Funko has revealed their Game of Thrones series of POP! vinyl figure, based on the HBO television series. You'll need to wait a little while, as these won't be available until November 1st 2012.
The series consists of six characters (I'm guessing there will be another series revealed, if these do well): Daenerys Targaryen, Khal Drogo, Ned Stark, White Walker, Tyrion Lannister and The Hound.
Funko has announced a new POP! Television series: The Walking Dead. The quartet of vinyl toys include Rick Grimes, Daryl Dixon, RV Walker, and Bicycle Girl. Now, these are characters based on The Walking Dead television show (not the comic book). Look for the series to be released on September 27th 2012.
Well...KISS has marketed themselves on pretty much anything that exists...so why not team up with Hello Kitty. Funko has announced the Hello Kitty KISS 5.5" Vinyl Figures. Hmm...an interesting mash-up here. You'll be able to pick up The Demon, The Starchild, The Catman and The Spaceman. Okay, I'm going to go listen to Beth now...
On August 30th 2012, Funko will be releasing the Pocket God: Mysterio Minis. Based on the best selling iTunes App, this is Funko's very first 'Blind Box' project. There are 16 different 2.5" tall Pygmy designs, each varying in rarity. No word as to pricing of the line.
On July 5th 2012, Funko will allow you to play a real world version of Plants vs Zombies. The highly addictive video game will be released in Funko's 3.75" tall Pop! vinyl series. There will be three Zombies (Zombie, Conehead Zombie and Disco Zombie) and two Plants (Peashooter and Sunflower).
I guess there's a lack of toys based on the hit comedy - The Hangover. So Funko, via their Pop! Movies series, has announced a July 2012 release of the Alan & Carlos 3.75" tall stylized vinyl figure. I guess everyone who has been pining for a Zach Galifianakis figure will be satiated by this...
On May 17th 2012, Funko will be releasing the second wave of POP! Rocks: Michael Jackson vinyl figures. This pair of stylized figures feature MJ dressed in his Military Jacket or his outfit from the Bad video. Unfortunately, there is no crotch-grabbing-articulation...and he DOES NOT include a Bubbles the Chimp accessory.
Funko has released a pair of new plush toys that might look familiar if you were alive in the 1990's and had basic cable. (Yeah...I know about the show's revival) The Beavis and Butt-Head plushies each measure 9" in height and are currently available to buy. Then you can set them on your couch and make fun of old Judas Priest videos.
