We’re getting ever closer to the release of Ready Player One next month, and that means we’re finally starting to see some merchandise. Specifically- the AMAZING Funko Pop Vinyl collection being released for the film.
Seriously, this is a fabulous set of figures INCLUDING THE KEYS that make such an important appearance in the source material book by Ernie Cline. These releases are exclusive to the New York Toy Fair going on right now, with some WalMart exclusive figures, and one from Target, too.
Let’s check them out:
Here’s the thing, also- in this set we’ve seen from Entertainment Weekly, there is no Aech. HOWEVER- in the original solicits, there *IS* an Aech. So never fear, the High Five will be together again. And oh my goodness I need these RIGHT NOW.
Bleeding Cool News Editor Mary Anne Butler (Mab, for short) has been part of the fast-paced world of journalism since she was 15, getting her start in album reviews and live concert coverage for a nationally published (print) music magazine. She eventually transitioned to online media, writing for such sites as UGO/IGN, ComicsOnline, Geek Magazine, Ace of Geeks, Aggressive Comix (where she is still Editor-in-Chief), and most recently Bleeding Cool.
Over the past 10 years, she’s built a presence at conventions across the globe as a cosplayer (occasionally), photographer (constantly), panelist and moderator (mostly), and reporter (always).
Interviews, reviews, observations, breaking news, and objective reporting are the name of the game for the founder of Harkonnen Knife Fight, a Dune-themed band with an international presence.
Though she be but little, she is fierce. #MabTheProfessional
