Marvel x Funko Pop Animated Series May Just Make Me Love Cute Cap

I am never a fan of Funko Pop series of action figures. Why? Because they too god damn cute. That’s why. But this animation here, presented by Marvel and Funko Pop, may just change the way I see Funko Pop Marvel superheroes collectibles. They are still cute, but now that it is being animated, it is action cute. Like action super cute. This particular clip is all about Captain America kicking his long time archenemy Red Skull’s ass. If anything, it is too god damn cute to pass. Honestly, we never thought bringing Funko Pop to life can be this awesome.

JUNK HEAD 1 – A Stop-Motion Animated Film

animated or not, we considered ourselves as serious sci-fi addicts. if you as big a fan as us for such genre of film, then you shouldn’t miss this epic stop-motion animated film created by one Takahide Hori. and when we said “don’t miss it”, we seriously mean don’t miss it. the JUNK HEAD 1, as the film was called, was set in a distant future, where the human race, struck by some ancient virus, was dwindling in numbers which was made worst by the race’s inability to reproduce. so naturally, humans were genetically enhanced to live longer, and clones were created to help supplement the workforce, which lead to an eventual conflict between the clones and their master. anyway, we thought the storyline, though by no means refreshing, was pretty awesome and the cinematography is certainly pretty spell-binding.
