Join the Fan Expo Scavenger Hunt 2014!!

It's that time again. Fan Expo is nearly here and Christina Articulates  and I have decided create a little game...and we want everyone to play along. We've created a simple scavenger hunt to pass the time waiting in line an celebrate what makes a convention worthwhile.
We’d love to see people play along this weekend and post their own photos using #fanexpohunt (Facebook, Instagram, Tumblr, Pinterest, whatever!) and we might use our favourites (credited of course!) on recaps posts on Christina Articulates and Talking Tiny Toys! Link us to your photos and follow us on social media to see what others post (Twitter & Tumblr). Be creative and join us!

Do you have a booth at Fan Expo this year? Drop either of us a line and we'll stop by to chat!

Rocket Raccoon (Guardians of the Galaxy) Funko Mystery Minis

As promised, today's review features a member of the rag-tag group of space rangers who took the summer by storm. Who says you can't make a successful blockbuster with a talking raccoon and a tree voiced by Vin Diesel? Guardians of the Galaxy proved that with a decent script, entertaining characters and a kick-ass soundtrack (and let's face it, the charisma of Chris Pratt) even the weirdest ideas can make a great movie. I almost cried over a tree! How is that possible? 

Of course, Funko is right on top of things and released a new line of Guardians of the Galaxy mystery minis that I was helpless to resist.  Who did I get?

*Insert epic 70s soundtrack here*

King Joffrey (Game of Thrones) Funko Mystery Minis

And the winner is King Joffrey!

Funko has taken my money yet again, this time with their Game of Thrones Mystery Minis. Edition 1 (and I can only hope there's an edition 2) brings us many of our favourite characters from the hit HBO show--Eddard Stark, Jon Snow, Dany, Drogo, dragons. But no hero for me. When I opened up my little red box, the bane of Westeros stared back at me...and I'm quite happy about it. Ladies and Gentleman, King Joffrey Lannister Baratheon!
