Following a weekend tease, Funko today announced that they’ve acquired a license with Seasame Workshop to create a series of Sesame Street Pop! vinyl figures. The line kicks off at NYCC, with Toy Tokyo offering a ‘First to Market’ Super Grover. He will be available at the Toy Tokyo booth (#101) for $15. A full series will follow in 2015 and include Bert, Ernie, Big Bird, Oscar the Grouch, The Count, Elmo, Cookie Monster and Grover.
“Funko is excited about our new partnership with Sesame Workshop. As a company we feel that the Sesame Street license is a fantastic way to bring our older customers back to their youth, while at the same time introducing our fun new line of collectibles to younger generations.” Andrew Perlmutter VP of Sales.
