Disney-Pixar's upcoming summer movie Inside Out is all about human emotions interpreted inside a young girl's mind. Now it joins the list of other Disney movie characters available in Funko merchandise before the release date...
Unlock new "adventurers" from iconic Final Fantasy character designer Yoshitaka Amano and a new scenario from Yasumi Matsuno, designer of Final Fantasy XII. Also, Terra Battle received the highly anticipated online co-op mode update that allows players to work together to clear stages and adds summons to the battlefield.
Funko enters the Age of Ultron with, well, everything; Mystery Minis, Pop!s, keychains, Fabrikations, Wacky Wobblers, etc by Scarecroodle
All hands on deck! Batten down the hatches because Funko has unleashed a flood of collectibles for Marvel's upcoming Avengers: Age of Ultron. Rarely do we see this much merchandises for a franchise, let alone all at once but Funko intends to inundate collectors with selections from FIVE different lines in March (and a little of April).
Now that all Marvel licensees have answered the internet's very loud calls for Baby Groot toys, they can turn their attention elsewhere! The Funko Pop! Glow in the Dark figure of Thanos arrives as an Entertainment Earth exclu...
Entertainment Earth will be exclusively selling such a variant which looks just as cool as the first version (meaning it's time to buy both?). While I'm not the biggest fan of glow-in-the-dark gimmicks, the EE exclusive looks great by daylight as well. When you couple these two fantastic releases with DST's upcoming vinyl bank bust, 2015 might be the year of Cthulhu.
Funko's EE-exclusive glow-in-the-dark Pop! Cthulhu can be pre-ordered for US$11 and is slated for a March release. Are you ready for some real March Madness?
Every Christmas season CEO of Funko, Brian Mariotti, gives Funko fans a very special treat. Called Funko’s 12 Days of Christmas, each day Mariotti shares what collector’s can expect to see in 2015 from their favo...
PopVinyl.net has reported that Funko has surreptitiously released a Pop! Frozen 3-pack featuring Elsa, Olaf, and an over-sized Marshmallow as a Walmart exclusive. While Olaf and Elsa are certainly nothing new, this is the fir...
As someone who balks at the ever-increasing prices of licensed PVC toys and statues of my favorite characters, I'm totally cool with seeing Funko pick up Japanese properties for their Animation line of Pop! vinyl figures. Che...
It wasn't that long ago that I never had a reason to step foot inside a Walgreen's but, within the past year or so, the small pharmacy has managed to land exclusive after exclusive. The retailer's most recent coup is four of Funko's Marvel Pop!s: Spider-Man 2099, Venom, a black-suited Spider-Man, and the Punisher.
While the news had me at "Spidey 2099", I also find my eyes drawn to that Venom and his wickedly evil face (and claws!). Thoroughly impressed, I figured I'd see how he stacked up against the previous Pop! Venom(s) and... I couldn't find any. This *might* be the first-ever Pop! Venom, who easily numbers among the most popular Spidey rogues, and yet he's an exclusive for a marginal (as far as collectibles go) retailer. Say whaaaaaa?
Although it's not unusual for Funko to give retailers exclusive Pop!s (in fact, *most* retailers seem to get an exclusive Pop!), but usually it's just one or two items in a larger wave and they're often just variants of a character in that same wave (like a white-robed Raven). However, this crazy news is making Walgreens -- which also scored Hasbro exclusives -- suddenly seem relevant.
These figures are slated to release in January and hopefully won't be hard to find. Some of Walgreens' previously held exclusives were on its website (and as a pre-order, no less!) months and months before popping up at retail.
Before there was Californication, David Duchovny starred in a little known scifi/horror/drama tv series called the X-Files. Maybe you've heard of it? The show ran for around nine years and is widely considered one of the greatest things to ever grace television.
The series that helped to lay the ground-work for countless tv shows has been honored with some new collectibles. Funko will be producing X-Files Pop! and Wacky Wobbler figures.The selection includes agents Mulder and Scully (who appear as both Wacky Wobblers and Pop!s) as well as the sinister Cigarette Smoking Man and an alien grey (Expect Agent Doggett to appear if Pop! David Duchovny decides to work on his movie career).
The end may be upon us, as Cthulhu has not only woken up but rolled out of bed into Funko's Pop! line. Even more frightening? He's currently available for pre-order!
Cthulhu will be the third character to appear in Funko's Pop! Books series (the other two being from Where the Wild Things Are), as this version is apparently directly inspired by the good works of horror luminary H.P. Lovecraft. This cosmic horror is the centerpiece of the Cthulhu Mythos and, in terms of horror literature, almost ranks right up there with Dracula and Frankenstein's Monster. However, Cthulhu hasn't been adapted directly to film that often probably due to his lazy attitude (sure, he can bring the end times whenever he wants, but first he's going to take another nap).
Funko's Pop! Cthulhu straddles the border of being maddeningly scary and maddeningly cute in small part due to his narrowed eyes. As such, I'm not sure if he's an "awww" or an "AAAAH!" and it's driving me crazy.
Pop! Cthulhu can be pre-ordered for around US$10 and is slated for release in January/February.
Funko's last few Supernatural announcements prompted the expected, "Where the hell is Crowley?", questions. That question has finally been answered with a definitive, "Here he is!", when Funko unveiled everybody's favorite Ki...
Funko has released some official images of its upcoming Pop! figures from two classic Disney films. The Jungle Book's Mowgli, Shere Khan, and Kaa as well as Robin Hood's Robin Hood, Prince John, and Sir Hiss (no relation to King Hiss) are slated for release this month.
While I can't say that I was a fan of either film as a kid, Prince John, Kaa, Shere Khan, and Sir Hiss (see gallery) are adorable. I'm somewhat less found of the titular Robin Hood, but he still looks pretty neat.
Expect to see these guys on shelves near you in the near future, if they aren't there already. (Especially if you've already bought them. Then you'd just need to look over to see them on the shelves.)
