Just Added: Meek Mill to Summer Jam 2018 Line Up! 🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥
Thanks to their POP! vinyl line, Funko is absolutely dominating the toy scene right now, unleashing so many new toys at such a steady clip that I’m not sure anyone working for the company has slept in the last couple years. It feels like you can’t go *anywhere* without seeing POP! toys *everywhere*, and the brand is showing no signs of slowing.
Love ’em or hate ’em, the line of big-headed vinyl toys will go down as being one of the most iconic lines in toy history, and the coolest thing about the line is that Funko has used it to show a whole lot of love to the horror genre. Hell, they just unveiled an upcoming vinyl toy of Black Phillip from The Witch, which just shows how cool they are.
In any event, we know you guys like toys so we figured you’d be happy to hear that the new doc Making Fun – The Story of Funko is arriving on Netflix on May 24!
“We are extremely proud of the film as both a testament to the vibrant Funatic community and power of pop culture’s ability to bring people together,” the company says.
Signature Series Arts and Blakkmoney Ent will be kicking off their 2018 season with the anticipation Cypher Chamber hosted by Vianca Phillips of WVMR radio and Signature Series Arts in-house talent Awesome . In light of the event that has already been promoted by Metro NY newspaper and Spate Media . We give you 5 artist to watch for that can make this a memorable event .
This will be Milly’s first time at a Signature Series Arts event and he was entered as a headlining act . If you watch Milly’s YouTube videos you can sense that he may bring the more rawer form of hip-hop to the event . Milly has strong music in his catalogue and a demanding presence . It will be interesting to see how he plays that out in the live stage .
Ique is no stranger to the Blakkmoney stage as he had one of the strongest performances at Night at the Asylum back in 2014 . Ique made a mark in all important check boxes . Good music , supporting fans , great live show . Years have gone by since Ique have touched a Blakkmoney stage , question in can the artist bring the same momentum ?
RBM Bizzel has blaze a trail of his own with consistent good art through movie , web series and live performances. The Brooklyn native hasn’t lost a step in stage presence as evident through his performance at his Purge Concert last year . Bizzel already has the most momentum going into the event and will be the one to watch .
Dali Tyson has created her own wave of momentum leading into #TheCypherChamber . She is currently releasing new music and have been one of the few artist to post themselves kicking lyrics on video. Tyson has gained the attention of many of the blog sites leading into the event and will undoubtedly be an artist that will have to show she can handle the stage .
Shi-Zen shocked the system during his set last year at #NYCESBEVENT . He was already credited for great music but was one of the artist that had many supporters on hand in the crowd . Shi-Zen had an electric performance , even late into the event and still managed to score a great performance. His energy match one of an opener or headliner . Shi-Zen will be looked as one of the names to kick the event in another gear .

The Mad Titan is coming for Fortnite.
This isn’t one of those fun fan-made mashups for the YouTube crowd. Epic Games and Marvel have an unprecedented crossover event in the works, and EW can exclusively give away the deets! Thanos, the villain of Avengers: Infinity War, will drop into Fortnite‘s Battle Royale mode for a limited time starting Tuesday, May 8.
After all, Thanos has the Reality Stone. So he can easily hop realities, if you think about it.
The “Infinity Gauntlet Limited Time Mashup” mode for Battle Royale will feel just like a standard slugfest — with one major difference: One hundred players will descend upon the map and fight until one player is left standing, as usual, but this time you’ll do so with the Infinity Gauntlet in play.
The artifact containing all six Infinity Stones — the same one Thanos used to cripple Earth’s Mightiest Heroes on the big screen — will appear on the map. Whomsoever finds and equips it will transform into Thanos himself, wielding all the power that comes with him.
ORIGINAL STORY – Earlier this morning, Fortnite, rather surprisingly, launched their new 3.6 update for Battle Royale and Save the World.
As you might imagine the update contained the usual array of bug fixes to the game and also a host of new items as well, including the new Clinger Grenade.
But as with every update, there’s also a number of secrets hidden inside the game’s code, which having been datamined has revealed a number of new items on their way to the game.
There are new upcoming cosmetics, including new skins, harvesting tools and back bling.
In total there are five items, 4 new. Two skins, one new pickaxe and two pieces of back bling, although one is already available in the game.
It also included the Brite backpack, but it’s believed that will be made available with the new Brite Gunner skin.
These new details were found by TwoEpicBuddies originally who posted the new items on Twitter.
With the update going live today, it’s not clear when these new items could go live in the game, but it’s likely coming in the next few days ahead of Season 4
“Due to an issue discovered with the “Self Refund” feature, we’ll be disabling it until we create a fix and make some usability improvements to the system.”
Epic Games failed to address when the new feature will return to the game, but it seems, at least initially, that the problem might have been more to do with the system proving too popular and getting overloaded.
Prior to it being disabled, Epic told fans:
“We’re working on getting refunds processed for those of you that requested it. Unfortunately, it’s taking a little longer than we’d like, but rest assured you’re going to get a refund.”
Given the number of plates the developer is likely spinning right now – Season 4 launch, the Tilted Towers Meteor ‘event’ – it’s possible any proper fix could be delayed until the next big update, next week.

You all have been waiting for it for a long time – we’ve got emails, phone calls, tweets, Instagram posts, and impassioned pleas. You want to know when Marvel’s Spider-Man will finally be in your hands.
Everyone here at Insomniac Games is thrilled to announce that Marvel’s Spider-Man will launch on Friday, September 7, 2018 exclusively for the PlayStation 4 system. It’s been an incredible experience for us to spend the last few years working on this game. From getting to create our own unique universe and story for our favorite Super Hero, to working with our talented collaborators at PlayStation and Marvel Games, to developing relationships with the Spider-Man and Marvel fan communities (#SpideySquad represent!), it’s been an amazing journey thus far.
Along with the release date, we get to show you the final box art for Marvel’s Spider-Man! Insomniac has a history of excellent game covers, from Ratchet & Clank Future: A Crack in Time to the bold Olly Moss Resistance 3 cover. We went with a pure red background and a striking image of the web-slinger.
Our more experienced Spidey in his brand new Advanced Suit can be seen confidently web-swinging against a bold red backdrop. To juxtapose the unique look of our Spider-Man, his pose takes inspiration from over 50 years of fan-favorite Spider-Man comic book art and artistry. Astute fans of the wall-crawler will see nods to the work of J. Scott Campbell, Mark Bagley, John Romita Sr., John Romita Jr., Joe Quesada and (of course) Steve Ditko, as well as many other iconic Spider-Man artists.
You’ll see this cover adorning the standard edition of Marvel’s Spider-Man when it is available at retail and digitally for US $59.99 / CDN $79.99 MSRP. While many of you have been asking us to show the cover for the game, many more have wondered: will there be digital deluxe and collector’s editions of the game? You betcha, true believers — we’ve got both.
The Digital Deluxe edition of the game (US $79.99 / CDN $99.99 MSRP) will include a copy of the game as well as new story chapters with our post-launch DLC series – Marvel’s Spider-Man: The City That Never Sleeps. That’s right, we’ll be supporting the game post-launch and you’ll be getting three new chapters each with new missions, new villains and characters, and additional suits for Spider-Man. More details on that a bit later down the road. Buyers who pre-order the Digital Deluxe edition will also receive by mail a limited edition collectible pin (only available to residents of US and Canada) featuring Spider-Man as he appears on the cover art for the game.
Of course, for those collectors out there who want an incredible Spider-Man collectible alongside Marvel’s Spider-Man, we have just the edition for you. The Collector’s Edition (US $149.99 / CDN $199.99 MSRP, while supplies last) includes all of the digital content from the Digital Deluxe Edition, as well as a Steelbook case featuring the iconic white spider, Mini Artbook from Titan Books, and an awesome Marvel’s Spider-Man statue by Gentle Giant. Pay extra special attention to the statue though and you’ll notice something is obviously missing. We haven’t revealed the entire statue for the Collector’s Edition, just Spider-Man perched on top of something. What could that be? It’s too spoilery to show you now, but stay tuned!
That said – no matter where you buy it, or which edition you get, you have a chance to grab these pre-order items. Whether it’s a Spidey-Suit Pack featuring Spider-Punk, as well as a couple suits we will reveal this summer, the Spider-Drone gadget, a PSN avatar, an original PS4 theme designed by renowned comic book artist Adi Granov, or just some extra skill points to unlock faster web-swinging sooner – our pre-order bonus is the total package. Check out this video of Spider-Punk and it
That’s a lot of info – but I realize some of you have been dying to get your hands on new information about the game itself as we haven’t said much since Paris Games Week and PSX last year. Well, there are a ton more details in the cover story of the May issue of Game Informer. The GI crew came out and got to go hands-on with Marvel’s Spider-Man, talking to the dev team and bringing you the biggest look at the game yet. Plus we got famed Marvels and Amazing Spider-Man cover artist Alex Ross to create this “Amazing” cover painting for the magazine.
Game Informer will also be posting stories and interviews with members of the Insomniac Games team all month long, so keep an eye on their website for the latest.
That’s all for now – we can’t wait for you to get your hands on the game on September 7, 2018 exclusively for PlayStation 4. In the meantime, get your pre-orders in for Marvel’s Spider-Man at PlayStation Store or a friendly retailer online or near you.
