Toy Fair 2015: Funko Takes Over The World!

By Brian Goldberg

When I left the Funko Booth at Toy Fair in New York this week, I could only describe my parting emotion as impatient.

Many of the hit brand's 2015 offerings need to be in my collection now. Now. NOW!

My personal favorites from the display were the Garbage Pail Kids Pops both big and small. Characters such as Leaky Lindsay, Nasty Nick and New Wave Dave will be in the standard format while Adam Bomb will be about 12".

The suite of Doctor Who pops were also a feast for the eyes. Funko is including multiple versions of the Doctor and his foes. Whovians, get your pre orders ready.

drwho1 drwho2Doctor Who is not the only British based character set getting their attention from Funko. Harry Potter and his friends from Hogwarts will also be released in 2015.

harrypotter1The Fabrikations sub brand is being expanded with Groot, Darth Vader, Baymax, Hulk, Thor, and Captain America. New materials are being utilized to allow for my characters to be made in this line.

Family Guy, Sesame Street, Avengers, and Arrow will also be produced in Pop form. Mopeez, Funko Legacy, Hikaris, Mystery Minis, Super Vinyl Deluxe, and housewares brands will all be expanded in 2015.

I know it's going to be hard to collect all of the main releases and variants Funko puts out, but I'm sure as heck going to try.
