The 22 Absolute Worst Funko Pops You Should Definitely Never Buy


Everything has a Funko Pop toy! Okay, not everything. There's actually some seriously glaring film omissions we're not okay with. That said, far too many things have a Pop Funko toy and, while a lot of them are really cool collectibles, some of them are just plain bad.

Whether it's a poor design choice, super creepy eyes, or simply a Pop that makes you wonder who decides which franchise get immortalized in vinyl, not everything Funko does is a home run. Still, there's some fun to be had with the worst Funko has to offer. At least, I hope there is. Otherwise, why did I spend my time tracking down what I consider to be the 22 worst Funko Pops toys ever released?

Take a look at the bad, the worse, and the ugly to see just what kinds of choices Funko makes sometimes. After all, for every Chris Jericho holding the List of Jericho, there's a dead-eyed Goofy from the Disney collection. Sound off in the comments with your favorite bad Pops, and let's all enjoy the ridiculousness.

MLB The Show 19 Full Cover Revealed After Bryce Harper Signs $330 Million Contract

about X hours ago from

In one of the biggest contracts in sports history, slugger Bryce Harper today signed a 13-year, $330 million contract with the MLB's Philadelphia Phillies. Harper was previously announced as the cover star of Sony's MLB The Show 19, but because he was a free agent then, the cover was only a placeholder that showed Harper in a nondescript hoodie. Now that he's signed his record-breaking deal, Sony has released the official cover art showing Harper in his Phillies garb.

Harper's deal, which has yet to be officially confirmed by the Phillies and is pending a physical, also includes a no-trade clause and no opt-out clause, so we could continue to see Harper playing for the Phillies until 2031. In the deal, Harper makes an average of $24.4 million per season. While massive, it doesn't even crack the top ten of the MLB's highest annual salary list.

Switch's Resident Evil Games Are More Expensive Than Expected

about X hours ago from

Capcom is bringing three classic Resident Evil games--Resident Evil HD Remaster, 0, and 4--to Nintendo Switch on May 20. All three are now available to pre-purchase through the Eshop, but as the digital store reveals, they're a bit pricier than you might expect.

All three Resident Evil games are listed on Switch's storefront for $30 / £30 apiece. Not only is that price tag surprising considering each game is several generations old by this point, it is $10 more than the titles cost on other platforms.

This certainly isn't the first time the Switch versions of some games have turned out to be more expensive than on other consoles; since the system launched, many publishers have charged slightly more for Switch games to offset the cost of manufacturing cartridges. Such was the case with Rime and LA Noire, among others.

Fortnite Season 8 Update Week 1 Secret Battle Star Location (Discovery Challenge Guide)

Season 8 of Fortnite is officially underway, and a lot has changed in the hit battle royale game. There are new areas of the island to explore, as well as a slew of new skins and cosmetics to unlock.

But as they say, the more things change, the more they stay the same, and that holds especially true for Fortnite. Just as in seasons past, Epic Games will be rolling out new challenges to complete every week in Season 8. Clear these and you'll be rewarded with Battle Stars, which in turn will level your Battle Pass up and unlock the new Season 8 skins and rewards.

On top of that, if you finish all of the challenges from a given week, you'll complete one of Fortnite's Discovery challenges--this season's equivalent of the Snowfall challenges from Season 7. Each Discovery challenge you complete will reward you with a special loading screen, which contains a clue pointing you to a free item hiding somewhere around the island.

Last Chance To Download February's PlayStation Plus Freebies (PS4, PS3, Vita)

about X hours ago from

The next group of March PlayStation Plus free games will be live in less than a week, which means it's your last chance to grab the freebies being offered in February. February's batch of free PlayStation Plus games will be the last to include PS3 and Vita games, so it'll be only PS4 titles offered from here on out. However, Sony did increase cloud storage for PS Plus members from 10GB to 100GB this month as a perk. And you'll still be able to play any PS3 and Vita games in your library as long as you're a PS Plus member.

February's available free games include For Honor and Hitman: The Complete First Season as the two PS4 exclusives. Gunhouse and Rogue Aces are available for both PS4 and Vita. Meanwhile, you can also download Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots for PS3, and Divekick is available for both PS3 and Vita.

While March has only two free games on its lineup for PS Plus members, they're two games you don't want to miss. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered and The Witness will replace February's offers on March 5 and be free to download for PS Plus members until April 1.

Fortnite Season 8 Lets You Complete Challenges With Friends

about X hours ago from

Epic Games has released the next big update for Fortnite, which launches Season 8. The new season adds several gameplay tweaks, new map areas and weapons, and updates the battle royale game with a brand-new Battle Pass. To help you finish its numerous tasks--which offer more than 100 rewards, including new skins--Fortnite's new update now allows you to complete challenges with your friends.

To get some help with the Season 8 Battle Pass' daily and weekly challenges, enable Party Assist prior to jumping into a Fortnite match. Once you do, every party member in your group, including you, will be able able to contribute to the overall progress for the selected challenge. However, Party Assist will not rope in players who are added to groups to fill in empty spaces during matchmaking. Party Assist won't work in larger multiplayer modes, such as Team Rumble, either. For exact details on Party Assist, check out Season 8's patch notes.

As stated before, Season 8 adds numerous other adjustments to Fortnite. Perhaps the most notable are the changes to Fortnite island, which sees the introduction of a new locations, such as a volcano, Sunny Steps, and Lazy Lagoon. The volcano is especially dangerous, as it brings lava to Fortnite. Lava is bouncy but harmful to touch, and it will cause hot air to billow from certain vents which can launch players into the sky.
