As a part of their 2019 Toy Fair news, Funko announced their POP! NASCAR Series. There are current and past drivers amongst the NASCAR Pop! figures that will be available. There's Richard Petty, Dale Earnhardt Jr., Kevin Harvick, Jeff Gordon, Dale Earnhardt, Kyle Busch, Chase Elliott and Bill Elliott. You can currently pre-order all of these figures over at Amazon.com.
The newest Kickstarter project from artist Vincent Scala is the Work Dog: Your Desktop Companion figure. This is Scala's third Kickstarter that he has run. The 6-inch tall figure will feature 3 points of articulation (arms and head). Starting at the $50.00 funding level, backers will be able to grab a Work Dog vinyl figure. Of course, as with most Kickstarters, there are various levels that will get you comics, pins, stickers, t-shirts, prototypes and customs.
This project will only be funded if it reaches its goal by Friday, March 8th 2019 at 11:15AM ET.
As I say with all Kickstarter projects I post about. Remember...this is not a pre-order. There are many instances of crowd funded projects that have been funded never making good on their promised goods. So back all Kickstarters with caution.
