Every decade or so, you happen to get a glimpse of that one team that flat out dominates the NFL.The last few years, the Seahawks have been that team. For most of their time in the league, this franchise has never sniffed the opportunity to win the Super Bowl. Well not only did they win last year, but it looks like they are favorites again this year. If you had the chance to see them play last year, you'd notice they play an old school, physically dominant brand of football. Putting aside their blowout win against the Broncos, their playoff games that led up to the big game were great. From both their close wins over New Orleans and San Fran, this team gave NFL fans a great viewing experience. Now I am not a Seattle fan, but I do love watching their style of play. This is where I need to mention the DVD released that contains their road to the championship. SEATTLE SEAHAWKS: ROAD TO XLVIII is released by NFL Films/Cinedigm, and it contains their playoff wins, as well as the Super Bowl blowout. Any NFL fan would appreciate this collection, and be able to re-watch years down the road and be reminded how the Seahawks took care of business. 

More Funko Madness!

Did you ever think one day you would see cutesy little toys based on Pulp Fiction? Neither did I. That is how cool Funko is. They take characters from films where you would never imagine toys being made, and they produce these awesome collectibles for adults everywhere. What a great time we live in. 

Anyway, it is no secret that I love this company. Some of the latest collectibles that I feel the need to mention here are none other than Jules and Vince from Pulp Fiction. Just look at them! These guys are a great addition to any movie lover's collection and would look really nice in that "man-cave", or any other place you display your collections! 

Can't you just see these two re-enacting the "Royale with cheese" scene? Haha.

More FUN from FUNKO!

With a company like Funko around, adults (such as myself) have been reliving their childhood pop culture icons through these amazing little collectibles they continuously put out! They are like Willy Wonka for the 30 and above crowd! Alright, let's get right to the point. The purpose of this post is to mention 3 awesome new figures that were released by Funko.

Let's start with...

1.21 gigawatts!

In my time walking the earth, I don't think I've come across a person that dislikes Back To The Future. It sure is one of my all time favorite movies with an iconic character otherwise known as "Marty"! Funko has given all of us that love the film a collectible to commemorate the legendary movie. Just take a close look at him! Everything from his life preserver to his headphones are there. I proudly have him on display among my collectibles and don't think he'll be going down anytime soon. Definitely a keeper...

 Next we have.... The Truffle Shuffle!!

Another beloved film in the hearts of people that grew up in the 80's is The Goonies! Who can forget Chunk, the Truffle Shuffle, and Baby Ruth bars! This little guy here is a collectible for those that are fond of Chunk, and he even comes equipped with a candy bar (Truffle Shuffle not included)! Again, chalk this one up as another memorable figure that Funko has put out.

Last we have...


As a big fan of Kevin Smith's films, this collectible is definitely a great addition. Again, looking closely at this one, from the long hair to the cap, Funko nailed it with this version of "Jay"! For those of us that followed Clerks and the "New Jersey Trilogy", this is one to hold on to!

I'm definitely intrigued as to what Funko will put out next. Until then, I'll be satisfied with these memorable collectibles!
