You may know Funko Pop! figures from the toy aisle, but in May there will be a reason to hit the comic book shop if you’re a fan of the big-headed and pint-sized stars.

It’s a simple twist but it’s one that should get the attention of a new collectors.
Marty McFly would be proud.
Nike and the Michael J. Fox Foundation revealed on Tuesday a fund-raising drawing where 89 pairs of self-lacing Nike Mag shoes will be given away. The shoes are, of course, a reality first envisioned in Back to the Future II.

The latest Profiles in History Hollywood Auction begins on Wednesday with more than 1,700 lots of everything you’d expect to see — and plenty more.
If you’re a movie or music fan, there’s plenty to collect — but you may not have seen items like the ones found in Garageland.
Take for instance the Star Warhol Series — a lineup of prints that mesh the iconic worlds of Star Wars and Andy Warhol. The Campbell’s Soup can is R2-D2 above, for example, while the pop artist’s famed style is also seen in other pieces from the Los Angeles-based company founded by a street artist known as Xray back in 2010.
Movies aren’t the only pieces to be found as there are also concert posters to be had, too.
If you’re like Buzz, you’ve probably seen Funko‘s ReAction figures in chain stores and marveled at some of the quirky inclusions in the various lines.
It’s an ongoing series of 3.75-inch figures in a distinct style reminiscent of Kenner‘s original Star Wars toys right down to the line’s logo and the clamshell packaging.
The difference, though?
When it comes to the sports world, there’s plenty of licensed merchandise for fans to use in their daily lives when they’re not focused on baseball, football or whatever their pastime may be.

What is it? It’s a USB car charger — but what it really is a Flux Capacitor that will transform your vehicle into a time machine. Or something. Keep reading to see a few more cool things that can geek up your day …
With the Chicago Cubs trying to make a World Series run, the memorable scene from Back to the Future Part II where the team wins the World Series has been on some sports fans’ minds.

But, if you’re a collector of the stars of the film and want autographs of the film’s top names? You’ll need a DeLorean with a Flux Capacitor.
