Vinyl Sugar has announced a pair of figures from their Super Deluxe Vinyl collectible series. These two feature a pair of characters from Guardians of the Galaxy. There's the 11-inch tall Groot as well as the 7-inch tall Rocket Raccoon and his best pal, the 4-inch tall Dancing Groot. Look for them to be released in September 2015.
To say I was disappointed when NBC announced that Season 3 would be the last for Hannibal on the network would be an understatement. The show is a visual joy...and most of that is thanks to the work of showrunner/creator/producer/Übermensch Bryan Fuller.
Since Funko has already blessed Fannibals with several Hannibal Pop! figures, they're going to cap things off with a Bryan Fuller Pop! figure with an eerie resemblance to Hannibal Lector. Alas, this Pop! will only be available at San Diego Comic Con 2015 and the Funko Booth. The exclusive Pop! comes in a run of 144 pieces and will be available during Bryan Fuller's signing at the booth on Friday, July 10th 2015 at 2PM (line starts to form at 1PM). This will be the only time you can purchase one...so get me one if you get a chance.
Funko has announced a new figure series - the Supernatural Mystery Minis. Based on characters from the hit CW television series, the blind boxed Mystery Minis feature Sam, Dean, Castiel and even a LARPing Charlie. Look for them to hit your favorite collectible shops in July 2015.
Funko has announced two more batches of 2015 San Diego Comic Con exclusive figures. From what I've seen, it looks like they might have the largest array of exclusives available at the show. Here is what they've just announced:

Funko has announced a number of 2015 San Diego Comic Con exclusives that will be available at the show next month. They're not offering a pre-buy option this year, so you'll need to be at the show early if you're looking for something specific. The available exclusives will include the following:

Pop! Television: Doctor Who - Twelfth Doctor (Spacesuit)

While Charlie Brown, Snoopy, and their Peanuts compatriots never seem to go out of style, it might be that Funko is attempting to get out in front of the The Peanuts Movie that will be released November 2015. The Pop! Peanuts series includes Charlie Brown, Linus Van Pelt, Snoopy, Lucy Van Pelt, and Sally Brown. They'll all be released in July 2015.
One of the surprise hits of the winter television season was Marvel's Agent Carter. Funko didn't wait long to get the main character into their Pop! Marvel line with the Agent Carter Pop! figure. She's apparently in a rather festive mood in red, white, and blue. What is it that she's holding in her hand?
