Including Fiona Goode!
This September, Funko will release a set of Pop Vinyl dolls of some of the characters of the American Horror Story series including characters from season 1 and season 3 (apparently, AHS: Asylum season 2 didn’t get any love). Click thru the gallery to see the dolls that are on the way. Supreme queen Fiona Goode is also getting a doll but the promo image of her doll hasn’t been released yet. I think I need the Rubber Man from season 1, how about you? The Myrtle Snow character from AHS: Coven is the cutest tho. I love!!
The TV Guide
In between loads of laundry and intermittent packing, I managed to finish binge-watching Sons of Anarchy season 6. About a week ago, I started watching the first season of SoA and it’s taken me a few days to get thru all 6 seasons but I finally finished the series (thus far) last night and man, am I exhausted. For years my friends have been telling me how good this show is and now I’m a true believer. Sons of Anarchy is such a compelling, entertaining and wholly engrossing series, I cannot believe it’s taken me this long to jump on board. With the 7th and final season debuting later this year, I wanted to see what all the fuss is about … and now I know. Having watched all 6 seasons of SoA, I have some thoughts on the show that I’d like to share below. More »
Do you wanna buy a snowman?
In an effort by the Funko toy company to take possession of all of my money, we learn today that a line of pop vinyl dolls based on characters from Frozen are on the way.

Elsa, Anna, Kristoff, Sven and Olaf … there’re all here and, if you can believe it, they’re even CUTER in pop vinyl form. More »

April 21, 1989
25 years ago today, Nintendo released the Game Boy compact video game system and revolutionized the world of video gaming. On April 21, 1989, the original Game Boy was unleashed upon the world and almost immediately, a generation of video game fans took a giant leap forward into the realm of portable gaming technology. Since that time, the Game Boy has evolved into different, smaller versions (Game Boy Pocket, Game Boy Light, Game Boy Color, Game Boy Advance, Game Boy Advance SP) … eventually morphing into the Nintendo 3DS … but back when the portable gaming system was first released, the world was changed forever. Homage to the Game Boy must be paid. More »

Have you ever wondered what your favorite bands and music artists would look like if they were LEGO characters? Well, thanks to LEGO enthusiast and photographer Adly Syairi Ramly, we now know. If you can believe it, Ramly photographed and edited all of the LEGO minifigures featured in the gallery presented here using only his iPhone 5S. Not only has he managed to expertly portray these famous musicians in LEGO form but he was also able to turn his photos into works of art. You can follow Ramly HERE on Instagram which features many more of his LEGO photo creations. I think The Smiths photo is my fave but, really, all of his photos are remarkable. Enjoy.

Meet the Hand of Adonis
Miley Cyrus, that scandalous little skamp, shared a couple photos on her official Twitter profile that show off an interesting new toy. At first glance, the photos that Miley shared don’t look too risqué right off the bat … but once you realize what it is exactly that Miley is showing off, well, I guess the photos become really … er … interesting. Miley got her hands on a sex toy called the Hand of Adonis that is used for sexual gratification by insertion and as you can see in the photos below, she seems really happy to show off her new toy. The photos aren’t really NSFW and nothing sexual is shown but the item description of this sex toy may not be for “the faint of heart”. More »

I WANT THEM ALL
Last month we learned that The Simpsons is planning to get animated in LEGO form and today we learn that the characters from Back to the Future are getting turned into fun LEGO playsets. As you may recall, I picked up a few LEGO playsets last year and had the best time putting them together so it’s CLEAR that the LEGO corporation wants me to buy more playsets to build. The massive success of The LEGO Movie should do much to help inspire sales but if you just look at how cute Marty McFly and Doc Brown look in LEGO form, I think that’s all the advertisement required. The DeLorean playset was released last Summer but the Marty pickup truck set and the Back to the Future III train time machine set are due out later this year. OMG. I’m not kidding when I say I want them all. I’ve been such a LEGO fan my whole life, I’m such an easy sell on stuff like this. These Back to the Future LEGOs are great, right? Does this look like something you’d like to pick up (er, for your kids)?
