Funko is celebrating the classic 1980's Jim Henson film with their Pop! Movies: Labyrinth series. The line will consist of four figures: Sarah & Worm; Ludo (6-inch tall Super Sized Pop!); Jareth the Goblin King; Hoggle. Look for them to hit stores beginning in September 2016.
Funko is heading back to the 1980's with the announcement of their Pop! TV: The A-Team series. Master of disguise John 'Hannibal'
Smith, the unpredictable 'Howling Mad' Murdock, mechanic B.A. Baracus, and the smooth-talking Templeton 'Faceman' Peck are each represented. In addition to the original team, Funko will also be releasing the Pop! Ride: The A-Team Van (featuring a unique B.A. Baracus Pop! figure). The figures will hit shelves in August 2016, while that iconic van will land in September.
The Mighty Morphin Power Rangers are apparently back to being popular again. Funko has announced the Pop! TV: Power Rangers series. Between the Green Ranger's martial arts skills, the Black Ranger's strength, the Yellow Ranger's quick wit, and the Blue Ranger's intelligence there's nothing they can't overcome...but you'll need to wait until they're released in August 2016.
Yeah...I'm in my late 30's and I still watch WWE programming religiously. I could have told you who all of the above characters were without seeing their names. Should I be ashamed or proud of that? There are five new figures from Funko and their Pop! WWE series. You've got Seth Rollins, Bray Wyatt, Kevin Owens, Bret Hart, and Eva Marie. All of them will drop in August 2016...or probably right around SummerSlam.
Funko's unleashed the Pop! Games: Mega Man series. This August, you'll be able to get your hands on four figures from one of the world's most iconic video games. The series includes the likes of Mega Man and Rush, his robotic dog sidekick, plus Proto Man and the evil Dr. Wily.
Funko has announced series new series based on the upcoming DC Comics film - Suicide Squad. The Pop! Heroes - Suicide Squad line (shown above) includes Deadshot, El Diablo, Katana, Killer Croc, Boomerang, Rick Flag, Harley Quinn, The Joker, and a Masked Deadshot version. The Pop! figures are currently available to purchase.
Also, there are the Mystery Minis: Suicide Squad series. This 3-inch tall blind box series features multiple versions of all of the main characters from the film. Look for the series to be available beginning in August 2016.
Preacher has gone from comic book to AMC show (that formula seems to have worked before) and now to the Pop! Television: Preacher series. The show follows Jesse Custer, a small town preacher, on his mission to find God. He'll have to call on the disfigured Arseface and Cassidy the Irish vampire for help. Funko has announced the figure will hit shelves beginning in August 2016.
Oh, hey, thanks Funko! They've announced plans to release Pop! figures based on a film that still sort of creeps me out 30+ years after I originally viewed it - The Dark Crystal. It's the movie I now threaten my own kids with forcing them to watch when they misbehave - a Jim Henson fueled punishment. And so Funko wants you to be able to relive your personal dark dreams with their Pop! Movies: The Dark Crystal lineup. You can pick up Jen the Gelfling, Kira and her pet Fizzgig, The Chamberlain Skeksis, Aughra, and UrSol the Chanter. They'll be coming in July 2016...so be ready.
With Disney set to release a new version of Pete's Dragon in August of this year, Funko is going somewhat retro with their upcoming Pop! Disney: Pete's Dragon - Elliott vinyl. "Even though he has the power to become invisible and breathe fire, he'll be content if you just rub his stomach!" You'll be able to get your hands on this 6-inch tall Pop! vinyl in July 2016.
Funko is releasing Pop figures from another show/film that I've heard rumblings about but never actually seen. The Pop! Animation: Rick and Morty series features - you guessed it! - both Rick and Morty. "Rick, the troubled scientist, and his kind-hearted grandson, Morty, embark on misadventures that send them through time and space!" Wait...is this Back to the Future? And is that kid holding poop? Ahh...find out in July 2016.
