Toy Fair 2015: Funko

Feb 21 // Scarecroodle
While Funko had a LOT of awesome collectibles on my display, my biggest want belongs to the upcoming Gremlins ReAction figures. Unfortunately, the gremlins (and mogwais) will be packed separately, but they'll be coming with some larger accessories. The line-up includes Billy, Kate, Gizmo, Stripe (mogwai), Stripe (gremlin), a movie theater gremlin, and... another gremlin. At US$10 a pop, I'm not sure if I'll buy everything but I'll likely pick up Gizmo and Billy... and one of the gremlins, obviously. Maybe also mogwai Stripe. Another interesting entry was the Dorbz line, which will begin with series devoted to Batman and Marvel (because apparently Batman is the only thing that matters in the DC Comics universe...? Well, maybe!). While I'm generally not fond of this style, the rogues certainly look cute and I can imagine that I'll try to track down a Penguin, Riddler, etc. The figures will retail for around US$10 and will be sold in a widowed box (like the Pop! line, etc). An adorably awesome Rocket Raccoon, Groot, and Deadpool will apparently be released as Super Deluxe Vinyls. I can say that I super want that Rocket Raccoon on my shelf.  Of course, since the line is a bit on the pricier side -- with a US$80 MSRP -- that may not happen. I'm sure other fans won't hesitate, though. You'll believe that a pony can fly! Three decos of the Hikari Rainbow Dash were on display and... I hate to admit that I kinda want all three. Other reveals included a wicked new Hulk mold (including one in a red deco!), C-3PO (with surprisingly awesome decos), a Clone Trooper, Iron Man, and... more? I could have swore that I saw a Hikari Wampa on display in other coverage, but we don't have a shot of it ourselves. Star Wars fans can also look forward to Bossk, Darth Vader, and a Storm Trooper (plus the Wampas which are coming and look awesome). We didn't get photos of some of those either, but other sites apparently did. Did you enjoy The Fifth Element? Because I didn't. Nonetheless, a good portion of the cast is getting figures in the ReAction line. The line is a reminder of one of Chris Tucker's weirdest roles. It was one of the films that Chris Tucker received a Razzie nomination for that year. Ray Stantz, Peter Venkman, and Egon Spengler are looking more humorous than ever in Vinyl Idolz form. While something like this might not usually be my thing, I like the poses (and likenesses) for Ray and Egon. I'm also guessing that Winston must be waiting with the car. The Vinyl Idolz line will retail for around US$20. For something that's a bit more up my alley, Funko had a Disney "Heroes and Villains" Mystery Minis set on display (wait, does Funko produce more than heroes and villains?), a Frozen Mystery Minis set, and a Blizzard Mystery Minis set (including selections from the Diablo series, World of Warcraft, etc). Finally, we're going to need a bigger boat because Jaws is coming to the ReAction line! The shark will apparently be sold for US$20 by his lonesome, but he'll stalk his sold-separately co-stars on toy shelves come this June. Otherwise the Legacy Firefly figures were on display but I can't remember if we saw them or not previously. Ditto for the ReAction Arrow figures and a dozen more offerings. Frankly, it's Funko's fault for producing waaaaaay too much stuff at any given moment. How can one editor be expected to keep track? Be sure to check out the gallery for additional images.
