A new Doctor on the way for the BBC’s Doctor Who can only mean one thing: fresh merchandise to go with the new look attached to the whole new incarnation of the universe’s favorite Time Lord. Jodie Whittaker’s Thirteenth Doctor is no exception—and her first batch of toys is surprisingly imminent.
Adventure Time already came to Mojang’s survival game/block building phenom Minecraft last year, and now the animated series is returning the favor with a special episode that sees Finn and friends having fun in a much more angular version of the Land of Ooo than they’re used to.

In the most inevitable convergence, Jeff Goldblum has now met his Sexy Ian Malcolm Funko Pop. And his reaction is, well... it involves some stroking.
The very first Funko Pop I ever bought was a Locutus of Borg figurine with a questionable paint job on its silvery armor that was meant as a birthday gift for my father. With my dad’s 60th birthday quickly approaching, I’m reminded that the tiny replica of Patrick Stewart has been sitting in my closet, undelivered,…

Case in point, the company announced like, a hojillion toys at the UK Toy Fair yesterday, and we want…
