Pixar’s second film of 2015, The Good Dinosaur, is scheduled to hit theaters just in time for Thanksgiving (on November 25th). Arlo, the young Apatosaurus, teams up with a fearless human boy named Spot in order to return home. And Funko has announced the November release of their Pop! Disney: The Good Dinosaur figure. Both Arlo and Spot will be released as Pop! figures...hopefully just in time to go watch the film.
Vinyl Sugar is combining some of the most well-known horror film characters with their cute, child-like Dorbz line. The Dorbz: Horror Series will include Freddy Krueger, Leatherface, Jason Voorhees, and Pinhead. They'll be here just in time for Halloween...so you can scare all of the neighborhood youths with equal parts creepy and cute.
Vinyl Sugar has announced that the Ghostbusters Dorbz will be hitting retailers in December 2015. Peter, Ray, Egon, and Winston will be available in their Dorbz platform. There will also be the first Dorbz chase variants - including a marshmallow covered Ray and a slimed coated Peter.
The whole Belcher family will be getting a Pop makeover, as Funko has announced the POP! Animation: Bob’s Burgers series. Coming in November 2015, the series will include Bob, Linda, Tina, Gene, and Louise all in miniature form. I'm always a little skeptical about how some already animated properties will do in the Pop stylized format, but these look like they fit right in.
You'll be able to collect the entire Bayside High School gang, since Funko has announced the upcoming release of the POP! TV: Saved By the Bell series. Before Dustin Diamond's checkered personal life and Elizabeth Berkley's unique choice in films (add Dustin Diamond into that category as well), Zack Morris, A.C. Slater, Screech, Kelly Kapowski, Jessie Spano, and Lisa Turtle roamed the halls of everyone's favorite fictional school. Look for them all to drop in November 2015.
Vinyl Sugar has announced a slew of new Batman Dorbz figures. The Batman Dorbz Series 1 includes the blue-suited Batman, Joker, Catwoman, Poison Ivy, Riddler, and Scarecrow. They'll be joined in a November 2015 release alongside the newest Dorbz Ridez - the 1966 Batmobile. Yes, that Batman has a slightly different looking cowl (I prefer the 1966 look). And I'm assuming you'll be able to swap out characters from the Dorbz Ridez.
