Funko announces tons of new products and licenses every day, let alone every week. It can be a lot to keep up with. So we are here to help. Welcome to the Funko Round-Up! It has been awhile since we have done one of these! Funko news has been a tad light since the barrage of New York Toy Fair, but some new news including new Mr. Bean Pops, tons of NFL Pop Pez, the newest addition to the Pokemon Pops, and the big update to the Funko mobile app have made news this week, so let's dig in!
First up: have you downloaded/updated your Funko app yet? They have combined with Stashpedia to relaunch the Funko app as the most complete catalog to keep track of your collection. Not only can you add your entire collection to the app, but you can see current values, make wishlists, and more. Basically, it really is a combination of the old Funko and Stashpedia apps into one mega-app for collectors. If you used Stashpedia already, you can even migrate your collection over from there. I have played around with it a bit and it is incredibly easy to use. Whip out your phone and download it now!
A whole bunch of new NFL Pop Pez will be hitting stores soon, featuring Pop heads wearing team beanies, hats, and helmets. As a native Clevelander, I am going to pretend that is a Baker Mayfield Pez and will be purchasing it as soon as I see it.
Two new Mr. Bean Pops are coming in June, with him in his PJ's. There will be a chase version as well with him holding a Teddy Bear.
Finally, the newest Pokemon Funko Pop will be Charmander, who follows Pikachu and Bulbasaur. These have been insanely hard to get so far, so hopefully we have a better shot at this one when it is released in May.
