Thirteen years is usually a long time for a company like Disney•Pixar to cash in on a successful first film like Finding Nemo. But they've going to be releasing the long awaited for sequel - Finding Dory. And since it's a Disney•Pixar film, that means there'll be lots of merchandising and toys. Hence...Funko and their Mystery Minis: Disney•Pixar Finding Dory series. The blind-boxed series will be released in June 2016 (same month as the film) and likely include all of the main players from the sure to be hit movie. Oh, how I dread being forced to go see this.
Funko celebrated Aliens Day with some new Aliens collectibles. First up, shown above, is the new ReAction: Aliens 3-Pack. This set of three features Ripley, the 5.5-inch Power Loader suit, and the equally tall Alien Queen. They'll be available beginning in August 2016. Also available in August will be a pair from the Pop! Movies: Aliens series. Ellen Ripley makes her Pop! debut alongside a super-sized 6-inch tall Alien Queen Pop!.
Funko's Mopeez: Ghostbusters Series is slated to hit store shelves beginning in July 2016. These are the old-school Ghostbusters and not those new-fangled lady Ghostbusters of the upcoming film. The set includes classic Ghostbusters characters like Peter Venkman, Raymond Stantz, Egon Spengler, Slimer, Winston Zeddermore, and the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man.
Funko has introduced the Game of Thrones Action Figures and The Wall Display Set. These figures stand in at 3.75 inches in height and have five points of articulation. The first wave features Jon Snow, Samwell Tarly, Ghost, Tormund Giantsbane, Ygritte, Rattleshirt (aka Lord of Bones), Magnar of Thenn, a White Walker, and The Night King.
In addition to the individual figures, Funko is also releasing The Wall Display Set, which stands at 13 inches tall with 15-inch tall scaffolding to feature or interact with up to 25 Funko Action Figures. This display set comes with an exclusive Tyrion Lannister Action Figure. The individual figures will be released in June 2016, while The Wall Playlet will drop in July 2016.
Funko has announced a series of four figures from one of the most popular sci-fi films of the 1980's - Pop! Movie: Flash Gordon. The series includes namesake Flash Gordon, Ming the Merciless, General Klytus, and Prince Vultan of the Hackmen. Look for them to be released beginning in July 2016.
Hey...it's time to celebrate the career of Conor McGregor...right? Oh wait...he's now un-retired? Well, it doesn't matter to Funko as they've announced the Pop! UFC Series. The series features the best fighters from around the world - Conor McGregor, Ronda Rousey, Chris Weidman, Anderson Silva, Jose Aldo, and BJ Penn. Look for them to be released in June 2016.
Funko has announced that their Game of Thrones – Mystery Minis Series 3 will be hitting store shelves beginning in May 2016. This series will see the characters from all over the Game of Thrones map. You'll get a chance to pick upJon Snow, Varys, Bronn, Arya Stark, Daenerys, among others. Of course, the series is blind boxed.
Fans of Funko’s Game of Thrones Pop! figures will now have even more (and slightly cuter) ways to collect their favorite characters. The Game of Thrones Dorbz vinyl figures stand in at 3 inches in height (I'm assuming Tyrion's slightly smaller to scale). In this round, Funko will be releasing Tyrion Lannister, Ned Stark, Jon Snow, Daenerys Targaryen, and the Night King. Look for them to start hitting store shelves beginning in June 2016.
Funko has announced the Pop! Movies: Ghostbusters 2016 series. The series includes new Ghostbusters - Abby Yates, Erin Gilbert, Jillian Holtzmann, and Patty Tolan. Plus, there's Kevin (he's obviously Louis Tulley's kid...right?) and a pair of ghosts (Gertrude Eldridge and Rowan's Ghost). Look for all of the ghouls and fighters of the paranormal to be released in June 2016 (July 15th is the slated film opening).
Funko has announced a pair of MyMojis series that will be available beginning in June 2016. The MyMoji: Ghostbusters and MyMoji: Five Nights at Freddy's each combine licensed characters with emojis, giving those characters various emotions. Each blind-bag vinyl figure depicts a different emotion through the faces of characters from an assortment of popular titles. They retail for $3.99, with each figure coming with a code to download a free digital MyMoji for your phone.
