pop-preacher-social

On the heels of Preacher‘s fiery — and much-talked-about — television debut, Funko has unveiled its first Pop! vinyl figures. At least we hope they’re only the first, because Tulip O’Hare is nowhere to be seen.

We will, however, get a cigarette-smoking Jesse Custer, a heavy-drinking Cassidy, and an Arseface who’s … just too cute for words. Who’d have guessed we’d ever write that?

tony-stark1-social

We’ve seen more than our fair share of Iron Man action figures (seriously, let’s dial just a smidge), but Tony Stark? That’s as rare as a unicorn … a bearded, wisecracking unicorn. However, Bandai is about to change that with this upcoming release from the S.H. Figuarts Iron Man 3 line.

Yes, that Marvel Studios sequel came out three years ago, but we’re not complaining, because instead of the umpteenth armored variant, we’re getting the billionaire philanthropist playboy himself!
