Here it is, the first good Funko

Funko figurines, all ballooned heads and lifeless eyes, rarely don't suck. Their appeal is obvious enough. Funko has its tendrils in every corner of pop culture, and people want memorabilia from things they like. It makes sense, disproporti...

Good God the Detective Pikachu amiibo is huge

When I read that the Detective Pikachu amiibo that accompanied the game was huge, I sort of brushed it off. But after obtaining a figure from Nintendo today, I was in awe at the size of this plastic rat. Adorned with a great map aesthetic b...

Detective Pikachu looks like a wild ride

I haven't been following the development of Detective Pikachu too closely, and for good reason; I want to be utterly surprised when I play it for the first time. That's not to say that I won't catch the occasional clip, and as we enter...
