Pop! Television: Baywatch

Funko is bringing us back to the 1990's with their new Pop! lineup - the Pop! Television: Baywatch series. Yes, these are from the old television show that ran from 1989-2001, not the film that's coming out later this year. It's Mitch Buchannon and C.J. Parker coming to the rescue.

If you can't wait to get your hands on them, Amazon.com currently has both figures available to pre-order.

Pop! Animation: Powerpuff Girls

Three perfect little girls, made of sugar, spice, everything nice… and “Chemical X”. Funko has announced the Pop! Animation: Powerpuff Girls series of vinyl collectibles.You'll be able to collect the adorable crime-fighting trio (Blossom, Bubbles, and Buttercup), as well their arch nemesis Mojo Jojo, and HIM, the chaotic and mysterious evil-doer.

You can currently pre-order these figures from Amazon.com.

Funko and Forbes

Yesterday, Forbes published an article entitled Ever Hear Of Funko? They Plan To Be A Billion Dollar Toy Company. It's an interesting look at the company and their aspirations. Some of the big takeaways are the sheer number of licenses that they hold in a given year. It's not surprising if you follow this site...Funko seems to produce a Pop! figure for every and any pop culture event.

The financial aspect is also interesting. If you have followed Plastic and Plush since its inception, you likely remember the "old Funko". They produced wacky bobbleheads and items based on weird licenses and original characters. At San Diego Comic Con, they'd always be giving away random items to Con-goers. But the company has apparently changed hands several times since that point in time.

"For now the company is privately owned. However, it's outreach to the financial community could signal its first steps towards going public. It was acquired by private equity fund ACON Investments from Fundamental Capital in 2015 for an undisclosed amount and is based in Washington."

Funko was able to take the stylized designer-toy look of their Pop! figure (which is clearly their leading product) and transcend the "mass market". There will be questions whether Pop! vinyl figures are an art toy (I think they are) or a designer toy (they aren't), but they're apparently doing well enough to warrant the attention of Forbes magazine.

Pop! Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2

Funko has announced a rather large array of Pop! vinyl figures for the upcoming Marvel blockbuster, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. Peter Quill, aka Star-Lord, and his team of heroes return to the world of Pop! vinyl in all-new poses and designs. You can collect Gamora, Drax, Rocket, and Groot, as well as Nebula, Mantis, and Taserface.

You can currently pre-order these Guardians of The Galaxy Vol. 2 figures over at Amazon.com.
