Disney's The Nutcracker and the Four Realms is coming to theaters this November, and thanks to the folks at Funko, some characters from the new version of the classic tale are coming to the famed Pop! Vinyl format. Hitting stores just in time for the 2018 holiday season, the Sugar Plum Fairy and Clara are up for pre-order now via my friends at Entertainment Earth. Check out the latest trailer for The Nutcracker below...

These Pops are Mean Ones, Mr. Grinch!

This November, Dr. Seuss' The Grinch is back on the big screen in an all-new animated adventure from Universal Studios and Illumination. Of course, what's a movie without some cool merch, right? There's toys on the way from Just Play, and Funko is in on the action as well with a host of Pop! Vinyl figures based on characters from the film. There's The Grinch, the Young Grinch, Cindy-Lou Who and Max the Dog - all available for pre-order via my friends at Entertainment Earth. Of course, we can't just do standard... there's plenty of retailer variants as well.

I may have mentioned this in passing before, but this fall will see the release of an all-new wave of Holiday Funko Pop! Vinyl figures... and yes, more Star Wars is in the mix. Of course these are technically bobbleheads (thanks to licensing) but cool just the same. There's festive new versions of Chewbacca, R2-D2, C-3PO, Darth Vader (there's a Chase version as well) and Yoda. All of these new figures are up for pre-order via my friends at Entertainment Earth. I see them as new-school holiday decor, and early additions to my 2018 Holiday Wish Guide here at The Rock Father™ Magazine.

It's a big day for Transformers as new toys from Paramount Pictures' Bumblebee Movie just hit pre-order (see them all here) and a whole bunch of new items from Cartoon Network's Transformers: Cyberverse just hit the streets. But that's not all - as some other items got into the mix including new plush keychains and an anticipated addition to the preschool-geared Rescue Bots line. My friends at Entertainment Earth just put them up for pre-order, so lets take a look...

We're just a few months out from the Christmas release of Paramount Pictures' new Bumbleebee film, and now Hasbro is gearing up to start rolling out the companion toys. A sizable assortment of Transformers just went up for pre-order via my friends at Entertainment Earth and among the new items are the following from the new Bumblebee line.  While the traditional transforming action figures are the core of the collection, Hasbro continues to emphasize role play, large-scale feature figures and their Vision AR line that first surfaced as an Iron Man helmet during the product launch for Avengers: Infinity War. Check out the new toys below, and note the character names alongside their pre-production code names (used to prevent potential spoilers during the pre-announcement stages). See a full gallery of photos on The Rock Father™ Facebook Page, and get all of the details below...

For those wondering why Ellie Sattler wasn't released during the first wave of vintage-styled Jurassic Park Pop! Vinyls from Funko, she's finally rolling in! As the latest release in the Funko Pop! Rides series, the Jurassic Park Jeep with Ellie Sattler just went up for pre-order today via my friends at Entertainment Earth. Following the release of the Star Wars: The Last Jedi Vice Admiral Holdo Pop!, I do believe that this is the second time that a character portrayed by Laura Dern has been given the vinyl treatment.
