Funko announces a ridiculous amount of new products almost every day — that's what happens when you own licenses to all of the biggest properties in the world. That is why we are here to help you keep track of everything happening in the world of Funko! In today's roundup, we have new looks at products from the worlds of Harry Potter, The Walking Dead, Wonder Woman, Ni No Kuni, and an update on how they are trying to fix the disaster that is checking out on the Funko Shop store.
First up we have Harry Potter. The second wave of Plush looks even better and cuter than the first, with Harry and Ron in their Quidditch uniforms, Hermione in her Snow Ball dress, and big softie Hagrid. The one I will be getting, however, is the adorable Hedwig. Hedwig will look great next to my collection of Porgs! Vynl continues with a Harry and Hedwig two-pack, and we get the duo of Ron and Ginny on their brooms in Pop form. The plush are coming in February, the Vynl pack in March, and the Pops in January.
A sepia-tone edition of Wonder Woman is available right now exclusively on Entertainment Earth. If you want one, find it right here.
Video game favorite Ni No Kuni gets three Pop figures in support of Ni no Kuni: II: Revenant Kingdom. These should be wildly popular, and welcome additions to any gamer's collection. The little creatures with each Pop are adorable, and I want all three of them. These hit stores in February.
The Walking Dead gets another big wave of Pops, with Eugene, Ezekiel, Richard, Negan, and Sasha joining the line. Only two exclusives this time: a zombified Sasha will be exclusive to the Funko Shop, while FYE gets an exclusive of Daryl Dixon in his prison uniform. We are also getting a Negan keychain. That all hits stores in February.
Finally, Funko has released a statement about the checking out process on their Funko Shop page.

This is great, as the process they were using for the 12 Days of Christmas was a disaster. Long waits, product selling out while people were sitting in the queue, sellouts in seconds. It was a mess. The NYCC system was fair and easier for everyone to use. Hopefully until they can get an even more streamlined purchasing option they keep this one around.
