Greetings Pop fans! This is Matthew and once again, I have another Pop figure I want to share with you. This new figure I have is a Rocket Raccoon figure from Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy.
However, according to the box, this Rocket is based on the Disney California Adventures ride Guardians of the Galaxy – Mission: BREAKOUT!. Originally, this ride was called The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror before it shut down and got a Marvel make over. In this ride, Rocket has to save his team from The Collector.
I bought this Disney Exclusive item from the shopDisney.com website. I used my Disney points to redeem for a $20 giftcard and I got this without spending a penny.
Good news for Guardians of the Galaxy fans! According to IGN, the “halted” movie Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 3 will indeed be using James Gunn’s script. In a interview with Star Lord actor Chris Pratt with MTV, Pratt commented that they plan to do the movie according to James Gunn. He also mentioned that he still cares about him and he believes it’s important for the team to stick together like the Guardians and get the job done.
However, it’s still unknown to who will direct the movie.
If you don’t know why Disney fired James Gunn, Disney found James Gun’s tweets and deemed them inappropriate due to not being civil and polite. In results, Disney fired James Gunn and this caused the movie to be put on pause on production. James Gunn is currently working with Warner Bros and plans to do a Suicide Squad movie in 2021.
Remember DC’s movie Suicide Squad that premiered in 2016? I got some interesting news to share in regards to this movie. It has been announced yesterday that filmmaker James Gunn has joined with Warner Bros and DC comics and will be involved with the upcoming, planned movie Suicide Squad 2. This turn of events also persuaded actor Dave Bautista to wanting to join the movie and wants to work with James Gunn.
If you don’t why this is a big deal, I will tell you real brief about James Gunn and Disney. James Gunn was in charge and help create the iconic Marvel Cinematic Films Guardians of the Galaxy and the sequel Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. The plans for a third movie is currently on hold since Disney fired and dismissed James Gunn for making controversial jokes in his Twitter about rape and pedophilia. With this dilemma, the third movie is on break and Disney is trying to decide to either go with the script James Gunn made, find a new director and rewrite the story or scrap it. This startling news has even led Drax actor Dave Bautista to stand up against Disney and is willing to leave the team.
Set to the all-new sonic backdrop of Awesome Mixtape #2, Marvel Studios’ “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2” continues the team’s adventures as they traverse the outer reaches of the cosmos. The Guardians must fight to keep their newfound family together as they unravel the mystery of Peter Quill’s true parentage. Old foes become new allies and fan-favorite characters from the classic comics will come to our heroes’ aid as the Marvel Cinematic Universe continues to expand.
*Warning: this will have spoilers. This will be my first ever spoiler review and it will be about a Marvel film.
You probably seen this in hobby stores or game stores like GameStop, Box Lunch or even Hot Topic. They are called Pop figures and thanks to the company Funko, many characters from video games, cartoons, anime, comics and other pop culture genre have been converted to these bobble head like figures. Some actually are bobble heads while others just have a stiff head. Think of these as the bobble heads from sports like the NFL and NBA, but instead of collecting your favorite athletes, you’re collecting your favorite characters from Marvel, Dragon Ball, Batman or even Rugrats. I will be sharing you my collection and I will give you a brief description about how I got them.
