A quick rundown of some recent Funko news as I missed yesterday’s update.
Fans of the classic sci-fi property Planet of the Apes are in for a treat as Funko is releasing a line of Dorbz vinyl figures based on the original movie. Due out in May, look for George Taylor (two versions, the space suit version is a 1:6 chase), Corenelius and a limited edition Zira. Zira has an edition size of just 5000.
in June, you’ll be able to keep your keys on Pocket Pop!s based on the Netflix hit Stranger Things. Eleven, Demogorgon, Dustin and Barb are on the way.
Funko’s WWE product lines continue with a blind bag Pint Size Heroes assortment coming in June. Kevin Owens, Undertaker, Brock Lesnar, John Cena, Randy Savage, Nikki Bella and the members of The New Day are among the wrestlers included in the series. Toys R Us will offer special exclusive characters including Stone Cold Steve Austin, Ric Flair and Finn Balor.
Finally a new wave of WWE Pop!s are hitting shelves as soon as this month. Characters included are: Finn Balor, Mick Foley, Goldberg and AJ Styles. A masked version of Finn Balor is available as a 1:6 chase and FYE will have an exclusive “The Demon” version.
Funko is bringing the Netflix Original Series Stranger Things to collectors and fans in 2017! Coming in early next year, fans of this amazing show will be able to take home Pop! vinyl versions of their favorite characters, including Eleven, Mike, Dustin, Lucas, Will, Barb, and, of course, the terrifying Demogorgon from the Upside Down!
In September, Funko posted two concept images of Eleven and Barb in an effort to gauge the interest of fans and customers. The images – which were shared on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram – resulted in a huge amount of interest from fans around the world with everyone saying one thing: “When can we get these?!”
“Bringing Stranger Things to Funko is symbolic of our connection to our customers as mutual fans of pop culture”, said Mark Robben, Funko’s Director of Marketing. “We feel grateful for the privilege to create our version of these wonderful characters, but we never forget it starts with the collectors. These figures would not have been possible without every single share, like, and comment from you. Friends don’t lie.”
The Stranger Things figures are available for pre-order now and should hit retail shelves in early 2017 with an MSRP of $9.99 USD. Pop! vinyl figures are sculpted vinyl collectibles, approximately 3-4” inches high and packaged in a windowed display box.
