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!"
Funko has announced that their Marvel POP! series of 3.75" tall vinyl figures will be released next week. The figures include Wolverine, Thing, Red Skull, Spider-Man, Iron Man, Hulk, and Captain America. My favorite would have to be The Thing.
In September 2011, Funko will be releasing a pair of new series. They'll be releasing some Hip Hop and Rap icons in stylized vinyl form. The 7" tall Hip Hop Urban Vinyl Figures will be available as Notorious B.I.G. and Tupac (shown above), as well as upcoming versions of Rev. Run, DMC, Chuck D and Flavor Flav.
They'll also be adding Notorious B.I.G. and Tupac to their POP! Rocks line. That will take place in June 2011. Thoughts?? I'm sure there will be some.
It didn't take someone very long to put a sound chip in a Charlie Sheen sculpted bobblehead. Entertainment Earth has announced the pre-order availability ($12.99 each) of this "winning" Charlie Sheen Talking Wacky Wobbler Bobble Head.
Look for this to be released around July 2011 (right around the time when we forget about this...or we're memorializing Sheen). Distributed by Entertainment Earth, this Funko product stands 7 inches tall and speaks six authentic phrases:
• "When you got tiger blood and Adonis DNA, man, it's like... you get with the program, dude."
• "Winner, winner, chicken dinner... I don't think so. Winner, winner, SHEEN dinner!"
• "Duh, winning!"
• "I... I... I am on a drug; it's called 'Charlie Sheen'!"
• "Built by trolls. Keep that in mind: phones were built by trolls."
• "Apocalypse me... the jaws of life."
Also being released on August 17th 2010, collectors will be able to get their hands on Funko's The Wizard of Oz Plushies. Yes...this is a license that's - well - very old. But there are still loads of collectors who love the characters. Included in this series are Dorothy, the Scarecrow, the Tin Man, the Cowardly Lion, a Flying Monkey and the Wicked Witch. Like the others in the Plushies line, these will retail around $9.99 each.
Funko will be releasing their Plushies line featuring characters from The Lord of the Rings. These will be released on August 17th 2010. The series will feature four characters: Gandalf, Legolas, Frodo and Orc. Look for these to retail around $9.99 each.
On July 7th 2010, Funko will be releasing their Rock Legends Plushies. The line currently consists of two characters in plush form - Purple Haze Jimi Hendrix and Buffalo Soldier Bob Marley. In addition to those Plushies, Funko will also be dropping the somewhat larger (12" tall) Rat Fink Plushies. Look for the Rock Legends to retail around $9.99 each, while Rat Fink will run about $19.99.
Funko has slated July 7th 2010 as the date that they'll be releasing their series of DC Comics Plushies. Included is the lineup are Plushies of Batman, Superman, Green Lantern and Flash. So you can assemble your own Justice League in plush form. Look for this line to retail around $9.99 each.
