Breaking Bad and Walking Dead are included in Funko's latest SDCC batch photo
Breaking Bad and Walking Dead are included in Funko's latest SDCC batch
by Vanessa Cubillo

Funko did it! I said I wanted them to surprise me, and that’s just what they did. Their sixth batch of SDCC exclusives all comes from hit TV shows.

The first two come from the critically acclaimed, Breaking Bad. This series is getting massive! There’s already ten regular figures, two Entertainment Earth exclusives, and now two SDCC exclusives.

There will be a glow in the dark Walter White in his yellow cook suit, and a badly beaten Jesse Pinkman. Next comes my favorite Pop! exclusive so far; The Walking Dead’s Hershel Greene. What makes this exclusive so special?

Well, tragically, Hershel comes with a removable head just like the SDCC exclusive last year of Game of ThronesNed Stark. I joked some time ago about Funko making this figure, so I’m happy they actually did. Speaking of Game of Thrones, there will be a Glow in the dark version of a White Walker from the Legacy Collection.

The last two exclusives come from My Little Pony. There will be Vinyl Collectible versions of DJ Pon-3 and Spitfire. Remember to like and share Funko’s SDCC posts on social media for a chance to win these exclusives. I want that Hershel Pop!

Will you pony up for My Little Pony Mystery Minis series 2? photo
Will you pony up for My Little Pony Mystery Minis series 2?
by Scarecroodle

A second series of Funko's My Little Pony Mystery Minis is slated to release in August. As with the first series, the standard retail assortment consists mostly of black decos for the characters. However, as with series 1, Hot Topic will be carrying an exclusive version of the set which includes some additional show-accurate versions of the ponies.

Series 2 consists of ten figurines (rarity chart in gallery) with a basically equal chance of getting any of the figures. We weren't provided with a rarity chart for the Hot Topic version, but it's probably a safe assumption that the show-accurate colors will be rarer (ie, 1/24 instead of 1/12).

Hasbro's SDCC My Little Pony exclusives are super, hairy photo
Hasbro's SDCC My Little Pony exclusives are super, hairy
by Natalie Kipper

Hasbro recently revealed the My Little Pony portion of their San Diego Comic-Con exclusives line-up. The company will have two figures available, Mane-iac Mayhem Pony (US$49.99) and her Equestria Girls' human doll equivalent (US$29.99). Hasbro had this to say of Mane-iac Mayhem Pony:

This power-mad pony from Maretropolis features a metallic purple outfit, accessorized with fashionable black and gold glittery boots. She comes with Spike the Dragon as 'Hum Drum.'

Pretty fitting for SDCC, don't you think? They don't go into much detail in regards to her humanoid counterpart but I think the picture speaks for itself. Crazy hair matching her pony plus a super-wild outfit certainly give the impression of a out-of-the-ordinary girl. 

These figures will be sold at San Diego Comic-Con at Hasbro's booth. Edition sizes have not yet been revealed. Any remaining stock will put up for sale online on HasbroToyShop.com post-SDCC.
