Every Disney cartoon has a hero and a villain, correct? Well...Funko's making it easy to collect both the good and the bad with their Disney Heroes vs. Villains Mystery Minis. Ariel vs. Ursula...Peter Pan vs. Captain Hook...they're all here in this new blind box series. The set is made up of six heroes and six villains packaged individually, with each hero having a villainous counterpart. Look for them to be available in April 2015.
The Evil Corp x Funko collaboration - Vinyl Sugar - is feeding our sweet tooth with four more Vinyl Idolz. Above, you have the Vinyl Idolz: Ghostbusters trio of Dr. Peter Venkman, Dr. Raymond Stantz, and Dr. Egon Spengler. (Where's Winston?) And below, there's Lloyd Dobler from the Vinyl Idolz: Say Anything.
Each 8-inch scale figure will include a removable base. And these four should be available beginning in May 2015.
Vinyl Sugar is showing off the first pair of figures from the Vinyl Idolz series - a collaboration with the twisted minds over at Evil Corp. The first two Vinyl Idolz are Pedro Sanchez and Napoleon Dynamite from the film of the same name. Each 8-inch tall figure comes with a removable base. But you'll have to wait until May 2015 to get your hands on these.
Funko has announced the Pop! Television: Game of Thrones Mystery Minis Series 2. With the 5th season of Game of Thrones set to start this April, they've announced another series of blind box mini figures.

Vinyl Sugar has officially announced the Vinyl Vixens line, a "brand new collection full of dreamy intrigue". These statues stand on removable bases at over 9-inches in height. The DC Vixens shown here (Harley Quinn, Catwoman, and Poison Ivy) are only the first in a variety of different series from different licenses that will be announced throughout the year. Look for them to start hitting retailers in March 2015.
EvilCorp.tv has posted up the following images from Toy Fair NY15. These are of their Vinyl Idolz series, which is being released in conjunction with Funko under the Vinyl Sugar name. And, as you can see, we might start seeing these being released this coming Summer. I like the selection of licenses that they've chosen and the above video shows what might still be to come.
John Hughes fans don't have to hop in a time machine or wade into their old Laserdisc collection to remember the Molly Ringwald classic film Sixteen Candles. Funko has apparently released a series of four Sixteen Candles POP! vinyl figures featuring Samantha Baker, Ted (The Geek), Long Duck Dong, and Jake Ryan. Now I know you're probably waiting for Pretty In Pink, right? I always mixed up those two films too.
Funko's Vinyl Sugar division has announced yet another series of vinyl toys - the Vinyl Vixens. Apparently, these are female figures...and they obviously have the DC Comics license as seen by the trio of characters shown above.
