Funko Roundup: Saga, Star Wars, Monster Hunter, Bendy, and More!
Funko never stops announcing things, being one of the most active toy manufacturers around. This week was no different, with a bunch of new products and licences coming. So, let's take a look at some of the new stuff coming to our collections, shall we?
First up is Monster Hunters! The hugely popular game series gets four Pops to start with. I'm sure more will be coming with how popular these games are. I have never played any of them, so the cat Pop raises some questions for me, but they look cool nevertheless. Look for these in February.
Next up are more game-related Pops, as the fan-favorite puzzle game Bendy and the Ink Machine gets the Funko treatment. It's another game that I want to play, just lack the time to do so. These look amazing, however. As an old-school animation fan, just the look of these makes me want all of them. When I first saw them I thought they were from a long-lost Disney film or something. These will be at Hot Topic first exclusively in January then everywhere in April.
Star Wars: The Last Jedi comes out in one week, so why not have even more Star Wars Funko in our lives? First up is some OT Mystery Mini plush keychains. These are pretty adorable, with the Jawa being the one I would want to get for myself. The C-3PO looks hysterical, however. He looks like he has a creepy baby head. We are also getting a Vice Admiral Holdo Pop. Played by Laura Dern in the film, not a ton is known about this character (that I have read, anyway; I'm on spoiler watch), so for now I will temper my excitement until after it opens. These will be in stores in January.
Finally, the latest in the Funko Specialty Series has been revealed, and it is a special version of Alana holding baby Hazel from the mega-hit comic Saga. Specialty Series releases are usually found only in places like comic shops and such, as a thank-you to smaller stores for carrying Funko products. This one might prove to be their most popular yet. Look for that one in stores sometime next spring.
Many of these products can also already be preordered at sites like this one.
