14 for a look at the Playmobil-Funko abominations.

What do you think?  Do you like the looks of the new Playunko figures?  Or did Playmobil sell their soul to Funko?  Tell me in the comments below!

Pop Culture League Challenge: Are you scared?

Last week, the League was all about Zombies, and we’re going to continue with the Halloween theme this week with a topic suggested by Calvin’s Canadian Cave of Cool. This week’s challenge to the Pop Culture League is…  

Are you scared?

What frightens you the most?
What frightens me the most?  This thing...

This ghost still haunts my nightmares.  The story is a bit silly, but still quite disturbing.  For some reason this image, of all the frightening images from the Scary Stories series, has been cemented into my psyche.  Stephen Gammell is a genius, a dark dark genius.

Does anyone else remember these books?  What images or stories messed you up?  Tell me in the comments below!

What scares other League member?  Find out below:

A Magic Puppy, a.k.a. A Halloween Puppy

Are you looking for a terrible movie to watch for Halloween?  I dug up a real stinker on Netflix, The Magic Puppy! Or is it The Halloween Puppy?  The movie just can't seem to make up its.  I technically wouldn't even consider this a Halloween movie.  More like a horrible movie that happens to take place on Halloween.

The movie reminds me of Cool Cat Saves The Kids, and if you have seen that then you know exactly what you're in for.  Enjoy?

Halloween Minecraft 2016: Hagatha's Witch Hut

I love the cackle of the Minecraft Witch!  

So, I decided to bag me a witch by tagging one and named her Hagatha.  She nearly killed me with a poison potion, but I was able to lure her onto a walled in property I had prepared.  I later had to lure her into a trap to contain her whilst I built a fine witch hut and cauldron area.  Now I can stop by anytime and say hi to my neighbor, only she's not very appreciative.  The old hag hit me with a potion of slowness while I was sheering my sheep.  How rude! 

Fun fact, did you know if a Villager is truck by lightning they are transformed into a Witch?  That's a rock fact!
