Jem and the Holograms is a legendary property that still has yet to see a truly proper relaunch. The live-action film wasn't right, and while Hasbro has licensed it out for high-end dolls and a pretty cool comic from IDW Publishing, it still feels like there's a lot of untapped potential to be had. Now Funko is testing the waters with a pair of Pop! Vinyl figures that represent one of the greatest rivalries in the history of animated bands. Jem will be available soon along with Pizzazz Gabor of The Misfits, and both of these figures are available for pre-order now via my affiliates at Entertainment Earth!

Check out the full lineup below, including the collector-focused Marvel Legends line...
You may have an Optimus or a Megatron toy somewhere, but you need these new ones. Trust us. The Transformers Generations Siege Voyager Wave 1 Case does not disappoint! From Hasbro, both leaders are covered in battle-damage, include 2 weapons each, and have an exceptional range of articulation in their highly detailed robot modes. The Cybertronian vehicles look a little bit like some previous Earth forms but are different enough to be a lot of fun. Optimus and Megatron borrow heavily from classic toy and TV appearances, giving you what may be two of the most amazing figures yet. And they can power up with other smaller Siege Battle Masters, Weaponizers, and Micromasters (sold separately)! Don’t delay – pre-order from Entertainment Earth and transport them to your area via space bridge today!
It’s time to decorate! Not only is Wade Wilson returning to theaters for the holidays in Once Upon a Deadpool, but he can stop by your place, too. The chainsaw-wielding, chimichanga-noshing Merc with a Mouth is an excellent Marvel Legends 12-Inch Deadpool Action Figure. You even get Headpool, the flying propeller-beanie zombie head! This is a heck of a nice gift, an excellent desk decoration, and a terrific way to subtly hint what you’d like to go see in theaters in a few weeks. And he can sit next to you in the car! Of course, if this figure doesn't strike your fancy, you could always check out the entire selection of Deadpool toys and collectibles at Entertainment Earth. So... how about that new trailer?

PUMA and Hasbro are coming together for a new Transformers-themed collection, which means that I will likely be rockin' some Optimus Prime-inspired footwear this winter.

Styles for men and kids will arrive this December as a Foot Locker exclusive, just in-time for the release of Bumblebee in theaters.
