Funko Releases Wacky Wobblers for The Walking Dead

WalkingDead.FunkoWhile The Walking Dead’s fourth season has come to an end, Funko LLC has a new set of Wacky Wobblers bobble head figures to fill the gruesome void left in viewers (which hopefully weren’t caused by zombie maws). The set features Daryl Dixon sporting his leather biker jacket and armed with a crossbow. In addition, there’s Merle Dixon in both living and walker style, the latter having the requisite bloody mouth and head wounds.

Charlie Sheen Talking Bobble Head

Entertainment Earth is planning to roll out an officially licensed Charlie Sheen Talking Bobble Head this July. Made by Funko, the item is seven inches tall and speaks six authentic phrases:

“When you got tiger blood and Adonis DNA, man, it’s like… you get with the program, dude.”

“Winner, winner, chicken dinner… I don’t think so.  Winner, winner, SHEEN dinner!”

“Duh, winning!”

“I… I… I am on a drug; it’s called ‘Charlie Sheen’!”

“Built by trolls. Keep that in mind: phones were built by trolls.”

“Apocalypse me… the jaws of life.”

Would you buy this? Has Charlie Sheen mania jumped the shark or is it still going strong? Just getting started? Only time will tell.
