Funko Mystery Boxes Reviewed!

Image
I don't normally participate in Black Friday and this year was no exception. However, if you're able to wake up buttcrack early to buy Inside Out for 2 bucks at 6 am, then in all seriousness, you're better than me. But honestly, I used to do Black Friday, but I can't anymore. Plus, there just isn't anything that ever catches my eye. Ok, there's that. I'd pay any price to own a Arn Anderson figure with fist pumping action. But nothing else. That is, until yesterday. And even then, I'm a little late.  It's my fault for being late to the party though. But in this case, it still paid off. See, Funko decided to put their all into a fun exclusive with Gamestop and gave us a great reason to wake up early(or in my case, wait three days later) with these amazing Mystery Boxes... Ahhhh....the mysterious allure of the Mystery Box. Remember the scene in UHF where some shmuck on Wheel of Fish gave up their delicious red snapper for a mystery box

Celebrating the 25th Anniversary of Home Alone!

Today marks the 25th anniversary of the beloved family film Home Alone which is not easy to accept. It makes me feel old. I mean, I saw this movie in the theater! But, I guess when I think about it,seeing Masters of the Universe in the theater at age 4 was 28 years ago, so it's not as bad I guess. But still, combined with the thinning hair, and back issues, this doesn't help me feel any younger.  Whatever, I guess everyone gets to that point. Pass the Geritol! Anyway, for most if not all of us, it was love at first sight for Home Alone. We all found a new holiday movie to watch and found a new favorite star in Macauly Culkin. I remember laughing hysterically when seeing it in the theater that year and loving every second! And hey, my mom and older brother(who was at that age of "everything is dumb" phase) loved it too. It was very easy to love this movie. Not only is Home Alone a great family film and Christmas film, but it finally hit me, it's a great

Mail Call From Pop! Pop! It's Trash Culture(Halloween Edition!)

Image
My friend and fellow blogger and all around great human being, Brian Farrell of Pop! Pop! It's Trash Culture! sent me a package of surprising randomness back in April as a kind gesture. Filled with cards, books, toys, magazines and comics. It was a very kind gesture that I still appreciate very much and didn't take for granted. So what happens when he decides to message me and tell me he had another package prepared for me? Oh. Snap. So, after coming home from work, I run into a package from KingTrash himself... Oh yes. Halloween AND Christmas had arrived early. A beautiful bounty filled with happiness and joy. Let's take a gander, shall we? Ahhh...Otho The Obnoxious from Beetlejuice, a Catwoman PVC figure, and the Mummy From Real Ghostbusters. A nice variety of toys that I can keep around just in case I get the flu again and need someone to talk to while I'm delirious. And there's no three things I'd rather talk to while low on energy and hock
