Funko has announced two new additions to their Pop! stylized vinyl figure series. V from V For Vendetta and the Martian from Mars Attacks will be joining the other 3.75" tall Pop! figures. Fans of Guy Fawkes (or Anonymous) will want to pick up one of these...just don't play Slim Whitman's "Indian Love Call" around that Martian.
Here's some big news for fans of Uglydolls. Pretty Ugly will be teaming up with Funko to release some of their most popular characters in Funko's Pop! Vinyl stylized figure line. We'll see Wage, Ox, Ninja Batty Shogun, Little Babo and Ice-Bat released in this platform.
I think that Uglydoll fans will really enjoy these. I like how the characters resemble baby Uglydolls. They are to Uglydolls what Muppet Babies were to The Muppets.
Funko knows that you like breakfast cereal....that's why they'll be releasing a series of branded General Mills Monster Cereal BLOX. The line will consist of three iconic characters: Boo Berry, Franken Berry, and Count Chocula. These will be released beginning on January 2nd 2012.
Funko will be adding a few new series to their BLOX line. BLOX are described as "Urban Art with distinctive cut-out styling and sculpted details, which are displayed in a mostly flat way." The figures stand in around 7" in height.
The DC Comics BLOX will include both Batman and The Joker (with those crazy, hypnotizing eyes). There will also be a KISS BLOX featuring The Demon (Gene Simmons). Both series will be available beginning on December 19th 2011.
Funko will be releasing their Big Bang Theory Wacky Wobblers on November 10th 2011. It appears that only Sheldon and Howard will be released in Wacky Wobbler style. The odd thing is that Sheldon is wearing a Green Lantern shirt on the box and The Flash shirt on the bobble head. I'm pleasantly surprised by the sculpting on these…normally bobble heads don't have the best sculpting work.
It's never too early to begin thinking about Christmas...right? Well, Funko agrees with me. They are showing off photos of their upcoming Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer Pop! Series. The 3.75" tall vinyl figures will be available beginning on November 10th 2011. Get your Santa Claus, Rudolph and Bumble ready for your holiday television watching.
Funko will be releasing their POP! Star Wars: Series 2. These are Funko's stylized vinyl versions of some of the most well-known Star wars characters, including:
Luke Skywalker Jedi, Obi-Wan Kenobi, C-3PO, Boba Fett, Darth Maul, and Gamorrean Guard
Look for these to begin hitting retailers around November 10th 2011...just in time for your holiday shopping season.
Funko has revealed the packaging and figure design for their upcoming Gizmo Vinyl Figure, which is a part of their Pop! Stylized Figure line. Fans of the Gremlins films will be happy to get their hands on this 3.75" tall vinyl mogwai.
It's somewhat surprising that it took this long for the band that plasters its name on just about anything to team up with Funko to release a new line of KISS Plushies. Now, you can line up your favorite band members and rock out to some 'Beth'.
Fifteen year ago...I would have been psyched for these. In August 2011, Funko will be releasing their talking Beavis and Butt-head Wacky Wobblers. Each talking figure features four quotes...check 'em out below:
"I'm gonna have my own show. It's gonna be called, Big Boobs & Fire!"
"So umm, hey, how's it goin?"
"Come to Butt-Head."
"Uhh, Sir? I'm afraid I'm gonna have to kick your ass."
"Whoa! That's cool!"
