This June, Funko will be releasing a series that will likely scare the crap out of my five year old. The Gremlins ReAction series will include the following: Billy Peltzer; Gizmo with Barney (the family dog), a trumpet, and candy cane; Christmas Gizmo wearing a Santa hat and with a keyboard; Mogwai Stripe with a tabletop arcade game; Gremlin Stripe with a chainsaw; Bandit Gremlin with a gun; Cinema Gremlin with his 3D glasses and movie popcorn.
From the upcoming Disney-Pixar film, Funko has released the Inside Out Mystery Minis series. Joining the lineup with Joy, Disgust, Fear, Sadness, and Anger are secret characters Bing Bong and Rainbow Unicorn. This blind box series is available now.
Funko has announced a new addition to their Fabrikations family. Baymax from Big Hero 6 will join the line of 6-inch tall soft sculpted figures. He'll feature a rotating head and a "high-end, lush feel". Your personal healthcare companion should be available in July 2015...and he's not likely to deflate as often as he did in the film.
Marvel's next big feature film will be Ant-Man, starring Paul Rudd as the title character. So it's not surprising that we're starting to see collectibles based on the movie. The latest is the Ant-Man Pop! figures from Funko. This includes both Ant-Man and his nemesis - Yellowjacket. Look for these to be released beginning in June 2015.
While they were some of the most popular characters from Despicable Me, the Minions will be returning in their own film this June. So it's not a surprise that Funko has announced the first series of Minions Mystery Minis. This blind boxed series will feature 12 unique characters. Look for them to be available in the same month as the film opening - June 2015.
Vinyl Sugar has announced the first wave of their Classic Marvel Dorbz. The 3-inch tall vinyl figures will be available in two waves. The first Wave, shown above, will be available beginning in August 2015, while Wave 2, shown below, will be available later in the year.
Funko has announced a new series of Pop! figures...this one based on the stars of Despicable Me and the upcoming film - Minions. The Minions Pop! series features five different figures: Au Naturel, King Bob, Bored Silly Kevin, Cro-Minion, and Eye, Matie. For these Minions, you won't need to wait until the release of the film in June...they're currently available to purchase at your favorite toy shop.
Funko has announced that the original GPK will be available as a Pop! vinyl figure. The Garbage Pail Kids 10-inch tall Adam Bomb figure is set to hit shops in July 2015. You'll be able to relive the 1980's (celebrating 30 years) with one of the most iconic GPKs ever.
Here's something that I've only been waiting for for the past 30 years. Funko will be commemorating 30 years of Garbage Pail Kids with the Garbage Pail Kids Really Big Mystery Mini Series. Each 3.75-inch tall gross-out vinyl will be a 1/12 rarity. You'll be able to pick up classics like Acne Amy, Ghastly Ashley, Leaky Lindsay, and Bony Tony. Look for these to be available beginning in July 2015.
Funko has announced the Marvel Mopeez series of plush toys. These 4.5-inch plush figures are weighted on the bottom to retain a slouchy posture and adorable frustration. These seven will be available beginning in May 2015. They include Hulk, Spider-Man, Deadpool, Rocket Raccoon, Groot, Iron Man, and Captain America.
