The case: 2016 Funko Suicide Squad Mystery Minis vinyl figures
The cost: $12 Original cost: $83.88
That was the case Friday morning when the latest images from Sideshow Toys spotlighting its newest (and some past) Premium Format figures arrived in Buzz’s inbox.
They’re premium in size — in the case of Deadpool here 24 inches tall and 14 pounds — and premium in price. But, most importantly, they’re premium in appeal as they are ridiculously detailed in their varying forms.
There are plenty of movies that are probably on the radars of collectors these days, whether it’s the newest sports movie or one of the countless comic book-inspired releases coming soon.
While there’s inevitably plenty to collect for these films before their arrivals, what we see first are the trailers and that gave Buzz an idea … something extra that gets ’em buzzing. Up first is Suicide Squad, a DC Comics-inspired creation arriving on Aug. 5 that we’ll see plenty of in the coming months. This trailer arrived yesterday — check it out and tell us what you think.
