Unless you haven’t been in a toy store for a few years you’ve definitely heard of Shopkins. Created a few years ago from Moose Enterprises, Shopkins started out as tiny objects with faces on them, & 6 seasons later have trading cards, puzzles, posters, board games, Shoppies (dolls for the Shopkins) & even clothes.
Now Moose & Funko will be releasing exclusive POP Shopkins from now to the end of this year, & you can ONLY find them at Walmart. There’re only 6 being sold, priced at $ 7.99 each & are 3-4”.
So all you Shopkins collectors out there be sure to head over to your local Walmart to find these exclusives before they’re all gone.
Like the Shopkins saying goes, “Once you shop… you can’t stop”
Exclusive to certain retailers comes the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Casey Jones POP figure. While no release date is set for this just yet, expect this guy to be popular amongst collectors.
If you’re not familiar with Disney’s Descendants, it was a Disney Channel movie where all the Disney villains were banished to the Isle of the Lost. Here they lived & had children of their own.

Mal the daughter of Maleficent
Evie the daughter of the Evil Queen
Carlos the son of Cruella de Vil
Jay the son of Jafar
With a sequel Disney Channel in the works, short Disney Channel cartoons now playing, a prequel book out & a book that will be released that takes place between Descendants 1 & 2, expect to see more of these guys to come.

It was my sister who first got me into MST3K & we’d watch it then repeat the lines over & over. When the show ended we’d continue to talk about the show. Now, it seems there may be a chance for the show to come back. Creator & original host Joel Hodgson has created a Kickstarter account to help bring the show back, but as of this writing, there is only 6 hours left.
Check out the Kickstarter link, https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/mst3k/bringbackmst3k?ref=hero, & see what you can do to bring back Tom Servo & Crow.
